Zayzafuna youth mag: Israeli city of Jaffa referred to as a "Palestinian city"

Column Lest We Forget:
“The Palestinian city of Jaffa lies on the eastern coast of the Mediterranean. It is one of the gateways from Palestine onto the sea, connecting Palestine to the countries of the Mediterranean basin and the world… The Jaffa port was opened in 1936, leading to the flourishing of the city and its economic activity…”

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.
