Abbas presenteert heel Israel als "mijn land"

 
De twee gezichten van Fatah: in de New York Times verklaart Abbas dat hij naar een staat binnen de pre-1967 wapenstilstandslijnen streeft, of dat suggereert hij in elk geval, maar ondertussen wordt op een Fatah bijeenkomst het hele land als Palestijns bezongen. Ook op de officiele PA TV en in media die gelieerd zijn aan Fatah, wordt het hele land als Palestijns voorgesteld en soms zelfs expliciet tot "bevrijding" van het hele land opgeroepen.

Entertainment for Abbas and PA leaders:  

All of Israel is "my land"

Contrary to the PA leaders' claim that they recognize Israel's right to exist, their controlled TV and cultural events continue to reinforce
the message of non-recognition of Israel by depicting all of Israel as "Palestine."

At a recent Fatah event in the presence of Mahmoud Abbas and many other senior PA officials, a Palestinian singer defined all of Israel as being Palestinian. He sings that "my land" and "our coast" span from Rosh Hanikra in Israel's north to Rafah in the Gaza Strip in the South, and from Haifa on Israel's Western coast to Beit Shean on Israel's Eastern border.

The Fatah members filling the large auditorium are shown clapping enthusiastically to the song. The event was rebroadcast on PA TV on May 12, 2011.

The following are the words of the song at the Fatah event:

"We commit and promise to stand behind you, oh Mahmoud Abbas, until Judgment Day. I am returning to you, the purest land, oh land of the free. No matter how long the nights of exile, I am returning to you, oh land. From Rafah to Rosh Hanikra (northern Israel) our coast, and Beit Shean (Israeli city). Above your soil, oh my land, is a picture of Garden of Eden. From Rafah to Rosh Hanikra our coast, and Beit Shean. Above your soil, oh my land, is a picture of Garden of Eden. From Rafah to Rosh Hanikra, north and south, are the picture's borders. From Haifa (Israeli city) and Tantura to the [Jordan] valley (i.e., all of Israel). I am returning to you, the purest land, oh land of the free."

[PA TV (Fatah), Feb. 27 and May 12, 2011]


On April 13, PA TV broadcast a different song presenting all Israeli cities as Palestinian.
