    Children are bombarded with war as well. Maybe it's time to also stop the roll-call with the flag, to withdraw the standing invitation to army representatives to lecture young people within the framework of their school curriculum. We're hearing that Gush Katif evacuees are allowed to lecture schools too, to "communicate their pain". When Israeli children get a normal education (like a full day just for starters), we'll get a political class worthy of such a title. The bunch of mis-educated opportunists we've got at the moment will be the end of us if we don't end disguised propagandizing. Religion is fine, controversy is fine. Party politics and war-mongering are at least as obscene as sexual explicitness. Ban all of them from schools and go back to pure, even-handed education. The rest's for university.
