PA Minister of Social Affairs, Majida Al-Masri, called for Palestinian unity and reconciliation between Fatah and Hamas in order to accelerate the liberation of Palestine – all of Palestine (with no state of Israel)
The following is the report on the event in the official PA daily:
“The women of Palestine marked March 8 with a central rally, attended by a group of released female prisoners from the various districts of the West Bank. Participating in the events were Minister for Women’s Affairs, Rabiha Dhiab; Minister of Prisoners’ Affairs, Issa Karake; Minister of Social Affairs, Majida Al-Masri… and representatives from the territories occupied in 1948
Al-Masri sharply condemned the Israel Prison Services for its violations against the [hunger striking] prisoner Shalabi… We demand of everyone to push ahead with reconciliation [between Fatah and Hamas] and to end the state of division, so that we will be able to stand against the occupation, to halt its activities against our prisoners, and to turn to the struggle for the liberation of Palestine – all of Palestine.'” PalWatch (H/T JDL-UK)
FATAH and HAMAS both agree that Israel has no right to exist
The Palestinian Authority makes no attempt to educate its people towards peace and coexistence with Israel. On the contrary, from every possible platform it repeatedly rejects Israel’s right to exist, presents the conflict as a religious battle for Islam, depicts the establishment of Israel as an act of imperialism, and perpetuates a picture of the Middle East, both verbally and visually, in which Israel does not exist at all. Israel’s destruction is said to be both inevitable and a Palestinian obligation.
Our real goal is the end of Israel
The following description of Israel’s founding in a Palestinian schoolbook represents the dominant dogma about Israel: “Palestine’s war ended with a catastrophe that is unprecedented in history, when the Zionist gangs stole Palestine … and established the State of Israel.” [Arabic Language, Analysis, Literature and Criticism, grade 12, p. 104]
This official PA map of “Palestine,” depicting Palestinian rule over all of Israel, was used in an official PA TV public service ad that ran daily for 3 months. Similar maps presenting all of Israel as “Palestine” appear in Palestinian schoolbooks and are shown regularly on PATV.
FATAH official admits that peace with Israel has never been our goal
The Palestinian Authority paints a picture – both verbally and visually – of a world in which Israel does not exist. Children’s educational TV teaches that Palestine currently is a “state” (Arabic “dawla” = state) covering 27,000 sq. km – i.e., an area that includes all of Israel (the entire West Bank and Gaza Strip total only 6220 sq. km). Moreover, all Israel’s cities and infrastructure are referred to as “Palestinian”: “Palestinian ports … [are] Haifa, Jaffa, Ashkelon, Eilat, Ashdod, and Gaza”.
Maps provide visual reinforcement for this perception: Israel does not exist on any map; its area is marked as “Palestine.” Maps showing the entire area of Israel covered with the Palestinian flag are routinely displayed at official PA events.
PA broadcasts TV programs that claim Israeli cities are actually Palestinian
