Thank you so much for sharing the story of the the deportation of the young
children of a multi religious multi racial school from Israel.
A similar idea is being tried in Northern Ireland without such tragic results as
in Israel but meeting with little success.
There attempts are being made to bring young Catholic and Protestant children
together in non denominational schools to remove the prejudices that occur when
they are educated separately.
The problem is that each religion believes that such a process would dilute
their dogmas and therefore not acceptable even if it such a dilution would have
positive influence in the peace and reconciliation process.
Underlying all this is the thought that children seeing that children of the
other faith are no different to them basically, might come to the conclusion
that religion was not absolutely necessary.
Of course in that case a reason to fight and die would also be removed and that
would possibly upset the political balance.
Jews led by Zionists took land away from the Palestinians with religion as the
excuse, if that religion were to be diluted by mixing faiths together, Then the
fervor that motivates Israel to continually expanding its borders might
diminish over a few generations and the reason for a Jewish theocratic state
would be removed.
This could lead to a secular democratic form of government that would remove all
religious and racial discrimination.
This is not acceptable not only to Zionists but also unacceptable to those who
see Israel as a surrogate state for its own ambitions in the Middle East.
Basically the removal of a multi religion, multi racial school boils down to:-
In the case of Zionism, the maintenance and extension of land administered under
an Apartheid system
In the case of multi-national corporations, continued and increasing profits
