The Palestinian Authority Ministry of Education posted images on its Facebook page earlier this month showing several maps of “Palestine” that erase the State of Israel.

According to a report by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), while participating in a school event marking Palestinian “Keffiyeh Day” (where students wear Arab headdresses), Palestinian schoolchildren at the Kafr Qaddum High School for Girls in Qalqilya received this message: “Palestine: The entire land is ours, from the [Mediterranean] Sea to the [Jordan River].”

The P.A. ministry wrote that similar celebrations were held “in all of the homeland’s schools.”

“Denial of Israel’s right to exist and the use of the P.A. map of ‘Palestine’ erasing Israel’s existence in an educational context … is official P.A. policy,” stated PMW.
