Prime Minister Netanyahu blames global Antisemitsm on PA incitement
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu opened his weekly Cabinet meeting Sunday (May 18, 2014) by addressing disturbing statistics from the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which published a survey last week proving that over 25% of the world's population holds anti-Semitic views. "This is the result of the Palestinian Authority's endless incitement against Israel and attempts to distort Israel's image and the character of the Jewish people, as we know from past experience," Netanyahu said.

British MPs call for suspension of aid to the PA until payments to terrorists cease
Tory MP Sir Gerald Howarth has called for Britain to suspend all aid to the Authority until payments to terrorists cease. ‘The Palestinian Authority is putting two fingers up to the British taxpayer,’ he said. ‘It is not the job of the hardworking British taxpayer to fund payments to terrorists.’... PMW said grants on release can be as much as £50,000. That compares to an average Palestinian wage of about £300 a month. Last year, the Palestinian Authority paid more than £60million to convicted terrorists

MPs in the UK and other countries consider withholding aid from the PA based on PMW reports on funding terror
In January, MPs representing the International Development Committee – the group that scrutinises Britain’s £8 billion annual overseas aid budget – quietly asked PMW to produce an updated version of the report, as part of its review of British aid spending in the Middle East. “It is like Britain paying money to the IRA so long as it is only used in soup kitchens,” said Itamar Marcus, one of the co-authors of the report. “The UK cannot close its eyes and pretend that it may not be UK money promoting terror.”

PMW in the Media

FrontPageMag.com - July 18, 2014
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]

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.

Chicago Tribune - July 15, 2014
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.'”

International Business Times - July 10, 2014
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.
