- Hate-filled indoctrination and training in violence is not limited to the “schools” of ISIS or Boko Haram. Public schools all around the Muslim world share elements of this indoctrination. Most recently, a March 2021 study exposed how the school curriculum of Turkey — for decades one of the Muslim world’s most secular nations — is also increasingly full of jihadi propaganda.
- “The Turkish curriculum has been significantly radicalized in recent years. Jihad war is introduced as a central value; martyrdom in battle is glorified…. Concepts such as “Turkish World Domination” … are emphasized. The curriculum adopts an anti-American stance and displays sympathy toward the motivations of ISIS and Al-Qaeda…. Christians and Jews are characterized as infidels instead of People of the Book…. The curriculum demonizes Zionism and verges on anti-Semitic…” — “The Erdoğan Revolution in the Turkish Curriculum Textbooks,” IMPACT-se, March, 2021.
