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]

Official PA TV News, on Israeli archaeologists casting doubt on the authenticity of the newly found papyrus from 700 BCE on which is written "Jerusalem" in ancient Hebrew script
Official PA TV reporter: "The Israeli media is attempting to use a document which is said to be a certificate on which is written in the ancient Hebrew script 'Jerusalem,' and which was found four years ago. According to the story, Israel attempts to fabricate lies and to find proof of them or to write what it wants about them (i.e., the finds) in order to impose the Israeli plan that aspires to build the alleged Temple in place of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Here begins the story, in the middle of the West Bank desert (i.e., Judean Desert) a piece of papyrus form the 7th century BCE is found, and according to the claims it is a certificate for the transfer of a certain type of wine that was sent by the king from the town of Na’arata in the Jordan Valley, north of Jericho... The thief who claims that Israel has a history through his pursuit of antiquities thieves – is looking for the first market to display what he stole. Thus also [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu, who is attempting to stand in the path of UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) after the slap on the cheek he received last week. Against the background of events that have shaken the Israeli archaeologists regarding the level of reliability due to the precedents of forgery of documents with ancient tools and years of excavations, one of the Israeli archaeologists comes out, Israel Finkelstein [from Tel Aviv University], who denies the presence of any connection of the Jews to Jerusalem, or even any archaeological evidence pointing to the location where the Temple was located (sic., see note)."

Text on cartoon: “UNESCO: There is no religious connection between the Jews and the Al-Aqsa Mosque”

UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) passed a resolution in Paris on “Occupied Palestine” on Oct. 13, 2016, with 24 countries voting in favor, 6 against, and 24 abstentions. The resolution was later approved by UNESCO's World Heritage Committee on Oct. 26, 2016, in a secret ballot in which ten countries voted in favor of the resolution, two opposed, eight abstained, and one country, Jamaica, was absent.
In the resolution UNESCO refers to the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism, only as “Al-Aqsa Mosque/Al-Haram Al-Sharif,” and presents it only as a “Muslim holy site.” The resolution condemns “escalating Israeli aggressions” and Israeli “violations” at the site, and calls on Israel “to respect the integrity, authenticity and cultural heritage of Al-Aq?a Mosque/Al-?aram Al-Sharif… as a Muslim holy site of worship.” The resolution likewise refers to the Western Wall Plaza as the “Al-Buraq Plaza ‘Western Wall Plaza,’” adding quotation marks to the Jewish name for the site.
The resolution was submitted by Algeria, Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, and Sudan.

The council condemned the personal participation of the occupation’s [Israeli] Prime Minister [Benjamin Netanyahu] in the excavation activities that are held under the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque (sic., see note below), and the decision of the occupation government’s [Israel] Antiquities Authority that calls on every Jewish youth before [army] enlistment to take part in excavations under the Al-Aqsa Mosque as they are a national obligation (sic., see note below). This is in addition to the participation of settler associations in searches for remnants of the alleged Temple in an attempt to prove any sort of presence of theirs in Jerusalem and the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque. Likewise, the council clarified that these excavations herald [the fact] that the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque and the buildings adjacent to it are about to collapse at any moment, Heaven forbid...

Israeli affairs expert Fayez Abbas: "Yesterday [Oct. 26, 2016] they published something interesting, that they found among antiquities thieves in the Hebron area a papyrus parchment on which is written in ancient Hebrew script 'Yerushalma' (i.e., Jerusalem), in other words Al-Quds (i.e., Jerusalem).

Host: "Even the photographers related to this matter and they are laughing at Netanyahu's lie."
Fayez Abbas: "What is this talk? And it was 700 BCE, what is this talk?"
Host: "And the amazing coincidence in timing."
Fayez Abbas: "It is a message to UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization)! He [Netanyahu] is free [to do that], but he is a liar. There is no disagreement on that. There is no disagreement between me and you that he is a liar."

PA Grand Mufti: Israel invades and excavates tunnels under Al-Aqsa in "search for a false and alleged history"

     “[PA] Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and the Palestinian Territories and preacher at the Al-Aqsa Mosque Sheikh Muhammad Hussein… condemned the dangerous and ongoing escalation by the occupation authorities and its herds of settlers against the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, something which is expressed in easing the settlers’ invasions of it and the excavation of tunnels under it in a search for a false and alleged history. He explained that the latest UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) resolution emphasizes that the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque [plaza] is Islamic and belongs only to the Muslims.”

The PA and its leaders consider all of the Temple Mount an integral part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Therefore, they view any presence of Jews on the mount as an “invasion.” It should be noted that Jews who visit the Temple Mount only enter some sections of the open areas and do not enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque or the Dome of the Rock.
