The Directorate of Education and Training gave the Gilbert propaganda SMS for final exam.
Untruth about Israel’s ” Wall ” and Mads Gilbert’s most blood-curdling SMS from Gaza during the war in 2009 is currently served by the Directorate of Education on the final examination in Norwegian upper secondary school . Approximately 40,000 students received not a single word that could give Israeli perspective.

A shocked teacher has sent a copy of the current examination in Norwegian primary goal [see PDF] to MIFF . All of graduating students who did general studies in high school, over 40,000 students , were served strong anti – Israeli propaganda in the first examination paper .
Send your protest to the Directorate of e – mail post@utdanningsdirektoratet.no .
Send your protest to the Ministry by e – mail postmottak@kd.dep.no .

In the exam paper, students are referred to the image of a graffiti drawing by British street artist Banksy and an SMS text of the Norwegian doctor Mads Gilbert . With about 250 words will students do brief account of some key instruments “used and what are ” the two texts ” .
” This graffiti is painted on the wall that the Israeli authorities have built in the West Bank . The wall is eight feet high and surrounds including the city of Bethlehem, ” said the Education Directorate caption to the Banksy illustration .
The directorate Education does not explain why the wall was built , nor that the security barrier is essentially a fence. the Directorate of Education  presents the case entirely mistaken when they claim the wall ” surrounds ” Bethlehem.
Pedagogues in the Directorate could just taken a quick look at the map of the security barrier’s route . They could , for example, used the variant organization B’Tselem has published , the organization that is funded by the powerful Israel – critical forces in Europe and working exclusively with the human rights of Palestinians. The map section of Bethlehem shows that the city is not surrounded.
(this is the caption to an illustration in the Miff article, well worth having a look at )An elementary school pupil with basic understanding of maps can easily see that the security barrier’s route does not surround Bethlehem. Education Directorate educators can not.

Gilbert’s text message
The Directorate of Education reproduced the full a message Mads Gilbert sent from the ” Gaza , Palestine ” at . 13.50 on 3 January 2009.
” They bombed the central vegetable market in Gaza city two hours ago . 80 injured 20 killed.
All came here to Shifa . Hades !
We are wading in death , blood and amputate .
Lots of children. Pregnant woman.
I have never experienced anything so horrible. Now we hear tanks.
Tell forward , send forth, shout it all DO SOMETHING ! Doing more
We live in the history books now, everyone! ”
the Directorate of Education  writes as a comment to the SMS :
” The Norwegian doctor Mads Gilbert and politician working for the Palestinian health care system through the organization WAC when it broke out an armed conflict in 2008-2009. When the city was bombed Gaza , Gilbert and his colleague among the only western witnesses to war . Gilbert sent this SMS to their contacts in Norway . ”
The Directorate has also written explanation to three words Gilbert uses :
” Shifa : hospital in Gaza , Palestine
Hades : Hades in Greek mythology
Amputate (medical expression ) torn body parts ”
In the exam paper asks Secondary Education students use precise terminology . How accurate have they been, when they lie about that Bethlehem is surrounded ? How precise is the SMS that they render Gilbert ? that the two Norwegian doctors were the only western witnesses, is a myth that was created during the war. Among other things, the Italian journalist Vittorio Arrigoni in the area. Two years later he was murdered by a Salafist group in Gaza .
There are few wars that have been followed by as many witnesses equipped with cameras during the Gaza war in 2009. Israel denied entry to journalists for the sake of their safety. Through the smuggling tunnels in the Rafah area was the ability to get to the Gaza Strip relatively good .
the directorate of Education  fails in precision also at other times . Gilbert and physician colleague Erik Fosse arrived in  Gaza four days after the war had begun. The war began on 27 December , the doctors decided to take on 28 December and crossed the border into Gaza on 31 December , according to Freedom of Expression .
Thus the error when the Directorate of Education writes in exam text that Gilbert worked for the Palestinian health care system ” when it broke out an armed conflict” .
It should be easy for graduates to point out which instruments Gilbert made ​​the use of its text . He has a habit of exaggerating powerful when he talks about Gaza. For years , both long before the war in 2009 , and long after , the situation in the area was ” worse than ever ” . Gilbert travels around Norway and claims ” the entire Gaza was reduced to rubble .”
When the Directorate of Education parrots  Gilbert, without a single word that can explain the Israeli version , they make themselves useful idiots for Red – politician’s anti – Zionist campaign.
In all wars , especially wars between regular military forces and guerrillas hiding in their own population, are unfortunately civilians affected. When Israel in 2009, fought back against the terrorists in the Gaza Strip , it occurred with greater care than almost any other country would use . Israel followed the rules of warfare ” well above average ” compared to what is common elsewhere . It is not MIFF conclusion , but the conclusion to senior Cecilie Hellestveit , one of the foremost experts in Norway on the law of war . Hellestveit have justified this in a lecture to look at MIFF YouTube channel .
The Eidsvåg – Committee found in 2011 ” a clear correlation between the increase in antisemitism and the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians during the second intifada .” When the Directorate of Education uses an exam , one of the most widely distributed , to spread one-sided and inaccurate information about Israel , the consequences can be very unfortunate .
Are you tired of anti – Israeli propaganda ? Join With Israel for peace !

 

The school has been reduced to a Campaign
The teacher who sent a copy of the examination paper to MIFF requesting anonymity . It probably says a lot about how disclosing the propaganda campaign will be received by this persons colleagues
The teacher writes in a comment:
” I am appalled , but unfortunately not surprised. There are tons of similar biased and one-sided examples in textbooks in several subjects in high school . In addition, I learn that this also occurs in several textbooks in primary schools. When we in addition know that students at different levels often are subjected to unbalanced teaching, guest lectures , films , theater , role play etc, etc, I believe the school has been been reduced to a campaign . Students are brainwashed , not directly to Jew hatred , but to Israel – hatred. ”

This, in addition to several other left-wing role, undoubtedly the overwhelming political influence and point of view of those who have made ​​the exam. It was left-wing propaganda from end to end. I am shocked and appalled that any such escape and school is supposed to be politically neutral arena . ”

Untruth about Israel’s ” Wall ” and Mads Gilbert’s most blood-curdling SMS from Gaza during the war in 2009 is currently served by the Directorate of Education on the final examination in Norwegian upper secondary school . Approximately 40,000 students received not a single word that could give Israeli perspective.
To be given this exam paper was perceived very tough for many students . Norwegian – Israeli Ayelet Hansen Oslo says that she initially refused to answer the task.
– I was told that I had to answer the task, so I felt somehow that I was compelled to write something that certainly was not true, because I do not want a bad grade . I have never felt so pushed exam in my life by management , says Hansen.
A young politician active in the Conservative Party of Norway writes:
“I knew I was really provoked. First, choose Israel against Palestine on Norwegian exam ‘s crank . Second, consider using a left extremist who Gilbert is wrong as well when he says only lie. Third act all the other tasks of repression and refugees. Putting Israel in such a context is wrong . ”
– Used like 5 minutes to pull myself to focus on the task , adding youth to the politician .

A fourth student writing to MIFF .
” The mission of the exam was one of the most distasteful I have experienced in a long time . In addition , this was a Part A task that everyone, whether they wanted to or not , had to answer . Instead of that we should make brief account of some key instruments used and what is the purpose of the two texts , we should also tasked to consider the two sources . Here are the dish face of teachers and school management! ”
A fifth student writing to MIFF on Facebook .
” A shame , was greatly angered when I read the paper. ”
A sixth student goes even further .
“I was about to vomit when I got the task … ”

    Google translate of Leif Knutsens blog-“answer” to the exam question – a 250 word essay:

    http://leifern.blogg.no/1401299641_fasit_p_kortsvaroppga.html

    Leif’s 250 (Norwegian) word essay:
    There are in fact three instruments here: the graffiti of Banksy , the message from Mads Gilbert, and also the description of both these tasks.
    The purpose of all these measures is to influence public opinion by hijacking the premise of contested issues in the relations between Israel and the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza. What they have in common is the misleading use of facts, partly by direct error, and by important omissions .
    This is a well-known domination technique among propagandists , as they try to establish a certain reality experience as the only authentic one . By excluding other viewpoints and additional facts that can differentiate and fill out our understanding of the news current events and contradictions that cause them.
    For example it is misleading to refer to Mads Gilbert as a ” politician ” since he primarily is known as an anti-Israel activism. It is not right either that he worked in Gaza when hostilities started ; he went down there when the conflict was a fact . Nor is it true that security barrier – which only in some stretches is a wall – ” surrounds ” Bethlehem .
    Gilbert and Banksy attempts both through comparisons and contrasts to promote hyperbolics. Without in any way underestimating the suffering of non-combatants in Gaza during the conflict in 2009, is the image of a “hades” melodramatic . And even without separation barriers , children in Bethlehem live inland.

    These three have in common that they assume that the audience they are aimed at are not going to find oiut for themselves the real facts . Summing it up, they stupify the difficult debate on an important subject.

    *********************************

    Leif Knutsen adds:

    A good answer – in the direction of what I’m trying me on here – is too much to demand of students in high school – they have no reason to believe that the task description contains factual errors .

    Therefore , the task is practically impossible to answer well . The only right thing to do is to disregard it, and offer students the opportunity to go up to exam again with different tasks.

    In addition, this exercise highlights the need for much greater emphasis on school education in critical thinking.

    Anti-Israel propaganda and the BBC.
    I am in shock. no really, I am. The NRK usually copies the BBC for it’s hate against Israel. well today on BBC News there was a report from Israel. Not one bad word. Really, can you believe that.

    The programme related to latest Israeli start-ups and achievements in high-tech. Various companies were shown and the latest products they have produced and the CEOs interviewed. Many of the items were military originated, but also today for civilian use. The journalist showed a simple USB and confirmed that Israel was the originator, along wit so many other achievements. I now expect all BDS followers to herewith give up their computers and laptops etc to charity and vow never again to buy/use Israeli products again.

    The reason for Israel’s achievements was confirmed due to the IDG where initiative is mandatory. This offers a higher rate of confidence to go it alone and see through one’s own plans. They mentioned yet another start up that Google has just bought..

    So Mads Gilbert and all you rotten Jew/Israel haters, just what have you achieved today????

    Khag sameakh le Shevu’ot.

    Just watched programme on British TV on the Yesterday Channel. Brilliant!
    Titled “Black Ops.” Write up includes “It’s terrifying for the world to imagine the ruthless Assad regime in Syria being nuclear armed for the nation’s enemy and neighbour Israe, the nightmare could never be allowed to happen. Years of secret elite forces operations paved the way for Israel’s aerial destruction of the regime’s weapons plant in 2007: the reconstruction of the missions is a match for the adrenaline fuelled Bond storyline.
    If you have a chance to view it. Do so, as you will not regret it. As the saying goes – Only Israel………..Be proud my friends, only Israel has the khutpah to succeed with the impossible.

    Whenever I meet an older Norwegian I think of the word “Quisling” Nearly every one is a real troublemaker. They are so arrogant especially the ones that live in other countries.

    They appear to be friends with other nationalities but what they love to do is tell a pack of lies to turn one against the other. No wonder when people find out what these Dumb, Pig Ignorant, and Gutless Nazi Quislings are really like. from that day hence they never trust Norwegians.

    Give me people from Sweden and Germany and other European Countries, they are more trustworthy, have manners, and have 10 times the courage of any Norwegian Ar****pe.

    A great idea for recycling I use to recycle paper. Take a full sheet and print a Norwegian flag on the four corners, Use greyscale low resolution setting on your printer, that way you will use less ink and as Norges are not worth the expense of coloured ink for the printing.

    Next tear the sheet of paper in four separate sheets, now you will have the perfect tool so that when you use the toilet you can use the Norwegian Flag to wipe your bum on. Finally you can send this emblem representing Norges to where they really belong. Flush them down the Crapper.
