An Open Letter to Macmillan Publishers:
Regarding the slanders and gross inaccuracies concerning Israel’s history in your textbook “World Regional Geography” that shows your editors and writers are clearly uninformed and obviously biased. We see:
“Israel’s excellent technical and educational infrastructure, its diverse and prospering economy, and the large aid contributions (public and private) it receives from the United States and elsewhere, have made it one of the region’s wealthiest, most technologically advanced and militarily powerful countries.
The Palestinian people, by contrast, are severely impoverished and undereducated after years of conflict, inadequate government and meager living […] often in refugee camps. Through a series of events over the past 60 years, Palestinians have lost most of the lands on which they used to live.”
Why are the Palestinian Arabs "impoverished and undereducated”?
It is because their Arab leadership has used them as pawns to further their aims of destroying Israel with their use of Jew hatred rhetoric in their mosques, schools and media? Is it because their entire educational system has always been directed toward the destruction of Israel rather than positive, creative pursuits?
Why do the Palestinian Arabs have “inadequate government and meager living” despite the billions of dollars given to them by the EU and U.S.? It is because their Arab leadership has used the funds to enrich themselves and purposely contain their people in squalor to create a class that hates their “oppressors” – Israeli’s and Jews.
Why haven’t the Arabs taken advantage of “Israel’s excellent technical and educational infrastructure, its diverse and prospering economy” to enhance their society? It’s because they prefer overwhelming Jew hatred force fed by their leaders and their dream of destroying Israel to improving their people’s lives.
Where are your comments on the Arab child abuse that creates child murderers to murder Jewish families, that indoctrinates them every minute of every day to hate Jews, that maintains “refugee camps” (better Arab retention/indoctrination camps) supported by our tax dollars thru UNRWA.
Do you mention Arab children’s summer camps that indoctrinate, teach and train how to murder Jews?
While I’m at it – where is your mention of the 800,000 Jewish refugees driven out of Arab lands after 1948 and absorbed by Israel?
Why haven’t the Arab “refugees” been accepted by the Arab countries?
It’s because the Arab leadership’s purpose of using them as pawns to further their aims of destroying Israel.
Finally - your distortions without facts include “Palestinians have lost most of the lands on which they used to live.”.
Exactly what “lands” have they lost? They lived in the Palestine Mandate, refused the U.N. partition plan and went to war.
