It's come to this: Moronic Leftist MK thinks Jews first came to Israel from Egypt

Someone must have tipped Stav Shaffir off as to how boorish this tweet was, because it's no longer in her Twitter feed. Fortunately, Channel 10's Akiva Novick (who knows his bible) caught it and posted it to Facebook for posterity with a plea for more bible education in Israeli schools. For the Hebrew-impaired, the Labor party MK's tweet says the following:
"Our history began from Jerusalem" said [Education Minister Naftali] Bennett this morning. Forgive the pettiness, but the Education Minister should know that according to the Torah, we came here from Egypt. 

I guess Shaffir's 'education' excluded the book of Genesis....

But, the Jewish *nation* was formed in Egypt, and we did come to the land of Israel from there. It seems to me to be perfectly reasonable assertion.
Bennet, meanwhile, presumably was referring to King David and the first (unbroken) monarchy.
If you want to talk about before the Egyptian exile, the tribe of Israel was centered in Hebron, Beer Sheva, and other places, but not Jerusalem.
Now, if Shaffir was trying to claim our nation's origin was Egyptian, then she's a fool. But she's still right that Jerusalem isn't our place of origin.
