Hudson Institute's Center for Middle East Policy recently held a discussion on
Meyrav Wurmser, Shayan Arya, and Arnon Groiss
Preparing Iran's Children for Global Jihad
As debates rage about Iran's nuclear intentions, educational textbooks may serve as one of the more candid guides for discerning this regime's worldview and ideology. The Center for Monitoring Peace in the Middle East (CMIP) has recently published the most comprehensive survey on this subject, and argues that Iranian textbooks indoctrinate students into the global jihadi mindset. These books depict a regime that divides the world into Manichean forces of "good" and "evil" that are destined to clash. To better clarify these and related issues, CMIP researchers Arnon Groiss and Shayan Arya covered the report's detailed findings as well as discussed the implications for the United States and the rest of the international community.
Meyrav Wurmser is the Director of the Center for Middle East Policy at Hudson Institute.
Arnon Groiss is the Director of the Research at the Center for Monitoring the Impact of Peace. Groiss' career includes more than 30 years as an Arabic-language journalist and he presently holds the position of deputy director at Israel Broadcasting Authority's Arabic Radio.
Shayan Arya is a member of the Constitutionalist Party of Iran and a Fellow at the Center for Monitoring the Impact of Peace.
