Student Union opens ‘hasbara’ room in effort to fill public diplomacy vacuum.
A suburban New York father is suing his school district over the anti-Semitic taunting of his son.
Robert Slade filed the suit last week alleging that officials at Northport High School on Long Island took no action to stop a group of 20 students from traumatizing his son with taunts such as “Jews are disgusting,” “Being Jewish must suck,” “Hitler was a good person” and “My love for you burns like a thousand Jews in an oven.”
The suit says that 20 students mercilessly teased the boy in person and on Facebook during his freshman year in 2011 until he was forced to leave.
“This student was subjected to some awful things,” Slade’s lawyer, Chaim Book, told the NY Post. “His parents alerted administrators at the school and they were ignored. Nothing was done.”
A lawyer for the school district said officials reacted appropriately to the student’s concerns.
The suit, which seeks compensatory damages, was filed May 3 in U.S. District Court. The superintendent and high school principal also are named as defendants.
