stated a flat-out lie.
Referring to the Gaza war at the UN General Assembly, Ellis said, "This summer, around 2,200 civilians were killed in 50 days."
If 2,200 civilians were killed, then Israel didn't kill a single Hamas or Islamic Jihad or Fatah member!
Of course, the latest research indicates that roughly half of those killed were terrorists, an amazing ratio for urban warfare. Even official UN statistics admit that Israel killed hundreds of terrorists.
But UNRWA officials have no problem lying to the General Assembly in claiming that they are all civilian.
This lie is now enshrined not only at the UNRWA website but also at the UNISPAL archives.
Will UNRWA issue a correction? Given their track record at not admitting mistakes, it seems doubtful.
