Palestinians Continue to Flout Obama’s Demand to Stop Inciting


PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas

President Obama demanded on July 6, 2010 that the Palestinian Authority cease inciting the populace against Israel and Jews:

I think it’s very important that the Palestinians not look for excuses for incitement; that they are not engaging in provocative language; that at the international level, they are maintaining a constructive talk, as opposed to looking for opportunities to embarrass Israel. (From the President's July 6, 2010 press conference held jointly with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu).

But Palestinian incitement continues unabated, with Palestinian Authority media, mosques and government officials all getting in on the act to preach hatred against Israel and Jews. For example:

Palestinian Authority newspaper, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, announces that a summer camp for young leaders has been named after terrorist Dalal Mughrabi who led a 1978 bus hijacking in which 37 Israeli civilians, 12 of them children, were killed. The newspaper reports that the camp "aims at training young leaders" in the Bethlehem area. The camp’s name is “Shahida (Martyr) Dalal Mughrabi summer camp” (reported by Palestinian Media Watch).

• On Al Manar TV, PA cabinet minister Muhammad Ishtayeh, minister for public works and housing, praises mastermind of Munich Olympics terror Attack and promises violence against Israel (reported by Middle East Media Research Institute).

• Child on PA TV: “[W]e will be combatants … against the Israelis” (reported by Palestinian Media Watch).

• PA TV children’s program, Chicks, shows a map that includes all of Israel but the entire area of Israel is labeled only as Palestine (reported by Palestinian Media Watch).

Why has this not been reported by the mainstream media?
