Teacher's Anti-Israel Resolution Angers Many

Posted on Wednesday, January 17 at 14:56 by jensonj
The motion put forward by Jason Kunin, an English teacher and Jewish activist who has frequently criticized Israeli government policies, and Hyssam Hulays, a computer science teacher, decries “Israel’s continued violation of the human rights of Palestinians.” Among other things, the Toronto teachers want the union to develop classroom materials on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and to support an international boycott of Israel. Their motion also calls on the union to press Prime Minister Stephen Harper to criticize Israel’s “aggression” against Gaza and Lebanon, and to end sanctions against the Palestinians’ Hamas government. Neither Kunin nor Hulays returned calls to their schools Wednesday. http://cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/Canada/2007/01/17/pf-3395276.html
