PA-associated youth magazine: Lebanon is bordered by “occupied Palestine”

Headline: “Customs and traditions of nations around the world – Lebanon”
Prepared by: Suad Shawahneh, Jenin
“The Lebanese Republic is one of the Arab countries of the Levant, which is in southwest Asia. It is bordered by Syria on the northeast and by occupied Palestine [to the south.] To the west, it overlooks the Mediterranean Sea.”

Note: Zayzafuna's website states that the magazine's advisory board is comprised of Palestinian Authority officials and educators, including Jihad Zakarneh, PA Deputy Minister of Education, and Abd Al-Hakim Abu Jamous, Head of Media Department, PA Ministry of Education.
In May 2011, the Deputy Chairman of the
Zayzafuna organization Abd Al-Karim Ziyada explained on PA TV that the PA gives "a monthly payment of 10,000 shekels ($2,700) to cover the magazine's [costs]." [Official PA TV, May 9 and 13, 2011]
