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.
