Images and text posted on the Facebook page of the PLO children’s magazine Zayzafuna A poster with the PA map of “Palestine” that presents all of Israel as “Palestine” together with the PA areas can be seen to the right on one of the photos, alongside the Palestinian anthem “Mawtini,” - “My Homeland.” Posted text: “The Zayzafuna Association for Development of Children’s Culture held a cultural activity at the Jaba’ High School for Girls / [PA Ministry of Education’s] Jerusalem Suburbs Education Directorate on Thursday, Nov. 24, 2016.” Zayzafuna is a PLO magazine for children partially funded by the PA. The magazine, which includes material written by both the magazine’s staff and child readers, represents the values of the educators and serves as a window into the minds of the Palestinian children submitting material to the magazine. Zayzafuna's website states that the magazine's advisory board is comprised of PA officials and educators, including Jihad Zakarneh, PA Deputy Minister of Education, and Abd Al-Hakim Abu Jamous, Head of the Media Department at the PA Ministry of Education. Since September 2015, Zayzafuna included a note on its second page thanking the PA Ministry of Finance for its financial support of the magazine (true as of the time of this writing, May 2016). In May 2011, the Deputy Chairman of the Zayzafuna organization Abd Al-Karim Ziyada explained on PA TV that the PA gives "a monthly payment of 10,000 shekels ($2,700) to cover the magazine's [costs]."
