(November 8, 2018 / Palestinian Media Watch) Palestinian Media Watch director Itamar Marcus spoke to members of Dutch Parliament this week, documenting the many ways in which the Palestinian Authority in itself is the fundamental impediment to peace. Marcus documented the P.A.’s vicious anti-Semitism, its indoctrination of children to hatred and terror, as well as the P.A.’s continued monthly payments to terrorist prisoners and families of killed terrorists.
Members of the Dutch Parliament expressed their condemnation of these P.A. activities and discussed steps that should be taken to stop the funding by their own government.
The legislators were also addressed by Kay Wilson, a British-born Israeli tour guide who survived a brutal terror attack in 2010. Kay was bound, gagged and stabbed 13 times with a machete and left for dead, while her Christian friend, Kristine Luken, was murdered.
Following previous PMW meetings and lectures with Dutch Parliament members, the parliament passed three different resolutions in 2013, 2015 and 2016, calling on the government to end or condition funding to the P.A. until it stops rewarding terror. However, the government has never implemented these resolutions. Kees van der Staaij addressed this issue:
MP Kees van der Staaij: “All that’s done until now [to stop P.A. payments to terrorists], it’s too soft, it’s not effective, and further and stronger measures are necessary.”
Wilson’s words left a strong impression on the MPs about the urgent need for foreign governments to stop supporting the P.A.’s rewarding terrorists:
MP Voordewind was optimistic that the parliament would pass stronger legislation this time:
MP Joël Voordewind: “We’ll try it again; we’re now part of the government, part of the coalition, so we’ll try to convince other coalition parties to support this resolution now.”
MP Voordewind wants the legislation to be very specific about how much funding to cut:
