Rewriting history
Jewish history rewritten
Jerusalem's Temple/Jewish history denied
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]

He noted that the prisoners’ dignity obligates us to support them in all fields and at all levels, and said: ‘They are the spearhead of this honorable people, which is carrying out Ribat (i.e., religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) in the land of [Muhammad’s] Night Journey’…
In the Friday sermon the grand mufti also reviewed the aggression and violations against the Al-Aqsa Mosque, which are being committed before the eyes and ears of the world. He condemned the aggression of the extremist Jewish organizations towards the Al-Aqsa Mosque, under the direct auspices of the occupation government. He also emphasized that [the occupation government] will not change by one iota the fact that the Al-Aqsa Mosque belongs only to the Muslims.”

The minister of religious affairs explained that those who are called ‘the alleged Temple organizations’ have strengthened their calls to invade the Al-Aqsa Mosque plazas (i.e., the Temple Mount) during the Hebrew Passover holiday and sacrifice Passover sacrifices there…
He said that the steps that the occupation government is carrying out have begun to move to the most dangerous stage for the future of the holy city [of Jerusalem] by giving a green light to the settlers and extremist Jews to enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque, to do as they will in its holy plazas and to carry out shameful acts that desecrate the sanctity of the site (See note below –Ed.)…
Ida’is explained that in the shadow of the Arab and Islamic silence and international conspiracy, the Zionist occupation authorities are continuing their plans to erode occupied Jerusalem and take all of the Islamic characteristics from it while using all of the arbitrary means to Judaize the city and expel the original [Arab] Jerusalem residents from it: taking control of the lands and establishing settlements on them, the continuation of the excavations under our blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque… and the many attempts to steal our heritage and culture – and this is not the first time: a Jewish ‘archaeologist’ attempted to steal a stone from the ancient Al-Aqsa Mosque.”

     “Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Movement Revolutionary Council Dr. Fayez Abu Aita said… at a central rally organized by the national and Islamic forces in the northern Gaza Strip for Land Day… that transferring the American embassy to Jerusalem is recognition of Israel.

Jerusalem is Arab and Islamic and will remain on the list of priorities of the Arab-Israeli conflict, and there will be no Palestinian state without it.’”

Land Day – an annual commemoration of the general strike and demonstrations organized by Israeli Arab residents of the Galilee on March 30, 1976 to protest the Israeli government's decision to expropriate land in the Galilee for security and settlement purposes, which it later implemented. During the protests, demonstrators burnt tires, blocked roads, and threw rocks and firebombs. Six demonstrators were shot and killed by the Israeli army and police. Israeli Arabs and Palestinians consider Land Day a national day.

History does not recall that any city has been subjected to attempts to erase and change its characteristics, identity, and history through forgery, change, nonsense, and false claims in the way that the city of Jerusalem is subject to them. In addition, settlers are brought to the city, and the city is flooded with settlements both within the city and outside it.

PA government: Israel is working to "Judaize" Jerusalem and "shake the foundations of the Al-Aqsa Mosque" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Mar. 8, 2017
     "During its weekly meeting, which was held yesterday in Ramallah, led by [PA] Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah… the [PA] government emphasized that the decision of the Israeli magistrate court in occupied Jerusalem - according to which the Al-Aqsa Mosque is a holy site for Jews and they have a right to pray there - is an invalid decision. This decision was issued by the occupation's court in an attempt to provide a legal character to the justification of the extremists’ attacks and the daily invasions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and to render valid the occupation’s crimes against Jerusalem and the sites holy to Islam and Christianity...
In addition, this is also about the exposure of the falsehood of the Israeli narrative, with which the occupation has been misleading global public opinion and the international community for many decades, and which it has attempted to impose with military force from the first day of the occupation of the holy city. Today, it attempts this through a decision by the occupation's court... to escalate it as part of its policy to Judaize the holy city - the same policy whose latest expression was carrying out construction work in the area of the Umayyad palaces adjacent to the Al-Aqsa Mosque. This was not in an attempt to prove any right of the Jews there, as they have already failed to do so despite the excavations that have taken place since the occupation of Jerusalem in 1967, but rather only to shake the foundations of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and cause cracks in its walls."

On Jan. 29, 2017, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres was interviewed by Benny Avni of the Voice of Israel radio station. In the interview Guterres discussed the rise in Antisemitism in both Europe and the US, saying that it is a "dangerous trend" and that what particularly worries him about it is that it is "directly impacting Jewish communities," and that "people are attacked," He also noted that the Antisemitism against Jewish communities doesn’t seem to be related to the State of Israel.
Regarding the discrimination against Israel in the UN, Guterres said: "Israel needs to be considered as a state as the same as all the others with exactly the same rights and obligations and without any form of discrimination."
Addressing the issue of Jerusalem and the Jewish Temple that stood on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, Guterres stated that: "It is clear to me that the Temple of Jerusalem was destroyed by the Romans, was a Jewish temple. As it is clear for me today that Jerusalem is today a holy city for three religions. These are the facts that nobody can deny."

On Jan. 25, 2017, the Israeli Ministry of Transportation announced a proposal to extend the Tel Aviv-Jerusalem high-speed train line to include a stop in the Old City of Jerusalem. It announced that planning and feasibility studies have been ordered for the project.

The PA TV host criticizes Al-Ayyam’s use of the term “the Wailing Wall,” which is the Jewish/Israeli term, as opposed to “the Al-Buraq Wall,” which is the Muslim/Palestinian term.

In 2012, Palestinian Media Watch documented that the PA Ministry of Information had issued a book instructing Palestinians which words to use to instead of "the Israeli and American dissemination of poisoned terms." The book includes Palestinian expressions that should be used to replace Israeli terminology related to history and tradition. One of the terms the ministry had decided to avoid was “
