Nakba Day approved in Israeli schools

In an effort to confirm for the Arabs that Israel really is a stolen state created by dastardly terrorist Jews who expelled innocent, indigenous moslems into filthy refugee camps, Ehud Olmert's Education Minister has authorized NAKBA DAY to be accepted as legitimate and taught as curriculum in Israeli schools!

( Arab schoolchildren in Israel will be taught next year that the founding of the State of Israel was a tragedy (Nakba in Arabic) in accordance with a widespread Arab view of the event.

The Education Ministry, headed by Prof.Yuli Tamir (Labor), has approved adding the Arab version to the curriculum in response to calls by Arab nationalists who requested the “Nakba” version be taught in their schools.

The new directive approves a Grade 3 textbook "Living Together in Israel," which was written by Arabs who left their homes during the 1948 War of Independence and claim that Israel took their land. The textbook evenhandedly points out that the Arab nations refused to accept the United Nations partition plan creating the Jewish State and a new Trans-Jordan country.

"The Arab narrative deserves to be told in Israel," Tamir explained. Arab MKs congratulated her for her decision, though immediately raised new demands. Arab MK Hana Sweid said Tamir should now incorporate Arab poetry into Jewish school curricula, while MK Jamal Zechalke called for "Arab cultural autonomy" under which Arabs would solely determine Israeli-Arab schools' curricula regarding Arab history and culture.

WTF is going on in Israel? I never thought I'd see the day when Nakba Day is part of the Israeli curriculum. The end is near for the modern Israel experiment I fear. May the one that rises up in its ashes have more merit.
