UNRWA Tweets in Support of Infamous PFLP Terrorist; Blames It on “Unauthorized Access” to Twitter Account
UNRWA continues to show just how in bed with the terrorists they are.
In a rare move, UNRWA, the UN refugee agency for Palestinians that is largely funded by EU states, deleted a tweet after a watchdog group protested that the post glorified a man who served as spokesman of the PFLP terrorist group when it orchestrated the Lod Airport Massacre in 1972, killing 26 and injuring 80.
UNRWA’s tweet called Ghassan Kanafani a “famed” writer, and echoed complaints by Arab Israelis after Jerusalem ordered the removal of a memorial to the terrorist leader installed in the city of Akko (Acre).
After deleting its tweet, UNRWA then issued a statement on Twitter that blamed “unauthorized access” for the pro-PFLP tweet.
.@UNRWA backs Ghassan Kanafani, spokesman of PFLP terror group when it perpetrated 1972 Lod Airport Massacre, killing 26—17 Christian pilgrims from Puerto Rico, a Canadian citizen & 8 Israelis—and injuring 80. Why do EU, UK, Germany & Canada fund UNRWA? https://t.co/7dXIuJsBll pic.twitter.com/QDMW5z3lVe

There has been a brief, unauthorized access to UNRWA’s twitter account. Measures are in place to prevent a reoccurrence. UNRWA is in the process of changing the password for its twitter account.

I have posted about Ghassan Kanafani before. Here’s a reminder as to just how evil he was.
If he was just a writer, then that tweet was really the result of “unauthorized access.”
