The Toronto District School Board is indoctrinating our children.
“Canadian Communities, Past & Present” is a textbook designed for sixth-grade social studies classrooms.
It contains all the usual globalist, crypto-Marxist mumbo-jumbo about motifs like “global citizenship”. But it goes one step further. The textbook discusses things like immigration and war as it relates to Canada and the world. And then, there’s a passage about child soldiers.
It starts off rather innocuously and objectively, describing the UN Convention on the Rights of a child which forbids children under the age of 15 from armed conflicts.
And then begins to name countries in which child soldiers have been used in armed conflict. Afghanistan, Colombia, Iraq, Israel, Libya, Mali, and Yemen.
The textbook includes Israel as a country that uses child soldiers.
The Israeli Defence Forces are one of the most publicly profiled, best funded, and well-outfitted armies in the world. In Israel, military service is mandatory for Jews above the age of 18.
Israel does not use nor would they ever need to use child soldiers.
The IDF, unlike the other nations on that list, have very clear and inviolable age restrictions. There is not a single credible story that exists anywhere about the IDF every recruiting or using child soldiers in any instance since the formation of the nation-state of Israel.
On the other hand, Israel’s enemies’ use of child soldiers is well documented.
