A government minister has admitted that more than £20 million of British aid money is being spent on schools in Palestine that teach children about jihad and martyrdom.
A report by the Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School Education reveals that the Palestinian Authority school curriculum 'utilizes a variety of tools to convince children—mostly boys—to risk their lives and die as martyrs'.
Alistair Burt, the aid minister, admitted in parliamentary answers that British taxpayers are funding the salaries of 33,000 teachers who follow the curriculum that also promotes violence against Israel.

The report also revealed that the word Israel 'typically appears as the Zionist Occupation' throughout the curriculum which has been accused of exerting pressure on young Palestinians to be martyrs.
It goes on to highlight some of the lessons that are being funded by British aid.
A science textbook Newton's second law of physics by using an image of a boy with a slingshot targeting soldiers, to explain power, mass, and tensile strength.
It reads: 'Palestinian youths used slingshots to confront the soldiers of the Zionist occupation and defend themselves from their treacherous bullets. What is the relationship between the elongation of the slingshot's rubber and the tensile strength affecting it?'

Meanwhile, a maths book for nine-year-old students teaches them to count up and work out the number of Palestinian martyrs.
Another textbook encourages nine-year-olds to be martyrs with a picture of students looking at an empty desk with the sign 'The Martyr'.
A poem in a history book also glorifies martyrdom and calls for violent resistance against Israel.
It reads: 'I vow I shall sacrifice my blood to saturate the land of the generous and will remove the usurper from my country.'
