UN Panel Calls on Palestinians to Halt Hate Speech Against Israelis – Yossi Lempkowicz
The UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) in Geneva said in a report released Thursday that it was “concerned about statements by Palestinian officials, as well as in school textbooks, that promote hate speech against Israelis.” The panel called on the Palestinians “ťto stop hate speech and incitement to violence that fuels anti-Semitism” and to “remove any derogatory comments and images from school curricula and textbooks that perpetuate prejudices and hatred.”
In addition, the panel found that Palestinian laws and policies failed to implement UN treaties on racism, or to properly investigate complaints for acts of racial discrimination. (European Jewish Press)
