DISPATCHES FROM THE EDUCATION APOCALYPSE: Israel removes Greta Thunberg from school curriculum over anti-Israel post.
The Education Ministry has said it will remove any reference to climate activist Greta Thunberg after she published a post over the weekend holding an anti-Israel sign reading “stand with Gaza.”
“Hamas is a terrorist organization responsible for the murder of 1,400 innocent Israelis, including children, women, and the elderly, and it has abducted over 200 people to Gaza,” the ministry said. “This stance disqualifies her from being an educational and moral role model, and she is no longer eligible to serve as an inspiration and educator for Israeli students.”
Thunberg faced criticism over the weekend from hundreds of Israeli climate activists after she posted on X that “today we strike in solidarity with Palestine and Gaza. The world needs to speak up and call for an immediate ceasefire, justice and freedom for Palestinians and all civilians affected.”
I’m glad to see the Israeli Education Ministry belatedly coming to its senses, but why were there “references” to her in the first place?
