Denying Israel’s existence is now a lucrative proposition for Palestinian Arabs. Palestinian Media Watch reports that during the month of Ramadan, official Palestinian Authority TV has been entertaining its viewers with quiz questions. PA TV reporters have taken to the the street to query Palestinians, rewarding a correct answer with a $100 prize sponsored by the Bank of Palestine, and two mobile phone companies, Jawwal and Wataniya.

Some of the questions, which PA TV chose to ask and later broadcast, present a world without Israel by defining the Israeli cities of Jaffa, Safed, and Ashdod, as well as Mount Meron as “Palestinian.”

Here are some of the reporter’s questions as translated by PMW.

PA TV reporter: “On the beach of which Palestinian village did the whale spew out the prophet Jonah? Naturally, it’s a coastal city.”

Man: “Ashdod.” (Israeli city on the Mediterranean coast)

PA TV reporter: “Ashdod is the correct answer… You win $100 from [the sponsor] Jawwal.”

PA TV reporter: “Which city did [Palestinian writer] Mustafa Dabbagh call ‘The city that fell from Heaven?'”

Man: “In Palestine or outside of Palestine?”

PA TV reporter: “In Palestine.”

Man: “Maybe Jaffa?” (Israeli city, part of Tel Aviv)

PA TV reporter: “Correct answer. Jaffa. You win $100 from [the sponsor] Wataniya Mobile.”

PA TV reporter: “A lake in Northern Palestine drained by the Israeli occupation. What is the name of the lake?”

Man: “The Sea of Galilee?” (In north east Israel)

PA TV reporter: “Think.”

Man: “The Hula [Lake].” (The Hula Lake is in Northern Israel)

PA TV reporter: “You’ve earned $100 from the [sponsor] Bank of Palestine.”

PA TV reporter: “Name the Palestinian village in Northern Safed whose name means ‘beetle’ in the Syriac language, and whose residents are mostly Druze .”

PA TV reporter: “The correct answer is Hurfeish, the Palestinian village in Northern Safed whose name means ‘beetle’. Congratulations. You win $100 from [the sponsor] Jawwal.” (Hurfeish is a Druze village in Northern Israel.)

PA TV reporter: “What is the highest mountain in Palestine?”

Man: “Mt. Meron.” (Mt. Meron is in Northern Israel.)

Another question presented Israel’s eastern border from Eilat in the south to the Golan Heights in the north as “Palestine’s” border with Jordan, likewise ignoring the existence of Israel:

PA TV reporter: “[Which] country has the longest border with Palestine and what is [the border’s] length?”

Man: “The country is Jordan and [the border is] 586 [km.]”

PA TV reporter: “Congratulations. You win $100 from [the sponsor] Jawwal.” (“Palestine” in this measurement includes all of Israel from Eilat until the Golan Heights.)

    Peace now! The corporate killers thieves and lawyers have been making money offof weapons sold to these slaves for years. They turned israel into a den of thieves and hedonistic carnal animals. Moses would smash a tablet on their head for losing their sense and forgetting the point of all religion was the golden rule like rabbi hillel said.

    Everyone knows israel is destroying jewish heritage altogether and replacing it with capitalism.

    Everyone but the jews from new york apparently. They think a land in another country they are not born in belongs to them because they are too dumb to understand the real meaning their own culture cause they were put in camps and were trained how to think mainly by that experience. they are making money off of the deal like vultures too.

    Lets let these kids watch whay they want. Half of them will be killed by israel before adult hood anyways!

    Well if u compare those shows to the western media they still sound relatively sweet.

    Here in the “west” we brainwash babies with mattel products and pokemon to make them better consumers before we expose them to as much drugs sex and violenc we can before they are thrown out into the world to serve their cannibal like corporate masters…

    Hmmm… Maybe they are rightt to teach israel wont exist in a few years? The USA will be lucky if it exists by the time these children are grown!
    if we keep riding the money train around tours of auchwietz the complete fabric of our.society will crumble until we are all yelling allahu akbar.

    Look what the system did to my jewish culture!! Hitler works in mysterious ways i guess. He hollowedouteuropean jews like a jack o lanern and then threwthem tback into the haystack litdp

    Life isnt a game u win or lose.

    Why doesn’t Netanyahu use evidence like this to call a halt to the bogus “peace talks” before he releases murderers?

    Ten answers, “correct” in the course of 10 minutes of video.
    The other eight hours od video were deleted because they consisted of a variety of dumb answers and many other answers which were rather favourable to Israel ! ! !
