Incitement against Israel in PA is bad, getting worse

Incitement and inflammatory language against Israel in the Palestinian Authority is at the worst level since Jerusalem began systematically measuring it in 2009, Strategic Affairs Minister Yossi Kuperwasser told the cabinet Sunday.

Kuperwasser was asked to give a briefing on the "incitement index" following Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's speech to the UN General Assembly on Thursday. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu termed that speech, where Abbas painted Israel in demonic colors, as "dripping with poison."

Commenting after Kuperwasser presented his quarterly findings, Netanyahu said "this is additional proof that we are not talking about a disagreement over territory, rather about the rejection of Israel's existence."
