A Dutch publisher that previously created school textbooks accusing Israelis of ethnic cleansing has released a new volume omitting Jerusalem’s significance to Jews.
What they mean is that Zionism is omitted and ignored! Palestinian Jews have always existed in Palestine!
JTA — A Dutch publisher that previously created school textbooks accusing Israelis of ethnic cleansing has released a new volume omitting Jerusalem’s significance to Jews.
The omission occurred in a textbook about social issues titled “Plein M” by Nordhoff Publishers for preparatory middle-level applied education level schools, including public schools. It states Jerusalem is holy to Muslims and Christians, but does not mention its holiness to Jews.
It also states that Jews and Christians were “mostly treated well” by Arabs throughout history.
In 2015, the same publisher defended a history book that states that David Ben Gurion, Israel’s first prime minister, declared statehood after “Jewish militias carried out murders in Arab villages, and hundreds of thousands of Palestinians fled and settled in refugee camp across the border.” That book does not mention Arab atrocities during the same conflict.
The Dutch education ministry has a relatively liberal policy as to which textbooks may be used as teaching materials, placing such choices at the discretion of schools and, at times, individual teachers.
Typical example of Israeli leaders exploiting Jews to promote Zionism!
Leiberman is trying to scare Diaspora Jews with ‘Antisemitism’ woes just to hike up the immigration to #Israel.
He says that remaining ‘Jewish’ in Diaspora is in danger, he probably means remaining Zionist. pic.twitter.com/Gwk1O9HZVg
