For years, Palestinian Media Watch has documented hundreds of examples of support for terror, incitement to murder and antisemitism on the official PA TV network.
A couple examples from recent weeks:
- It interviewed a relative of a dead terrorist describing his funeral as a "wedding "and the reporter offered condolences on behalf of all Palestinians.
- It interviewed an official who said that murdering Jews in Judea and Samaria is a "national duty."
Apparently, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked noted that the official TV station of Israel's "peace partner" was inciting people to murder Jews, and she demanded that it be shut down.
The PA's response:
The Palestinian presidency Thursday denounced statements made by the newly-appointed justice minister, Ayelet Shaked, in which she incited against the official TV station ‘Palestine’ and demanded its immediate closure.Yes, pointing out incitement is condemned as incitement itself!
In an official statement, the presidency called on the Israeli government to put an end to the stream of daily official incitement, the latest of which was the call to shut down the TV station.
It gets even better:
The presidency further urged the Israeli government to put an end to all acts that could lead to increased violence and tension.See that? Israel says to the PA, "Stop being violent." The PA answers, "Stop doing things we don't like that makes us violent."
They want Israel to stop doing everything that they find offensive, because that's what makes them violent - and therefore Israel is responsible for the murderous actions of the Arabs!
The demand is pure blackmail - do what we want or we cannot stop our people from naturally wanting to kill you.
The sick mentality of the Palestinian Arab leadership is clear from this article that they translated themselves to English.
All of their statements boil down to one rule: Palestinians have rights without responsibilities, Israelis have responsibilities without rights.
