“The Palestinian Authority continues to promote incitement... and a culture of hate, terror, and nonacceptance toward Israelis and Jews,” government officials told foreign journalists on Tuesday.

The officials were beginning a press offensive aimed at discrediting an American- funded study that asserted that instances of demonization and dehumanization of Jews in Palestinian school books are “rare.”

Yosef Kuperwasser, the deputy director-general of the Strategic Affairs Ministry, presented Israel’s critique of the report during a briefing held for foreign correspondents at the Government Press Office in Jerusalem.

He accused Wexler of trying to “whitewash the Palestinian books,” and said that the professor had “attempted to create an artificial balance” between Israeli and Palestinian Authority texts.
