A group of Massachusetts-based taxpayers are suing the school committee in the city of Newton, a wealthy, liberal enclave, over what they claim is the leadership's ongoing promotion of anti-Semitic school materials and the promotion of Islamic religious beliefs, according to an announcement from the organization handling the lawsuit.
Education Without Indoctrination, a local community group driving the lawsuit, "claims multiple violations of the Massachusetts Open Meeting Law stemming from the school committee's handling of a burgeoning scandal over anti-Semitic lessons and the promotion of Islamic religious beliefs as objective facts in the public school district's history classes," according to a press release from the group.
The lawsuit stems from a controversy of Newton Public Schools use of what the group claims are "unvetted educational materials" produced by the Saudi Arabian oil company ARAMCO and the Qatari government, which has long been cited for its funding of terrorism.
"In teaching world history, Newton Public Schools (NPS) use unvetted educational materials funded by the Saudi oil company ARAMCO and the government of Qatar. As a result, Newton public school students are propagandized with materials that slander Israel and the Jewish people, and that falsify history to promote the Islamic religion in public schools," the press release states.
"Just this past May, Newton North High School invited an anti-Semitic group to screen Palestinian propaganda films to its students," it continues. "For this, NPS Superintendent David Fleishman earned a rebuke from the New England branch of the Anti-Defamation League and Boston's Jewish Community Relations Council."
Concerned parents have been stonewalled in their attempts to gain information from the school leadership about these activities, the group claims.
"All that secrecy has now crossed into illegality," Karen Hurvitz, a member of EWI and counsel for the Newton taxpayers, is quoted as saying in the lawsuit

Islam is unconstitutional and completely incompatible with freedom in the United States of America.
“...Islam is unconstitutional and completely incompatible with freedom in the United States of America....”
Wholeheartedly agree. However, this is good, ole Massachusetts where “diversity is our strength” and a whole host of that other “feel-good” liberal mantra like COEXIST, etc. When the chickens they raised come home to roost, don’t blame the chickens.
Newton MA is known for its large Jewish population—perhaps 35-40%
What’s going on here?
PUBLIC SCHOOL PROMOTES ISLAM: Liberals scream that anyone who is opposed is an "Islamophobe."
Liberalism is the embodiment of being arbitrary and capricious.
Palistinian activists moved to Newton as educators and are fighting their battle there, the Kasimi family for one.
“Whats going on here?”
It’s no coincidence or accident, I’d say. It’s a thumb in the eye to Newton’s large Jewish population.
Yes, Palistinian activists moved to Newton as educators and are fighting their battle there, the Kasimi family for one.
There are those who wish to destroy our Constitutional Republic and return us to a state of feudal slavery, and they have many useful idiots in the education profession.
Islam is the perfect mechanism for accomplishing that goal.
Let me tell you, of all places, Newton is one of the dumbest places to pull a stunt like this in America. The Jewish population there is large, smart, articulate, industrious, and dedicated. A solid community, and whether or not you would agree with them on all political issues, there isn’t one among them who will suffer fools gladly. I predict a political bloodletting.
Let me assure you as a Massachusetts resident that the Jews in Newton are their own worst enemies. So many of them champion leftist causes.
These people are Christianphobes.
Ed Koch summed it up succinctly, Jews live like WASPs yet vote like Puerto Ricans. As if being registered Dems is as sacrosanct as bar mitzvahs and circumcisions.
A better term is staurophobia which is an irrational fear/hatred of the Cross and especially of Him Who it represents; those who are thus afflicted are staurophobes.
(The term comes from the Greek “stauros” [cross] and “phobia” which is [an irrational fear.] I did not coin the term, another poster did but it is a good way to describe this condition.)
Yep, and Congress could stop the muzzie invasion in a moment.
