Photo of PLO official Issa Karake taking part in a graduation ceremony at a girls’ high school shows school logo with map of “Palestine” replacing Israel

"Karake also took part in a graduation ceremony of the 13th class of female students of the Jorat Al-Sham’a Junior High School for Girls in [the] Bethlehem [district]. The ceremony was held as a sign of loyalty for the male and female prisoners in the presence of dignitaries from the Bethlehem district, the [Bethlehem] Directorate of Education (i.e., branch of the PA Ministry of Education), and released prisoners.”

The article includes an image from the graduation ceremony in which Head of PLO Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Karake is seen handing out a diploma. The sign in the background shows the logo of the Jorat Al-Sham’a Junior High School for Girls, which is subordinate to the PA. The logo consists of the PA map of “Palestine” that presents all of Israel as “Palestine” together with the PA areas covered in the Palestinian flag, and behind it is a key symbolizing the “right of return” of the Palestinian refugees.
