Teaching Racism and Incitement: Which Race is Semitic in Israel?

racism_edited-1One of the questions that turns up on a worksheet at an alternative high school in the city of Petah Tikva in central Israel on the subject of the Holocaust in Nazi Germany during the II World War, asked the students: “From your acquaintance with the peoples that live in Israel, which is the Semitic superior race and which is the inferior race?” The question aimed consolidating of the Nazi racism in the hearts and minds of the students, according to Haaretz newspaper site which revealed the scandal today.

Haaretz wrote: Teenagers in an alternative school program were surprised this week to discover the following question on a worksheet on “Nazi ideology and policy”: “From your acquaintance with the peoples that live in Israel, which is the superior race and which is the inferior race?”

The students were part of the Hila program in Petah Tikvah — Hila provides education for teenagers who have dropped out of the state school system. Some 8,000 students are enrolled in the program nationwide. The teachers are employed as subcontractors and not by the Education Ministry.

The worksheet was a prep sheet for a test culminating 10 years of Holocaust studies; for these students the test takes the place of Israel’s matriculation exam in history. Read about anti-Semitism

    Good story, not the actions inside, but the story. I am glad I live in China now. Movement into this country has been slow, and the government is well aware. I had a very good friend who turned on me. He was not a European Jew, but he somehow found that Israel was a good place. It went against everything I knew him for and everything I thought about him. He had been for years against the idea. I am guessing he went back to the talmud. Being Jewish is one thing, but following the talmud is not Jewish!

    I said I am glad I live in China now, from the US, because people do not use these distinctions. It is not such a segmented society and when you ask about Israel, most object simply because one force is taking another. It is that simple, but lobbies and propoganda wont let it be.
