Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely took the Palestinian Authority to task for incitement a day after 4,000 dolls encouraging terrorism against Israelis were seized in Haifa. 

The dolls, dressed up as terrorists with keffiyahs and carrying rocks, were en route to the Palestinian Authority when they were seized. 

"These dolls are being used in order to poison the minds of the young children in the Palestinian Authority," Hotovely charged in an English-language video released Wednesday. 

"The international community has a huge responsibility in stopping [this incitement to violence]," she continued. "A third of the Palestinian's Authority's budget comes from international donations. You must change the educational system in the Palestinian Authority."

"This incitement to terrorism, violence and hatred must be changed."
