ADL Welcomes Decision by Andover, MA High School To Cancel Anti-Israel Presentation
Boston, MA October 27, 2006 - In response to the controversy surrounding the decision of Andover High School in Andover, MA to cancel classroom presentations by the anti-Israel group "Wheels of Justice," the Anti-Defamation League's New England Regional Director Andrew Tarsy issued the following statement:
We provided Andover High School officials with a background briefing about Wheels of Justice so that it could make an informed decision.
We applaud the decision that was reached. We celebrate a school's interest in education about the Middle East conflict, and urge schools to provide educationally appropriate, factual and balanced content.
Wheels of Justice has a very clear track record of being neither factual or balanced.
The Anti-Defamation League, founded in 1913, is the world's leading organization fighting anti-Semitism through programs and services that counteract hatred, prejudice and bigotry.
