Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., on Thursday called for a rejection of new Palestinian textbooks that portray a world without Israel, refer to Jews as "Zionist gangs" and rewrite the Holocaust to ignore atrocities committed against Jews.
"We must stop the propaganda to which Palestinian children are exposed," Clinton said in a news conference in Washington, D.C. "These children deserve an education that instills respect for life and peace instead of glorifying death and violence."
Clinton, a candidate for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination, called the conference to release a report by Palestinian Media Watch, a Jerusalem-based group that monitors Palestinian media for anti-Israel bias. She said the books "do not give Palestinian children an education, they give them an indoctrination." To read the complete article go to:
Hillary has been a big supporter of a two state system. Unfortunately that whole concept isn't going to go away no matter how much we might like it to. I have not been a big supporter of Hillery in the past but my opinion of her just went up a few notches. However, textbooks have always been an issue and, while Israel keeps its part of the bargain, Palestinian schools just continue to pump out more and more hate. Having hope that things will change is great but the reality of the situation says different. When will our leaders wake up and say enough is enough - and mean it?
