Excerpts from Saudi Ministry of Education Textbooks for Islamic Studies: Arabic with English Translation
Center for Religious Freedom
This appendix is a companion document to "Saudi Arabia's Curriculum of Intolerance with Excerpts from Saudi Ministry of Education Textbooks for Islamic Studies." The appendix includes selected excerpts in Arabic with English translations for currently-used textbooks in grades 1, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12. These excerpts support the report conclusion that the Saudi public school religious curriculum continues to propagate an ideology of hate toward the "unbeliever," (Christians, Jews, Shiites, Sufis, Sunni Muslims who do not follow Wahhabi doctrine, Hindus, atheists and others), and that this ideology is introduced in a religion textbook in the first grade and reinforced and developed throughout the public education system. (Contains 53 footnotes.) [For primary document, see ED500608. This document was developed by the Center for Religious Freedom of Freedom House with the Institute for Gulf Affairs.
