The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s textbooks have a significance that many others do not.Most of the 9/11 terrorists, as well as Osama bin Laden himself, were born and educated in Saudi Arabia. As revealed in an American diplomatic cable released by Wikileaks, as recently as December 2009 American government officials believed that Saudi donors remained among the chief financiers of Sunni militant groups such as al Qaeda.
In another instance, a 12th grade textbook from the 2010-2011 edition asserts that the reason why there are Muslim minorities is that non-Muslims “occupy Islamic lands,” and proceeds to list as examples: the Balkan states, Romania, Bulgaria, Greece, “East Turkistan” in China, and Kashmir in India. They promote a belligerent worldview that seems designed to prime the students for future hostilities based on religious identity.Twelfth grade texts from the 2010-2011 edition continue to explicitly promote militant jihad for “spreading Islam” by “fighting unbelievers.” In this context, these geographyand history lessons, factually distorted as they are, and rife with fear mongering, appear to incite violence against much of the world.
