Complaint about Communists at Jerusalem School

The New Liberal movement (Hatenu'a Haliberalit Hachadasha) sent a letter of protest to Education Minister Gideon Sa'ar on Thursday morning about a giant poster of Communist activist Ernesto "Che" Guevarra hung on the wall of the Boyer School in Jerusalem, notices of support for Jerusalem's social-protest tent city and the presence of tents in the schoolyard.

The letter said, "Extreme leftist movements, represented by the image of mass-murderer Guevarra, could not pass the [representation] threshhold in democratic elections. It is unthinkable that they should get representation on the grounds of a school which is supposed to prevent and be prevented from having political incitement."
