Mada is the "Palestinian Center for Development and Media Freedoms."

It just released a report about alleged Israeli (and PA/Hamas) violations against women journalists.

The report says this:

Najla’ Mahmoud Al-Hajj (29 years old), media activist and a volunteer at Facebook radio station, was killed after the IOF shelled her family’s house in Khan Younis city, south of Gaza Strip, on 07/10/2014, this was no doubt the most severe among the total violations monitored against journalists during the past five years, especially because the bombing killed eight members of Alhaj's family too.

Najla’s sister, Fida’ Al-Hajj, reported to MADA, that their house had been shelled with two F-16 missiles with a short while between them, which killed her sister Najla’, her parents, 3 of her sisters and 3 of her brothers. The shelling also completely destroyed their house, affecting 30 other houses nearby with bombardment's shrapnel.
The report also repeatedly refers to Najla' Al Hajj's death as "murder."

First of all, Najla's writing for a Facebook page hardly qualifies her as being a "journalist." Mada says "She was a media activist on Facebook: she was the administrator of the page “Radya Rida Allah. Najla’".

UNESCO did not list her in their list of journalists killed in Gaza.

But what were the circumstances of her "murder"? Did Israel target her for death, which is the normal definition of murder?

Of course not. She was in her family house when it was targeted.

And her brother who was also in the house at the time, 20-year old Umar Mahmoud al Hajj, happened to be a Hamas Qassam Brigades terrorist.

Does that sound like "murder?"

Apparently, Mada's many funders and partners have no problem with their NGO making up lies. They include:

  • International Media Support (IMS)
  • The Global Network Defending and Promoting Free Expression (IFEX)
  • The Open Society Foundations (OSF)
  • World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers(WAN-IFRA)
  • UNESCO office in Ramallah
  • Foundation For the Future (FFF)
  • The Geneva Centre for Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF)

That EU money keeps on funding anti-Israel lies. And they are quite happy about it.
