The elite beacon School in New York City is coming under fire from parents, especially Jewish parents when their children had to observe a moment of silence for dead Hamas terrorists. Last week, Hamas admitted that 50 of the 62 people killed on the border were Hamas terrorists. What in the heck made school officials think it was appropriate to mourn murderers? Can there be any more denying where the left stands on radical Islam? And the same leftists who don’t think it’s appropriate to fly the American flag because some might find it offensive have no problem asking Jewish children to mourn the very people who have sworn to kill every Jew.
The Zionist Organization of America, a pro-Israel group, said it plans to send a letter to the Beacon School demanding an apology, the report stated.
“It is disgraceful to mourn the death of Hamas terrorists,” said Morton Klein, the organization’s president.
Parents said they viewed the moment of silence as being anti-Jewish.
“I am extremely upset because I did not send my child to a New York City public school to pray for Hamas operatives,” a father, who is Jewish, told the Post.
Students said an announcement about the moment of silence was broadcast over the school’s intercom system on Tuesday.
Sophie Steinberg, a junior from Brooklyn, told the Post:
“As a Jewish student, I could see a lot of my Jewish friends get very weird when the moment of silence started. They don’t know how to feel. They don’t know how to fit into all of this.”
The left isn’t even trying to hide their hatred of Jews anymore and college professors indoctrinate students to see Israel as evil and Hamas as the victims. They would deny Israel the same right of self defense they would demand for any other country on the face of planet Earth.
