What can we do about bad, mis-, or disinformation?

For example, the claim that “the Arabs” forced the Jewish people out of Israel/Palestine.

I figure on one hand there might be honest historical ignorance. But on the other, I can’t correct this without getting slapped for it, and this reinforces current ethnic and religious hatred.

All I can come up with is keep fighting the good fight, and make friends not battles. And hold on and ride it out the best one can.
