SAUDI ARABIA – Saudi Arabia’s Textbooks Encourage Violence Against Christians
International Christian Concern | Dec. 1, 2018
The New York Daily News reports that Saudi Arabia has failed to remove extremist content promoting violence against religious minorities from the educational curriculum for 2018-2019 school year.
Saudi Arabia had previously pledged to remove all incitement content from its textbooks by 2008 and the government continues to allege that this issue has long since been resolved. However, other reports say otherwise. The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) issued a study this past March which says that the curriculum contains incitement content which had been thought removed.
