Israeli civics exam: explain why Jewish girls shouldn’t hang around with Arabs

Created on 11 June 2012

A brave teacher in Israel has circulated on Facebook the text of a racist civics preparatory exam approved by Israel’s Ministry of Education. In it, pupils are asked to use concepts from civics to express their opinion about a letter calling on “daughters of Israel” (i.e. Jewish girls) not to hang around with Arabs. Racism and misogyny disguised as civics.

“The wives of rabbis published a letter calling on daughters of Israel not to hang around with Arabs. There are those who support this letter and those who think it’s not appropriate. Express your opinion about the letter. In your answer, present two reasons and explain using concepts you learned in civics.”

 

The preparatory exam further provides a sample response in support of the aforementioned letter:

 

“I support the letter of the wives of rabbis.

  1. If the daughters of Israel will hang around with Arabs, they are liable to have relationships and marry them. This would harm the Jewish majority of the state.
  2. If the daughters of Israel will hang around with Arabs, they are liable to fall victims of violence for nationalistic reasons. This would harm their right to life and security.

Israel’s Minister of Education, Gideon Sa’ar (Likud), has proclaimed that he is “conducting a Jewish revolution” in Israeli schools. Sa’ar is the mastermind behind, amongst other things, the plan to conduct school “field trips” to the occupied West Bank city of Hebron.
