Hate Education for Iranian Children

Where does the anger and the hate come from? It’s not the grievances, it’s not the poverty. It’s the ideology that is taught to children in Islamo-fascist societies from a young age and that the adults continue with indoctrination. Here the AJC documents the education the children get in hate– hate the West, Hate the Jews, Hate the Christians….

Iranian Schools Teach Children Hatred of Christians, Jews, United States

August 28, 2006 New York – Iranian children are indoctrinated in basic hatred of Christians, Jews and the West, concludes a new study of textbooks used in Iran...

Ayatollah Khomeini, the father of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, is quoted in an 11th grade textbook, Islamic Viewpoint, preaching confrontation with the non-Muslim world. “I am decisively announcing to the whole world that if the world-eaters wish to stand against our religion, we will stand against their whole world and will not cease until the annihilation of all them,” says Khomeini. “Either we all become free, or we will go to the greater liberty which is martyrdom. Either we will shake one another’s hands in the joy of the victory of Islam in the world, or all of us will turn to eternal life and martyrdom. In both cases, victory and success are ours.”

Meanwhile, Israel, which is not recognized in any way and whose name does not appear on any maps in Iranian schoolbooks, is portrayed as a danger to the whole world of Islam and as a tool in the hands of Islam’s enemy, America.

An 11th grade geography book states: “Another problem [faced by the Muslim countries] is the regime that occupies Jerusalem (Israel), which has been created in this area as a basis for America and other aggressive powers, with the aim of taking over Muslim lands.”

In the case of the inevitable Iranian war with the U.S., Iranian children are taught to regard Jews in “Palestine” as garbage to be cleared. Gifts of Heaven, a third grade picture storybook, depicts the inhabitants of a tidy town chasing away a repugnant creature that spreads garbage wherever he goes. The Star of David, the Jewish symbol, is on the creature’s arm, and in one of the pictures it is seen as part of the garbage.

“Degrading Jews and Judaism in Iranian schools reinforces the severity of the Iranian president’s frequent threats to annihilate Israel,” said Harris.

Iranian textbooks reflect “an educational system that prepares school children for war and martyrdom against the West in general, and against the United States and Israel in particular,” conclude Groiss and Toobian. “The continuation of this way of thinking and indoctrination inside the system under the presidency of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad should alarm all individuals and governments that cherish the principles of peace and international cooperation.”……….
