Following Palestinian Media Watch's exposure that official Palestinian Authority TV was calling for suicide bombings in a music video - which included the lyrics "Al-Aqsa has called... For its sake, life is insignificant... God, grant us Martyrdom" - Ofir Gendelman, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu's spokesman to the Arab media, tweeted PMW's report. Gendelman said that PA TV is promoting "ISIS-style Jihadi indoctrination," which "wouldn't have been aired without permission from PA president Abbas' office":
In response, Fatah posted on its official Facebook page PMW's subtitled video from PA TV, stating that "Gendelman, Netanyahu's spokesman, attacks PA TV" [Official Fatah Facebook page, Dec. 20, 2017]


The following are the lyrics of the PA TV music video exposed in PMW's original report that urges Palestinians to become "Martyrs": 
   
"Al-Aqsa has called, and its call is precious
For its sake, life is insignificant, even if it's precious...
God, grant us Martyrdom there
God, promise us, we beg of you...
A million grooms and brides at the celebration
Have written the marriage contract in blood on the veil

A million grooms and brides at the celebration
Have written the marriage contract in blood on the veil
(visual of suicide bomber Ayyat Al-Akhras, killed 2 and wounded 28, in Jerusalem attack)
Filled with desire, they are going to the Paradise of immortals
To a wedding procession with angels that fill Palestine with light."
[Fatah-run Awdah TV, Jan. 23-24, 2017;
official PA TV, Dec. 11 and 17, 2017

PMW reports often serve the Israeli Prime Minister as a source of information. For example, at the 71st session of the UN General Assembly, Israeli PM Netanyahu cited 10 examples supplied by PMW to show how Palestinian youth are incited to commit terror by their leadership.
