As a result of her support for the Palestinian people, Israel’s Education Ministry decided to ban any mention of the climate activist Greta Thunberg.

Following her social media posts in support of the Palestinian people, amid a devastating Israeli war on Gaza, the Israeli government responded by a decision to remove any mention of the young activist from the Israeli public education curriculum, the Israeli news platform, Ynet reported on Monday.

“Hamas is a terror organization,” the ministry said in a statement, adding that “this position (Thunberg’s solidarity with the Palestinian people) disqualifies her from being a worthy inspiration, and thus she is no longer eligible to serve as a role model for Israeli students.”

The famed environmentalist, however, didn’t mention Hamas or any other Palestinian group in her solidarity post.

Greta Thunberg Calls on the World: ‘Stand with Gaza’

Stand with Gaza

Thunberg published a social media post on her Instagram account last Friday calling for people to “stand with Gaza.”

The potential Nobel Peace Prize candidate, wrote the following post under the photo:

“Today we are striking in solidarity with Palestine and Gaza. The world needs to speak up and call for an immediate cease-fire, justice and freedom for Palestinians and all civilians affected.”

Three other young women were also in the photo, each holding a sign. One sign read, “This Jew Stands with Palestine,” another read “Climate Justice Now,” and a third carried a Palestinian flag with the words “Free Palestine”.

The young women joined many respected activists, intellectuals, art and culture icons around the world making similar demands.
