MK Wants 'Leftist Arabic Fund' Out of Schools

A heated discussion took place Tuesday morning at the Knesset's Education Committee, regarding a leftist fund's involvement in underwriting the teaching of Arabic in Jewish schools.

MK Yoni Chetboun caused a storm when he said that "learning Arabic is important and welcome and the Ministry of Education should formulate such a curriculum itself. But it is equally important to know who the Abraham Fund is; a political organization with a clear leftist agenda."
