Guest essay by Real Jerusalem Streets:

With anti-Israel and antisemitic protests spreading throughout the world, many are asking where could this hate come from. 

A look into Arabic textbooks is a place to start finding answers to the spread of anti-Israel and Jewish protesters being filled with the fuel of jihad.  

Arik Aggasi, COO and head of global partnerships for IMPACT-se (The Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School Education,) presented compelling evidence undermining UNWRA's credibility to international journalists.  

From over 1,000 textbooks published since 2016, the evidence shows a shocking promotion of hate among young children and a deterioration in content, falling far short of UNESCO standards. Some examples included the removal of content discussing peace agreements, negotiations, and the Two-State Solution, as well as the encouragement of violence and demonization of Israel across all grades and subjects, even infiltrating math and science.

IMPACT-se has been diligently monitoring and analyzing education worldwide since 1998. Their aim is to ensure that education complies with international standards of peace, tolerance, and non-violence, as derived from UNESCO declarations and resolutions.   They note UAE, Bahrain, Egypt, and Saudia Arabia have removed some of the hate material. 

IMPACT-se's findings have had a significant impact, such as the European Parliament's decision to freeze parts of Palestinian Authority funding until their curricula align with international standards. A joint report by IMPACT-se and United Nations Watch, presented to Congress, shed light on 47 new cases of incitement to hate and violence by UNRWA teachers and schools, in clear violation of the agency's policies. This report revealed a disturbing pattern of calling for the murder of Jews, glorifying terrorism, and inciting antisemitism within UNRWA's education system.

Norway's decision to cut funding over textbook incitement in December 2020 was met with a defiant response from Palestinian PM Shtayyeh, who declared that the "curriculum will not be surrendered." This resistance to reforming the curriculum, even in exchange for the release of frozen EU funds, was reiterated by PA Foreign Minister Al-Maliki in March 2022.

It is crucial to shed light on these issues and encourage international dialogue to address the root causes of conflict in the region. UNRWA's role in perpetuating hatred and violence through education must be scrutinized. Once Hamas is eliminated, efforts to promote peace and tolerance should be prioritized for the sake of a more peaceful and stable future for all parties involved.

It is time for the world leaders to wake up from woke and see what is written in Arabic, in the UNRWA textbooks. 

Hopefully, it is not too late to stop the fires from spreading. 

Here is a sampling of images provided by IMPACT-se, starting in lower school and included in teachers' manuals encouraging Jew-hatred and murder
