The Massachusetts Teachers Association’s board of directors accused the U.S. government of complicity in genocide in Gaza, calling for a ceasefire and condemning the U.S. for its alleged involvement in Israel’s actions.

The Anti-Defamation League criticized the statement, arguing that it failed to address Hamas’ attacks and misrepresented the situation.

The union’s statement also included contested death toll numbers from Gaza and was submitted by a retired music teacher and seconded by the president of the Malden Educators Association, who had previously shared a post critical of Israel.

“As an educators’ union, we must take a stand with our union siblings, and promote peace and justice in the region by calling for an end to our government’s complicity with Israel’s genocidal assault on the people of Gaza and intent to take over their territory,” the statement reads.

“How many deaths, how many more children must die, before we take a stand? Silence is complicity,” it continued.

The Anti-Defamation League of New England’s director, Dr. Jonah C. Steinberg said that the community should demand more from those “charged with educating our young people.”

“The Massachusetts Teachers Association’s statement camouflages within its call for a ceasefire an ill-founded attack on Israel – a perverse position, given that Israeli civilians were the victims of the heinous Hamas-led terrorist attack on October 7,” wrote Steinberg.

“At a minimum, the statement’s failure to explicitly and unconditionally condemn the Hamas attack call for the return of all remaining hostages or demand that any ceasefire include a commitment to remove Hamas — whose officials have reportedly vowed to repeat terrorist attacks like the one on October 7th until Israel is destroyed — as a controlling actor in Gaza is revealing.”

“Ostensibly representing those charged with educating our young people, this statement does nothing to further understanding or meaningful discourse on this complex issue,” continued Steinberg.

“The Massachusetts Teachers Association has a responsibility, as representative of educators in our Commonwealth, to do its homework. In this instance, it has not,” concluded Steinberg’s letter.

The union’s statement cited death toll numbers from the Hamas-run Gaza Health Ministry, whose statistics have been challenged by the international community.

“Over 16,248 Palestinians, largely civilians, including over 7,112 children (as of 12/5/23) have been brutally killed in Gaza since October 7, 2023; an estimated 1.8 million people have been internally displaced, and 40,000 (as of 12/2/23) people have wounded in the U.S.-backed assault by the Israeli military on schools, hospitals, and humanitarian organizations,” wrote the educators.
