While participating in a school event marking Palestinian Keffiyeh Day, Palestinian school children at the Kafr Qaddum High School for Girls in Qalqilya received a strong message: “Palestine – the entire land is ours, from the [Mediterranean] Sea to the [Jordan] River”
Images from the event posted by the PA Ministry of Education show that several PA maps of “Palestine” that erase Israel were prominently displayed at the event. The PA ministry wrote that similar celebrations were held “in all the homeland’s schools.”
Denial of Israel's right to exist and the use of the PA map of “Palestine” erasing Israel's existence in an educational context in the PA is official PA policy. Palestinian Media Watch has documented hundreds if not thousands of examples of the PA map displayed in educational settings, be it at events, in schoolbooks, in magazines distributed to youth at PA schools, at youth movement activities, or elsewhere.
The slogan that “Palestine” stretches “from the Mediterranean Sea to the Jordan River” is also a central part of PA vocabulary. Earlier this year, a Fatah official explained that Fatah’s goal is to destroy Israel, stressing that Palestinians will continue riots until “liberating… Palestine from the [Mediterranean] Sea to the [Jordan] River”
