As Israel and the Palestinians prepare to meet with U.S. officials in order to discuss peace, PM Netanyahu took to social media to point out that the Palestinians are not serious about the peace process. Haaretz's Barak Ravid reports that Netanyahu slammed Mahmoud Abbas for "poisoning the minds of Palestinian youth":

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attacked Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Monday, two days before the arrival of U.S. President Donald Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, claiming that he was "poisoning the minds of Palestinian youth" against Israel.

In a series of tweets in English on his Twitter account, Netanyahu referred to the recent naming by the Palestinian Authority of a square in Jenin after Khaled Nazzal, the former head of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine's military wing. Nazzal was behind the Ma'alot massacre in 1974 in which 26 Israelis were killed, including 22 students...

"Palestinian President Abbas tells the world that he educates Palestinian children for peace. That’s a lie," Netanyahu tweeted. "Naming yet another public square for a mass murderer teaches Palestinian youngsters to murder Israelis. That’s the very opposite of peace..."
