Earlier this week I reported that an Israeli plan to give special rewards to Arab schools in Jerusalem to adopt the Israeli curriculum, which would allow students to more easily go to Israeli universities, was slammed by the PA Minister of Education as "racist." It is a strictly voluntary program.
The Palestinian Authority Cabinet discussed this at their weekly meeting, and they agreed that Israel giving money to some Arab schools is truly evil.
The Council condemned the requirement of the occupation authorities to provide funds for the restoration of Jerusalem schools by adopting the Israeli curriculum, rather than the Palestinian curriculum. It stressed that the practices and procedures of Israel against Palestinian schools and education in the holy city is a flagrant violation of human rights under international law... The Council demanded not to pass this plan, and the need to defend education and schools in the holy city, and to defend our language, our culture and the Palestinian Arab identity, calling on all relevant international organizations for urgent action to stop this grave Israeli violation.
The same do-nothing cabinet also praised terrorists, or in their words "paid tribute to the heroes of our prisoners languishing in Israeli jails."
