- Palestinian School Curriculum “More Radical than Before” – Talia Kaplan
The Palestinian Authority’s current school curriculum “is more radical than the curriculum that came before” and “is suffused with ideas of martyrdom [and] Jihad,” according to IMPACT-se, a research institute that analyzes how textbooks measure up to UNESCO standards for acceptance, peace and tolerance. The curriculum encouraged children to martyr themselves, and even to count martyrs in math problems like most children would count apples.
IMPACT-se’s CEO Marcus Sheff noted that there “is a strategic decision by the Palestinian Authority to radicalize 1.3 million school children. This curriculum was not created by accident.” He wants Palestinian children to be “taught that the way to resolve conflict is through peacemaking and not continual war.” (Fox News)
