Map-shaped monument in Bethlehem square replaces all of Israel with "Palestine"

After the UN vote in November 2012, the PA built a monument in a central square in Bethlehem called "The State Monument," which shows the "State of Palestine." However, the model of "Palestine" also includes all of Israel, thereby erasing it completely. The monument celebrates the UN vote on statehood as well as the first PLO/Fatah terror attack against Israel in 1965, which is seen as the beginning of the Palestinian "revolution" and Fatah's anniversary date. The words on the map-shaped monument are: "Birth certificate of the State of Palestine - Nov. 29, 2012. The outbreak of the glorious revolution - Jan. 1, 1965"
