Credit: PMW.(JNS.org) Fatah marked its 48th anniversary with a logo calling a map of all of Israel “Palestine,” along with the slogan “The state and the victory,” Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) reported. 

The logo, published Dec. 10 in the Palestinian Authority’s Al-Hayat Al-Jadida newspaper, also features a dove breaking a chain, symbolizing the “freeing of all Palestinian prisoners,” a golden dome representing “both Islam and the Palestinian claim to Jerusalem,” and a rifle for “the Palestinian claim of ownership to houses within Israel,” PMW explained.

While the Palestinians’ nonmember observer state status at the United Nations—obtained Nov. 29—is new, Fatah’s anniversary logo continues a longstanding PA trend of official maps that label Israeli territory as “Palestine.” Those maps can be found on PMW’s website here: http://palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=413
