World complains about every apartment built in Israel but is silent on 'Palestinian' incitement

After a translation showed that 'Palestinian' radio told its listeners ten days ago that 'one day there will be no Israel,' Prime Minister Netanyahu's spokesman Mark Regev said on Monday that the world complains about every announcement of 'settlement' construction, but has nothing to say about 'Palestinian' incitement.
Regev’s comments, just days before a second round of peace talks expected in Jericho, were in response to comments made by an announcer on the Palestinian Authority’s official Voice of Palestine, who said that “one day” there will be no Israel and “Palestine will be Palestine again.”
Regev also cited a drama running on Palestinian television which he said showed Palestinians – after a Hamas-Fatah reconciliation – attacking a Jew and cutting off his ear-locks. “While this incitement is happening, we hear a deafening silence from the international community,” he said.
“When Israel builds in areas which everyone understands will remain part of Israel in a final-status agreement, this is somehow perceived as a problem for peace. When Palestinians indoctrinate their people with hatred for Israel, and thereby directly undermine reconciliation, this is ignored.
“What is required of leadership at this time is to prepare the public for respect and reconciliation. But what we are seeing from the Palestinians is the opposite: continued demonization, stress on maximalist goals and that Israel is an illegitimate creation that will eventually disappear.”
The United States has responded by making another donation of $148 million to the 'Palestinian Authority' on behalf of the American taxpayer. And there are $4 billion more where that came from.
The aid was delivered “to help the Palestinian Authority avert a budget crisis and to support US efforts to achieve a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict,” a US official told The Jerusalem Post.
In his memorandum to Secretary of State John Kerry issuing the waiver of restriction of funds, President Barack Obama said that the aid “is important to the national security interests of the Unites States.”
The waiver is in line with previous waivers exercised by this and previous administrations, the official said.
“Direct budget support to the PA is the most immediate and efficient means of helping the PA maintain and build the foundations of a viable, peaceful Palestinian state,” the official added.
“There has been a recurring budget crisis in the PA, year in and year out, for as long as anyone can remember,” said David Pollock, a senior fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. “But even though the PA is short of cash, the Palestinian economy in the West Bank is showing pretty good signs of life.”
Roughly half of the PA budget is spent on Gaza, which provides the government with little return but is required to continue its linkage with the troubled Palestinian strip. The $148 million will likely be spent on PA salaries, Pollock said.
In other words, it's going to be spent on terrorists in Israeli prisons, their families, and the families of 'martyrs.' And of course, to Hamas.

What could go wrong?
