UN and Hamas start overlapping officially

In UN Dollars for Terror, Arlene Kushner goes into the inner workings of UNRWA, my favourite UN organization.
As I've commented before, UNRWA is the ONLY UN organization dedicated to one single group of refugees, in this case refugees going into their 4th generation!
UNRWA is also the ONLY refugee organization IN THE WORLD whose ENTIRE staff (and I use this word in the loosest possible sense, namely in the sense of "all personnel") consists of the very refugees itself!
In February of 2002, the Israelis arrested Ala’a Muhammad Ali Hassan, a member of Tanzim (Fatah’s armed faction) in Nablus. Hassan admitted he had carried out a sniper shooting from the UNRWA-run school run in the al-Ayn refugee camp near Nablus. More significantly, he reported that bombs intended for terrorist attacks were being manufactured inside the school’s facilities.

Shortly thereafter, in the spring of 2002, during Operation Defensive Shield, Israel Defense Forces entered the UNRWA camps in response to horrific terrorist attacks and discovered there small-arms factories, explosive laboratories, and suicide bombing cells.

A report made by the Fatah unit in Jenin to Marwan Barghouti, then head of the Tanzim, was picked up by the IDF during this operation. It said the Jenin refugee camp is “characterized by an exceptional presence of fighters”, while it was also not surprising that the camp is known as the “suiciders’ capital.”
So this is the link: UN->UNRWA->UNRWA Workers' Union->HAMAS
So pervasive is this situation in the camps that Hamas has gained control of the UNRWA workers’ union. In the Gaza Strip, the 2003 elections for union representatives saw Hamas-affiliated candidates gain substantial majorities in all union sectors, securing control of all seats in the teachers’ sector. Moreover, Hamas candidates fully constitute the union’s executive committee.
Pleas please please read it. And then tell me with a straight face the UN is good idea.
