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.”

PA TV portrays Israel as foreign colonial occupier, claims ancient Jewish history is Palestinian 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Aug. 30, 2014
The PA TV video shows a woman who apparently 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.

Official PA daily: Israel is a "colonialist, settler and Orientalist state, ‎which fabricated a historical narrative in ‎order to colonize Palestine‎"

Op-ed by Izz Al-Din As'ad
     ‎“IS was‎ a pawn of Israeli-American ‎intelligence, meant to fulfill the dream of ‎the Jewish state…‎
The danger in a religious state is evident ‎to all groups of a people’s ethnic and ‎religious minorities, given that the Islamic ‎State – represented ‎ by IS – has ‎imposed a poll tax on the Iraqi Christians, ‎and fought other Muslims – both Sunni ‎and Shiite – under the pretext of [their] ‎having forsaken Islam and [committed] ‎heresy. In other words, a religious state, ‎whatever the religion may be, is based on ‎an ideology of exclusion, inequality, ‎injustice…‎
Every religious state has fought and will ‎always fight other religious and ethnic ‎minorities in order to expel them from the ‎country. This is what happened in Serbia, ‎this is what is being carried out in Iraq by ‎IS, and this is what may happen to the ‎Palestinians in Israel, both Muslims and ‎Christians, if the dream of the Jewish state ‎is fulfilled…‎
Establishing a Jewish state means the ‎Jewish territory controlled by the Jewish ‎state will be land for Jews only. In the ‎Palestinian case, this is a complex issue, ‎because this state is a colonialist, settler ‎and Orientalist state, which fabricated a ‎historical narrative in order to colonize ‎Palestine. It will act forcefully to destroy ‎the Arab society in Palestine, which was ‎colonized in 1948. This may amount to the ‎expulsion of the Palestinians living in ‎Jerusalem, in order to cleanse the Jewish ‎state of the ‘gentiles’ – the Jewish term for ‎non-Jews…‎
The creation of IS, the outlining of its ‎strategy... contribute ‎dangerously to the realization of the idea ‎that Israel is a Jewish state.''

PLO Executive Committee member Hanan Ashrawi: "Look at the most dangerous thing that Obama said to [New York Times journalist] Thomas Friedman.

He adopted it when he came to this region, speaking about the Jews' return to their land, and that this is a Jewish state, the Zionist dream, and so on. Obama's adoption of the discourse of extremist Zionist ideology and his turning it into a basis for political decision-making is dangerous."

Israel is a “cancerous entity which can only be cured by leaving our land” – PA daily op-ed

     "The abhorrent sectarianism (i.e., wars in Iraq and Syria) is burning everything...
Israel - a product of myth, racism and war - believes that the conflagration in the region gives it a free hand and respite, and that the flames won't reach it. It therefore continues to kill, burn, destroy and attack, in all the forms inappropriate to human beings. Its leaders forget that these flames are burning because of it, and will be directed towards it in the end.
Israel's racist and extremist leadership has not learned its lesson. For over 60 years now, it has been killing, causing [people] to flee, expelling, taking prisoners, winning wars and annexing lands. But in reality, it is in crisis, because it has not succeeded in extinguishing the flames in the soul of the Palestinian...
The Israeli lives in the helmets of the soldiers of myth, who are killers and savages...
With the excuse of the disappearance of three settlers (i.e., On June 12, 2014, three Israeli teens were kidnapped while hitchhiking in the West Bank) who were on a land which did not belong to them, while robbing and challenging the owners of the land, Israel does as it pleases in the West Bank, and threatens Gaza... The Palestinian, with [his] Arab loyalty and identity which knows no sectarianism, confronts Israel. He observes with sadness the flames that surround him and that divert the people of the Arab nation from the duty of the basic and central confrontation, which is with the barbaric Israel. He looks forward to the day when the flames of [this] abhorrent sectarianism will be extinguished, so that everyone will be free to bury the [Israeli] myth that is being lived by the bloodthirsty, helmet-clad and rifle-bearing soldier."

Israel lives on an extensive system of British Mandatory laws, illusory biblical maps, hallucinations from the time of the Babylonian or Roman exile for which not a single proof exists, and on acts borrowed from the Nazis, which the Israelis are now imitating against the Palestinian people...
Naturally, there are millions of examples of how Israel lives in contradiction with itself. It demands recognition of a Jewish state, even though the entire world knows that its two biggest waves of immigration at the end of the last century, from Russia and the former Soviet Union, and (Ethiopian Jews) from the region of the Falash Mura ... included hundreds of thousands of Christians, Muslims and pagans, who have no connection to the Jewish state. Furthermore, important and highly reliable contemporary historians have proven that the most important Zionist activists, especially in Eastern Europe, were of Khazar origin, with no relationship to the so-called 12 Jewish tribes! ...
Legalizing the illegal, legitimizing the illegitimate, presenting history in a one-sided way, and howling like mad wolves - this is what Netanyahu is doing at the head of his present government, in an insane race against time, clearly loathing everyone and misanalysing what is happening in the region and in the world."

Official PA daily: Israel’s creation was a “crime against humanity” and “international conspiracy” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 15, 2014
Op-ed by Muwaffaq Matar, regular columnist for Al-Hayat Al-Jadida
     “The attempt on the part of [Israel’s] new leaders to extract recognition from the leadership of the Palestinian people that Israel is Jewish or that Israel is the state of the Jews, [amounts to] an insistence on falsifying the historical facts and events; Israel’s political leaders and other intellectuals seem as if they were trying to change the direction of the earth’s rotation. The Palestinian refugees’ right of return depends on the free decision and personal will of [each] Palestinian refugee, as it is a sacred human right which no power in the world can prevent its possessor from realizing. In addition, it is a right which will never become obsolete…
May 15, 1948 was and remains the date of a crime against humanity which has been going on for 66 years; this day is the essence and the symbol of a huge international conspiracy aimed at putting an end to the existence of a tranquil, peace-loving people. This was the day in which Israel was used as an occupation state and spearhead [against the Palestinian people].”

Official PA TV newsreader: “The land is still calling its owners to [realize] the right of return – in Haifa, Jaffa, Acre, Lod, Ramle and dozens of other cities and hundreds of villages. The bats of darkness have woven the despicable threads of the Nakba against the legal owners of the land; it [the Nakba] was no transient war or battle between two equal armies, but a red bloodbath [perpetrated] against our defenseless people.”

Yemenite Jew: “Ishmael.”
Film narrator: “Ishmael. We are…”
Yemenite Jew: “Brothers.”
Film narrator: “But you weren’t here in the land. You came here, then left again, isn’t that so? You passed through, and didn’t settle here. The people of the land are the Canaanites, right?”
Yemenite Jew: “Right, before…”

[School principal] Abd Al-Latif said: ‘This anniversary proves to us that the refugee camps are temporary and that we will return to the places from which we were expelled. We will return to our land from which we were expelled when the so-called State of Israel was established.’
[Culture Ministry Bureau Chief Muntasir] Al-Kam noted that the screening took place as part of the [Culture] Ministry’s program to encourage the audio-visual field through the screening of documentary films at various national and cultural events, since these films are a part of resistance on the ideological level, at a time when the Zionist entity’s schemes to destroy the Palestinian cause and steal its history and identity – and not just the land – are gaining momentum.”

Op-ed in official PA daily: Israel is a "monstrosity" and its establishment is "a crime unprecedented in history" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 7, 2014
Op-ed by regular columnist Baha Rahal in the official PA daily:
     "Sixty-six years ago, a monstrosity was born, which grew over the ruins of an entire people, which had been expelled from its land and homeland, and its name became Israel. This monstrosity has an army that defeated the armies of the region in six days or less, and it has a language whose letters were put together without patterns and without meaning, and which is abnormal, lacking rules or order. It has a flag with two stripes, and in the middle a stolen star...
These days, pain is tearing the hearts of all Palestinians. Their pain is the same wherever they are - whether in their homeland, in the refugee camps in the diaspora in the neighboring countries, or in countries on all five continents, where they were scattered in the wake of the great Nakba ("catastrophe," the Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel) which befell them unjustly and against their will.
The Zionist gangs invaded the land of Palestine and expelled its residents before the eyes and ears of the world - which didn't lift a finger - and specifically the powers at the time, which gave the Zionist gangs cover and eased their despicable mission, and afforded them all means of assistance. This was a crime unprecedented in history... The Nakba befell our people 66 years ago, when the Zionist gangs were fighting each other to conquer Palestine, using the Balfour Declaration as a pretext, as if it were a divine promise, as if Balfour had the right to make the promise in the first place...
The occupation of Palestine was the greatest crime known to humanity. Since that time, the Palestinian people has been confronting these gangs using all the means and methods at its disposal, to regain the stolen right, waiting for the long-awaited day, adhering to its right of return, and holding firm to its land and its homeland."

He said that Hamas ‘rejects the Quartet’s conditions, because they detract from the rights of the Palestinian people.’ He added: ‘We rejected, still reject and will continue to reject any condition that detracts from Palestinian rights. Hamas will remain loyal to the right of return of the refugees and to liberation.’”

PA TV newsreader: “Even as Israel commemorates the day known as Jewish Holocaust Day, it perpetrates a new Holocaust each day against our people; it persecutes them, discriminates and treats them with racism.”
[Photographs of Hitler and images from the period of the foundation of Israel (Ben Gurion, war images, etc.) appear in the background during the report]:
PA TV narrator: “Even as the Israelis commemorate Holocaust Day – which all human conventions denounce and condemn because it is contrary to the nature of all mankind – our people remember the holocausts and massacres committed by the descendants of the survivors of the Holocaust [perpetrated by] Nazi Germany. Israel has not learned the lesson from what happened to them and to other human beings. To the contrary, during its wars it carried out executions, murdered civilians, bombarded buildings with missiles, burned Arab villages in 1948 and set up detention camps. Between massacres, Tel Aviv established its control and occupation of this land, to compensate for its losses and for the suffering caused by Hitler’s Germany and the rest of the world, where they had been persecuted and discriminated against. The strange thing is that the occupation state copied these racist acts, and gave our people, the owners of this land, a taste of them, in order to prove historical fables and promises that exist in their extremist minds alone, about a land without a people for a people who never owned this land… Decades later, the situation has not changed, and Tel Aviv is still making our people taste tragedy – by oppressing the Palestinian people and undermining its awareness of its tragedy, in which Tel Aviv plays the part of the executioner."

     "The leaders of the Zionist state, from their first prime minister, David Ben Gurion, to the present day, from the right to the left, agree that historical Palestine is 'Israel's homeland'... This [claim is] based on the fabricated biblical and Talmudic tales. All this points to an Israeli fortress mentality, which is faithful to the Zionist heritage, which is based on racism, arrogance and the lie of 'the chosen people,' and based on the 'Masada complex' - a fear of recurrence of the 7 years of a Roman army siege which forced the Jewish men in the fortress to make a strange decision that no reasonable person throughout history has ever understood: to kill their women, children and elders and then commit suicide...
Israel and peace are opposites. This [Israel] is a state that surrounds itself with physical and psychological concrete walls that are ingrained in the Jewish mentality, which is based on rejection and fear of the other, and which sees the solution in expanding the construction of the fortress walls. Even the racist separation fence, in addition to being a kind of 'apartheid', recalls the tradition of the Jewish ghetto in Europe. Therefore, one can say that Israel's recourse to building the fence stems from reasons connected to the internal psychological structure of the Israeli character, which was formed in the shadow of the Jewish ghetto worldview."

     “On this great day, March 30, 1976, the Palestinians proclaimed their adherence to their land and their readiness to sacrifice everything to protect the land of their forefathers. This day is justly called ‘Land Day’…
After the owners of the land – the residents of the Galilee and the Triangle (a concentration of Israeli-Arab towns and villages adjacent to the Green Line in northern Israel) – revolted against the Israeli authorities, who had expropriated thousands of dunams in the region of the Galilee and the Triangle… the Zionist enemy forces invaded the villages with the aid of tanks and armored vehicles. They started shooting at the defenseless residents, who had revolted to protect the land and to thwart the plot to Judaize the Galilee…
You won’t find a single Palestinian, [whether] man or woman, old or young, who will agree to cede a single grain of dust from the land of Palestine. As the scheme to Judaize the Galilee was thwarted in the past, so the current ‘Jewish state’ scheme will be thwarted too. This is an overtly racist slogan, and with its implementation, our brethren in [the part of] Palestine occupied in 1948 (i.e., Israel) will be expelled from their forefathers’ land, and the sons of Palestine in the diaspora will be prevented from returning to their land and homes, whence they were expelled in 1948 by force of arms…

In its statement, Fatah’s Shabiba said that Netanyahu and his right-wing government should learn from history, which has proven at every stage that nations yearning for freedom, justice and independence inevitably achieve victory, and that occupation, racism and darkness are fated to vanish. It [the movement] noted in its statement that every olive tree and every speck of dust in Jerusalem, Jaffa, Acre, Safed, Nablus, Ramallah, Hebron, Gaza and all of Palestine recognizes the true owners of the land, for Palestinian land is alive and knows its original inhabitants, and knows who the new invaders are. [The message also stated that] the Nakba (“the catastrophe,” the Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel) of our people, their expulsion from their villages and cities and the destruction of [their] villages over 66 years ago, will not erase the facts nor change the true face of the land."

Non-recognition terminology on PA TV: "Palestine occupied since ’48"

Official PA TV Live broadcast a conference about “Kerry, Palestine, and the Jewish State, from a Palestinian and International Perspective. The conference was held at the An-Najah University in Nablus. Israeli-Arab MP Ahmad Tibi was among the participants.
Dr. Hassan: “My question to you, Dr. [Tibi, is]: In view of this situation, it is clear that Israel is trying to erect a fortified wall against the establishment of a single, democratic state (i.e., the one-state solution)? You are Palestinians from Palestine occupied since ’48 (i.e., Israel); what is your position on this issue?”...
Israeli-Arab MP Ahmad Tibi: "We, I, in terms of political and national interests, if they offer us the single state [ie: granting all Arabs between the Mediterranean and the Jordan river Israeli citizenship] - [well,] at least that’s my only chance of becoming prime minister of Israel – if its name stays the same [Israel]. In the first round [of elections], we will keep the name [Israel] as is. So it’s no coincidence that they refuse to cooperate fully on the one-state solution.”

     “These days, the occupiers have reached the height of their rampage in their parliament, which is populated by a handful of crazy people reinforced by fairy tales and bundles of dreams, not a single letter of which has been proven true by a single stone of Jerusalem…
Each day, they come out with a new refrain that not [even] the first Zionists before them could have imagined, and pretend that their alleged Temple stood exactly at the site of the Al-Aqsa Mosque…
Recognizing the ‘Jewishness of the State’ is an implicit confirmation that the refugees have no rights, that we stole ourselves a homeland and have not been [living] on our ancestors’ land for thousands of years. If the Jews were indeed present [here] for a short period in the history of our land, that presence was not along the coast, nor in the north or south of Palestine. In other words, the Jews never passed through or were present in the territories which the peace process firmly defines as being outside the negotiations and [designates] as Israeli territory.”

But then, they will say to us, ‘you are the maid’s sons, and the maid cannot bequeath [property] nor can [her property] be inherited…’ And the truth is clear and there is no need for too much analysis. Deep down, they understand that we are the true owners of the land, and that we were born here thousands of years before them; that they have no right to be here and that, in the eyes of the world and history, they are nothing but an ephemeral occupying force – no more, no less. Therefore, they want to extract a legitimization of their presence from us, which will protect them and grant them a right they don’t have, from those with the original right.”

Fatah Central Committee member Dr. Jamal Muhaisen:
“We demand that all the lands conquered in [19]67 be under Palestinian control. As I said, the exchange [of territories] will be in the border areas, not in Jerusalem. When you talk about what is known as the ‘Al-Buraq Wall’ (i.e. The Western Wall of the Temple Mount), even the British committee that came to Palestine in the 1930s and examined the issue found that this is the ‘Al-Buraq Wall’ and not the ‘Wailing Wall.’ For this reason, we repeat that any site with a connection to the religious aspect – we believe in freedom of religion and in people’s [right to] visit the religious sites. However, so far, none of the archeologists, not [even] the Israeli ones, have proved the existence of a single remnant of the Israeli side in the places claimed to be theirs. I repeat: we will only agree to all [parts] of Jerusalem conquered in ’67 being a part of the Palestinian state and the capital of the State of Palestine.

Note: The 1930 Wailing Wall Commission was appointed by the British government, with the approval of the League of Nations, to settle the matter of the Jews’ and Muslims’ rights and claims to the Western Wall. The commission concluded that the Western Wall had served as a Jewish holy site long before it became a Muslim Waqf (an inalienable religious endowment in Islamic law) and that it had never served the Muslims for religious purposes. The commission’s final conclusion was that the Western Wall was holy only to the Jews and therefore they should be granted free access to worship at the site.

A review of documents published by the organization that summarized previous conferences shows that another normalization meeting had been held in Tel Aviv this past December 28 and 29 [2013]...
Regarding occupied Jerusalem, the document [written by Minds of Peace] says that ‘East Jerusalem’ will be transferred to Palestinian control, while ‘West Jerusalem’ will remain under Israeli control, as will what are referred to as ‘the Jewish neighborhoods of East Jerusalem,’ which will be exchanged with the Palestinians for other territories.

They describe their beauty and their glory, their mosques, their vineyards. They describe for us their olives and [tell us] how everything in them is beautiful. They explain to us that they and the antiquities in them are a symbol of the Palestinian presence, and that this is Palestinian land and not Israeli land. They [Israelis] occupied it, and I want to say to them that if I were to ask a soldier 'What is your homeland?' he wouldn’t say to me 'Palestine.' He would say to me 'Israel.' Excuse me, he would say 'America' or 'Europe.' He leaves his homeland to conquer another homeland?”

We know well that they… will leave our holy olive tree one day, [the olive tree] which they uprooted from the soil they claim to own!
They have never understood that God gave this land to those who were born on it, those who have lived on it, those whose fathers were buried in it, and to those who were compelled to migrate by force by those who came and claimed the land was desolate. This is the land of those who have loved it, breathed its air, embraced its trees and wept over any damage done to its soil…"

Fatah official uses non-recognition terminology: “Palestinian Interior"

An episode of the PA TV program Palestine this Morning discussed the role of women in Palestinian society and hosted Fatah Central Committee member Amal Hamad.
Fatah Central Committee member Amal Hamad: “…I wanted to move on to the topic of Dalal Mughrabi because she led a quality operation (i.e., terror attack) in the Palestinian Interior (i.e., Israel). She killed dozens of Israeli army officers, and she was the leader of this operation. She led men. She is a source of pride in her struggle, her history, her giving and her sacrifice. The woman was a [role] model in the national struggle and this role model is now being copied, and [students] learn about it at the world’s universities.”

Notes: Dalal Mughrabi - led the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history in 1978, when she and other terrorists hijacked a bus and killed 37 civilians, 12 of them children.

This is a very heavy price, but it is an appropriate price, because countries that respect themselves go to war for their sons’ freedom. These are Palestine’s heroes, who spent more than 20 years in Israeli prisons, and the time has come to release them, regardless of their geographic or political affiliation. There are 14 brothers from the 1948 [territories] (i.e., Israel), 10 from Jerusalem, 11 from the Islamic Jihad, 13 from Hamas, 7 from the Popular Front [for the Liberation of Palestine, PFLP], 21 from [various] organizations and 54 from the Fatah Movement. We agreed that they will be released without deportation, banishment or changing of their location, and if Israel denies these agreements, our alternative will be to turn to international institutions.’”

Note: In August 2013, Israel agreed to release 104 Palestinian terrorists from prison, which was the PA's precondition for renewing peace talks. The terrorists were released in stages. The first group of 26 was released on Aug. 13, 2013. The second group of 26 was released on Oct. 30, 2013.

Regarding the former ‎‎(the ‘carrot’ measures), the European ‎Union took care to emphasize that it would ‎provide financial and economic support on ‎various levels if the two-state solution ‎within the June 4, 1967 borders is reached. ‎At the ‘stick’ level, it threatened to blame ‎Israel for the failure of the negotiations due ‎to the continuation of the settlement ‎‎[project].

The real reasons for the disagreement in ‎Israel about a citizenship that would ‎define the national identity of the state ‎and its citizens, from among the national ‎identities offered – Israeli, Jewish and ‎Hebrew – arise from huge historical, legal ‎and religious obstacles, which prevent ‎Israeli identity from being used as the ‎national identity of the Zionist state and its ‎citizens… ‎

This Talmud was written thousands of ‎years ago, ‘in the ancient Palestinian ‎Jewish Aramaic language,’ meaning the ‎language of the Canaanite Palestinians. ‎It’s enough for us to know that the name ‎of the Israeli newspaper, The Jerusalem ‎Post, was, from its founding in 1932 until ‎the establishment of the Zionist state in ‎‎1948, The Palestine Post.’”‎

From an article by Adli Sadeq, PLO Ambassador to India and regular columnist for the official PA daily.
     “A group of our patriotic young people from Fatah preempted our patriotic publicists (yours truly among them) in suggesting an original idea: filing a lawsuit against Britain, which gave Zionism the traitorous and ominous Balfour Promise (i.e., the Balfour Declaration.)… For Britain to save itself in the face of German might during World War I, the Lloyd George government pinned its hopes on the United States’ entering the war as part of the British alliance. Balfour believed that only Chaim Weizmann could convince American President Woodrow Wilson. The pay for Zionist service to the Lloyd George government… was its issuing a promise of “a national home” (for the Jews) in our land, Palestine. Palestine was most appropriate in the eyes of a racist and imperialist person who was afraid that the Jews would move to Britain itself in large numbers. He wanted them to be of service to Britain -- outside the old continent (Europe). Herein lays the foundation for the British crime against the Palestinian nation and its homeland. This is the crime that must continuously be brought before international political and legal forums, especially because Britain continues to support Israel, and refused to recognize our right to be a non-member state at the UN on 22% of our historic homeland!”

The “’Israeli’ entity… has no legitimacy or right to exist on Palestinian land” 
Source: Zayzafuna magazine, Nov. 1, 2013
Op-ed by Muhammad Jaradat, reviewing the Israeli film “Lemon Tree”:
     “After watching Israeli director Eran Riklis’ Israeli film ‘Lemon Tree’, I tried to identify the picture depicted by the movie’s director and its heroes. I came to the conclusion that this is Israeli cinema’s new way of portraying the nature of the conflict that has been raging for more than 65 years. [In this portrayal] the image of an ideal Jew [appears], peace-loving and merciful, who loves everyone, especially his Palestinian neighbors – as long as those neighbors don’t start a fight with him – as if the Palestinians are the reason for everything that has happened since 1948 and that is still happening; as if the Palestinians are the ones who attacked Jews, set fire to their cities and villages and carried out ethnic cleansing in them, and not the Hagana, Stern and Palmach gangs (i.e., Jewish pre-state armed defense units)!
Despite all this, the Israeli director does identify with the peaceful Palestinian who does not harm the State of Israel, but whose rights are still violated and whose land is stolen under the pretext of [providing] security and protection to Israeli citizens…
The [Israeli-Palestinian] problem, as the Israeli Left presents it, stems from the terrorists – the legitimate Palestinian resistance – whose presence will prevent an Arab-Israeli bond and peaceful coexistence. As if the problem did not stem fundamentally from the existence of an ‘Israeli’ entity, which has no legitimacy or right to exist on Palestinian land, and which is the reason for all this destruction and the root of the problems.”

The movement saw the release of the second phase of veteran, pre-Oslo Accords prisoners as an important step on the way to releasing all the prisoners – ‘This release serves as a distinct national achievement because the released prisoners belong to many Palestinian factions. In addition, the next two phases will also include prisoners from our people in the 1948 territories (i.e., Israel).’
The movement called on the Palestinian people to welcome the released prisoners en masse, as the brave fighters should be welcomed, as a strong message proving that the Palestinian people does not forget its fighter prisoners and that breaking the veteran prisoners’ chains bodes well for the freedom of all the prisoners, who are on the way of freedom and independence.”

True, there are circumstances that can sometimes dictate the form of struggle. At one time or another, the time may be right or wrong for it (i.e., for a certain form of struggle). But ultimately, if the Palestinian negotiator goes [to negotiate] without an activity that supports him, and with no factors that support him, his position will be weak. We have no popular resistance, to speak frankly, and we have no armed resistance. We have what we obtained by appealing to the UN, which is [the ability] to approach international institutions and organizations…

We made a mistake when we lowered our demands and [agreed to] the 1967 borders. I say, we must return to no less than the [UN] Partition Plan. This is my opinion, and this is what we must tell people – because essentially the two-state solution is over and dead.”

     “The Fatah movement called yesterday [Oct. 10, 2013] for the Palestinian people to enlist en-masse and protect the Al-Aqsa Mosque in light of the ongoing invasions (the mere presence of Jews on the Temple Mount is considered an "invasion." However, all visitors are subject to rigorous security checks on the Israeli side before being granted access to the Temple Mount. – Ed.) and acts of desecration it is subject to by gangs of settlers and Jewish rabbis, [who are] protected by Israeli occupation soldiers.
In an announcement released by [Fatah’s] Information and Culture Commission, spokesman Ahmad Assaf said: ‘We urge our Palestinian people in Jerusalem and the Interior (i.e., Israel), as well as all West Bank residents capable of coming, to carry out Ribat (religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) in the Mosque and to protect it from the despicable plans directed against this holy place by what is called, ‘physical division and [division] according to time,’ until it is completely taken over.’”

Note: The “physical division and [division] according to time” refers to a proposed law (May 2013) being reviewed in Israeli Parliament that would allow for both Jews and Muslims to pray on the Temple Mount. The law seeks to implement separate prayer times for Muslims and Jews at the site.

The meeting will take place Monday, Nov. 4, 2013 in Portcullis House, in the Wilson room of the British Parliament. Speakers at the seminar [will include] Palestinian Ambassador to Britain Dr. Manuel Hassassian and several British politicians who supported and signed the campaign manifesto; and they are: Member of Parliament Jeremy Corbyn, members of the British House of Lords, Baroness Jenny Tonge and Lord Nazir Ahmed and others.
In addition, the campaign [organizers] will be represented at the meeting by the coordinator of the campaign in Europe and head of the media department at the Palestinian Return Center [PRC] Sameh Habeeb. It should be noted that the international campaign demanding an apology from Britain will run for five years and aspires to collect one million signatures by the hundredth anniversary of the ominous Balfour Declaration.”

Note: The Balfour Declaration of Nov. 2, 1917 was a letter from British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour to Baron Rothschild stating that “His Majesty's government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people” and is seen as the basis for later international commitments to establish the State of Israel.

Zionism was a colonialist movement; goal of Jewish immigration was expulsion of Palestinians 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 8, 2013
     “The national forces and national action factions condemned yesterday, Monday [Oct. 7, 2013] Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s statements about the situation in historical Palestine...
On this matter, Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Revolutionary Council Fahmi Al-Za’arir responded to the statements, saying that the occupation is the root of the trouble and conflict, and the source of catastrophes and tension in the Middle East, and that its negative influence reaches even the international political system.
In addition, he added that the purpose of the organized Jewish emigration to Palestine was to gain control of it, expel its inhabitants and exile them. This is indeed what happened during the Nakba (i.e., “the catastrophe,” Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel). He stressed that the occupation government’s behavior towards the settlers and its support of the settlement movement are an attempt to bring about a recurrence of the events that preceded the Nakba...
Member of the PLO Executive Committee and of the Popular Front political bureau, Tayseer Khaled said: ‘Netanyahu’s statements reflect an unprecedented wave of extremism and served as an official announcement on his part of the death of what is called ‘the peace process.’ Likewise, he [Khaled] stressed that these statements take us back again to a policy of negation of the other and negating the Palestinian people and its rights. This is what the Zionist movement based its policy and ideology on during the process in which it expanded and became a colonialist movement, which positioned itself from the start so as to be at colonialism’s service.”

The [PA] Ministry of Culture said in an announcement in honor of the event: ‘Our return to our heritage is a national duty and part of our long and arduous journey towards building a Palestinian state with original roots.’
It [the Ministry] added: ‘One after the other, colonialists and occupiers came at us, and our fathers had to struggle in order to remain, and we stand firm facing an occupier who attempts to destroy our national heritage, forge or steal it, thinking that stripping a nation of its heritage means making its national identity disappear and making its feelings of belonging to its homeland abate, and in this way eases [the process of] displacing and exiling it... 
Likewise, Zionization and Judaization of anything Palestinian is taking place, especially in Jerusalem and in the occupation’s territories of 1948 (i.e., Israel), such as [the Judaization of] clothing, food and songs.

So far 70 farms have been built at the Palestinian Arabs’ expense, for the purpose of ‘developing’ the Negev (Southern region of Israel). According to the Israeli plan’s estimate, work on the racist project will be completed in 2018 and the expected [cost] of its completion is 6 billion US dollars.
This new plan is a link in a continuous chain of ethnic cleansing acts against Palestinians and is not separate from what was begun by the colonialist Zionist project since the State of Israel was established in the year of the Palestinian Nakba (“the catastrophe,” the Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel) in 1948.”

Therefore, when confronted with peace, it ‎flees toward establishing a legalized racist ‎state. Those who favored the proposal to ‎grant the State of Israel a Jewish identity ‎in its Declaration of Independence justify ‎this by [claiming] that [the proposal] ‎doesn’t imply a state that is Jewish in the ‎religious sense, but only in a national ‎‎[sense], despite the fact that, from a ‎historic point of view, the [Jewish] ‎nation never existed. Ancient tribes, ‎including the Arameans, the Persians, the ‎Arabs, the Europeans, and the Khazars ‎adopted it [Judaism], and even today ‎people convert [to it]; [but] it is impossible ‎to call a religion a ‘nation.’ ‎

     “As you know, the poverty rate in the Gaza Strip is very high. In the Gaza Strip, as you know, there are no sources of income other than the Palestinian National Authority and a number of small, specialized workshops. There used to be workers who could get to the Gulf states and to Palestine occupied in 1948 (i.e., Israel). However after Israel didn’t fulfill its obligations of the Oslo Accords, and [now] prevents Palestinian workers from entering [the] 1948 [areas] (i.e., Israel) or any place outside of the Gaza Strip… the poverty rate in Gaza has risen.”

“Not a single remnant connects” Jews in Israel “to the land”

Article by Jihad Al-Khazen, originally published in the London paper Al-Hayat. It was republished in the op-ed section of Al-Hayat Al-Jadida:
     “The Canadian government is Israel’s ally, meaning it is the Arabs’ and the Muslims’ enemy – even if they deny it – since it supports the fascist, racist state that occupies Palestinian lands, kills, expels, and destroys…
I am amazed that the Canadian nation doesn’t lift a finger. Sarcasm is all I can come up with, and so I say to myself that the cold must prevent the Canadian citizen from thinking, and that allows his government to do as it pleases…
What appears above is my own personal opinion about Canada, its policies and its government.
I call on all Arab states, and the Islamic states along with them, to follow in the footsteps of Saudi Arabia and begin a gradual boycott of Canada.
But what is important about a boycott of Canada is that the Canadian citizen will [be able to] cover up with a blanket providing a little warmth, allowing him to ponder the situation where his government incites 1.5 billion Muslims from all over the world against his country…, just to establish relations with one occupation state of six million, when in all of Palestine there is not a single remnant that connects [those six million] to the land.”

     “Yesterday, [May 15, 2013] Jerusalem witnessed a national event such as it hasn’t witnessed for years: Hundreds of Jerusalem’s residents managed to mark Nakba Day (“the catastrophe,” the Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel) and sound their voices in the streets of Jerusalem with demonstrations the occupation was not able to suppress despite using repressive measures…
A young woman who participated in the demonstrations said that she had come from Lod in order to join Jerusalem’s residents in the Nakba [Day] events alongside scores of students from the Palestinian Interior…
The area around the Damascus Gate remained in the eye of the storm for several hours and some even saw this as a few hours of real freedom from the occupation forces, who were stunned by the extent of participation, determination and by the flags that continued to fly in front of the entrance to the historic Damascus Gate and the walls of Jerusalem…
During the confrontations yesterday, a group of Jews on their way from the Damascus Gate to the Al-Buraq Wall (i.e., the Western Wall of the Temple Mount) were attacked. Three of them were wounded after being beaten by several [Palestinian] youths. In addition, the occupation police confirmed that a few of its men were lightly wounded in skirmishes during the confrontations.
Despite the importance of the Jerusalem [residents’] protest activity, senior officials and faction leaders were completely absent from the arena and clearly, Jerusalem’s youth, its boys and its girls, are those who make the story and make history.”

Bakir: “Palestine is ours from ocean to ocean. It should continue to live in our memories, and we must bequeath this memory to future generations, just as we bequeath the land. And what they say -- that ‘The young will forget and the old will die’ -- obviously [this saying] has been proven wrong, because all those who die as Martyrs (Shahids) and struggle for Palestine belong to generations whose fathers and maybe even grandfathers weren’t born in Palestine and don’t know it (the land).”

Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 8, 2013
     "The order given by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to freeze construction in West Bank settlements may pave the way to a thaw in the frozen peace process, but it does not mean that Israel has acceded to Palestinian, Arab, or international demands. Quite the opposite. It constitutes a settlement trick... At the same time the so-called 'Ministerial Committee for Legislation' approved the outlines of the 'Prawer Law' that will bring about the expropriation of hundreds of thousands of acres and the uprooting of 35,000 Arab citizens from their homes and lands in the Negev. The significance is that the Netanyahu government has not decided to freeze settlement, but has transferred it to the Negev. This will bring about an explosion and a confrontation with the Palestinians in the interior (i.e., Israeli Arabs in Israel)."

The harm done to Jerusalem’s historical and cultural identity has received an additional and deeper dimension: The forgery of the city’s religious heritage and the attempt to blur and erase it by forcing it to conform to their [the Jews’] myths, claims and phony fables... We know how the Israeli authorities enlist intellectuals from different fields; artists, historians, and academics and host them each year so that they will write and compose stories and tales about their dreams regarding the holy city, for the purpose of molding their imaginary narrative and spreading their claim, which is disproved by reality…
We declare from here, from this place overlooking our Jerusalem, that Jerusalem will remain Palestinian-Arab. We will protect its identity with our lives and blood. These occupiers – besieging it now – must learn their lesson  from the invaders who preceded them, for Jerusalem knew us before it knew those invaders. Know that while you learned to love it by force through fairytales, we nursed our love for it with our mothers’ milk. You will recognize the truth just as did the invaders who preceded you, for we hold the right, Jerusalem is ours and we will restore its eternal splendor among us, as it has been throughout history.’”

But is it fate or an attempt to rectify history that the Palestinian revolution and the Fatah movement are celebrating 48 years since the Intilaqa (i.e., the ‘Launch’, term referring to the 1965 start of Fatah terror attacks) just after achieving statehood at the UN? Is this the preface to realizing the dream of a return to the land crying for its [true] owners who were forced to leave it by the Zionist gangs?
The heart forgets what the eye does not see, as the saying goes, but on the anniversary of the Palestinian revolution Palestinians did not forget the spark of that first bullet that reversed the equation. Many had thought that the Palestinian revolutionaries were despondent, and all that was left for them was to give up. [Then] a Fatah fedayeen (self-sacrificing fighter, someone prepared to die for a cause) squad infiltrated occupied Palestinian land (i.e., Israel) in January 1965 and blew up the Eilabun tunnel through which Jordan River water was being pumped to the Negev desert in order to build settlements to house Jewish immigrants…
Fatah Secretary in Nablus Mahmoud Shtayyeh told Al-Hayat Al-Jadida that the (Fatah) movement cannot forget our people’s Nakba in 1948 and give up on the Palestinian right of return, no matter what the conditions…”

Editor of official PA daily wrote a political opinion piece criticizing someone for using PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ statements about handing over keys for his own political purposes.
     “The story of the keys isn’t the President’s [Abbas’] invention. It is an echo of what [Israeli MP] Yossi Beilin called for eight months ago, and that Abbas rejected. The President is now using the same image to make clear that we’re fed up. His words mean: ‘You occupy the land. You stole the trunk and everything that’s in it. So we won’t agree to keep its key with us. We’ll throw it back in your face to prove that you stole, and we won’t allow anything to put a pretty face on your occupation.’
As far as the President’s opposition to a third Intifada, that’s his position in principle. Family members of 4,000 Martyrs who will die in this promised Intifada, are hoping the President will stick to it.”

They demanded that the British dignitaries and Arthur James Balfour’s descendants apologize for [the fact that] he promised to the Jews their [the Palestinians’] homeland on Nov. 2, 1917...
Omar Hantash... sent a letter to the present Foreign Minister, William Haig, in which he called on Haig to atone for his predecessor’s sin, and to admit that [Balfour’s] promise was a crime against the Palestinian people…
Suheib Darawshe wrote to Queen Elizabeth: ‘Because of your ancestor’s declaration and your political maps, we lost Haifa – my grandfather’s city – and its sea. If someone were to attack a British city, you would accuse him of terror, but we have been slaughtered a hundred times by terrorist gangs who founded the state that you recognize.’ …
The Tubas coordinator of the Ministry of Information, Abd Al-Basset Khalaf, said that the youngsters’ letters reflect the bitterness of the historic injustice that was done to them, and illustrate the wretched situation in which children suffer, since the occupation has imposed an oppressive routine [on their lives]… and has prevented them from living a free life like other children of the world.”

Note: The Balfour Declaration of Nov. 2, 1917 was a letter from British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour to Baron Rothschild stating that “His Majesty's government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people” and is seen as the basis for later international commitments to establish the State of Israel.

In Ramallah, Fatah described the Balfour Declaration as a crime of historic proportions against humanity, and stressed that Palestine is ‘the national home and land of the Palestinian people, and it is the historic and natural right [of the Palestinian people.]’ In a press release issued yesterday [Nov. 1, 2012] for the 95th anniversary of the ominous Balfour Declaration, Fatah’s Commission on Culture and Information said that ‘Our Palestinian people’s right to its national home and land will not be compromised by any statute of limitations or by establishing facts on the ground by the force of arms, the settling occupation.’
The press release went on to say: ‘Great Britain knew this very well on Nov. 2, 1917, the day its Foreign Minister Arthur Balfour promised British and European Jews that Palestine – the land of the Palestinian people – would be a national home for them, thus committing a historic crime against humanity that shames the human race and history.’..."

PA daily columnist Yahya Rabah:
     “November is upon us again, with its painful memories… In the beginning of the month Balfour made his ominous declaration in which someone with power, an oppressor who did not own [this land] or have any rights to it, made a promise to undeserving others (i.e., the Jews) who had been making capital out of its history (i.e., by claiming it was the ‘promised land’) in order to obliterate the Palestinian people’s very existence, its life and its land – all for the benefit of the Zionist movement that was to establish a state called ‘Israel’.
Later in November, the ominous signs continue. The Partition Plan was adopted [in that month], and the eternal Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat passed away after the attempt on his life with slow-acting poison. So whenever the November winds blow, Palestinian memory recalls wounds that still bleed and cause pain…
On the 15th of this month, we shall renew the promise we made, the promise to break free from the claws of this occupation, the most oppressive occupation in history.”

In so doing, the Zionist movement exploited the crimes of fascism and Nazism against the Jews in the Second World War, and [took advantage of] actions carried out by [Zionist] gangs against Jewish and Arab interests in Egypt, Iraq, Yemen, the Persian Gulf, Syria, Lebanon, and in the Arab Maghreb, all in order to cause [Jews] to move to Israel... Danny Ayalon, Avigdor Liberman, their Prime Minister, Netanyahu, the rest of the leaders of the most extremist coalition in the history of the Israeli state, and their American allies of the Democratic and Republican parties alike, must stop meddling in the most sensitive issue for Palestinians, because the basis of the national cause boils down to returning land [to its owners] and returning the refugees, who own the land."

Strangely, the West ignored the fact that this hybrid plant grew in soil whose inhabitants had been uprooted from it by the force of arms – [weapons] that the democratic West helped to supply, in order to build this new 'democracy' on the ruins of a society that had lived on its land for thousands of years…
The Iraqi Jewish writer and former Communist, Sami Michael, has sharply criticized the racist tendencies and the ethnic rift in Israel…
He said that 'Israel is in danger if the country's leadership fails to understand that Israel is located in the Middle East, and not at the end of the earth,' and added that 'Israel is the most racist country in the free world.’ Thus he awarded Israel certification as the most racist country, meaning, [Israel] is a “blood-cratic”; (‘dam–cratic’ dam=blood in Arabic) not a demo-cratic state.”

Scriptwriter on PA TV: Israel is "foreign entity" implanted in Greater Syria

     Yusuf: "Let's speak openly: I think that the Palestinian cause is fundamentally and essentially a Syrian matter, whether we like it or not. Let's start from the position that it's an Arab issue, or an issue which could be Islamic – or… cosmic. Since the Palestinian cause is an exceptional instance in history, it may be that it has no parallel other than the matter of the [American] Indians. Even the Indians – a great portion of them fled and managed. Obviously, [the Palestinian issue] is a cosmic, Arabic, regional, etc. matter. But in essence, at its foundation, it is a Syrian matter, since it [Palestine] is part of the Al-Sham region, part of Greater Syria."
PA TV interviewer: "In other words, you consider it [Palestine] as southern Syria? That's your logic? "
Yusuf: "I don't recognize [the] Sykes-Picot [agreement], I don't recognize the Balfour Declaration; I don't recognize the Faisal-Weizmann agreement… From before 1916 and until today, there are still [schemes] concerning this land which is called Syria, and which has effectively been divided, and has had land taken from it here and there and there, and unfortunately had this strange and deformed entity called Israel planted in it."

PA TV program Personal Encounter interviews writer and philosopher Maan Bashour. Program filmed in Beirut.
     Bashour: "Lebanon will not have rest so long as the Zionist cancerous growth exists in the body of the nation… It is not at all coincidental that high-level, senior Zionists have begun speaking, in recent years, about a world movement denying the legitimacy of the Zionist entity. One of the sources of power of the Zionist entity was [the fact of] its adoption by the world. Today, it has begun to lose that [support]. One of the elements of its [the Zionist entity’s] power was the distancing of the threat of struggle and resistance from its territory. It sent them (i.e., the struggle and resistance) outside of its borders, causing them to collide with the Arab reality and the Arab regimes. Today, it [the Zionist entity] confronts resistance – whether inside the Zionist entity or within the borders of occupied Palestine. Thus, this entity has begun to lose its foundations [of power]. Therefore I am optimistic that tomorrow I will see the Palestinian refugees as residents in the colonies that the Zionist settlers have built."

"Palestinianism vs. Zionism"
     "At the beginning of May, the English [online] newspaper Yediot Aharonot published an article by a Zionist full of hatred for Palestinians and Palestinianism, hostile towards peace and the solution of two states for two peoples on the borders on June 4, 1967: He is Moshe Dann, a Zionist writer and historian living in Jerusalem. Dann tried to incite against Palestinianism, to distort its real essence [as an ideology] which supports Palestinian nationalism, and tried to dress it in religious garb – even though everyone knows that Palestinian identity brings together all Palestinians, regardless of religion or ideological belief… Moshe Dann grew up in the midst of Zionist forgery and hypocrisy, and was nourished and fed with the racist Zionist ideas that were based on the Jewish religion in order to mislead Jews of different nationalities and to bring them into [Zionism's] furnace of colonial war, so as to serve its masters in the imperialist West. This was in order to spearhead the colonialist enterprise, with the aim of stealing the Arabs' resources and to act in a systematic and planned way to deepen rift and division among the peoples of the Arab nation, as a continuation of the Sykes-Picot conspiracy of 1916, and prior to that – the Campbell… Conference of 1905-1907. [In his article, Dann] wanted to reverse the picture and to dress the Palestinian national identity in Zionism's worn out, torn attire…
Moshe Dann's lies have been exposed by Prof. Shlomo Sand, Ilan Pappe, and other Jewish historians who have removed the mask from the real face of racist Zionism which is based on a narrative devoid of any foundation in history, because the Jews are not a nation, but rather members of different nations from all over the world, who believe in the Jewish religion."

(The Israeli Parliament’s Ethics Committee ruled that Ahmad Tibi used demeaning language when commenting on Israeli MP Anastassia Michaeli’s throwing a glass of water on another Arab MP. The suspension was not because of Tibi’s praise for Martyrs in his speech around the same time on Martyr’s Day in Ramallah as the paper indicates.) The participants emphasized that the fascism and racism, which are deeply rooted in Israeli society and its political system, continue to target the Arab population and its leaders… The [Central Committee's] press release added: 'We condemn vehemently this crazed attack against MP Tibi in the wake of his participation in the Palestinian Shahid Day.'

     "Member of the Fatah Central Committee Mohammad Shtayyeh hinted at what the PA might do if all paths to the peace process remain blocked. He said, 'If the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, insists on making no distinction between the settlement of Abu Ghanim [Har Homa neighborhood on the outskirts of Jerusalem, near Bethlehem, beyond the Green Line] and Tel Aviv, then we will make no distinction between Ramallah and Jaffa.'
Shtayyeh's statements hint at the possibility that the PA might nullify the agreements which were signed with Israel, which include mutual recognition between Israel and the PLO. This is one of the options under discussion in the PA. Shtayyeh told Al-Sharq Al-Awsat (London-based daily): 'The recognition of Israel wasn't balanced, because the PA recognized Israel as a geographical territory, but Israel recognized Palestine not as a geographical territory, but rather as an institution. It recognized only the PLO, and now we are demanding that Israel give mutual recognition.' He stated, 'We want Israel to recognize the Palestinian territories of 1967.'
Shtayyeh's statement is the first of its kind; no senior Palestinian [spokesman] has hinted in the past at the possibility of retracting recognition of Israel if it does not amend its recognition of Palestine."

They [Israelis] are not satisfied with Palestinian recognition that is a function of their state and its existence, but want recognition of the eternal right of Israel to exist. Possibly their nature will bring them to ask for compensation for the years that have passed without their state's existence, during the time it had the right to exist upon our skulls... They have a common mistake, or misconception by which they fool themselves, assuming that Fatah accepts them and recognizes the right of their state to exist, and that it is Hamas alone that loathes them and does not recognize the right of this state to exist. They ignore the fact that this state, based on a fabricated [Zionist] enterprise, never had any shred of a right to exist... Hamas, Fatah and the others are not waging war against Israel right now for reasons related to balance of power. There are no two Palestinians who disagree over the fact that Israel exists, and recognition of it is restating the obvious, but recognition of its right to exist is something else, different from recognition of its [physical] existence."

He said that the Palestinian prisoners in the Interior have a special status within the framework of all [prisoner] exchange deals concluded between Israel and the various Palestinian factions: the Jibril deal in 1985 was the last one which included prisoners from the Interior; after that the [successive] Israeli governments have refused to release them within any framework – whether as part of a prisoner exchange or through political agreements – claiming that [their imprisonment] was an internal Israeli issue. Sarsour said that this turned the lives of the prisoners of the Interior into a hell, since they are not Israelis when it comes to prisoners' rights according to Israeli laws and amendments, and they are not Palestinians when it comes to [prisoner] exchange deals or the release of prisoners in political agreements. Thus, these prisoners become hostages with no justification… During the meeting Karake emphasized his demand to release the Palestinian prisoners from Palestine occupied in 1948 (i.e., Israeli Arabs)… he said that the prisoners from occupied Palestine are a fundamental and authentic part of our nation, part of our national prisoners' movement, and freedom fighters who have sacrificed and fought for the sake of the freedom, independence and honor of Palestine."

The issue now is their focus on Al-Aqsa [Mosque], in order to break up the [concentrations of] people around it. Therefore, the first action they undertook was that Muslims from all over the world could not come to Al-Aqsa; that was the first thing. Thereafter the Palestinians inside Palestine (i.e., Israel) found themselves in a situation where they cannot come to Al-Aqsa. After that it was the residents of the West Bank, [just] a meter away – and that's [thanks to] the racist Nazi separation fence – who found themselves in a situation where they cannot enter Al-Aqsa… Now those who rule the country [Israel] are people… who are indecisive; they have no polity, they don't understand what a political cabinet is about, they don't understand diplomacy, they don't initiate.

The 1917 Balfour Declaration was a letter from the British Foreign Minister Arthur Balfour to Lord Rothschild of the Zionist movement, which expressed Britain's support for "the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people." Every year on the anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, Palestinian Authority leaders and official media issue harsh statements attacking it.
PA TV News interview with Fatah member Fayez Abu Aitah:

     "Yesterday we had the [anniversary of the] Balfour promise - the greatest crime that the international community is responsible for, and specifically the British government. The time has come for the international community to repair the sin against the Palestinian people and to give the Palestinian people today its right to live like the nations of the world, on its land, within its independent Palestinian state."

 "Today is the 94th anniversary of the cursed Balfour promise [Balfour Declaration, 1917], by means of which those who had no ownership (Britain) permitted those who had no right (the Jews) to establish a national homeland for the Jews in Palestine."
Reporter: "A promise that brings a mark of shame upon humanity, because it [humanity] ignored the colonialist frenzy. Balfour will continue to turn in his grave because of the historical injustice which Britain committed against the Palestinian people."

A press release by the [Arab League] Department for Palestine and the Occupied Arab Lands on the occasion of the anniversary of the Balfour promise, said: 'This cursed promise was the main reason for the catastrophe which befell Palestine in 1948, and it represented the beginning of the tragedy of the Palestinian people, which has continued for many decades...
The promise declared by British Foreign Minister Arthur Balfour, on Nov. 2, 1917, constitutes a great political crime and sin, leading to the uprooting of the Palestinian people and the theft of its land, and causing wars and great conflicts which still continue in the region.'"

Every year on the anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, Palestinian Authority leaders and official media issue harsh statements attacking it. 
     "The President of the United States of America, Barack Obama, expressed the hope of seeing Palestine as a state in the UN, on Sept. 21, 2011, and we believed him... It has been said of the Balfour promise [Balfour Declaration, 1917] that it was a promise by someone who had no ownership [of the land] to those who had no right [to it]. We said of Obama's promise that it was a promise by someone who is unable, to those whose right [to the land] it is already. Balfour's promise to the Jews of Europe - a homeland in Palestine - was a preventive step, because in his letter he sketched a road map for freeing his country and Europe of the burden of the Jewish problem, and of the bases for the spread of Communism in western Europe, which was led by the poor, the European workers, and the Jews... The Jews of the Zionist enterprise sought a promise from Balfour, who had the ability, because they knew that only the strongest power in the world at the time [Britain] could impose the conditions for the establishment of a state for the Jews. His promise was an ominous sign, [bringing] disasters upon the Palestinians, the Arabs, and the nations of the region and the world."

     "Today is the 94th anniversary of the cursed Balfour promise [The Balfour Declaration of 1917], by which Britain awarded the Jews the right to establish a national home in Palestine, based on the false slogan, 'A land without a people for a people without a land'. ... This promise represented the first step taken by the West on the road to establishing an entity for the Jews on the land of Palestine, in accordance with the wishes of World Zionism, at the expense of a people which had been rooted in this land for thousands of years. ... The Jews made successful use of the piece of paper published by Arthur Balfour, known for his friendship with the Zionist Movement, and later the [British] Mandate and the 1947 resolution by the [UN] General Assembly concerning the Partition of Palestine: They realized their dream of establishing [the State of] Israel on May 15th, 1948, and this entity earned membership in the UN thanks to pressure by the super powers. Israel became the first country in the history of the global political system which was established on land belonging to others, and which receives international aid which has caused it to behave arrogantly in the region - expanding, swallowing more Palestinian and Arab territory, and behaving violently and mercilessly towards those among the Palestinian people who remain upon their land."

Dr. Al-Mutawakkil Taha, Palestinian Minister of Information: "[The occupation] claims that it has legitimacy in three areas. It argues that it has the historical right to the land, and argues that it has the right to the [unintelligible]… and the holy places. It argues that it has the cultural right to all its cultural components – I refer to the clothing, the food and drink, the poetry and the language, and the heritage and the folklore and so on. Now, we must consistently work on a world-view which will stand up to this forcible theft, with the occupation aspiring to seize the three areas of [our] rights [historical and cultural rights, and rights to the holy places]. We must have means on the level of the narrative, the anchoring of history – on the level of united action and cultural unity. We have a vision, we have an established and professional strategy, to respond on all fronts to the false claims of the Zionists that they have the right… As to the occupation – we know [their claims], we are in an eternal, endless struggle with the occupation over legitimacy…
We have the three rights [historical, cultural, and holy places] and they [Israel] have false claims, and a narrative which is based on illusions and fables, on Torah beliefs, and these two theories which are used about this land – we ourselves must be able to fill the theory which we adopt, so it will be stronger and more provable, and more acceptable – not only on the Palestinian and the Arab front, but also on the international front."

Mansour called upon the children not to buy any goods with Hebrew writing on it, and instructed them to buy Palestinian, Arab and foreign merchandise [instead]. He told them to ask storekeepers not to bring any Israeli merchandise into the town of Madama.
