Israel referred to as "the Zionist entity" in the official PA daily

Headline: “Real Madrid to open schools in Israel"
"European [football] champion, Real Madrid, announced on its website that it has signed an agreement with the Zionist entity (i.e., Israel) to open five schools in the occupied territories. The royal club (“Real Madrid”) said on its official website that it will open schools in the cities of Dimona, Holon, Arabeh, Ramle, and Kfar Kassem.
Football fans in the Arab world and in Egypt were disturbed by the announcement, since it came only a few days after the royal club signed an agreement with Egypt to open an academy in the land of the Pharaohs. Real Madrid’s Director of Institutional Relations, Emilio Butragueño, signed the Egyptian agreement, and then immediately traveled to the occupied territories to sign an additional agreement with Israel.”
