During U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s shuttle diplomacy trip to the Middle East last week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu played a controversial recording for the diplomat,Israel’s Walla News reported.
The footage was from a classroom in Balata, near Nablus, and showed the teacher indoctrinating the students on “martyrdom” and echoing the claim that all of Israel belongs to Arabs. “Palestine is an Arab land from the River to the Sea,” she is seen saying. The phrase was repeated by the schoolchildren.
On the the 75th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the night of “broken glass” that signaled the start of the Holocaust, this weekend, Netanyahu referred to the issue of Palestinian Authority indoctrination again, telling his cabinet, “It is very disturbing that precisely now we are witness to the phenomenon of swastikas and Nazi-style salutes on Palestinian networks,” Netanyahu said. “This is a direct result of the continued wild incitement against the State of Israel. This is not the way to achieve peace.”
