Rudeness to Palestinians? It's about incitement Categories: Israel, Palestinians, Updates     Author: Ahron Shapiro

As anyone who regularly reads AIJAC's blogs would be aware, incitement and glorification of terrorism to Palestinian society - including and especially children - is unfortunately a way of life in the Palestinian Authority and Gaza (see here, here and here). For the most part, this incitement is un

Diplomacy of Destruction Categories: Israel, Palestinians     Author: Eran Lerman
