Insights Into West Bank Mosque Incites

CNN looks into PA efforts to rein in the invective and incitement of Palestinian preachers. I credit reporter Kevin Flowers for drawing attention to the problem, but there's a nuance he doesn't make clear enough.

As the Washington Post reported a month ago, the PA crackdown is more about undercutting Hamas influence over West Bank mosques than about messages like Destroy Israel for Allah. Watch and judge for yourself.

Sheikh Hamed Bitawi, one cleric banned from preaching, told Flowers "Myself and the other imams, we incite against the Israeli occupation."
