Education Minister Yuli Tamir said Monday that it was important to mark the Green Line in school text book maps for the sake of familiarizing children with prevailing political concepts. Speaking to the Knesset's Education Committee, Tamir said that "marking [the Green Line] is important in light of the widespread use of the term 'the Green Line' in Israeli and international discussion." The education minister caused a political stir earlier this month when she ordered that all new text books being printed should show the Green Line indicating the 1967 borders.
