The European Union has released its report on Palestinian Authority textbooks four months after its completion, showing instances of antisemitism and incitement to violence. Friday’s release of the report – excerpts from which were first published in The Jerusalem Post earlier this month – sparked condemnations across the European Parliament. The report, completed in February, includes dozens of examples of encouragement of violence and demonization of Israel and of Jews. Twenty-two members of the European Parliament from a range of major parties demanded last week that EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen withhold aid to the PA over the books, which “preach antisemitism, incitement and the glorification of violence and terrorism... violating fundamental EU values and our declared goal to help advance peace and the two-state solution.” EU Parliament Budgetary Affairs Committee Vice Chairman Niclas Herbst called for 5% of EU funding to the PA and UNRWA, the UN agency for Palestinian refugees, to be withheld and redirected to NGOs that adhere to UNESCO education standards.
