UNRWA: reform or abolish

I always thought that the key to resolving the conflict is education:

STANDWITHUS LAUNCHES CAMPAIGN AGAINST US TAXES FUNDING UN HATE EDUCATION
UNRWA has provided an internationally-funded system of schools and social services for the 1948 Palestinian refugees and their descendants for the past 60 years. But its humanitarian mission has been compromised, according to
accumulating evidence. Too often, its social services and schools
incite hatred for Israel and Jews and glorify terrorists. Many refugee
camps are terrorism centers. Confirmed terrorists are on UNRWA’s
payroll. US taxpayers have funded over one-fourth of UNRWA’s budget
since its founding in 1949.

Roz Rothstein, International Director of StandWithUs:

“UNRWA has been a major obstacle to resolving the Arab-Israeli conflict. Since UNRWA runs refugee schools, it could have been teaching peace all these years.
Just the reverse has been true. We have been paying for hate education.
Rep. Rothman has been a leader in the effort to reform the Agency, and
his bill is one vital step in ending this misuse of our taxpayer money,
abuse of Palestinian children, and perversion of American values,”
