Why should Israel teach the claims of its enemies to its students? Would the palestinians allow their schools to use books that said we are responsible for the nakba because we were unwilling to accept 2 states back then it was all or nothing? Just because the arabs say its the truth doesn't make it fact or obligate anybody else to agree with them Generally in most conflicts winner & looser have different versions. This is not the same as holocaust denial. Holocaust denial is recorded fact that most the world is agreed on by independent parties and is above national politcs. Deir Yassin was one of many arab villages attacked by jewish forces. Violence between jew & arab had been going on for years but after the UN voted for partition in 1947 violence turned to war Jews went after hostile arab villages. Deir Yassin had up till that point not been hostile & Haganah ordered hands off but Lehi acting independently dispbayed. The war began in Palestine before indepedence was declared.
