GABRIOLA ISLAND, B.C. – A private school that teaches log home and wood fame construction has apologized to a man whose application was rejected because he is from Israel.

B’nai Brith Canada says the Israeli engineering student and amateur carpenter wanted to take a course at the Island School of Building Arts on Gabriola Island, east of Nanaimo in British Columbia.

The group says the student was told the institution does not accept applications from Israel because of conflict and “illegal settlement activity” in the region.

The school says in a statement that after “significant thought and listening to all interested parties,” a decision was made to lift a restriction on accepting students from Israel.

It says an apology has been made and the policy was a mistake.

B’nail Brith says the student has indicated he is no longer interested in taking the course after the school lifted its ban.

Sounds as though it's all been resolved and is a non-story.

Lol You would say that. Time for the hypocrites to call it a non-story.:lol:

It's been resolved and the policy has been changed. It is a non-story.

 

Edit: And speaking of 'hypocrites'.....Of ALL people, YOU really aren't the one to be mentioning them at all. Pots, kettles, you know the drill.

How is it a non-story?

The school still rejected the student on the basis of their country of origin.  Regardless of them changing their policy after the fact or not it is still blatant discrimination.  There should be repercussions for even having such a ban in the first place.

The situation has been resolved. The 'policy' has been rescinded. There is no background or context as to who and how the rejection of Israeli students was implemented in the first place. It's over and it's done. Next......

Lol really? So once its exposed all one has to do is apologize?

It. Has. Been. Resolved.

The. Policy. Has. Been, Rescinded.

The Issue. No Longer, Exists.

It. Is. Over.

 

You only want to flog the dead horse because you think it's a shot at me. Remember who made this 'personal', Strome. Cant seem to leave your personal bias at the door of the TTT.

 

Moving on.....

Get over yourself. That's EXACTLY what I was referencing. Not desiring of a suspension or ban. Get thee back under your bridge.

I guess I hit the nail on the head. :lol:

 

Btw It's clear you don't know what the word hypocrite means. You should people constantly call you one.

Really? starting your day off with a personal attack? You didn't learn with the 'holiday'(s) you received for it?

You're the one who has done the 'antagonizing'. And now we're back to having to remind you of the definition of 'hypocrite' again. :lol:

How many people have told you all you do is antagonise and bait? Is everyone wrong?

 

Again if it is a non story why are you in the thread?
