Palestinian Matriculation Exams Filled With Problematic Material 11/18/2019

Pa;estinian Matriculation Exams Filled With 'Problematic Material,' WAtchdog Finds
by ALGEMEINER Staff

High school matriculation exams serve to reinforce “hateful content” taught in Palestinian schools, underscoring “the need for an urgent and determined intervention in the Palestinian curriculum,” a Jerusalem-based watchdog has warned.

In a report released this month, the Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School Education (IMPACT-se) found that six of the 26 tawjihi exams for 2019, which are taken by twelfth-grade Palestinian students and are necessary for enrollment in Palestinian and some Arab universities, included “problematic material” that reflects themes taught in Palestinian Authority textbooks and on official preparatory websites.

Hundreds of members of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) converged on the University of Minnesota Twin Cities this past weekend for the anti-Israel organization’s ninth annual national conference, an event a campus Jewish leader called “disturbing.”

Under the banner of “Beyond Struggle: From Roots to Branches Towards Liberation,” the three-day gathering began with a celebration of the host SJP chapter’s success in passing a pro-BDS measure last year.

As the student arm of the boycott movement targeting Israel, which a recent report on antisemitism noted is a main driver of Jew-hatred on campus, SJP is looking to mainstream its advocacy, aided by the emergence of new public figures like Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota...

LIBRARIANS FOR FAIRNESS MAY BE DISBANDING 10/4/2019

The long-retired librarian who has coordinated this organization, since its founding, suffers from high blood pressure. Events which have occurred within the last week or so, have severely exacerbated the condition. At the insistence of worried family members, the LfF coordinator sadly resigned from the non-salaried position. Unless someone is found to assume its leadership, Librarians for Fairness, which has done so many wonderful things for our Israel, will cease to exist... Read the full story...
