Canadian Jews shocked by anti-Israel bias in homework
Parents complain of anti-Israel bias in homework Martin van den Hemel
A complaint of an anti-Israel bias to a lesson given to a William Bridge Elementary Grade 6 classroom about the violence in the Middle East has created plenty of buzz in Richmond.
The parents of a Jewish student contacted the Jewish Tribune which on Wednesday published an article about the handout under the headline "Hamas-friendly homework assignment: Parents shocked by anti-Israel bias in curriculum."
According to the article, the parents who recently emigrated from Russia were concerned that in the handout, "Hamas isn't a terrorist group as designated by the Canadian government, but merely a 'militant Islamic group.'"
University of B.C. professor Derek Gregory, noted that the violence committed by Hamas is fully acknowledged, "but so too is the predicament of the Palestinian people, and to ignore Hamas's social welfare programmes and focus only on its paramilitary activities would reduce education of the level of caricature."
Romy Ritter, regional director of the Canadian Jewish Congress, said she's taken a look at the homework and found it problematic.
"I did feel that there is some anti-Israel bias contained in the material and I believe it warrants further investigation."
It's mandated by the Zionist controlled MSM to always portray Hamas as some blood thirsty group that enjoys killing and dying more than living, always show them as being the aggressors.
Never, ever mention the cold hard facts that Israel is the CHIEF aggressor in the ME. Like the craftily concocted Zionst BS that Israel was forced to attack neighboring Arab states in the 1967 Six Day War:
First, let us dispense with the mythology about how that war started or its goals. For example, Israeli General Matityahu Peled admitted: "The thesis that the danger of genocide was hanging over us in June 1967 and that Israel was fighting for its physical existence is only bluff, which was born and developed after the war ...To pretend that the Egyptian forces massed on our frontiers were in a position to threaten the existence of Israel constitutes an insult not only to the intelligence of anyone capable of analyzing this sort of situation, but above all an insult to the Zahal Israeli army" (Ha'aretz, 19 March 1972).
This massive Zionist brainwashing scheme has been underway for decades, always portraying Israel as some poor, defenseless, peace loving nation, cornered and surrounded by throat slitting Muslims intent on wiping Israel off the map.
When anyone who still has at least half a brain left knows the opposite to be true.
