The US House of Representatives unanimously passed a bipartisan resolution condemning anti-Israel incitement in the Palestinian Authority (PA) Tuesday, JTA reports.
The resolution, entitled House Resolution 293, notes the rampant incitement against Jews and Israelis from PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas, who, “in spite of the Oslo II agreement […] repeatedly describes released Palestinian terrorists as ‘heroes’.”
It also noted the monthly terror salaries the PA pays to terrorists and their families, as well as Abbas’s suggestions that Jews are “defiling” Jerusalem.
