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]
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 Minister of Religious Affairs Yusuf Ida'is: "Israel divided [the Al-Aqsa Mosque between Jews and Muslims] regarding [prayer] time, when it admitted the herds of settlers in the morning hours and allowed them to hold Talmudic (i.e., Jewish) prayers, and after it began to place metal detectors [at the entrances] it wants to divide it [the Mosque] according to place. It wants to reach what is beyond that, as it has plans to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque and establish the alleged Temple in its place."

Excerpt of the full speech of Secretary-General of the PA Presidential Office Tayeb Abd Al-Rahim, given on behalf of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas at the opening of the Second National Forum for Scientists in Palestine

“You know that the Palestinian leadership yesterday [July 22, 2017] held a meeting… in order to discuss the current situation and formulate appropriate solutions to deal with the developments. As far as we’re concerned, Jerusalem is our political Qiblah (i.e., the direction for Muslim prayer, Mecca)… to which our compass will not cease to point, no matter what the sacrifices may be. There will be no Palestinian state whose capital is not Jerusalem, and Jerusalem must be purely Arab for its Muslims and Christians. We will not agree to Jewish rule or sovereignty over it... My brothers, [Israel] forcing sovereignty on Jerusalem is an old plan for these followers of the Talmud. I tell you that this is not about a division [between Jews and Muslims] according to [prayer] times or areas in Jerusalem (sic., on the Temple Mount), but rather it is a step on the way to establishing the alleged Temple, which they are talking about now in the most open manner and with the utmost recklessness and insolence.”

“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.”

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."

"The [PA] Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned the occupation's Judaization plan to build a new level under the Al-Buraq (i.e., the Western Wall of the Temple Mount) plaza at the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque…
This was stated following the exposé of the Hebrew weekly Jerusalem, according to which Jerusalem occupation Mayor [Nir Barkat], during a tour with members of the ruling Likud party, announced the municipality’s intention to build an additional level at the Al-Buraq plaza (apparently referring to plan for a tunnel under the Western Wall plaza to improve handicapped accessibility - the source noted here does not exist and these statements could not be found in Israeli newspapers -Ed.) and presented a draft of the aforementioned plan, as part of the occupation’s many plans to deepen the Judaization operations at the Al-Buraq plaza and tunnel…
The ministry again emphasized that occupied East Jerusalem is an inseparable part of the Palestinian territories that were occupied in 1967. It also emphasized that the excavations, Judaization operations, and the settlements and attempts to change the holy characteristics of the city [of Jerusalem] and its holy sites that are being carried out by the occupation authorities are invalid and illegal according to international law and the agreements that have been signed.

The Minister of Religious Affairs and the Mufti emphasized during their meeting yesterday [June 28, 2017] at the headquarters of the Ministry of Religious Affairs that the escalating and severe Israeli plans against Jerusalem, which are expressed in the continuation of their attempts to interfere in matters of the Jerusalem Noble Sanctuary (i.e., the Temple Mount), the increased excavations under the Al-Aqsa Mosque under the pretext of searching for alleged antiquities, and the increased settlement plans in Jerusalem, are an attempt to change the status quo at the Jerusalem Noble Sanctuary."

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.

The Israeli daily Haaretz has stated that the excavations do not reach beneath the mosque:

After checking, sources noted that the sermon was not published because Al-Habbash again emphasized his position on the Al-Buraq Wall by saying: 'The Al-Buraq Wall is part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and part of our people’s continuity and survival .
