Condemning the Iranian Educational System

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC

Mr. ROSKAM. Mr. Speaker, on display in Jerusalem at the Yad Vashem museum, the Holocaust museum, amidst all the pain and suffering and murder and turmoil, are German schoolbooks from the 1930s that display an attitude that was getting pumped into young Germans through their educational system. And as fearful and as loathsome as that is, there is the same thing that's happening in Iran today.

The Iranian educational system has excerpts that suggest that martyrdom is praiseworthy, and it urges children to welcome it. It is laced with anti-Semitism, anti-Israeli sentiment, and anti-Western sentiment.

I'm introducing a resolution today that condemns that, calls upon us to focus on it, and urges the administration to consider that as it interacts with Iran, particularly on these sanctions. I urge my colleagues to join me.
