In response to the crazy rumors and misinterpretations of the UK Ministry of Education study regarding the teaching of the Holocaust Educational Trust of the UK has posted a statement on its website.
I posted on this on Sunday and have continued to be inundated with emails alerting me to this "terrible" development. People seemed energized by the thought that this might be true.
I am glad that at last this wave of hysteria has been quelled. [Though I am struck by the fact that the Wiesenthal Center just released a statment expressing the fact that it was "horrified" that UK teachers were failing to teach about the Holocaust for reasons of "political correctness." Another misstatement of the facts.]
In short there is enough bad stuff about Jews -- i.e. antisemitism -- out in the world that we do not have to seek it out where it does not exist or overstate what is out there.
