Israel supports Palestinian incitement !!!!!
By Ted Belman
Incitement is a government tool to ready their subjects and the world for an intended war. Incitement is particularly employed by the PA, Hamas and UNRWA to instill and maintain a hatred of Jews/Israelis. It contains a two-pronged attack. It promotes grievances, the Jews stole our land and are oppressing us, and it demonizes Jews, the Jews are Nazis, sons of apes and pigs, drink our blood, steal our organs, etc. The grievances justify going to war against Israel and the demonization justifies a second holocaust.
So why then is Israel paying lip service to it’s cessation and worse, actively lobbying the US and Canada, inter alia, against withholding funds to the PA, which gives some of the money to Hamas, and UNRWA.
Maayana Miskin report: Bibi Sought Support for PA Hate Education
Israel’s leaders may be among those making it possible for the Palestinian Authority to teach hate and violence to a new generation of children, according to new findings from veteran investigative reporter David Bedein.
[..] Officials in the White House explained that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu had asked the U.S. to continue providing aid to the PA, including to PA schools and to UNRWA, one of the primary sources of incitement. “I could hardly believe my ears,” Bedein told Arutz Sheva.
“The state of Israel continues to side with a continuation of US funding for the UNRWA education system without attaching any conditions, that it cease calling for the destruction of Israel in its schoolbooks.”
Maayana Miskin now repots ‘Bibi Pushing US to Fund Hamas Schools’
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, not the Obama administration, is behind a push to continue U.S. funding for Hamas-linked schools in Gaza, says investigative journalist David Bedein, head of Israel Resource Review.
“The aid is being renewed not due to the policy of the Obama administration or a decision from Congress, as has been reported in the Israeli media, but at the initiative of Israel’s government,” he declared.
In an interview with Arutz Sheva, Bedein explained that he has spoken to many members of Congress, and has repeatedly been told that they agree U.S. aid should not go to Gaza as long as incitement against Israel continues – but that Israel’s government has been pressuring them to send it anyway.
“We showed them proof of incitement in schools and in the media, of the cooperation between UNRWA and Hamas,” Bedein recalled. “But a very strong Israeli lobby pushed to have aid reinstated unconditionally.”
In the UNRWA school system, he noted, roughly 90% of teachers are affiliated with Hamas.
Now here’s the kicker.
The reason Israel undermines attempts to pressure UNRWA, Bedein said, is “a clear financial conflict of interest.” Gaza is a major market for Israeli products, and Israeli firms are heavily involved in projects involving the Palestinian Authority, he explained.
Moshe Dann asks,When Will Israel’s Foreign Ministry Stop Supporting UNRWA?
As long as Israel’s own Ministry of Foreign Affairs continues to support the United Nations agency that aids Palestinian Authority Arabs, the U.S. and Canada are not going to cease funding UNRWA’s activities.
Most recently Ros-Lehtinen Caves on PA Funds
Ros-Lehtinen, chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, informed the Obama administration she would release $50 million in economic support funds for the Palestinian Security Forces and $148 million in other assistance.
Ros-Lehtinen cited the administration’s certification that payment of the funds were in the ‘national security interests of the United States’ as well as word that the government of Israel did not object to the assistance.
Pres G W Bush in his 2002 speech in support of Palestinian statehood, said
- I’ve said in the past that nations are either with us or against us in the war on terror. To be counted on the side of peace, nations must act.
Every leader actually committed to peace will end incitement to violence in official media, and publicly denounce homicide bombings. Every nation actually committed to peace will stop the flow of money, equipment and recruits to terrorist groups seeking the destruction of Israel – including Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and Hizbullah. Every nation actually committed to peace must block the shipment of Iranian supplies to these groups, and oppose regimes that promote terror, like Iraq. And Syria must choose the right side in the war on terror by closing terrorist camps and expelling terrorist organisations.
Leaders who want to be included in the peace process must show by their deeds an undivided support for peace. And as we move toward a peaceful solution, Arab states will be expected to build closer ties of diplomacy and commerce with Israel, leading to full normalisation of relations between Israel and the entire Arab world.
None of this has happened. Quite the contrary. The PA, not to mention Hamas, are fostering a culture of hate rather than peace. The Arab states for their part haven’t moved an inch even to help Obama kick state the negotiations.
Now that “Palestine” has been accepted as a member of UNESCO we should be demanding that it be forced to comply with its principles.
1) This would entail the PA’s removal of incitement to hate from all text books; the establishment of freedom of expression and information; the provision of free and full access to education for women (under UNESCO’s Education For All programme) and the recognition and protection of Jewish and Christian heritage sites.
2) PA reconciliation with Hamas must be conditioned upon the latter’s acceptance of the three EU principles: acceptance of Israel, acceptance of prior agreements and a commitment to non-violence. And finally, the probation must require zero tolerance of terrorism and a return to bilateral peace negotiations without preconditions.
So I ask, why isn’t the Israeli government demanding an end to incitement just as vigorously as it is demanding to be recognized as a Jewish State. Why is it supporting the flow of money which sustains this incitement?
