Israel Must Be Destroyed [Excerpts]
November 7, 2011: The Palestinian Authority (which actually only represents 60 percent of Palestinians, who live in the West Bank) is in trouble again. Palestinian Authority (PA) leader, Mahmoud Abbas, was recently seen in an Egyptian TV interview stating flatly that the PA would never recognize the state of Israeland was determined to destroy Israel. While anyone who follows Palestinian Arab language media (especially TV) knows this, the PA represents itself to the UN and the non-Moslem world as receptive to peace with Israel, and with the establishment of a Palestinian state that would coexist with Israel. Yet Palestinian TV and newspapers constantly depict Israelas, well, not existing. Maps of the area show Israelas part of a greater Palestine. This is all done in a matter-of-fact way, especially in schools.
The other 40 percent of Palestinians are in Gaza, and controlled by Hamas (recognized worldwide as a terrorist organization). Hamas is more direct about its goal of destroying Israel, and does not pretend to be negotiating a two-state solution.
