Palestinian Media Mocks US Deaths

On a number of occasions, HonestReporting has noted the shocking anti-American content of the PA-run Palestinian media — content that is almost never reported to Americans (see our latest critique on this matter).

Palestinian Media Watch now has an alert that the official Palestinian Authority daily has used the picture of a memorial to dead American soldiers in Iraq to mock the United States’ dead.

At this difficult time for the US forces in Iraq, this is appalling, and it shows a definite alliance between the PA-backed paper and the Saddam-loyal terrorists wreaking havoc and spilling blood in Iraq.

Encourage your local paper to bring this to the attention of your community, so as to raise a healthy skepticism about today’s media barrage regarding the PA’s sudden interest in making peace. While Arafat is “reaching out in peace,” his Palestinian population is reading this.
