Checking for Incitement

According to IMRA, a check of the website of the Palestinian National Authority State Information Service - International Press Centre on 30 June 2003 after IDF forces withdrew from areas of the Gaza Strip as part of an arrangement under which the Palestinians were to end incitement finds that the Palestinian Authority has acted against incitement . . . anti-American incitement.

All the anti-Israel material remains on the website.

This is particularly significant since it indicates that the presence of the material on the website is not the result of neglect but rather a decision by the Palestinian Authority to keep the inciting anti-Israeli material on the website while dropping the anti-American material.
