Saudi schools; 2+2=kill the Jews

Nothing has changed in years, as to the hatred of non-Muslims and Jews found in Saudi school textbooks.  The authorities have paid lip service to calls for reforms and removal of the offending and vile books, but nothing meaningful has been done.  The re-arranging of passages is about all that has been done, no hiding of hate or removal of Islamic doctrine.

The new thing now is to show high school students how to amputate a thief's hand and foot, with drawings of the proper way to detach, where to cut and other gruesome details.  There is no end to the brutality and seething hate inculcated within the young in Saudi Arabia, yet we ask no questions, or demand answers from our "frenemy" in Arabia.

I guess another, more strongly-worded letter will be sent, and a vigorous finger-wagging right after that.

Extremist Teachings Remain in Saudi Textbooks Despite Kingdom's Claims of Reform

Despite Saudi Arabia's promises to clean up textbooks in the kingdom, recent editions continue to raise alarms in the West over jihadist language.

The recent editions were obtained by the Institute for Gulf Affairs in Washington, D.C., and the translations were first provided to Fox News.

“This is where terrorism starts, in the education system.” Ali Al-Ahmed, director of the Institute for Gulf Affairs, told Fox News. Al-Ahmed, a Saudi national, said the textbooks, made and paid for by the Saudi government, were smuggled out of the kingdom through confidential sources.

In a textbook for 10th-graders, printed for the 2010-2011 academic year, al-Ahmed said teenagers are taught barbaric practices. “They show students how to cut (the) hand and the feet of a thief,” he said. In another textbook, for ninth-graders, the students are taught the annihilation of the Jewish people is imperative. One text reads in part: “The hour (of judgment) will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them. ... There is a Jew behind me come and kill him.”

Here is the complete hadith;
   “The prophet, prayer and peace be upon him, said: The time [of judgment] will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews and kill them; until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him!” (Sahih Muslim book 41, no. 6985)"

But I am the Islamophobe when I bring this up.  

According to the textbook translations provided to Fox News, women are described as weak and irresponsible. And al-Ahmed said the textbooks call for homosexuals to be put to death "because they pose a danger at society, as the Saudi school books teaches.”

Al-Ahmed say the textbooks are both a Saudi and an American problem. “If you teach 6 million children in these important years of their lives, if you install that in their brain, no wonder we have so many Saudi suicide bombers.”
