PM to UN Chief: Don't Fund Incitement

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told visiting Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon of the United Nations Friday that he hopes UN funds are not used as an instrument for Palestinian Authority incitement against Israelis.

Referring to recent Palestinian Authority descriptions of Jews, he said it's very difficult to make peace when Jews are portrayed as pigs and monkeys. The portrayals were contained in texts potentially funded by the UN through the educational arm of its Relief and Works Agency in Judea and Samaria (Shomron).
