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]

PA TV program Good Morning, Palestine spoke with the parents of three sons imprisoned in Israel.
PA TV host 1: “You’re saying that this is the eighth year in a row that you haven’t lit a Christmas tree in your home?”
Mother: “That’s right.”
Host 1: “The occupation prevented you from even lighting the tree? They’ve stolen the lights?”
Mother: “The tree is a beacon of hope. As long as I take my beacon of hope from our prisoners, I don’t need the tree. They are the tree, they are the nativity, they are love, they are peace – the prisoners. May Allah be with them and give them strength and help them be victorious over the Nazis.”
Host 1: “May Allah help you.” [Turning to the other host, she says] “Should we ask them to make a final wish for their children?”
Host 2: “By all means. A final wish for your sons and for all prisoners before we end.”
Mother: “I wish freedom for all male and female prisoners, and freedom for our great state. We hope our state will be from the [Mediterranean] Sea to the [Jordan] River, and not a state within the ’67 borders. No, no, we won’t ever accept that because our state must be from the Sea to the River. That’s what revolution is all about, you know.”
Host 1: “With mothers like you, and [pointing to the father] fathers, we’ll surely achieve that dream.”

    “Popular Front Political Bureau Member Laila Khaled expressed her pride in our people in Gaza and in ‘its brave resistance that taught the Zionist enemy a lesson it will not forget, and prevented it from achieving its goals.’ Khaled spoke at a mass reception in her honor at the Rafiah crossing point. ‘
During this latest Israeli aggression (i.e., Israel’s operation Pillar of Defense aimed at destroying terror infrastructure in the Gaza Strip in November 2012), our people in all places – in refugee camps and in the diaspora – called out ‘May Allah bless the resistance.’’ She went on to say, ‘I visited the grave of ‘the doctor’ (i.e., George Habash, founder of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine) and I told him that I was going to Gaza, holy land that has made us all very proud. I am going to my family, to my friends, and to my people there, bringing them much love from your people, who want to return to Gaza, to Haifa, to Jaffa, to Jerusalem, to Ramallah with no need of authorization. We want to return to all of Palestine, and we will surely return to it.'"

George Habash - the founder of the terror organization Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). The PLFP has planned many terror attacks against Israeli civilians since its founding in 1967.
Palestinian state on ’67 borders is only first step for getting back all the land (Israel)

The PA TV program Al-Balad Young People features a young man who is a student council member of the Modern College:
     “Regarding President Abbas’ application to the UN, we noticed that there was only little student awareness – or no student awareness. [Some thought that] Mahmoud Abbas’ application to the UN ends [our claim to] the ’48 [territories]. No! We used to be [just] an “Authority.” We were disputed territories in the eyes of the international community. We were disputed territories, and now we’ve become an occupied state. An occupied Palestinian state with the borders of June 4, 1967. This is how we’ve laid the foundation for attaining part of what is our right. We didn’t lay the foundation for everything we have the right to; we laid the foundation only for our right to the ’67 territory. Nonetheless, Salah Al-Din, when he [liberated] the lands of Al-Sham (i.e., greater Syria), he gave up on half of them, and only when he reached his full strength, did he come back for the remaining half.”

Girl on PA TV program for youth recites a poem:
     "They say I’m a terrorist, but I’m no terrorist
What can I do, Mother, they took my book away
They tied me up, blindfolded me and threw me in a tank
They threw me into a dark room under watch
They wouldn’t let me see you, Mother, and wouldn’t let me see my friends
I longed to go to school and I longed to have my games...
I swear by a child’s tears...
By the blood of the youth
Jerusalem will return to us...
We’ll free every inch from the foreigner's clutch."
Host: "Bravo, bravo, applause."

Headline: "Masses of our people accompany the body of Martyr (Shahid) Akram Bader on his final journey"
     "Masses of our people and the National and Islamic forces in the village of Beitillu and its environs accompanied Martyr Akram Bader yesterday on his final journey. His pure body was buried in the village cemetery, with cries in the background condemning the despicable crime committed by occupation soldiers at the Al-Za'im roadblock in occupied East Jerusalem against workers trying to reach their place of work within the Green Line [note: soldiers opened fire when the car trying to smuggle illegal workers into Jerusalem ran through a military roadblock]…
Secretary of the Ramallah and El-Bireh Fatah branch, Raed Radwan, said: 'We stand today, in this blessed month (Ramadan), upon this blessed land, to take leave of our fighter-Martyr, the Martyr of bread and livelihood, Akram Bader…'.
Radwan said: 'When you decided, Oh Martyr, to enter Jerusalem, in spite of the occupation, you wanted no more than to pray… in the Al-Aqsa Mosque, but the occupation government, the murderous and criminal government in Israel, would only return you to us as a Martyr …'.
Radwan added, 'We say to the occupation government and to the settlers that every drop of blood that fell from Martyr Akram and from the other Martyrs of our people, will sprout a fighter and revolutionary, who will avenge the blood of the Martyrs and continue the struggle against the occupation until it disappears.'"

Friday sermon by Minister of Religious Affairs, Mahmoud Al-Habbash. Chairman Mahmoud Abbas is in the audience.
Al-Habbash emphasizes that the believing Muslim should never give up or despair, but should stand resolute in the face of difficulty, because anything else is not complete faith in Allah:

     "Al-Aqsa will be Al-Aqsa only, and Palestine will belong only to its people. That's the end of the road. That's what we must be certain of, to believe in… We, Allah be praised, are not heretics and not misled; rather, we follow the path of Muhammad, Allah willing. Until Allah has His word – we will continue in this. We base ourselves on justice, we are resolute upon our land, and adhere to our rights. [Even if] they (i.e., Israel) burn our fields, cut down our trees, burn our mosques, destroy our homes, arrest, kill – we remain here, and they will depart; they will leave. Upon this land there shall remain only that which is useful to people, while the chaff passes with the wind."
