UNRWA and HaAretz condemn "Children's Army of Hamas" without seeing the film.
Recently, IBA TV news anchor Yaakov Ahimeir, senior journalist with Israel Broadcasting Authority TV and host of the IBA weekend news program known as "Roiem Olam", http://www.iba.org.il/olam/ screened "Children's Army of Hamas" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iO4UKXmr8zk , as news item no. #3. Ahimeir credited the Center for Near East Policy Research, under the direction of David Bedein, as producers of the news item.
In May 2014, David Bedein published a book, "ROADBLOCK TO PEACE- How the UN Perpetuates the Arab-Israeli Conflict: UNRWA Policies Reconsidered" (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/9659233906) where chapter six documented Hamas military indoctrination inside the UNRWA schools.
An editorial comment on the Hebrew website of the newspaper f Haaretz echoed Gunness http://tinyurl.com/lgnzjwd asking how it was that a "nine minute propaganda news item" could possibly be featured on a prestigious news show such as " Roiem Olam", and called Ahimeir's credentials into question.
In response, Ahimeir asked why Gunness did not notice the statement in the film, on camera, of Ismal Radwan, Hamas Minister of Religion, who praised cooperation of UNRWA with Hamas, saying that "Hamas and UNRWA are directly connected".
Gunness & HaAretz never watched "Children's Army of Hamas" before responding.
