against PA incitement based on PMW documentation 

Headline: US Congress Resolution to Target Rampant Palestinian Incitement

Sub-Headline:Resolution to the House details PA anti-Israel and anti-Semitic incitement in violation of 'Oslo II,' and demands actions to counter it.

A new resolution has been submitted to the US House of Representatives revealing the rampant anti-Israel and anti-Semitic incitement rampant in the Palestinian Authority (PA), and calling for American action to counter the phenomenon.

Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), a leading anti-incitement watchdog, hailed the resolution on Tuesday, noting that 14 of the 16 examples of incitement presented in the resolution were provided by PMW.

US Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) introduced House Resolution 293 earlier this month to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs.

The resolution begins by pointing out that "the 1995 Interim Agreement on the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, commonly referred to as Oslo II, specifically details that Israel and the Palestinian Authority shall 'abstain from incitement, including hostile propaganda, against each other and, without derogating from the principle of freedom of expression, shall take legal measures to prevent such incitement by any organizations, groups or individuals within their jurisdiction.'"
