Formal complaint filed against teacher

Reader comment on item: Why the Left Loves Osama [and Saddam]

Submitted by Abigail Browning (Israel), Apr 5, 2003 at 13:20

I just filed a formal complaint against my Israeli teacher for tearing down the United States and in the same breath calling Saddam Hussein a "bubba" and stating before a classroom of olim how much the Middle East needs leaders like him (Saddam Hussein).
When I had the meeting with the counsellor and the menehelet of the school, they asked me what I expected them to do with the letter I had written to them, and I replied: "I don't care what YOU do with it, but I can tell you I will not leave it alone. This teacher (and I might add, many like her) does not need to be teaching olim from all over the world coming to Israel, and ESPECIALLY inciting those from the US when America is preparing to go to war."
It is appaling what is being taught by the left through the educational system (in ulpans and other education for olim), using their position as a platform against everything that we hold dear as a Jew leaving our native countries to come to Israel to live as a Jew being denied that opportunity in other countries.
If these same things are being taught in the public school system, which I have no doubt it is, it will systematically destroy every vestige of Jewish identity that a child has over a period of the 16-18 years of educational programming.
