Report: Palestinian School Curriculum Becoming More Radical – Eldad J. Pardo (IMPACT-se)
The Palestinian elementary school curriculum for 2016-17 is significantly more radical than previous curricula.
To an even greater extent than the 2014-15 textbooks, the curriculum teaches students to be martyrs, demonizes and denies the existence of Israel, and focuses on a “return” to an exclusively Palestinian homeland.
Children are taught to be expendable (“I shall sacrifice my blood to saturate the land”). Math books use numbers of dead martyrs to teach arithmetic.
