Outrage over German funding of Palestinian schoolbook praising terrorists
The Palestinian female terrorist Dalal Mughrabi, who was involved in the murder 38 Israelis, including 13 children, in 1978, was defended as a martyr in the Palestinian school material.
A German member of the federal parliament urged Chancellor Angela Merkel's administration to explain on Monday why tax payer funds are being used to stoke Palestinian hatred and violence in school books, including praise for the Black September group’s murder of 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics.

Responding to a BILD news article that exposed German financing of the Palestinian Authority’s education department, Frank Müller-Rosentritt, a MP for the Free Democratic Party, wrote on his Twitter feed: “Unbelievable, children should receive an education for a better future, not be educated for hate and violence? Federal government must provide an explanation. German tax money should not flow into terror propaganda.”

According to the BILD report, based on a study by the organization Impact-se, Palestinian textbooks are filled with examples of the glorification of terrorism.

BILD wrote that the Black September attack and Palestinian airplane hijackings are presented as “success” stories. According to the school material, the murders of the Israeli athletes are commented on as a “strike against Zionist interests abroad.”

The kidnapping of airplanes by the US and EU designated terrorist entity the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) is termed “Operations against Zionists” in the school material.

The Palestinian female terrorist Dalal Mughrabi, who was involved in the 1978 murder of 38 Israelis, including 13 children, was defended as a martyr in the Palestinian school material.

One school book omits Israel’s existence on a map of the Middle East region. The German government provided over €32 million to the Palestinian Authority for a four-year period. An additional €25 million from the German government and funds from other countries were provided to the Palestinian Authority.

“We support an independent investigation of Palestinian school books,” said a spokesperson for the German government, adding “The results are already expected in early 2019.”

The Jerusalem Post reported that Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union Party shelved a motion at its party conference in December to stop payments for Palestinian terrorists who murder Israelis.
