PA depicts a world without Israel
"Palestine" replaces 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.
"Palestine" replaces Israel
The Palestinian Authority paints a picture - both verbally and visually - of a world in which Israel does not exist. Children’s educational TV teaches that Palestine currently is a "state" (Arabic "dawla" = state) covering 27,000 sq. km - i.e., an area that includes all of Israel (the entire West Bank and Gaza Strip total only 6220 sq. km). Moreover, all Israel’s cities and infrastructure are referred to as "Palestinian": “Palestinian ports ... [are] Haifa, Jaffa, Ashkelon, Eilat, Ashdod, and Gaza". [PA TV (Fatah), Sept. 1 2008].

Maps provide visual reinforcement for this perception: Israel does not exist on any map; its area is marked as "Palestine." Maps showing the entire area of Israel covered with the Palestinian flag are routinely displayed at official PA events.

This educational documentary, depicting all parts of Israel as “Palestine," has been broadcast repeatedly on PA TV (Fatah) from 2007 – Oct 1, 2010:

“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 up to Haifa, in the Carmel Mountains. Haifa is a well-known Palestinian port. [Haifa] enjoyed a respected 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 lake of Tiberias [Kinneret- sea of Galilee]. Jaffa, an ancient coastal city, is the bride of the sea, and Palestine’s gateway to the world.”

A Palestinian city in the Nazareth district, located 6 kilometers north of the city and considered one the Galilee’s largest cities... The village was seized by the Zionist occupation on May 15, 1948, and its residents left for good… The name of Sepphoris, like the rest of the Palestinian cities whose residents were expelled, was changed to a Hebrew name, and now this principal city is known as the settlement Tzipori.”

Israel is "a new phenomenon that has no basis in history" and "Palestine is from the River to the Sea"

Op-ed by Jihad Al-Khazen published in the London-based Al-Hayat newspaper

Headline: “The lobby attributes Israel’s crimes to its enemies”
      “I came across the Near East Report for March [2016] published by the Jewish lobby AIPAC. A torture [to read]. All of the terror in Israel is attributed to its enemies, clearly and scandalously relying on Congress’ support of the occupation, killing, and destruction. There was a main article titled The Island of Stability in the Middle East Emphasizes the Importance of the Strategy of the US-Israel Alliance. I tell you that this alliance is responsible for the lack of stability in the Middle East, and that Israel’s terror is what started all the other terror – from Al-Qaeda to ISIS, and everything in between… Congress members are talking about ‘the Palestinian terror.’ I tell them that the terror is Israel, and that this is terror funded by the [US] Congress, instead of it transferring funds to poor Americans. 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.”

Official PA TV program Flower of Hope, interview with PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas about the establishment of a center for cancer treatment.
Abbas explains the importance of establishing a center for cancer treatment and thanks donors who have already given money for its establishment.

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas
: "As we are building up man and his health, we are building an economy, agriculture, industry, and laws. All this exists, praise Allah, and is moving ahead naturally. There are many obstacles. I do not deny that countless obstacles and difficulties stand before us, but all of these are no match against our will. We have been under occupation for 67 or 68 years (i.e., since Israel’s establishment in 1948). Others would have sunk into despair and frustration. However, we are determined to reach our goal because our people stands behind us."

"Al-Asifa" was a pseudonym for Fatah in its first years. It later became the name of Fatah’s military wing in the 1960s and 1970s. The name "Al-Asifa" is sometimes used as a synonym for the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades – Fatah’s military wing today.

Dalal Mughrabi led the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history, known as the Coastal Road massacre, in 1978, when she and other Fatah terrorists hijacked a bus on Israel's Coastal Highway, killing 37 civilians, 12 of them children, and wounding over 70.

PA-funded youth magazine: Israeli city of Umm Al-Fahm is in “occupied Palestine” 
Source: Zayzafuna magazine, Mar. 1, 2016
"The occupied city of Umm Al-Fahm"
“Umm Al-Fahm, or Umm Al-Nour as its residents call it, is an Arab city, all of whose residents are Muslim, and is located in the Triangle (i.e., a concentration of Israeli-Arab towns and villages in northern Israel) area, and more precisely in its north, in the north of the center of occupied Palestine. The Mamluks founded it in 1265 (sic., some archeological sites around the town date back as far as the Iron Age – 1200-600 BCE), and it was given to Israel in 1949 according to the truce (Hudna) with Jordan, or what is known as the Rhodes Agreement (sic., apparently referring to the Lausanne Conference of 1949, see below). Israeli forces entered it on May 22, 1949…  The stereotype of Umm Al-Fahm held by the Jewish sector is that it is the most extremist Arab town, and this is because of its residents’ resolve, their preservation of the Palestinian nationalism, and their strong hatred of the Israeli occupation.”

The Lausanne Conference of 1949 was convened by the UN Conciliation Commission for Palestine (UNCCP) in Lausanne, Switzerland April 27 – Sept. 12, 1949. It was attended by representatives of Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria and the Arab Higher Committee and refugee delegations, representing Arab refugees from Israel. Its purpose was to resolve disputes arising from the 1948 war between Israel and its neighboring Arab countries.
