“The daily stabbings in Israel”, says Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely, “are a result of young boys & girls who are indoctrinated from an early age via the Palestinian education system & through social media.”
“The motivation of Children terror comes primarily from social network incitement; this is Israel’s new war.” As part of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ campaign against online incitement, Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely met with YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki and with Jennifer Downes, Director of Public Policy at Google at the company’s Silicon Valley offices.
In the meetings, Hotovely raised the problem of incitement which goads small children to go out and stab innocents: “The daily stabbings in Israel, said Hotovely, “are a result of young boys and girls who are indoctrinated from an early age via the Palestinian education system and through social media. We are engaged daily in confronting incitement to violence, a task which can benefit greatly from the cooperation of those companies that are involved in social media.”
Following the meeting, it was agreed to establish a mechanism to monitor online materials that incite to violence and to assist in preventing their distribution.
