A Palestinian Authority TV children's program taught Palestinian youth to deny Israel's right to exist and to anticipate Israel's destruction. When a young boy said he had never visited Israel, the moderator immediately interrupted him and said: "What Israel? It's our land."
PA TV children's programs regularly teach Palestinian youth to view Israel as illegitimate with no right to exist, as Palestinian Media Watch has documented numerous times.
The following is the text of the recent example of official PA TV educating children to anticipate Israel's destruction:
Boy, guest on show: "I have never entered Israel or Gaza."
TV host: "What Israel? It's our land."
Boy: "Israel is our land - the 1948 lands."
Host: "It's our land, occupied Palestine."
Boy: "The 1948 lands."
Host: "Our land, occupied Palestine. It's Haifa, Jaffa, Acre (i.e., Israeli cities). These are our occupied lands, the 1948 lands that Israel occupied in 1948. Israel occupied them in 1948. These are Palestinian lands and will remain Palestinian. Allah willing, they will return to us some day and will not be under the rule of the occupation."
