And so the time has come for a teachers revolt. When the government is bad we must encourage good citizenship. The only thing we have to fear is fear itself: We don't have to hide forbidden books under the desk, we can offer them to the students. Let them read and judge for themselves. We don't have to bring them to Hebron, like babies captured by settlers. They don't have to celebrate at City of David, courtesy of the Elad organization, to reinforce their standing as good Jews. They don't have to visit the settlement of Ariel, specifically, in order to learn the benefits of higher education. Sa'ar is a man with a single truth, and such truth is a lie.
It is not only teachers who should join the revolt against efforts to shutter the marketplace of ideas and viewpoints and put up in its place one big stall sponsored by vested interests. Although Chief of Staff Benny Gantz is a soldier, every soldier is first of all a citizen. As chief of staff he is subordinate to the authority of the elected leadership, of course, and when issued an order he obeys. But there is another option, that of resigning in advance not in order to cover his own ass but rather as a way of putting forth his own assessment of the situation. There's an idea! Let's see Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak go into an Iranian adventure bare-assed.
I know Sarid is mostly bald but that his head is as ass, as well?
