The official Palestinian Authority daily has published the logo (left) chosen by Fatah for upcoming celebrations of its 48th anniversary, and among the many symbols adorning it is a map of “Palestine” that includes all of Israel.

Palestinian Media Watch, which reported the story, also noted that official PA maps follow this same policy of excluding Israel.

PalWatch describes the logo in-depth: “Other symbols central to Fatah ideology also appear in the logo, including a rifle and a key symbolizing the Palestinian claim of ownership to houses within Israel (see letters in yellow). The pattern in the map is reminiscent of the Palestinian keffiyeh-scarf. The dove breaking the chain symbolizes the freeing of all Palestinian prisoners. The golden dome represents both Islam and the Palestinian claim to Jerusalem.”

Abbas Draws Fire From Palestinians for Appearing to Cry at Peres Funeral

An image that appeared to show Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas crying at the funeral of the late Israeli President...

The accompanying text in the newspaper reads (translation provided by PalWatch):

“Senior Fatah official in the Gaza Strip, Yahya Rabah, stressed that the movement this year will hold a big, central rally in the Gaza Strip on the day of the 48th anniversary of the beginning of the Palestinian revolution. Rabah explained to Ma’an that the event will be held considering the atmosphere of reconciliation and unity that has prevailed in the Palestinian arena in the last few weeks following the accomplishments in the battlefield (i.e., the Hamas-Israel military conflict in Gaza November 2012) and the accomplishments at the UN (UN vote granting “Palestine” observer status). The organizing committee for the 48th anniversary of the Fatah movement approved this year’s main anniversary logo… [The rally] will take place in Gaza to mark the 48th anniversary of the modern Palestinian revolution under the slogan ‘the state and the victory.'”
