      Israel Complains to UN About PA Leadership's Incitement

      Ron Prosor, Israel's ambassador to the United Nations, lodged a formal protest, Thursday, to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the UN Security Council, demanding immediate condemnation of the terrorism originating in the Palestinian Authority which is sweeping Israel.

      According to the complaint, the terrorism has two things in common. It is intended to harm innocent Israeli citizens and it is a result of rampant incitement sponsored by the PA leadership. Prosor stressed that the complaints did not come out of the blue, noting that the inciteful words are first written in PA textbooks, television and radio programs and by preachers in mosques. He concluded by saying anti-Israel incitement is the central hurdle to peace between Irael and its neighbors.
