PA intensifies campaign
to teach denial
of Israel's existence
by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik
Ignoring its renewed commitment to "work against incitement of any sort" during the proximity talks, the PA continues to educate its people to envision a world without Israel, presenting Israeli cities and regions as "Palestinian."
Today, PA TV re-broadcast an educational documentary that had been taken off the air six months ago. It describes the Israeli cities of Haifa, Acre, Ashkelon, Jaffa and the Sea of Galilee as Palestinian.
PA TV is under the direct control of the office of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.
The following is the transcript of the excerpt of the PA TV documentary:
"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, until Haifa, in the Carmel Mountains. Haifa is a well-known Palestinian port. [Haifa] enjoyed a high 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 Sea of Galilee. Jaffa, an ancient coastal city, is the bride of the sea, and Palestine's gateway to the world."
