PLO youth magazine Zayzafuna demonizes Israel as the "enemy"

“The director of the education department and the mayor praised the role of the deceased leader [Yasser Arafat]… and his outstanding ability to unite the Palestinian ranks and aim the compass towards the Israeli enemy.”

Note: Zayzafuna is a PLO magazine for children 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. PMW’s book Deception includes a chapter on Zayzafuna. Following PMW’s exposure of Hitler glorification in the February 2011 issue, UNESCO halted its funding of the magazine. View UNESCO’s statement and PMW's bulletin on the December 2011 issue of the magazine.
