“We respect Judaism, just as we respect Christianity. Our only problem is with Israel,” Sheikh Hasan Nasrallah.
Lebanese who have been victim of two Holocausts at the hands of Jewish army, are being advised to add Jewish Holocaust in their school text books.
Hannah Rosenthal, Hillary Clinton’s Jewish envoy for combating anti-Semitism in the world – visited Lebanon, Jordan and Saudi Arabia last month. The purpose of her visit was to persuade officials in those Muslim-majority countries to remove from their textbooks intolerance aimed at non-Muslims and to introduce positive references to Judaism.
In Jordan and Saudi Arabia she talked to officials and was told that the current school textbooks don’t depict Judaism as an evil religion – but is considered one of the three Abrahamic religions (Yahud, Nasara and Islam). She reported that she was frustrated when they mixed Jews with Israeli policies. However, Saudi officials promised to review the textbooks and remove any ‘anti-Semitism’ material, if found. According to Hannah, Jordanian official resisted any such effort on their part.
Sadly, officials in both countries refused to add Jewish Holocaust studies as part of their school curricula. The Holocaust studies is part of school curricula in the US, UK, Denmark, Germany and other European countries where it is taught depends on each country’s particular relation with the local Jewish communities and state of Israel.
United Nations’ run educational schools in several war-torn countries – also teach Zionists’ hoaxy Holocaust narrative of ‘Six Million Died’. In 2009, schools run by the United Nations in the Gaza Strip were considering including the Holocaust as part of the curriculum — but the idea was put on hold when some Palestinians protested the idea.
Hannah met with Education Ministry and other government officials in Jordan and Saudi Arabia. In Lebanon, she met only with civil society groups promoting interfaith dialogue, in part because she was limited to a few hours in the country for security reasons. Meeting with Lebanese government officials are very fearful of the Jewish Lobby at home because Lebanon’s new Cabinet includes three members of Hezbollah in 30-member cabinet. The US along with Israel and Canada has designated Hizbullah as a terrorist organization.
Lebanon, an Arab democracy, with a Muslim Prime Minister and a Christian President, allowed the building of a synagogue, squarely in the center of their Ground Zero in the heart and pride of downtown Beirut which used to be a dumping ground for Israeli military ordinances.
I bet if Hannah had dared to meet one of Lebanese cabinet minister – he would have told her that the entire new generations of Israeli Jews are being raised on hatred toward Arabs, Muslims and Christians.
