MILLIONS of pounds of taxpayers’ money is being poured into financing terrorist propaganda, it emerged last night.
Some of the cash is even being used to fund school textbooks which teach children in Palestine to worship violence and hate all non-Muslims.
The money has also been spent on school books praising the “insurgents” killing British troops in Iraq, a report revealed.
Tories and Jewish leaders expressed outrage at the revelations and called for an urgent investigation into how the Palestinian Authority has used £47.5million in British aid over the past year.
Shadow Foreign Office Minister David Lidington said he was “disturbed” by the findings of the TaxPayers’ Alliance report. He added: “It is imperative that future generations are taught a message of reconciliation and mutual understanding.
“I have contacted both the Palestinian representative in London and the United Nations Relief Agency to discuss the issues the TaxPayers’ Alliance has raised.”
Former Tory home security spokesman Patrick Mercer said the way the money was being used was “grotesque”.
“It worries me deeply that taxpayers’ money is being used, quite improperly, for destructive purposes,” he said.
“While aid needs to be directed to the needy, its abuse for terrorist purposes is grotesque.”
Former Labour MP Lord Janner said the report was “concerning”.
Lord Janner, a previous President of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, added: “It’s vital that Palestinian children are not indoctrinated with anti-Jewish and Israel hatred.”
But the report, by analyst Matthew Sinclair, says that British aid “is helping to fund ‘hate education’ and promote violence.” It gives examples of programmes on the Palestinian Authority’s official TV station.
One sermon on November 10, 2006, proclaimed: “We want to kill the Jews. Kill them one by one, make their children orphans and their wives widows.”
Another attacked anyone who refused to become a Muslim. It said: “God’s enemies are the enemies of the religion! Count them and kill them.”
