Fatah blatantly supports terror – findings presented in US Congress

In case you were unaware, Fatah is the terrorist organization of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) umbrella of Jew-hating Islamic terrorists. AND the PLO is the backbone of the Palestinian Authority (PA) – HERE & HERE. The PA is the so-called governing organization that four military/economic powers – Quartet (which includes the U.S. government) have demanded Israel commit national suicide to create a sovereign nation for the fake Palestinian people.


Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) has presented a roughly 47-page report on how Fatah is supporting blatant terrorism against the Jewish people of Israel.

Yesterday, Palestinian Media Watch presented its report Fatah Votes for Terror to the House of Representatives’ Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on the Middle EastIncluded as an appendix to that report is a new collection of examples which show that Fatah continues to blatantly incite and glorify terror in 2017.

Oh, our revolution, my weapon has emerged.

There is no force in the world that can remove the weapon from my hand.

My path is bitter, your path is bitter, tread on my ribs and advance

How much this revolutionary people has sacrificed to live freely.”

The picture to the right, which Fatah posted on its official Facebook page and appears in Appendix 2 of PMW’s report, is just one of countless examples of the party’s violence promotion.

Fatah promotes terror during times characterized by daily terror attacks as well as during relatively peaceful times. In Fatah Votes for Terror Appendix 3, PMW documents that Fatah actively glorified terrorism on its Facebook page throughout the terror wave of 2015-2016.


The image below, which Fatah posted to its official Facebook page and appears in Appendix 3, glorified the ongoing violence and promised more to come:

The large number of examples documented in these appendices show that terror support is fundamental to Fatah’s ideology. This documentation is of paramount importance when examining whether the Palestinian Authority, with the Fatah Movement as its leading party, can be seen as a peace partner. Is Fatah leading the Palestinian people toward peace or toward continued terror?

YouTube blocks PMW video that exposes PA TV hate speech to kids


Unsurprisingly Youtube blocked Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) video exposing Hate-Speech broadcast from Palestinian Authority (PA) operated television. The irony is Youtube was not Censoring the PA from Hate-Speech but rather was Censoring PMW from exposing the PA as a Jew-Hating/Israel-Hating organization backed by major global governments including the USA to become an independent sovereign nation to be named Palestine. This also includes stealing half the Israeli capital city of Jerusalem to make it the capital of the only nation in the world that has one to exist; i.e. to kill Jews and overthrow a democratic nation and member of the United Nations.

YouTube blocks PMW video that exposes PA TV hate speech to kids


YouTube accuses PMW of “spreading hatred” and threatens to close down PMW’s YouTube account

Palestinian Media Watch


Last week, Palestinian Media Watch released a video-bulletin showing a Palestinian Authority children’s TV broadcast of a hate-poem. A young Palestinian girl recited a poem referring to Jews as “Allah’s enemies, the sons of pigs” who “murdered children,” “cut off their limbs,” “raped the women in the city squares” and “defiled Allah’s book.” The host responded with enthusiastic applause and “Bravo!”

The following day, YouTube blocked access to PMW’s video, defining it as a “violation of YouTube’s policy prohibiting hate speech.”





In the past, YouTube has closed PMW’s account or frozen PMW’s account for exposing PA religious leaders promoting genocide of Jews. This is the first time YouTube has defined a broadcast on PA children’s TV as hate speech, and blocked PMW from exposing it.

PMW does not promote hate speech, but exposes it. PMW believes that the only way to stop the Palestinian Authority’s ongoing Islam-based hate speech and terror glorification is to expose it. By preventing PMW from exposing PA hatred, YouTube is actively impeding our ability to fight the PA’s hate promotion.

YouTube has even threatened PMW with termination of its YouTube account should PMW continue exposing this hate speech:


“Additional violations may result in the temporary disabling of your ability to post content to YouTube and/or the permanent termination of your account.”

PMW has requested that YouTube return the video. PMW has no direct line of contact with YouTube administrators, other than their standard appeal option on their website. Therefore, we ask anyone who has contacts at YouTube to please help encourage YouTube to make our video accessible again.

For now, we have uploaded the children’s TV video to a different server and it can now be viewed here.

The following was the original bulletin last week:

Religious hate speech for children on PA TV

Child recites poem:

Jews – “Allah’s enemies, the sons of pigs”
“murdered children,” “cut off their limbs,”
“raped the women in the city squares”
and “defiled Allah’s book”

by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik


Recently, Palestinian children were taught Islam-based hatred of Jews on the weekly PA TV children’s show The Best Home. A young girl recited a poem filled with both Islamic hate messages and other libels demonizing Jews. The poem taught Palestinian children that Jews, “Allah’s enemies, the sons of pigs,” defiled the Quran and Jerusalem, both crimes against Islam, and “murdered children,” “cut off their limbs,” and “raped the women in the city squares.” Palestinian Media Watch has documented that this weekly PA TV children’s program teaches hatred and denial of Israel’s existence.

The suggested response to Jews and Zionists offered in this hate poem is military and Islamic:


“Where is the nation of Islam?
Where are the nation of Islam and the Jihad fighters?”

At the end of the recital of the hate poem, the young program host applauded enthusiastically and said:


“Bravo, applause, applause, applause to Hadeel.”

The poem also included a tribute to Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah organization and Arafat:


“From between the whistles of the bullets I sing:
‘Long live the nation of Fatah and Yasser Arafat.'”

This Islam-based hatred that in the past was associated exclusively with Hamas is now appearing in mainstream PA children’s education as well.

The following is the text of the hate poem recited by a young girl on PA TV’s children’s program:

Girl: “Allah created me and formed me
He made me prouder and made me a Palestinian
He made defiance flow like blood in my veins
And I made the revolution burst forth like clay stones
I raised the flags of certain victory:
Allah’s book [the Quran] and the tradition of the most esteemed among prophets [Muhammad].
I called in the voice of hidden justice
I lit a fire like volcanoes under their feet
I refused to be submissive and degraded
I rejected [everything] but dying with the honor that will give me life
From a nation that has forgotten the Muslims’ heroism
– Omar ibn al-Khattab and Saladin – [Muslim fighters who conquered Jerusalem]
from between the whistles of the bullets I sing:
‘Long live the nation of Fatah and Yasser Arafat’
Allah’s enemies, the sons of pigs (i.e., Jews, in Islamic tradition)
Destroyed and uprooted the olive and fig trees
They murdered children with guns, like snakes
They cut off their limbs with stones and knives
They raped the women in the city squares
They defiled Allah’s book [the Quran] in front of millions
Where is the nation of Islam?
Where are the nation of Islam and the Jihad fighters?
Where is the fear of Allah in Jerusalem, which has been defiled by the Zionists?”
PA TV host: “Bravo, applause, applause, applause to Hadeel.”

The Insanity of Creating Palestinian State

Cleric- Kill Jews

John R. Houk

© June 13, 2012


Let’s see, how to start this post. Way back in 1993 Israel and the leader of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Yasser Arafat under the direction of President Slick Willie Clinton came to an agreement for a path to Palestinian statehood via the Oslo Accords.


Essentially both sides were displeased with the other on following through with their commitments. The Palestine Authority (PA) which was created out of the PLO believed they would receive infrastructure upgrades that would benefit the economy of Arabs that call themselves Palestinians along with full authority of Gaza and Judea-Samaria (aka West Bank) and giving the boot to Jews living within the land. Israel felt the newly created PA would track down terrorists even at the expense of human rights like most Arab regimes do and stop the violence inside Israel.


I’m a Bible kind-of-guy so I don’t believe Israel should give up Judea-Samaria to a group of Arabs that have no ancient heritage to the land. Nonetheless, if I was Israel I would not pour money into a group of people that exist only to kill Jews and destroy Israel.


So can anyone tell me why America is part of Russia, European Union and the United Nations to bring about the existence of sovereign Palestinian State that is committed to the genocide of Jews in sovereign Israel?


Palestine Media Watch writes about the culture of hate that exists with the PA and Hamas of Gaza. In an email subscription message PMW reposts and article from the Jerusalem Post honoring Itamar Marcus for founding PMW and keeping the deaf world informed in the true intentions of Arabs that call themselves Palestinians for the Land of Israel.

“Teaching children to hate”

JPost article about PMW findings


Posted by PMW

By Maxine Dovere

PMW Post: June 10, 2012

JPost Post: May 19, 2012


The Jerusalem Post recently published an article about one of Itamar Marcus’ lectures during his recent trip to the US. The article also includes the history of Palestinian Media Watch’s founding, explains some of the major goals of the organization, and lists some of its achievements. The article was distributed by the JointMedia News Service.

The following is the text of the Jerusalem Post article:


Teaching children to hate

Palestinian Media Watch head: Those yearning for peace “want to believe so badly that there is someone there on the Palestinian side.”

By Maxine Dovere

“If your enemy says he will destroy you, believe him.”

Those were the words of Itamar Marcus, founding director of Palestinian Media Watch, when he recently joined The Jewish Week Associate Editor Jonathan Mark on stage at the 92nd Street Y in New York City to discuss the Palestinian Authority (PA) leadership’s use of culture, education, and media to influence its population.

Marcus has presented evidence of Palestinian incitement to the U.S. Congress’s Foreign Affairs Committee and the Senate Appropriations Committee, and has lectured to Canadian and European parliamentarians and international security officials.

Palestinian Media Watch (palwatch.org) is an NGO (non-governmental organization) dedicated to disclosure of the factual content of Palestinian media, founded by Marcus 14 years ago. Marcus said his purpose is simple: “To get a real sense of what is happening in the Palestinian world.”

Marcus made aliyah from New York and lives in Efrat. In an interview with JointMedia News Service, he recalled the first tapes he received of Yasser Arafat’s speeches while working for the Israeli government during the 1990s. In the midst of a highly visible “peace process,” the Palestinian leader, speaking on Arabic and Palestinian TV, called for jihad, saying any agreements with Israel were “temporary.”

When Marcus left the government, he initiated Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), and began to “tape all of official Palestinian TV, read the Palestinian newspapers every day.” What he found was an ongoing demonization of Israel and an ongoing denial of Israel’s right to exist.

Marcus’s tapes were brought to the 1998 Wye Summit and given to President Bill Clinton. Soon afterwards, an Israeli, Palestinian and American negotiating committee to deal with the problem of incitement was established. Marcus was appointed to the Israeli team, a position he held until Ehud Barak’s election as prime minister. “There was no significant progress” with the Palestinians, said Marcus. “The Palestinians are teaching their children hatred against Jews, and ultimately violence against Jews and Israelis,” he said.

The Palestinians, he said, “like to depict the conflict as territorial while hiding this horrific underlying ideology.”

Marcus remains a proponent of direct contact between Israelis and Palestinians, which he believes engenders respect and admiration for Israel as a democracy and a supporter of human rights. “The tragedy is that the Palestinians were much closer to peace with Israel before the Oslo Accords,” he said. “An ocean has developed because of hate promotion by the Palestinian Authority.” Marcus said chances for peace may have been better in 1996, when after decades of contact with Israelis, a poll of Palestinians showed that 78 percent considered Israel to be positive in democracy and human rights.

Now, Marcus is concerned about the effect that the teaching of hatred and demonization will have on the ability to produce a peaceful outcome with the PA. Given the level of hate indoctrination, success-not only in negotiation, but actualization-remains challenging, he said.

“The only way to reverse the down trend in acceptance of Israel,” Marcus said, if for Palestinians to “drop the lies-the planned delegitimization conducted by the PA, and replace it with truth.” Marcus said Israel has helped the PA in many ways, including construction of its infrastructure, assisting its economic base, and developing its universities.

“The population is so poisoned by hate material and terror,” Marcus said. “There is suffering on both sides – but the Palestinians don’t realize they have their own leadership to blame. They destroy truth and replace it with hate.”

Marcus said the way to heal this untenable situation is for the West to suspend funding to the PA, to not give a “penny of financial support or diplomatic support as long as structures of hate remain.” He acknowledged that the PA “will have to go through a period of crisis. If the western world keeps funding corrupt government, there is no future… They pretend that [Mahmoud] Abbas is a moderate while he honors terrorists.”

“You can’t have a political peace structure unless it’s proceeded by an educational peace process,” Marcus said. Both content and nomenclature, he said, are important. Marcus called attention to the Palestinian media designation of Israel’s Minister of Defense as the “Minister of War,” its labeling of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) as the “Israel Occupations Forces,” and its use of the title “resistance fighter” for Palestinian terrorists.

“It’s almost too painful, too hurtful, for many Israelis and American Jews to fully comprehend,” said Marcus. Those yearning for peace “want to believe, so badly, that there is someone there on the Palestinian side. When you look at the Palestinians, adults and children, singing about Tel Aviv and Haifa being Palestinian, or when you see their demonization of Jews and the de-legitimization of Israel and Jewish history, if you accept that as the official PA culture, then there’s no hope.”

PMW’s staff of 12 looks at all Palestinian media. Its purpose is not just to explore media, but also to study society, culture and education, and to “keep a finger on the pulse of the leadership and what they are teaching their kids,” said Marcus. “After less than a generation of hate indoctrination, only 7 percent of Palestinian teenagers accept that Israel has the right to exist,” he said. “For Israel to pretend otherwise will bring disaster.”


“Bringing up Palestinian children to hate is also stealing their future,” he added.
