Report: New PA Textbooks More Radical Than Previous Editions 


The latest Palestinian Authority elementary school textbooks are even more radical and show a deterioration in messages of tolerance and peace compared with previous editions, according to a new report by the Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School Education. They teach pupils to become expendable martyrs and reject negotiations, while demonizing and denying the existence of the State of Israel, the Jerusalem Post.

“Despite assurances from the PA Education Ministry, these new books are actually more radical than we have previously seen,” IMPACT-se CEO Marcus Sheff said. “There is clear evidence of a strategy of radicalization of young Palestinians, devised and implemented by the ministry, which includes a commitment to an Arab Palestine encompassing the entirety of Israel.”

IMPACT-se analyzes schoolbooks for compliance with UNESCO-defined standards on peace and tolerance. Its report concluded that the PA curriculum does not meet the UNESCO standards.
