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.”

Seventh Fatah Conference calls Arab-Israelis “Palestinian people in the Interior” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Dec. 5, 2016
Headline: “The Seventh Fatah Movement Conference emphasizes that it is important to complete the national building plan
*The [Palestinian] National Council (i.e., the legislative body of the PLO) must convene within three months
*It is necessary to act against the rift [between Fatah and Hamas] and complete the national reconciliation
*Our people has a legitimate right to resistance in order to put an end to the occupation
*Determined resistance to all interference in our internal matters”

"The conference saluted with pride and admiration all of the members of our Palestinian people in the Interior (i.e., Palestinian term for Israel) for their resolve, their protection of the national identity, and their struggle for justice and equality. It expressed great appreciation of their success in creating a framework for their parliamentary struggle on a path of unity (i.e., the Israeli Arab Joint List party in the Israeli Parliament) in light of the exclusion plot led by the racist and extremist Israeli right.
The conference emphasized Fatah and the PLO’s strategy to expand the channels of dialogue and communication with the various elements of Israeli society, in a way that serves our national liberation plan and strengthens the chances of establishing a just peace, which will depend on the international institutions and provide a just and agreed upon solution to the refugee problem, in accordance with UN Resolution 194 and as stated in the Arab Peace Initiative."

Zayzafuna is a PLO magazine for children partially funded by the PA. The magazine, which includes material written by both the magazine’s staff and child readers, represents the values of the educators and serves as a window into the minds of the Palestinian children submitting material to the magazine. Zayzafuna's website states that the magazine's advisory board is comprised of PA officials and educators, including Jihad Zakarneh, PA Deputy Minister of Education, and Abd Al-Hakim Abu Jamous, Head of the Media Department at the PA Ministry of Education. Since September 2015, Zayzafuna included a note on its second page thanking the PA Ministry of Finance for its financial support of the magazine (true as of the time of this writing, May 2016). In May 2011, the Deputy Chairman of the Zayzafuna organization Abd Al-Karim Ziyada explained on PA TV that the PA gives "a monthly payment of 10,000 shekels ($2,700) to cover the magazine's [costs]."

Fatah to Palestinians on wildfires in Israel: "What is burning are our [Palestinian] trees and our historical Palestinian land,” don't celebrate on social media 
Source: Palestine News Network (PNN, independent Palestinian news agency), Nov. 24, 2016
Headline: “Fatah: What is burning are our trees and our historical Palestinian land”
       “In a statement it published today [Nov. 24, 2016], the Fatah Movement emphasized the Palestinian identity of all the Palestinian trees and stones that are burning right now (i.e., in a wave of suspected Palestinian arson attacks in November 2016), which are part of our historical Palestine. The statement warned the Israeli government not to take advantage of this event in a way that serves it by accusing Palestinian bodies of standing behind the fires.
Head of the Information Committee of the Fatah [Mobilization and Organization Commission] Munir Al-Jaghoub said that [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu's government must clearly understand the sanctity of the Palestinian’s belonging to his land and trees.
The statement warned against… the irresponsible responses on the social networks, which include meanings and content as if the Palestinians are dancing over the flames that are spreading within Israel. The statement called on everyone to show historical responsibility and not to use language and terms that are far from the historical heritage and from the Palestinian right to the land that faces fires in the Interior (i.e., Palestinian term for Israel).”
