Speaking to followers gathered at a Yeshiva in the Old City of Jerusalem, Sanhedrin head Rabbi Yisrael Ariel called for conquest of all territory eastwards up to and including Iran, destroying all mosques and churches and forcing all non-Jews to choose between death or renouncing their religions.

New textbook for settler children: `There`s no such thing as Palestine`Elisha Ben Kimon - Y-net - Settler spokesperson Yigal Dakmoni revealed that adult West Bank settlers are afraid that their children might be "misled by propaganda disseminated by left-wing organizations".
