A textbook for children in the final stage of their school education before university makes various claims that the publishers have refused to correct. ThiemeMeulenhoff’s textbook entitled “Theme Workbook – The Middle East” contains assertions that:
“The British government was in urgent need of money during World War I…Jewish bankers were prepared to offer favourable loan terms if the government made a gesture toward the Jewish People.”
The publisher has refused to change this passage and various others.
