Fire Yuli Tamir & Get Rid Of New The New Israeli Textbooks
It is not the first time that an SRRT-style radical leftist has managed to become the Israeli Minister of Education (others of that mould were Shulamit Aloni and Yossi Sarid), but the current one, Yuli Tamir, is especially toxic. She's changed the maps in new Israeli textbooks so that they show only the pre-1967 borders...the ones she foolishly wants Israel to revert to. Years after the Six Day War, the late Abba Eban, by no means a right-winger, correctly referred to them as "the Auschwitz borders." He knew that the pre-1967 lines made always-beleaguered Israel more vulnerable...that given military realities, they were impossible to defend. Israel needs to fire Yuli Tamir!
