Ya'alon: Palestinian Education System Preventing Real Peace

While Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu tied the recent fatal terror attack at a Jerusalm light rail station to inciteful statements by PA Chairman Abu Mazen, Defense Minister Ya'alon blamed it and other terror on the Palestinian educational system as a whole.

Speaking in Washington DC, Ya'alon said: "Why did this happen? It happened because in PA preschools, children as young as three are taught, for example, to wear an explosive belt in order to kill Jews. As long as the situation is like this, and young Palestinians are taught to kill Jews, there will not be real peace here."

Vayigash commentary: This being the case, why is the Israeli goverment not working harder to try to end the incitement and hate education in Palestinian society?
