Gaza factions say UNRWA changes to curriculum undercut Palestinian national identity

Gaza factions say UNRWA changes to curriculum undercut Palestinian national
identity

GAZA, November 7, 2017 (WAFA) Ė Gazaís national and Islamic factions said on
Tuesday that they will not agree to changes in school textbooks introduced
by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) for Palestine refugees
that undercut the Palestinian national identity.

They said UNRWA introduced new terms that weaken the studentsí understanding
of the Palestinian identity and culture.

They called on UNRWA not to introduce anything in the schools it runs that
would influence the studentís relationship to his land, identity and
culture.

The factions said UNRWA should not meddle with the school curriculum of the
host country and should teach it in its schools without any changes.

They said UNRWA has created a conflict when it decided to change terms in
the curriculum under the guise of neutrality and enriching the studentís
knowledge.

Palestinians accuse Israel and its allies of pressuring the Palestinians and
UNRWA to change the school curriculum in a manner that would remove any
reference to their history particularly since the Israeli occupation of
their land or struggle for independence.
