One of those ‘obstacles to peace’ the BBC won’t tell audiences about

Palestinian Media Watch informs us of a ceremony held last week in which the PA president Mahmoud Abbas awarded the “highest order of the Star of Honor” to the founder and leader of the DFLP (Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine), Nayef Hawatmeh. 


Hawatmeh and his organization are of course responsible for the murders of dozens of Israelis in terror attacks, the best known of which is the Ma’alot massacre in 1974.

Apparently, the Palestinian Authority’s latest display of glorification of terror – and the absence of preparation of its people for a peaceful solution to the conflict exemplified by such actions – is not deemed a ‘need to know’ item for BBC audiences and (unlike Israelis building apartments in Jerusalem neighbourhoods) does not constitute one of the BBC’s “stumbling blocks to peace negotiations.
