Palestinian Malevolent Indoctrination Exposed; Mainstream Media Are Indifferent

Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), an Israel-based non-governmental organization, analyzes and presents in English to the world the ongoing inflammatory indoctrination of Palestinians in Arabic particularly via Palestinian Authority (PA) television (West Bank). PMW is a unique resource in this regard; even the New York Times has occasionally used it as a source for some statistic.

But the Times and its media colleagues fail to recognize the significance of this usually Islamist-related indoctrination that sharply contrasts with the benign portrayal presented in English to the world by the Palestinians, their supporters and often the mainstream media. Clearly, the indoctrination (including that via mosque messages) motivates Palestinians to commit extreme violence against Jews.

An indication of the honored position of Islamist terrorists in Palestinian society is the fact that the PA has announced that it will cut all PA public employees’ salaries but not “pension stipends and the allowances of the families of the Martyrs, the wounded, and the prisoners [of Israel], which will be paid in full.” PA television said, “Our Martyrs and prisoners are the source of our glory and pride. They are more honorable than all of us.”

A recent indoctrinating message (Feb. 9, 2019) shows Palestinians joyfully singing on TV about the brutal murder of an Israeli by a Palestinian. As Israel grieves a brutal murder, PA TV sings:

From the music video:
“We are not afraid of the enemy –
a bone in the throat of the Zionists…
Victory is certain, it’s inevitable…
We have given them a taste of grief.”

The singer points to a young child he is holding as if to say, ‘this child is the future terrorist’

PMW’s Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik wrote about the music video: “Two days after the brutal murder [by a Palestinian] of the 19-year-old Israeli woman Ori Ansbacher, official Palestinian Authority TV broadcast a song celebrating that Palestinians cause Israelis grief… While singing the words promising more prisoners, the singer points to a young child he is holding as if to say: This child is the future terrorist; this child is the future prisoner. The song’s message is that today’s children are the future terrorists and prisoners …” This is not the first time PA TV broadcast this particular song.

According to the Jerusalem Post, the Palestinian man now in Israeli custody for murdering Ori Ansbacher, Arafat Irfaiya, informed interrogators that he wishes to become a martyr. This indicates that he’s an Islamist.

PMW study of PA inculcation

The findings of Kill A Jew–Go To Heaven, an extensive study containing more than 100 examples are:

PA teaches an ideology of virulent hatred of Jews and Israel that mandates the killing of Jews solely because they are Jews. The murder of Jews is presented not only as beneficial to Muslims and Arabs, but as necessary for all humankind. These findings are based on a thorough study and analysis of eight years of official PA television and PA controlled daily newspapers. This report documents how this hate ideology has been taught for years, well before the war started in September 2000, and continues even after the death of Yasser Arafat.

The roots of the hatred

PA President Mahmoud Abbas has shown that the hatred is related to Islamism. As is noted in a Wall Street Journal report on Oct. 18, 2015, Abbas is shown on PA television saying,

We bless every drop of blood that has been spilled for Jerusalem, which is clean and pure blood, blood spilled for Allah, Allah willing. Every Martyr will reach Paradise, and everyone wounded will be rewarded by Allah. The Al-Aqsa [Mosque] is ours, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is ours, and they [the Jews] have no right to defile them with their filthy feet. We will not allow them to, and we will do everything in our power to protect Jerusalem.

How do the media justify ignoring the pervasive Islamist-related hate as a crucial factor in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict?
