Everytime I think I can no longer be shocked by such state sanctioned hate, by either Hamas or the PA, I come across something that proves my assumption wrong. I simply don’t know how any serious journalist can talk about impediments to the “peace process” without reporting on such vile commentary by official Palestinian TV. Can it reasonably be argued that telling Palestinian children that “Jews are our enemies” is not anti-Semitic but, rather, merely anti-Zionist?
Further, given the Guardian’s obsession with Israel – and their talent at reporting on every imaginable Israeli sin (real and, mostly, imagined), I’d like to offer a challenge to our loyal CiF Watch readers. Can someone find essays published at CiF over the past few years which reports on such officially state-sanctioned anti-Semitic incitement, by the Palestinian Authority, in the context of the “peace process”? If so, please comment below.

Host: “Who put him in prison? Who is it that put him in prison?”
Boy: “The Jews.”
Host: “The Jews are our enemies, right?”
