Newton, MA Parents Launch Lawsuit Against School District For Teaching Their Kids Blatant Antisemitic Propaganda

From the Free Beacon:
Some of the evidence described in the complaint goes to support their complaint that students were being taught Jews and Christians deliberately forged their holy texts to contradict the Muslim Qur'an. Another textbook instructed that Zionism has "little connection" to Jewish history in "Palestine." 
Students were also taught Jews took advantage of the Holocaust to gain sympathy for Zionism at the expense of "Arab plight," and Israelis were compared to Nazis amid claims they've treated Palestinians like Nazis historically treated Jews. 
"In looking for the sources of the anti-Semitic and anti-Israel bigotry in the Newton curriculum, we discovered a few bad apple teachers who view their teaching positions as giving them license to promote their personal political agendas," APT Executive Director Ilya Feoktistov said. 
"We are also looking closely at a common pattern with these politicized teachers -- most, if not all, have taken professional development courses developed with foreign funding by the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia." 
"Newton history teachers and school administrators must think either that anti-discrimination laws do not apply to them, or that these laws do not protect their Jewish and Israeli students," APT President Charles Jacobs said.
