    Massachusetts Teachers board under fire for cease-fire ‘genocidal war’ resolution: ‘Antisemitic dog-whistling’

    Any cease-fire resolution should include an explicit condemnation of the Hamas terrorist attack, a call for a return of the Israeli hostages, and for the removal of Hamas as a controlling actor in Gaza, according to the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Boston.

    “The MTA’s cease-fire resolution does not address any of these realities,” JCRC added. “We expect better from our educational partners.”

    The Newton Teachers Association is disassociating itself from the MTA board’s statement and “in particular from its antisemitic dog-whistling,”
