US lawmakers reintroduce bill to address hate, violence in Palestinian schools

(April 6, 2021 / JNS) A bipartisan group of U.S. lawmakers has reintroduced a bill to require the U.S. State Department to address hate and violence in the Palestinian school curriculum.

The measure—the Peace and Tolerance in Palestinian Education Act (H.R. 2374)—was introduced by Reps. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.), Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.), Josh Gottheimer (D-N.J.), David Trone (D-Md.) and Brian Mast (R-Fla.). It calls on the State Department to take a number of steps to monitor the Palestinian Authority educational curriculum, such as:

  • A determination of whether content and passages encouraging violence or intolerance towards other nations or ethnic groups have been removed from such curriculum;
  • An assessment of the steps the Palestinian Authority is taking to reform such curriculum at schools to conform with standards of peace and tolerance in the Declaration of Principles on Tolerance by the U.N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization;
  • A determination of whether U.S. foreign assistance is used, directly or indirectly, to fund the dissemination of such curriculum by the Palestinian Authority;
  • A detailed report on how U.S. assistance is being used to address curriculum that encourages violence or intolerance towards other nations or ethnic groups;
  • A detailed report about U.S. diplomatic efforts in the last five years to encourage accountability in Palestinian education.

“The United States has provided millions of dollars to support the education of Palestinian children with the stated goal of equipping Palestinians with the tools to build a democratic, secular and politically moderate Palestinian civil society as a driver for peace. As a result of the GAO’s findings, it is necessary for Congress to request additional reports from the State Department to ensure U.S. taxpayer dollars promote dignity and tolerance, and that the educational materials such schools employ do not incite hatred,” said Sherman.

He added that “last Congress, this bill passed the Foreign Affairs Committee unanimously. I hope to work with my colleagues to build on this support and secure the passage of this bill in the 117th Congress.”

The bill’s reintroduction was praised by IMPACT-se, a research, policy and advocacy organization that monitors and analyzes education.

“The curriculum taught in Palestinian Authority and UNRWA schools eradicates the possibility of peace. It incites Palestinian children to violence and encourages them to acts of jihad and martyrdom. This has gone on for far too long,” said IMPACT-se CEO Marcus Sheff. “This bill’s welcome reintroduction will send a clear message that Congress will not tolerate the teaching of hate and anti-Semitism in Palestinian schools.”
