I was pleased to see Edwin Black's articles on salaries to Palestinian terrorist prisoners paid by the PA using US and other Western funding (see Financing Mideast Flames with Terrorist Salaries, Page One November 17, 2013). Palestinian Media Watch first exposed this story in 2011, and has been updating it ever since – including the debates in parliaments around the world against continued funding. The entire history of the story and impact this is having around the world can be seen on our website here: http://www.palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=1005.
Itamar Marcus is the director of Palestinian Media Watch.
Edwin Black replies: Palestinian Media Watch has been at the forefront of exposing terrorist salaries. In my book, PMW is robustly and repeatedly credited for its work both in the chapter text and its footnotes.
