’Zionist Occupation,’ Call To ‘Martyrdom’ Still Central Focus of Palestinian Education


by Hilger, Correspondent

(Worthy News) – The new textbooks have not changed much from the virulent antisemitism of the older editions, according to Algemeiner.

A report by the Institute for Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School (IMPACT-se) shows that even apparently neutral subjects like math in the newer editions are laced with propaganda against the Israeli state, with one exercise asking students to compare the number of terrorists elevated to martyrdom in the First and Second Intifadas.

The first round of textbooks was published after the Oslo Accords in the early 90s, and observers hoped they would be improved upon when the PA announced 3 years ago that it was changing its textbooks, but to no avail.

PA Education Minister Sabri Saidam has complained that will not use his organization’s textbooks to teach Arab children—textbooks that fail to acknowledge the borders of ancient or modern Israel, and instead posit a Palestine running from the Jordan to the Mediterranean to where “Zionist occupiers” currently inhabit the land.

The and , which have contributed hundreds of millions of dollars to the development of the textbooks, are currently engaged in a review of their content due to be released later this year.
