Palestinian TV show: There is no such thing as Israel

"The Palestinians there [near Haifa] need to emphasize to everyone that this area is Palestinian.”

By May 17, 2019
A new video released by Palestinian Media Watch that translates a program on official Palestinian TV teaches Palestinian children that Israel does not exist.
 
On the video, the teacher addresses a Palestinian student named Faisal and explains, “Faisal lives in the occupied Palestinian lands in the Tamra area,” referring to an area near Haifa. “On the school radio he broadcasts Palestinian songs and tries to spread the consciousness within him and his love for Palestine to all the surrounding cities and villages. This is very nice, particularly when they [Israelis] are trying to keep that area Israeli, but the Palestinians there need to emphasize to everyone that this area is Palestinian.”
 
Faisal responds to the host by telling the children who sit next to him that “there is no such thing as Israel...Israel can occupy Palestine, but it cannot occupy the Palestinian child’s memory.”
 
Faisal’s comments are met with applause.
 
The video originally aired on April 26, about two weeks before Nakba Day,  the day after the Gregorian calendar date for Israeli Independence Day.
 
On Nakba Day, Palestinian leaders and Israel’s Arab MKs used the opportunity to attack Israel as the Jewish state.
