PMW in the Media

The Algemeiner - June 2, 2015
"...[D]isplays of Jew-hatred and incitement to violence — thankfully monitored and translated daily by Palestinian Media Watch — are not only commonplace in the PA; they are sanctioned and promoted by it."

Chicago Sun-Times - May 29, 2015
"Palestinian Media Watch reports that the Palestinian Authority glorifies terrorism by naming sports contests, other events, streets and squares after terrorists such as a suicide bomber who killed 31 Israelis at a Passover feast. The PMW website also documented that, despite objections from European donor nations, the Abbas government continues to funnel donor funds to convicted terrorists. Celebration of murder and hostility to, even denial of, Israel’s existence are constant traits of Palestinian politics under Abbas."

Ynet News - May 29, 2015
"Jibril Rajoub, the head of the Palestinian Football Association and the Palestinian Olympic Committee, is ‎using sporting events to glorify terrorists even while seeking to get Israel banned from the international ‎football federation (FIFA), claims a report by the Palestinian Media Watch organization.‎ ‎'The Palestinian Authority's abuse of sports is a concrete example of how the PA chooses to ‎further entrench the conflict rather than work to resolve it,' says PMW.‎"

The New York Times - May 28, 2015
"Palestinian Media Watch, an advocacy group that monitors Arabic news and social media, issued a special report that quoted Mr. Rajoub condemning the coexistence of sports programs with Israelis as 'a crime against humanity' on his Facebook page. The report documented examples of sporting events honoring Palestinians who had killed Israelis in terrorist attacks, and of Mr. Abbas praising one of the men involved in the massacre of 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich."

The Jerusalem Post - May 27, 2015
"Palestinian Authority claims to have stopped paying salaries to convicted terrorists in Israeli prisons is a ruse intended to dupe Western countries into continuing financial support of the PA, according to a report released Sunday by Palestinian Media Watch."
