A Hindrance to Peace
This page attempts to bring together several reports regarding education within the Palestinian Authority, a major influence on the long-term success of peace in the region.
It includes previously published material as well as information that we have gathered ourselves. It is a work in progress, and we invite you to visit it often to see our progress. A synopsis of our findings is here.
Palestinian children have suffered throughout the current Intifada. They are used as political pawns, encouraged to participate in violent demonstrations - a clear violation of the Geneva Convention. And their environment, educational and cultural is filled with hate, which is directed against their neighbors.
This site is dedicated to all the children on both sides whose future is being stolen from them through the callous actions of adults whose aim is to fan the flames of mistrust and despair.
