Rewriting history
Rewriting the history of the Land of Israel in order to deny Israel's right to exist is central to Palestinian Authority (PA) policy. Long before it started the PA terror campaign (the "Intifada," 2000-2005), the PA was fighting a history war – erasing Jewish history and replacing it with a fabricated Palestinian history. This rewriting has two central goals:
1- Erase the Jewish nation's 3,000 year history in the Land of Israel;
2- Invent ancient Palestinian, Muslim and Arab histories in the land.

The goal of this historical revision as a political strategy was first expressed publicly at a conference of Palestinian historians in 1998, when rewriting history was linked to the political goal of denying Israel's right to exist:
"Dr. Yussuf Alzamili [Chairman History Department, Khan Yunis Educational College] called on all universities and colleges to write the history of Palestine and to guard it, and not to enable the [foreign] implants and enemies to distort it or to legitimize the existence of Jews on this land... [History lecturer Abu Amar] clarified that there is no connection between the ancient generation of Jews and the new generation." [Al-Ayyam, Dec. 4, 1998].
 
Erasing Jewish history in the land of Israel is followed by the PA’s invention of ancient and modern histories that support its political ideology and claim to the land of Israel. The Holocaust and other aspects of Jewish history are alternately denied, downplayed or distorted. Another distortion is to hide from Palestinians that Jesus was a Jew who lived in the Land of Judea/Israel. PA leaders repeatedly define Jesus as a Palestinian who preached Islam, thus denying not only Jewish history, but also the history and legitimacy of Christianity.

Citing numerous examples, this section will document that these and other historical revisions are an integral part of Palestinian policy and are used to create political ideology.
Jewish history rewritten
Denial of 3,000 years of Jewish history in the land of Israel is the foundation of all PA political ideology. To accomplish this, the PA systematically distorts both ancient and modern history, ignoring both archeology and historical documentation, and replaces them with an odious fictitious history. The new history demonizes Jews, accusing them of having been evil and destructive throughout history, and thereby triggering non-Jews to justifiably hate, persecute and expel them. This rewriting forms the basis for the Palestinian Authority denial of Israel’s right to exist.

Denial the Jewish history and connection to the Land of Israel has been policy since the establishment of the Palestinian Authority.
This video is a recent example of a PA academic, denying the existence of thousands of Hebrew language coins, Hebrew texts and Hebrew Bullas (seals) carrying biblical names that that have been found in the Land of Israel.

Lecturer, Urban Planning, Bir-Zeit University, Dr. Jamal Amar
:
"There is a view that where it [the Dome of the Rock] stands was the Holy of Holies of the fictitious Temple – and by the way, that is merely an illusion. There is no remnant of it. It's a myth. A story of no value, like the Arabian Nights, and other legends… Only in Palestine… [after] 60 years of digging, and they've found nothing at all. Not a water jug, not a coin, not any earthen vessel, no bronze weapons, no piece of metal, absolutely nothing of this myth, because it's a myth and a lie. This digging has not left a single meter [unturned], but it has achieved absolutely nothing.” [PATV, June 23, 2009]

He explained that Ibrahim (i.e., the Biblical figure Abraham), the father of the prophets, was a monotheistic Muslim (sic., in Jewish traition Abraham was the first Jew and lived over 2,000 years before Islam began), which refutes the Zionists’ claims about the Ibrahimi Mosque (i.e., Cave of the Patriarchs) and the Al-Aqsa Mosque (i.e., the Temple Mount). Therefore, the Arab and Islamic nation must have an active presence in order to deter the occupation and its steps against the Palestinian people, its land, and its holy sites.”

2- Jerusalem's Temple/Jewish history denied
View All
Chronologically


Denial of the Jewish history in Jerusalem and the existence of the Jewish Temple is a central component PA political ideology. This denial started with Yasser Arafat and continues to be reiterated by academics, politicians and religious leaders. The PA systematically distorts the ancient history of Jerusalem, ignoring the vast historical documentation and thousands of archeological finds related to Jewish history that have been found in Jerusalem.

This music video, broadcast regularly on PA TV through 2008 and 2009, denies any historical connection between the Jewish people and Jerusalem, repeats the libel that Israel is planning to destroy the Al-Aqsa mosque and calls on Allah to protect the mosque. “Oh [Sons of] Zion, no matter how much you dig and no matter how much you destroy, your imaginary Temple will not come into being… [Allah protect Al-Aqsa] from every thief and every oppressor.”

Full text: “Al-Aqsa [Mosque] is ours, Oh Muslims, Al-Aqsa is ours, our Al-Aqsa screams and shouts, Al-Aqsa is ours. Oh Arabs and Muslims, no, no, Al-Aqsa is ours. Oh [Sons of] Zion, no matter how much you dig and no matter how much you destroy, your imaginary Temple will not come into being… My land, my Jerusalem, my blood and my honor will not be scorned. Al-Aqsa is ours, how you suffer! How you have bleed for years! How you scream! How you call out to the millions! What are you hoping for, what are you crying for? Saladin [Muslim conqueror of Jerusalem in 1187] ! Al-Aqsa is ours. Oh Allah, protect Al-Aqsa, Oh Allah, Al-Aqsa is ours, [protect Al-Aqsa] from every thief and every oppressor.” [PA TV (Fatah) Sept. 23, 2008 – Oct. 25, 2009]
PA Ministry of Foreign Affairs in official statement: Israeli PM wants to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque and build the alleged Temple 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 27, 2017
     “The [PA] Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates said that the battle of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Jerusalem is continuing and will only end with the disappearance of the occupation. The ministry explained in a statement yesterday [July 26, 2017] that… it appears that [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu thought that this battle would succeed thanks to American aid and Arab, Islamic, and international silence, but Jerusalem’s [Arab] masses and its national and religious leadership surprised him when they rose up to defend the Al-Aqsa Mosque (i.e., they launched violent riots) and prevented the success of his plans. The question that is still being asked is: ‘Will the matters stop at this point or will Netanyahu again repeat his attempts to divide the Al-Aqsa Mosque according to areas and times prior to its destruction and the building of the alleged Temple, or will he instead adopt a new and different tactic?’”

PA Ambassador repeats libel to Archbishop of Cyprus: Israel Judaizes Jerusalem, strives to take over Islamic and Christian holy sites” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 27, 2017
Headline: “Ambassador Hassan briefed the Archbishop of Cyprus regarding the occupation’s violations in Jerusalem”

“Ambassador of Palestine in Cyprus Walid Hasan briefed Archbishop of Cyprus Chrysostomos II regarding the situation in occupied Jerusalem and the Israeli violations regarding the Al-Aqsa Mosque (refers to security measures at the Temple Mount following a terror attack there on July 14, 2017, in which 2 Israelis were murdered; see note below. Israel decided to remove the measures on July 24, 2017 –Ed.).
During his meeting with the archbishop of Cyprus in the diocese palace for the end of his role as ambassador of the State of Palestine and head of the council of Arab ambassadors and the diplomatic corps, Ambassador Hassan said that the Israeli policy that is striving to Judaize the holy city [of Jerusalem], to take over the sites that are holy to Islam and Christianity, and to divide the Al-Aqsa Mosque according to areas and times threatens to cause the outbreak of a religious war.”

"Division according to areas and times"
