مؤسسة هيوستن التعليمية المستقلة

Houston Independent School District

تعتمد توصيات اكبر مؤسسة تدافع عن اليهود وهي "رابطة ضد  التشهير"

The ADL:  Anti-Defamation League

 

 في برنامج البلطجة  الطلابية واعتماد عدم السماح   للطلاب لانتقاد دولة إسرائيل اليهودية، ويعتبر هذا الإجراء  "ضد  السامية

 نحن المسيحيين، المسلمين واليهود وكل انسان حر يرفض  هذا التقييد ونعتبر هذا بمثابة موقف  متحيز تماما وغير عادل للحرية التي منحنا لنا الدستور الامريكي.

يجب ان يسمح انتقاد  دولة إسرائيل في المدارس ويكون لا يختلف عن انتقاد أي نظام سياسي آخر.

ارجو من الجميع ان يوقع  على العريضة.

Dear Friends and Concerned citizens; 

Please sign the following petition, this is very important for all of us, Houston Independent school district are adopting the Anti Defamation League anti Bullying program which does not allow the students to criticize the Jewish State of Israel and considers this an anti Semite action. We the people Christians, Moslem and Jews refuse this restriction and we consider this as a totally bias position and unfair. Criticizing the State of Israel in schools should be allowed and be no different than criticizing any other political regime .Please go ahead and sign the petition.
