Education Minister Yuli Tamir ridiculed on Wednesday reports that she had ordered Revisionist leader Ze'ev Jabotinsky removed from the ministry's curriculums. Tamir pointed out that Jabotinsky and his philosophy would be taught to tenth through twelfth graders as part of their history curriculum this coming year as they had been in previous years. Seventh through ninth graders had also learned about Jabotinsky, she said in a statement. Moreover, Tamir pointed out, pupils had answered questions related to Jabotinsky on the winter matriculation exam this year and last year's spring matriculation exam. She also noted that a speech she gave on Jabotinsky day with a link to the Jabotinsky Center Web site appeared on her own Web site. Likud head Binyamin Netanyahu repeated the claim on Wednesday which was first broadcast by a Haaretz/Channel 10 videocast. The report made the claim erroneously after an education ministry curriculum in which Jabotinsky, as well as David Ben-Gurion, were featured was replaced with a different curriculum.
