Palestinian Journalists Union: PMW exposure of Hitler glorification in Zayzafuna youth mag was a "misleading attack"

"The [Palestinian] Journalists' Union condemned the misleading attack led by Israeli media sources (i.e., the exposure by Palestinian Media Watch) concerning the ideas published by the Zayzafuna children's magazine... The Union stated that the magazine's aim is to encourage children to write and to express their views, dreams, and aspirations, and to guide them towards the realm of creativity and literature, without interference and without close supervision."

Note: Zayzafuna is a PLO magazine for children funded by the PA. The magazine, which includes material written by both the magazine’s staff and child readers, represents the values of the educators and serves as a window into the minds of the Palestinian children submitting material to the magazine. PMW’s book Deception includes a chapter on Zayzafuna. Following PMW’s exposure of Hitler glorification in the February 2011 issue, UNESCO halted its funding of the magazine.
