Abstract:

Violent ideology is fostered by promoting religious extremism within the Pakistan madrassah system and the Palestinian National Authority educational system. Success in countering this methodology may lie in the ability of the U.S. to engage the international community to contain this threat. The purpose of this research was to determine if the Pakistan madrassahs and Palestinian education systems promoted extremist ideology and if so, determine how the global community can effectively reduce and contain this trend. The research method used for this paper was the problemsolution method. This research method found that both school systems contribute to the education and promotion of violent ideological causes, though the exact level of this threat is not fully known. The entire educational system of both countries lends credence to this threat and requires international attention. This research recommends addressing this problem by pursuing a commitment from the respective national governments leadership, increasing oversight of conditional monetary aid, and the creation of an international education authority.
