UK Schools ‘Indoctrinating Palestinian Terrorism’
The UK’s National Union of Teachers (NUT) has been accused of indoctrinating British youth with Palestinian terrorism, in its new teaching resources pack that discusses Palestinian “occupation, freedom and resistance” from what has been revealed to be a “warped” perspective.
NUT designed the pack – entitled “My Name is Saleh” and launched in April at the union’s annual conference – in partnership with Edukid, a children’s education charity, reports the British Telegraph on Monday.
The one-sided focus of the educational materials is apparent from the images of the pack, which show a Palestinian Arab child who allegedly was “assaulted by settlers.” The video launched with the pack particularly refers to “Jews” rather than “Israelis.”
Responding to the project, Tom Wilson of the Henry Jackson Society think-tank said it was “overtly agenda driven,” warning, “we need to be more vigilant about the politicization of British classrooms.”
Wilson noted that the video’s references to Jews risks “inciting tensions between faith communities in the UK,” and he added, “it is a particularly shameless example of political activism masquerading as a legitimate form of education.”
