Communicated by the Strategic Affairs and Public Diplomacy Ministry) At the weekly Cabinet meeting today (Sunday, 17 January 2016), Strategic Affairs and Public Diplomacy Minister Gilad Erdan presented ministers with the index of incitement in the Palestinian Authority.
The findings of the index indicate a rise in incitement in the Palestinian Authority, sponsored by the leadership and religious figures, in the institutions of formal education and massive exposure of the culture of incitement to the global community. Ministers were presented with examples from children's and youth programs on the official Palestinian Authority television channel featuring - inter alia - children calling for the kill of Jews, incitement by Palestinian Authority Chairman Abu Mazen encouraging terrorism, and incitement in new media. Strategic Affairs and Public Diplomacy Ministry Director General Sima Vaknin noted that approximately 37% of terrorists are under 20, 39% are 21-25 and the remaining 24% are over 26.
