In a recent move by Israel, references to climate activist Greta Thunberg have been removed from the nation’s educational curricula. This decision followed Thunberg’s public support for Gaza, coupled with her refusal to condemn the acts of Hamas, which resulted in the tragic loss of over 1,400 lives, the majority being innocent civilians. Israel strongly feels that Thunberg’s inability to “differentiate between good and evil” renders her unsuitable to be portrayed as an exemplar for students.

Israel’s Education Ministry announced its decision to excise mentions of the famed climate advocate, pointing out her evident bias and her hesitation to openly criticize the terrorist organization, Hamas.

The Ministry’s statement elaborated on the matter: “Considering Greta Thunberg’s unbalanced support for Gaza, without a direct condemnation of Hamas, we’ve opted to eliminate educational resources that previously depicted her as a beacon of inspiration.”

The ministry further criticized Thunberg’s apparent moral ambiguity: “Such a skewed viewpoint, and her evident struggle to discern ‘between good and evil’, deem her unfit to represent forces that work towards genuine positive transformation in our world.”

The young activist’s stance drew criticism from Israel’s eco-conscious community. Over 200 leaders and enthusiasts from the Israeli environmental sector voiced their dismay in a letter issued on Saturday. This correspondence recounted the gruesome acts perpetrated by Hamas on October 7, which included heart-wrenching accounts of families, including infants, being subjected to heinous violence. The environmentalists urged Thunberg to reassess her position and gain a deeper understanding of the ongoing conflict.

The communication also drew attention to the hostages captured by Hamas, highlighting the dire situation of those hostages with severe health issues or disabilities.

The letter addressed Thunberg directly: “Is endorsing human rights synonymous with endorsing the brutal killing of civilians, the assault on women, or the abduction of the vulnerable? Does this align with your vision of championing freedom? Can you truly align yourself with those who show such disregard for human lives, including defenseless children and the elderly?”
