PA depicts a world without Israel
Denying Israel’s right to exist
PA depicts a world without Israel
The Palestinian Authority makes no attempt to educate its people towards peace and coexistence with Israel. On the contrary, from every possible platform it repeatedly rejects Israel's right to exist, presents the conflict as a religious battle for Islam, depicts the establishment of Israel as an act of imperialism, and perpetuates a picture of the Middle East, both verbally and visually, in which Israel does not exist at all. Israel's destruction is said to be both inevitable and a Palestinian obligation.

The following description of Israel's founding in a Palestinian schoolbook represents the dominant dogma about Israel:

"Palestine’s war ended with a catastrophe that is unprecedented in history, when the Zionist gangs stole Palestine … and established the so-called State of Israel."
[Arabic Language, Analysis, Literature and Criticism, grade 12, p. 104]
 
This official PA map of "Palestine” was broadcast on PA TV in September 2011. The map includes both the PA areas and all of Israel (excluding the Golan Heights) wrapped in the Palestinian flag - a symbol of Palestinian sovereignty over the whole area - and has a key through it, symbolizing ownership. Similar maps presenting all of Israel as "Palestine" appear in Palestinian schoolbooks and are shown regularly on PA TV.
Denying Israel's right to exist
The Palestinian Authority adamantly rejects Israel’s right to exist and rewrites history to deny the 3,000-year-old connection of Jews to the Land Israel. [See "Rewriting History" section.] The essential message of the PA to its people is that Jews have no historical connection to the land, and that the State of Israel was created by the colonial powers for two reasons: to rid their countries of Jews, and to establish a colonial bridgehead in order to control the region. One particularly horrific expression of this ideology appeared in the official PA daily as far back as 1998:

“The difference between Hitler and [British Foreign Minister] Balfour was simple: the former [Hitler] did not have colonies to send the Jews to, so he destroyed them, whereas Balfour ...[turned] Palestine into his colony and sent the Jews. Balfour is Hitler with colonies, while Hitler is Balfour without colonies. They both wanted to get rid of the Jews...Zionism was crucial to the defense of the West, [by] ridding Europe of the burden of the Jews.”
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Dec. 6, 1998]
 
This video of Palestinian Ambassador to Lebanon, Abbas Zaki, shows how this distortion continues to be expressed:
 
"We must understand why Israel was established … [The Europeans] wanted to get rid of the Jews. … At that same time, energy [oil] was discovered in the Arab region … Then, they solved the [Jewish] problem by exporting [the Jews] to Israel [and at same time] they imposed their hegemony on the region’s natural resources. The [purpose of the] State of Israel is not for the Jews but it is an ongoing [colonial] project, an outpost for Imperialism.”

Op-ed in PA daily refers to Israel's founding as a "plot to establish a racist Zionist entity," calls Israel "the cancerous entity" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Nov. 29, 2018
Excerpt of an op-ed by Dr. Fawzi Ali Al-Samhouri 

      “Nov. 29, 1947 was the [first] practical international step to execute the plot to establish a racist Zionist entity on 55% of the territory of historical Palestine. For the Palestinian people – which has the right, the land, and the homeland – only 45% of its homeland was left in order to establish its Arab state, according to [UN] Partition Resolution No. 181…  On Dec. 2, 1977, the UN General Assembly decided to designate November 29 – the same day that the ominous partition resolution was made – as an International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.
Three decades after the partition resolution, the UN published its resolution for the following reasons and factors:
As a result of the partition resolution, millions of members of the Palestinian people live in the diaspora as refugees since Palestine was taken over in 1948.
The military, political, and financial support of the world powers, and particularly the US, for the cancerous entity enabled it to occupy the rest of Palestine following the aggression of June 1967.”

PLO official: “Jews… knew only to make money, trade, weave plots, corruption… The European nations and Russia were sick of them”

Official PA TV program
Palestine This Morning, on the Balfour Declaration

Palestinian National Council member Najib Al-Qaddumi: "Indeed, this is an ominous day, and it is considered a day of mourning for us because the so-called 'State of Israel' was established by way of this promise. The Israeli entity was established. The Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration) was the cornerstone for the establishment of this renegade state. However there is no choice but to return to the background behind the publication of this promise by then British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour. We will return to the situation of the Jews in Europe and Russia, when they lived in a closed society and knew only to make money, trade, weave plots, corruption, and such. Even the European nations and Russia were sick of them and longed for when they would leave their country."

PA daily op-ed to Jewish Israelis: “You are victims of a plan of fraud” by the “colonial powers” since Balfour “made a promise to your foreign forefathers who have no right to the land of our homeland Palestine”

Excerpt of op-ed by Muwaffaq Matar, a Fatah Revolutionary Council member and regular columnist for the official PA daily

     "With the passing of 100 years since the Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration), the message must be conveyed to the Jewish Israelis, and particularly those among them who were and still are victims of systematic fraud. We say to them with full sincerity: You are victims of a plan of fraud by the greatest colonial powers in the world, since British Foreign Secretary [Arthur] Balfour made a promise to your foreign forefathers who have no right to the land of our homeland Palestine, and until [US President Donald] Trump, who promised you to destroy our spirit, our culture, and our identity when he realized his promise to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of your state… Jewish Israelis, what you need to know is that Great Britain scorned your human value when it used your forefathers as a colonial pawn in the region. That is what Balfour did, who whispered to you unprecedented hatred and prevented you from seeking refuge in Britain during the period when you fled from the rest of Europe. All Balfour did was to export your problem to our land, and colonialist Britain did indeed succeed in using you. Today, Donald Trump is using you so that he will be able to execute his colonialist agenda."

“[Europe] was sick of the behavior of the Jews and planned to get rid of them” - PA Minister of Education posts video explaining Balfour Declaration  
Source: Facebook page of PA Minister of Education Sabri Saidam, Nov. 2, 2018

Posted text:
"101 years since the ominous promise (i.e., the Balfour Declaration), and soon a year since the new ominous promise (i.e., US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem and promise to transfer the US embassy to it). Here is a simple explanation of the Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration) for its anniversary, which is today [Nov. 2, 2018]"

Narrator: "The nightmare was created by Britain and was realized on the land of Palestine. Britain gave a right which it did not have to one not entitled to it: [A right] to our land in the form of a state, which is now known as 'Israel' …
It was said that the old continent [Europe] was sick of the behavior of the Jews at the time, and therefore it planned to get rid of them. It was also said that Israel’s establishment would guarantee the division of the region for the West, and give it a foothold in the Arab homeland, which was afterwards called 'The Middle East'…
British Foreign Secretary at the time Arthur James Balfour stabbed a dagger into the soft belly of Palestine. He took upon himself a promise from one without ownership to one not entitled, as if he was the owner of the land and not a colonialist…
This is just a drop in the sea of Britain's crimes against our people, whose existence it has insisted on denying despite its Phoenician and Canaanite roots."

Song on PA TV to Britain: “We will erase the memory of the Balfour Declaration;” "We are rooted in this land from the days of the Canaanites"

Song “Listen Balfour, Listen” performed by Qassem Al-Najjar and Shadi Al-Burini

Lyrics: “O Balfour, years have gone
Generations have gone until now
You have gone and others have gone, yet this is the land of Palestine
Regardless of the time that passes, we will erase the memory of this [Balfour] Promise
Listen Balfour, listen
The right of my land will yet return
We bow only to Allah
We are the Palestinians…
We are your owners, Palestine
And we are rooted in this land from the days of the Canaanites
We have identity
Palestine’s history is great, Jerusalem is ours and no one else’s
Regardless of your efforts to falsify, this land is Palestinian…
O British man, listen up
You must apologize to us
This homeland is ours, and not the Zionists’
You deprived my precious homeland
You stole the right to my land and gave it to the Zionist
This is an international crime
Balfour [of] the ominous promise committed a crime against my oppressed people
We will not be silent from this day forward, we will not forget the cause"

Palestinian girl Nour:
"A Zionist stole the land of Palestine,
War, destruction, murder, and wailing,
We were uprooted and the world called us refugees (i.e., in 1948),
We have sacrificed millions of Martyrs for the sake of your return, Palestine…
We said a year, two years – they have become 70 (i.e., since Israel's creation in 1948),
Rebel, rebel, O people of the giants,
And shoot with your fire, like volcanoes,
So Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] will return to us, O Muslims…
And Allah willing we will be victorious, and everyone will be witnesses,
We are returning. By Allah, we are returning,
Even if the entire world gives up on you, your children won’t, O Palestine…”
Official PA TV host of The Best Home: “Bravo! […] I want to tell you, as my friend Nour has said, we are returning. Soon, Allah willing, we will return to our land… Every one of us can resist the occupation wherever he is, and in our different ways so we can bring back Palestine. Children, are we capable of bringing it back? Are you sure? Good.”

PA TV portrays Israel as foreign colonial occupier, claims ancient Jewish history is Palestinian 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Oct. 30, 2018

The PA TV video shows a woman who represents "ancient Palestinians" (or possibly Muslims) going through the history of the land - replacing the Jewish people's actual history. The woman is introduced in a peaceful scene feeding birds in a period predating the Roman conquest of Judea and destruction of the Temple in 70 CE. Suddenly the scene is disturbed, the birds scatter and the woman runs away from various foreign invaders: first an ancient Roman soldier, then a Crusader, then a British soldier, and finally a Jew (wearing a skullcap), who throws a lit cigarette at her.
In the final scene, the woman stops fleeing when a man on a horse - the "new" Muslim conqueror Saladin who defeated the Crusaders - extends his hand and helps her up the mountain. He represents the coming savior who will "liberate Palestine" from Jewish-Israeli rule. In the end, the woman stands on the top of the mountain, fleeing no one anymore, symbolizing that Israel is gone like the other foreign rulers.

"I say this to everyone – the salaries of our Martyrs, prisoners, and wounded are a red line. They [Israel] try by all means, and exert pressure by all means, and they continue to exert: 'It cannot be that you will pay.' And they’ll even deduct our money that’s in their hands. They’ll deduct from it the amount that we pay to the Martyrs. We have said that this is a red line and we will not allow [it]. From 1965 until now, this matter is sacred to us. The Martyrs and their families are sacred, [and so are] the wounded and the prisoners. We must pay all of them. If one penny remains in our hands it is for them and not for the living."

Abbas’ advisor in sermon: Balfour Declaration was “despicable act of oppression;” denies Jewish connection to land or to Jerusalem, which was founded by “us, the Jebusite Canaanite Arabs;” attacks the US

Mahmoud Al-Habbash: "More than 100 years ago a despicable act of oppression befell the Palestinian people, in which one who has no [right] gave a promise to one who does not deserve it, (i.e., the Balfour Declaration) about land to which they have no connection – land that they acknowledged was not theirs, and that they have no right to… except for a sentimental connection… But the oppression occurred, and the world conspired against the Palestinian people, and this people was uprooted 70 years ago, at the time of the Nakba (i.e., “the catastrophe,” the Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel).... We and the world have seen the completion of the sins, the completion of the sin of Palestine’s Nakba, in that America came to transfer its embassy [to Jerusalem] and to falsely say… that it is the eternal capital of the Jewish people. This is what they are saying about Jerusalem! As if Jerusalem has no people, and has no owners, and as if it has no people, and as if they are the ones who built it; even though the facts of history determine that those who built Jerusalem are us, the Jebusite Canaanite Arabs, and they gave it its name, and they set it as their capital (sic., archaeological finds have proven a Jewish role in building and developing Jerusalem; the Jebusites and Canaanites were not Arabs)… The one responsible for all of this is first of all the USA.

Headline: “70 years of occupation – we will remain and we will struggle”

The day after Nakba Day – which commemorates “the catastrophe” of Israel’s establishment – the official PA daily dedicated an entire page to images from various violent Palestinian riots in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank. Rioters can be seen burning Israeli and American flags, waving Palestinian flags, preparing tires to be burned, treating wounded, and confronting Israeli security forces.

Palestinians commemorate Nakba Day on May 15, the day after the establishment of Israel. On May 15, 1948, combined forces from Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Iraq joined local Arab forces in an attempt to eradicate the newly established State of Israel. The Nakba (Arabic = catastrophe) refers to the establishment of Israel, and the subsequent defeat in the war, including the killing and displacement of Arab civilians that occurred during the war.

Those who were present at the inauguration ceremony of Trump’s embassy in Jerusalem are partners in a war crime…
Trump believes in the ability of the leaders of Israel to put an end to the Palestinian existence, as his ancestors did to the Indians, but did they tell him that 100 years of massacres, wars, terror, expulsion, and organized attacks against the Palestinian people have only strengthened the Palestinians’ connection to their eternal homeland... This man needs rehabilitation in a mental hospital or to be hospitalized in an asylum, because if he remains free, the world will see how he enjoys and takes pleasure like no other while the world goes up in the flames of his sadism and naivety!”
