Anti-Semitism/Zionism/Israel IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS

Reader comment on item: [Douglas Card and] My Day in Court

Submitted by Hinda Blas (United States), Dec 7, 2004 at 18:09

While I applaud Mr. Pipes bravery for standing up for what he believes in, the truth is that unfortunately our children ARE being taught the lies and propaganda that Arafat had achieved in his 40+ years of being a terrorist.

I live in California where children for the last four years as young as 12 have been subjected to history books that criticize Israel's right to exist and push the Islamic Agenda. They lie about the Islamic Empire and teachers are suggesting to children to dress and learn to pray like a Muslim. In one school in West Covina the teacher was even telling the children about the Koran and how true it is. While also condemning Jews. It took an Egyptian immigrant who is also Christian to systematically stand up and help form a protest against the school itself. Some teachers even joined her.

Sadly, however, this is not the case throughout the US. From Duke University to San Francisco State University to be Jewish or pro-Israel can be dangerous to your health. In Irvine, California, graduating students of 2004 were allowed to wear pro-Jihad sashes and headbands that homicide bombers wear prior to bombing a bus or restaurant. A public junior high school in San Francisco recently allowed pro-Arafater's have a platform and denounce Israel's right to exist. Columbia University where many people who were Jewish would go for academic education due to the segregation (quotas) of regular universities and colleges of the 30s and 40s now have a regular anti-Israel team of professors who are demanding that their curriculum be included. Stanford University recently accepted a donation from Saudi Arabia but on the basis that they teach Islam.

In 1922 the KKK was allowed to march down Pennsylvania Avenue. In the 1930s throughout the 1940s there was the American Nazi (Bund) party that even had their conventions at Madison Square Garden. Yes, America has made mistakes before in allowing these who wish to destroy people because "they are different" however, when will the US learn from its past?

We, as parents, educators, citizens of the US, need to come to terms and come together. It is all too obvious that organizations like CAIR wish to destroy the fundamentals of our constitution. It is ironic that James Zogby, the pollster, who was educated based on scholarships from Jewish philanthropists would be on the bandwagon to try to destroy America's partnership with Israel. How soon the world forgets of what Jews have contributed for the betterment of mankind. Many great doctors and researchers are Jewish, Hindu and Christian.

We know all too well that those who hate Jews would welcome a "final solution." They are amazed that Israel was able to survive over 55 years and become a strong country unlike her neighbors.

Should the US be continuing to aiding those countries that are funding terrorism? The answer should be very clear. No. Those countries should include Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Pakistan, Iran, Lebanon, Sudan, and of course Syria. Some steps have been taken already to stop all American aid. Leave it up to the EU and the UN as they seem to be partners (once again) with the terrorists.

The partners of 60 years ago are still the partners of today.
