Mahmoud Abbas should terminate anti-Jewish and anti-Israel sentiment in the Palestinian Authority's education system,  Dr. Yuval Steinitz, Israel's Energy and Water Resources Minister of Israel said Sunday at The Jerusalem Post Annual Conference.

As the situation stands today, Steinitz continued, Palestinian children are taught that Jews are "horrible creatures" and "should be gotten rid of."

Steinitz laid out two conditions that should be met before Israeli-Palestinian peace talks can be restarted. Firstly, that the anti-Jewish and anti-Israel sentiment in the PA education must be terminated, and secondly that Gaza must be demilitarized.
