Palestinian Authority dictator, Fatah leader and PLO chairman Mahmoud Abbas showed the UN a map created for the occasion by the Negotiations Affairs Department of the PLO.

It is a new version of The Map That Lies, but it adds some additional lies and false implications, starting with the header - that these are maps of Palestinians' "historic compromise."

The first frame says "1917 - Historic Palestine."

That's a lie. Historic Palestine was on both sides of the Jordan and parts of Lebanon and didn't generally include most of the Negev.

In fact, the map shown here as a 1917 map is actually the British Mandate map of 1923; before that it included all of today's Jordan.

The second frame shows the proposed partition of Palestine by the Peel Commission. It was rejected by the Arabs, so it was never a "compromise" by the then-fictional "Palestinians."

The third frame is the UN partition plan, again completely rejected by the Arabs and therefore irrelevant. If they would have accepted it they could be celebrating the 72nd anniversary of Arab Palestine this year.

The fourth frame says "1967 Border Lines Endorsed By the PLO in 1988 as a Historic Compromise for Peace."  They were never "1967 border lines" or any borders; they are the 1949 Armistice cease fire lines. They were never meant to be considered a border. And before 1967 Palestinians didn't even claim them as their own land.

In 1988, the PLO issued a declaration of independence that said nothing about borders or Israel. It can only be implied to accept, at best, an Israel on the UN's recommended 1947 partition lines that the Arabs roundly rejected. A separate memorandum called for an international peace conference based on UN Resolutions 242 and 337, but it never said that it accepted those resolutions that would recognize Israel on the 1949 armistice lines. Now they tell the West that they made a historic compromise, but the language is slippery and far from clear.

As far as the fifth frame is concerned, notice that the PLO dropped the fourth frame from the old Map That Lies which shows the current areas controlled by the PA. There's a good reason for it - because the Trump Plan gives them more than double the amount of area they control now, and the fifth frame would look like a great deal if they compared it with the actual areas controlled by Palestinians now, as I pointed out when Abbas brandished  the old Map The Lies at the Arab League earlier this month:

Put all of this together, and you can see how much the PLO tries to fool the world by picking and choosing facts and half truths. Practically no reporters are competent and knowledgeable enough to confront the PLO with their slippery language that can be interpreted to make them sound flexible to Western ears but allows them to continue their policy of rejectionism and their aim of destroying Israel without lying in their official documents.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
