(JNS.org) “Incitement and peace cannot coexist,” wrote Israeli Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu in a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry on Saturday
night, ahead of the resumption of Israeli-Palestinian conflict negotiations
Netanyahu’s letter, according to Israel
Hayom, referred to a statement made by Palestinian Authority President
Mahmoud Abbas July 29 that a future Palestinian state “would not see the presence
of a single Israeli–civilian or soldier.”
Additionally, Palestinian Authority TV (PA TV) recently offered $100
prizes in man-on-the-street interviews with Palestinians who identified Israeli
territory as part of “Palestine,” Palestinian Media Watch reported.
“Rather than educate the next generation of Palestinians to live in
peace with Israel, this hate education lays the ground for continued violence,
terror and conflict,” Netanyahu’s letter to Kerry stated, according to Israel Hayom.
