Israel considers withholding funds to the PA equaling amount paid to prisoners each month
Jerusalem currently transfers to PA about NIS 400 million monthly that it collects for it in tax and duty revenue. The government is considering subtracting from the monthly tax revenue it transfers to the Palestinian Authority the amount the PA pays to terrorists and their families... Money paid to the terrorists represents fully 5 percent of the PA's annual budget.

Congressman Ted Poe cites PMW research in op-ed about terrorist salaries
According to Palestinian Media Watch, an Israeli-based NGO, the PA paid $100m. to terrorists in 2013... Every US dollar given to the PA serves as an indirect American taxpayer subsidy of whatever the PA chooses to spend its money on, including activities that are illegal under US law and activities that the United States otherwise opposes and seeks to stop... We need to stop subsidizing Palestinian Arab terrorists. We can start by halting all funding to the PA until they abolish the Law of the Prisoner.

Congress trying to prevent US tax money from funding terrorist salaries, based on PMW documentation
House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.) introduced the bill, under which President Barack Obama would have to certify that the Palestinian Authority “no longer engages in a pattern of incitement against the United States or Israel; and is engaged in peace preparation activities aimed at promoting peace with the Jewish State of Israel”...“No more Palestinian Authority-funded Facebook pages or children’s magazines holding up Hitler as a positive role model. Not only must the PA cease incitement, it should engage in a clear, conclusive and deliberate effort to officially and publicly repudiate the providers of such hatred,” Royce added.

Congress considers limiting aid to the PA based on PMW documentation
"The U.S. House of Representatives Appropriations Committee is considering freezing aid to the Palestinian Authority unless its continued incitement against Israel is curtailed... Itamar Marcus, director of Palestinian Media Watch, told JNS.org, 'How can the U.S. justify funding a PA regime that glorifies murderers-using American money? How can the U.S. justify giving money to a regime that demonizes Jews as descendants of monkeys and pigs? Conditioning funding on the end of hatred is the ethical thing to do.'"

PMW in the Media

The Blaze - Apr. 14, 2014
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."
