Saudi Arabia: Are you an ape or a swine?

October 19, 2012
"A pig is an animal with dirt on his face..."

“A pig is an animal with dirt on his face…”

Consider yourself lucky: atheists don’t even get a mention!

A ninth-grade textbook published by the Ministry of Education states, “The Jews and the Christians are enemies of the believers, and they cannot approve of Muslims.” An eighth-grade textbook says, “The Apes are the people of the Sabbath, the Jews; and the Swine are the infidels of the communion of Jesus, the Christians.” These are just two examples of a long list of hate-filled passages.

Children who are indoctrinated with such hatred are susceptible to engage in bigotry and even violence. Hate speech is the precursor to genocide. First you get to hate and then you kill. This makes peaceful coexistence difficult, if not impossible.

The Daily Beast — appropriately enough.
