PA depicts a world without Israel
Future: A world without 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.
Future: A world without Israel
The PA promises its people that in the future, the State of Israel will be completely erased and replaced by a State of Palestine. A Fatah member of Palestinian parliament, Najat Abu Bakr, told PA TV that the PA supports and adopts the “stages plan.” To the world, the PA claims that the Palestinians seek the West Bank and Gaza Strip, when in fact the goal is all of Israel: “It doesn’t mean that we don’t want the 1948 borders, but in our current political program we say we want a state on the 1967 borders.” [PA TV (Fatah), Aug. 25, 2008]

Fatah Central Committee member Abbas Zaki reiterated this position on Al-Jazeera TV:
“It is impossible to realize the inspiring idea or the great goal in one stroke… Israel will come to an end… If I say that I want to remove it from existence, this will be great, great, [but] it is hard. This is not a [stated] policy. You can't say it to the world. You can say it to yourself.” [Al-Jazeera TV, Sept. 23, 2011]

The following words from a song on official PA TV, which started to appear in 2012, expresses longing for the day that Jaffa, Acre, Haifa and the Galilee, all in Israel, will be part of “my country” (“Palestine”) where all cities would be accessible "with no borders":
"I wish I could enter my country with no borders...
I will go about in Bethlehem and in Al-Aqsa [Mosque], which is held captive...
I do not forget Jenin or Nablus, and the Galilee
I do not forget you, Jaffa…
To Jerusalem, to Ramle, to Acre, to Haifa, oh Lord...
I wish I could enter my country with no borders." [PA TV (Fatah), Feb. 9, 2012]

The PA’s using culture to long for the destruction of Israel is not new. Many examples can be seen in this section below, including a music video, which aired on official PA TV from 2007 – 2009 and promises the liberation of “Palestine,” listing numerous Israeli cities as “Palestine”:
"We will liberate the Land of the religions … Palestine is Arab in history and identity… From Jerusalem and Acre, from Haifa and Jericho and Gaza and Ramallah, from Bethlehem and Jaffa, Be'er Sheba and Ramle, and from Nablus to the Galilee, from Tiberias to Hebron.”
 
Finally, the newest PA schoolbooks teach that "Palestine will be liberated by its men, its women, its young ones and its elderly." [Arabic Language and the Science of Language, grade 12, p. 44]

Hamas member of the PA Parliament Marwan Abu Ras: “The prime message we are sending to our enemy: You have been humiliated and have failed, and Allah described for us your character traits. O, criminal Jews, you cannot remain on our land, and we will never renounce even one grain of our land… Their state is about to disappear.”

State of Politics, on the UN Security Council resolution of Dec. 23, 2016, against the Israeli settlements, hosting Fatah Central Committee member Azzam Al-Ahmad

Fatah Central Committee member Azzam Al-Ahmad: "We agree to a state on territory that is 22%, and perhaps less, of the land of historical Palestine. By the way, I personally ? all of our [family's] lands, thousands of acres in the Jezreel Valley (i.e., Israel) ? none are in the '67 lands (i.e., West Bank), but rather in the '48 (i.e., in Israel). Despite this, I am certain that a Palestinian state on the borders of June 4, 1967 will return my historical rights to me in full. I am certain of it. Therefore, I am certain that we need to start. The historical examples of this are many. North Vietnam. There was a North and a South [Vietnam]. What is its name now? Vietnam! Isn't it?"

The post refers to a UN Security Council resolution demanding an end to Israeli settlement building, which passed on Dec. 23, 2016, by a vote of 14-0 with one abstention. The US abstained instead of vetoing the resolution, in a breach of longstanding US policy of not allowing the UN to force conditions on Israel in place of direct negotiations. This policy change came during US President Barack Obama’s final weeks in office.

PFLP member: PLO plan for Palestinian state within the '67 borders is a "temporary goal and does not mean that Palestine belongs to the Jews" 
Source: Wattan (independent Palestinian news agency)‎, Nov. 29, 2016
Headline: “If we had accepted the partition agreement 69 years ago, would our situation have been better? Wattan asks the opinions of analysts and the factions”
     “Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) political bureau member Khalida Jarrar, in her interview with the [independent Palestinian news] agency Wattan, referred to [UN] partition Resolution 181 and asked how the Palestinians could have accepted the partition resolution at a time when Balfour had given a promise (i.e., the Balfour Declaration) that Palestine is the national homeland of the Jews! From this starting point, the refusal was a matter of principle as Palestine belongs to the Palestinians.
Jarrar denied the possibility of the implementation of the resolution at the time if the Palestinians had agreed to it, as the Zionist project is based on them settling in all of Palestine, and not in part of it.
Regarding the PLO, she said: ‘The national consensus plan of the PLO talked about a fully sovereign Palestinian state within the ‘67 borders as a temporary goal and does not mean that Palestine belongs to the Jews. It means that the matter depends on the right of return, in other words, a fully sovereign independent Palestinian state together with the right of all of the refugees to return to the homes from which they were expelled.’”

PA Foreign Minister on Palestinian radio: Britain must “issue a new promise that will end the promise from 99 years ago [i.e. the Balfour Declaration, considered basis for Israel’s establishment]”  
Source: Radio Voice of Palestine (Fatah), Nov. 2, 2016
Official PA radio station The Voice of Palestine program A New Day, interview with PA Minister of Foreign Affairs Riyad Al-Malki on his meeting with British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson

PA Minister of Foreign Affairs Riyad Al-Malki:
“We spoke not only about the Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration) but also about several additional topics that we think are of great significance and which should be monitored together with the British officials. Regarding the Balfour Promise we pointed out that it is most important that Britain issue a new promise that will end the promise from 99 years ago. A new promise that will speak about Britain’s commitment to the Palestinian people’s right of self-determination, and Britain’s support for the establishment of a Palestinian state and the recognition of the State of Palestine, that is the minimum. Likewise we spoke about the historical responsibility of Britain in light of what happened as a result of the Balfour Promise and the apology required from Britain if it has the daring and the courage to bear responsibility in light of what happened to the Palestinian people as a result of the Balfour Promise...”

Note: Al-Malki stated that in his meeting with Johnson it was agreed that the British government would give a response in the coming days.

The Balfour Declaration of Nov. 2, 1917 was a letter from British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour to Baron Rothschild stating that “His Majesty's government views with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people” and is seen as the basis for later international commitments to establish the State of Israel.
PA Supreme Fatwa Council condemns "invasions" of Al-Aqsa Mosque, calls on Palestinians to protect the mosque at all costs "until Allah inherits the land and everything in it" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 30, 2016
Headline: “The Fatwa Council: Exploiting Jerusalem as part of the American election campaign constitutes disrespect of international law”
     “The [PA Palestinian] Supreme Fatwa Council condemned the election promise that US Candidate Donald Trump made to recognize Jerusalem as the ‘united capital’ of Israel if he is elected as president…
The council warned of the regional consequences of an escalation in the rate of the invasions of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, which constitutes a red line for Muslims throughout the world. Likewise, it clarified that the occupation authorities have escalated the rate of their invasions of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque for what are called the Jewish holidays, and that these invasions reveal their aggressive intentions towards it and verify the falseness of their claim to commit to retaining the historic status quo that exists there… The council urged everyone who can come to the Al-Aqsa Mosque to invest the maximum efforts to reach it and strengthen the presence there so as to defend it, and emphasized that our people will adhere to their mosque, regardless of the price and sacrifices that will be required, until Allah inherits the land and everything in it.”

The PA and its leaders consider all of the Temple Mount an integral part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Therefore they view any presence of Jews on the mount as an "invasion." It should be noted that Jews who visit the Temple Mount only enter some sections of the open areas, and do not enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque or the Dome of the Rock.

Likewise, he noted that as is its habit, the occupation is intentionally working to clear the Al-Aqsa Mosque plazas and [remove] those carrying out Ribat (i.e., religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) within it, and to prevent them from entering it, and it is punishing them by all possible means. He emphasized that our people will continue to carry out unceasing Ribat at the Al-Aqsa Mosque... and will continue to be rooted in its Al-Aqsa Mosque and the rest of its land until the occupation passes."

Preacher at the Al-Aqsa Mosque: “Palestine, the pearl in the Muslims’ crown, will not return [to the Muslims] until the caliphate is reestablished, soon, Allah willing.” 
Source: YouTube channel "Aqsa Calls", May 20, 2016
A sermon by preacher Ali Abu Ahmad at the Al-Aqsa Mosque leading up to the month of Ramadan.
Ali Abu Ahmad: “Palestine and the Al-Aqsa Mosque were lost when the Caliphate fell. Palestine, the pearl in the Muslims’ crown, will not return [to the Muslims] until the caliphate is reestablished, soon, Allah willing. Indeed, armies of the Ummah (i.e., Arab/Islamic nation), this is your hour, carry out acts before Allah that will find favor with Him. We ask of Allah at this time that He grant us in His generosity a new caliphate, and may it be soon, O Master of the Universe.
Allah, make your presence dwell in the hearts of the Muslim armies and their commanders, and turn them into the redeemers of Islam and the Muslims. Allah, defend the lives of the Muslims. Allah, protect Al-Aqsa Mosque from the impurity of the Jews. Allah, annihilate all of the Jews. Allah, place their heads in our hands.”

Ali Abu Ahmad, a Salafist, also sharply criticized the Palestinian Authority in his speech for its ties with Israel, and expressed his wishes for the destruction of all rulers of Arab lands so that it will be possible to establish a caliphate.

     “The terrorist [Israeli Prime Minister] Benjamin Netanyahu promises not to give up the Golan. I say to him (through a third party because I cannot speak with him) [parentheses in source] that Tel Aviv is not his. The Golan is part of Syria, and all of Israel is occupied Palestine… What I say is that the occupation of Palestine is an evil thing that will end with the return of the occupiers to the place from where they came. I do not expect that the justice will include putting the members of the Israeli government on trial as the Nazis were put on trial after the fall of the Nazis, but just that they will leave, as Mahmoud Darwish requested when he said to them that they ‘pass between fleeting words’ and that they should take their names and get out from on us. All of their news is a crime or lies. The Jewish holiday of Passover falls on the 22nd of this month, and it marks the anniversary of the exodus of the Jews from Egypt. According to information I have received from two university professors, which was verified by my friend, the archeologist Zahi Hawass, this whole story is a biblical myth. I challenge them to bring me one archeological remnant from Egypt or Sinai, as I challenge them daily to bring me one Jewish archeological remnant from Jerusalem, or to show us a rock from the alleged Temple.”

Afterwards, I will add that Israel is a fraud and a new phenomenon that has no basis in history or geography, and that Palestine is from the [Jordan] River to the [Mediterranean] Sea.”
