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]
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”

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."

PA Minister of Religious Affairs: Israel pretends to look for “alleged antiquities” but seeks to change the status quo 
Source: Al-Ayyam, June 29, 2017
Headline: "The [PA] Ministry of Religious Affairs and the Mufti warned against an escalation of the invasions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque"

"[PA] Minister of Religious Affairs Yusuf Ida'is and [PA] Mufti of Jerusalem and the Palestinian Territories Sheikh Muhammad Hussein warned against an increased escalation of the invasions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in the [Muslim fasting] month of Ramadan.
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:
"The diggers are painstaking to respect the dignity of the Temple Mount. Despite complaints from the Islamic Movement and Palestinian groups, not a single dig penetrates beneath the mount." [Haaretz, May 24, 2016] http://www.haaretz.com/st/c/prod/eng/2016/05/jeruz/01/

During the speech he gave at “The City of Jerusalem After 50 Years of Israeli Occupation: Future Horizons Conference”… he added: ‘The goal of the archaeological excavations is to pave the way for the establishment of the Third 'Temple' in place of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and to discover remains from the First or Second Temple and the continuation of the Al-Buraq Wall (i.e., the Western Wall). Their goal is also to attempt to prove the history of the Bible and the events and texts included in it, and thus to prove Israel's right to Palestine and that they have returned to here and are not new immigrants and colonialists.’"

     "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."
