Did Israeli Textbook Report Leave Out PA Incitement?

The Government Press Office in conjunction with the Ministry of Strategic Affairs will hold a press conference on the new report on Israeli and Palestinian Authority textbooks. The project instituted by the Council of Religious Institutions of the Holy Land released their findings this week indicating that they found that PA textbooks omitted an Israeli narrative and that Israeli textbooks omitted a PA narrative. 
Yossi Kuperwasser,  the Director General of the Strategic Affairs Ministry will present data that the report may have omitted evidence of blatant anti-Semitic bias and incitement to violence in certain PA textbooks. The press briefing will take place Tuesday February 5th at the Government Press Office headquarters at the Jerusalem Technology Park.
