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]

     “The Palestinian National Liberation Movement, Fatah, emphasized that it will not recognize a ‘Jewish State’ and that the Palestinian people continues with the negotiations battle, maintaining its principles, and will not submit to Netanyahu’s conditions…. Movement spokesman, Ahmad Asaf added: ‘Recognition of the Jewishness of Israel not only contradicts international law, but also constitutes an approval for the expulsion of millions of Palestinians from their land and their homes in their historical homeland, and this is something which will never happen.”

     “Advisor to the Prime Minister [Fayyad] on national affairs, Omar Al-Ghoul: ‘Netanyahu’s impossible conditions… come back to the policy of oppressive occupationist dictates. He still insists that the Palestinian authority recognize the Jewishness of the State of Israel – which would mean withholding civic rights from the Palestinians inside the Green Line [i.e., Arab Israeli citizens] and nullification of the right of return of the Palestinian refugees. This is something which the Palestinian leadership, and any Palestinian resident who believes in the peace option, does not accept.”

     "Occupation forces arrested [Prisoner] Basem [Al-Khandaqaji] on Nov. 2nd, 2004, following the Carmel Market operation [terror attack], in which three Israelis were killed and a little less than 50 others were injured. His father told Al-Hayat al-Jadida: ‘When Basem was arrested, we thought the detention wouldn’t last long… He was given three life sentences, and he began his new path in prison.’ When the judge asked him to say something after the sentence was passed, Basem gave a moving political and human speech. He said, ‘In the past, you [Israelis] were the number one victim… I wasn’t born then; it was the tragedy of my people that was born. You turned from victim into a monster; you didn’t use gas chambers, but rather things that were worse than them. You killed and annihilated generations from among my people …’ When the judge asked him if he was guilty, Basem answered: ‘Address that question to the Israeli leaders; concerning the massacre that they carried out against a defenseless people. You are the new Nazis upon the earth, and hopefully we will enjoy the destruction and ruin that you will bring upon your own people because of your barbarism.’"

On May 30, a flotilla of ships set out to break Israel’s blockade of Gaza. Participants were filmed on board chanting Islamic battle cries that invoked the killing of Jews, and expressing desire to seek Martyrdom. The next day, the Israeli army boarded the flotilla and was met with a well-coordinated attack, leading to the death of 9 flotilla participants. The following is a description of the mood on the ship before the confrontation:

Dr. Abd Al-Fatah Shayyeq Naaman, lecturer in Shari'ah law at a university in Yemen, visiting in Gaza:
     "The [Gaza] flotilla commander said yesterday: 'We will not allow the Zionists to get near us and we will use resistance against them.'
How will they wage resistance? They will resist with their fingernails. They are people who seek Martyrdom for Allah, as much as they want to reach Gaza, but the first [Martyrdom] is more desirable." Click here to view

PA daily: Israeli books should be burned

Hafez Barghouti, editor of official PA daily, excerpts from editorial:
     "Egyptian Minister Farouk Hosni lost the contest for the position of Director-General of UNESCO. His defeat was to be expected, following the Israeli campaign against him for having stated in the Egyptian parliament that he would burn any Israeli book that he found in an Egyptian library. However, this statement, which has been used against him as an Antisemitic statement, is not the direct cause of his defeat. Had he not made this statement, there would have been an Israeli campaign against him for not having visited Israel throughout his entire tenure as Egyptian Minister of Culture. Passing through Israel is a condition for receiving "quality certification" to enter international circles. Without it, the sword of [the accusation of] of Antisemitism would have hung over him…

Marwan Barghouti, Fatah Secretary in the West Bank and member of Fatah Central Committee, in a statement read at the Sixth General Fatah Conference in August 2009:
     "Finally, Barghouti once again renewed the promise and the oath to our people and to Fatah members everywhere, that the flag of the resistance will remain flying and will not come down until the occupation ended, and that we will continue in the path of the Shahids (Martyrs) and the prisoners – ‘the way of Fatah,’ the way of the struggle. [He added:] ‘The last day of the period of occupation is the first day of peace in the region; there is no peace, no security and no stability except with the disappearance of the occupation and the settlers, and the end of the occupation is closer than many imagine it to be. The fate of the settlements in the [West] Bank and in Jerusalem will be no better than that of Gush Katif and Kfar Darom in Gaza. The occupation will end up in the dustbin of history as an example of the racism and of the Fascist and Nazi regimes. Our people, bearing the most noble, respectable and just cause known to humankind in modern history, will prevail.'"

Note: Marwan Barghouti - serving five life sentences for orchestrating terror attacks against Israeli civilians. When arrested in 2002, he headed the Tanzim (Fatah terror faction). After he was convicted and imprisoned, he was re-elected member of the Palestinian Authority parliament.
PA daily: Israel is a passing, transient spirit

Yihya Rabah, daily columnist in official PA newspaper
     "The Palestinians left their homeland [during the 1948 war] and did not return… They left, thinking that their absence would not last long… By now it has reached sixty one years… The State of Israel cannot bear the contradiction, being a country that lives like a demon that takes possession of another body. The State of Israel lives within the Palestinian body, in Palestinian land and Palestinian cities… and despite all the aggression, and despite the whole ugly deception, Israel… looks like a demon that enters a person's body, causing him suffering and depriving him of sleep and torturing him. But it remains… a passing, transient spirit, which dwells in a body in an abnormal manner, and one day it will leave him, as soon as the sick body is restored to physical and spiritual health… All of Palestine, from the [Jordan] river to the [Mediterranean] sea, from Rosh ha-Nikra to Rafiah, is the homeland of the absent Palestinian."
