One of the many questions that no Western politician or reporter ever bothers to ask Mahmoud Abbas is whether he controls the party, Fatah, that he leads, and the official TV station that the PA runs.

Because if he doesn't, then that means that he cannot even lead his own party, let alone a nation.

If he does, then that means that he supports destroying Israel.

Palestinian Media Watch shows a screenshot from a cartoon in official PA TV, as well as a similar entry in Fatah's official Facebook page.

Official PA TV broadcast a cartoon last month that showed a math teacher pointing to a map of "Palestine" as an example of "a number that is indivisible." The map included both PA areas and all of Israel.

Text on blackboard under map: "Palestine: A number that is indivisible." [Official PA TV, Feb. 21, 2014]

Fatah also continues to promote this idea. Fatah's Facebook administrator recently stated that before teaching them "to read and write," Palestinians teach their children that "Palestine" is indivisible, so that they "will only agree to one rule, which cannot be added to, subtracted from, or calculated: that Palestine cannot be divided":

"We educate our children on the national anthem every morning. They will memorize the anthem of 'return'; they will engrave the four-colored [Palestinian] flag on their hearts; they will learn the foundations of the revolution before they learn to read and write; they will only agree to one rule, which cannot be added to, subtracted from, or calculated: that Palestine cannot be divided."
[Facebook, "Fatah-The Main Page," March 5, 2014]

The text was accompanied by a photo of a teacher pointing to a map of "Palestine" replacing all of Israel drawn on the blackboard, with the explanatory text rejecting Israeli jurisdiction over Israeli cities: "Acre, Haifa, Jaffa, Ramle, Safed, Beit Shean, were and will remain Palestinian cities."
Just some more inconvenient truths that must be hushed up by the Western media and politicians.

It's all psychology. People are emotionally invested in the idea that peace is possible. It has been a centerpiece of US foreign policy for decades. Countless books and articles have been written to try to find a solution.

But the underlying assumption - that both parties really want peace - is not true. There is virtually no peace camp on the Palestinian Arab side, as we saw yesterday from someone who passionately is looking for one.  Yet  people who are emotionally invested in peace simply refuse to accept that the other side is not like them.

To the Palestinian Arabs, the word "peace" means something completely contradictory to its meaning in English. "Peace" is a weapon, a keyword that melts Western hearts from which they can achieve political and military goals without effort.

Have you ever once heard Abbas or Erekat or Ashrawi talk about how they want to see relations with Israel look like the day after an agreement is signed? Have any of them waxed poetic about Jews and Arabs working together on education, medicine, construction, investments, about Jews and Muslims being able to freely visit holy sites in the other country, about joint economic and business ventures? They never do. "Peace" does not mean peace, it means "get as much land as we can now and use it to gain more land later until Israel is gone." Day One of the "peace agreement" will not usher in anything remotely resembling real peace.

It will begin the next phase of a long war.

We know this. We've proven it hundreds of times, using the very words of PLO and Fatah officials, of their official media and social networking sites. Not random people in the street, not stupid people on Twitter - we are talking official, well-thought out stated positions that are said explicitly in Arabic by Palestinian Arab leaders, officials and PA-paid pundits. And surveys prove that the poisonous bile being told to the people have made them even more radical compared to their Arab neighbors.

Unfortunately, empirical proof is not enough to convince people who are emotionally tied to a lie. Hell, even a violent uprising involving suicide bombings that was planned and directed by the PLO leader wasn't enough to convince Westerners that Palestinian Arabs aren't interested in real peace. Even their dancing and celebrating on 9/11 and their making Bin Laden into a hero didn't convince Westerners of their real intentions. It is impossible to convince someone of something when they don't want to know the truth.

Especially when they don't have to pay the price for being wrong.
