PMW Incitement Watch: The PA during the proximity talks, May - June 2010
This report is part of a PMW series monitoring Palestinian incitement during the proximity talks, which began in May 2010. These monthly reports were distributed in the European Union Parliament, and presented in the U.S. Congress and to the Prime Minister's Office in Israel. Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman and Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas declared that the PA would fulfill its commitments in the proximity talks, with special focus on their stopping incitement. However, PMW's analysis of Palestinian media has documented that every condition, principle and expectation set by the US and the Quartet for accepting the Palestinian Authority as a partner in the peace process continues to be violated by the Palestinian Authority in the first months of talks.
