Outgoing Prime Minister Yair Lapid announces the launch of a hotline for parents opposed to “the extreme and dangerous content” of far-right Noam MK Avi Maoz, who is said to be given control of outside programming at schools in the presumed incoming government of Benjamin Netanyahu.

Lapid urges parents to contact local authorities and schools to ensure “liberal content” is taught in place of “the dark, homophobic, nationalistic and violent doctrine” of Noam.

He adds that the hotline being launched by his Yesh Atid party will be for “gathering information regarding the attempts to insert dark content into the education system,” as well as for providing legal advice to parents.

Amid pushback against Maoz’s appointment, MK Galit Distel Atbaryan of Netanyahu’s Likud party claims to Channel 12 news that Maoz won’t be able to do anything without Netanyahu’s permission.
