Ya'alon: Palestinians must stop incitement, educate for peace instead

The Palestinian Authority must stop its incitement against Israel and educate its youth for peace, Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon said on Sunday.

"The first stage of the road map, that obligates the PA to stop the incitement and to educate for peace, did not happen. [former prime minister] Yitzhak Rabin demanded in Oslo that the Palestinian treaty is also changed, and it wasn't changed to this very day either," Ya'alon said.

The Palestinians' refusal to recognize Israel as a Jewish state "is the heart of the conflict," Ya'alon said. "It all starts with education - without education, no technology can help."

"The Palestinians receive money from states that donate to educational institutes in the PA, and still teach incitement and racism based on Adolf Hitler quotes. They claim there is no Jewish people," he added.
