The anti-Israel indoctrination of high school students in Newton, Massachusetts continues. A teacher inculcates students with a deeply flawed history of the Arab-Israeli conflict in a senior elective class, while the superintendent assures parents that all is well.
After the Holocaust, many bought into the idea that the best way to prevent the reoccurrence of similar horrors was through education. If the world knows what happened, the thinking went, it’ll never allow such atrocities to repeat. But after the 10/7 Massacre in Israel, we’re seeing a much darker reality about education’s role in shaping society’s attitudes toward atrocities.
These individuals took a stand at a crucial moment in time against those institutions that are equivocating, or worse, in the face of hatred and terrorism. They serve as examples, and hopefully inspiration, for others to speak up and do what is right.

The European Journal of International Law proclaims a “commitment to publishing…a diverse range of contributors.” Will it allow a handful of loud, partisan activists to intimidate it into compromising on its own ideals?

Haaretz expands its category of inherently suspect jurists. Rabbis and the vast and diverse pool of Bar-Ilan University graduates join the paper's growing list of intrinsically compromised judges alongside those living in the disputed West Bank.
At Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC), “social justice and equity” mean denying Jewish indigeneity and self-determination and whitewashing violence against Jews. At least that’s the takeaway from a “visual timeline” BMCC’s “Social Justice and Equity Centers” are displaying on campus.

Nerdeen Kiswani once threatened to set another person's IDF sweatshirt on fire while he was wearing it. Now the Journal quotes her an an authority on antisemitism.
For all their high-minded rhetoric about free speech and expression, some “human rights” activists and lawyers seem zealously opposed to allowing debate. As a recent conference panel demonstrated, this is particularly true among those who seek to besmirch the Jewish state with substantively empty accusations of “apartheid” and “racism.” However, after efforts by CAMERA and others to counteract this behavior, purveyors of the libel – and their sponsors – now know they will not be left unchallenged.
