Iranian Schoolbook Discrimination
Iran’s brutal theocratic regime based on 7th century values teaches its children that males and Muslims are superior to females and non-Muslims, a groundbreaking new study reveals.
The government of Iran is teaching the country’s children to discriminate against women and minorities, to view non-Muslims with suspicion and contempt, and to perpetuate the regime’s theocratic ideology, Freedom House said in a new report released today.
According to the report, “Discrimination and Intolerance in Iran’s Textbooks,” prejudice is deeply ingrained in the textbooks that make up the core of Iran’s school curriculum. Part of the regime’s deliberate effort to instill specific values in school children, Iran’s textbooks systematically denigrate the importance of women as individuals, neglect minority groups, propagate Shi’ite egocentrism, and encourage hostility toward non-Muslim countries.
In other news, the sky is blue and water is wet.
I suppose it’s worth documenting evil but, really, anyone likely to care about this already knew it and no one who believes Iranian values are on par with the West’s is likely to be dissuaded by the study.
