Embroidered map of "Palestine" shows all of Israel covered in the Palestinian flag

This political map erasing Israel was broadcast during a PA TV report on an event for youth sponsored by the Palestinian Authority Ministry of Education. Above the map is the word "Palestine" and to the right of the map is the date "Nov. 15, 1988," the date that Yasser Arafat declared Palestinian statehood. According to this PA map, PA statehood started in 1988 and the State of "Palestine" replaces Israel.
