Action Alert...."Be The Difference"



 
action alert

"Upon your walls, O Jerusalem, have I posted Watchmen; all the day and all the night, continuously, they will never be silent." Isaiah 62:6  
Dear Jeff,

This past Monday, April 8th, Jews, Christians and people of conscience united around the globe to remember the six million men, women and children who were violently murdered by the Nazi's because of their faith. That day of remembrance is called Yom HaShoah.

The Holocaust did not happen in a vacuum.  This horrific event in history occurred systematically because Christians, Germans and world leaders turned a blind eye to the growing anti-Semitism in communities across Germany while Adolf Hitler, incrementally executed his evil agenda. 

This coming Monday, at 6pm, you have an opportunity to stand against the growing threat of the "new" anti-Semitism in our community by attending a Williamson County School Board meeting to demand that our elected officials remove curriculum that confuses "terrorist attacks" with "political violence."   

The text in question is taken from The Cultural Landscape Curriculum - An Introduction to Human Geography; under the title, "Why Has Terrorism Increased?"  The author states, "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?"  
  
This type of blatant anti-Semitic propaganda and disinformation, has no place in our community and it should not be taught to our future leaders.  PJTN is uniting with other organizations in middle Tennessee to launch a community-wide effort to remove any curriculum from our County/City schools that support Arab/Palestinian terrorist attacks against our Jewish brethren and we need you to be there!  So please, make every effort to attend!

During a meeting last December with Franklin High School faculty, our requests to provide an alternative textbook that would provide factually accurate and balanced information was denied. 

So, please plan to arrive early. Not only do we need every tax-paying citizen and their students in the County to attend, but if you live in the surrounding counties, you should attend too. This curriculum is being peddled to our children across the State and in private schools as well.  A statewide effort must be launched to remove this type of biased curriculum from our elementary, junior and senior high schools, as well as our schools of higher learning. 

As I stated earlier, the Holocaust did not happen in a vacuum, and  
in the words of Holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel, "Indifference to evil is evil."

The Williamson County School Board meeting convenes at 6pm tomorrow, Monday, April 15th at 1320 Main Street, Suite 202, Franklin, TN.

Remember to forward this information to your family and friends.  The press will be covering this story and we need to pack the house to show that we are committed to this effort.

For more information, please contact our office at: 615-778-0202, or email me at: lauriecm@pjtn.org. Please forward this email to everyone you know and ask them to take the time to attend, the future of our community, this great state and the future of the United States demands it.

God bless you!
