President Jonathan Arkush has responded to a spate of stabbings by Palestinians against Israelis over the past week. He said “The Board utterly condemns the sharp surge in violence perpetrated by Palestinians towards Israeli citizens in the past week. The failure of the Palestinian Authority to condemn these acts of murder is nothing short of disgraceful. We also call on the media to responsibly report on these cases. Headlines which imply that violent Palestinians are victims are unacceptable and untruthful. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those so senselessly taken.”
