LOS ANGELES (VINnews) — Last month in Texas, Gina Peddy, executive director of curriculum and instruction for the Carroll Independent School District, said, “We are in the middle of the political mess … make sure that if you have a book on the Holocaust, that you have one that has opposing or other perspectives.”Join our WhatsApp group

In 2019, Florida Principal William Latson said he had to be “politically neutral” about the Holocaust because “not all of our parents have the same beliefs.
In 2018, Trayon White Sr., a Washington, D.C., councilman, who is now running for Mayor, suggested on Facebook that rich Jews control the weather. He visited the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and left halfway through the 90-minute tour.
Today, Alan and Baila from the VINnews podcast ‘The Definitive Rap’ sat down with Rabbi Abraham Cooper, Associate Dean, Director Global Social Action of the Simon Wiesenthal Center. In the interview, they discussed recent troubling events with educators pushing back against Holocaust education. They discussed parents in San Diego who fought back and were victorious in including antisemitism in their ethnic studies curriculum. They also discussed the importance of strengthening Black-Jewish alliances against the Palestinian hijacking of Black history to advance their false history, and about the importance of ALL people of good will to fight antisemitism and racism. It is NOT the responsibility of AIPAC or other Jewish groups to fight our battles.
Rabbi Cooper exposed the role played by Facebook and big tech in allowing their platforms to be used by antisemitic hate groups, from neo-Nazis to the blood-libeling “Free-Palestine” propaganda mobs.
During the last several years, FBI data has shown a massive spike of antisemitic attacks against Jews and Jewish institutions, and that Jews have been the most targeted group in America.
We are no longer just victimized by Holocaust-denying neo-Nazis, but are now targeted by the far left, radical Islamists, and the “free Palestine” PLO movement who have spent years trying to delegitimize Israel in the media, on college campuses, academia, and now, the halls of Congress.
