Teaching Jewish Children.
by Steven Shamrak.
Israeli Education Minister Yuli Tamir signed a directive to public schools to mark the 50th anniversary of the ‘massacre in Kafr Kassam’; the shooting of Israeli Arabs by security forces during a military conflict in 1956. It took a week, almost no time at all by Israel’s political calendar, to approve this self-hating idea, which was suggested by MK Zehava Gal-On (Meretz).
I wonder, will the children of Israel learn that those Arabs most likely ignored or were defiant of a military curfew prohibiting movement during the conflict? Will they learn about the uncountable number of massacres of the Jews by Arabs, including the one in Hevron, before and after the establishment of the state of Israel?
Will the Jewish children learn about David ben Gurion’s order to sink, in order to maintain political superiority, Irgun’s weapon supply boat Altalena [June 1948], at the time when Jews had no arms to fight Arabs? Will they learn that the executioner was Yitzhak Rabin, who relentlessly sunk the boat and killed the Jewish crew?
The left wing of the Israel political bureaucracy does not want people to know how they betrayed Zionism. How after the Oslo agreement, they promptly took Zionism education out of Israel’s schools. Even in the army Zionist political education is restricted. At the same time the Arabs are continuously teaching their children hatred toward the Jews.
The corrupt, self-centred, egomaniac politicians do not hesitate to murder Jews - physically, morally and spiritually - in order to serve their own interests. It is easy for them to control and manipulate the nation without the National goal. That is why they foster life of apathy and despair in Israel.
Will Jewish children learn that Palestine is Eretz-Israel? Not just because it is our, G-d given, ancestral land. It was approved as the Land of Israel, including Jordan, by the League of Nations in July 1922. The same organization gave the opportunity to Arabs, through the system of mandates, to create their own states. Will they learn how Britain and France, together with Arab countries, robbed the Jews of our historical, moral and legal right to the entire Land of Israel, in order to remain in control of the Suez canal and to secure the flow of oil?
These are the truths that Jewish children must learn! They must rebel against hypocrisy and self-hate that has been fostered and propagated in Jewish communities by ‘politicly correct’, morally bankrupt and corrupt leadership!
