Itamar Marcus, the founder of Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) is in Los Angeles and his work of exposing the Palestinian Authority (PA) for what it is, is nothing but impeccable.
At the home of Avrille Krom, in Beverly Hills, Itamar gave a presentation which he gives to members of the government of Israel, foreign governments, community leaders, students and the public at large. Unless you see it with your own eyes and hear what comes out of the PA you will have a difficult time understanding how toxic the Palestinian Authority is.
These days there is a war going on in Israel, in which Arab-Palestinians, mostly youths, attack Jews with knives, fire bombs and rocks.
One needs to ask, what makes a 16 year old youth wake up the morning and go out of his home to try to kill a Jew?
The answer is vile indoctrination.
The PA indoctrination method #1: through the sports. Sports can be a peace builder but not for the PA. Through sports, the PA teaches Arab-Palestinian youth that to kill a Jew is heroic and competing in the sports with the Zionists is a punishable crime.
The PA indoctrination method #2: there is no legitimacy to any part of the state of Israel, not only a part of Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria. The PA official national message is denying Israel’s existence and denying the humanity of Jews and their right to exist.
The PA indoctrination method #3: twisting the writing in the Qur’an, which is anti-paganism to be anti-Jews. It is using Islam to deny Israel and Jews the right to be.
The PA indoctrination method #4: just like the Nazis’ message, the PA message is, Jews are the cause of all the troubles and the problem in the world. They do not have the right to live.
The PA indoctrination method #5: by the PA standard, anyone who kills a Jew is admired, honored and heftily rewarded, that includes admiring and honoring Hitler.
The PA incubates violence against Jews and upon a call, violence bursts among its people.
Nowadays, the world is busy with issues that do not concern the PA. Mahmoud Abbas, the president of the PA, needed to get the PA conflict with Israel back into the political limelight and papers’ pages, with the hope that the international community will put pressure on Israel to take unspecified action from which the PA may benefit.
Mahmoud Abbas is tricky. He does not call for intifada, which is organized terror and is considered a crime. He mildens the call; he calls for popular uprising, which sounds legit for the international community, leaving the fact that the very same “popular uprising” is intifada.
The Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) (www.palwatch.org) was established in 1996, just after the Oslo Accords were signed. It is an Israeli research institute, funded by private donations, that studies the Arab-Palestinian society from a broad range of perspectives by monitoring and analyzing the Palestinian Authority, through its media, schoolbooks and general conduct and behavior. PMW’s major focus is on the messages that the Arab-Palestinian leaders, from the Palestinian Authority, Fatah and Hamas, send to the population through the broad range of institutions and infrastructure they control.
If you want to help Israel to erase its negative image in the world, contact PMW, get the presentation, study it and then you have the best tool to go on the offense and prove to the world who is the villain.
Contact Palestinian Media Watch by email: PMW@palwatch.org.
When the world calls to end the PA incitement, your answer is, end the PA indoctrination of the Arab-Palestinian youths. It is a crime against humanity and child abuse.
