PMW report leads to Senate bill limiting funding to PA and PLO
The Senate is acting to shut a loophole that allows Palestinian leadership to use US aid dollars to provide monthly stipends to people convicted by Israel of murder or terrorism... In recent years, the Palestinian Authority has transferred its stipend program to Palestine Liberation Organization control, which has allowed the program to continue unsanctioned (as exposed by Palestinian Media Watch in its report The PA's Billion Dollar Fraud – Ed.)

Following PMW’s findings on PA salaries to terrorists, British government reviewing UK aid to Palestinians
"The UK government has launched a review into its funding of the Palestinian territories.

PMW in the Media

Israel Hayom - Aug. 5, 2016
Palestinian Media Watch watchdog organization... has for years documented and translated Rajoub's statements in the Palestinian press... The Rajoub File, which researchers from Palestinian Media Watch have spent the last few weeks compiling, was recently placed before Israeli decision-makers. (Aug. 5, 2016)

Newsweek Europe - Aug. 5, 2016
The political party of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas bragged about its killing of Israelis... The post was translated by Israeli media watchdog Palestinian Media Watch, which said that Fatah issued a similar claim on its Facebook page in 2014. (Aug. 5, 2016)

The New York Times - Aug. 4, 2016
The party of President Mahmoud Abbas listed one of its main achievements as having “killed 11,000 Israelis.” The post garnered additional attention after it was translated into English by Palestinian Media Watch, an organization that monitors anti-Israel and anti-Semitic statements in the Arab news media. (Aug. 4, 2016)

The Algemeiner - Aug. 3, 2016
The head of an Israel-based research organization ridiculed PA President Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday for “creating, as policy, a virtual reality in which all truth is turned upside down.” Itamar Marcus, founder and director of Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), was referring to a report in the official PA daily on Tuesday that Abbas had declared that he was going “to strengthen the freedom of the press in the Arab world, and decided that August 1 will be Freedom of Opinion and Speech Day in Palestine.”

The Boston Globe - Aug. 2, 2016
"In a new report, Palestinian Media Watch has documented multiple examples of [Chairman of the Palestine Olympic Committee] Rajoub’s praise for terrorism and incitement to murder... Palestinian athletes deserve a better leader than Rajoub, a man so toxic with hatred that he applauds terror attacks and denounces games that bring Arab and Jewish kids together."
