In Virtual Lesson, Palestinian Teacher Glorifies Terrorist that Killed 38 Jews

May 1, 2020

According to the Times of Israel, Nasser al-Rajabi, an Arabic teacher at a Palestinian Authority school in Hebron, uploaded a virtual grammar lesson for students to study while at home during the coronavirus pandemic that glorifies the 1978 Coastal Road Massacre that killed 38 Israeli civilians. The reading comprehension lesson was uploaded to Youtube by al-Rajabi and has since been viewed 11,000 times. The lesson was twice shared on the Wasyah Al-Rasoul elementary school for boys’ Facebook page, where al-Rajabi teaches.

According to the Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School Education (IMPACT-se), an Israeli NGO that reviews Palestinian textbooks, the lesson is based on a 2019 Palestinian Authority Arabic-language textbook for fifth graders. IMPACT-se CEO Marcus Sheff said the Hebron teacher’s video demonstrates that “even when studying at home, Palestinian children cannot escape the hate. The violence and incitement of the official Palestinian curriculum is being neatly migrated online by official and unofficial educational initiatives and fed into their living rooms.”

In the 1978 attack, several Fatah terrorists who had landed on a beach near Tel Aviv hijacked a bus on Israel’s Coastal Road and killed 38 civilians, including 13 children. The attackers wounded more than 70 others.
