    There was no mention about what incitement they were talking about. Also there was no mention as to what anti-Israel and anti-Semitic narratives they were talking about. This is very vague and meaningless. Where are the details?

    Who is behind the Taxpayers' Alliance?

    Who is behind the Taxpayers' Alliance? | Politics | The Guardian

    Who really wrote this piece? The translations were provided by PMW an arm of Israeli propaganda.

    PMW - Palwatch.org

    Who’s who at PMW
    Itamar Marcus, Director
    Itamar Marcus, Founder and Director of Palestinian Media Watch, is one of the foremost authorities on Palestinian ideology and policy. Mr. Marcus was appointed by the Israel Government to represent Israel in negotiations with the Palestinian Authority on Incitement.

    This looks more like a hit piece than actual reporting.

    It is undoubted that Palestinian education demonizes Israel and teaches that Jews are the source of all problems.
    It is undoubted that the PA gets unprecedented funding from the EU.

    So which part of the report is false?

    Itamar Marcus (just in case someone out there doesn't know) is an extremist Israeli settler who is on a mission to convince the world that Palestinians are a subhuman death cult who only produce children in order to indoctrinate them to become suicide bombers.

    Marcus lives in the illegal squatter camp of Efrat (established in 1980 deep in the Palestinian West Bank between Bethlehem and Hebron.) His goal is to inflame Islamophobia in the Western world, to demonize and delegitimatize Muslims in general and Palestinians in particular.

    Marcus is the hate-monger behind both "Palestinian Media Watch" and the "Center for Monitoring the Impact of Peace," his personal anti-Palestinian propaganda factories. Marcus is also the featured looney-tune in such Islamophobic garbage as “Obsession: Radical Islam’s War with the West.”

    Just for kicks, let's look at what Israeli textbooks teach their kids, according to Israeli scholars:

    Israeli writer/researcher Adir Cohen, in his book "Ugly Face in the Mirror," examines the nature of children's upbringing in Israel.

    As far as the "cancer" quote, I'd like to see it in the original Arabic. I suspect he may have been referring to the illegal Israeli settlements, but it's hard to say without the actual quote. Even so, it wouldn't be without precedent:

    And of course in 2001, Rehavam Zeevi, Israel’s "Minister of Tourism,” referred to Palestinians working or living illegally in Israel as “lice” and a “cancer.”

    (Zeevi was the founder of the extremist Moledet party, which enthusiastically advocated the expulsion of all Arabs living in the West Bank and Gaza. Zeevi urged that this could be easily accomplished by such various means as military force, or cutting electricity and water to force Palestinians to leave their land... he called this “volunteer” transfer.)

    On the "Funding Hate Proof" from the TPA

    http://tpa.typepad.com/home/files/funding_hate_proof6_cors.pdf

    On page 24 they state: Exhibit A1: Palestinian Authority map of Palestine without Israel

    The Palestinian Authority may be pursuing peace at the negotiating table but if they continue to use their education system to teach hate to future generations of Palestinians they sow the seeds of future conflict. At the same time they promote the view, among Palestinians, that Israel’s existence is not a given. A map of Israel and Palestine with the entire area covered in the Palestinian flag was shown on Palestinian Authority TV the very day after the leadership pledged to negotiate towards a peaceful settlement by the end of next year at the Annapolis peace conference.

    By teaching hate they mean that Palestine displays their flag. The flag they display is the actual map of Palestine within its legal borders. Why would this be considered teaching hate? PMW has a whole page demonizing Palestine for actually telling the truth.

    Since Israel has no borders, they just use Palestine's.
