At the official launch of two German-funded UNRWA projects in southern Lebanon earlier this month, Director of UNRWA Affairs in Lebanon, Ann Dismorr, posed with a map that erases the State of Israel and presents all of it as “Palestine.”

Palestinian Media Watch, which first published the story, noted that  above the map is the Palestinian flag and the inscription “Arab Palestine.” The neighboring countries of Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon are all named on the map as is the Mediterranean Sea. Israel is not mentioned or designated anywhere. Several places and cities, including some governed by Israel and others controlled by the Palestinian Authority, are included on the map of “Palestine”: The Negev desert, Be’er Sheva, Rafah (Gaza), Hebron, Bethlehem, Jerusalem, Jaffa, Haifa, Acre, Tiberias and the Dead Sea.

The map was presented at the launch of an UNRWA project to improve the water supply network and rehabilitate shelters in the Rashidieh Camp, and was a gift from the “Palestinian Women’s Union,” the Palestinian Arab  news site pn-news.net reported.
