PMW in the Media

Arutz 7 on PMW documentation of PA responses to historic US court ruling holding PA ‎responsible for terror attacks 

"In response to a groundbreaking New York court ruling last week finding that the ‎Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and Palestinian Authority (PA) are liable for ‎terrorist attacks during the PA terror campaign of 2000-2005, the PLO has admitted it ‎can't pay the damages‎... PLO Executive Committee member Hanan Ashrawi admitted last Tuesday that 'the PA ‎and the (Palestinian Liberation) Organization lack the funds necessary to pay these ‎compensations or fines,' as translated and revealed by Palestinian Media ‎Watch (PMW)‎." 

PMW contributed to US court case holding PA responsible for terror attacks 

"A U.S. court awarded the victims of Palestinian terrorism $655.5 million in damages... Evidence submitted in court, some of it provided by PMW, showed that killers were on the PA payroll, that the PA paid the salaries of terrorists in Israeli prisons and made payments to the families of suicide bombers." 

Chicago Sun Times: US verdict holding PA responsible for terror confirms PMW documentation of PA terror promotion 

"The jury verdict in New York affirmed what had been obvious from the start: The ‎wretched campaign of murder and mayhem was supported, aided and abetted by the ‎Palestinian Authority, the governing body for Palestinians in the disputed territories, ‎and its parent organization, the Palestine Liberation Organization... Under the leadership of Abbas, Palestinian official media, schools and society in ‎general continue to glorify terrorists and dream of a Middle East without Israel on the ‎map. A recent Facebook posting by Abbas’ Fatah party advocated rocket attacks and ‎the 'end of Israel,' according to the monitoring group Palestinian Media Watch.‎" 

PMW played important role in US court case holding PA responsible for terror attacks

PMW documentation is basis for University of Haifa publication on Palestinians' view of peace 

"Dr. David Bukay of University of Haifa's school of political science has been leading a research project that just completed an in-depth investigation of Palestinian Arab views of the peace talks... Bukay explains that in the research all the materials were gathered by Itamar Marcus's Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), and adds 'if the state of Israel, instead of funding hundreds and thousands of Israel-hating NGOs gave funds to Marcus and the organization he leads... people in Israel would benefit.'"

Israel Today: PMW exposed to Congress in 2011 that the PA pays terrorists' salaries

Philadelphia blog: PMW exposed that Philadelphia Councilwoman unknowingly honored a terror supporter 

"Did you hear the one about the City Councilwoman who’s invited to meet and greet a visiting dignitary, she does, gives her a 'citation of honor' — and later learns the dignitary supports and praises terrorists? The visiting dignitary was Laila Ghannam, the Palestinian District Governor of Ramallah... After the event [honoring Ghannam], first reported by Palestinian Media Watch, Sanchez learned to her surprise that Ghannam is on record, and video, praising terrorists who had killed Israeli civilians."

JNS: PMW director honored with Israeli Prize for Media Criticism 

"The director of Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), an Israeli organization dedicated to exposing incitement to violence by official Palestinian outlets and other sources, will be honored with the Abramowitz Israeli Prize for Media Criticism this month." 

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."

"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.'" 

The Blaze quotes PMW director in article about Hamas video that promotes killing Jews, exposed by PMW 

"'The Palestinian Authority has been openly promoting murder by glorifying terrorists and has been paying salaries to terrorists for years and the West ignores it – and worse continues funding the Palestinian Authority and treating them like an acceptable government,' Itamar Marcus, director of Palestinian Media Watch, which monitors Palestinian media and societal trends, told TheBlaze." 

JNS on PMW bulletin: Fatah marks its 50th anniversary by anticipating a world without Israel

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). This hatred has metastasized like a cancer and an entire generation has grown up steeped in it. 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."
