JON S- "Ralph Schoenman immediately goes on to use another phony quote."
Three points: 1) Due to circumstances, Schoenman is quoting the Al Hamishmar story about the Koenig report, not the report directly, 2) I have no way of knowing how complete and accurate the translation of the Koenig Report is that you linked to. That the link is to a Palestinian (?) website hardly tells me about the article in Al Hamishmar, 3) the fact that Schoenman is quoting a conversation in the second quote hardly makes the quote "phony."
JON S- "As to my teaching, I do try to make sure that my students are exposed to the Palestinian viewpoint."
Do you teach that the Palestinian natives were ethnically cleansed to permit a Jewish majority? That the original claims about a voluntary exodus to await an invasion of Arab armies was/is false? Or do you teach the approved curriculum? Cut the B.S., the "new historians" fell into disfavor and their viewpoints disappeared.
"When he formed his new government Ariel Sharon was prepared to let the Labor Party have foreign affairs and defense, but not education. He gave this ministry to Limor Livnat, one of the leaders of Likud's ideological right wing.
In the space of a few months Livnat carried out a thorough housecleaning in the school system. Under the motto, "More Zionism, more Bible," she reorganized the curriculum and scrubbed all "defeatist" odors out of the manuals for history and civics instruction. In particular she banned the history textbooks that the Rabin government had introduced a decade earlier, in which the "new historians" influence was detectible, and eliminated the courses on peace and democracy."
