					ANTI-DEFAMATION LEAGUE (ADL) ISSUES MISLEADING REPORT
THAT MINIMIZES ANTI-ISRAEL TEACHING AT NEWTON SCHOOLS
 JEWISH LEADERS WRONGLY ASSURE PARENTS THAT ALL IS WELL
          ADL’s Report contains false claims and justifies Palestinian propaganda.


 *    The ADL claims that Newton schools have not been influenced by Saudi-funded propaganda.
                                                                                           FALSE
 * The report claims that anti-Israel BDS activist and Harvard professor Paul Beran did not re-
 cently train Newton teachers in how to present the Arab-Israel conflict.
                                                                         FALSE

 * The ADL justifies the use of Palestinian propaganda maps in the classroom. It claims they
 were part of a set of maps that contained the Israeli view.

          BIASED AND HATEFUL EDUCATION CONTINUES IN NEWTON
                 NEWTON HIGH SCHOOLS CONCEAL
                     HAMAS JEW-HATRED
    The Hamas Charter, which is replete with hatred against Jews as a people and Judaism as a religion, was
             altered in Newton Schools’ teaching materials to make Israel seem unreasonable.

ACTUAL HAMAS CHARTER                                                    NEWTON VERSION (ADDED/DELETED)
“Our enemy uses the method of collective punishment,                    “The Zionist Enemy: Our enemy [Zionism] uses the method
robbing people of their land and property. […] The                      of collective punishment, robbing people of their land and
Nazism of Jews has included women and children.”                        property. […] The Nazism of Jews has included women
                                                                        and children.”

                      Number of times the word “Jews” appears in the Hamas Charter:                  10
               Number of times the word “Jews” appears in Newton Schools’ version:                   0

         Why Would Newton Schools Censor The Genocidal Truth About Hamas?


 NEWTON SCHOOLS TEACH THE DESTRUCTION OF THE
       JEWISH STATE AS A VIABLE OPTION
                   In “Critical Thinking Exercise,” Students Debate If Jews Should Have A State
  Students are asked to role-play as supporters of the so-called “Prominent Voices” on the One State Solution
  or Two State Solution. Selected “Prominent Voices” are either rabidly anti-Israel, or left leaning Israelis and
      American Jews who are severe critics of the Israeli government; some of the most egregious include:
   Ali Abunimah, Propagandist Co-founder of Electronic Intifada,           Virginia Tilley, Professor, calls for the destruction of Israel as a
   calls for the destruction of the Jewish State, claims that Zionism      Jewish state, and for an academic boycott of Israel.
   equals racism.
   John Spritzler, Somerville BDS activist, 9/11 conspiracy                Edward Said, Literary theorist, apologist for Palestinian
   theorist, calls for the destruction of the Jewish state.                terrorism who equated Zionism with racism.

          Why Would Newton Schools Only Question Jewish Self-Determination?
