B’nai Brith Canada asked the Canadian government to probe whether aid to the Palestinians is being diverted for terrorism. The group’s request was sparked by renewed allegations that the Palestinian Authority has used funding from international donors to purchase weapons for terrorist groups and to pay for anti-Semitic propaganda. While Canada does not fund the Palestinian Authority directly, a significant amount of Canadian aid is directed to Palestinian-aid programs and UNWRA-operated facilities.
