PA: "Palestine" replaces all of Israel

and is "indivisible"

 

Fatah Facebook: "We educate our children... [so that] they will only agree to one rule, which cannot be added to, subtracted from, or calculated:
that Palestine cannot be divided"

 

by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik

 

Even during the current negotiations with Israel, the Palestinian Authority continues to disseminate maps that exclude the existence of Israel by presenting all of the land as "Palestine." Official PA TV broadcast a cartoon last month that showed a math teacher pointing to a map of "Palestine" as an example of "a number that is indivisible." The map included both PA areas and all of Israel.

Fatah also continues to promote this idea. Fatah's Facebook administrator recently stated that before teaching them "to read and write," Palestinians teach their children that "Palestine" is indivisible, so that they "will only agree to one rule, which cannot be added to, subtracted from, or calculated: that Palestine cannot be divided":

 

"We educate our children on the national anthem every morning. They will memorize the anthem of 'return'; they will engrave the four-colored [Palestinian] flag on their hearts; they will learn the foundations of the revolution before they learn to read and write; they will only agree to one rule, which cannot be added to, subtracted from, or calculated: that Palestine cannot be divided."

The text was accompanied by a photo of a teacher pointing to a map of "Palestine" replacing all of Israel drawn on the blackboard, with the explanatory text rejecting Israeli jurisdiction over Israeli cities: "Acre, Haifa, Jaffa, Ramle, Safed, Beit Shean, were and will remain Palestinian cities." 

 

Palestinian Media Watch has documented the PA's regular use of maps that present all of Israel as "Palestine." Click to see more examples of maps that erase Israel.

 

Fatah also uses maps presenting a world without Israel. The following are examples from Fatah's Facebook page posted in the recent months:
