Naqba removed from books, stays in reality

Education Minister Saar ordered references to Naqba to be removed from school textbooks.

The previous minister, Peace Now founder Tamir, very sensibly included a short account of Naqba in textbooks for Arab students. The term Naqbacatastropherefers to the founding of Israel. The idea is embedded in the Palestinian conscience anyway, and Tamir merely tried to offer a balanced account of the event.

Saar’s order cannot be implemented because the textbooks which mention Naqba have already been printed for this school year.
