Israel, Jews and Peace in Schoolbooks and Teachers’ Guides Used in UNRWA Schools in Judea, Samaria,East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip

Within Palestinian schools, mandated textbooks propagate three core beliefs: denying Israel's existence and Jewish history, demonizing Israelis, and advocating violence instead of peace. This indoctrination, evident in UNRWA schools, shapes young minds in Judea, Samaria, Gaza, and East Jerusalem, perpetuating conflict and hostility.

The article "Israel, Jews and Peace in Schoolbooks and Teachers' Guides Used in UNRWA Schools in Judea, Samaria, East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip" examines the content of Palestinian Authority educational materials used in UNRWA schools. It identifies three main arguments:

  1. Delegitimization: The educational materials delegitimize Israel's existence and Jewish historical connections to the land, replacing Israel with "Palestine" on maps and in narratives.

  2. Demonization: Both Israel and Jews are depicted negatively, using derogatory terms and portraying them as existential threats.

  3. Promotion of Violent Struggle: The curriculum advocates for violent resistance rather than peaceful resolution, glorifying jihad and martyrdom.

These points are repeatedly reinforced through various teaching methods and activities designed to inculcate these views in students​ (Jewish Virtual Library)​ .
