The Palestinian Authority schoolbooks, including those ones in UNRWA use, feature 3 fundamentals in the context of the conflict:

1. De-legitimization of Israel’s existence and the Jews’ very presence in the country, including the denial of their history and the existence of any Jewish holy places there.

2. Demonization of both Israel and Jews, also religiously – with serious implications regarding the Jews’ image in the eyes of children who come from a traditional society.

3. The absence of call for peace with Israel. Instead, there is a call for a violent struggle for the liberation of the whole country, including pre-1967 Israel.

This struggle is given a religious color and terror is made an integral part thereof, with the accompanying meaning of encouraging the murder of Jews.
This paper focuses on the attitude of the Palestinian schoolbooks to Jews only. It does not elaborate on these books’ attitude to Israel as a state and to the methods of the war against it.
