Education Minister Yuli Tamir instructed Israeli school's to mark the 50 year anniversary of 'Massacre of Kafr Kassem' on Monday night. The subject of the Kafr Kassem massacre, during which 47 Israeli-Arabs were murdered by Border Police in October 1956, was taken off Israeli schools' civics curriculum by former education minister Limor Livnat in 2002. The move was brought on following a request of MK Zehava Gal-On (Meretz) to return the subject to the national education curriculum last week.
