Peres slams Petah Tikva schools: 'Is this a way to accept olim?'

President Shimon Peres on Sunday slammed three Petah Tikva schools that have refused to enroll Ethiopian students. "Is this a way to accept olim? Humiliating treatment of this kind offends and hurts all of us," Peres, who was attending the opening of the Nofey Habsor School in the Eshkol region, said during a meeting with teenagers. The president called on the students to do whatever they can to eliminate racial discrimination.
