Hamas wins control of UNRWA employees union

Since UNRWA knowingly hires terrorists, it should surprise no one that Hamas has won control of the UNRWA employees' union in the Gaza Strip, winning two thirds of the vote in an election on Wednesday. As you may recall, UNRWA recently accused Hamas of stealing supplies from it.
In the elections for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) union in Gaza, held Wednesday, the Hamas-controlled Islamist bloc won 17 out of 27 seats. PLO-affiliated factions won nine seats, with the last seat going to an independent candidate.

In the UNRWA union's legislative body in Gaza, seats are divided among the various employee sectors. Significantly, Islamist candidates won all 11 seats reserved for teachers. The services sector representatives are divided between Hamas (4) and a PLO-supported coalition (5). Four seats designated for labor union members went to the PLO coalition and two to Hamas.

Candidates representing the Islamic Jihad terrorist group also ran in the elections, but obtained no seats. Approximately 10,000 UNRWA employees in Gaza took part in the voting.
What a great way to ensure that another generation of 'Palestinian' kids grows up to 'martyrdom.'
