An education union in Oakland, California, has condemned Israel's "illegal military occupation of Palestine," and called on teachers to educate students on the situation occurring between the Israelis and Hamas.

"We, the Oakland Education Association, mourn the tragic loss of both Palestinian and Israeli lives these past weeks. We unequivocally condemn the 75 year long illegal military occupation of Palestine. The Israeli government created an apartheid state and the Israeli government leaders have espoused genocidal rhetoric and policies against the people of Palestine," the Oakland Education Association   wrote in a recent Facebook post.

The Oakland Education Association post continued: "As educators of a diverse community here in Oakland, including those with family and friends directly impacted, our conscience demands that we say clearly that OEA calls for a ceasefire and an end to the occupation of Palestine."

Meanwhile, Israel continues to try to identify the bodies of the 7 Oct Massacre.  Anyone missing a headless 10 year old?  Hamas continues to release hostage videos like the one with a mother and twin three year old to display their humanity as they didn’t burn the toddler’s to charcoal.

"End to the occupation..."

I wonder-- what areas do they consider to be "Occupied"? Gaza? The Golan? The Galilee? The Negev? The West Bank? Southern Lebanon? The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan? Eilat?

Maybe...Yemen?

Throughout history the unwritten law of war was that lands conquered by a defending nation in a defensive war were deemed then to belong solely to the defending nation, but when Israel conquered those lands in its defensive war, the rule was amended by the rest of the world to say "UNLESS the defending conquerers are Jews".  IMO the Palestinians are the occupiers of Israeli lands and Israel is a nation from the river to the sea.

Not surprising, the Muslim population in Oakland is over 10 times the Jewish population there.  Smart Dems follow the numbers.

The "educators" should stick to trying to teach their pupils how to read, write. and do math.

Or not bother at all and just remove the testing that proves they are incompetent, then claim it's because African Americans don't test well proving that math and english are racist and need to be done away with. that's Oregon's approach.

In 20 years, at the rate we are going, high school graduates may not be able to read, write, or do simple math. 

Our future leaders, yay!!!
