( “Incitement and peace cannot coexist,” wrote Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry on Saturday night, ahead of the resumption of Israeli-Palestinian conflict negotiations this week.

Netanyahu’s letter, according to Israel Hayom, referred to a statement made by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas July 29 that a future Palestinian state “would not see the presence of a single Israeli—civilian or soldier.”

Additionally, Palestinian Authority TV (PA TV) recently offered $100 prizes in man-on-the-street interviews with Palestinians who identified Israeli territory as part of “Palestine,” Palestinian Media Watch reported.

“Rather than educate the next generation of Palestinians to live in peace with Israel, this hate education lays the ground for continued violence, terror and conflict,” Netanyahu’s letter to Kerry stated, according to Israel Hayom.
