Palestine Press Agency reports that the Palestinian intelligence service wrote a memo to Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian intelligence service that revealed that a Zionist organization was funding Palestinian media to wage campaigns against the Palestinian Authority and Prime Minister Dr. Rami Hamdallah.
According to the memo, the Al Hadath media company says that it gets all its funds through advertising but that an examination of its expenses show that this is impossible. Therefore, it must be getting its money for its anti-PA articles from outside sources.
And this crack intelligence team found out that the editors of the newspaper met with J-Street representatives at the American Colony Hotel in Jerusalem.
The so-called intelligence agency says that one of the goals of the "well-funded" J-Street is to distort and disrupt the PA's political system. It also goes on to find connections between the Al Hadath newspaper and Hamas.
There you go!
J-Street, of course, is in love with Mahmoud Abbas and his government, and never says anything against him, reserving its "pro-Zionist" message only against Israel (with the occasional anti-Hamas message thrown in for balance.) This memo reveals only that the PA is hopelessly paranoid and incompetent.
But I would love to know what J-Street tells its Palestinian media pals at the American Colony Hotel.
