Skip to comments.To Shape Young Palestinians, Hamas Creates Its Own Textbooks
Posted on 11/03/2013 7:36:47 PM PST by Olog-hai
When a class of Palestinian ninth graders in Gaza recently discussed the deadly 1929 riots over access to the Western Wall in Jerusalem, it was guided by a new textbook, introduced this fall by the Islamist Hamas movement.
What Gaza teenagers are reading in their 50-page hardcover texts this fall includes references to the Jewish Torah and Talmud as fabricated, and a description of Zionism as a racist movement whose goals include driving Arabs out of all of the area between the Nile in Africa and the Euphrates in Iraq, Syria and Turkey.
Palestine, in turn, is defined as a state for Muslims stretching from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. A list of Palestinian cities includes Haifa, Beersheba and Acreall within Israels 1948 borders. And the books rebut Jewish historical claims to the territory by saying, The Jews and the Zionist movement are not related to Israel, because the sons of Israel are a nation which had been annihilated.

So they’re not claiming Jordan anymore? Most of Jordan’s population is Palestinian, after all.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
I’m far more worried about the Marxist ideology that is being taught in our own public schools.
How is that more worrying?
As bad as that is, it’s not as likely to spark WWIII as the evidently national-socialist-themed ideology being taught by Hamas (whose name means “violence”).
There’s no such thing as “Palestinian”. It’s a made-up name.
Although Jordanians identify as Arab (how and why, I do not know), they aren’t descended from Ishmael.
Oh, I knew all that. “Palestinian” is a name the Romans invented, a modern version of “Philistine.” The Arabs came along later and took the name for themselves.
As for the Arabs, they were a mixture of many tribes before the time of Mohammed. South of Mecca, the main tribe was called the “True Arabs,” and descended from Qahtan (Joktan in the Old Testament). North of Mecca there were the “Ishmaelite Arabs,” who spoke Aramaic instead of Arabic. And then there were some dark-skinned folk called the “Lost Arabs.” The Mahra of South Yemen and the Shahra of Oman are Veddoid (South Indian) in appearance, so they are probably “Lost Arabs.”
Thanks Berosus, interesting.
