Saudi Arabia still has considerable steps to take when it comes to erasing hate and anti-Semitism from its society, the Anti-Defamation League's David Weinberg told Newsmax TV.

Weinberg appeared on Wednesday's "Newsmax Now" and said he recently looked thorough the latest textbooks Saudi Arabian children are using — and he saw they are filled with racist tones that incite violence and hate.

"Unfortunately, the textbooks still contain extensive incitement to hatred or to violence against Christians, against Jews, against Shiite Muslims, against women, against gay men, even against anybody who mocks or converts away from Islam," said Weinberg, the ADL's Washington Director for International Affairs.

He added that the books are an indicator that Saudi Arabia's modern society is still focusing on the wrong things — and that it will never truly "modernize" until schools there teach children more appropriate content.

"The kingdom has taken some really undeniable, significant reforms on some issues — including some social and religious issues, like granting women the right to drive and scaling back the religious police," he said.

"But frankly, the kingdom's own efforts to modernize are going to be forever incomplete so long as these sorts of teachings are still in their educational system."
