Rally in the West Bank for the 29th anniversary of the founding of the Hamas terrorist organization

Member of Fatah Central Committee Abbas Zaki: "I say here on behalf of Fatah - at all its levels - how much we hope for cooperation [with Hamas] in events and true cooperation in policy, in order to be in one trench again against our common enemies, against Israel."
(Audience applauds) "O the Al-Qassam Brigades (i.e., Hamas’ military wing)"
Abbas Zaki: "Blessings to the Al-Qassam Brigades."
(Audience applauds)
Abbas Zaki: "Anyone who bore arms for Palestine is holy and important to us, as he bore arms while knowing that his soul and property are a sacrifice for the homeland whether he lives in prison or in Paradise... Blessings also to anyone who bore arms from the different factions."

The above clip was translated and documented by Palestinian Media Watch:

Founded in 1996, Palestinian Media Watch is an Israeli research institute that studies Palestinian society from a broad range of perspectives by monitoring and analyzing the Palestinian Authority through its media and schoolbooks. PMW’s major focus is on the messages that the Palestinian leaders, from the Palestinian Authority, Fatah and Hamas, send to the population through the broad range of institutions and infrastructures they control.

PMW’s many reports and studies on Palestinian summer camps, poetry, schoolbooks, crossword puzzles, religious ideology, women and mothers, children's music videos and the PA’s indoctrination of adults and children to seek Shahada (Martyrdom), have had significant impact on the way the world sees the Palestinians. PMW has presented its findings before members of US Congress and to members of Parliament in numerous countries, including the European Union, Britain, France, Norway, Sweden, Holland, Switzerland, Canada and Australia, and has lectured at universities and conferences world wide.

PMW material has been presented before the Foreign Affairs Committee in the US Congress and the US Senate Appropriations Committee. In addition, PMW reports regularly on how foreign aid is misused by the PA for terror promotion. These reports have led to changes in legislation and funding procedures. Through its bulletins and reports, PMW continues to give the world a precise understanding of the reality of the Palestinian Authority.
