Pupils at Islamic schools across Britain are being taught how to chop off a criminal’s hand and that Jews are conspiring to take over the world, a BBC investigation found yesterday.

Up to 5,000 pupils aged between six and 18 are being taught Shariah law punishments using “weekend school” textbooks which claim those who do not believe in Islam will be subjected to “hellfire” in death.

A textbook for 15-year-olds advises: “For thieves their hands will be cut off for a first offence, and their foot for a subsequent offence.”

“The specified punishment of the thief is cutting off his right hand at the wrist. Then it is cauterized to prevent him from bleeding to death,” it added.

Young pupils are warned that the punishment for engaging in homosexual acts is death by stoning, burning with fire or throwing off a cliff and that the “main goal” of the Jews is to “have control over the world and its resources.”

The schools are part of the “Saudi Students Clubs and Schools in the UK and Ireland” organization. The BBC investigation claimed that one school in London is owned by the Saudi government.

Education Minister Michael Gove told the BBC program: “I have no desire or wish to intervene in the decisions that the Saudi government makes in its own education system.

“But I’m clear that we cannot have anti-Semitic material of any kind being used in English schools. Ofsted (Britain’s education watchdog) will be reporting to me shortly.”

英國廣播公司一則調查報導昨日表示,全英國伊斯蘭學校小學生受教導如何砍下罪犯的手,並且被告知猶太人密謀統治全世界。

有多達五千名年齡自六歲到十八歲學生,利用週末課餘時間參加伊斯蘭教教法班,班上教導不信伊斯蘭教者,靈魂將於死後受到「地獄火」的酷刑。

一本給十五歲學童的教科書是這樣寫的:「初犯的竊賊將遭切除雙手的懲罰,如果再犯則切除腳部。」

課本還說:「對於竊賊的懲罰第一次得於手腕處切除右手。隨後燒灼切除的傷口,以防止竊賊血流致死。」

年輕的學生們也獲警告,表示有同性戀行為者將被石頭砸死、以火燒死,或者從懸崖上丟下去,並且猶太人的「主要目的」就是「控制全世界與其資源」。

這些學校與「英國和愛爾蘭沙烏地學生會與學校」的組織有關聯。英國廣播公司的這篇調查報導表示,當中有一家在倫敦的學校是由沙烏地政府所擁有。

教育部長邁克爾‧戈夫告訴英國廣播公司:「我無意也不想介入沙烏地政府於自己教育體系中規定的事情。」

「但我明確地表示,英國學校裡不能有任何反猶太人的教材。教育標準署(英國的教育監察團體)隨後將(針對此事)向我報告。」(法新社/翻譯:吳岱璟)
