    The Education Ministry has instructed teachers across the country to put an emphasis on Zionism during the upcoming school year. Schools have been mandated to focus on Israel's national anthem and symbols in order to instill Jewish and democratic values in students.

    As part of the initiative, kindergarteners are to be introduced to the Israeli flag and the menorah, and are to sing the anthem on public holidays. Elementary and high school students are to learn about Zionist icons and prominent events that shaped the national symbols during civics and history classes; furthermore, they are to study about the connection between the Jewish people and the Land of Israel.

    What about the Muslims and Christians?

    Oh yeah, they are not real citizens.

    Yes they are. It will be taught in all schools in Israel, if that program is to pass.

    What about the pictures of Pali kindergarteners with bomb belts, AK47s and RPGs. That's not indoctrination? Or classes on heritage?

    Noam Chomsky remarks,"For those who stubbornly seek freedom around the world, there can be no more urgent task than to come to understand the mechanisms and practices of indoctrination. These are easy to perceive in the totalitarian societies, much less so in the propaganda system to which we are subjected and in which all too often we serve as unwilling or unwitting instruments."

    There is no country or even society that does not teach its own values to its children The SUPERMAN tv series is an excellent example of political indoctrination

    You and Noam can both eat shit and review Muslim societies if you're looking for totalitarian shitholes of hatred, intolerance, and persecution.

    Noam makes a living by publishing stuff that excites mental "self-gratification" in coffee houses He is ok if you take him for what he is He is to "intellectual thought" something like andy warhol's work was to "art" Both of "something to offer" in the context of what they are doing
