PMW has documented that the
official maps of the Palestinian Authority - as displayed in its
offices, at PA and Fatah events, and in schoolbooks - erase all of
Israel and replace it with "Palestine."
Professional unions and private organizations also display maps
depicting all of Israel as "Palestine." At a meeting of the General
Union of Palestinian Writers last week, the union´s logo was on
prominent display, showing a rifle and a quill over a map of the
entire area of "Palestine" that replaced Israel.
President Barack Obama has criticized such maps as a security threat
to Israel -- in the same category as the threat from terrorist groups
who want to destroy Israel:
"I will never compromise when it comes to Israel´s security. Not when
there are still voices that deny the Holocaust. Not when there are
terrorist groups and political leaders committed to Israel´s
destruction. Not when there are maps across the Middle East that
don´t even acknowledge Israel´s existence." [AIPAC Conference, June

PA schoolbooks, government ministries, and other public as well as
private bodies whose logos replace all of Israel with "Palestine."
