Bennett: I intend to approve the civics book; quotes presented in media have been removed

The controversy surrounding the new Education Ministry’s new civics textbook, To Be Israeli Citizens, continued on Wednesday as Education Minister Naftali Bennett responded to criticism saying he intends to approve the book.

“I will approve the book despite the criticism, the quotations presented in the press are not in the final version," Bennett said in an interview with Army Radio.

“I expect that in the coming days we will see some more petitions from academics and intellectuals against the book without them even reading it, I say [to them]: ‘shame about your protests, it’s cold outside,’” he said.
