We are aware of these reports, and have asked officials at the British Consulate in Jerusalem to look into them. We deplore incitement on both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, including any comments or approaches that could encourage violence or stir up hatred and prejudice in a region that needs a culture of peace and mutual respect. We do not hesitate to raise these issues as necessary. Most recently we raised the issue of incitement with Palestinian Prime Minister Fayyad's office in January 2013.
