Last weekend, a Palestinian child of merely 13 years of age, shot an Israeli father and son as they were eating in a Jerusalem restaurant. It is no wonder. Ever since the Oslo Accords were signed on September 13, 1993, many have thought of the Palestinian Authority as the reasonable partner, working in opposition to Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, the Lions’ Den, and other terrorist groups. Yes, they do work in opposition to those groups, and in coordination with the IDF, to save their own skin. However, they themselves have been guilty of the worst sort of child abuse imaginable, using every possible means, the media, textbooks, pageants, sports events, and summer camps, to inebriate their youth into thinking that there is only one state, named “Palestine” that extends from the (Jordan) River to the (Mediterranean) Sea. And worse still, that becoming a “martyr”, and killing innocent Israeli and American civilians is the greatest thing one can possibly do for one’s people and one’s nation.

Come listen to the expert, Itamar Marcus, who has devoted the last 30 years of his life to exposing this, and why it is time that we eliminate the wishful thinking that the Palestinian Authority is the “good cop”, opposing these other terrorist organizations, who are the “bad cop”, and why it is time we finally label the P.A., along with these other terrorist organizations, as the worst sorts of child abusers imaginable.

About the Speaker: Itamar Marcus, Founder and Director of Palestinian Media Watch, is one of the world’s foremost experts on the Palestinian Authority (PA). He travels the world speaking to members of Congress, parliaments, and governments presenting PMW’s findings that have literally changed the way the world sees the PA.

Marcus wrote the reports that exposed how the PA names schools, sporting events, and streets after terrorist murders; revealed the hate and terror promotion in the PA’s schoolbooks; brought to the world’s attention the PA’s indoctrination of its children to seek Martyrdom; and uncovered that the PA rewards all terrorist prisoners with high salaries. As a result, four countries have cut off all funding to the PA, and many more countries have significantly cut funding.

The PA has long disparaged PMW and Marcus. Palestinian official Hanan Ashrawi called PMW a “toxic organization,” and Jibril Rajoub, the #2 in the PA, called Marcus “the Goebbels of the 21st Century.” In contrast, ZOA, EMET, and Israel Media Watch all honored Marcus and PMW with prestigious awards, and The Algemeiner named Marcus one of the world’s “top 100 people positively influencing Jewish life or the State of Israel.”
