USGCA Report Reveals Hateful Curriculum in PA Schools
A report by the United States Government Accountability Office detailing the hateful and anti-Israel curriculum being taught to Palestinian children by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA)  in PA administered cities in the West Bank was declassified this week. "It is unacceptable that the textbooks that are used delegitimize Israel and demonize the Jewish people, it is unacceptable that this program attempts to engrain this hatred in the hearts of children," declared Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY). "American’s hard earned money went towards its funding and it is unacceptable that the State Department lied to Congress about these very realities."

Aviation Training School Launched in Eilat
Israel Air Force veteran and El Al pilot Yochanan Shemer is leading an aviation academy named CAA in Israel’s Red Sea resort city of Eilat to address the looming shortage of pilots, mechanics and technicians in Israel’s small but growing aviation industry. “In Israel, the aviation world is particularly limited, with three main companies operational here,” he told the Jerusalem Post. “There is currently a very severe shortage of pilots in the world, and that shortage will also increase in Israel. The number of pilots that come from the air force to Israeli airlines is decreasing every year, and the number of pilots arriving from civilian studies is increasing.”
