Israeli security officials recently presented the annual “Palestinian Incitement Index,” which includes findings from recent months, during which peace talks have been taking place. The findings demonstrate that incitement against Israel (and Jews as such) is continuing in the state-controlled Palestinian media, and that during the period of negotiations, not only did incitement not decrease, but in certain areas it even increased.

The data suggests that incitement encompasses several main messages:

  • Israel has no right to exist, and Jews have no link to the Holy Land;
  • The Jews are sub-human creatures and must be dealt with accordingly;
  • In principle, all forms of struggle, including terrorism, are legitimate in order to realize the final goal.

Though the documentation on Palestinian incitement was made available to foreign journalists – and subsequently covered even by the New York Times – the Guardian’s Harriet Sherwood, never shy about framing every Israeli announcement on housing tenders across the green line as an obstacle to peace – has not, as of yet, reported on the disturbing findings.

  • Just a passing note: the Palestinian flag on the kotel carries an inscription that reads ha’it al-buraq, namely ‘The Buraq Wall’. Buraq is the mythical winged horse aboard which the prophet Muhammad ascended to heaven, starting from the rock inside the Dome of the Rock (which hadn’t yet been built). There is, of course, no link between that legend and the Kotel, its history, or its archaeology, nor is there any reals link between a mythical horse and the historical Muhammad. It is a transparent attempt to take control, even if it means made-up stories and an attitude of supremacism.

    Well this is typical of the PA which plays a shell game with their opinions, spreads hate but hides behind main stream media as to hide all of their true intentions. Obviously the Guardian is no longer a “News Periodical” but instead is a propaganda weapon for the Palestinian Arabs, the PA, Hamas and their terrorist allies.Really no surprises there. Certainly take into account the bias Harriet Sherwood lives by as her belief is that opinions are real news swaying public opinion. Just like the Nazi’s used!!
