PMW in the Media



PMW awarded Abramowitz Israeli Prize for Media Criticism 



Is Abbas a moderate? Is the PA under his rule a model of moderation whose only interest is to create a Palestinian state within the June 4, 1967 demarcation lines? The media’s job is to collect the necessary evidence and provide it to the public... Unfortunately, our media has consistently shied away from this issue... This is why Israel needs an organization such as Palestinian Media Watch. Its very existence is a stinging rebuke to Israel’s media."  



 
Times of Israel: PMW exposes that majority of Palestinians believe Israel was behind Paris terror attacks 



"A poll conducted by the Palestinian Ma’an News Agency after this month’s string of terror attacks in Paris yielded a startling conclusion: the vast majority of respondents believe Israel may have played a role in the Paris attacks… Since the attacks earlier this month, Palestinian Media Watch reported, the official PA media has been filled with conspiracy theories linking Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Mossad and Jewish leaders to the Paris attacks." 



 
Canada responds to PMW's exposure of map exhibit erasing Israel, supported by CIDA 



"Palestinian Media Watch wrote on Jan. 5 that the former Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA)... along with the Norwegian People’s Aid organization (NPA), funded an exhibition of maps of ‘Palestine’ that obliterated Israel... Canada’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs: 'Canada did not provide funding for activities associated with this project/exhibit, and has not funded NPA projects since 2012... Canada believes that Israel has every right to exist, as a free, democratic and distinctively Jewish state.'"

British Parliamentarians cite PMW findings to condemn PA " hate education" 



"The Conservative Friends of Israel lobby, whose website states they work with 2,000 activists alongside 80 per cent of Tory MPs refers to 'incitement and hate education' saying 'incitement takes many forms; denial of Israel’s right to exist, depiction of all of modern Israel as part of Palestine, portrayal of children as legitimate combatants, glorification of past Palestinian suicide bombings.'" 



 
PA incitement as documented by PMW laid groundwork for violence against Israelis 



"Not a day goes by without another fiery Palestinian Authority incident of incitement (painstakingly documented and broadcast to the world by the good work of Palestinian Media Watch).

The horrific result is the vast number of Israelis murdered at the hands of Palestinian terrorists." 



 
PMW Director Itamar Marcus interviewed by The Jewish Week 



Excerpt of the interview: "The hate messaging in recent years is as vicious — even worse — than the [Yasir] Arafat days. We’ve seen children on Palestinian television repeating a poem that says, 'My enemy Zion is Satan with a tail.' Recently, a boy on Palestinian television read a poem with the words, 'Oh you [Jews] who murdered Allah’s pious prophets, you have been condemned to humiliation and hardship. Sons of Zion, most evil among creation, barbaric apes and wretched pigs.' In the past, they denied Israel’s existence. Now children compare Jews to apes and deny the humanity of Jews."

JPost op-ed: PMW research shows that the PA's real goal is no Israel 



"There is an Israeli research institute called Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) which monitors what is being said by the Palestinian leaders in Arabic and releases translations to the public. Through extensive research and translations done by this institute, it becomes quite clear what the Palestinian leadership’s message is to their people: there is no 'Israel' and Palestinians must do everything within their power to rid Palestinian lands of the 'Zionists.'" 



 
JNS cites PMW-exposed statements glorifying terrorists made by Abbas' advisor 



"Palestinian Media Watch has compiled a long list of statements by [senior adviser to PA president Abbas and member of the Central Committee of Fatah Sultan Abu Al-] Einen praising terrorists. But the one that attracted the most attention was his public praise, in May 2013, of a terrorist who stabbed to death an Israeli father of five. Einen said the killer was a “heroic fighter” and called for “blessings to the breast that nursed him.” In response, five members of Congress—Republican Ed Royce (Calif.) and Democrats Eliot Engel (N.Y.), Nita Lowey (N.Y.), Ted Deutch (Fla.), and Brad Sherman (Calif.)—wrote to Abbas, demanding that he fire Einen."

Wait for them at the intersection. Let the settler drown in red blood.’”

This disturbing image, so common in anti-Semitic propaganda in past centuries, this week made an appearance with a modern twist: the hook-nosed would-be rapist wore an Israeli army uniform... It [the cartoon] appear[ed]... on the official website of the Palestinian Authority’s National Security Forces, according to a report by Palestinian Media Watch."
