PA TV hosts admits social media helps motivate Palestinians to become “Martyrs”

Official PA TV program Palestine This Morning, overview of Israeli journalism with Israeli affairs expert Fayez Abbas

Israeli affairs expert Fayez Abbas: “The caricature in the [Israeli] newspaper Yediot Aharonot today [July 4, 2016] – here is a Palestinian carrying a knife, saying that he wants to become a Martyr (Shahid) for the 72 Virgins in Paradise. The second [Palestinian] – maybe it is the guy from Facebook – says to him: ‘I’m going to become a Martyr and receive 72,000 likes on Facebook.’”

Official PA TV host: “Unfortunately that reflects the situation, true.”
