European Union Passes Bill to Promote Anti-Hate Education in Palestinian Schools

This week the Parliament of the European Union adopted new legislation intended to prevent EU aid from being transferred to the Palestinian Authority (PA) for educational purposes from being used to teach hate.

The new bill aims to ensure that all programs financed with EU money “reflect common values such as freedom, tolerance, and nondiscrimination within education.” In accordance with the new legislation, Palestinian textbooks will be examined to proactively maintain that they meet EU and UNESCO standards.

We would like to see the examination of Palestinian textbooks fully enforced along with a plan to document the hate against Israel that has polluted PA youth for way too long. Much damage has been done because of years of anti-Israel hate taught in PA schools.We’d also like to see the EU come up with a plan to de-program these kids from so much hate.
