PMW in the Media

JNS.org - Apr. 9, 2015
"One visit to the website of Palestinian Media Watch provides ample evidence of the PA’s manipulation of soccer to promote terror. These are just a few examples from PA-controlled territory in recent years: In the town of Qaffin, a soccer team was named after “the Martyr Ziyad Da’as.” He helped mastermind the 2002 Hadera bat mitzvah massacre in which six people, including African-American band leader Aharon Ellis, were slaughtered. A soccer game in the town of Tzurif began with a moment of silence in honor of Khalil al-Wazir, better known as Abu Jihad, a veteran terrorist leader. He helped planned the 1978 Tel Aviv beach front attack in which Gail Rubin, the niece of a U.S. senator, and 37 bus passengers were massacred..."

Israel Hayom - Apr. 6, 2015
"The Palestinian Media Watch institute exposed that just a week ago, the official television channel ‎of the PA chose to broadcast a clip in which a school pupil calls to kill Jews ('We will fight the ‎Jews, kill them and overcome them.') This, of course, isn't the only incitement. Last year, the ‎Palestinian Authority Education Ministry organized a sports event in honor of the Egyptian poet ‎Hisham al-Gakh after the latter read a poem that included the words, 'My enemy, Zion, Satan with a ‎tail.'"

Fox News - Apr. 2, 2015
"The Palestinian Authority itself has been signaling their Israeli neighbors that they are ‎preparing their kids for war, not peace. The important NGO, Palestinian Media Watch, ‎continuously documents how PA uses education and culture to promote haters ‎and terrorist murderers of Jews.‎"

JNS.org - Apr. 1, 2015
"The Obama administration frequently does indeed pretend that a foreign leader didn’t say something—when a Palestinian leader is the one who said it. Here are a few examples, just from the past month. (All translations courtesy of Palestinian Media Watch.) On March 8, Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah Party celebrated International Women’s Day by posting on its official website photos and text praising Amna Muna, a Palestinian woman who kidnapped and murdered an Israeli teenager in 2001. Fatah called her 'O glorious one' and declared that she 'is always present in our hearts.' Obama pretended it never happened—after all, how can he admit that his Palestinian allies celebrate murderers?"

Arutz Sheva - Mar. 26, 2015
“PMW has documented how the PA's education system is an incubator of anti-Semitic hatred and incitement to murder Jews.”
