Samia Shoman. The anti-Israel drafter of the California Ethnic Studies model curriculum.

The fix was in from the very beginning. The 18 member curriculum committee tasked with writing the new ethnic studies curriculum was peppered with die-hard Israel haters, including Palestinian -American educator Samia Shoman.

Samia Shoman wasted no opportunity to demonize Israel when she taught World History at Hillsdale High School in San Mateo.

Shoman's classroom was decorated with anti-Israel posters and propaganda.

Her definition and examples of "truth", "fact", "perspective" and "narrative" were enough to make George Orwell reach for a drink.

Her  "Teaching Palestine" curriculum and its accompanying material are available online.   Her teaching incorporates the long-discredited 4 part map "Palestinian loss of land".  She spreads the Mohammed al-Durrah blood libel- the one that gave rise to the term  "Pallywood,"  writing:

"In Gaza, a French broadcast crew captured footage of a boy called Mohammed al-Durrah being shot repeatedly by Israeli forces as he clung to his father."

She rationalizes and excuses the suicide bombings that lead to thousands of Israeli civilian casualties during the second Intifada, decorating her classroom with material that glorifies the murderous attacks on pizza places, buses and cafes.  

Samia Shoman's 2011 handout to her history grade class was simply false, deliberately mischaracterizing Israel's security fence as a "485 mile long concrete barrier", used to "humiliate" the Palestinians.  

Samia Shoman: lies and indoctrination

Samia Shoman's biography describes her as a manager of English Learner and Compliance Programs in the San Mateo Union High School District. Before then, she taught high school social science in the Bay Area and poisoned minds for 16 years.

Samia Shoman's curriculum ignores truth, facts and history, excuses violence, and erases the relationship of the Jewish people to their ancient homeland. Her inexcusable bias and her ready dismissal of truth make her an inappropriate choice to work with students in a classroom setting. Likewise, Shoman should have no further role in drafting the California model ethnic studies.

Just saying.....One of her twins is named "Jihad". (The other is Fillistine, because even Samia knows that there is no "P" in Arabic)

This is a cautionary tale- parents must be involved in their children's education. They must look at their handouts, their homework.

“The issue between Arabs and Israelis goes
beyond policy disagreements. It’s deeply
rooted in the belief systems taught in
Muslim countries, which are anti-Semitic.”

Ex-Miss Iraq Sarah Idan Blasts Anti-Semitism
Biased Media Coverage Against Israel

Former Miss Iraq Sarah Idan said:

“When I watched the news last month,
why did they never report that the
Hamas terrorist organization fired
nearly 700 rockets at Israeli civilians
in one weekend or that Hamas used
Palestinians in Gaza as human shields?

Why do they never condemn Hamas
for initiating the attacks?

Instead, they only show those
killed by the response, in
self-defense, and blame Israel.”

Look at the public comments from one of the model curriculum advisory members, Lupe Carrasco Cardona, on her Facebook post. Her post from Wednesday called the people calling out the anti-Semitism as loud ass critics. Her other posts are just as bad.The committee she is on drafted the ethnic standards that was approved by the Instructional Quality Commission with minimal edits.
