Saudi textbooks still preach intolerance and hatred, says NBC News.
Nina Shea’s group — the Center for Religious Freedom — examined textbooks used during the past school year, and found the following teachings, which were verified by NBC News:
* Jews and Christians are “enemies” of Muslims.
* Every religion other than Islam is “false.”
* “The hour [of Judgment] will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them.”
. . . What’s more, an eighth grade text equates Jews with “apes” and Christian infidels with “swine.” A tenth grade text teaches that the life of a Muslim is worth twice that of a non-Muslim.
Furthermore, the texts are said to be better than they used to be.
