As such, the report concluded that the curriculum does not meet the UNESCO-derived standards of peace and tolerance in education.

The latest Palestinian Authority elementary school textbooks are even more radical than previous editions, according to a report just issued by the Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School Education.

The report was based on examination of elementary- school grades one through four and high-school grades 11 and 12 of the 2016-2017 PA’s educational curriculum.

The new textbooks showed deterioration in messages of tolerance and peace compared to previous editions.

They teach pupils to become expendable martyrs and reject negotiations, while demonizing and denying the existence of the State of Israel, according to the findings.
