Referred to House (sub)committee

2 cosponsors.

On Saudi Arabia, “if the reform process is not accelerated, the Saudi educational system could produce another generation of jihadi inspired terrorists.” On the PA, “education reform in the Palestinian Authority must take place before any lasting Israeli-Palestinian peace will ever be achieved, and for a true democracy to flourish in a future Palestinian state.” Through this resolution Congress, “urges Saudi Arabia to cease teaching Wahhabism and instead find an alternate, more benign form of Islamic teaching.” Regarding Palestinians, it urges the PA to “officially recognize and accept Israel in maps and textbooks, “remove any inciteful dialogue about jihad and martyrdom,” and that educational reforms in both places is a necessary component of the global war on terrorism.
