Fatah – the West Bank’s current ruling party – launched their official Facebook page on February 1st.  First reported by “Al-Hayat Al-Jadida“, a Palestinian Authority daily newspaper, the page has just under 3,500 members at the time of this article’s publication.

It didn’t take long for the page to spark outrage, as the Facebook page portrays (photo below)the 8 terrorists who killed 11 people in the 1975 bomb attack on the Savoy Hotel in Tel Aviv as heroes.  Next to each of the terrorists pictures reads “The heroic Shahid (Martyr)”.

The translation of the Facebook page was provided by Palestinian Media Watch.

    @L.Rad, They did provide the link to PMW which had the link to the facebook page. The post in question can be found here http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=320026278033029&set=a.317261931642797.66283.317172108318446&type=1&theater

    While this is a potentially interesting and important story, I am embarrassed at your publication of this story in this form: where is the link to the Facebook page? Where do you explain the source of your translations? Where do you confirm (or not confirm) that this is ACTUALLY an official government page and not just one that somebody decided to call a ‘official’?

    A story like this is genuinely important, particularly for understanding the evolution of the violence and enmity in the region, but publishing the story in the FORM that you have done it is an affront to journalistic principles, as well as being incendiary and embarrassing to Jewish principles of integrity in representation that you should be upholding.
