Leeds educator sorry for calling Palestinian flag a ‘call to arms’
A Leeds school principal apologizes for calling the Palestinian flag a “call to arms” and “symbol of antisemitism.”
Mike Roper, head of the Allerton Grange High School in Leeds, was strongly criticized for his remark.
He later apologizes.
“I am deeply sorry that a particular example I used in that assembly referring to the Palestinian flag has caused such upset within the community. That was never my intention,” he says.
