Symbols play an important role in Palestinian society, as the
attempts to build a national identity.
Four prominent Palestinian symbols: blood, the stone, the map
that erases all of Israel, and the flag, are brought together in a
striking new video-clip that is part of a new regular broadcast on
Palestinian Authority TV, October 30, 2002.
The clip opens with a picture of a beating heart dripping blood. As
image changes, numerous fists grasping rocks are seen growing out
outline of "Palestine" that erases all of Israel, symbolizing the
Palestinians fighting everywhere over the land. Finally, the
flag appears, first covering all of Israel and then establishing
above the outline of the land, symbolizing the demise of Israel.
