Cabinet approves bill to ban Breaking the Silence from schools

The Ministerial Committee for Legislation voted unanimously on Sunday to provide government backing to legislation to bar the left-wing NGO Breaking the Silence from schools.

The measure would allow the education minister, “as the head of the system and the person responsible for the Israeli students,” to ban specific individuals or organizations that are not a part of the education system from performing activities inside schools, when the activities “undermine the educational goals or harm IDF soldiers,” according to a ministerial memorandum.
