Earlier this year, it was reported that school books with content including the words ‘martyr’ and ‘attack,’ for children (funded by taxpayers) were in use. Activists revealed after promises made by Theresa May, that these books are still present. Amazingly, plays put on at schools and summer camps have even included pupils staging mock executions.
The school books, which were introduced in September 2017, teach ten-year-olds that ‘drinking the cup of bitterness with glory is much sweeter than a pleasant long life accompanied by humiliation’.
Terrorists – including Dalal Mughrabi, who led the 1978 ‘Coastal Road Massacre’ in which 38 Israelis including 13 children were murdered on a bus – are described as ‘heroes’.
The books also contain violent poems which extol the virtues of ‘sacrificing blood’.
Miss Ryan first raised the issue of the textbooks with Mr Burt in September 2017.
In March, Theresa May promised a review of the curriculum, pledging that it would only ‘take several months’.
