Book Glorifying Arch Terrorist Spotted at UNRWA’s Nuzha Preparatory Girls’ School

As part of a campaign for World Teachers Day, UNRWA recently featured some of their educators, including one Mohammad Awwad of the UNRWA Nuzha Preparatory Girls’ School.


“My motto in life is this: I want students to escape to me, not away from me. That’s the kind of teacher I aspire to be and hope that I am.”  These are the words of Mohammed Darwish Awwad, a teacher at the UNRWA Nuzha Preparatory Girls School in Jordan, generously funded by the United States, who has been teaching Arabic language for 27 years.  A writer, poet and member of the Jordanian Writers Association, he is one of more than 20,000 UNRWA teachers in the Middle East region who are at the center of education recovery during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. 

He sounds like quite the guy! Except what is he doing pictured in front of a book glorifying Izz ad-Din al-Qassam, the jihadist whose name the Hamas terrorist organization uses for its armed wing?

This book is in the library of UNRWA Nuzha Preparatory Girls’ School, a school held up as a school encouraging human rights.

If I was a donor to this school, I’d be furious. Unless I was a donor who hated Jews, of course.
