The frequency of articles addressing leftist anti-Semitism is on the rise. This article discusses an offense with a public library in Highland Park, New Jersey, which has a large Orthodox Jewish population.
Members of Highland Park’s Jewish community are campaigning to keep the book out of the library, according to a local ABC station. “It’s a symbol, it says that it’s OK to have books that teach little children to hate,” said Rabbi Bernhard Rosenberg, rabbi emeritus of Congregation Beth-El in Edison, an adjacent town. “It’s being used to teach little children about how great the Palestinians are and we should murder the Jews, that’s the bottom line.”
Bashi claims that the book is just meant to teach about Palestinian-Arab culture, but the author has an unusual way of proving that her book does not dabble in casual anti-Semitism.
