Palestinian Media Watch director Itamar Marcus demanded “concrete evidence” from the WOSM to prove that the course had nothing to do with the PSA. “Until we are given evidence otherwise, will assume the information on the PSA website is correct and that this is a PSA course,” Marcus wrote in a letter to Stephen Peck from the WOSM.

"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...

The Australian reports on PMW report exposing PA Olympic official's terror support 

There is no chance for peace... so long as obdurate haters such as Rajoub are in charge of the Palestine Olympic Committee... Australian fellow travellers cannot plead ignorance of the motives of appalling men such as Rajoub, a member of the Fatah Central Committee. True, Palestinian leaders seldom make such statements in English. Yet the glorification of terrorists and the anti-Semitism that feature daily in official Palestinian media is readily available in English, online, thanks to the diligence of Palestinian Media Watch.
