1. Host: “In Palestine there are very beautiful historical sites and cultural and natural sites.. The city of Tiberias is one such area, where history, nature and water come together.”

Reporter: “The city of Tiberias is in northern Palestine, close to the Palestinian–Jordanian–Syrian border.” 

“Palestine” could not share a border with Syria unless Israel did not exist. Tiberias is in northern Israel and not “northern Palestine.”

2. Multiple choice question on PA TV quiz show “The Stars” for university students:

“The length of Palestine's coast, along the Mediterranean Sea from Rosh Hanikra to Rafah is: (1) 152 km. (2) 224 km. (3) 375 km.”

Representative from Bethlehem University answers: “224 km.”[His answer is confirmed correct.]

Rosh Hanikra is Israel's most northern coastal point, and the coast of “Palestine” would be 224 km. long only if Israel did not exist.

3. Amal Daraghmeh, chairman of the committee planning the “Palestine Conference for Public Relations, Communications and Media” said on PA TV that he hopes to include as many Palestinians as possible in the conference. The PA TV host responded: “Palestine is big—27,000 sq. km.”

The area of “Palestine” could not be 27,000 sq. kilometers unless Israel were to disappear, since the West Bank [Judea and Samaria] and Gaza together are only about 6,000 sq. kilometers.
