PA: "Palestine" replaces all of Israeland is "indivisible"
Fatah Facebook: "We educate our children... [so that] they will only agree to one rule, which cannot be added to, subtracted from, or calculated: that Palestine cannot be divided"
"We educate our children on the national anthem every morning. They will memorize the anthem of 'return'; they will engrave the four-colored [Palestinian] flag on their hearts; they will 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." [Facebook, "Fatah-The Main Page," March 5, 2014]Fatah is not moderate! They are extreme, radical anti-Israel Arabs.
The text was accompanied by a photo of a teacher pointing to a map of "Palestine" replacing all of Israel drawn on the blackboard, with the explanatory text rejecting Israeli jurisdiction over Israeli cities: "Acre, Haifa, Jaffa, Ramle, Safed, Beit Shean, were and will remain Palestinian cities."
I so sincerely wish that the Israeli Government from Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu on down would take the statements of the Fatah seriously. It's not like this is all secret. Another generation of Arabs is being raised to deny Israel's existance. Therefore according to simple logic, we can't have peace with them, and they do not want true peace with us.
We must stop trying to imagine, guess what Arab reactions will be to our peace proposals. If you read carefully, you'll see that Israeli politicians don't quote the Arabs. They guess, imagine, think that the Arabs will react in peaceful ways to all the "deals" being proposed by the Americans and the Leftists. There are only a couple of sites where you can find the truth about the Arab plans for Israel. One is the PMW and the other is David Bedein's Behind the News in Israel. Here's an excerpt from a recent post on his site.
Arafat and the Jewish State: Setting the Record StraightI highly suggest that you subscribe to these news sites.
- On March 13, 2014, Secretary of State John Kerry told Congress that he views Israel’s principled requirement of recognition as the nation state of the Jewish People “as a mistake.” He added that the late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat “confirmed that he agreed it [Israel] would be a Jewish state” in 1988 and in 2004.
- However, the truth is just the opposite: the U.S. administration at the time did not believe that Arafat’s words satisfied their goal of his recognizing Israel’s right to exist. Moreover, Arafat’s 1988 statement does not come close to meeting the requirement for the Palestinians to recognize Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish People.
- In the last quarter of 1988, an intense effort was undertaken to facilitate the opening of a diplomatic dialogue between the PLO and the U.S. Previously, all U.S. administrations had strictly adhered to U.S. commitments, originally given by Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, that required the PLO to recognize Israel, accept UN Security Council Resolution 242, and renounce terrorism as prerequisites for any dialogue between the parties.
- Arafat did not issue a clear declaration recognizing Israel as a Jewish state, but only summarized the language of UN General Assembly Resolution 181. The U.S. government concluded that Arafat’s statement did not meet Washington’s demand that the PLO unequivocally recognize the State of Israel, and thus no dialogue was launched between the U.S. and the PLO at that time.
