Islamic Education in U.S. Hostile to Israel

(Jerusalem Post) Danielle Ziri - Islamic education curricula in the U.S. project hostility toward Israel and distort the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, according to a study by the Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School Education (IMPACT-SE). "When discussed at all, Israel is presented by the curricula as a usurper and referred to on occasion as Palestine. There is no discussion of peaceful solutions to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict," the report states. In one curriculum, published in Saudi Arabia for use in the U.S., "the West is associated with a variety of social ills and immorality. Islam and Muslims are portrayed as being under constant threat and thus forced to fight, through jihad."
