New PA TV kids' show
wipes Israel off the map

by Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook

A new children's show on official Palestinian Authority television is using a map of "Palestine" that teaches kids that Israel doesn't exist.

The program, Chicks, includes a regular segment that introduces viewers to a particular area of "Palestine." The map that PA TV has chosen for this educational program includes all of Israel, yet is labeled "Palestine." A second heading in English and Arabic next to the map reads, "Explore Your Country."

Maps showing all of Israel as "Palestine" are an important element of the PA's campaign that reinforces the message to Palestinians not to recognize Israel.
