Israel announced that it would remove all references to far-Left climate activist Greta Thunberg from its curriculum after she was accused of siding with Palestinian terrorists in social media posts late last week.
The posts from Thunberg come after Hamas terrorists murdered more than 1,400 people in Israel two weeks ago in an unprecedented attack that has permanently altered the region.
“Week 270,” Thunberg posted on X. “Today we strike in solidarity with Palestine and Gaza. The world needs to speak up and call for an immediate ceasefire, justice and freedom for Palestinians and all civilians affected.”
People in the photo held signs that said, “Free Palestine” and “Climate Justice Now!” while Thunberg held a sign that said, “Stand With Gaza.” The “Climate Justice Now!” is a reference to far-Left demands to “decolonize” lands from their supposed “oppressors,” which in this case, according to the far-Left, is Israel.
Thunberg included a light blue stuffed octopus in the photo, which is a reference to anti-Semitic imagery that has long been used to demonize the Jewish people and the state of Israel.
“Hamas is a terrorist organization responsible for the murder of 1,400 innocent Israelis, including children, women, and the elderly, and it has abducted over 200 people to Gaza,” Israel’s Education Ministry said. “This stance disqualifies her from being an educational and moral role model, and she is no longer eligible to serve as an inspiration and educator for Israeli students.”
Thunberg said in a follow-up post that she had no idea the stuffed animal in the photo, when combined with expressing support for the group of people who had just committed terrorist attacks against Israel, could “be interpreted as a symbol for antisemitism.”
“I was completely unaware…” she said, adding that the stuffed animal was used by “autistic people as a way to communicate feelings.”
Thunberg previously wore a shirt reportedly expressing support for far-Left “antifa” extremists and later, after facing backlash, claimed that she had no idea what the shirt meant and that she did not support violence.
Thunberg reposted the tweet with a different photo that included the hashtag “FridaysForFuture,” a far-Left anti-fossil fuel organization that has called for the elimination of Israel.
Thunberg also urged her millions of followers to follow numerous organizations that have good-sounding names but have been accused of being anti-Semitic under the surface and, in many cases, support eliminating Israel, including Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP), Palestinian Youth Movement, Jewish Voice for Peace, and IfNotNow.
The Jerusalem Post added that Thunberg faced intense criticism from hundreds of Israeli climate activists over her posts.
Some signed onto a letter that said they were “deeply hurt, shocked and disappointed with your tweets and posts regarding Gaza, which are appallingly one-sided, ill-informed, superficial and are in complete contrast to your ability to deep dive into details and get to the bottom of complex issues.”
They said she sided “with terrorists, with the worst and darkest representatives of humans, and plainly – with the wrong side of history.”
