Western funding
US funds terror and hate promotion
Even though western powers have requested that their funding be used for non-terrorism related purposes, any financial assistance given to the Palestinian Authority frees up other funds to be used for supporting terror and paying terrorist salaries, as Palestinian Media Watch has documented. Therefore, any financial assistance given to the PA that is not conditioned on the cessation of incitement indirectly funds terror and hate promotion.
US Congress blocks $159 million in aid to the PA  
Source: Ma’an, independent Palestinian news agency, Mar. 20, 2016
Headline: "US Congress blocks $159 million in aid to PA"
"Members of the United States Congress are delaying a payment of $159 million in aid allocated for the Palestinian Authority in effort to pressure the PA to relaunch negotiations with Israel, the PLO ambassador to Washington said Saturday.
Maen Erekat confirmed earlier reports that the US Congress was blocking the payment at the request of House Republican Kay Granger, the Chairwoman of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on State-Foreign Operations, under the pretext that the PA supports 'terrorism.' The Obama administration allocated $440 million in aid to Palestinians for 2015, including $131 million for economic and development projects by USAID and $70 million for PA agencies and security agencies, while $80 million in aid was deducted following Israeli criticism of 'incitement' by the PA last October. Erekat added that some 'pro-Israel' Congress members are continuing to pressure the PA to relaunch diplomatic negotiations with Israel, and prevent Palestinians from joining international organizations and conventions."

PA asks Congress to continue funding, after Congress members call on Obama to terminate funding to Fatah-Hamas unity government 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, June 18, 2014
     “The [Palestinian] government called on American Congress members to refrain from becoming drawn into the Israeli government’s incitement and false claims against our people, its leadership and government, especially after 88 American Congress members, from [both] the Republican and Democratic parties, called on US President Barack Obama to stop transferring American aid money to the PA in reaction to the establishment of the National [Fatah-Hamas] Reconciliation Government.”
PLO member: Congress members who called to stop aid following unity government between Fatah and Hamas “are more ‎extreme than the Israeli right”  
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, June 14, 2014
     “Eighty-eight US Parliament (i.e., Congress) members from the Republican and Democratic parties have demanded that US President Barack Obama halt the transfer of US aid money to the PA in response to the formation of the [Fatah-Hamas] national unity government. An open letter to Obama from the Congress members said that ‘the establishment of the unity government has damaged Congressional support for the transfer of financial aid to the PA, and necessitates the exertion of pressure on Mahmoud Abbas to end his alliance with Hamas and return to the negotiating table.’ [translation of Arabic paraphrase]
In response to the Congress members’ letter, PLO Executive Committee Member Dr. Hanan Ashrawi said that ‘these are means of [exerting] pressure that constitute the power supporting Zionism and Israel, as they are even more extremist than the Israeli right and Benjamin Netanyahu.’ In a statement, Ashrawi mused: ‘If the Israeli government transferred the tax money despite its attempt to boycott the Palestinian consensus government (In accordance with the Oslo Accords, Israel collects taxes on behalf of the Palestinian Authority and transfers the money to the PA), and [if it] understood that damaging the PA and the government would have dangerous consequences, how can these [people] demand the cessation of aid to the Palestinian government?’ Ashrawi emphasized that the letter’s signatories are trying to tell Israel that they are more Zionist than the Israelis themselves – even though the US administration understands that the Palestinian government is a government of independent [professionals], with no members from Hamas or any other faction – which is why it [the US] took no steps to punish it.”
Student group at USAID-funded Palestinian university posts antisemitic picture 
Source: Facebook, An-Najah National University’s ‎Islamic student group, Mar. 30, 2014


The Facebook page of the National University’s Islamic student group of An-Najah University in ‎Nablus, a school funded by USAID, called for murder of Jews posting this picture ‎of a religious Jews hiding in fear and the Islamic source from the Hadith that the PA interprets as ‎anticipating the genocide of Jews.
Tree:
“O Muslim, O servant of Allah, there is a ‎Jew behind me – come kill him.”‎

Note: The Islamic belief that Jews will be killed ‎by Muslims as a precursor to the Resurrection ‎appears in the Hadith (sayings and practices ‎attributed to Islam's Prophet Muhammad).This ‎Islamic tradition asserts that as the killing of ‎Jews progresses, Jews will hide behind ‎stones and trees, but they will expose the ‎Jews and call out: "Oh Muslim, servant of ‎Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill ‎him." Only one tree, called the Gharqad, will ‎hide the Jews from the Muslims.

PA opposes US budget committee's decision to condition US aid to PA on cessation of incitement

     “The [PA] government has expressed its opposition to the US Congress budget committee’s [decision] to condition its support of the law for the continuation of American aid to the PA on the cessation of PA incitement against Israel, and to make the new American aid law contingent on a special, documented report, to be submitted to the committee, confirming that incitement against Israel has decreased.
The government emphasized that the true incitement is the Israeli government’s insistence on breaking international humanitarian laws and on violating international institution [decisions] and human rights.”
PA-funded Prisoners' Club: Israelis taught international donors everything about PA salaries for prisoners 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Feb. 17, 2014
Chairman of the Prisoners' Club, Qadura Fares:
     "Our second message is directed to the EU, international organizations and to the UN. They know by heart what the Israelis taught them. This is a disgrace. The Israelis (i.e., PMW reports) taught them and explained to them that the PA pays such and such canteen [amount] and pays such and such a salary to a prisoner [imprisoned] four years... When we meet with European, American or UN officials they question us. They know the stuff by heart because the Israelis taught them and explained to them that the PA supports -- according to Liberman's and Netanyahu's claims -- so-called "terrorists"... Minister [of Prisoners' Affairs] Issa Karake remembers that the British Minister of [International Relations and] Cooperation asked us about the Dadash company -- the Dadash company that operates the canteens. Meaning, they know all these facts by heart."

Guest on PA TV blames US for terror groups in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Aug. 31, 2013
PA TV program From the Interior episode about the American attack in Syria.
Director of the Emil Touma Institute for Palestinian and Israeli studies and former Israeli Arab Parliament Member Issam Makhoul:

     “[We now see in Syria] the terror created by the USA in other parts of the world, and this is why I speak of a conspiracy, in Afghanistan (i.e., Al-Qaeda) for instance, and its off-shoots, the Jabhat al-Nusra [group] in Iraq. There was no Jabhat al-Nusra before Iraq was occupied by America and dismantled. There were no terror groups in Libya connected with Al-Qaeda, who now control oil, privatize oil and so on. [There were no] gangs, before NATO’s intervention in Libya. Is there any more democracy in Libya now? Is there any more security? Are Libyan lives better protected? This is why we are speaking about imperialist aggression…
If they really will use this (Syria’s use of chemical weapons) as an excuse to attack, then whoever carries out the attack will be the one responsible for the use of chemical weapons.”

Note: The speaker seems to think that since Syrian leader Assad did not gain anything by using chemical weapons, and since the use of them provided the US with an excuse to attack Syria, the use of chemical weapons must have been orchestrated by the US in the first place, so that it could provide itself with an excuse to attack Syria.

     "Public figures and the [Armed] Factions in Yaabid decided to name one of the schools in the municipality and its most important street after Saddam to immortalize his memory and to emphasize the values of Arabness and Jihad, which he represented.”
