Jewish kindergartens to start each week with national anthem

The recent spike in ultra-nationalist legislation is by no means confined to MKs and grand issues like separation of powers and freedom of speech:

The Education Ministry has released new regulations stipulating that beginning next year, all kindergarten teachers in the Jewish sector will start each new week with raising the flag and singing the anthem. They will also be required to teach national symbols to the children once a week, so that by Independence day (within six months) all the children know the national anthem by heart…. the ministry told Haaretz these regulations will not be implemented in the Arab sector,  adding the pre-school department of the ministry was still holding consultations to see how these changes can be applied there.

What can you say to that? Israeli satire is becoming more and more prophetic by the day.
