State Department Report Whitewashes Palestinian Incitement

(JNS-Algemeiner) Rafael Medoff - The U.S. State Department, in its annual assessment of global terrorism for 2016, is whitewashing the Palestinian Authority's incitement to violence, former Israeli diplomats have said. "The PA has taken significant steps during President Abbas' tenure to ensure that official institutions in the West Bank under its control do not create or disseminate content that incites violence," the State Department report said. Amb. Alan Baker, who served as deputy director-general of the Israeli Foreign Ministry, said not only has the PA failed to take "significant steps" against incitement, but "the opposite is the case - their own actions, statements and publications, naming streets and squares after terrorists, formally paying fees to terrorist families, all point to a distinctive step backwards in violation of Palestinian commitments pursuant to the Oslo Accords."
