Arthur Cohn Honored by UNESCO: Blasts Palestinian Textbooks for Breeding Suicide Terror

(Jerusalem Post) Tom Tugend - Six-time Academy Award winning film producer Arthur Cohn was honored on Nov. 12 at a gala banquet in Dusseldorf, Germany, with an annual award by the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, and he used the occasion to warn UNESCO against the breeding of future terrorists in Palestinian schools. Cohn received his biggest applause when he urged elimination of "schoolbooks, TV programs, and teaching methods that are preaching hatred and train for terror." "We must not forget that the intimidating phenomenon of suicide bombers - who in effect are genocide terrorists - has its roots in Israel and meanwhile has brought lots of mischief and mourning into the whole world, from the United States and England to Indonesia, Iraq and now Jordan, which has been bred in the schools of the Palestinian Authority. In these schools, the children are educated from the youngest age to celebrate terrorists as heroic martyrs and to emulate them. UNESCO must face the challenge to see to it that only positive human values are taught in the initiatives it supports," Cohn said.
