Washington - Representative Anthony D. Weiner (D-Brooklyn/ Queens) and 23 other Members of Congress recently called upon Secretary Hillary Clinton to direct the State Department to conduct an annual review of Saudi Arabian textbooks that teach historical inaccuracies, propagate the subjugation of women, and educate their children to hate Jews, Christians and other non-Muslims.

In a letter to Clinton, the bipartisan coalition of members pointed out that every year Saudi Arabian officials assure the United States that these textbooks will be reviewed and that offensive, inaccurate material will be removed. Yet each year, Saudi officials do little to reform the system and continue to educate a new generation of Saudi children with dishonest, hateful teachings.

Weiner released a report last month that found that despite repeated claims from Saudi officials since 2003 that current Saudi textbooks no longer include “inappropriate” language, Saudi textbooks continue to use the same hateful and violent speech towards Jews, Christians, other non-Muslims and women.

The most recent language approved by the Saudi Department of Education, says Weiner’s office, teaches young students that Jews should be killed, that Muslims who convert, question, or doubt Islam must repent or be killed, and that parents have the right to force their children into marriages against their will.

During President Obama’s first trip to Saudi Arabia, Rep. Weiner wrote a letter to the President urging him to address these hate-filled teachings in his meetings with Saudi leaders.

The Saudis have been responsible for all the hate textbooks in the all the Arab countries. Have you been wondering what the Saudis do with their money?
They do not spend a penny to help their "brother" Arab Moslem Palestinians in the refugee camps. They don't build houses for them, they don't create industries to hire Palestinians or give them jobs of any kind. They don't open hospitals for them, and they don't give them money.
Only one million "refugees" live in the Israel. there are three million Arab Palestinians who are locked in refugee camps in Lebanon and Jordan. They have less freedom than the Israeli refugees. The Saudis do not help them either.
However, here is what the Saudis do spend money on during the past 61 years of the refugee camps in Israel. According totheir tradition, they are not allowed to work, so they hire tens of thousands of foreigners todo the work for them. But they still have more money left over from the petro trillions, yes, trillions.
They publish textbooks full of hate and they smuggle in weapons and give money to terrorists to murder Jews, sometimes called, Zionists, sometimes called Israelis. They pay for muders of Jews all over the world. To them, what is the big deal about textbooks?
The Saudis hate the Jewish people because they are following the koran. Mohamed was extremely angry with the Jews because they rejected his approach and did not accept his "prophecies" so he tried to please them by changing things around. When the Jewish leaders of Medina first heard of the coming of a prophet preaching belief in one God, they were intrigued. They did not immediately accept or reject him, but they wanted to know more (Ibn Ishaq, 192). Relations began to deteriorate as the Jews discovered Muhammad was not very familiar with their scriptures and traditions. The rabbis would taunt him with questions he could not answer (Ibn Ishaq, 351). He was mortified.

Mohamed tried to impress them and decided that Muslims were to meet for prayer on Friday afternoon as Jews prepare for their sabbath, they were to face Jerusalem in prayer as Jews do, they were to observe some of the Jewish dietary laws, as well as the fast on the Day of Atonement. Muslims called this the fast of Ashura, meaning "tenth," since the Day of Atonement falls on the tenth of the Jewish month of Tishrei. Certain foods were no longer to be called "kosher" now they would be called "halal."

Muhammad changed the qibla (direction of prayer) to Mecca in place of Jerusalem. Yet, he hated them and decided to teach all future Islam to also hate them. Mohamed chopped off the heads of 600 Jews who belonged to a Jewish group which lived in Arabia at that time called, "Banu Quraiza." He then took their wives and children and gave them to various friends and divided up their property and kept one fifth for himself.

Today, 1,400 years after Mohamed, they still hate the Jews. If you ask them why, they will tell you, "Because the koran teaches that, so we follow the koran."
The Saudis are the ones who hate the Jews most. Their textbooks are loaded with hate. Of course they hide their hate by calling their 'religion" the religion of love.
Mr. Obama bowed to King Abdullah when he visited there recently. I saw the video of him bowing. It was a 90 degree bow, meaning Mr. Obama's legs were straight until his waist, and then the rest of his body was straight out at a right angle. Why?

Good point, which clinton knows. She gave speaches about teaching the PLO children to hate when she spoke to jewish groups. But its being swept under the rug so as not to offend anyone. Thank you Weiner. You hit the nail on the head.
