Great, they promise. So I promise to commend them when they fulfill the promise. Until then, I'll just leave this latest oath in the steaming pile with the rest they've extruded over the years:
Following The Jerusalem Post's report Tuesday that Palestinian textbooks contained references to the Protocols of the Elders of Zion as an "integral part" of Zionist history, the Palestinian Authority has promised to remove the mention from future textbooks.
- Oslo promise to settle all differences through negotiation
- Promises to confiscate illegal weapons
- Roadmap commitment to end incitement (sounds vaguely familiar, where did I read something like this recently, hmm)
- Sworn intention to eliminate the Jewish State (probably shouldn't include this one, because it's not for lack of trying)
Hmmm. How could it possibly have happened? I guess I'll join in the puzzled head-scratching about this one and just hope it doesn't happen again, Inshallah.
The government has begun reevaluating why the mention was not caught by the "screening process," which included an Arab-speaking staff that read through the textbook and approved them as not being anti-Semitic.
