Reuters retracts award for Palestinian over pro-Hitler, pro-terror comments

Jerusalem Post, 18, 2022

The Thomson Reuters Foundation rescinded its bestowal of a Kurt Schork Award in International Journalism on Palestinian freelance journalist Shatha Hammad after discovering old social media posts in which she praised Adolf Hitler.

In 2014, Hammad posted a comment on Facebook that said "Me and Hitler are friends. We have influence over each other and share the same ideology, such as the extermination of the Jews."

In a post the same year, Hammad described the terrorists that killed five Israelis in a terrorist attack as "martyrs."

Reuters takes back award given to reporter and self-proclaimed 'friend' of Hitler

by Jenny Goldsberry, Social Media Producer

October 20, 2022
Hammad was revealed to have shared a glowing opinion of the perpetrator of the Holocaust on her Facebook account in 2014.
The post read: "Me and Hitler are one..Friends and sleep together, but we have the same mentality, like, for example, the extermination of the Jews" with a smiley face. A second alleged post emerged, but Hammad denied having written it, so both organizations cited the single post as the reason for revoking the award.
