A new television clip broadcast on official Palestinian Authority TV seems to indicate that the cities of Jerusalem, Haifa, Jaffa, Nazareth and Acre, as well as the Negev Desert, are parts of “Palestine.”
During fillers between sections of the program “Palestine This Morning,” several silvery-white marbles bearing the names of cities and areas come rolling out of what appears to be a green leaf. Along with names of towns under Palestinian control, such as Jericho, Nablus and Ramallah, the names of Israeli cities and regions are inscribed on some of the marbles as well, the Palestinian Media Watch group reported on Friday. By the end of the short filler, which has been broadcast regularly since May 6, the word “Palestine” can be seen towering above all the rolling marbles.
Earlier this month, the official Palestinian Authority daily paper published an op-ed piece which called Israel a “monstrosity,” whose creation was “a crime unprecedented in history.
The opinion piece, published in Al-Hayat Al-Jadida on May 7, said that “the occupation of Palestine was the greatest crime known to humanity” and noted that since 1948, the Palestinian people have been using “all the means and methods at (their) disposal” to regain their “stolen” land.
