Palestinian Textbooks Are Still Teaching Students to Hate Jews

(Forward) Marcus Sheff - A recent study by the Georg Eckert Institute (GEI), surveying PA textbooks, noted that while the PA includes values of human rights, the textbooks "do not apply these notions to Israel." Violence against civilians is characterized as "a legitimate means of resistance." In math and science exercises, Newton's Second Law of Gravity is taught using Palestinians attacking Israeli soldiers. Speaking about the GEI report, EU Parliament Vice-President Nicola Beer stated: "Depicting Jews as dangerous, demonizing them, perpetuating anti-Jewish prejudices is just upsetting. But reading about schoolbooks...glorifying terrorist Dalal al-Mughrabi, presenting cold-blooded violence against civilians, including a lot of children, as resistance leaves me speechless." Israeli students live under the constant trauma of murderous Hamas and Hizbullah rocket fire and the threat of the next Palestinian terror attack. But they are taught empathy, respect for the other, and to desire peace. The writer is CEO of the Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School Education (IMPACT-se).
