All of the allegation of Bedein have been "demolished" by UNWRA spokespeople.[15]

Since the publication of Bedein's book, Bedein has discovered several new findings concerning UNRWA [5], Islamic groups that fund UNRWA [6] Jews killed the Palestinian Authority Christian Education Texts Used in UNRWA Schools [7] UNRWA Child Death Cult Education [8].

Bedein has been involved in UNRWA Reform Initiative [2], which involves requests of donor nations to make reasonable reforms of UNRWA. Bedein's legal counsel articulated these requested reforms in a letter to the British government DFID Agency which helps UNRWA. [3]. In March 2014, Bedein participated in an informal panel at the British House of Commons with experts on UNRWA education [4].

A review of Bedein's new book, Roadblock to Peace How the UN Perpetuates the Arab-Israeli Conflict: UNRWA Policies Reconsidered, can be found here [1] .

Under the Direction of David Bedein The Center for Near East Policy Research and have produced a number of investigative video productions. In July 2013 they released the film titled "Camp Jihad"[11] allegedly showing activities and interviews in which UNRWA promotes anti-Semitism and incitement to violence in its 'summer camps'. This was not the first time he dealt with this topic.[12] UNRWA released an official rejection of these claims,[13] claiming the summer camp shown, and the people involved are not affiliated with UNRWA. In a November 2013 meeting between US Secretary of State, John Kerry and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, parts of this film were shown.[14]

Mr. Bedein has overseen investigative studies of the Palestinian Authority, the Expulsion Process from Gush Katif and Samaria, The Peres Center for Peace, Peace Now, The International Center for Economic Cooperation of Yossi Beilin, the ISM, Adalah, the New Israel Fund, and United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA).[10] Mr. Bedein has also reported on all of these events and organizations at

Research and media presence

David has developed a speaker's bureau which is offering speeches and presentations, live or via Skype. However, his dubious credentials and biased perspective have limited his media presence.

Most recently, David Bedein's organization has developed Btselem Watch, with its own website whose purpose is to introduce professional criticism and feedback to leading organizations which are described as human rights groups that operate in the political domain.

In the 1980s, Bedein went to Ethiopia as part of a delegation to investigate the impact of the famine on the Ethiopian Jewish community.[9]

Bedein was active in the Israeli peace movement for over for 17 years.[8]


The Center for Near East Policy Research has been instrumental in reaching elected officials, decision makers and journalists, in commissioning studies, reports, news stories and films. In 2010, the agency decided to focus on producing short movies, instead of monographs, and to film each aspect of the UNRWA investigations in a clear and cogent fashion. In that context, Bedein produced two documentary films on UNRWA: Inside the UNRWA Classroom and Camp Jihad in 2013.[6][7]

Bedein has covered attempts at Middle East negotiations centering israel - in Oslo, Ottawa, Shepherdstown, The Wye Plantation, Annapolis, Geneva, Nicosia, Washington, D.C., London, Bonn, and Vienna. Mr. Bedein is the author of Where Has All the Flour Gone? The Whims and Waste of UN Palestinian Refugee Policy.[5] The book documents Bedein's years of investigative journalism focusing on the activities of UN agencies in the Occupied Palestinian Territory and the Middle East.

Mr. Bedein has also reported for news outlets such as CNN Radio, Makor Rishon, Philadelphia Inquirer, Jerusalem Post, and the Jewish World Review.[3] For four years, Bedein was the Middle East correspondent for the Philadelphia Bulletin, writing 1,062 articles until the newspaper ceased operation in 2010.[4] His work is unwaveringly pro-israel, and Mr. Bedein has been found to make unsubstantiated claims against UNWRA and other UN agencies.
