Israeli reporting on PA salaries to terrorists is incitement, says PA daily

"As part of the systematic campaign of incitement against the Palestinian prisoners in the Israeli media, on Aug. 15, 2011 the newspaper Yisrael Hayom published a report in which it criticized the fact that the Palestinian Authority pays monthly allowances to Palestinian prisoners and their families. The report said: 'A major part of the PA budget is used for salaries to Palestinian terrorists. According to a report [by Palestinian Media Watch] which reached a senior government member in Jerusalem, every Palestinian terrorist imprisoned in Israel receives a salary from the PA.' It also said, 'The PA receives funds from two sources: half from the American administration and the rest from donor countries.' In response to this [PMW] report, the newspaper [Yisrael Hayom] published inciting statements by political figures. Minister Eli Yishai said that 'transfer of funds to the PA must be frozen, the Palestinians do not want peace.' Minister of Tourism, Stas Misezhnikov, added, 'We must plan for the worst possible scenario in September; there may be strong - perhaps also armed - protest activities.'"
