PMW US TV ad shows PA glorification of terror as obstacle to peace

shows PA glorification of terror
as major obstacle to peace

PMW has launched a TV ad campaign in Washington, D.C., to highlight the need for peace education as prerequisite for peace. The 30-second TV spot is running on CNN, FOX News, MSNBC and Headline News in the Washington area this month to point out the negative impact on peace of the Palestinian Authority’s policy to glorify terrorists.

The entire ad campaign is made possible through the initiative and financial support of a private donor.

This campaign coincides with PMW’s release this week in Washington of the new PMW report, From Terrorists to Role Models: The Palestinian Authority’s Institutionalization of Incitement. The 26-page report and additional documentation will be presented to members of Congress on Thursday at an event with Congressman Brad Sherman, Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation and Trade, and Congressman Steven Rothman, member of the Foreign Operations Subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee.

The ad campaign and the report follow the U.S. administration’s strong and public condemnation of Palestinian glorification of terrorists as an impediment to peace.

Phillip Crowley, State Department Spokesperson:
“We also strongly condemn the [Palestinian] glorification of terrorists. Honoring terrorists who have murdered innocent civilians, either by official statements or by the dedication of public places, hurts peace efforts and must end. We will continue to hold Palestinian leaders accountable for incitement.” [April 8, 2010]

These and other US government condemnations of the PA practice of terror glorification were in response to recent PMW reports and bulletins.

The TV ad ends with the words:
“If terrorists are glorified, how can there be peace?”
