Jewish groups are calling on the United States and Canada to suspend payments to UNRWA until a probe into the U.N. agency’s alleged links to Palestinian terrorism is completed. The calls by the Simon Wiesenthal Center regarding both countries, and by B’nai Brith Canada regarding Canada, came after the head of UNRWA, Peter Hansen, admitted that members of Hamas are working for UNRWA, the U.N. agency for Palestinian refugees.
