‘Jesus was a Palestinian,’ claims a history textbook in use in every state of the U.S. Jesus was in fact a Jew. Palestinians are ethnic Jordanians, from the territory once occupied by Moab and Ammon. Well, look on the bright side. At least Jesus is now being acknowledged as a historical figure instead of a myth. History books are the one of the worst for spreading factual errors. Science books are also full of inaccuracies. Add to that the dumbing down of English and Math texts, and it is no wonder Americans are exiting the public school system at record rates.
