|JERUSALEM (November 23) - Hostile Palestinian attitudes toward Israel as
expressed in their schoolbooks have not improved at all in the last four years,
according to the findings of a new survey conducted by the Center for
Monitoring the Impact of Peace (CMIP).
After reviewing 58 textbooks being used in the Palestinian Authority school system for the years 2000-2002, the CMIP found no mention of Israel - which is perceived as a usurper or occupier - or its right to exist. Neither is there any mention of the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians, nor any reference to the land of Israel, its cities or villages, on maps, said CMIP vice chairman Yohanan Manor.
