Zayzafuna youth mag: The "State of Palestine" existed before the Maccabees existed

Zayzafuna published a page entitled Fun that presents what it calls Facts about "Palestine":
“Did you know that the State of Palestine existed before the Maccabees or the Israelis existed.”

Note: This is false history. There never was a state of Palestine or an ancient Palestinian Arab nation. The Nation of Israel had independence in the Land of Israel thousands of years ago, which is documented by historical sources as well as by archeological evidence.
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.
