PA depicts a world without Israel
Denying Israel’s right to exist
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.
Denying Israel's right to exist
The Palestinian Authority adamantly rejects Israel’s right to exist and rewrites history to deny the 3,000-year-old connection of Jews to the Land Israel. [See "Rewriting History" section.] The essential message of the PA to its people is that Jews have no historical connection to the land, and that the State of Israel was created by the colonial powers for two reasons: to rid their countries of Jews, and to establish a colonial bridgehead in order to control the region. One particularly horrific expression of this ideology appeared in the official PA daily as far back as 1998:

“The difference between Hitler and [British Foreign Minister] Balfour was simple: the former [Hitler] did not have colonies to send the Jews to, so he destroyed them, whereas Balfour ...[turned] Palestine into his colony and sent the Jews. Balfour is Hitler with colonies, while Hitler is Balfour without colonies. They both wanted to get rid of the Jews...Zionism was crucial to the defense of the West, [by] ridding Europe of the burden of the Jews.”
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Dec. 6, 1998]
 
This video of Palestinian Ambassador to Lebanon, Abbas Zaki, shows how this distortion continues to be expressed:
 
"We must understand why Israel was established … [The Europeans] wanted to get rid of the Jews. … At that same time, energy [oil] was discovered in the Arab region … Then, they solved the [Jewish] problem by exporting [the Jews] to Israel [and at same time] they imposed their hegemony on the region’s natural resources. The [purpose of the] State of Israel is not for the Jews but it is an ongoing [colonial] project, an outpost for Imperialism.”

PA TV portrays Israel as foreign colonial occupier, claims ancient Jewish history is Palestinian 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Jan. 27, 2016

The PA TV video shows a woman who represents "ancient Palestinians" (or possibly Muslims) going through the history of the land - replacing the Jewish people's actual history. The woman is introduced in a peaceful scene feeding birds in a period predating the Roman conquest of Judea and destruction of the Temple in 70 CE. Suddenly the scene is disturbed, the birds scatter and the woman runs away from various foreign invaders: first an ancient Roman soldier, then a Crusader, then a British soldier, and finally a Jew (wearing a skullcap), who throws a lit cigarette at her.
In the final scene, the woman stops fleeing when a man on a horse - the "new" Muslim conqueror Saladin who defeated the Crusaders - extends his hand and helps her up the mountain. He represents the coming savior who will "liberate Palestine" from Jewish-Israeli rule. In the end, the woman stands on the top of the mountain, fleeing no one anymore, symbolizing that Israel is gone like the other foreign rulers.

Headline: “38 prisoners served more than 20 years in the occupation’s prisons”
     “The [PLO] Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs stated yesterday [Jan. 21, 2016] in a report that the number of prisoners who have served more than 20 years in the occupation’s prisons has risen to 38 prisoners, most of them sentenced to life, and 14 of them from among residents of the territories occupied in 1948 (i.e., Israel). The commission noted that the veteran prisoners are Karim Younes, arrested on Jan. 6, 1983, and Maher Younes, arrested on Jan. 18, 1983. The commission said that the number of prisoners sentenced to life sentences has risen to 504 prisoners.”

Karim Younes - an Israeli Arab serving a 40-year sentence for kidnapping and killing Israeli soldier Avraham Bromberg in 1980 together with his cousin Maher Younes. Originally sentenced to life in prison, but Israeli President Shimon Peres reduced his sentence in 2012.

Fatah official about "American infernal plot": The US created ISIS to make an Islamic state as pretext to create a Jewish state

     "PLO leadership member [Fatah Central Committee member and Fatah Commissioner of Arab Relations and Relations with China] Abbas Zaki linked the establishment of an Islamic state under the auspices of ISIS with the establishment of the Jewish state on the land of Palestine. He described the plan to establish these two states as the revival and realization of the American concept for the region.  The Fatah Central Committee member and Fatah Commissioner of Arab Relations and Relations with China [Abbas Zaki] stated in an interview with Al-Mashriq: 'The American plot began by targeting the heart of the Arab nation, by destroying Iraq and Syria, and weakening Egypt.' He clarified: 'The strong Arab states did not receive support that would enable them to deal with Israel and stop its spread on Arab land.' Abbas Zaki stated: 'ISIS is an American product, necessary for the establishment of an Islamic state in order to justify the existence of a Jewish state, in which there is no place for Palestinians.' He explained: 'The dismantling of Arab societies by taking advantage of the sectarian factor is part of the infernal plot to dismantle the Arab nation (ummah), split it, and kill its spirit of solidarity.'

PA TV: Balfour Declaration was Europe's "solution to get rid of them (the Jews)"  
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Dec. 31, 2015

"Faced with the Jews' schemes, Europe could not bear their character traits, monopolies, corruption, and their control and climbing up positions in government. In 1290, King Edward I issued a decree banishing the Jews [from England]. Following him were France, Germany, Austria, Holland, Czechoslovakia, Spain and Italy. The European nations felt that they had suffered a tragedy by providing refuge for the Jews. Later the Jews obtained the Balfour Declaration, and Europe saw it as an ideal solution to get rid of them."

Headline: “Rabbi Zion’s religious ruling…”
     “These are the Palestinians, descendants of the Canaanites and the Jebusites, the first to dwell on this sacred soil and to inhabit this blessed land. They are the first who set foot on this soil, and built Haifa, Jaffa, Jerusalem, Safed, Hebron, Nablus and Tal Al-Rabia (i.e., Arabic translation of Tel Aviv, to wrongly imply the existence of an Arab village of that name prior to Tel Aviv, Ed.). They are those who have put down roots in the heart of Jerusalem, and survived throughout all the centuries, and all the dreams of invaders and greedy ones were shattered on their rocks and chests. Colonialism and all invaders and occupiers passed through here, while the Palestinians continued to carry out Ribat (i.e., religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) and stand firm.”

We do not want an independent Palestinian state with its capital in  Jerusalem. Your state which violates international law is enough for us... Who told [Israeli Parliament (Knesset) member Yair] Lapid that the Palestinian people does not want to get rid of the occupation? Who convinced Lapid that the Palestinian people wants to see the settlements on its land, army camps, tanks, tractors, soldiers and officers, into whom orders and Talmudic rabbis’ rulings have been injected, which allow the spilling of the blood of Palestinians, the original owners of the land? ...

Unless the fabricating genius wants to take apart the body, cut it up, and crumble it, in order to keep its viruses and cancers!”

Headline: “98 years since the ominous Balfour Declaration”
     “Today [Nov. 2, 2015], Monday, is the 98th anniversary of the promise in which British Foreign Minister Balfour gave the Jews the right to establish their national home in Palestine. The ominous promise – in which one who does not have ownership gave the land of Palestine to one who does not have the right – was given by the British government of that time, and it worsened the tragedy of the Palestinian people from day to day… It should be noted that the Zionist movement used the Balfour Declaration as a pretext for establishing the Zionist entity, through the placement and expansion of settlements which turned into large cities after 1948, as a result of the takeover of large territories of Palestine’s lands, and expropriation of them from their legal owners. This was done using all inhuman means, such as massacre, uprooting, and expulsion, against the Palestinian people, which increased its suffering and placed it in ongoing conflict with the occupation from that day on… Secretary-General of the [PA’s] Islamic-Christian Council for Jerusalem and the Holy Places Dr. Hanna Issa clarified: ‘Britain played an illegal role, which began 3 years before it announced the Balfour Declaration, when it promised the Zionists that it would give the Jews a national homeland in Palestine. Since that date, terror operations in the Middle East region are becoming more and more severe as a result of this promise, which dragged the region into the disasters of war and instability.”

Israeli affairs expert Fayez Abbas: “I do not want the [Palestinian] children to die from the fascist occupation’s hostile soldiers’ gunfire. They receive orders to murder from [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu and [Israeli Minister of Defense Moshe] Ya’alon. This decision was agreed upon three weeks ago, they surely read the book by Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira , who wrote The King’s Torah, and called [in his book] to murder non-Jewish (goy) children in accordance with the Torah, the goyim are non-Jews, today there are no non-Jews in the area aside from the children of Palestine, I am sure that Ya’alon, Netanyahu, and Israeli Minister of Public Security [Strategic Affairs and Minister of Information Gilad] Erdan have read this book. Let’s guard our children, and we do not want to say out loud ‘we will die and Palestine will live.’ We want to live so that Palestine will live, if we will die, and the children will also die, who will remain in Palestine, the settlers!’”

Pisgat Ze'ev stabbing attack - On Oct. 12, 2015, two Palestinian terrorists, Hassan ‎Manasrah (15) and Ahmad Manasrah (13), stabbed Yossef Ben Shalom (21) in the Pisgat ‎Ze'ev neighborhood of East Jerusalem, then repeatedly stabbed a 13-‎year-old boy (name undisclosed at time of writing) who was riding his bike. Hassan Manasrah was killed while fleeing the scene, and Ahmad Manasrah was shot by Israeli police and hospitalized. Both victims of the attack were seriously injured.

Europe collaborated with "the Zionist colonialist entity" with the aim of stealing from the Arabs and fragmenting them

Op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, columnist for official PA daily
Headline: “The two causes contradict each other”
       “What researchers trying to compare the two causes could not identify was that the Palestinian issue was a tangible issue, on the ground and in history, with real presence in reality. Likewise, its cause is essentially different from the Jewish issue, which was actually a phantom from the European point of view and was created by them [the Europeans].
In addition, all European leaders sought to create a cheap, low-cost mechanism that would ensure the fragmentation of the Arab region in order to steal the resources of the peoples of the Arab nation. Therefore, they used the Zionist colonialist entity and collaborated with it, in accordance with developments in the international capitalist camp, and in a manner that would serve the interests of Europe and the US… Were it not for Europe’s [support] since Napoleon’s call in 1978, King Wilhelm II (i.e., last German Emperor and King of Prussia, ruled from 1888 to 1918. –Ed.) in the second half of the 19th century, Britain’s adoption of the Zionist movement since the mandate over Palestine and the issuing of the Balfour promise (i.e., Declaration) in November 1917 and the subsequent American patronage and support, after it [the US] became the center of decisions and the leader of the Western camp following World War II, the Hebrew state would not have managed to exist and endure.”

I focused on the modern history of the Middle East, but the material also included the study of ancient history, on the assumption that it serves as a ‘background’ for the present. I ask the students of religion to accept what I say: There are no Jewish archeological remnants in our lands. There are no archeological remains of kingdoms or prophets… There were Jews in our lands, from east to west, but there were absolutely no kingdoms. Most of the Jews today are of Khazar origin, and are not ‘Sephardis’ - in other words - Middle Eastern… However the fathers of orthodox Judaism fled from the Caucasus Mountains to eastern Europe, and afterwards to its center, and became Zionists, or Ashkenazis (i.e., Jews of European descent). They claimed a right to Palestine, and the British colonialism and American administrations throughout the generations supported them, until Palestine was lost."
