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]

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]

Head of Palestinian Football Association accuses Israel of “politicizing” sport, while calling on Argentina to avoid match against Israel in “occupied Jerusalem”  
Source: WAFA, official PA news agency, May 28, 2018
    “Chairman of the [PLO] Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs and the Palestinian Football Association Jibril Rajoub called on Argentina to avoid participating in the friendly football match [with Israel] that is expected to take place on June 9 [2018] in occupied Jerusalem, as part of the Argentinian national team’s preparations for the World Cup. Rajoub expressed his opposition and condemnation of the Israeli occupation government’s decision to hold the match. He emphasized that Israel is politicizing the sport… This was said in an official protest letter that Rajoub sent to the Argentine Football Association, the South American Football Confederation [CONMEBOL], and also to FIFA and UEFA – both of which Israel belongs to, to the Union of Arab Football Associations, and the Islamic Solidarity Sports Federation… Rajoub expressed deep concern over the match being held in occupied Jerusalem, which constitutes clear submission ‘to the heavy political pressures that the government of Israel and its ministers have exerted, as Israeli Minister of Culture and Sports Miri Regev openly boasted.’ He added: ‘Israel, the occupying power, has politicized the sport in a way that contradicts the moral standards and international values that determine the principles of the sport.’”

Abbas’ advisor on religious affairs calls US Ambassador David Friedman a “terrorist settler,” says he is “disparaging” Islam 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 24, 2018
“Supreme Shari’ah Judge of Palestine and [PA] President [Mahmoud Abbas’] advisor on Religious and Islamic Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash called on the Arab and Islamic governments, organizations, and peoples to respond to US Ambassador to the occupation state [Israel] David Friedman’s disparaging of the Islamic faith.
Al-Habbash said in a statement that Friedman’s appearance next to a large picture of the Jerusalem sanctuary (i.e., the Temple Mount), where the Dome of the Rock is removed from it and a picture of the alleged Temple is inserted in its place, is a provocative step that constitutes a racist insinuation and criminal incitement for the destruction of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque (Friedman has clarified he was unaware of the image that was presented to him and called it unacceptable; see note below –Ed.)…
He [Al-Habbash] said: ‘The removal of the sites that are holy to Islam in Jerusalem is a racist goal of the extremists and the extreme right-wing that rules in the occupation state. The awaited goal of these criminals, and among them settler terrorist David Friedman, is to make the Palestinians disappear from Jerusalem and cause them to migrate from it’…
Al-Habbash said: ‘We expect a historic Arab and Islamic response to this racist provocation by the American ambassador. We must not agree to less than an explicit apology from him personally and from the American administration, his final return [to the US], the cancelation of the American decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, and the closing of the American settlement that was inaugurated in Jerusalem and falsely called an ‘embassy.’”
