Remove antisemitic textbook from US schools

I know this organization, PJTN and Laurie Cardoza-Moore. They are true friends of Israel and the Jewish people. Please sign the petition and support their work. Ted Belman.


Have you signed the petition to remove anti-Semitic textbooks from Williamson County Schools?

Greetings!I want to make sure you had the opportunity to sign this important petition to remove the anti-Semitic textbook from Williamson County Schools.  I will be submitting these petitions to the Williamson County School Board Members at their board meeting in June.As you know, we recently launched an initiative in Williamson County, Tennessee for the removal of a high school textbook for its anti-Semitic rhetoric.  You may have seen my appearance a couple of weeks ago on Fox & friends discussing this important issue.

The textbook in question is taught on a college level, elective course titled, The Cultural Landscape Curriculum – An Introduction to Human Geography, published by Prentice Hall – 10th edition and is available to students in public schools in Williamson County. On page 260 of the textbook it says: “Distinguishing terrorism from other acts of political violence can be difficult. For example, if a Palestinian suicide bomber kills several dozen Israeli teenagers in a Jerusalem restaurant, is that an act of terrorism or wartime retaliation against Israeli government policies and army actions? Competing arguments are made: Israel’s sympathizers denounce the act as a terrorist threat to the country’s existence, whereas advocates of the Palestinian cause argue that long-standing injustices and Israeli army attacks on ordinary Palestinian civilians provoked the act.”

We need you to take action now!

A committee of educators and administrators are reviewing this textbook over the coming weeks to consider removing it.  I have tried to meet with the school board members to discuss my concerns with the textbook privately, but they have been instructed not to speak with me. We need to let them know that this type of blatant anti-Semitic rhetoric is not acceptable in any context!

This “attack” by a “…Palestinian suicide bomber….” on innocent Jewish teenagers in Jerusalem is the one the author of the textbook is referring to when he suggests that it is “…difficult to distinguish terrorism from political violence.”  Is it really?
