A WAKE UP CALL
Taking Teaching Hate out of the
Our School System is NOT the Platform for
Israel Jewish Life published an article by Betsy Schwarcz titled "An
Inappropriate Workshop." The article was a report from
Saturday's eight hour session of a Salary Point Workshop given for
teachers by UTLA (Union Teachers Los Angeles, utla.net). This was part of a
16-hour professional development workshop titled TEACHING ABOUT
THE ARAB WORLD: MEETING THE STANDARDS ACROSS
DISCIPLINES, K-12, presented by the American Friends Service
Committee February 2-5, 2007.
Betsy concludes her article:
Most importantly the workshop did not
accomplish what it was supposed to. First of all, the
name workshop in itself means an interactive medium.
All the professional development workshops I have
participated in, engage the students in some practical manner.
Often, the presenter speaks about their topic and while
talking discusses how their ideas can be used in the classroom.
Then the students
are usually asked to get a partner and do an exercise relating to what they have
just learned . The speaker then asks some
students to share their thoughts about the exercise.
The standards are always addressed. This "workshop"
failed to do any of that. A more suitable
title for the program would have been "Teaching
Adults About the Arab World In A Very Pro-Palestinian,Anti-IsraeliWay—No
Practical Use For Grades K-12."
former Superintendent of the Beverly Hills Unified School
District commented on Betsy Schwarz's article (IJL, 2/7/2007):
"This is outrageous … an appallling and inappropriate use of
public money for a presentation, [which] as Betsy notes, has no
relevance for the California standards. Who made the decision to
give his guy a pulpit??
Nancy Krasne, a current candidate to the Beverly
Hills City Council, remarked:
frightening. If this was part of a sponsored
district program for credit towards a pay raise the credit can be
knocked off by the raciest tone of this class.
This WILL BE STOPPED!
Regretfully, the following public officials did not
see fit to address in this form the issues raised in Betsy's
article, but may be taking action in other venues:
1) Superintendent David Brewer, LAUSD
Canter, President, LAUSD
Galatzan, the Mayor's endorsed candidate in the Valley
4) Councilmembers Wendy Greuel and Jack Weiss
I was present during both the Saturday and the Monday sessions of the
workshop as an official observer for the Anti-Defamation League.
DISCLAIMER: The opinions expressed in this article are
my own and do not represent the opinions of the Anti-Defamation
The Workshop was nothing but a platform for
anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian propaganda. The
"teaching tools and resources" presented were clearly
ANTI, self-serving, truth-distorting, factually-incorrect
and quite insensitive to history and to humanity.
The Holocaust, for
instance, is not a proprietary Jewish phenomenon. Many more
Christians died during WWII than Jews.
Making a joke about not being allowed to leave early
since "the doors are locked, there are guard dogs
outside, and we built a 25 feet wall," following a
previous description of the Palestinian cities being surrounded with 25 feet
walls and watchtowers every 200 meters, its population held in
"an open air prison," its livelihood being taken away from it,
its water being poisoned, etc., would leave a very vivid
impression in anyone's mind. Such a joke would be
universally considered insensitive and inappropriate, except at this
Workshop. Anyone wandering the connection between the described "plight" of the Palestinians and
the Holocaust, should refer to the usage of a new word:
"ghettoization" (word taken from a
Ghetto, Wall, Oppression--all were used against
Israel in most sophisticated ways: Teaching teachers in Los
Angeles about Palestinian farmers' plight, Palestinian embroidery as an
expression of national identity, and the escape of Christians from
Bethlehem because of Israel, emphasizing that
Christian Palestinians and Muslim Palestinians live in harmony in the birthplace
of Christ (nothing could
be further from the truth).
read, for instance, about (Arab) Women and Education. The
material given reads, in part:
Over the past
five decades, women have been active in the Palestinian
resistance movement . Several hundred have been
imprisoned, tortured, and killed by Israeli occupation forces
since the uprising, "Intifada," in the Israeli occupied territories began in
One of the magazines distributed shows
on its back cover an Israeli soldier aiming his rifle at a woman who is
bowing and a child who looks straight into the soldier's eyes
. The caption: An Israeli soldier on patrol
in the West bank city of Hebron aims weapon toward a crowd of
Palestinian shoppers on Jerusalem Day, Oct.20, 2006. Cover to
cover, the magazine talks about Israel, Palestine, Oppressed
Palestinians and Misery caused by or attributed to Israel in one form or
Hebron, if you wondered, is part of the Occupied
Territories. A presenter who claims to have been born
and raised here in the USA, stated she is an Arab, a Muslim, a Palestinian, a
Woman -- from the Occupied Hebron . As an American who was born and raised here, I
would first describe myself AN AMERICAN. The
presenter, it seems, was not alone: Another presenter
emigrated to the United States seven years ago from Nazareth, Israel,
also told us she is from the Occupied Territories.
All of Israel, it seems, is
occupied. There is a sense of identity, magnetism to
a fictitious land called "Palestine," from which all hatred
after the eight hours I attended, during which whatever happens in the
Arab World is related to the evil occupation of Palestine by Israel
(and if not than at the very least to America, who is connected by
associated to Israel), after receiving material written by the likes of
Noam Chomsky, after hearing, time and time again of the plight
of Palestinian people (whether in Israel, Lebanon, or elsewhere),
is there any doubt in anyone's mind that teachers attending the
Workshop need to spring to action? They must educate (since
what one hears in the news is misleading), they must show the right ways
to the kids in their classroom, and they should support the
Palestinian efforts to rid themselves of the ghettoization by
the Israeli occupation.
Imagine a staff professional development workshop
about Israel, or even a workshop about the Arab World which is
given by an Israeli or a Jewish presenter, or yet another
workshop about the plight of immigrants in California or about Gays and
Lesbians (all aimed at teachers of students in K-12).
Protestors will be in the building and outside. The media
will be all over the place. In this case, it is Israel-bashing, a most
honorable of pastime methods, definitely not "sexy enough" to be "newsworthy."
Without immediate, corrective action, we
fail. Being accommodating, fair and respectful apparently does not
work in the setting of this Workshop. As much as the presenters
see themselves as Palestinians, a workshop about the Arab
World disguising PROPAGANDA should NOT be allowed. Not in
2007. Not in 2008. Not at any time where the presentations are
skewed and amount to a 16 hour brainwashing about OCCUPATION by ISRAEL
and the PLIGHT OF THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE WORLD WIDE (as related to the
occupation). I only wonder if there is any change between the previous
presentations in 2005 and 2006 and the current one now that Israel is out of the
Probably none. Rachelle Marshall, a member of
the Jewish International Peace Union, writes in a Special Report available in
one of the magazines given out: Bush's Lies Can't Hide Middle East
The World Trade Center attacks gave Bush the chance to
sell this agenda to Americans as essential to the "war on terrorism."
[NOTE: in Saturday's presentation we learned that due to all the billions
spent on the War on Terrorism and the War in Iraq, are schools and education are
suffering. Imagine what could be done with all these billions of dollars
right here at the classroom!] ... It was a claim no more real than the imminent
"mushroom cloud" Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice once warned about. ...
Israel's confiscation of more than $50 million a month in Palestinian
revenue collections, and the cutoff of international aid funds, have forced
schools to close and caused serious shortages of fuel, hospital
equipment, and medical supplies. [NOTE: same figure mentioned
on Saturday by the speaker: $600M last year alone = $50M / month.] ...
Israel's oppression of the
Palestinians, with full support from America, was a major cause of the anger
among Arabs and Muslims. ... more than 120,000 people of
Palestinian descent have been affected by laws that serve no other purpose than
to reduce the Palestinian population and impoverish those who remain.
It goes on and on, within this article, and then article
after article. The availability of these magazines and handouts is no
coincidence. The same statements were repeated and incorporated in the
Palestinian "crowd" is extremely sophisticated. A
Thousand and One Arabian Nights. They create a
reality of their own, which has no connection with the actual reality,
and seem to believe that telling a lie enough times makes it into truth.
The Christian Palestinians from Bethlehem, for
instance, would be those to attest that the reason their population dwindled to
1.9% of the city inhabitants has nothing to do with Israel but with the Muslim
Palestinians. They will attest to the fact they do not "live
in harmony," unless one defines no more Christians living in the birthplace of
Christ as a prerequisite for "harmony."
Meeting the Standards Across Disciplines,
K-12: What standards? Which
disciplines? If the purpose is to provide a seminar on
Palestinian statehood, do that. Educators'training regarding
TEACHING ABOUT THE ARAB WORLD should have two elements:
b.) Arab World.
The parts I attended should have been called Israel's Role in
Causing the Plight of the Palestinian People. One
should do the honorable thing and call things by their true name.
