The heads of the Israel Beiteinu, Shas, and GIL Pensioners factions demanded on Wednesday that Prime Minister Ehud Olmert rein in Education Minister Yuli Tamir on the grounds that she was promoting her own personal ideology. MKs Estherina Tartman, Ya'acov Margi, and Moshe Sharoni were protesting Tamir's Tuesday decision to show the 1967 border on maps in all new textbooks and to support government-run schools that included the subject of the Naqba - the Palestinian name for their eviction from Israel when the state was formed - in their curriculum. The three MKs asked whether Tamir would be willing to support a curriculum that included a day of prayer for Gush Katif evacuees, as well.
