What Do Iranian Textbooks Teach? – Yoram Ettinger (Israel Hayom)
Iranian school textbooks, such as The Quran and Life (Grade 12), prepare Iranian children for the apocalyptic military battle against the U.S. and other “arrogant oppressors of the world,” which are ostensibly led by “idolatrous devils.”
Hebrew University Professor Eldad Pardo, who has researched Iran’s school textbooks over the last 10 years, published a report this month for the Institute of Monitoring Peace and Tolerance in School Education.
He says, “Iran had created a war curriculum to prepare an entire generation for global war, based on Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini’s vision of collective martyrdom.”
“The school textbooks prepare the Iranian people for a constant state of emergency, requiring Iranians to foment revolutions throughout the world.”
