Despite the coronavirus pandemic shutting down schools operated by the Palestinian Authority, a new report showed that educational materials containing incitement, hatred and violence are now being used extensively online.
The materials were revealed by the Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School Textbooks (IMPACT-se), and showed numerous instances of the disturbing lessons being taught to Palestinian children.
One video shows a teacher using the story of Palestinian terrorist Dalal al-Mughrabi, one of the perpetrators of the 1978 Coastal Road Massacre, in which 38 Israeli civilians were killed, to teach reading comprehension to ten-year-old kids.
