Whitewashing hate

Whitewashing hate

The Community Relations Committee of Greater MetroWest and New Jersey American Jewish Committee are to be commended for the Step Up for Israel Summit, and for bringing so many excellent speakers to our attention, particularly Itamar Marcus. (“At Whippany summit, enlisting a ‘corps’ of advocates for Israel,”  Feb. 7).

The information Marcus shared was eye-opening and is critical for effective advocacy, especially in light of the recent State Department report which is riddled with inaccuracies and is clearly an attempt to  whitewash the pervasive hate indoctrination prevalent in Palestinian school textbooks, summer camps, the media, and the culture. The Jerusalem Post just published Marcus’s response, “The Whitewashing of Hate.” I encourage everyone to buy his book, Deception: Betraying the Peace Process, as it chronicles the depth and breadth of this insidious problem.
