JNS.orgPink Floyd band member and anti-Israel activist Roger Waters launched a new curriculum on the Arab-Israel-conflict with a pro-Palestinian Irish group.

“I have studied the education pack… and it is extremely well laid out, extremely informative and eloquent in a way that kids will understand,” Waters said, Ma’an News Agency reported.

Waters’s “Palestine & Israel—How will there be a Just Peace?” curriculum was co-produced by Sadaka—the Ireland-Palestine Alliance. It claims “to support young people in critically exploring injustice and peace building within a framework of human rights and international law,” according to Sadaka’s website. The group hopes that the curriculum will be used in Irish secondary schools.

According to the popular pro-Israel blog, Elder of Ziyon, which analyzed the Irish group’s curriculum, the curriculum “pretends to be evenhanded” but actually suffers from “either huge bias or gigantic omissions.”

Irish NGOs are some of the most powerful anti-Israel groups in Europe and have been on the forefront of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.

    Christian Bible/Old Testament/Isaiah 66:8 Who has ever heard of such a thing? And who ever sees such things? Can a country be born in a single day, or can a nation be brought forth in a single moment? Yet no sooner was Zion in labor than she delivered her children.Israel signed their Declaration of Independence on May 14, 1948. The Declaration states that the British Mandate governing Palestine would remain in effect until midnight (May 15), and at that time the interim government of Israel would begin to rule. So the first “official” day of statehood for Israel was Saturday May 15, 1948. Mr. Camping stated this was the day of Pentecost. Pentecost day began on the evening of May 15th. Mr. Camping alluded to this first “official” day but did not say the date.

    Israel should allow Palestinian state then problem resolved

    • A Real American

      Michael, there is a “palestinian” state. It is called JORDAN.

      FACT: 80% of the population of Jordan is “palestinian”

      FACT: Jordan sits on 78% of the land that was once called Palestine.

      What you are calling for is a SECOND palestinian state (or third if you count Gaza). And the creation of this state will not solve a single thing until the Palestinians accept Israel as a Jewish state and stop trying to undermine it’s existence through the UN and other international groups.
