Fatah Facebook posts maps of “Palestine” erasing Israel

Images and text posted on the official Fatah Facebook page

The image on the left shows the PA map of “Palestine” that presents all of Israel as “Palestine” together with the PA areas. In the upper left corner are the Palestinian flag and the PLO emblem in the shape of an eagle; the flags and emblems of Egypt, Jordan, and Syria appear as well.

The image on the right shows the PA map of “Palestine.” Among the cities listed on the map are: “Tal Al-Rabia (i.e., Arabic translation of Tel Aviv; see note below),” “Askalan (i.e., Ashkelon),” and “Umm Al-Rashrash (i.e., Eilat).”

Posted text: “We would be happy if every one of us would note the name of their village or city, so that we will get to know Palestine’s beautiful cities and villages.”

Tal Al-Rabia is the Palestinians’ Arabic translation of Tel Aviv, to wrongly imply the existence of an Arab village of that name prior to Tel Aviv.
