PA depicts a world without Israel
"Palestine" replaces Israel
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.
"Palestine" replaces Israel
The Palestinian Authority paints a picture - both verbally and visually - of a world in which Israel does not exist. Children’s educational TV teaches that Palestine currently is a "state" (Arabic "dawla" = state) covering 27,000 sq. km - i.e., an area that includes all of Israel (the entire West Bank and Gaza Strip total only 6220 sq. km). Moreover, all Israel’s cities and infrastructure are referred to as "Palestinian": “Palestinian ports ... [are] Haifa, Jaffa, Ashkelon, Eilat, Ashdod, and Gaza". [PA TV (Fatah), Sept. 1 2008].

Maps provide visual reinforcement for this perception: Israel does not exist on any map; its area is marked as "Palestine." Maps showing the entire area of Israel covered with the Palestinian flag are routinely displayed at official PA events.

This educational documentary, depicting all parts of Israel as “Palestine," has been broadcast repeatedly on PA TV (Fatah) from 2007 – Oct 1, 2010:

“The West Bank and Gaza have another section in Palestine which is the Palestinian coast that spreads along the [Mediterranean] sea, from …Ashkelon in the south up to Haifa, in the Carmel Mountains. Haifa is a well-known Palestinian port. [Haifa] enjoyed a respected status among Arabs and Palestinians especially before it fell to the ‘occupation’ [Israel] in 1948. To its north, we find Acre. East of Acre, we reach a city with history and importance, the city of Tiberias, near a famous lake, the lake of Tiberias [Kinneret- sea of Galilee]. Jaffa, an ancient coastal city, is the bride of the sea, and Palestine’s gateway to the world.”
Fatah leader: Israel brings "gangs and the world's robbers" to settle in Palestinian cities "Jaffa, Haifa, Safed"

Official PA TV hosted Fatah leader in ‎Gaza Atef Abu Saif
Fatah leader in Gaza Atef Abu Saif: “Our ‎struggle with Israel is a struggle of who is ‎on this land, so Israel destroyed the Gaza ‎airport. Yasser Arafat insisted that there be ‎an airport, because he wanted to tell the ‎entire world that the Palestinian people, ‎against whom you (Israel) formed an ‎alliance in 1948, and whom you attacked ‎with all your decisions and weapons, ‎bringing gangs and the world’s robbers to ‎settle in its cities – Jaffa, Haifa, Safed – ‎‎(sentence left unfinished).”‎

Note: The Yasser Arafat International Airport opened in the Gaza strip in 1998. In response to the second Intifada (PA terror campaign), Israel bombed the airport's radar station and control tower in 2001, after which the airport ceased to operate.

Official PA TV News reported on the Arab Heritage Festival at Hebrew University in Jerusalem
Official PA TV reporter: "The Palestinian flag [flying] at the head of the scouts [parade] opened the festival, which was held at the [Hebrew] University's main amphitheater for the first time - the very amphitheater at which the first British High Commissioner Herbert Samuel and [Lord President of the British Council Arthur James] Balfour, announced the founding of Hebrew University in 1925, 89 years ago. Today, the [Arab] students at Hebrew University have reclaimed occupied territories in Jerusalem. Songs dedicated to the prisoners and the Martyrs (Shahids) were sung by the singer Rim Banna from Nazareth... [The participants chanted] the slogan, 'The amphitheater is ours,' and in fact, it was theirs. They restored the Arab character of the land on which Hebrew University was built, even if only for one day, without weapons, but through their own tradition and by raising the flag of their Palestinian identity.

PA TV: Goal of hunger strike is to replace all of Israel with "Palestine" 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, May 13, 2014
Official PA TV broadcast a song in support of the Palestinian prisoners’ hunger strike. During the clip, an image is shown in which a cup of water, “plus” a spoon of salt “equals” a map of Israel. (“Water and salt” is the slogan of the hunger strike). Beneath this equation is another one showing the chemical formulas for water and salt as equaling “dignity.” This PA TV broadcast shows that the goal is to replace all of Israel with Palestine.

On April 24, 2014, 120 Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli prisons on administrative detention began a hunger strike. They were eventually joined by 180 more inmates. 75 participants required hospitalization. The hunger strike ended on June 25, 2014.

Fatah official celebrates "the unification of all our people in all of Palestine" 
Source: Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Mar. 30, 2014
     “The Tunisian High School Teachers’ Association held a well-attended ceremony marking the 38th anniversary of eternal Land Day yesterday [March 29, 2014]…
Participants at the ceremony included… on the Palestinian side, Fatah Central Committee Member and Commissioner of Arab Relations Abbas Zaki, Ambassador of the State of Palestine to Tunisia Salman Al-Harfi and Fatah Secretary in Tunisia Hisham Mustafa…
In his speech, Zaki spoke of the stages of the struggle our people have led in this month (March) – the Battle of Karameh, the Republic of Dalal Mughrabi, Mother’s Day and Land Day, which proved the unification of all our people in all of Palestine on that day.”
From WAFA, official PA news agency

Notes: The Karameh battle - In 1968, Israeli army forces attacked the Al-Karameh village in Jordan, where Fatah terrorists were launching attacks on Israel. Arafat used the event for propaganda purposes, declaring the battle a great victory that erased the disgrace of the 1967 Six Day War defeat.
Dalal Mughrabi led the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history, known as the Coastal Road massacre, in 1978, when she and other Fatah terrorists hijacked a bus on Israel's Coastal Highway, killing 37 civilians, 12 of them children, and wounding over 70. Palestinian sources occasionally refer to the hijacked bus as “the Republic of Dalal Mughrabi.”
Land Day –an annual commemoration of the general strike and demonstrations organized by Israeli Arab residents of the Galilee on March 30, 1976, to protest the Israeli government's decision to expropriate land in the Galilee for security and settlement purposes, which it later implemented. Israeli Arabs and Palestinians consider it a national day.

     “Fatah’s Shabiba [youth] movement in the West Bank published a press release in response to the declarations made by the extreme right-wing Prime Minister of the occupation, Benjamin Netanyahu, demanding that President Mahmoud Abbas [publicly] declare his recognition of Israel as a Jewish state at Birzeit University…
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."

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.”
