Horrifying: Arizona School Districts Pushing Pro-Hamas Propaganda to Children

Progressives aren’t only trying to indoctrinate children into their views on race, gender identity, and sexuality. Against the backdrop of the Israel-Hamas war, they are also working to influence young students to believe their views on the overall Israel/Palestinian conflict.


A story coming out of Arizona further illustrates the anti-Israel propaganda that is being infused into school curricula.

The Arizona superintendent of education is warning all districts in the state to avoid using information or collaborating with any Amnesty International USA and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) education division after a high school club affiliated with the student wings of the organizations put on a presentation that he believed white-washed Palestinian terrorism.

Jewish students were left feeling unsafe at Desert Mountain High School in the Scottsdale Unified School after "one-sided propaganda in favor of Hamas terrorists" was shown to students, according to parents who spoke with FOX News Digital on background. The briefing on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict referred to the Second Intifada, a terror campaign which killed hundreds of American and Israelis in suicide bombings in civilian areas, as "demonstrations." The presentation, the parents said, also referred to Hamas' Oct. 7 terror attacks as "retaliation."

Superintendent Tom Horne sent a letter to districts throughout the state that was reviewed by FOX News Digital, after he was alerted to the presentation. He called the presentation "profoundly antisemitic in nature" as well as "anti-American," because it blamed the U.S. for the plight of the Palestinians.


In essence, Amnesty International USA and UNICEF are trying to downplay and whitewash the actions of Palestinian terrorists against Israeli civilians while blaming most of the problem on Israel. In the letter, Horne explained that he seeks to “warn the schools to avoid these organizations that are antisemitic and tell them that they should keep them off their campuses, just as you would want to keep the Ku Klux Klan off your campus.”

To give a sense of perspective, the Second Intifada, which took place between 2000 and 2005, was one of the bloodiest time periods in the history of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. A substantial number of casualties, both civilian and combatant, occurred on both sides as the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and Palestinian terrorist groups engaged in frequent clashes.

In particular, Palestinian terrorist groups deliberately targeted Israeli civilians, just as Hamas did in its surprise attack against Israel on October 7. The violence of the Second Intifada claimed the lives of about 3,000 Palestinians and 1,000 Israelis, along with 64 foreign nationals.

The notion that these attacks were mere “demonstrations” reveals just how depraved these presentations were. This is a brazen effort to promote antisemitism and anti-Israel sentiment among young children in schools.


But this is not the only example.

In Brooklyn, New York, a student walkout event organized by a local parent advisory board was reported to have included antisemitic chants shouted by high school students. During the march, they yelled “Allahu Akbar” and “F*ck the Jews.” This prompted an investigation into the Community Education Council, which organized the event.

In October, thousands of high school students in Dearborn, Michigan, walked out to protest Israel’s retaliatory strikes against Hamas after the October 7 attack. The students chanted slogans like “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” which is a favorite among Hamas and other terrorist groups.

In far too many school districts, children are being indoctrinated with this anti-Israel propaganda. It would not be surprising to find out that, in at least some cases, parents are unaware of what is being presented to children.
