The Israeli Ministry of Education will remove curricula from Israeli textbooks that address Greta Thunberg’s climate activism.
This is what an Israeli newspaper reported HaaretzIn reference to the ministry’s statement.
Her position does not qualify her to be an educational and moral role model, and she is no longer suitable to be a source of inspiration for students in Israel.
The move comes after the climate activist shared an Instagram post earlier this week stating that genocide had occurred in Gaza.
Thunberg said: The world must raise its voice and demand an immediate ceasefire and justice and freedom for the Palestinians and all affected civilians.
Thunberg’s pro-Palestinian commitment now has consequences.
These statements sparked strong reactions in Israel, including from Israeli army spokesman Ari Sharoz Shalikar.
He told the newspaper that anyone who sympathizes with Greta in any way in the future is, in my opinion, a supporter of terrorism. POLITICO.
Shalekar later apologized for his comment on Thunberg.
– I spoke out of a deep feeling of sadness, and my words do not reflect my personal point of view or the point of view of the Israeli army. I apologize.
Greta Thunberg has not yet commented on the censorship.
