US Congress now has a map
in which "Palestine" replaces Israel

This should not come as a surprise. The woman, Rashida Tlaib, identifies herself as a Palestinian American, and as Palestinian Media Watch has reported, the official Palestinian map used by the Palestinian Authority and Fatah presents a world without Israel in which all of Israel is "Palestine."

As seen above, the PA's map of "Palestine" teaches Palestinian children that the "geographical area" of the "State of Palestine" encompasses all of Israel. Fatah takes it one step further by putting the rifle next to the map, indicating that through the rifle Israel will become "Palestine."
While the map in US Congress is insulting to all those who care about Israel and peace, the map that the PA uses in its education of its children is far more problematic. The map and the ideology accompanying it, actively destroy any chance for peace. How can we expect Palestinian children, who are taught that the correct map of the world has no Israel, to ever consider living in peace with the country they are taught should not even exist?
