The Palestinian Authority's new school curriculum infuses antisemitism in young minds and glorifies jihad terrorism, reveals a recently released report by IMPACT-se, an NGO that monitors school textbooks around the world. The report, which analyzed 222 textbooks for the 2020-21 academic year, found that they "remain openly antisemitic and continue to encourage violence, jihad and martyrdom."

The news of Serbia and Muslim-majority Kosovo opening their embassies in Jerusalem has triggered a new wave of anger within the Palestinian leadership. The Balkan nations moving diplomatic missions to the Holy City is an act of "unjust aggression against the Palestinian people,” the Palestinian Authority said in an official statement.

Last week The Jerusalem Post reported that a recent study of Palestinian Authority textbooks found that the ones used in Palestinian schools are preparing students "for a continuous and long-range confrontation against the State of Israel in order to achieve the final goal, which is the establishment of the State of Palestine that will stretch on the entire territory of the Land of Israel."

In April 2020, we published an in-depth investigation: How Anti-Israel Activists Are Hijacking The Coronavirus Crisis And Turning It Against Israel. Our research demonstrated how proponents of the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel have exploited the COVID-19 pandemic: namely, blaming the Jewish state and its supporters for as many aspects of the outbreak as possible. Now, we've taken a closer look at how international Arab, Muslim, and especially Palestinian sources have rhetorically weaponized the virus against Israel. And it's clear that the BDS campaign's appropriation of COVID-19 is only part of a larger effort to fold the pandemic into pre-existing anti-Zionist and anti-Jewish ideology.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced a major policy shift on Monday by declaring that the United States no longer considers Israeli 'settlements' to be illegal under the international law. The statement reverses the U.S. State Department's long-held policy that regarded Israeli 'settlements' in the region of Judea and Samaria, also referred to as the West Bank, "inconsistent with international law."

The head of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for "Palestinian Refugees" (UNRWA) has been suspended amid ongoing investigations into widespread corruption under his watch. Internal investigations "revealed management issues which relate specifically to the (UNRWA) Commissioner-General" Pierre Krahenbuhl, a statement issued by the UN said on Wednesday.

The Palestinian Authority (PA) has banned LGBT activities in the West Bank, launching a search for gay rights activists. The main target of the crackdown is a group called Al-Qaws for Sexual & Gender Diversity in Palestinian Society. The leading Palestinian gay rights group was planning to hold a meeting of its members later this month. "The attack on us is unprecedented," a member of Al-Qaws told The Jerusalem Post. "They are calling us traitors and corrupt people, and many are calling for our execution. We are afraid for our lives."

Yesterday, Israel denied visas for Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, after pressure from Trump, under a law permitting the government to bar entry to advocates of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. The decision kicked off a firestorm, including false accusations by former Democrat Vice Presidential candidate and current Senator Tim Kaine that Israel had imposed a "Muslim ban".
