Official Palestinian Authority television again is teaching children that “Israel is our land – the 1948 lands” at the same time Mahmoud Abbas foams at the mouth for “two states for two peoples.”
Perhaps he means one state of Hamas and one for Fatah.
Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) has translated and published the script of an official PA television children’s show broadcast on October 4.
This is not new. PMW for years has exposed the two-faced act of the Palestinian Authority, but except for several Congressmen who are not deaf and blind, no one in the Obama administration, let alone the United Nations and European Union, questions Abbas’ sincerity that he wants to make peace with Israel “along its 1967 borders.”
A boy who was a guest in the PA television how said to the host, “I have never entered Israel or Gaza.”
“What Israel? It’s our land,” responded the host.
The lad corrected himself and replies, ”Israel is our land – the 1948 lands.”
My, he is such a quick learner!
The host didn’t take any chances and reminded him, “It’s our land, occupied Palestine.
“Our land, occupied Palestine. It’s Haifa, Jaffa [and] Acre. 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.”
If that is the case, the Palestinian Authority denies even the borders for Israel that the United Nations drew up when it recognized Israel as state.
Haifa and Jaffa were part of the severed and miniscule country that was proposed but never accepted by the Arab world, which went to war and finally had to settle for a larger Israel until the next war, which it again lost.
Abbas knows he can not eliminate Israel with guns, so he has craftily built on international anti-Semitism and the naïve American-led peace process to sell a poisonous portion of snake oil.
Time will tell if Abbas wins support from a two-thirds majority on the U.N. Security Council to accept the Palestinian Authority as a member of the United Anti-Zionist Nations.
Either way, historians one day will scratch their heads trying to figure out why European countries, led by supposedly intelligent people, declare themselves as friends of Israel while recognizing a Palestinian Authority that teaches its children that Israel does not exist.
The explanation, if there is one, may be the same as why Chamberlain believed Hitler.
