The Center for Near East Policy Research has acquired the new Palestinian Authority school books used in the PA and UNRWA schools in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria & Gaza.

The U.S. State Department informed the Center that the new PA school books are devoid of incitement and conform to the standards of peace education.

Are the new PA school books a show case for peace education?

That was not what the Center found when it evaluated PA school books issued in 2013.

The Center has therefore hired senior academics to examine the new PA school books and present their findings to the UN, the Israel Knesset Parliament, the US Congress, the British Parliament, the Canadian Parliament , the Australian Parliament and other influential legislative venues.

In order to maintain its independence and integrity, the Center seeks private sponsors to cover the costs of purchasing, translating and publicizing its findings.

Here are the non profit avenues where sponsors can send funds to reveal what children now learn in the schools of the PA and UNRWA:
