EU Parliament resolves to remove hate from Palestinian textbooks

The European Union’s parliament advances legislation geared to prevent hateful content in Palestinian textbooks.

“The European Parliament… insists that educational material financed by Union funds, including PEGASE (Mécanisme Palestino-européen de Gestion de l’Aide Socio-économique), comply with the common values of freedom, tolerance and non-discrimination through education adopted by education ministers of the Union in Paris on 17 March 2015,” the legislation reads.

The PEGASE fund is the main source of EU funding to the Palestinian Authority.
