A new study criticizes Israeli school books, claiming they portray the Palestinians negatively. According to a source who read the final report, “the Israeli side emphasizes the series of disturbances, while the Palestinians claim that Israel is the result of imperialist acts. One of the main conclusions is that each side sticks to its own narrative.” Furthermore, the study criticizes Israeli textbooks for not showing the Green Line, and claims that the textbooks in Israel’s ultra-Orthodox community are “the closest to the Palestinian textbooks in their treatment of the other side,” according to one source.
