Ministers pledged urgent action last night after it emerged that British foreign aid cash is funding schools where textbooks on martyrdom and radical Islamism are used.

The Daily Mail has discovered that tens of millions of pounds of UK foreign aid is helping fund schools in Gaza and the West Bank that use such material in lessons.

The money goes via a UN agency that some other nations have chosen to stop financing because of concerns.

The textbooks include a reading exercise for six-year-olds with the words ‘martyr’ and ‘attack’, plus poems for eight-year-olds which include phrases such as ‘sacrifice my blood’ to ‘eliminate the usurper from my country’ and ‘annihilate the remnants of the foreigners’.

UK foreign aid is helping fund schools in Gaza and the West Bank that use textbooks on martyrdom in lessons. Pictured is a page on Newton’s Second Law, used to teach 11-year-olds, showing the image of a boy with a slingshot targeting Israeli soldiers. A caption alongside it reads: ‘During the first Palestinian uprising, Palestinian youths used slingshots to confront the soldiers of the Zionist Occupation and defend themselves from their treacherous bullets. What is the relationship between the elongation of the slingshot’s rubber and the tensile strength affecting it? What are the forces that influence the stone after its release from the slingshot?’.

Nine-year-olds learn maths by adding the number of martyrs in Palestinian uprisings in textbooks illustrated with pictures of their funerals.

And ten-year-olds learn the most important thing is giving their life for ‘sacrifice, fight, jihad, and struggle’.

Newton’s Second Law is taught to 11-year-olds through the image of a boy with a slingshot targeting Israeli soldiers.

The schools are attended by 325,000 pupils, up to age 16.

The Mail has also learned that teachers who work at them have called for Jews to be murdered, abused them as ‘pigs and apes’ and praised Adolf Hitler.

And the schools are said to be ‘fertile grounds’ for terrorist groups to recruit with scores of suicide bombers and jihadi leaders among past pupils.
