It is only natural that students in the Arab sector should study the two most influential Prime Ministers of the country in which they live. That doesn't mean that history must be whitewashed or that Ben-Gurion and Begin were angels. How can Arab Israelis claim their legitimate place in Israeli society and at the same time ignore these two figures. All Israeli citizens should be taught the history of their country, which should include both of the evolving Jewish and Arab narratives. The fact that Arab educators are in an "uproar" about the plan to study Ben-Gurion and Begin is a sad reflection of the current Arab-Israeli leadership.
