PA TV shows Arab world video depicting terrorists and fighting women as role models
Note: When PMW first reported on the White Hands Campaign, its website listed the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) as part of the campaign's organizers and carried the organization's logo. Following PMW's exposure of UN's supposed involvement in the campaign, UNFPA issued a press release "disavowing" its involvement in the campaign. The campaign has since then removed the UNFPA logo from its website.
The following is the transcript of the Arab world video presenting women famous for Martyrdom and terrorist activity as role models. PA TV aired this clip weekly Nov. - Dec., 2010, twice weekly May - June, 2011, and three times in July, 2011:
