The European Union issued on Thursday a strong condemnation of the Palestinian incitement against Israel in school textbooks.

The European Parliament, which is generally pro-Palestinian in its resolutions, published the results of its vote on whether to condemn the Palestinians on Thursday, with surprising figures: 402 were in favor, compared to 263 who voted against the measure, and 13 who abstained.

The measure may suggest that the MEPs were affected by the Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School Education (IMPACT-SE) and other organizations, which have over the past several years taken pains to show just how common spread the anti-Israel incitement is in Palestinian Authority schools.

The MEPs also voiced concern over the use of European taxpayer’s money to fund programs in Palestinian schools because of its potential misuse to promote terrorism.
