An anti-Israel textbook in the UK...

You expect to see this in the Palestinian Authority, not in the UK...
Students are lobbying to change an A-Level geography textbook which makes anti-Israeli statements.

The 2009 edition of AQA's geography A2 textbook, by John Smith and Roger Knill, compares Israel's security barrier to the Berlin Wall and says it is the new "symbol of a divided world".

King David Manchester student Adi Manning, 17, has a petition signed by students, head of governors Joshua Rowe, head teacher Brian Levy and pro-Israel student group, the Institute for Middle East Democracy.

The textbook says Israel's "stated reason" for building the wall was to prevent bombings, but that it "severely restricts the movements of civilians, most of whom are not bombers."

It also calls the barrier "surreptitious expansion" by Israel. The textbook offers an explanation for Palestinian suicide bombers - "They have no government, no country, no army and few resources - so they resort to bombing to make their point."

I agree with the symbolic part of the Wall but not the part trying to justify suicide bombers. Cannot justify that.
