The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) was created in 1950 to carry out direct relief and works programmes for Palestine refugees, and is unique in terms of its long-standing commitment to this vulnerable group of refugees.

 

Canada has been a prominent supporter of UNRWA since its inception, but under the previous government, was the only donor to have ever withdrawn funding.

For Immediate Release: September 25, 2013

The “Disappearing Palestine” wall mural at the Vancouver City Centre skytrain station was stolen by vandals over the weekend. The mural was recently extended for a second month thanks to a special donation to the Palestine Awareness Coalition by Vancouver lawyer, activist and former city councillor Tim Louis. The mural will be replaced shortly.

“This disruption will not silence our ad campaign. It is striking that our campaign was chosen in an attempt to silence the simple truth,” said Marty Roth of the Palestine Awareness Coalition.

Dichter cancels U.K. trip over fears of 'war crimes' arrest
By Barak Ravid, Haaretz Correspondent

Public Security Minister Avi Dichter canceled a trip to Britain over concerns he would be arrested due to his involvement in the decision to assassinate the head of Hamas' military wing in July 2002.

Fifteen people were killed in the bombing of Salah Shehade's house in Gaza, among them his wife and three children, when Dichter was head of the Shin Bet security service. He is the first minister to have to deal with a possible arrest.

Dichter was invited to take part in a conference by a British research institute on "the day after" Annapolis. He was supposed to give an address on the diplomatic process.
Dichter contacted the Foreign Ministry and sought an opinion on the matter, among other reasons because of previous cases in which complaints were filed in Britain and arrest warrants were issued on suspicion of war crimes by senior officers who served during the second intifada.

The Foreign Ministry wrote Dichter that it did not recommend he visit Britain because of a high probability that an extreme leftist organization there would file a complaint, which might lead to an arrest warrant. The ministry also wrote that because Dichter was not an official guest of the British government, he did not have immunity from arrest.
