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

Breitbart - Sept. 9, 2014
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 - Sept. 5, 2014
"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.'"

Fox News - Sept. 4, 2014
"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."

The Inquistr - Sept. 4, 2014
"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.'"

The Jewish Press - Sept. 1, 2014
"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."
