NY Public Schools Promote Course Justifying Suicide Bombings

The aftermath of a Hamas suicide bombing in Jerusalem on June 11, 2003, which murdered 16 people.

Perhaps the most revolting aspect of leftism is their shameless indoctrination of children.

Leftism, like all fascist movements, concentrates much of their propaganda efforts on the young. Hitler, Stalin, Mao and Fidel all used the machinery of government to replace family and religion with a belief in and loyalty to the state. The American left follows their model. The IslamoNazis who seek to annihilate the Jewish state have formed an alliance with the American left. Thus, it’s no surprise that PBS is the organ of choice for this anti-Semitic propaganda.

PBS, an anti-Semitic machinery of propaganda,  should be defunded.

A lesson plan developed in New York state and promoted by the New York State Education Department called “Dying to be a Martyr,” features video interviews with Islamic terrorists who explain why their attacks on Israelis are justified, according to an investigation by The Blaze.

For the last decade, the plan has been offered to teachers through the taxpayer-funded Public Broadcasting Service’s “LearningMedia” website. The PBS website offers “a media-on-demand service offering educators access to the best of public media and delivers research-based, classroom-ready digital learning experiences.”

The lesson plan is geared for high school-age students. As The Blaze reports, “There are no instructions in the lesson plan for teachers to denounce these views and no videos are featured showing the Israeli response.

“Among the other biased aspects of the lesson plan are instructions for teachers to ‘Check for understanding by asking students to respond to the focus question. (Mohanned, feels he would rather die and by a martyr than live his life, sees his life as hollow—in contrast he sees Israelis as happy, going out, having fun, traveling.) Ask your students why Mohanned may feel that way (Answers may include: Palestinians have less land, fewer privileges, cannot come and go as they please.)’”

A further investigation by the news outlet showed that until the expose on the lesson plan was published, it was being promoted by the New York State Education Department (NYSED). After a request was made for comment by state officials, NYSED’s website was changed and the lesson plan was dropped.

However, the plan was still listed on another NYSED website as well the promotion of a video titled “Story of Islam: A History of the World’s Most Misunderstood Faith.”

The Blaze reports that out of 40 items included on the website, “Dying to be a Martyr” was the only complete lesson plan listed.

The author of the plan is a long-standing public teacher in upstate New York. Requests for comments by The Blaze from the author as well as the NYSED  were ignored.

Comment Rules


Seraphic Secret is private property, that's right, it's an extension of our home, and as such, Karen and I have instituted two Seraphic Rules and we ask commentors to act respectfully.

  1. No profanity.
  2. No Israel bashing. We debate, we discuss, we are respectful. You know what Israel bashing is. The world is full of it. Seraphic Secret is one of the few places in the world that will not tolerate this form of anti-Semitism.

That's it. Break either of these rules and you will be banned.

    Defunding anti-semitism is a good thing, but if you want to push that program, the UN might be a better starting point than PBS.
