UK MPs repeatedly use PMW material documenting the PA inciting kids to hatred and violence

Debate in House of Commons on military detention of Palestinian children by Israeli authorities, Feb. 7, 2018 Joan Ryan, Labour MP: “The Palestinian Authority’s policy of inciting violence -a policy which intentionally is aimed at children and young people. We see it in the manner which schools and sports tournaments are named after terrorists [exposed by PMW]; We see it in the newly revised curriculum, which asks students to calculate the number of martyrs in Palestinian uprisings as a maths exercise; and we see it in the countless examples of anti-Semitism which litter children’s TV programs on official PA TV [exposed by PMW] We must register our deep and continuing concern that the Palestinian leadership’s attempt to recruit children into committing acts of violence. In December, Fatah posted to its Twitter account this photo of a young boy hurling rocks with a slingshot [exposed by PMW], together with a guide as how best to throw a rock. Let's remember Yehuda Haim Shoham, one-year-old Jonathan Palmer, and three-year-old Adele Biton were all killed as a result of stones being thrown at cars they were travelling in." Louise Ellman, Labour MP: “The Palestinian Authority’s inciting young people to hate and kill, as is happening on the West Bank today. Indeed, such incitement is specifically in breach of the Geneva conventions... which specifically prohibits the recruitment and involvement of children in terrorist activities. Fatah recently tweeted a practical guide [exposed by PMW] to show young people how to throw rocks, euphemistically called 'stones.' And this has resulted in the murder of young people, including Yehuda Haim Shoham, aged five months. The Palestinian authorities incite hatred towards Jews and Israelis. The Palestinian youth magazine Zayzafuna's October issue claimed that Muhammad sanctifies the throwing of rocks at Jews [exposed by PMW]... One PA TV program, 'The Best Home' in May 2015, in that, a girl recited a poem calling Jews 'barbaric monkeys who murdered Allah’s pious prophets.' [exposed by PMW]” [House of Commons,, Feb. 7, 2018]
