Netherlands: Education ministry says not responsible for ‘anti-Israel’ textbook

Once again, we have a gap between what the government says ('we want Jews to feel at home') and what it does ('we aren't responsible for banning incitement against Jews in schoolbooks').

Via JTA:
The Dutch education ministry distanced itself from a textbook that contained statements deemed anti-Israeli. 
The ministry’s statement on the book followed complaints by Jewish students and parents over the description in the book of Israel’s establishment as the result of widespread murder of Palestinian villagers. It also questioned Israeli former Prime Minister Menachem Begin’s credentials as a peacemaker, noting he was “known as a terrorist and extremist.”
