(Scroll down for video) Palestinian television reporters have been busy on the streets awarding people, who are able to deny Israel’s existence, according to the media watchdog palwatch.org.

Throughout the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, the reporters have taken to the streets in Palestinian cities in the West Bank, asking random people several geographical trivia questions with a prize of $100 for each correct answer.
They asked Palestinians to name or locate a “city in Palestine” within the borders of Israel, such as Jaffa, Ashdod and Safed.

One question was: “Which city did the Palestinian writer Mustafa Dabbagh call ‘The city that fell from heaven?’” The answer: “Jaffa,” an area with the largest Arab population in the municipality of Tel Aviv.

Another trivia question that was to identify the lake in “northern Palestine,” which was drained by the “Israeli occupation.” The answer: “Hula Lake,” located in the Galilee, which was drained by Israel in the 1950s.

Another question was what country shares the longest border with Palestine, and how long that border is. The correct answer was Jordan, with a 586 kilometers or 364 mile border, which is the length of the territory between Eilat in southern Israel, all the way to the Golan Heights in the north.

Each correct answer was awarded $100 sponsored by the Bank of Palestine and two mobile phone networks, Jawwal and Wataniya.
