The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) launched a German-funded project in southern Lebanon where the area’s Director of UNRWA Affairs, Ann Dismorr, posed with a map devoid of any trace of the State of Israel, instead presenting it as a map of “Palestine.”
Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) captured the UN representatives’ egregious actions and noted that above the map is the Palestinian flag and the inscription: “Arab Palestine.” The text at the bottom of the map also reads just “Palestine.”
Egypt, Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon are all identified on the map by name. Only Israel is erased from the U.N. map. What’s more, The Jewish State’s towns in the Negev desert, along with Be’er Sheva, Hebron, Bethlehem, Jerusalem, Jaffa, Haifa, Acre, Tiberias, and the Dead Sea are allocated to Palestine on the map.
The map was presented at the launch of an UNRWA project to improve the water supply and rehabilitate shelters in the Rashidieh Camp, according to PMW. The map was reportedly a gift from the “Palestinian Women’s Union.”
According to UNRWA’s website, Germany was represented at the ceremony by the Head of Economic Cooperation and Development at the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Lebanon.
High ranking Lebanese and Palestinian officials were also reportedly present at the event unveiling the Israel-less map:
