Official PA TV News, on Palestinian Culture Week
Official PA TV narrator: "In the Qalqilya and Tulkarem districts, the Directorate of Culture, together with the Tamer Institute for Community Education, organized two human chains titled "Baha Is an Idea and the Idea Will Not Die," in honor of Martyr Baha Alyan (i.e., terrorist, murdered 3)."
Director of the Directorate of Culture in the Qalqilya District Anwar Rayyan: "Our gathering today is about a human reading chain. Martyr Baha Alyan led this chain in 2015 (sic., 2014). Our clear, open, and simple message on this day and at all of our educational gatherings is that we are a people that reads, and if you want to be a people or to build a people you must read."

The Directorate of Culture is a branch of the PA Ministry of Culture.
The Tamer Institute for Community Education is listed among the “networks” under the Swedish Anna Lindh Foundation, and is a member of the Palestinian Non-Government Organizations Network (PNGO), which receives funding by Norway and the EU.
Baha Alyan and Bilal Ghanem – 22 and 23-year-old Palestinian terrorists who on Oct. 13, 2015, boarded a bus in Jerusalem's Armon Hanatziv neighborhood with a gun and a knife and attacked passengers, murdering Israelis Chaim Haviv (78) and Alon Govberg (51), and Richard Lakin (76), and wounding 3 Israelis. Alyan was shot and killed by an Israeli security guard at the scene and Ghanem, a Hamas terrorist who served time in Israeli prison in 2013-2014, was wounded. Ghanem is serving 3 life sentences and an additional 60 years for these murders.

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.
