School officials called out over anti-Israel materials in Newton, Mass.
A new advertising campaign in Boston-area newspapers calls out officials in the public school system of Newton, Mass., over the alleged presence of anti-Israel materials in those schools.
The Boston-based nonprofit Americans for Peace and Tolerance (APT) took out the ads in the Boston Globe, Boston Herald, Newton Tab, Boston Metro, and Jewish Advocate. The ads cover research by concerned parents and students that has revealed the presence of anti-Israel texts in Newton schools including "The Arab World Studies Notebook," which claims that Israeli soldiers murdered hundreds of Palestinian nurses in Israeli prisons; "A Muslim Primer," which claims that astronaut Neil Armstrong converted to Islam, but that the anti-Muslim U.S. government warned him "to keep his new religion to himself or he could be fired" from his government job; "Flashpoints: Guide to World History," which asserts that Tel Aviv, not Jerusalem, is the capital of Israel, and that Jerusalem is the capital of "Palestine"; and other materials.
