PA kids TV teach all Israeli cities are "occupied" (PMW)

Palestinian Media Watch shows a children's TV show, shown last week, that refers to a series of Israeli cities as "occupied."

TV host to girl: "You live in Jerusalem. Do you visit the 1948 occupied cities (Israeli cities)?"
Girl (Lujayn): "I’ve been to Hebron."
TV host: "No, Hebron is a city [in the Palestinian Authority] that we all can enter. The occupied cities – such as Lod, Ramle, Haifa, Jaffa, Acre (all Israeli cities) – have you visited them?"
Girl: “I’ve been to Haifa and Jaffa.”
TV host: "Tell us, are they beautiful?"
Girl: "Yes…"
TV host: "We hope all children of Palestine will be able to go to the occupied territories, which we don't know and have never been able to see. Personally, I have never been there."
Isn't it interesting that they do not refer to Hebron as "occupied," but Haifa is?
