Incitement Continues in the Palestinian Press

On November 19, 1998, the Palestinian Authority published an injunction to prevent incitement, as instructed in the 'Wye Agreement.’

The Islamic nations believe in the path of Allah and are confident in his victory, and the rulers will not be able to convince their people that Israel represents a permanent, and everlasting reality.
