Bye Bye Israel, Bye Bye Britain

We have charted many points in the rapid decline of Britain. Today comes yet another example of the descent of this once great nation.

From “israel today” comes this story:

A popular textbook used by institutions and teachers to teach English as a second language to students in the UK has been found to have a serious anti-Israel bias.

“I teach English as a foreign language in a further education college in Nottingham, England. I came across the attached map and couldn’t believe my eyes!” Liz Wiseman told Israel Today.

The textbook in question is “Skills in English Writing Level 1″, which includes a map of the Middle East on which Israel is nowhere to be found.

Read the rest.

Obviously the only course is to pulp all the books, fire the person who is responsible and if not drop this publishing house. What are the odds?

    Well who do you think is learning ESL? Pakistanis. Cowed Britain is terrified of fire wielding mobs so they do this. Soon enough though everyone in Britain will have to take ESL should they so choose which they likely wont. At least they can keep warm by burning all the libraries.

    I think all you need to know can be found here:

    The publisher is owned by a Lebanese conglomerate, the Tahseen Khayat Group. Obviously they can publish whatever rubbish they want, but that doesn’t mean schools teaching English as a foreign language need to use their materials. Unfortunately however there is no overall governing body for these EFL schools.

    Although British attitudes to Israel are ambiguous to say the least, I’m not sure there is any specifically British fault here. I’d like to think that the majority of Garnet staff aren’t even aware of what’s in most of their books.

    I’d like to think that.
