JERUSALEM, Israel -- U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is pushing Middle East peace, but according to a new report released by the Israeli government, Palestinian leaders are spreading a different message to their own people.
The annual Palestinian Incitement Index exposes consistent examples of the Palestinian Authority urging its citizens to abandon peace in favor of hate.
"The main message of this incitement on a daily basis that is projected and transmitted on a daily basis is that sooner or later Israel should be eliminated," Intelligence Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz said.
The messages contain four main themes:
. Israel has no right to exist.
. Its disappearance is unavoidable and should be expected soon.
. Jews are sub-human creatures and must be dealt with accordingly.
. All forms of struggle, including terrorism, are legitimate in order to realize the final goal.
One example features a young Palestinian girl singing, "Oh you who murdered Allah's pious prophets, oh you who were brought up on spilling blood. You have been condemned to humiliation and hardship - oh sons of Zion, oh most evil among creations, oh barbaric monkeys, wretched pigs."
Another video shows Palestinian children shouting, "Lift your hand. Raise your voice. This Zionist must die."
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' web page says "Jesus was a Palestinian who was crucified by the Jews" and called Jesus a "Palestinian messenger."
The official P.A. school Facebook page quotes Hitler.
All these examples have one thing in common: They are directed toward young Palestinians.
"As a matter of fact, a Palestinian child from the day he is born until the day his mind is already shaped is going through the brainwashing, this indoctrination, this genocidal indoctrination day in and day out," Yossi Kuperwasser, director general of the Israeli Ministry of Strategic Affairs, explained.
"There's no other think," he continued. "It's not competing with other messages. These are the only messages he gets."
Ironically, Palestinian incitement increased during the latest round of peace negotiations by Kerry.
"This is a major obstacle to peace if what we are talking about is not just a piece of paper but a real genuine peace," Steinitz said.
