Here's the paragraph the Jews called "anti-semitic".

From the text:

"Distinguishing terrorism from other acts of political violence can be difficult. For example, if a Palestinian suicide bomber kills several dozen Israeli teenagers in a Jerusalem restaurant, is that an act of terrorism or wartime retaliation against Israeli government policies and army actions? Competing arguments are made: Israel's sympathizers denounce the act as a terrorist threat to the country's existence, whereas advocates of the Palestinian cause argue that long-standing injustices and Israeli army attacks on ordinary Palestinian civilians provoked the act."

Abbie Wolf, a spokeswoman of the Jewish Federation, said they are working with school officials to help train teachers to better teach about conflicts in the Middle East that better reflects the Jewish community.

"Basically, we are very grateful to Pearson for hearing the Jewish community's concerns and responding the way they did and that future editions will not have the passage," Wolf said.

Calling the paragraph "anti-semitic" is Orwellian nuspeak because of the indisputable FACT that 95% of the world's Jews are NOT ethnically semitic and never spoke a semitic language until AFTER the zionist invaded Palestine in the 1940's.

The Jewish Federation wants to train teachers to teach zionazi propaganda--not the truth about the Middle East conflict.

SO try to change words meanings to push your agenda.
Either way anyone who intentionally targets civilians is a terrorist.
I suppose the Boston bombing was not terrorism?
9/11?
London bombing?
Madrid Bombing?
It is anti-Jewish to support and try to justify homocide bombers targeting civilians. Read the Geneva Convention its very clear.
It is only people who hate Jews who deny these realities.

Israel has always targeted and murdered civilians. It is and always has been, by any definition, a terrorist state.

Israel has NEVER complied with the Geneva Conventions or any international laws.

Anti-zionist Jews in the US have been praying for the peaceful destruction of Israel since 1948 and in less than seven years their prayers will be granted.
