Textbook Case of Bias at LA Times

Rubin: In Arab and Palestinian media, books, and politics, there is not the slightest acknowledgement to anything Israelis and Jews say, feel, or have experienced

Barry Rubin of GLORIA blasts the Los Angeles Times' July 27 editorial ("Two versions of history") for "demand[ing] that Israel be completely balanced -- and criticiz[ing] anything that appears not to be -- while not demanding anything of the other side."

While the Times demands that Hebrew editions of an elementary school book also include a line noting that Arabs consider the founding of Israel a catastrophe, the editors are silent about the fact that "Palestinians and Arabs in general are taught by every source--sermons, government statements, textbooks, etc.--that Israel is evil and illegitimate."
