  • UK Schools Teaching “Pro-Palestinian Extremist Agenda” – Camilla Turner
    An “extremist agenda” is being taught to children as young as three, it has been claimed, with the UK National Union of Teachers (NUT) accused of “spreading political propaganda” in classrooms by promoting Palestinian “resistance.” The NUT has designed and promoted a teaching resources pack which asks teachers to explore themes of Palestinian “occupation, freedom and resistance.” The resource pack’s accompanying video contains references to “Jews” as opposed to “Israelis.”
    Tom Wilson, from the Henry Jackson Society, a think-tank, called the project “overtly agenda driven” and warned: “We need to be more vigilant about the politicization of British classrooms….It is a particularly shameless example of political activism masquerading as a legitimate form of education.” Sam Westrop, the director of Stand for Peace, a counter-extremism think-tank, said that by teaching school children that Palestinian “resistance” against Israel was a worthy cause, the “NUT’s political propaganda and misrepresentation serves the extremist agenda….The law is crystal clear: all political discussions in school should be unbiased and balanced.”  (Telegraph-UK)
