'Palestinian' incitement worse than ever
Strategic Affairs Ministry Director General Yossi Kupperwasser told the cabinet on Sunday that 'Palestinian' incitement - as reflected in the incitement index
- is worse than ever
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

Palestinians; the demonization of Jews and Zionists in general, and
Israelis and settlers in particular; and that all forms of struggle,
including, the use of terrorism, are legitimate.

shows the degree to which the narrative that all of Israel will restored
to Palestinians has traction. He brought a number of example of maps in
school books and on the Fatah facebook page that do not show a state of
Israel in any borders to illustrate this point.
As evidence of
the demonization and de-humanization of Israelis, the power-point
presentation included a quote from Abbas speech to the UN on Thursday in
which he said that the creation of Israel represented "one of the most
dreadful campaigns of ethnic cleansing and dispossession in modern
