JPost op-ed cites PMW in article challenging boycott of Israel on college campuses 

"I suggest you check out Palestinian Media Watch online, to give you an idea of what might be appropriate when making choices about who, and what, to boycott. The leaders of a society daily slandering Jews as “monkeys and pigs”, and calling their little ones to martyr themselves and “spill Jewish blood”, do not need the encouragement of the NUS (National Union of Students, UK university organization for students that is considering boycotting Israel)."

The PMW website also documented that, despite objections from European donor nations, the Abbas government continues to funnel donor funds to convicted terrorists. Celebration of murder and hostility to, even denial of, Israel’s existence are constant traits of Palestinian politics under Abbas." 

Ynet on PMW's report about the PA's abuse of sports 

"Jibril Rajoub, the head of the Palestinian Football Association and the Palestinian Olympic Committee, is ‎using sporting events to glorify terrorists even while seeking to get Israel banned from the international ‎football federation (FIFA), claims a report by the Palestinian Media Watch organization.‎ ‎'The Palestinian Authority's abuse of sports is a concrete example of how the PA chooses to ‎further entrench the conflict rather than work to resolve it,' says PMW.‎"

CAMERA report on Nakba Day cites PMW documentation of PA claiming Israel as "Palestine" 

"The 'moderate' Fatah movement, headed by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas – currently in the tenth year of his four-year presidential term – also continues to deny the very existence of the Jewish state. Last month, Fatah posted on its official Facebook page, 'Palestine means the entire national land, from the [Jordan] River to the [Mediterranean] Sea. The land is for us Palestine.' Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) has documented numerous such declarations in Fatah and PA media, schoolbooks and speeches." 

The Commentator reports on bulletin by “respected watchdog group PMW” on PA ‎antisemitism

Article about Quranic verses on Jews being turned into apes and pigs quotes "the excellent website Palestinian Media Watch"

Palestinians continue to use soccer to glorify terrorists, as documented by PMW 

"One visit to the website of Palestinian Media Watch provides ample evidence of the PA’s manipulation of soccer to promote terror. These are just a few examples from PA-controlled territory in recent years: In the town of Qaffin, a soccer team was named after “the Martyr Ziyad Da’as.” He helped mastermind the 2002 Hadera bat mitzvah massacre in which six people, including African-American band leader Aharon Ellis, were slaughtered. A soccer game in the town of Tzurif began with a moment of silence in honor of Khalil al-Wazir, better known as Abu Jihad, a veteran terrorist leader. He helped planned the 1978 Tel Aviv beach front attack in which Gail Rubin, the niece of a U.S. senator, and 37 bus passengers were massacred..." 

Israel Hayom cites instances of PA incitement exposed by PMW to show PA not serious about peace 

"The Palestinian Media Watch institute exposed that just a week ago, the official television channel ‎of the PA chose to broadcast a clip in which a school pupil calls to kill Jews ('We will fight the ‎Jews, kill them and overcome them.') This, of course, isn't the only incitement.

Fox News article cites "the important NGO, PMW" to show PA not serious about peace

JNS: Obama harps on Netanyahu's pre- and post-election statements but ignores PA incitement documented by PMW 

"The Obama administration frequently does indeed pretend that a foreign leader didn’t say something—when a Palestinian leader is the one who said it. Here are a few examples, just from the past month. (All translations courtesy of Palestinian Media Watch.) On March 8, Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah Party celebrated International Women’s Day by posting on its official website photos and text praising Amna Muna, a Palestinian woman who kidnapped and murdered an Israeli teenager in 2001. Fatah called her 'O glorious one' and declared that she 'is always present in our hearts.' Obama pretended it never happened—after all, how can he admit that his Palestinian allies celebrate murderers?"

An old ‎man told me: If a fish in the sea fights with another fish, I am sure the Jews are behind ‎it.'"  

Arutz 7 article on PA Antisemitism based on PMW documentation 

"The Jews are behind all that is wrong in the world, according to the host of a weekly ‎Palestinian Authority TV program on Islam, cited by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW). ‎Even when fish fight in the sea, 'the Jews are behind it,' said the Muslim preacher and ‎professor of Quranic Studies, Imad Hamato.‎.. Only a month prior to Hamato's statement, Palestinian Media Watch reported on a cleric ‎on official PA TV who taught that Jews are 'apes and pigs' whose 'hearts were sealed ‎by Allah.'"‎ 

IPT News: PMW documents continued PA terror glorification following historic verdic against PA in lawsuit 

"A $655 million judgment levied by an American jury last month for facilitating terrorist attacks a decade ago apparently did little to persuade the Palestinian Authority (PA) to stop glorifying terrorists.

Chicago Sun Times: US verdict holding PA responsible for terror confirms PMW documentation of PA terror promotion 

"The jury verdict in New York affirmed what had been obvious from the start: The ‎wretched campaign of murder and mayhem was supported, aided and abetted by the ‎Palestinian Authority, the governing body for Palestinians in the disputed territories, ‎and its parent organization, the Palestine Liberation Organization... Under the leadership of Abbas, Palestinian official media, schools and society in ‎general continue to glorify terrorists and dream of a Middle East without Israel on the ‎map. A recent Facebook posting by Abbas’ Fatah party advocated rocket attacks and ‎the 'end of Israel,' according to the monitoring group Palestinian Media Watch.‎"

"The director of Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), an Israeli organization dedicated to exposing incitement to violence by official Palestinian outlets and other sources, will be honored with the Abramowitz Israeli Prize for Media Criticism this month." 

PMW awarded Abramowitz Israeli Prize for Media Criticism 

Is Abbas a moderate? Is the PA under his rule a model of moderation whose only interest is to create a Palestinian state within the June 4, 1967 demarcation lines? The media’s job is to collect the necessary evidence and provide it to the public... Unfortunately, our media has consistently shied away from this issue... This is why Israel needs an organization such as Palestinian Media Watch. Its very existence is a stinging rebuke to Israel’s media."  

Times of Israel: PMW exposes that majority of Palestinians believe Israel was behind Paris terror attacks

PA incitement as documented by PMW laid groundwork for violence against Israelis 

"Not a day goes by without another fiery Palestinian Authority incident of incitement (painstakingly documented and broadcast to the world by the good work of Palestinian Media Watch). This hatred has metastasized like a cancer and an entire generation has grown up steeped in it. The horrific result is the vast number of Israelis murdered at the hands of Palestinian terrorists." 

PMW Director Itamar Marcus interviewed by The Jewish Week 

Excerpt of the interview: "The hate messaging in recent years is as vicious — even worse — than the [Yasir] Arafat days. We’ve seen children on Palestinian television repeating a poem that says, 'My enemy Zion is Satan with a tail.' Recently, a boy on Palestinian television read a poem with the words, 'Oh you [Jews] who murdered Allah’s pious prophets, you have been condemned to humiliation and hardship. Sons of Zion, most evil among creation, barbaric apes and wretched pigs.' In the past, they denied Israel’s existence. Now children compare Jews to apes and deny the humanity of Jews."

JNS cites PMW-exposed statements glorifying terrorists made by Abbas' advisor 

"Palestinian Media Watch has compiled a long list of statements by [senior adviser to PA president Abbas and member of the Central Committee of Fatah Sultan Abu Al-] Einen praising terrorists. But the one that attracted the most attention was his public praise, in May 2013, of a terrorist who stabbed to death an Israeli father of five. Einen said the killer was a “heroic fighter” and called for “blessings to the breast that nursed him.” In response, five members of Congress—Republican Ed Royce (Calif.) and Democrats Eliot Engel (N.Y.), Nita Lowey (N.Y.), Ted Deutch (Fla.), and Brad Sherman (Calif.)—wrote to Abbas, demanding that he fire Einen." 

JPost mentions PMW research exposing PA libels about Al-Aqsa Mosque

JNS reports on shocking PA daily cartoon exposed by PMW 

"A leering, hook-nosed Jew, beginning to disrobe, prepares to pounce upon a helpless non-Jewish woman who cowers in fear on the ground before him...

PMW Director Itamar Marcus interviewed in documentary about Israel 

"Itamar Marcus of Palestinian Media Watch... 'One of the goals of Palestinian historians, begun in the 1990s, is to write a history of Palestine that won't allow for the existence of any other people in the land' -- what Victor Davis Hanson of the Hoover Institution calls a 'pseudohistory.' The Palestinian Authority, continues Marcus, 'often cites the persecution of Jews in European countries as proof, not that the Jews were persecuted, but as proof of the Jews' evil nature.'"  

PMW documentation shows that the PA continues to propagate drug libels 

"The Palestinian Authority (PA) has perpetuated another "drug libel," Palestinian Media Watch reports Wednesday - a continuation of the anti-Semitic trope ("blood libel") whereby Jews are accused of purposefully harming their neighbors in odd and counterintuitive ways... In 2012, PMW exposed five different articles in which PA officials had claimed Israel was distributing and manufacturing drugs in the PA, through a 'systematic policy to destroy Palestinian society.'"  

Jewish paper cites PMW documentation: PA opposes war with Israel only because they would lose 

"The indispensable Palestinian Media Watch has 'documented that PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas himself has said a number of times that he opposes violence against Israel only because it is not currently in the Palestinian interest. He has given two main reasons for this. First, Palestinians are not prepared militarily, and second, a war would heavily damage the infrastructure in the Palestinian areas.'" 

CBN News: PMW exposes that PA pays salaries of 60,000 civil servants who don't work 

"According to a 2014 congressional report, the U.S. government has committed more than $5 billion to the Palestinian Authority since the mid-1990s. Yet the average Palestinian is still living in abject poverty. In a video interview, obtained courtesy of Palestinian Media Watch, Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas indicates where the money may have gone. "We've been transferring more than 50 percent of our [P.A.] budget to Gaza, including salaries to 60,000 to 70,000 [P.A.] civil servants who aren't working," Abbas says in the video... According to those figures, those '60,000 P.A. workers receive $47 million a month -- not to work,' PMW said." 

Chicago Sun Times piece says Israel is not obstacle to peace, citing PMW material 

"A couple of recent episodes show it’s not Israel blocking a resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. After Israel killed the two Hamas operatives who murdered the three Israeli teens, the murderers were idolized by Palestinian Authority media as martyrs, according to the monitoring organization Palestinian Media Watch. The authority’s official TV said the two were killed 'at 2 a.m., according to Zionist hatred time.'" 

Israel Hayom cites PMW documentation of the PA glorifying the killer of 3 Israeli teens 

"Last month, when the terrorists who abducted and murdered Israeli teenagers Eyal Yifrach, Gil-ad Shaer and Naftali Frenkel near Hebron in June (a trigger for Operation Protective Edge) were apprehended and killed when they opened fire on Israeli soldiers, the official PA TV channel broadcast the following segment, provided by Palestinian Media Watch: 'PA TV reporter: 'At 2 a.m., according to Zionist hatred time, the residential quarter in Hebron awoke to the sound of shots fired by the occupation directly at the two shahids [martyrs], Amer Abu Aisheh and Marwan Al-Qawasmeh...'" 

Algemeiner uses PMW documentation of PA accusing US of creating IS to destabilize Middle East 

"Just two weeks ago, both PA cabinet minister Yusuf Ida’is and the official PA news agency WAFA praised the killers of the three Israeli teenagers –one of whom was an American– as 'Shahids,' or 'martyrs.' And just a few weeks before that, the official PA daily newspaper Al-Hayat Al-Jadida published no less than five articles in a six-day period acusing the United States of creating ISIS in order to destabilize the Middle East. (For details, see www.palwatch.org)" 

Israel Hayom on PMW bulletin - Hamas says wiping out Israel will be easier from West Bank 

"If Hamas manages to establish a foothold in the West Bank, it would be able to wipe out Israel and establish an Islamic state in its stead, senior Hamas official Mahmoud al-Zahar told Palestinian news outlet Al-Ayyam on Wednesday. The interview, translated and posted by Palestinian Media Watch on Sunday, revealed Hamas' previously covert intention of taking over the West Bank." 

Breitbart on PMW bulletin exposing PA daily article praising Israel's treatment of Palestinian workers 

"A September 21, 2014 article in the Palestinian Authority controlled daily publication, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, praises Israel as well as Israeli businesses for their treatment of Palestinian workers. The same article condemned Palestinian employers for their unfair treatment of fellow Palestinians. First reported and translated by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), the Al-Hayat Al-Jadida article stated: 'Whenever Palestinian workers have the opportunity to work for Israeli employers, they are quick to quit their jobs with their Palestinian employers.'" 

IPT article on PMW bulletin about PA glorification of murderers of 3 teens 

"Two Hamas terrorists responsible for kidnapping and murdering three Israeli boys in June are being honored by the Palestinian Authority as "martyrs," according to a Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) report. 'Shahid,' or martyr, is a designation for people who 'achieve [the] highest status in Islam' and will be rewarded in the afterlife, the report said." 

JPost: Israeli-Arab MP compared Israel to ISIS, originally exposed by PMW 

"'The Israeli organization closest to Islamic State is the government of Israel,' Barakei said, according to a translation Palestinian Media Watch released on Sunday." 

Fatah hate speech worsened, according to Israel Hayom article citing PMW documentation 

"While Hamas operates for the most part underground, Fatah is out in the open... They [Fatah] also use the PA's official media organs, as documented by the watchdog Palestinian Media Watch. The public statements made recently by senior Fatah officials teach us that the language and terminology used by the organization in addressing local Palestinians has changed. Fatah and Hamas are trying to outdo each other in disseminating hatred of Jews and Israel, even while Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas speaks of reconciliation and nonviolence." 

Breitbart recaps PMW bulletin: PA officials call Israeli-Palestinian soccer match "a crime against humanity" 

One of the highest-ranking Palestinian officials condemned a recent soccer match between Israeli and Palestinian schoolchildren on a southern kibbutz, calling the bridge-building event “a crime against humanity.” Palestinian Media Watch reports that Jibril Rajoub, the deputy secretary of the Fatah Central Committee and the head of the Palestinian Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs, said the match represented “an Israeli attempt to cover up their crimes against [Palestinian] athletes.” “Any activity of normalization in sports with the Zionist enemy is a crime against humanity,” Rajoub said. 

Chicago Sun-Times cites PMW material on PA incitement during Gaza operation to show Abbas not serious about peace 

"Abbas has plenty of questions he should answer, for example, about the campaign of hate his government sanctions. PA TV likened Israeli bombing of a Hamas operations office to the 9/11 attack in New York, according to Palestinian Media Watch. Palestinian Authority media claimed that the recent kidnapping-murders of three Israeli youth, the work of Hamas, was an Israeli 'plot' to start war, that Israelis are 'adorers of Nazism,' and that 'the Israeli propaganda machine' and Jewish funding 'control the TV and media channels.'" 

Many Palestinians blame Israel for 9/11, evidenced in PMW bulletin 

"The Palestinian Authority TV ran a section last week showing a 12-story Hamas headquarters building being toppled by Israel, splicing that footage with the footage of the 9/11 attack in New York, and suggesting, all these years later, that Israel 'did it.' Palestinian Media Watch, which distributed the footage, after having translated it into English, said: 'Unfortunately the PA did not provide its viewers with all the facts... No one was killed in the Gaza attack, unlike in the World Trade Center, where nearly 3,000 innocent civilians were killed.'" 

Fox News: PMW documentation shows PA not acting like a potential peace partner 

"Abbas... has a strange way of signaling to Israelis that he wants peace... A study by the respected Palestinian Media Watch details a barrage of hate unleashed by the PA and its affiliate, Fatah... The U.S. should demand that the PA stop demonizing its neighbor. Unless the Obama administration and other “peacemakers” force the PA to talk peace to its own constituents, the toxic yield from its harvest of hate will poison hopes for peace for years to come." 

US pushing peace talks despite continued PA incitement, documented by PMW 

"The countless publications of the Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) organization, which monitors PA media publications and broadcasts make it clear there have been no changes whatsoever in the glorification of terror at the government level from Ramallah. So how does Mahmoud Abbas differ from Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal? Simple. He wages war with words, encourages terror at the diplomatic and educational level. It’s the most dangerous terrorism of all, and the United States and Europe both fund his efforts, full throttle." 

PA not a suitable peace partner, as shown by PMW documentation 

"On the very first day of the war, Fatah’s official Facebook page, called “Fatah – The Main Page” posted what it called “A message to the Israeli government and the Israeli people.” Here’s what Abbas’ Fatah had to say to Israelis as hundreds of rockets were being fired at them from Gaza: 'Death will reach you from the south to the north. Flee our country and you won’t die. The KN-103 rocket is on its way toward you.' And that was just the beginning... And Fatah’s assault has not been limited to words. On July 7, Fatah’s Facebook page announced that Fatah’s military unit, the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, 'targeted the enemy’s bases and settlements with 35 rockets.'" (All translations courtesy of Palestinian Media Watch.) 

PMW director Itamar Marcus is keynote speaker at event to welcome visiting NY Congressional hopeful 

One of the keynote speakers at the event was Itamar Marcus, whose NGO monitors incitement within the Palestinian media. Marcus urged Blakeman to fight against the notion that "Hamas is the problem and the Palestinian Authority is the solution." Noting the long list of incidents of anti-Israel and anti-Semitic incitement within the PA's official media even in the past few weeks, Marcus said that peace would not come until the international community recognized the difference between actual moderates and extremists. "The biggest mistake, the biggest misunderstanding ... since the signing of the Oslo Accords, is that the Palestinian Authority is a peace party." 

Arutz Sheva recaps PMW bulletin: PA claims teens' murder was "fabricated" to start war 

In an op-ed this Saturday by Yahya Rabah, a regular columnist for the PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, the claim was made that Israel invented the horrific murders as a "pretext." Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) revealed and translated the piece... The PA daily columnist asserted "the aggression began on June 12 following a fabricated event for which no one took responsibility, that is, the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teens." 

Tazpit News Agency recaps PMW bulletin: PA accuses America of establishing ISIS 

The Palestinian Authority official daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, has published five articles in the last six weeks accusing the United States of establishing the radical Islamic movement Islamic State (ISIS or IS) that has conquered vast territory in Syria and Iraq in recent months, this according to a report compiled by the Palestinian Media Watch (PMW).  

JPost: PMW special report exposes PA Holocaust desecration during Gaza war 

The Palestinian Authority and the Fatah Party constantly used Nazi and Holocaust analogies to demonize Israel during Operation Protective Edge in Gaza, according to a forthcoming report by Palestinian Media Watch titled "Holocaust desecration by the Palestinian Authority during the 2014 Gaza operation."... The following are examples of Holocaust comparisons used by PA and Fatah leaders and official news outlets: * Israel's operation was a "Holocaust unlike any that has been recorded in history" * The incursion in Gaza was "reenacting the Holocaust" * Binyamin Netanyahu is a "descendant of the Nazis" * Israel is "the new Nazis" * "Nazi Israeli mentality" * "Israel, the rogue state, which is still blackmailing Germany, Europe, and humanity with the Holocaust" 

Breitbart recaps PMW bulletin: PA accuses US of creating ISIS 

The state-controlled Palestinian Authority daily newspaper has published five separate articles in the past six weeks which accuse the United States of being responsible for the creation of the Islamic State terror group, Palestinian Media Watch reports. The articles all share a common theme, as Itamar Marcus of Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) documents: they are all based on the claim that “the US has a long term goal of controlling the Arab-Muslim states by dividing them through conflict and wars. ISIS's war and other conflicts are all said to be the work of the US.” 

Fox News on Fatah Facebook post exposed by PMW 

"Palestinian Media Watch... believes Fatah’s highlighting of its terror activities is a tactic designed to appease radicals within its own West Bank, as well as remind elements of Palestinian society clearly attracted by Hamas’ armed opposition to Israel, that Fatah also has terror options at its fingertips - and a track record to prove it." 

Dr. Manfred Gerstenfeld: "Subscribe to the bulletins of Palestinian Media Watch" 

Whoever wants to follow the more recent genocidal expressions of Hamas should subscribe to the bulletins of Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) or go to its website... PMW mentions that Hamas TV also recently broadcast a statement from former Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh who has said in the past: “We love death like our enemies love life! We love Martyrdom, the way in which [Hamas] leaders died.”

“Our belief about fighting you [Jews] is that we will exterminate you, until the last one, and we will not leave of you, even one,” the cleric says, according to a translation by Palestinian Media Watch. “For you are the usurpers of the land, foreigners, mercenaries of the present and of all times. Look at history, brothers: Wherever there were Jews, they spread corruption.”  

WND recaps PMW bulletin: Hamas loves death like Israel loves life 

“Today you [Israelis] are fighting divine soldiers, who love death for Allah like you love life, and who compete among themselves for Martyrdom like you flee from death,” said Hamas Chief of Staff Muhammad Deif in a recorded statement broadcast Wednesday by Al Aqsa TV, the Hamas channel. Palestinian Media Watch, which translated the statement and posted video of it, noted Deif is commander of Hamas’ military wing, the Izz A-Din Al-Qassam Brigades. 

Townhall quotes PMW director Itamar Marcus about Islamic TV: "The brainwashing continues daily" 

Itamar Marcus from Palestinian Media Watch observed, "Watching Islamic controlled TV is an eye-opening experience. Ads state that all sins are forgiven in suicide, and you will marry 72 dark-eyed virgins. Death by suicide is a joyous wedding to 72 virgins, not a funeral. Another public service ad suggests that when a mother loses one son, they should give the cry of joy and give a gun to their next son so he too can bring the mother joy."

WND recaps PMW video of Hamas song celebrating alleged kidnapping of Israeli soldier 

Members of Hamas – the Palestinian group governing Gaza the U.S. has designated a terrorist organization – earlier celebrated the alleged kidnapping of an Israeli soldier by shooting off fireworks and handing out candy to people in the street, according to Palestinian Media Watch. Now, Hamas has released a YouTube video of a song celebrating what it describes as the abduction of Israeli soldier Shaul Oron, who has been missing since last week amid the military conflict in Gaza...The song mocks Oron, Israel and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. “You retard, you will accept [our] terms and drink from the cup of humiliation,” the song tells Netanyahu. 

The Commentator: As seen in PMW video, Hamas "glories in death of Palestinian civilians" 

PMW quoted Hamas TV in the broadcast as saying: "Every soul has its time. These people - their time had come, and they were Martyred (i.e., Gaza civilians killed in war). They have gained [Paradise]... Being with Allah is better. What we see is very hard but we won't surrender, Allah willing. The first to say it are the Martyrs' family. The first to say it are the Martyrs' mothers and fathers... Don't be disturbed by these images. He who was killed this way doesn't feel." 

Who is killing Palestinian children? Hamas is, Frontpage Magazine concludes based on PMW material 

There is sufficient documentary evidence to show that Israeli pilots have cancelled scheduled air strikes after having spotted children and other innocents close to sites designated for destruction. On the other hand, since the outbreak of the war, the Hamas government repeatedly ordered citizens to ignore Israel’s warnings to evacuate before the strikes: residents were to remain inside their houses and not to “collaborate with the enemy.” [Links to PMW article]

Algemeiner quotes PMW director Itamar Marcus on Fatah's support for Hamas attacks on Israel 

According to Itamar Marcus, director of Palestinian Media Watch, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is not personally supporting Hamas rocket attacks on Israel, but Fatah—the movement he heads—is spreading a violent anti-Israel message on Facebook. In a Tuesday post on the official Fatah Facebook page, “a poster claiming to be from the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, the military wing of Fatah, called for renewing suicide terror attacks against Israel,” Marcus said. 

Cal Thomas uses PMW material to show that Abbas isn't so "moderate" as some believe 

Last week in a Facebook posting, as reported by Palestinian Media Watch, an Israeli research institute that studies Palestinian society, Ofir Gendelman the spokesman to the Arab media in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office, asked Abbas in Arabic if he saw reconciliation with Hamas as a means to fight Israel. Gendelman's post included a cartoon of Hamas and Fatah fighters smiling, shaking hands and aiming rifles at an Israeli soldier. “To his question about uniting to fight Israel,” writes PMW, “Fatah posted its answer: 'Yes, this is what we want.'” 

CBN news on Fatah and Hamas social media as exposed by PMW 

To understand the ideology embraced by Hamas and Fatah, a working knowledge of Arabic is very helpful. The two Palestinian factions formed a unity government in early June. The Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) staff makes it their business to monitor both factions' Arabic-language websites, Facebook pages, Tweets and satellite television programs. 

Based on PMW material, i24news.tv draws similarities between Fatah and Hamas 

Is the Palestinian Authority joining Hamas in its latest fight against Israel? Fatah posted Wednesday a video on its Facebook page from its military wing Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades warning Israelis to flee the country, NGO Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) reported. “Death will reach you from the south to the north. Flee our country without dying. The KN-103 rocket is on its way to you,” the message read. 

International Business Times cites PMW-exposed videos from during Operation Protective Edge 

Hamas aired a music video on its television channel that calls on suicide bombers to “blow up Tel Aviv,” Palestinian Media Watch reported Thursday. The Israel-based nonprofit said the video appeared Wednesday on Al-Aqsa TV, the Hamas-run television station in Gaza. The one-minute, 12-second video, which was uploaded to YouTube on Thursday, shows rockets being fired and destroyed cafes and buses from suicide attacks in Israel. 

Washington Free Beacon recaps PMW bulletin on Fatah video incitement 

The military wing of Fatah sent a message on Wednesday in Hebrew to Israel that “death will reach you from the south to the north,” and advising the Israeli government and people to “flee our country and you won’t die.” The video, made available by Palestinian Media Watch, was produced by the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades and posted by Fatah on Facebook. 

Powerline: President Obama should take a look at PMW's website 

Abbas is such a peacenik that the media under his control via Fatah or the Palestinian Authority ‎regularly call for the extinction of Israel. Palestinian Media Watch makes the work of the Palestinian ‎media accessible in English and interested observers can witness the phenomenon for themselves.‎ Let’s take a recent example highlighted by PMW. Only four days after the kidnapping of the three Israeli ‎teenagers, Abbas’s Fatah movement posted a video on its Facebook page promising Israelis: ‎‎“Death is near.”  

Israeli Ambassador to US Ron Dermer: The NY Times should read PMW 

The New York Times writes Palestinians have also been guilty of hate speech, but neglects to mention that Palestinian incitement is government backed, that Palestinian Authority leaders hail terrorists as heroes, name public squares after them and teach schoolchildren to emulate them. For daily dose of government-backed Palestinian incitement, check out – Palestinian Media Watch. No summer interns in the New York Times research department this year? 

Chicago Sun-Times: Based on incitement exposed by PMW, Abbas is culpable for murders 

As disclosed by Palestinian Media Watch, Fatah on its Facebook page depicted the three boys as mice, with a Star of David on their bodies, caught on the hooks of a fishing rod. This and other Palestinian Authority and Fatah propaganda in media, schools and mosques denies the Jewish history of Jerusalem, celebrates the murder of Israelis, glorifies the “martyrdom” of terrorists, and omits Israel from maps. 

The Blaze recaps PMW bulletin on Hamas children's TV show 

In Friday’s installment of a Hamas children’s television show that’s making a name for itself outside Gaza due to its incendiary subject matter, cast members and studio guests were encouraged to mimic the sound of rockets being launched at Israel as a way to “excite” the audience. Palestinian Media Watch, a Jerusalem-based research organization which tracks anti-Israel incitement in official Palestinian Authority and Hamas media outlets, uncovered the episode of “Pioneers of Tomorrow” and posted a translated excerpt on its website for purposes of educating the western media and policymakers. 

CBN News interviews PMW founder Itamar Marcus on Palestinian response to kidnapping 

Marcus says there's widespread support for kidnapping Israelis among Palestinians. But the celebrating stopped once Israel launched the massive search operation. "And the Palestinian population went into shock, so that the cartoons that were appearing the first days in celebration all of a sudden after the third and fourth day were now presenting Israelis as monsters, as terrorists," Marcus said.  

Australian Jewish News quotes PMW founder Itamar Marcus on PA cartoons glorifying kidnapping 

“The cup is clearly a champions’ cup and the cartoon is clearly a celebration of the capture of the Israelis,” said Itamar Marcus, head of the Palestinian Media Watch monitoring group. “The official cartoonist of the Palestinian Authority was clearly celebrating.” Marcus called upon Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to change the editorial line of his official media. He told The AJN: “Glorifying any terrorist act is immoral and it’s not only the kidnapping that should be condemned. Abbas should be condemning the glorification of it as well.” 

Jpost: Cartoons exposed by PMW show that the PA is not a peace partner 

Cartoons celebrating catching these three teenagers, showing mice with Jewish stars dangling on a fishing rod (that the vigilant Palestinian Media Watch translated), enrage me – and this from Fatah, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s ‘moderate’ movement if we swallow the naïve Obama-Kerry peace-processing Kool-Aid. 

WND quotes PMW research on duplicity in the Palestinian Authority leadership 

Palestinian Media Watch translated a Facebook posting by former Hamas government spokesman Ihab al-Ghussein saying that in private meetings with Hamas, Abbas admitted he was lying in his public statements. “When I go out (publicly) and say that the (PA) government is my government, and it recognizes ‘Israel’ and so on, fine – these words are meant to trick the Americans,” Abbas was quoted as saying. 

Israel Hayom: "The Palestinian Authority's true intentions [are] meticulously documented by Palestinian Media Watch" 

Nearly every day, there is some clear and transparent indication of the Palestinian Authority's true intentions, meticulously documented by Palestinian Media Watch. Not a day goes by without the Palestinian Authority's television station inciting its people to hate and kill Jews, naming squares and sports games after suicide bombers, or calling to replace all the land that we recognize as Israel with "Palestine." 

Newsmax TV interviews PMW founder Itamar Marcus about Palestinian children's TV 

Marcus' group, an Israeli research institute that studies Palestinian society through its media and schoolbooks, is appalled by the ideology fed to youngsters on a daily basis on Palestinian television. "One young girl . . . said [Israelis] rape the women in the city squares. Now, this girl is not old enough to know . . . what [it] means, but they are brainwashing these kids before they even know the meaning of the words," Marcus said. 

Breitbart recaps PMW report on PA and Hamas TV programming for children 

Both Hamas, which rules Gaza, and Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah, which governs the West Bank Palestinian Authority (PA), have produced children’s programming teaching that there is no such country as Israel, reports Palestinian Media Watch. There is currently no substantive difference between official Palestinian Authority and Hamas TV programming for children when it comes to not recognizing Israel's existence and envisioning a future without Israel. Both Hamas and Mahmoud Abbas' PA teach children to ignore Israel's existence, emphatically reject Israel's right to exist, and anticipate its eventual destruction and replacement by "Palestine." 

Jpost: John Kerry should read PMW 

The Palestinians voice their true desires quite openly in Arabic, but the Western diplomats seem to not watch the Arab TV channels. There is an organization called Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) which is dedicated to monitoring Palestinian news sources and translating them from Arabic to English/Hebrew. It would have done John Kerry a great deal of good to have watched some of their clippings before blindly throwing himself into trying to force the Israelis and Palestinians to come to an agreement. 

The Tower quotes "disturbing movie" translated by PMW 

Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) just published a report of a disturbing movie that was uploaded to the official Fatah Facebook page last week. PMW reports that the movie boasts that the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades was formed at the behest of Yasser Arafat in 2000 and still has its “finger on the trigger.” 

Fox News interviews PMW founder Itamar Marcus about PA portrayal of Jesus as Palestinian 

“The PA sometimes gets so involved in its own ideology that they forget the effect it has on other people,” Marcus said. “They think that their insistence on presenting Jesus as a Palestinian will be welcomed by the Christian community, but they haven’t apparently considered that this might be something that some Christians might find offensive.” 

The Commentator on PMW report: "Even Jesus has been Palestinianised" 

According to PMW, Palestinians have a track record not merely of using such Christian images as a weapon in the propaganda war against Israel, but even of claiming that Jesus was a Palestinian. "As Palestinian Media Watch has documented, the PA has misrepresented Jesus for years, claiming he was not a Judean as in Christian tradition, but rather a "Palestinian," thereby claiming a Palestinian history dating back to the time of Jesus. This exhibit reinforces the pretense that Jesus was a Palestinian by visually merging the image of Jesus in classical art with pictures of Palestinians." 

JNS.org cites PMW report on art depicting Palestinians as Jesus 

According to Palestinian Media Watch, which has documented several previous instances of Palestinian officials misrepresenting Jesus as a Palestinian, the exhibit “reinforces the pretense that Jesus was a Palestinian by visually merging the image of Jesus in classical art with pictures of Palestinians.”  

Arutz Sheva recaps PMW report on PA art exhibit 

The exhibit, which will be on display at the Church of Nativity courtyard and Deheisheh refugee camp, both locations the pope is to visit, will be up throughout the coming week, according to the report in the official PA daily, which was translated by Palestinian Media Watch. 

CNSNews quotes PMW research on PA depiction of Jesus as Palestinian 

PMW said the exhibits both portray Palestinians as Jesus, and also “reiterate another PA message - that Palestinians suffer as Jesus did.”... According to the Bible and historians, Jesus was Jewish. His depiction as a Palestinian is not a new phenomenon; the late PLO leader Yasser Arafat controversially called Jesus “the first Palestinian fedayeen,” using an Arabic term for militant or freedom fighter. PMW has long documented the P.A. representation of Jesus as a Palestinian. 

Newsmax reports on PMW story about Pope's meeting with Antisemitic Mufti 

The Pope will meet Mufti Sheikh Muhammad Hussein, the most senior religious figure in the Palestinian Authority, who is described by Palestinian Media Watch as having "an ongoing record of vicious anti-Semitic hate speech, which has been condemned internationally."... PMW said that in 2012 the Mufti preached that it is Muslim destiny to exterminate Jews as part of a Muslim holy war. On another occasion, in the Al-Aqsa Mosque, he said that Jews were "enemies of Allah," and in another speech he said that the souls of suicide bombers "tell us to follow in their path." 

Algemeiner recaps PMW report on Pope Francis' planned visit with Grand Mufti 

PMW said that it “is confident that the Pope, a symbol of peace and tolerance, will not knowingly honor a Palestinian religious leader who promotes hatred and intolerance. PMW is confident that should Pope Francis choose to meet with the PA Mufti, he will do his utmost to impress on the Palestinian religious leader the necessity of retracting his promotion of genocide of Jews by Palestinians and the abhorrent nature of those opinions.”  

Ottawa Sun: Considering PMW research, it's no surprise that 93% of Palestinians hold anti-Jewish views 

Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) exposed Abbas’ repeatedly describing terrorist killers — including someone who knifed a 76-year-old — as “heroes.” PMW has posted numerous clips from official PA television, featuring Muslim clerics, children and others vilifying Jews and Israelis, as descendants of apes and pigs... Unsurprisingly, 93% of Palestinians reportedly hold anti-Jewish views, and peace eludes the region. 

Breitbart: PMW research shows that PA goal is to expel Jews from all of Israel 

"Warning. This is a land of a Palestinian state and the occupation to leave immediately,” said the original English on the warning notice.

The Daily Caller posts PMW-exposed video: Palestinian TV teaches kids to shoot Jews 

A children’s television show on a Hamas-run TV station is encouraging kids to massacre Jews when they grow up. A young girl on Al-Aqsa TV’s “Tomorrow’s Pioneers” told a child host that she wants to grow up to be a policeman so she “can shoot Jews,” according to a translation of the May 2 episode by Palestinian Media Watch.

JNS recaps PMW report on PA military funeral staged for Sbarro bomber 

In the wake of Israel's Memorial Day for fallen soldiers and victims of terrorism, Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) has highlighted another case of Palestinian Authority (PA) representatives honoring terrorists who have killed Israelis. PMW shows that the PA has given a military funeral to Izz Al-Din Al-Masri, a suicide bomber who detonated himself in a Sbarro pizza shop in Jerusalem in 2001, killing 15 people. Seven of the attack's victims were children, and five members of one family were killed. 

The Commentator on PMW-exposed video: Hamas tells kids to shoot Jews 

Watchdog organisation Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), reported that, "on the weekly Hamas TV children's program Tomorrow's Pioneers this week. The young Hamas TV host Rawan talks to a young girl in the studio named Tulin, who tells her she wants to be a police officer when she grows up. The child host directs her to the conclusion that as a police officer she would shoot "all the Jews." 

Breitbart recaps PA official's call for Martyrdom, exposed by PMW 

Even during the peak of Israel-Palestinian peace negotiations, Fatah official Tawfiq Tirawi said that Palestinians would not abandon violence as a potential means. According to Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), Tirawi said that negotiations are just one option and do not replace use of the "rifle." 

Council on Foreign Relations blog, citing PMW material, concludes that "peace is far away" 

Palestinian Media Watch reports on the latest of the endless series of PA actions that do this. On August 9, 2001, at about 2 pm, a suicide bomber named Izz Al-Din Al-Masri blew himself up in the Sbarro pizzeria in Jerusalem, killing 15 people–7 of them children, as might have been predicted in a pizza parlor–and wounding 130. It’s hard to think of a better definition of a merciless terror attack than this. 

Haaretz: Washington Institute for Near East Policy confirms PMW findings on incitement 

This video, for example, was played on official PA television two days before Abbas’ Holocaust comment. In it, a young girl reads a poem which includes the lines: “To war that will smash the oppression and destroy the Zionist's soul.” Earlier this week, PMW posted an update on Tawfiq Tirawi, a Fatah Central Committee member, calling for Israel’s destruction. David Pollock, an expert at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, has been studying the issue for several years and published a major study on incitement last September called “Beyond Words: Causes, Consequences, and Cures for Palestinian Authority Hate Speech.”  

Algemeiner recaps PMW report: "Fatah depicts unity with Hamas as deal between two terror organizations" 

The Palestinian Authority’s Fatah Party posted a photo to its Facebook page featuring masked fighters from its Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades and Hamas’s Izz A-Din Al-Qassam Brigades wielding machine guns. Headlined, “Yes to unity and to ending the rift,” the Facebook post, translated by Palestinian Media Watch on Wednesday, showed how Fatah, in the green headband, and Hamas, in the yellow, present themselves to their supporters — as terrorist fighters.

Palestinian Media Watch, which monitors the Palestinian Authority’s statements, informs us: “Several times recently, Fatah Central Committee member Tawfiq Tirawi has openly rejected coexistence with Israel and called for a ‘return to the option of one Palestine from the river to the sea.’ During an interview on Hezbollah’s Al-Manar TV, he stated that ‘the only solution before us is the historic solution presented by Fatah in 1968.’” 

Israel Hayom references PMW research on PA Holocaust denial 

Material provided by outlets such as Palestinian Media Watch, which has for years documented the widespread lies and incitement against Israel and Zionism within internal Palestinian discourse, casts doubt on any and all of Abbas' statements. The work of PMW and others has shown how Holocaust denial and its concomitant distortions of reality have become part and parcel of the Palestinian narrative. 

The Tower, based on PMW research, concludes that "Fatah seems rooted in its past as a terrorist organization" 

According to PMW, the “Palestinian Authority (PA) paid more than £60 million” to convicted terrorists in 2013. The payments are enabled by the generous aid Britain has given to the PA, amounting to “£343 million between 2011 and 2015,” paying for “salaries and bonuses to about 5,000 convicted terrorists.” 

Chicago Tribune, Reuters cite PMW research on Fatah Holocaust denial 

Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), an Israeli monitoring group, says both Hamas and Mr Abbas’s Fatah movement have engaged in Holocaust denial. On its website, PMW cites a Hamas TV documentary which it said alleged Jewish leaders planned the Holocaust to eliminate the “disabled and handicapped.” But the website also mentions a statement issued by Mr Abbas’s Palestinian Authority in January condemning the Holocaust and the targeting of Jews. 

Washington Free Beacon on Hamas video exposed by PMW: "Our harvest is your heads" 

The terror group Hamas has been running propaganda videos on its television station depicting the murder of Israeli soldiers and warning, “Our harvest is your heads.” Hamas’s Al-Aqsa TV has been broadcasting the video, according to the media-monitoring group Palestinian Media Watch. 

Algemeiner on PMW video "Hamas: Our harvest is your heads" 

Palestinian Media Watch on Thursday translated a chilling propaganda ad showing snipers slaughtering soldiers from the Israel Defense Force, then grabbing their dog tags, while a narrator says, “Our harvest is your heads.” PMW also translated an article in official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida that quoted Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh insisting that Hamas’ policy of kidnapping Israeli soldiers would continue under a unified government. 

Breitbart recaps PMW bulletin on terrorist who complained prison interfered with his stamp-collecting 

Recently released Palestinian terrorist Issa Abd Rabbo, convicted of tying up two Israeli hikers and shooting them in the head, complained recently that he couldn't maintain his stamp collection properly while in Israeli prison, reports Palestinian Media Watch. 

Front Page Magazine quotes PMW material in criticizing EU funding of terror 

Organizations such as Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) have time and again shown how EU funding has facilitated hate literature and hate teaching in Palestinian schools. EU money has also been used to fund anti-Semitism in the Palestinian media. In the PA broadcasts, Jews have been described as apes, rats and crows. TV discussions that negate the Jewish connection to the Land of Israel, and characterize Israelis as bloodthirsty colonialists are not only hateful, they are inimical to peacemaking and amity between Arabs, Jews, Palestinians and Israelis.  

Times of Israel recaps PMW report on terrorist's complaint that prison interfered with stamp-collecting 

According to a Palestinian Media Watch translation Friday, Abd Rabbo told Al Hayat al Jadida, a PA daily newspaper, in an April 8 interview, ‘I’m proud of the stamps I collected in prison, but it was difficult for me to pursue [my] hobby in prison, because there were many restrictions, few letters arrived, and the quality of the stamps. Prison also affects our hobbies, and I had no special albums to put the stamps in properly, so I put them in an envelope — the same one that left prison with me.’” 

The Blaze quotes PMW director Itamar Marcus 

Director of Palestinian Media Watch Itamar Marcus told TheBlaze via email on Monday, “The Palestinian Authority has poisoned an entire generation of Palestinian children to believe that murder of Israeli civilians, including children, is heroic and something that Allah desires and rewards... In order for Israel to have real peace with children who have been so poisoned we need not just successful negotiations but years of reeducation and detoxification. The longer the West funds the Palestinian Authority without conditioning it on elimination of Palestinian Authority hate messaging, the West is responsible for the terror Israel will experience in the coming years." 

Times of Israel references PMW bulletin on Palestinian forest named for arch-terrorist 

The March 30 event at Martyr Khalil Al-Wazir Forest was attended by dozens of officials, including Minister of Agriculture Walid Assaf, District Governor of Hebron Kamel Hamid and representatives of the PA Security Forces, as well as several mayors from the Hebron district and relatives of Abu Jihad, Palestinian Media Watch said in a bulletin Sunday. 

Algemeiner reports on PMW bulletin: Hitler could have learned from Israel about concentration camps 

Media watch-dog Palestinian Media Watch reported on Friday how Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee Jibril Rajoub compared the Jewish state to Hitler’s Germany... “We are living under a racist and fascist occupation,” Rajoub said. “I’m telling you, if Hitler had come [here], he would have learned from them how to oppress humans and learned from them about concentration camps, extermination camps.” 

Arutz Sheva reports on story exposed by PMW: Terrorists send coded messages through PA TV 

A potentially dangerous signal sent by a released terrorist to jailed terrorists through official Palestinian Authority (PA) TV has been exposed by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW).  

Algemeiner cites PMW bulletin about coded messages in PA TV 

According to Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), Israeli police arrested the six for allegedly ferrying messages out of jail after meeting with their clients. The responses would come via coded messages aired on the Palestinian Authority’s television station. 

Jpost op-ed references PMW bulletin on PA claim that Western Wall belongs to Muslims 

Jews must adamantly and proudly defend their title and free access to their holy places. This is especially crucial in light of a new report by Palestinian Media Watch showing that the PA is now setting its sights on the Western Wall. 

Chicago Sun-Times: Obama fails to mention PMW-exposed incitement in talks with Abbas 

Not only does he not discourage hate language, Abbas even descends into it. In a recent speech in Morocco, Abbas called the record of more than three millennia of Jewish history in Jerusalem a “delusional myth,” reports Palestinian Media Watch. 

Washington Free Beacon: Obama should have asked Abbas about incitement exposed by PMW 

In October of last year, Abbas welcomed back home a group of 26 released Palestinian terrorists as “our heroic brothers,” according to the media monitoring site Palestinian Media Watch. “We welcome our heroic brothers who come from behind bars to the world of freedom. We congratulate ourselves and we congratulate all of you in this great celebration that unifies and returns our sons to us,” Abbas was quoted as saying of the terrorists. 

Jns.org quotes PMW director on PA's relationship with Hamas and Iran 

According to Itamar Marcus, the director of Palestinian Media Watch, the Palestinian Authority (PA) has not yet responded to the Iranian arms ship because of its complex relationship with Gaza-controlling Hamas... “Because the PA sees its greatest enemy in the world not as Israel—but as Hamas—Iran being caught trying to arm Hamas militarily leaves the PA unable to respond. The world sees Hamas being armed and Israel’s concern. The PA sees Hamas being armed and worries about itself,” Marcus told JNS.org. 

New York Post: "The White House... should read the files of Palestinian Media Watch" 

On the off-chance the White House decides to stop bullying Israel and face facts about Arab terrorism, it should read the files of the Palestinian Media Watch, which reports on what Mahmoud Abbas and others say when Americans aren’t paying attention. 

Australian Jewish News quotes PMW director on demonization of Israelis by Palestinian youth 

Jibril Rajoub, a senior official in the Palestinian Fatah party, which dominates the Palestinian Authority, claimed on February 12 that the recent arrest of two Palestinians for violence was worse than the detention of Jews by the Nazis. Itamar Marcus, director of the Palestinian Media Watch group, which publicised Rajoub’s speech, believes that in a society where senior officials are prone to such exaggeration, it expected that youngsters would do the same... 'The whole cultural environment is really one of projecting evil onto Israelis in any circumstances. It is what people hear in school, on television and in magazines.'" 

Breitbart News Network echoes recent PMW bulletin on Abbas` duplicity 

While Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas was praised for conciliatory statements made in English to an audience of Jewish students this week, Palestinian Media Watch reported that his recent statements in Arabic have carried quite a different tone, praising terrorists who succeeded in killing Israeli students... Palestinian Media Watch and other watchdog groups monitor the wide disconnect between conciliatory Palestinian leadership statements to Western audiences and their considerably more incendiary statements in Arabic to their own population. 

Commentary Magazine: Abbas` diplomacy distracts Western leaders from PMW-exposed incitement 

Far from echoing Abbas’s moderate statements to the Israeli students, the Palestinian media continues to broadcast and publish a never-ending stream of incitement against Jews and Israel in which terrorism is praised. Indeed, as Palestine Media Watch noted, Abbas has recently personally praised acts of terror against Israeli students. 

World Tribune cites recent PMW bulletin on terrorist who planned attack in order to earn PA salary 

The Palestinian Authority, nearing economic collapse, has maintained salaries to insurgents, including would-be suicide attackers, captured by Israel. In a report, Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) cited a Palestinian detainee who said he planned an attack in the Jewish state to help pay his debts... PMW, which testified in the U.S. Congress as well as in the European Parliament, has documented PA funding to insurgents, including those convicted of mass-casualty attacks. 

Algemeiner on PMW report to British Parliament: PA gave $100 million to convicted terrorists in 2013 

"A new report prepared and submitted by watchdog Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) to Britain’s Parliament reveals that the Palestinian Authority dolled out over $100 million to convicted terrorists in 2013, Israeli daily Ma’ariv reported. The beneficiaries include current and former criminal detainees held in Israeli prisons... The data collected by PMW was recently passed along to a special investigative committee of the British Parliament that is currently looking into allegations that European aid money to the PA is being diverted and allocated to the terrorist’s salaries. PMW CEO Itamar Marcus summed up the findings of his organization saying, 'The salaries that the Palestinian Authority is paying out not only reward terrorism, but actively encourage it.'" 

Fox News reports on PMW documentation: PA to give $46 million to released terrorist-prisoners 

"The Palestinian Authority reportedly is set to give an additional $46 million a year to released prisoners—many of whom are convicted terrorists. The money would be in addition to tens of millions already given by the Authority in salaries and benefits to both imprisoned and released terrorists, according to Palestinian Media Watch... Palestinian Media Watch first reported on the high salaries that were given to imprisoned terrorists in 2011. Since the release of the report, many European countries have condemned the Authority’s use of money to pay terrorists." 

Wall Street Journal cites examples of PA incitement documented by PMW 

"[As reported by Palestinian Media Watch,] in December, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas posthumously bestowed the "Star of Honor" on Abu Jihad, the mastermind of the Coastal Road attack, as "the model of a true fighter and devoted leader." Dalal Mughrabi, the Palestinian woman who led the attack itself, had a square named after her in 2011. In August, Mr. Abbas gave a hero's welcome to Palestinian murderers released from Israeli jails as a goodwill gesture." 

Middle East Quarterly reviews Deception: Betraying the Peace Process 

Marcus, founder and director of Palestinian Media Watch, and Zilberdik... have authored a must-read for anyone who stubbornly holds out hope that coexistence between the Palestinian Authority (PA) and Israel can be achieved in our time. It is not easy reading because the book meticulously and systematically compiles numerous public documents and statements in Arabic by PA officials and institutions that prove, beyond any reasonable doubt, that the Palestinian leadership teaches its constituents to hate, to deny Israel's right to exist, and to envision a world without Israel.  

Daily Caller uses PMW material to argue that PA isn't interested in coexistence 

As a rule, PA media and schools portray Israel as a diabolical creature destined to disappear. The New York Times recently reported on the Facebook pages of Palestinian schools quoting Hitler and its TV channel broadcasting young girls describing Jews as “barbaric monkeys, wretched pigs” and the murderers of Islam’s prophet Muhammad (the Palestinian Media Watch monitoring group maintains a YouTube channel of such regular, incendiary content).  

Times of Israel: Netanyahu responds to recent PMW bulletin 

“I’m concerned that in the Palestinian press we’ve had continual references to Nazi Germany, comparing Israel and Israel’s leaders to Nazis, saying that we carry Nazi genes,” Netanyahu said in his opening remarks at a meeting with the president of Georgia. “This is a way of poisoning the atmosphere for peace. It must stop. This whole incitement against Israel must cease if we’re to have the genuine peace that we deserve and our Palestinian neighbors deserve as well.” Netanyahu’s statement came a day after the Israeli watchdog Palestinian Media Watch published excerpts translated from a column published on January 22 in Al-Hayat al-Jadida, the Palestinian Authority’s official daily newspaper, in which the writer claimed that Netanyahu had inherited Nazi genes and explicitly accused him of using Nazi practices against the Palestinian population.  

Algemeiner interviews PMW Director about PA calling Netanyahu a Nazi 

"A few days ahead of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the official Palestinian Authority (PA) newspaper published an op-ed claiming Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “has preserved it [racism] and acquired it genetically from the days of the Nazis and the Aryan race,” Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) reported." 

JPost editorial on Holocaust remembrance cites PMW material as examples of Antisemitism today 

As Palestinian Media Watch has shown, school history books and media sources regularly omit the fact that Jews were systematically murdered during World War II. Some Palestinian leaders have compared Israeli control over Palestinian populations on the West Bank to Nazi treatment of Jews during the Holocaust. Purposely ignoring the atrocities committed against the Jews during the Holocaust or belittling them are often calculated attempts to undermine the moral legitimacy of the Jewish state. 

JPost article on PA incitement cites PMW research 

That incitement is rampant throughout PA media is nothing new; it has been there from the very beginning of what is called "Palestinian nationalism,” indoctrinating generation after generation in Jew-hatred. The Palestinian Authority’s campaign of Jew-hatred and anti-Israel venom is getting worse. A powerful presentation (largely based on PMW documentation - Ed.) by Israel’s Office of Strategic Affairs, led by Minister Yuval Steinitz and his director- general, Brigadier-General (res.) Yossi Kupperwasser, highlights the increasing vehemence of these attacks, which include Nazi references. Although thoroughly documented by the Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) and Middle East Research Institute (MEMRI), the issue has been largely ignored by international media, probably because it is so common. 

The Commentator quotes PMW documentation of PA incitement 

In yet another blow to the already fragile peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians, watchdog group Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) has revealed more devestating [sic] news about top Palestinian media and leadership promoting violence and Jihad. On Thursday, PMW said: "A song promoting violence was performed at a recent Palestinian Authority event under the auspices of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and in the presence of the PA Minister of Culture. The song demands "pull the trigger... redeem Jerusalem, Nablus and the country". 

Gatestone Institute condemns EU funding of incitement, based on PMW research 

In recent years a number of organizations and individuals have persistently highlighted the manner in which EU funding has been used to facilitate hate-materials and hate-teaching in Palestinian schools. Foremost among the organizations that have highlighted this has been Palestinian Media Watch [PMW], which has systematically and carefully collected and translated for wider English-speaking consumption the sort of language that is used routinely in the education sectors in Palestinian society.  

Arutz Sheva Op-ed: There are no two sides to the issue of incitement 

The 1052 word article begins this way: “Adolph Hitler is quoted on the website of Palestinian Authority schools. A young girl appears on Palestinian Authority television, describing Jews as ‘barbaric monkeys, wretched pigs,’ and the ‘murderers of Muhammed.’” This is clear, shocking, but pretty standard fare in the Arab world. If someone—a journalist, perhaps, was familiar with the fine work of Itamar Marcus’s Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), and with its translations of Palestinian text books and media, and with the work of MEMRI, which translates work in the Arabic world, he or she would not view this filth as even newsworthy. This is part and parcel of how Muslims are taught to view Jews and the Jewish state. 

Israel's incitement index largely based on PMW material 

"Since October 2009, a team of four Arabic-reading staffers at the Prime Minister’s Office has been scanning PA television and social media in search of Palestinian hate speech. A significant part of the [Israeli government's incitement] index relies on nongovernmental watchdogs such as Palestinian Media Watch, which this week released footage taken from official Palestinian TV comparing ultra-Orthodox Jews and Israeli soldiers respectively to crows and rats." 

NY Times article on Israeli incitement index cites many examples of incitement exposed by PMW 

Adolf Hitler is quoted on the websites of Palestinian Authority schools. A young girl appears on Palestinian television, describing Jews as “barbaric monkeys, wretched pigs” and the “murderers of Muhammad,” the Islamic prophet. Maps on the Facebook page of the Palestinian presidential guards do not show Israel. President Mahmoud Abbas himself embraced as “heroes” released Palestinian prisoners who killed Israelis. These are among dozens of examples (originally exposed by PMW) highlighted by Israeli officials in a new presentation documenting negative statements about Israel and Jews in official Palestinian Authority media and textbooks.  

Israel National News article on PMW documentation of PA incitement and the Israel Incitement Index 

"In its latest bulletin, Palestinian Media Watch, an organization that monitors the PA media for anti-Israel incitement, cited numerous examples of anti-Israel propaganda... The government on Sunday discussed the prospects of a final-status agreement with the Palestinians – in light of the ongoing incitement that the Palestinian Authority still broadcasts on its airwaves... During the meeting, Intelligence Affairs Minister Dr. Yuval Steinitz and the Director General of his ministry, Brig.-Gen. (ret.) Yossi Kuperwasser, presented the annual "Palestinian Incitement Index" that includes new findings from recent months in which the diplomatic negotiations have been conducted." (Note: PMW supplies material for this index) 

Israeli government links increase in Palestinian attacks against Israelis to PA incitement 

Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon said about recent events: "In recent months, we witnessed the growth of terror attacks... This in turn stems from the severe incitement in the Palestinian Authority, and the unwillingness of its leaders to educate the young generation about coexistence, a culture of peace, and a recognition of the State of Israel's right to exist as the nation-state of the Jewish people, in any borders." Ya'alon accused the PA leadership of paying lip service to peace when communicating with the outside world, while continuing to teach Palestinians to idolize suicide bombers and issuing calls for the destruction of Israel in messages to the domestic audience (exposed by PMW). 

Swedish aid supports PA owned media outlets that propagate incitement, documented by PMW 

"When Sida [Swedish Development Aid Agency] writes the final report for 2010-2012, the organization concludes that the report is based on interviews with partners and beneficiaries. On the list of persons interviewed, who can have influence on the Swedish aid, are... PYALARA and PBC, the Palestine Broadcasting Corporation that has two media stations: the radio station Voice of Palestine and PA TV... The PA TV has constantly been monitored by Palwatch (PMW), a research institute that is monitoring the Palestinian media. The antisemitic, anti-Israel and terror praising broadcasts by PA TV have been enormous. A search on Palwatch’s website on PA TV gives 5930 results in antisemitism, anti- Israel comments, indoctrination of children to hate Jews and glorification of terrorism." 

Strategic Affairs Minister Steinitz warns of Palestinian incitement 

"Strategic Affairs Minister calls on Abbas, Arab MKs to stop systemic incitement against Jews and Israelis... [As reported by Palestinian Media Watch,] Mahmoud Abbas decorated a known terrorist killer Wednesday, who was responsible for the murder of at least 125 Israelis in the 1970s and 80s. At the ceremony, he lauded the killer for "honoring" the PLO and called him "the model of a true fighter and devoted leader" to the Palestinian Arab people." 

PMW shows PA incitement is alive and well 

"While top Israeli officials attribute a lack of success in the current negotiations to PA incitement, the exposure of that incitement in the PA’s official media outlets is 'Israel’s front offense around the world,' [founder and director of PMW Itamar] Marcus tells JNS.org. 'The senior positions in Israeli government are using our material, accepting our material, and presenting this internationally, and this is impacting the way the entire world sees the Palestinian Authority,' he says. In terms of his watchdog group’s international impact, Marcus gives the example of how the revelation of the PA’s payment of salaries to terrorist prisoners sparked a legislative debate last spring in Norway, the largest funder of the PA in Europe. 

PMW findings brought international attention to the issue of PA incitement  

"PMW’s most significant audience is Israel’s Prime Minister’s office which utilizes PMW materials. Marcus has presented his finding to members of the U.S. Congress and Senate; the Canadian, British, French, German, Norwegian, Swiss, Italian, and Australian Parliaments. His reports on how foreign aid is misused by the PA for hate and terror promotion have led to changes in U.S. legislation and U.S. funding procedures." 

Breitbart interivew with PMW director Itamar Marcus 

"[PMW director Itamar] Marcus pointed out that the U.S. has a way to stop Palestinian incitement against Jews and Israel--which it is supposed to do under existing agreements: namely, it can cut off general funding to the Palestinians. That is essentially what happened after 2004, when legislation was passed preventing Congress from funding the Palestinian Authority unless certain conditions were met--or unless the president exercised a waiver." 

PMW director quoted in article about PA incitement as obstacle in peace talks 

"'Praising of murderers by Abbas is the ultimate incitement to violence because it’s telling Palestinians that if they want to be heroes, if they want to be accepted by their society, then the fast track to becoming a success in Palestinian society is by killing an Israeli, injuring an Israeli, or committing any kind of terror against Israelis,' Itamar Marcus, director of Palestinian Media Watch, told JNS.org." 

Academic article on PA incitement based almost ‎exclusively on PMW material 

"The most common form of recent incitement, with nearly one hundred documented ‎cases between March 2011 and December 2012 according to Palestinian Media ‎Watch, is that of glorifying terrorists, often manifested in statements by PA ‎officials." 

Israel Hayom cites PMW material to understand Palestinian prisoners/terrorists 

"If you truly want to know from which hateful and poisonous springs the murderers now being released drew their loathing of Jews; if you have asked yourself what causes a Palestinian, like Hazem Kassem Shbair, who is now being released from prison, to axe to death a 68-year old survivor of the Sobibor extermination camp, Bat Yam resident Issac Rotenberg -- go to the Palestinian media, their education system, their poets and singers... Go to the website Palestinian Media Watch." 

Jpost article about obstacles to peace cites PMW as important source 

"PMW has an enormous collection of examples of [PA] incitement on their website. A lot of the official Israeli documentation of incitement comes from this source. Their website can and should by examined by all Palestinians who question Israel’s concerns about Palestinian incitement against Israel.” 

Fox News on PMW bulletin - Hitler glorification in PA-associated youth magazine 

"A children's educational magazine sponsored by the Palestinian Authority extols the wit and wisdom of Adolf Hitler -- by wrongly attributing 10 quotes to the Nazi leader. Zayzafuna, a youth magazine whose advisory board includes Palestinian Authority Deputy Minister of Education Jihad Zakameh, published the list of quotes in its August edition in a section titled 'Among Hitler’s sayings,' Palestinian Media Watch reported. Palestinian Media Watch officials said the purpose of the list is seemingly to present Hitler as a 'sharp-witted and wise' person." 

Washington Times on PMW bulletin - Hitler glorificaiton in PA-associated youth magazine 

"The children’s educational magazine Zayzafuna, sponsored by the Palestinian Authority, enlightens youngsters with Adolf Hitler’s flair by wrongly attributing 10 quotes to the diseased dictator. The magazine, the advisory board of which includes Palestinian Authority Deputy Minister of Education Jihad Zakarneh, published in August a section titled 'Among Hitler’s Sayings,' Palestinian Media Watch reported... 'The purpose of attributing these ‘sayings’ to Hitler, it seems, is to present Hitler as a sharp-witted and wise person,' the report said." 

JPost article about PA Mufti cites PMW video of Mufti citing Hadith to kill Jews 

"In a video last year posted online by Palestinian Media Watch at an event celebrating the anniversary of the founding of Fatah, the Mufti cited a Hadith – Islamic tradition attributed to Muhammad – that says that the Resurrection will not come until you fight and kill the Jews." 

The Blaze on PMW report about Fatah glorification of terrorist shooter of 9 year-old 

"Fatah... apparently used its official Facebook page over the weekend to praise the shooter of an Israeli girl. And now the controversial post appears to have been removed... Palestinian Media Watch, an Israel-based research organization, uncovered the post and translated it to English... Palestinian Media Watch has reported extensively in articles and in its book Deception: Betraying the Peace Process, by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik, on how terrorism is glorified in the official Palestinian Authority media and among its most senior government officials." 

The Commentator - PMW reveals Fatah incitement as peace talks resume 

"Just when you thought it was safe (did you really?) for Israel to go back into talks with the Palestinians on a peace agreement, this emerges courtesy of the invaluable watchdog group Palestinian Media Watch: 'My homeland taught me that it is the blood of Martyrs (Shahids) that draws the borders of the homeland.'" 

PA announces grants for terrorist prisoners, just as US gives PA $148 million 

"The Palestinian Authority is doling out millions of dollars in cash grants to convicted terrorists recently released from Israeli prisons in a program announced the same day as the P.A. accepted $148 million in the latest round of U.S. aid. The authority announced Aug. 18 it would disburse $15 million in so-called “Dignified Life Grants” to more than 5,000 prisoners who had served more than five years in Israeli lockups, but had been recently released as a show of good faith by the Jewish state to bolster the Middle East peace process, according to Palestinian Media Watch." 

The Commentator expresses concern over PMW report on PA claims that US behind civil war in Syria 

"Through good friends at Palestinian Media Watch, we at The Commentator on Sunday reported to Britain, Europe and beyond an item that might understandably have gone unnoticed amid the terrible events in Syria, and the wider abrogation of responsibility over Iran... See this [the PA's] blaming even Obama for the bloodshed in Syria." 

The Commentator on PMW bulletin exposing the PA blaming the US for the civil war in Syria 

"In an unexpected, and according to diplomats untimely, intervention over Syria at a time of US and wider Western confusion over how to handle the Syria crisis, [PMW has exposed that] the Palestinian Authority's official newspaper has launched a series of blistering attacks on President Obama. On Sunday, the PA Daily said the following: [...] 'The Americans knew that Assad was destroying Syria and this is what they had hoped for, so they worked to have the massacres and destruction continue.'"  

JPost article on PA incitement quotes examples from PMW 

"In the PA, incitement is omnipresent and actively nurtured by officialdom via its controlled media... Numerous daily reports by Palestinian Media Watch more than amply illustrate this... Ubiquitous Palestinian denial of any Jewish connection to this land and right to exist here is serially overlooked. Just last week, PMW informed all and sundry that the official Facebook page of Mahmoud Abbas’s Presidential Guard posted a picture of the Western Wall with a Palestinian flag superimposed on it. Not a murmur of protest anywhere about the Arab claim to ownership of the holiest relic to Judaism." 

Times of Israel reports on PMW bulletin about PA visits to prisoners 

"According to a report in Palestinian daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadidah, Minister Issa Karake visited the family of Ahmad Salah, who was sentenced to 21 life sentences for his involvement in two suicide bombings in Jerusalem in 2003 and 2004, Palestinian Media Watch reported on Thursday. He also visited the home of Hilmi Hammash, sentenced to 12 life sentences for his role in a January 2004 bus bombing in Jerusalem. The families of prisoners serving time in Israeli jails receive a monthly stipend from the Palestinian territories, and upon their release the prisoners themselves receive an allowance often higher than the average Palestinian salary." 

The Daily Beast on the media's double standard against Israel 

"Palestinian Media Watch claims, 'The PA assigns the responsibility to the Jews for all of the problems of the world. Wars, conflicts and civil wars are all said to be triggered by the Jews. Indeed, the oppression suffered by the Jews throughout history is presented as the legitimate response of nations seeking revenge for the injury caused by the Jews living among them.' In one video from Palestinian Television displayed on the PMW website in July, a schoolgirl read a poem calling Jews the 'most evil among creations.'" (Aug. 15, 2013) 

Fox News on PA glorification of terrorist Abdallah Barghouti, exposed by PMW 

"Just as hopes emerge for new Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, the official Facebook page of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah political party is lauding a convicted terrorist for killing 61 'Zionists' in a series of attacks. 'The brave prisoner, Abdallah Barghouti, who has the longest [prison] sentence in the history of the Palestinian cause,' reads the Facebook page, first reported on by Palestinian Media Watch. Through its social media presence, Fatah glorifies five of the suicide bombings Barghouti organized between 2000 and 2003, including the attack at a Sbarro restaurant in Jerusalem that killed 15 people on Aug. 9, 2001." 

Possibility for success of peace talks questioned in light of PMW report - Washington Times 

P.A. Minister of Religious Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash was giving a whopper of a sermon — broadcast on P.A. television and reported by Palestinian Media Watch — in which he explained the wisdom of reaching fraudulent peace pacts with Israel... 'We have a [Palestinian] Authority and the world recognizes the [Palestinian] state. 'All this never would have happened through Hamas’ impulsive adventure, but only through the wisdom of the leadership, conscious action, consideration, and walking the right path, which leads to achievement, exactly like the Prophet [Muhammad] did in the Treaty of Hudaybiyyah.' 'The Hudaybiyyah peace treaty,' explains the PMW report, 'was a 10-year truce that Muhammad, Islam’s Prophet, made with the Quraish Tribe of Mecca….two years into the truce, Muhammad attacked and conquered Mecca.' The sermon ends with Al-Habbash asserting: 'This is the example; this is the model.' 

Times of Israel on PMW bulletin - Negotiations compared to Hudaybiyyah pact 

"A Palestinian minister likened negotiations with Israel to a medieval agreement signed between the Prophet Muhammad and his political rivals in Mecca, which he violated two years after signing, Palestinian Media Watch revealed on Monday. During last Friday’s sermon — attended by PA President Mahmoud Abbas and broadcast on national Palestinian television — [...] Habbash compared the decision of the PA leadership to negotiate with Israel to the agreement of the Prophet Muhammad on a 10-year truce with his rivals in the Quraish tribe of Mecca, known as the Treaty of Hudaibiya, reached in the year 628 CE." 

The Daily Beast on PA hate speech for kids, exposed by PMW 

"Hate speech is always disturbing. But it’s never so disturbing as when it comes out as poetry, recited in perfect pentameter and gorgeous rhyme, by the most adorable little girls you could ever hope to find. As Palestinian Media Watch noted this week, official Palestinian Authority television has invited children to recite hate speech several times over the past few months. In the video below, two little girls recite a poem describing 'sons of Zionists' as the 'most evil among creations, barbaric monkeys, wretched pigs.' It insists that 'Jerusalem is not [their] den.' It refers to them as 'filth.'" 

CBN reports on PMW bulletin: Little girls recited Antisemitic poem on PA TV 

"Despite talk about peace talks, the Palestinian Authority, is continuing to air anti-Semitic content and is even using children to do so. Palestinian Media Watch has been monitoring P.A. television, newspapers, and magazines, and websites for years. Last week, the Palestinian Authority's official state television featured two young sisters reciting a poem." 

Israel Hayom: PMW documentation reveals PA demonization of Jews 

"Palestinian Media Watch uncovers footage from Palestinian Authority television showing two young sisters reciting a poem that demonizes Jews: Jews are 'most evil among creations, barbaric monkeys, wretched pigs,' the girls say." 

Abbas gives award to arch-terrorist - The Commentator reports on PMW bulletin 

The leader of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas has courted fresh controversy by again honouring a leading terrorist, watchdog organisation Palestinian Media Watch is reporting on Wednesday. In a ceremony broadcast on Palestinian television and also posted on Abbas's Yuutube channel, Nayef Hawatmeh, the leader of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) was awarded the Star of Honour, in recognition, a Palestinian official present at the ceremeny said, for: "...his important national role in service of the Palestinian cause and the Palestinian people..." 

The Commentator on PMW bulletin - Abbas honors terror leader 

"It appals me that "moderate" Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas has just given a medal of honour to the leader of a brutal terror organisation that has slaughtered men, women and children... According to a piece that The Commentator ran this morning, pegged off the indefatigable watchdog group Palestinian Media Watch, Abbas has given the "Star of Honour" to Nayef Hawatmeh, the leader of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP). The DFLP has been responsible for a whole litany of atrocities." 

NY Daily News op-ed cites PMW material to highlight obstacles to peace 

"The respected Palestinian Media Watch quotes senior Palestinian Authority official Jibril Rajoub’s interview on Qatar’s Al-Kass Sports Channel (later posted on his Facebook page) in which he declares there is not an iota of difference between the PA and arch-rival Hamas when it comes to the ultimate fate of Israel." 

CBN uses PMW documentation to reveal PA official's contradictory statements about peace with Israel 

"Two months ago (on April 30), [Palestinian Media Watch reported that senior Fatah official Jibril] Rajoub told viewers of official P.A. television, 'We as yet don't have a nuke [nuclear bomb], but I swear that if we had a nuke we'd have used it this very morning.' Last December, [PMW exposed that] he referred to Jews as 'Satans' and 'Zionist sons of bitches.'" 

PMW director quoted in article about Paris museum exhibit on Palestinian suicide bombers 

"A Paris museum has drawn outrage from France’s Jewish community over a display depicting photos of Palestinian suicide bombers as martyrs.... Itamar Marcus, director of Palestinian Media Watch, explained that the 'greatest motivation for terror is glorifying the terrorists, adopting their ideologies, and honouring them as freedom fighters. It is this success of terror that breeds more terrorists. The blood of many civilians…will be on the hands of the Jeu De Paume Museum and those who embrace terror around the world, who are convincing future suicide bombers that their murderous deaths will have purpose.'" 

Commentary article uses PMW documentation to show Palestinian intentions regarding peace 

"How can Israel possibly make peace with people who consider its very existence 'illegal and null and void?' Nor has anything much changed in 49 years, as anyone who follows Palestinian Media Watch would know. Just last month, for instance, another senior PA official widely considered a “moderate” in the West, Jibril Rajoub, told a television interviewer, 'We as yet don’t have a nuke, but I swear that if we had a nuke, we’d have used it [against Israel] this very morning.' PA officials and the official PA media still consistently deny the Jews’ historical connection to the land of Israel, teach their people that the ultimate goal is a world without Israel, and glorify those who murder Jews." (June 3, 2013) 

International Business Times on PMW bulletin about UNRWA 

"On Monday, the director of the U.N. Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees was photographed with a map titled 'Arab Palestine.' [...] But in a statement released on Tuesday, the UNRWA rejected what they called 'baseless allegations of erasing Israel from the map.' Palestinian Media Watch, which originally reported on the picture... [said] in a statement on Friday, “UNRWA spokesperson [Christopher] Gunness' justification that the map ‘depict[s] a pre-1948 map’ is baseless, as the map includes the PLO-PA [Palestinian Liberation Organization -- Palestinian Authority] flag and not a British flag.” 

The Blaze reports on PMW bulletin: UN representative poses with map erasing Israel 

"The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) launched a German-funded project in southern Lebanon where the area's Director of UNRWA Affairs, Ann Dismorr, posed with a map devoid of any trace of the State of Israel, instead presenting it as a map of 'Palestine.' Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) captured the UN representatives' egregious actions and noted that above the map is the Palestinian flag and the inscription: 'Arab Palestine.' The text at the bottom of the map also reads just 'Palestine.'" 

The Blaze reports on PMW bulletin about PA official Rajoub: "If we had a nuke, we'd have used it this very morning" 

"Jibril Rajoub, a senior Palestinian Authority official who is frequently characterized as a 'moderate' in both the Western and Israeli media, said on Lebanese television that if the Palestinians had a nuclear weapon they would have nuked Israel 'this morning.' Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) discovered and translated to English the interview Rajoub gave to Lebanon’s Al Mayadeen TV on April 30. Rajoub also posted the video clip to his own Facebook page, according to PMW." 

Washington Times - PA official Rajoub called to "nuke" Israel, exposed by PMW 

"A leading Palestinian Authority said in an interview broadcast earlier this month that he supported violence against Israel, including a nuclear attack. 'I swear that if we had a nuke, we’d have used it this very morning,' said Jibril Rajoub, the deputy secretary of the Fatah Central Committee and the chairman of the PA Olympic Committee (as reported by PMW). He made the comments during a television interview with the Lebanese Al-Mayadeen television channel, which was then posted on his personal Facebook page." 

Times of Israel reports on PMW bulletin about PA who called for "all forms of resistance" against Israel 

"Jibril Rajoub, deputy secretary general of Fatah’s Central Committee... told Lebanese TV channel Al-Mayadeen on May 1 that, for Fatah, 'resistance to Israel remains on our agenda.” “I mean resistance in all of its forms,' he elaborated. 'At this stage, we believe that popular resistance — with all that it entails — is effective and costly to the other side [Israel],' Rajoub said in the hour-long interview, which was highlighted by the watchdog group Palestinian Media Watch on Tuesday." 

British government whitewashes its funding of the PA's support for terror, documented by PMW 

"Earlier this month, the British Parliament held a rare debate on "hate incitement against Israel and the West by the Palestinian Authority." The discussion was initiated by Gordon Henderson MP, who cited evidence compiled by Palestinian Media Watch, which documented the Palestinian Authority's long history of glorifying terror and promoting hatred against Jews." 

Times of Israel on PA glorification of murderer Issa Abd Rabbo, exposed by PMW

Israeli TV lauds PMW for success and impact in Europe 

TV hosts: "We'll continue discussing foreign affairs with Itamar Marcus who I'm already awarding a small Israel Prize, or maybe a big one... Norway has discovered that funds it gave to the PA are given to security prisoners. This information was brought to Norway's attention by PMW. Here is Itamar Marcus, director of PMW, good morning..." 

Israel Today reports on PA deception exposed by PMW 

"In a telling example of just how genuine, or, rather, how false, Israel's peace partners in the Palestinian Authority are, a monument that replaces the entirety of the land of Israel with a State of Palestine was hastily removed from Bethlehem before US President Barack Obama visited a little over a week ago... The monument switch was revealed by Palestinian Media Watch, which cited a Palestinian newspaper report showing that local Bethlehem residents were not pleased by what they saw as a cowardly ploy to avoid upsetting Obama." 

Times of Israel reports on PMW bulletin about PA monument hidden from Obama 

"The municipality of Bethlehem removed a monument depicting the Palestinian state as covering the entire area from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea ahead of US President Barack Obama’s visit to the city last Friday, Palestinian Media Watch revealed on Sunday. Obama’s route into the city would have taken him past the monument, called “The State Monument,” and said to show the “State of Palestine,” PMW said. The model of “Palestine” also includes all of Israel, thereby erasing it completely, the watchdog group noted." 

PMW findings initiate debate in Norway about funding to the PA 

"For a few weeks now, a fierce public discussion is underway in Norway. The Norwegian Foreign Ministry has reported in the past to the parliament that Norway's aid does not, for example, fund terrorists in prison. Palestinian Media Watch insisted that this information was incorrect. The debate became heated. This week, the Norwegian Foreign Ministry issued a notice, which should be called a confession, that their first report was wrong. Norway does transfer funds to the Palestinian Authority and these funds reach murderers sitting in prison in the form of ongoing grants. 

AJC calls on EU to investigate their aid to the PA, due to PMW influence in Norway 

The AJC Transatlantic Institute calls on the European Union and other donors to the Palestinian Authority to investigate how aid is spent to ensure it is not being used to reward terrorists.... Norwegian state broadcaster NRK TV recently reported that the PA is using foreign aid for payments to convicted terrorists in Israeli prisons (originally reported by PMW)... Norwegian Member of Parliament Peter Gitmark (Conservative) called these payments an 'indirect' form of funding terrorism." 

TheBlaze publicizes PMW translation of Morsi expressing anti-American views  

"Itamar Marcus who heads Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) tells TheBlaze, 'At PMW we are not surprised by the duplicity of Morsi. PMW has stressed that an integral component of Muslim Brotherhood ideology is the necessity for preparation and timing of terror and violence. The MB has the identical goals of Al Qaeda – a world subjugated under Islam. But as opposed to Al Qaeda that preaches attack the infidels at all times at all costs, the MB believes that it must be timed for proper benefit.'"  

JTA reports on PMW story about French mayor who honored Palestinian terrorist 

"A suburb of Paris made the killer of Israeli minister Rehavam Ze’evi an honorary resident. Bezons awarded the title last month to Majdi Al-Rimawi, according to [Palestinian Media Watch and] the March edition of its official newsletter... The inscription on the plaque prepared by Bezons... referred to Al-Rimawi as a 'political prisoner,' according to Palestinian Media Watch."

"A suburb of Paris has granted honorary citizenship to the Palestinian assassin of Israeli tourism minister Rehavam Ze’evi, Palestinian media reported recently... 'This is a strong political act,' said mayor Dominique Lesparre at the honorary citizenship ceremony, according to Palestinian Media Watch, which wrote about the event. 'It is an unequivocal [statement] concerning the [Israeli] colonization of the Palestinian people.'"

JNS on PMW report: European funds pay salaries of Palestinian terrorists in prison 

"The British and Norwegian governments are refuting reports by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) showing they contribute funds to salaries given to thousands of Palestinian terrorists imprisoned in Israeli jails... Recently the PA Minister of Prisoners’ Affairs, Issa Karake, corroborated PMW’s original claim, stating that the reference to the prisoners’ “salaries” as social 'assistance' was a false 'rumor.'" 

International Business Times on PMW report: Britain and Norway pay salaries of Palestinian terrorists in prison 

"Two of the Palestinian Authority's largest contributors include Britain and Norway, who shelled out more than $93 million and $53 million, respectively, in 2010... Unfortunately, much of this funding may be used for the promotion of something dramatically different from peace. According to new report out on Thursday from the Israeli-based research institute Palestinian Media Watch, 2.5 percent of the Palestinian Authority's monthly budget is eaten up by salaries for prisoners sitting in Israeli jails, many of whom are convicted of plotting or carrying out terrorist attacks. That 2.5 percent amounts to about $5 million every month that is paid as a salary to these men, not, the report emphasized, as welfare or social assistance to the men’s families." 

JNS reports on PMW's response to Israeli and Palestinian textbook report 

"'The report [comparing Israeli and Palestinian textbooks] is a complete whitewashing of Palestinian hatred of Jews and Israel and is one of the worst developments for peace since the early days of the Oslo Accords,' Itamar Marcus, the director of Palestinian Media Watch, told JNS.org. 'I totally reject the findings of the report, which are meant to create a symmetry between the Israeli and Palestinian education system that simply does not exist,' Marcus said. 'Palestinian textbooks are filled with blatant delegitimization and hatred, and this report is doing a great disservice to any future prospects for peace by essentially encouraging Palestinians to continue their curriculum of teaching hatred to their children.'"  

New Jersey Jewish News interview with PMW director Itamar Marcus 

"Itamar Marcus, founder and director of Palestinian Media Watch, worries about the radicalization of the Palestinian people, particularly the youth. In a recent phone conversation from Israel, he described textbooks, children’s shows, and even summer camps that glorify terrorists, demonize Israelis, and erase Israel from maps." 

JPost article: PMW one of the leading NGOs fighting anti-Israel bias 

"I am prepared to make an impolite but provable claim. Israeli public diplomacy should not be left in the hands of native-born Israeli bureaucrats and politicians... Look instead at the private NGOs that are battling the anti-Israel delegitimization and demonization campaigns... A few of the most outstanding examples include... Palestinian Media Watch’s Itamar Marcus..." 

USA Today article about Al-Jazeera's new US channel quotes PMW director Itamar Marcus 

"Itamar Marcus, director of Palestinian Media Watch, an Israeli research institute that studies Palestinian society and the Arab world through their media and educational materials, said there is 'a big difference' between Al Jazeera's Arabic programming and its international English-language broadcasts. 'The Arab broadcasts very often promote a very radical Islamist approach,' said Marcus. 'What's brilliant,' Marcus said, is the way the company 'binds this in with all the latest technology and even occasionally interviews with differing opinions, including Israeli leaders.' This creates a 'perception' of balanced reporting, Marcus said, 'but in fact, the overall underlying agenda is very radical.' 

JPost on PA denial of Jewish connection to Jerusalem 

"The Palestinian Media Watch NGO of Itamar Marcus exposed an item: The Palestinian Authority has denounced the existence of any Jewish history in Jerusalem. In this report, it claimed that the Jewish Temple 'exists only in the minds of radical organizations.' Not only do they deny Jewish identity to Jerusalem and the land, they actively reject and destroy all evidence and facts placed before them. Instead, they invent an ancient Palestinian history in its place. The Palestinian Authority, from Abbas down, accuses Israel of stealing Palestinian heritage when confronted with the evidence of our history." 

Israel Hayom reports on PMW bulletin about Fatah glorification of terror on Facebook 

"Arab media watchdog Palestinian Media Watch - headed by Itamar Marcus - has examined how Fatah has chosen to celebrate its 48th anniversary, which the Palestinian party has nicknamed 'Breakthrough Day.' The institute discovered a plethora web pages related to Fatah's official media and within the PA's educational system that displayed messages of incitement and accusations against Jews. Fatah glorified terrorism as acts of heroism on its Facebook page, PMW reported. " 

National Post reports on Fatah's new logo erasing Israel, exposed by PMW 

"The Israel-based Palestinian Media Watch noted the new Fatah logo features keys, a symbol of Palestinian claims to property within Israel, while the checkered pattern overlaying the image of a united Palestine is reminiscent of a keffiyeh, the scarf worn by PLO leader Yasser Arafat and a well-known symbol of Palestinian nationalism."
