British Lawmakers Introduce Bill to Slash Funding to Palestinian Schools That Promote Hate

A bill to prohibit British aid money from funding Palestinian schools that promote violent and discriminatory themes was introduced in parliament on Tuesday.

Put forward by MP Louise Ellman, vice chair of Labour Friends of Israel (LFI), the measure aims to prohibit international development assistance from reaching Palestinian Authority (PA) schools “that do not promote values endorsed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization,” otherwise known as UNESCO.

It would also require the government to annually report on how such development assistance supported the promotion of those values.

The PA “is acting as a transmission belt” for hatred and prejudice, Ellman told colleagues in the House of Commons, including by naming “schools, summer camps and sports tournaments after terrorist murderers and Nazi collaborators.”
