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.”

PA TV gives platform to Jordanian pilot who denied Israel’s existence “from the River to the Sea” over US Jerusalem decision 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Dec. 17, 2017
Official PA TV program Good Morning Jerusalem, about a video in Arabic being shared on social media of Jordanian pilot Yousef Dajah who, on a flight from Amman to New York, described the flight path in an announcement to the passengers as going over “Palestine” and passing “north of Jerusalem, the capital of the Palestinian state”

Official PA TV reporter Sundus Ahmed: "… Our viewers, the positions expressing the noble Jordanian people's rejection of [US President Donald] Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital continue. And today – defiance of a different type. The defiance of a Jordanian pilot in his special way, when he announced the flight path of the Royal Jordanian [airplane] to New York… In order to talk more about this matter, I welcome our guest, Captain Yousef Al-Hamlan Dajah... What motivated you to speak and announce [it] in this way?"
Jordanian pilot Captain Yousef Dajah: "In the name of All Merciful Allah, greetings and peace on the lord of the messengers, [Prophet] Muhammad, and on his family members and friends… Foolish American President [Donald Trump's] decision was to declare that Jerusalem is the capital of 'Israel,' in quotation marks, because as far as I’m concerned Palestine is from the [Jordan] River to the [Mediterranean] Sea... We will liberate [Palestine], Allah willing, from the river to the sea…

PA Supreme Fatwa Council rejects US recognition of Jerusalem: “Jerusalem is an inseparable part of the occupied Palestinian land, and there is no legality to the existence of the occupation on any bit of it”

Headline: “The Supreme Fatwa Council: Jerusalem belongs to us by virtue of an irrefutable divine decree”
      “The [PA Palestinian] Supreme Fatwa Council adamantly rejected American President [Donald Trump’s] decision to give occupied Jerusalem as a capital to the Israeli occupation entity state. It explained that this decision - which was given by one without ownership to one without a right – is illegal and constitutes a grave threat to the peace and stability in the region and a blatant attack against the rights of the Palestinian people and of the Arab and Islamic nation that are behind it.  This is because Jerusalem is an inseparable part of the occupied Palestinian land, and there is no legality to the existence of the occupation on any bit of it, and it and its holy sites - and the diamond in its crown, the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque - will remain in the souls of the Muslims and Arabs and will not be relinquished or bargained over. Our people, its leadership, and its factions refuse to hand over the keys to the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque or the Church of the Holy Sepulchre to any foreign party, regardless of the cost and the sacrifices.”
