    Israeli education in high school (like in every country) is required to teach the tribe's view of its history, not the defeated enemy's view of the tribe's history. Let the students read about the events of 1948 later on when they have left school. However, as most arab writers today would affirm the 'falsehood' of the Holocaust and brand it a hoax I can seriously ask for the name of an arab author/historian on this matter who is worth the time to read. If I am wrong and there are arab authors/historians who can be taken seriously on historical matters where Jews are involved, my apologies. I would like their names, please. In the meantime, Israeli school children can confidently read Jewish authors concerning matters that occurred in the 1940s. Ziv is wrong and it is the Palestinians who are dishonest in their accounts of the events of 1948.
