Opposition leader Binyamin Netanyahu repeated Sunday that as prime minister, he would "remove the 'nakba' (catastrophe) from the education system and restore Jabotinsky." Netanyahu was referring to the decision by Tamir to include the Palestinian account of the War of Independence in the curriculum of Arab Israeli schools. During a press conference in Tel Aviv, Netanyahu stated that in "the last mathematics Olympics, even Iran beat us. It's a matter of national strength and national security." The opposition leader said it was a "realistic goal" to restore Israel's children to the top ten in the world within a decade.
