An unpublished report commissioned by the European Union in 2019 found clear evidence of Palestinian textbooks inciting to violence and antisemitism and was kept from the public by the European Commission, the German newspaper Bild reported Tuesday. The 200-page report, commissioned by then EU foreign affairs representative Federica Mogherini, examined 156 textbooks and 16 teaching curriculums issued by the Palestinian Authority between 2017-2019, as well as 18 books published in 2020. The study’s findings indicated well rooted inciteful learning materials in nearly all textbooks that it covered. They also pointed to serious failings in the supervision of such materials – mostly funded by the EU – while ironically going against the organization’s core values. Examples found by the German researchers include the glorification of terrorists and suggested “educational” activities that include group discussions about “the attempts of the Jews to kill the prophet Mohammed.”
