Palestinian school books and educational television routinely teach children
to envision a world without Israel. One of the results can be seen in this
graduation ceremony sponsored by Fatah in which high school graduates in a
speech identify the Israeli cities Haifa, Acre, Jaffa and Jerusalem as part
of "Palestine."

The following is an excerpt from the speech by the high school graduates:

Sign on stage: "Tribute to high school graduates under the auspices of
Mahmoud Abbas, Fatah."
Male graduate: "In the name of the Shahids (Martyrs), in the name of the
prisoners, in the name of the stone and the rifle."
Female graduate: "In the name of Fatah, the school that taught us the
meaning of nationalism."
Male graduate: "in the name of Palestine: Haifa, Acre, Jaffa, and our Arab
Jerusalem."
Female graduate: "In the name of Palestine: Gaza, the West Bank and the flag
of national unity."
...
Male graduate: "Fatah is [still] with the rifle. And our rifles are not
rusty even if they have fired thousands of bullets."
[Al-Filistiniya TV (Fatah), July 28, 2009]
