NU/NRP head MK Zevulun Orlev on Sunday slammed a decision by Education Minister Yuli Tamir to prohibit girls from teaching religious studies in government-funded schools as part of their national service. "The one who brings the Palestinian 'nakba' narrative into the educational system and prevents national service girls from teaching religious studies and Zionism cannot serve as education minister in a Jewish state for one more day," he said, referring to Tamir's decision to include mention of the nakba in school text books.
