The Permanent Observer Mission of Palestine to the United Nations's logo includes more than just the pre-1967 territories demanded by the PA as a basis for a two-state solution, Weekly Standard blogger Anne Bayefsky reported on Wednesday.

The logo, displayed prominently on the UN mission's website and reportedly printed on its official reports, displays a map that shows Israel, the West Bank and Gaza Strip as a single entity. "Absent from the logo is any hint that Palestine consists of anything other than Arab territory," Bayfsky wrote.

It was not clear how long the logo had been displayed on the PA mission's website.
