New Palestinian Fatah Logo Erases Israel From Existence

A new official logo celebrating Fatah’s 48th anniversary includes a map that shows all of Israel as “Palestine.”

by Rhonda Spivak, Jan 7, 2012

Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah-controlled Palestinian Authority (PA) has published a picture of the official logo chosen by Fatah,on the movement’s 48th anniversary. The logo features various symbols, including a map that erases Israel and refers only to ‘Palestine.’ The logo also has the number 48, the Palestinian flag, and the slogan for the 48th anniversary, ‘The state and the victory.’

The new Fatah logo is consistent with official PA maps used in official documents, government offices and schools that do not acknowledge Israel’s existence and mark all of Israel as ‘Palestine.’ Other symbols central to Fatah ideology also appear in the logo, including a rifle and a key symbolizing the Palestinian claim of ownership to houses within Israel (‘New Fatah logo erases Israel,’ PMW bulletin, December 12, 2012).
