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.”

Map of "Palestine" erasing Israel on Fatah Facebook page attacks UNRWA 
Source: Official Fatah Facebook page, Aug. 2, 2018

Image and text posted on the official Fatah Facebook page

Posted text: “Return me to my land and I do not want the services of UNRWA”

The image shows a Palestinian refugee wearing a keffiyeh (Arab headdress) and holding a sack of flour, on which is written:
“UNRWA (UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East)
Wheat flour (not for sale)
For free distribution to Palestine refugees…”
The refugee is knocking on a locked door in the shape of the PA map of “Palestine” that presents all of Israel as “Palestine” together with the PA areas, which is colored blue and has the UNRWA logo on it.
The refugee is saying: “Return me to my land and I do not want the services of UNRWA”

The cartoon apparently refers to a bill proposed in July 2018 by US Representative Doug Lamborn that would limit US money allocated to UNRWA until it works to resettle only the original Palestinian refugees.

Op-ed in official PA daily: “[The Palestinians] are the owners of all of this country, including the part on which the racists established what they call `Herzl`s dream – the state of the Jews’!" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 20, 2018
Excerpt of an op-ed by Muwaffaq Matar, Fatah Revolutionary Council member and regular columnist for the official PA daily

Headline: "The Jewish nation-state law – Israel's bogus democracy!"

"The position the members of the Joint [Arab] List in the Israeli Parliament took towards the [Jewish] nation-state law will be noted to their credit, as they did not express their opposition as occurs in every parliament in the democratic world during the discussion of the clauses of any law, but rather did better and tore up its text, which the racist extremists consider 'sacred,' and threw it in the face of [Israeli] Prime Minister [Benjamin Netanyahu] of the 'racist state of the Jews,' as it should now be called after the ratification of this law. This was a historic moment that will be noted to the credit of the members of the Joint List, in which the Arab members of the Israeli Parliament proved their superiority and earned national accolades, while those failing took pride in their echoing failure when they codified 'the racial superiority of the Jews' and allowed the legal legitimization of discrimination against two million Palestinian Arabs, whom this law considers a minority. This is while the world knows that they are an inseparable part of the Palestinian people, who are the owners of all of this country, including the part on which the racists established what they call '[Zionist leader Theodor] Herzl's dream – the state of the Jews’!"

Head of Palestinian Football Association accuses Israel of “politicizing” sport, while calling on Argentina to avoid match against Israel in “occupied Jerusalem”  
Source: WAFA, official PA news agency, May 28, 2018
    “Chairman of the [PLO] Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs and the Palestinian Football Association Jibril Rajoub called on Argentina to avoid participating in the friendly football match [with Israel] that is expected to take place on June 9 [2018] in occupied Jerusalem, as part of the Argentinian national team’s preparations for the World Cup. Rajoub expressed his opposition and condemnation of the Israeli occupation government’s decision to hold the match. He emphasized that Israel is politicizing the sport… This was said in an official protest letter that Rajoub sent to the Argentine Football Association, the South American Football Confederation [CONMEBOL], and also to FIFA and UEFA – both of which Israel belongs to, to the Union of Arab Football Associations, and the Islamic Solidarity Sports Federation… Rajoub expressed deep concern over the match being held in occupied Jerusalem, which constitutes clear submission ‘to the heavy political pressures that the government of Israel and its ministers have exerted, as Israeli Minister of Culture and Sports Miri Regev openly boasted.’ He added: ‘Israel, the occupying power, has politicized the sport in a way that contradicts the moral standards and international values that determine the principles of the sport.’”
