B’nai Brith Canada calls for removal of anti-Israel propaganda from recommended reading list for school children

TORONTO, March 25, 2010 – B’nai Brith Canada has called for the removal of The Shepherd’s Granddaughter, a vehemently anti-Israel book targeting students in grades seven and eight, from the recommended reading list of Ontario public school libraries. The one-sided work of fiction, which demonizes the Jewish State and was brought to B’nai Brith Canada’s attention by a concerned parent, is currently being recommended by teachers and librarians in the Toronto District School Board (TDSB).

  1. Sure even you should be able to tell the difference between banning a book and removing a book from a recommended reading list for students.

    But never lets facts stand in the way of a good meme.

  2. BB: Good thing I never said that B’nai Brith wanted to “ban” the book. But don’t let facts stop you from dutifully tearing down the strawman that you erected in order to parse sematics in a weak-ass gotcha attempt, cuddles.

    Hey, whatever makes you temporarily giddy in the trouser region.

  3. But removing a book from a recommended list isn’t a violation of “free speech”. Preventing someone from speaking by threatening to make a disturbance is.

    Also, you have the links switched, which is mildly confusing.

  5. I am really starting to believe that jews wherever they are in the world are trying everythong to get noticed and doing their best to be hated – i.e. building appats on palestinian ground in jerusalem, the ywca incident in montreal where windows were curtained, asking special things like no snow removal on saturdays because they can’t take their cars on saturday etc. etc. the list is never ending….god what a bunch of troublemakers ….

    Indigenous people’s land, I mean the land you live on right now? It’d be a good idea to give it back so they could leave the rez (i.e., refugee camp). Whaddya think big guy?
