Iranian Textbooks Urge Global MartyrdomTopics: Iran
Iranian human rights activist, Ghazal Omid, praises a new study that finds textbooks used in Iran's schools are instilling students with hatred toward the West, especially the United States, and urging them to become "martyrs" in a global holy war against countries perceived to be enemies of Islam. He goes so far as to claim that the hard-liners in Iran are using the books to turn children into "ticking bombs."
Robert Spencer finds it interesting that "U.S. academic" Shireen T. Hunter contradicts Omid.
