Written by Alexander J. Apfel/TPS on March 06, 2016The Internet video-sharing portal YouTube shut down an account belonging to Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) on Sunday, March 6 after claiming that PMW had violated YouTube’s terms of service.

PMW, which monitors and exposes incitement in Palestinian media, last posted a video to YouTube on Thursday March 3. The video showed a Palestinian girl reading a poem on official Palestinian Authority television calling for a “war that will smash the oppressor and destroy the Zionist soul.”

According to Itamar Marcus, PMW’s founder and director, YouTube has removed PMW material in the past on the grounds that it constituted hateful content.
