American Publishers were shocked when they inspect current Saudi textbooks and find them still teaching children to hate Christians and especially Jews.

From the Daily Beast:

As current and former heads of major American publishing houses, we know the value of words. They inform actions and shape the world views of all, especially children. We are writing to express our profound disappointment that the Saudi government continues to print textbooks inciting hatred and violence against religious minorities.

A ninth-grade textbook published by the Ministry of Education states, “The Jews and the Christians are enemies of the believers, and they cannot approve of Muslims.” An eighth-grade textbook says, “The Apes are the people of the Sabbath, the Jews; and the Swine are the infidels of the communion of Jesus, the Christians.” These are just two examples of a long list of hate-filled passages.

Response: This is really not news and we have written about the bigotry taught in Saudi schools before and in other places in the Middle East. What is news is the naiveté of the American publishers who seem to be steeped in political correctness and not in reality. It definitely reflects the main stream media campaign against Islamophobia, where ignorance has seemingly become not only the norm but is considered to be the high ‘moral’ approach to everything Muslim.

The two ‘examples’ given in the article are taken directly from the teaching in the Quran and despite the protests of the American publishers, they will undoubtedly remain in the Saudi textbooks since they do actually reflect the teaching of the Muslim sacred text.             *Top
