Israel's amb. to the UN claims Palestinian school children are being "taught to hate & Shown How To Stab A Jew".
Israel's ambassador to the UN claims Palestinian school children are being "taught to hate & Shown How To Stab A Jew". (SkyN).
Palestinian children are being taught how to stab a Jewish person as part of their being "brainwashed" with "incitement and hate", according to Israel.
Danny Danon, Israel's new ambassador to the United Nations, is urging the Security Council to make a statement against what he described as "the incitement that fuels terror".
His speech comes amid an increase in violence in the Middle East with eight Israelis killed in Palestinian attacks, mostly stabbings, in the past month,
In the same period, 34 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire. Israel has described 17 of those as attackers, while the rest died in clashes with Israeli troops.
During his speech, Mr Danon held up a piece of card with a diagram of a human body entitled "How to Stab a Jew", which he claims is "an example of what Palestinian children are being exposed to day in and day out, in school, after school". Read the full story and see the video here.
