Report Tracks Western Funding Of Palestinian Groups That Support Terror

Supporters and members of the Palestinian Fatah movement gesture during a rally in support of Islam in the West Bank town of Hebron on January 15,2015,and against the new cover of Charlie Hebdo, published in Paris, that again featured the Prophet Mohammed on its cover.

The Jerusalem Post reports: Palestinian civil society organizations that receive foreign funding are inciting terrorism, according to a new report by MEMRI (the Middle East Media Research Institute) and shared exclusively with The Jerusalem Post on Monday.

Palestinian organizations in the West Bank that receive funding from Western countries, institutions, and foundations, are “openly expressing support for terrorism,” said the report.

“They express this support with ceremonies exalting terrorists, with public displays of support for attacks and their perpetrators, by lionizing terrorists, and by posting inciting content on social media,” it said.

For example, The Palestinian Bar Association, the official body for lawyers in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, awarded an honorary attorney certificate to Muhannad Al-Halabi, a law student, who was killed after murdering two in Jerusalem and injuring two others, including a two-year old baby in October.
