Israeli police raid PA TV studios over incitement exposed by PMW
"Good Morning Jerusalem" was caught last January hosting a guest, President of the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics Ola Awad, who insinuated "there is an Israeli policy" to get local Arabs addicted to drugs. Awad said "this policy is clear Judaization of Jerusalemites in a direct manner." The statements were revealed by Palestine Media Watch (PMW)."

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

The Jewish Week - Dec. 16, 2014
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."

New Jersey Jewish News - Dec. 2, 2014
"Itamar Marcus of Palestinian Media Watch said the PA is poisoning the minds of its population through videos, cartoons, and even crossword puzzles. 'We know what they’re saying in English to the media and negotiators, but we wanted to know what they were saying in Arabic, particularly what they’re saying to kids, because that will affect generations to come,' said Marcus."

The Jerusalem Post - Nov. 11, 2014
"[For years] Palestinian leaders, including Abbas, [have been] claiming that Israel is intent on destroying al-Aksa Mosque or wresting the Temple Mount from Muslims. According to one such claim, construction on the Mughrabi Bridge was a plot to undermine the foundation of the Aksa Mosque. (The watchdog organization Palestinian Media Watch maintains an online catalog of countless such statements, going back to 1997)."

Israel Hayom - Nov. 21, 2014
"Nan Jacques Zilberdik and Itamar Marcus of Palestinian Media Watch reported this week that in recent weeks Mahmoud al-Habash, Mahmoud Abbas' adviser on religious affairs, has adopted the terminology and religious belief of Hamas, which portrays peace with Israel as a violation of Islamic law."

The Washington Free Beacon - Nov. 20, 2014
"After Abbas’s denunciation of the latest synagogue attack, the official Facebook page for his political party Fatah reportedly posted a video and statement suggesting that his condemnation of terrorism was insincere. One of Abbas’s advisers praised the terror attacks on Thursday, according to Palestinian Media Watch."
