Israel Ambassador Prosor writes letter to UN about map erasing Israel, exposed by PMW 



"[PMW exposed that] on May 2, 2013, officials from the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) attended an event in southern Lebanon. At the event, Ann Dismorr, Director of UNRWA Affairs in Lebanon, posed for photos with a map that erased the State of Israel and identified the geographic area as 'Palestine.'" 



 
Israel Ambassador Prosor cites PMW material in speech to the UN 



"It doesn't take an urban planner to realize that the Palestinians are missing the blueprints to build a peaceful neighborhood. From cradles to kindergarten classrooms, from the fields of summer camps to the fields of football stadiums, messages of intolerance fill Palestinian society... Flip through the channels of Palestinian Authority television and you might find a children's program featuring a young girl reciting a poem that called Jews (and I quote) 'Allah's enemies, the sons of pigs' who 'rap[e] women in city squares (exposed by PMW).' Apparently, this is what passes for 'educational television' under the Palestinian Authority." 



 
Members of US Congress write to Abbas to condemn PA TV hate speech PMW had exposed 



“We are writing to express our grave dismay and deep concern over the recent broadcast of a children’s program on Palestinian Television which included rabid incitement against the State of Israel and the Jewish people. The children's show, The Best Home, included a scene in which a young girl recited a poem filled with messages of hate and other libels demonizing Jews (exposed by PMW).” 



 
Norway continues investigating its aid to the PA, based on PMW documentation 



There have been greatly surprising developments in Norway in the past weeks. Conservative parliamentarian Peter Gitmark has said on television that his country is indirectly funding Palestinian terrorists. The country’s three largest opposition parties – the Conservatives, the Progress Party and the Christian Democrats – have asked for an investigation into Norwegian financing of the Palestinian Authority by the Parliamentary Committee on Scrutiny and Constitutional Affairs... All of this was triggered by information provided by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW). It showed that the PA uses money from its budget to pay salaries to all Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails for security offenses. The recipients include those serving multiple life sentences for murder." 



 
PMW impact in Norway: Government questions its funding of the PA 



"Norway, of all places, suddenly has doubts about the financial aid it offers the Palestinian Authority. Norway is one of the PA's biggest supporters... Now, someone has woken up and the Norwegian media wants to know: 'Where is our money going?' ... Tormod Strand, a senior journalist with Norwegian public TV, decided to follow the money trail; and together with Itamar Marcus, who heads "Palestinian Media Watch" — an Israeli research institute that monitors the PA's media and schoolbooks — produced two episodes that presented the unadulterated hatred preached by the Palestinian Authority's media towards Israel and the Jews." 



 
Norway re-examines its aid to the PA based on PMW findings 



"A debate about aid to Palestinians has erupted in Norway, a country that has long been one of the strongest supporters of Palestinian causes in Europe. Suddenly, an urgent level of scrutiny is bringing into question whether Oslo’s aid might be making peace less likely, rather than more... The Israeli group Palestinian Media Watch monitors and translates Palestinian television, and it has long argued that its programming is poisoning the well, demonizing Israel and the Jews to their own people, even as Palestinian leaders speak of peace and reconciliation to international audiences." 



 
MP Henderson and Foreign Office Minister Burt debate PA incitement and British funding of the PA 



"MP Gordon Henderson has said Palestinian society is wracked by a "culture of hate" towards Israel and claimed British funding to the Palestinian Authority (PA) is being used to reward terrorism." 



 
Debate at highest political level in Norway following TV report on PMW findings 



NRK narrator: "The Progress Party and the Christian Democratic Party want Norway to cut the aid to the PA unless the demonization and hatred of Jews is stopped. Yesterday, NRK [TV] reported that the PA finances and partially controls a TV channel that broadcasts hatred of Jews... NRK's report on the Sunday Evening News, where we reported on the demonization and hatred of Jews in PA TV [exposed by PMW], is now causing strong reactions in [Norwegian] Parliament." 



 
PMW sparks debate in Norway on funding the PA 



NRK TV narrator: "[Palestinian] children grow up learning that Jews are 'Satan with a tail'... Adults hear that Jews are evil and not to be trusted. It is perhaps not surprising that the [Palestinian] hatred is growing. The messenger is a [PA] government that receives large amounts [of money] from Norway." 



 
UK Lawyer's Union calls on UNESCO and others to stop funding Arab Lawyers Union after PMW exposed it glorified a terrorist 



"UK Lawyers for Israel (UKLFI) has issued a statement condemning the Arab Lawyers Union (ALU) and its Palestine Committee for glorifying a suicide bomber [originally exposed by Palestinian Media Watch]... UKLFI urges the ALU to retract its statements glorifying Jaradat and her criminal conduct, and calls upon UNESCO, ECOSOC, ILO and other bodies to break off all relations with the ALU unless and until it does so. " 



 
PMW presentation in London initiates discussion among MPs and government officials about British funding of the PA 



"A report by the watchdog, Palestinian Media Watch, has revealed that every month almost £3 million from the Palestinian Authority goes towards paying salaries to Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails. These salaries are drawn from the PA general budget, funded by international donors, among them the UK." 



 
Dutch parliament passed motion to limit funding to the PA, based on PMW report and presentation 



"[Dutch] parliament adopted a motion that called on the Dutch government to reconsider support for the Palestinian Authority (PA) when they (the PA) sow hatred and glorify violence. However, the government failed to carry out the motion, even though Van der Staaij pointed to a well documented report issued by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), an institute that closely monitors anti-Semitic statements and articles in the Palestinian media or by PA clerics. For example, it was last January that PA Mufti Muhammad Hussein called for the killing of Jews quoting Islamic Hadith (tradition). He said, 'Our war with the descendants of the apes and pigs (i.e., Jews) is a war of religion and faith.' 'Oh Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me. Come and kill him.'" 



 
Australian MP lauds PMW after trip to Israel 



"[Australian MP] Baldwin spoke about learning from Palestinian Media Watch director Itamar Marcus about Palestinian children being taught to hate Jews, something he later used to challenge the Palestinian governor of Bethlehem. 'I said 'how do you then on one hand prescribe a passion for peace when you educate your children to kill the Jewish people?'" 



 
PMW Director Itamar Marcus to Dutch Parliament: Israeli government cracking down on PA incitement 



"The Israeli government toughened its policy last month on Palestinian incitement, Itamar Marcus, founder and director of Palestinian Media Watch, told Dutch legislators Thursday. 'There were a few public statements by the prime minister: He spoke about the glorification of the killers of the Fogel family; about the mufti of Jerusalem’s call to kill Jews [both of which were exposed by Palestinian Media Watch], and [PMW's]book, "Deception," was given by Israeli negotiators to Saeb Erekat 10 days ago in negotiations in Jordan,' he said. 



 
PMW book "Deception" used by Israeli negotiators at peace talks to prove PA incitement 



"In the latest meeting between the special Israeli envoy, Yitzchak Molcho, and the head of the Palestinian negotiating team Saeb Erekat, Molcho presented Erekat with a book that sets forth what Israel defines as severe incitement in the PA... The book which Molcho presented to Erekat, "Deception: Betraying the Peace Process", was published last month by Palestinian Media Watch. It provides hundreds of examples of hate speech, glorification of terrorists and murderers, and other anti-Israel statements during the period May 2010 – April 2011."

" 



 
UK Foreign Office Minister condemns PA Mufti speech calling to kill Jews, exposed by PMW 



"I condemn the inflammatory words used by the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and others at a recent event marking the 47th anniversary of the Fatah movement. To refer to the Jewish people in such a way and to talk of killing Jews is anti-semitism, pure and simple." 



 
Following PMW's exposure of PA Mufti's hate speech, Israeli PM calls for criminal investigation of Mufti 



"The Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), a watchdog group that monitors Palestinian media and textbooks, distributed a video last week of a January 9 Fatah rally during which Mufti of Jerusalem Mohammed Hussein, read out a well-known text (Hadith) attributed to Muhammad saying that the killing of Jews will speed up the redemption."
