Jewish history rewritten
Jewish history in Land of Israel erased
Op-ed in PA daily: Jews were never present in Israel, such claims are nothing more than “fairy tales” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Feb. 27, 2014
Op-ed by Adli Sadeq, PLO Ambassador to India and regular columnist for official PA daily
     “These days, the occupiers have reached the height of their rampage in their parliament, which is populated by a handful of crazy people reinforced by fairy tales and bundles of dreams, not a single letter of which has been proven true by a single stone of Jerusalem…
Each day, they come out with a new refrain that not [even] the first Zionists before them could have imagined, and pretend that their alleged Temple stood exactly at the site of the Al-Aqsa Mosque…
Recognizing the ‘Jewishness of the State’ is an implicit confirmation that the refugees have no rights, that we stole ourselves a homeland and have not been [living] on our ancestors’ land for thousands of years. If the Jews were indeed present [here] for a short period in the history of our land, that presence was not along the coast, nor in the north or south of Palestine. In other words, the Jews never passed through or were present in the territories which the peace process firmly defines as being outside the negotiations and [designates] as Israeli territory.”
Official PA daily: Palestinian narrative is “the only narrative consistent with historic ‎Palestine,” Jewish narrative is “a fabrication”‎ 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 12, 2014
Op-ed by Adel Abd Al-Rahman, regular ‎columnist for Al-Hayat Al-Jadida
     ‎“Historic Palestine is the land of the ‎Palestinian Arab nation and bears its ‎narrative, culture, and identity. No one, ‎whatever his power, can sever the bond of ‎affinity, proximity and history between the ‎Palestinians and the land of their ‎forefathers. The only narrative consistent ‎with historic Palestine is the Palestinian ‎narrative, and any other narrative is ‎nothing more than a fabrication meant to ‎justify a colonial occupation that expels ‎‎[the original inhabitants] and settles ‎‎[others in their place]. Therefore, all the ‎claims of the leaders of the Zionist ‎movement, from Herzl to Netanyahu and ‎everyone in between, are false, and have ‎no connection to the truth… ‎
Proponents of the Zionist movement are ‎pumping up these lies through their ‎internationally influential media outlets, ‎which are supported in an unprecedented ‎way by the imperialist West, in order to ‎disseminate them and to brainwash the ‎Jews, who have been deceived, to realize ‎‎[their] colonial objectives in the region. ‎This [is being done] because the State of ‎Israel (Note: the Palestinian media ‎generally avoids using this term) was a ‎front line and support base for the ‎capitalist powers… and its purpose was ‎the partitioning of the Arab region and the ‎theft of its resources, to prevent the ‎awakening of the Arab nation and to serve ‎as a way out of the distress of the Jewish ‎question within the given time frame.‎"

PA daily op-ed: Israelis have no right to land, which God gave to Palestinians 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 2, 2014
From op-ed by Imtiaz Diab:
     "Regarding those [Israelis] who came boasting the metal of their gleaming rifles, while fleeing a fate of their bodies being turned to white dust (i.e., the Jews who fled the Holocaust), who shared our bread and salt with us, who betrayed our courtesy and claimed their God had promised our land to them – they are only transient in their journey in the Diaspora, [a journey] which has protected them from dissolving into the nations that hated them everywhere, except for us, we who gave them shelter in our homes.
We know well that they… will leave our holy olive tree one day, [the olive tree] which they uprooted from the soil they claim to own!
They have never understood that God gave this land to those who were born on it, those who have lived on it, those whose fathers were buried in it, and to those who were compelled to migrate by force by those who came and claimed the land was desolate. This is the land of those who have loved it, breathed its air, embraced its trees and wept over any damage done to its soil…"

Official PA daily: Jews have "nothing to do with... historic Palestine" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Dec. 25, 2013
Op-ed by Adel Abd Al-Rahman, regular columnist for Al-Hayat Al-Jadida
     “How, and on what grounds, is the Jew, who has nothing to do with the Palestinian Arab land (historic Palestine) [parenthesis in source], entitled to return to it, while the Palestinian son of the Palestinian is not entitled [to return]?”
Official PA daily: "The Israeli apartheid state" is based on "a false Zionist narrative‎" and "colonialist Zionism‎" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Dec. 21, 2013
By columnist for official PA daily Adel Abd ‎Al-Rahman
     ‎“European Union representatives ‎hastened to send letters to the ‎representatives of Palestine and Israel, ‎containing ‘carrot and stick’ measures for ‎each of the parties. Regarding the former ‎‎(the ‘carrot’ measures), the European ‎Union took care to emphasize that it would ‎provide financial and economic support on ‎various levels if the two-state solution ‎within the June 4, 1967 borders is reached. ‎At the ‘stick’ level, it threatened to blame ‎Israel for the failure of the negotiations due ‎to the continuation of the settlement ‎‎[project]. The letter to the Palestinians also ‎included a threat in the event they ‘did not ‎agree’ to make concessions that would ‎bring about a leap in the peace process! ...‎
What is being demanded of the ‎Palestinians? Is there any obligation ‎towards the Israeli apartheid state that they ‎have not met since the signing of the Oslo ‎Accords? Are the Palestinians being asked ‎to cede the right to return to their homes, ‎which was promised to them by ‎international law? Are they being asked to ‎cede their historical narrative in favor of a ‎false Zionist narrative and recognize the ‎‎‘Jewish [character]’ of the Israeli state, ‎thereby placing their own necks and that of ‎their people under the guillotine of ‎colonialist Zionism?”‎
Official PA daily denies ancient Jewish connection to Israel while falsely claiming ancient Palestinian heritage 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Dec. 17, 2013
Op-ed by Dr. As’ad ‎ Abd Al-Rahman, ‎regular columnist for Al-Hayat Al-Jadida
     ‎“The debate surrounding the identity of ‎the ‘State of Israel’ and the identity of its ‎citizens since its establishment in 1948 is ‎still ongoing, and ‘Israel’ may well be the ‎only [country] in the world that refuses to ‎grant its name as a national identity to its ‎citizens.‎
The real reasons for the disagreement in ‎Israel about a citizenship that would ‎define the national identity of the state ‎and its citizens, from among the national ‎identities offered – Israeli, Jewish and ‎Hebrew – arise from huge historical, legal ‎and religious obstacles, which prevent ‎Israeli identity from being used as the ‎national identity of the Zionist state and its ‎citizens… ‎
Genetic ‎analysis, scientifically revealed that the ‎European Ashkenazi Jews, who adopted ‎the Jewish religion in the 7th century CE, ‎are from the Aryan race, and have no ‎connection to Semites...‎
‎The Oriental Talmud of the Oriental Jews ‎who converted the Ashkenazim from their ‎pagan religion to Judaism, is the ‎‎‘Palestinian Talmud, [or] Jerusalem ‎Talmud.’ ‎
This Talmud was written thousands of ‎years ago, ‘in the ancient Palestinian ‎Jewish Aramaic language,’ meaning the ‎language of the Canaanite Palestinians. ‎It’s enough for us to know that the name ‎of the Israeli newspaper, The Jerusalem ‎Post, was, from its founding in 1932 until ‎the establishment of the Zionist state in ‎‎1948, The Palestine Post.’”‎

In a rare instance, the PA daily acknowledges Jewish history in the land of Israel:
     “In the [Russian] museum [in Jericho] there is an exhibition of Byzantine copper coins from the fifth and sixth century CE, as well as ceramic lamps from the [period of the] second half of the fifth century to the first half of the seventh century that bear Christian, Jewish, and Islamic symbols.”
Balfour Declaration was "A promise [made] by those who had no ownership to those who had no right" 
Source: Zayzafuna magazine, Nov. 1, 2013
Zayzafuna: November 2013 marked the anniversary of the Balfour Declaration.
Cover of the Zayzafuna magazine:
“November 2, 1917
The Balfour Promise (Declaration)
A promise [made] by those who had no ownership, to those who had no right (i.e., Jews)”

Note: The Balfour Declaration of Nov. 2, 1917 was a letter from British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour to Baron Rothschild stating that “His Majesty's government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people,” and is seen as the basis for later international commitments to establish the State of Israel.)
PA daily acknowledges possible Jewish connection to ancient Jerusalem well 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 20, 2013
     “Near the Monastery of Mar Elias, on the outskirts of Jerusalem, roughly half way between it and Bethlehem, one can find the well of Kadismo that was an important landmark on the historical Jerusalem-Hebron-Bethlehem road before [that road] suffered a painful blow with the occupation of what was left of Palestine in 1967. Researchers tell us that the name of the well is a distortion of the Greek name kathisma, meaning ‘seat’ or ‘place of rest’, while others believe it comes from the Hebrew word kodashim, meaning ‘what is sanctified.’ Since the fourth century, when the Roman Empire adopted Christianity, it has been known as ‘the Virgin’s well.’”

Israelis misunderstood where the “promised land” is – it’s in Yemen 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Oct. 1, 2013
PA TV program In a Prisoner’s Home:
Host Abir Al-Shamali: “How can we work together to revive our legacy in the younger generations’ memories? Because, as you know, the Israelis claim that this is the promised land - the holy land (Quds), even though, it should be known, that if they had read our people’s history, a more educated person would have looked for the [place named] Quds, Kaddesh (holy), which is located in Yemen, which means, the promised land that the Israelis demand is in Yemen and in the mountains of Yemen.”
Fatah representative in the Palestinian National Council Abu Dahouk: “In the beginning of the occupation the Zionists acted based on [the belief] that the old would die and the young would forget. We have children who are three years old and they say ‘I’m a Palestinian.’”

Israel is “inventing history and names, trying to prove its historic existence” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 4, 2013
Op-ed by Imtiyaz Diab:
Headline: “The Palestine Sunbird”
     [The writer reports that an Israeli commission has sent requests to international organizations to change the name of a bird now called the “Palestine Sunbird” and begin calling it the ”Orange Sunbird”.]
“’Orange Sunbird’! That’s what [Israel] wants to call it! It wants to kidnap [the bird] from us, and it has set up a special commission to promote the name change. This commission has sent letters to all international unions and organizations that deal with nature, in order to pressure them into changing the name…
Does defending the Palestine Sunbird and declaring it a national symbol not necessitate our preparing legal dossiers and negotiation files needed to make this issue a red line in negotiations for a permanent settlement between us and them? Yes it does, because Israel will not compromise when it comes to inventing history and names, trying to prove its historic existence. This is very different from the Palestinians and the Arabs who have believed that strong evidence is sufficient to protect their existence.”
Israelis are "tyrants who stole the land of Palestine‎" and "hijacked the heavenly Jewish religion‎" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, June 21, 2013
     “In Bethlehem’s Manger Square yesterday, ‎the veil was lifted from the largest oil mural ‎in the world, during a ceremony under the ‎auspices of President Mahmoud Abbas. ‎The mural was painted by Dr. Jamal ‎Badwan ‎... who called it ‘Interreligious ‎Tolerance and Peace.’ ‎…‎
Badwan emphasized that Jerusalem, ‎which appears at the center of the painting, ‎symbolizes the resolve of our people and ‎the capital of Palestine – all of Palestine, ‎including its orchards, Acre and its walls, ‎Jaffa and its oranges, and Bethlehem and ‎its [Church of the] Nativity.‎
‎He... noted that resistance is not ‎‎[carried out] with rifles alone, but also ‎through art.‎..
Bethlehem District Governor Abd Al-Fattah ‎Hamayel congratulated ‘the artist, Dr. ‎Jamal Badwan, on this political artwork that ‎reflects the [Palestinian] heritage.’ ‎
Hamayel said: ‘When you see the painting, ‎some may ask, ‘Where is the synagogue?’ I ‎say explicitly that Palestine is known for its ‎cultural heritage, for brotherhood, and for ‎exemplary coexistence among religions. ‎But these tyrants who stole the land of ‎Palestine, also stole the heavenly Jewish ‎religion, harnessing it in opposition to love ‎and co-existence. ‎
We suffer from the gang that hijacked the ‎heavenly Jewish religion. But Palestine ‎will remain a symbol and an ideal ‎greenhouse [in which to cultivate] ‎brotherhood.’”‎

“Not a single remnant connects” Jews in Israel “to the land” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, June 10, 2013
Article by Jihad Al-Khazen, originally published in the London paper Al-Hayat. It was republished in the op-ed section of Al-Hayat Al-Jadida:
     “The Canadian government is Israel’s ally, meaning it is the Arabs’ and the Muslims’ enemy – even if they deny it – since it supports the fascist, racist state that occupies Palestinian lands, kills, expels, and destroys…
I am amazed that the Canadian nation doesn’t lift a finger. Sarcasm is all I can come up with, and so I say to myself that the cold must prevent the Canadian citizen from thinking, and that allows his government to do as it pleases…
What appears above is my own personal opinion about Canada, its policies and its government.
I call on all Arab states, and the Islamic states along with them, to follow in the footsteps of Saudi Arabia and begin a gradual boycott of Canada.
But what is important about a boycott of Canada is that the Canadian citizen will [be able to] cover up with a blanket providing a little warmth, allowing him to ponder the situation where his government incites 1.5 billion Muslims from all over the world against his country…, just to establish relations with one occupation state of six million, when in all of Palestine there is not a single remnant that connects [those six million] to the land.”

Mayor of Ramallah Musa Hadid: "In the Church of the Holy Sepulchre there's the tomb of Jesus.

It's obvious to the whole world that we, the sons of the Palestinian nation who adhere to Christianity, are the Palestinian nation's original sons. We have been the inhabitants of this land for thousands of years. Those who came to us from European countries are new invaders in this region."
