Palästinenser in israelischen Schulbüchern

Es ist nichts Neues, dass die Geschichte Palästinas und der Palästinenser in israelischen Schulbüchern von Staats wegen diktiert wird.

Die Jerusalemer Professorin Nurit Peled-Elhanan hat dazu eine detaillierte Untersuchung vorgelegt.

Das Blog JewishPeace schreibt dazu:

Nurit Peled-Elhanan, a long time peace activist and an academic, has just got her book „Palestine in Israeli School Books: Ideology and Propaganda in Education“ published by I.B. Tauris.

Part of the publisher’s description of the book:

„She analyzes the presentation of images, maps, layouts and use of language in History, Geography and Civic Studies textbooks, and reveals how the books might be seen to marginalize Palestinians, legitimize Israeli military action and reinforce Jewish-Israeli territorial identity.“

This conclusion isn’t exactly news. Each one of us who has been through the Israeli educational system has experienced this.
