The Trouble with Textbooks
The Trouble with Textbooks by Gary A. Tobin and Dennis R. Ybarra
School textbooks in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and elsewhere in the Arab and Muslim worlds are filled with anti-Western and anti-Israel propaganda. Most readers will be shocked to discover that history and geography textbooks widely used in America’s elementary and secondary classrooms contain some of the very same inaccuracies about Jews, Judaism, and Israel. Did you know that ‘there is no record of any important Jewish contribution to the sciences?’ (World Civilizations, Thomson Wadsworth). Or that ‘Christianity was started by a young Palestinian named Jesus?’ (The World, Scott Foresman/Pearson). Supplemental materials and other classroom influences are even worse. The Trouble with Textbooks exposes the poor scholarship and untruths in textbooks about Jews and Israel.
