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.

1- Jewish history in Land of Israel erased
View All
Chronologically


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]

Israeli demand to remove monument to terrorist is part of conflict between "false Zionist narrative" and Palestinian "narrative" and "identity"

Headline: “The Martyr Nazzal monument remains”

Excerpt of an op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, regular columnist for the official PA daily

        “At the height of the heated conflict between the [Palestinian] national narrative and the false Zionist narrative that contradicts history and geography, the extremist Zionist leadership of Israel is attempting to ‘dissolve’ the national narrative by persecuting its symbols…  [Israel] will not stop with the removal of the Martyr Khaled [Nazzal (i.e., terrorist, responsible for murder of 31)] monument, but rather will continue to extort us regarding our identity, our names, our birthdates, and the livelihood of our prisoners and their relatives. Every time that we retreat before it in the name of the superficial argument of flexibility and cutting corners, it will persecute us until we turn into slaves of its colonialist narrative’s will and logic.”

PA Ministry of Information falsely claims Israel has honored Baruch Goldstein, who murdered 29 praying Palestinians, by naming streets after him

Headline: “[PA] Ministry of Information: Netanyahu does not cease to incite and is doing nothing for peace”

“The [PA] Ministry of Information today (Tuesday) [June 20, 2017] said that it is monitoring Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s statements against [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas regarding what he called ‘ poisoning the minds of Palestinian youth,’ his demand to ‘educate for peace, not terror,’ and his attack on naming a square after Martyr (Shahid) Khaled Nazzal (i.e., terrorist, planned murder of 31 ) in Jenin.
The [PA] ministry added in its announcement that the government of Israel, and its leader Netanyahu, do not cease lethal incitement and to pay money for the defense of Israeli murderers, criminals, and terrorists.
It continued: ‘The incitement from the occupation prime minister is the recycling of an occupation discourse packed with fraud and fabrication, while ignoring that Israel is proud of murderers and criminals from among its army and its settlers who have committed crimes against humanity against the members of our people since 1948, have committed barbaric massacres, have completely erased hundreds of cities and villages, and are continuing on the same path throughout the Palestinian land.’

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]
Op-ed in official PA daily warns Israel of igniting “religious war” in Jerusalem: “Playing with fire will burn the fingers of the ones who ignited it” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 20, 2017
Op-ed by Bassem Barhoum, regular columnist for the official PA daily

“One should not play with fire [when dealing with] a cause the size of the cause of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Jerusalem. This warning is directed first and foremost to the Israeli occupation authority – this authority which in recent days is acting insanely (refers to Israel placing metal detectors at the entrances to the Temple Mount following a terror attack there on July 14, 2017, in which 2 Israelis were murdered; see note below –Ed.) and is racing against time in order to carry out its plans regarding the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Jerusalem and to try and impose its false narratives on the ground and convey them to the world. Israel thinks that the Arab nation’s weakness and its current preoccupation with its [own] crises will enable it [Israel] to carry out this plan, but playing with fire [when dealing with] a cause the size of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Jerusalem will… burn the fingers of the ones who ignited it, particularly if the situation reaches an explosion and turns into a religious war.”

Muhammad Ahmad Muhammad Jabarin, Muhammad Hamed Abd Al-Latif Jabarin, and Muhammad Ahmad Mufaddal Jabarin - Israeli Arab terrorists aged 29, 19, and 19, who shot from the Temple Mount at Israeli policemen, murdering 2 Israeli Druze border policemen - Haiel Stawi and Kamil Shnaan, on July 14, 2017. Two of the terrorists were shot and killed by other policemen during the attack. The third terrorist was shot and killed while trying to flee.
PA Minister of Religious Affairs claims Israel plans “religious war,” only Muslims have the right to Western Wall 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 17, 2017
Headline: "The occupation has placed the Al-Aqsa Mosque under siege with metal detectors, and the residents of Jerusalem refuse to pass through them"

"[PA] Minister of Religious Affairs Sheikh Yusuf Ida'is emphasized that the occupation's steps at the Al-Aqsa Mosque (refers to temporary closure and placement of metal detectors after a terror attack there on July 14, 2017; see note below –Ed.) are clear proof that the extremist right-wing government plans to ignite a religious war in the region that will have ominous consequences for the entire region…
Ida'is said that the Israeli government’s actions express a clear rejection of the entire international community and of the decisions it has made about Jerusalem, the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and the Al-Buraq Wall (i.e., the Western Wall of the Temple Mount), which have confirmed the Muslims' absolute right to them."

Muhammad Ahmad Muhammad Jabarin, Muhammad Hamed Abd Al-Latif Jabarin, and Muhammad Ahmad Mufaddal Jabarin - Israeli Arab terrorists aged 29, 19, and 19, who shot from the Temple Mount at Israeli policemen, murdering 2 Israeli Druze border policemen - Haiel Stawi and Kamil Shnaan, on July 14, 2017. Two of the terrorists were shot and killed by other policemen during the attack. The third terrorist was shot and killed while trying to flee.

The Al-Buraq Wall - Islam's Prophet Muhammad is said to have rode during his Night Journey from Mecca to "al aqsa mosque", i.e., "the farthest mosque" (Quran, Sura 17), and there tied his miraculous flying steed named Al-Buraq to a "stone" or a "rock." (Jami` at-Tirmidhi, Book 47, Hadith 3424). In the 1920's, Arab Mufti Haj Amin Al-Husseini decided to identify the Western Wall of the Temple in Jerusalem as that "rock" or "stone," and since then Muslims refer to the Western Wall as the "Al-Buraq Wall."

Fatah official: UNESCO resolution proves "falsification" of Israeli "narrative" in Jerusalem, confirms Palestinian right to "resist" 
Source: Amad, independent Palestinian news website, July 5, 2017
Headline: "Alayan: The UNESCO resolution regarding Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque demands Arab action"
      "Prominent Fatah leader in occupied Jerusalem Raafat Alayan welcomed the renewed voting on [another] UNESCO (UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) resolution regarding the illegality and non-sovereignty of the Israeli occupation in Jerusalem, the Old City [of Jerusalem], and the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, as well as the condemnation of the excavations that the occupation is carrying out under the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Old City. He added that this resolution, with all of its details, is very important and proves the falsification that Israel has tried to create with its narrative, and [Israel's] attempt to change the status quo in Jerusalem throughout the years of its occupation of the holy city. Alayan added that this international resolution confirms the right of the Palestinian people to resist the Israeli occupation, which violates all of the international resolutions and challenges the world with its actions against our Palestinian people that suffers from the torments of the occupation and its terror."
