PA daily attacks PMW for "incitement"

Following a report by PMW on an article praising Palestinian terrorist Thaer Hammad, PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida ran a full article condemning the fact that PMW had described the killing of 10 Israelis in an unprovoked attack as "murder:"
 "The Israeli organization 'Palestinian Media Watch' has incited against journalist Hafez Barghouti, editor-in-chief of [PA daily] Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, for his editorial about the prisoner Thaer Hammad, related to the talks about a possible prisoner exchange between Hamas and the occupation government. The Israeli press gave extensive coverage to the report by this organization [PMW] which monitors the Palestinian media, which accused Barghouti of praising the 'murderer' Thaer Hammad, as they describe him, executor of what is considered the most famous and most important operation in the Al-Aqsa Intifada... The organization [PMW] noted that Hamed is responsible for killing seven Israeli soldiers and a paramedic, and the injury of two people they describe as civilians.
"The report cites that Barghouti expressed sorrow over the absence of Hamed's name from the list of prisoners whose release is being sought by Hamas. The organization [PMW] quoted excerpts from Barghouti's editorial... in which he emphasized that Hamed and those like him should be included in the anticipated exchange." Click to view bulletin
