The Palestinian Authority (PA) has made it abundantly clear in recent months that not only does it not recognize Israel as the Jewish state -- it doesn't recognize Israel's existence altogether.
Official PA TV broadcast a cartoon in late February showing a math teacher pointing to a map of Israel, with the words "Palestine: a number that is indivisible" underneath it. Palestinian Media Watch translated and exposed the cartoon.
Fatah, the faction headed by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, picked up the theme on its Facebook page two weeks ago.
On a Facebook post, Fatah wrote it educates its children to "learn the foundations of the revolution before they learn to read and write; they will only agree to one rule, which cannot be added to, subtracted from, or calculated: that Palestine cannot be divided."
Along with the text was a photo of a teacher pointing to a map of "Palestine" replacing all of Israel. The text alongside the map on the chalkboard reads "Akko, Haifa, Yafo, Ramle, Tzfat, Beit Shean, were and will remain Palestinian cities." The text claims Israeli cities not located over the 1949 Armistice line, which is being presented as possible borders in peace talks.
The demands on all of Israel continued on Fatah's Facebook in early March, when a map was displayed showing all of Israel colored in the checked pattern of the PA keffiyeh (headscarf). The PA flag beside the map indicates the intentions of PA sovereignty over all of the Jewish state.
PA rhetoric against Israel is an increasingly common phenomenon.
Just last Wednesday, a senior PA official and close confidante of Abbas called Israelis "an advanced instrument of evil" on PA TV, claiming "Allah will gather them so that we can kill them."
Similarly, around the March 11 anniversary of arch-terrorist Dalal Mughrabi's 1978 massacre of 37 Israelis, among them 12 children, the PA went into overdrive praising the mass murderer in a series of events.
At one event, Abbas's advisor on NGOs, Sultan Abu Al-Einen, commented "they [Israelis] are deluding themselves if they think the negotiations are our only choice. Let the young people hear me: Allah, honor us with Martyrdom. Allah, give us the honor of being part of the procession of Martyrs."
