PA news agency monitors Israeli media for incitement

Headline: "WAFA monitors incitement and racism in Israeli media outlets"
"The [official PA] WAFA news agency has monitored incitement and racism against Palestinians and Arabs in the Israeli media, and following is the essence of what appeared in its report no. 78, which covers the period between Feb. 26 and March 3, 2016:
Yediot Ahronot newspaper on Feb. 19, 2016: The Palestinian Authority is a terrorist authority (first appendix) [parentheses in source]: Yifat Ehrlich opposed Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon's step to transfer half a billion shekels to the Palestinians, in response to a question raised by the Yediot Ahronot newspaper on Feb. 28, 2016, and claimed that this step awards terror.
She stated: Kahlon’s decision to resuscitate the dying PA is a scandal. The funds meant to be transferred are indeed PA tax money, but have nevertheless been held by Israel until today. Why? Not to harass the PA, but to force the PA to stop holding a carnival of support for terror. Have signs of change in the incitement from [PA Chairman ] Abbas been seen recently? Absolutely not. The PA continues to keep a TV channel that daily broadcasts incitement against Israel and against "the Jewish sons of Satan," as they say. The PA holds royal funerals for murderers of [Israeli] citizens and names squares and schools after Martyrs (Shahids, i.e., terrorists ).'"
