Rewriting history
Jewish history rewritten
Jewish history in Land of Israel erased
Palestinians are Canaanites and pre-date Jewish presence in Israel 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, May 13, 2014
Official PA TV broadcast the documentary Return to Al- Abbasiyya, about the village of Al-Abbasiyya, which was destroyed in 1948; a neighborhood of the Israeli town of Yehud was constructed on its ruins.
The film’s narrator speaks with an elderly Yemenite Jew from Yehud.
Film narrator: “These Mamluk graves, from the Mamluk period – when they came to Palestine, they came to the Canaanites. We are here, the Canaanite Arabs, we’ve been on the land of Palestine for thousands of years. You’re the sons of Isaac. Who are we the sons of?”
Yemenite Jew: “Ishmael.”
Film narrator: “Ishmael. We are…”
Yemenite Jew: “Brothers.”
Film narrator: “But you weren’t here in the land. You came here, then left again, isn’t that so? You passed through, and didn’t settle here. The people of the land are the Canaanites, right?”
Yemenite Jew: “Right, before…”
Film narrator: “The Arab tribes lived here. Where did you live, in Yemen?”
Yemenite Jew: “Yes.”
Film narrator [ironically]: “You’re great.”
Yemenite Jew: “What did they tell us in Yemen? ‘Go to your country, to Palestine.’”
Fatah official: “[The people of the] Arab nation are the original inhabitants of the land”  
Source: Awdah TV YouTube channel, May 12, 2014
The independent Palestinian TV channel Awdah hosted Fatah Central Committee member and Commissioner for Overseas Fatah Branch Affairs Dr. Jamal Muhaisen on its program The Political Situation:
Fatah Central Committee member and Commissioner for Overseas Fatah Branch Affairs Dr. Jamal Muhaisen: “I say that a democratic [state] is incompatible with a Jewish [state] or a nation [state].The current Israeli mindset, in my opinion, takes us back to the days of Hitler, when he distinguished between the German nation and the other nations of the world. Today, the Israeli side is also trying to distinguish between the Jews as a nation – I’m not talking about the Jews as a religion – and the Arab nation, who are the original inhabitants of the land.”

PA TV: Israel attempts "to prove historical fables and promists that exist in their extremist minds alone, about... a people who never owned this land"

Official PA TV News reported on Holocaust Memorial Day
PA TV newsreader: “Even as Israel commemorates the day known as Jewish Holocaust Day, it perpetrates a new Holocaust each day against our people; it persecutes them, discriminates and treats them with racism.”
[Photographs of Hitler and images from the period of the foundation of Israel (Ben Gurion, war images, etc.) appear in the background during the report]:
PA TV narrator: “Even as the Israelis commemorate Holocaust Day – which all human conventions denounce and condemn because it is contrary to the nature of all mankind – our people remember the holocausts and massacres committed by the descendants of the survivors of the Holocaust [perpetrated by] Nazi Germany. Israel has not learned the lesson from what happened to them and to other human beings. To the contrary, during its wars it carried out executions, murdered civilians, bombarded buildings with missiles, burned Arab villages in 1948 and set up detention camps. Between massacres, Tel Aviv established its control and occupation of this land, to compensate for its losses and for the suffering caused by Hitler’s Germany and the rest of the world, where they had been persecuted and discriminated against. The strange thing is that the occupation state copied these racist acts, and gave our people, the owners of this land, a taste of them, in order to prove historical fables and promises that exist in their extremist minds alone, about a land without a people for a people who never owned this land… Decades later, the situation has not changed, and Tel Aviv is still making our people taste tragedy – by oppressing the Palestinian people and undermining its awareness of its tragedy, in which Tel Aviv plays the part of the executioner."

PA spokesman: Israel creates "visual pollution" in "creating a history of Israel and the Jews in Jerusalem which is nonexistent"

Official PA TV News reported on the visit of Adnan Al-Damiri, official spokesman of the PA Security Forces and Commissioner General of the political leadership, to Jerusalem.
Adnan Al-Damiri, official spokesman of the PA Security Forces and Commissioner General of the political leadership: “In addition to the environmental pollution caused by the waste that the settlements and their criminals produce and dump on the Palestinians, the occupation is now trying to create visual pollution for the world, by polluting Jerusalem’s landscape through the new inventions it is trying to devise, with the aim of creating a history of Israel and the Jews in Jerusalem which is nonexistent, despite all the excavations.”
Official PA daily: Jewish claim to Israel as a homeland is "based on the fabricated biblical and Talmudic tales" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Apr. 14, 2014
Op-ed by Dr. As'ad Abd Al-Rahman, regular columnist for Al-Hayat Al-Jadida:
     "The leaders of the Zionist state, from their first prime minister, David Ben Gurion, to the present day, from the right to the left, agree that historical Palestine is 'Israel's homeland'... This [claim is] based on the fabricated biblical and Talmudic tales. All this points to an Israeli fortress mentality, which is faithful to the Zionist heritage, which is based on racism, arrogance and the lie of 'the chosen people,' and based on the 'Masada complex' - a fear of recurrence of the 7 years of a Roman army siege which forced the Jewish men in the fortress to make a strange decision that no reasonable person throughout history has ever understood: to kill their women, children and elders and then commit suicide...
Israel and peace are opposites. This [Israel] is a state that surrounds itself with physical and psychological concrete walls that are ingrained in the Jewish mentality, which is based on rejection and fear of the other, and which sees the solution in expanding the construction of the fortress walls. Even the racist separation fence, in addition to being a kind of 'apartheid', recalls the tradition of the Jewish ghetto in Europe. Therefore, one can say that Israel's recourse to building the fence stems from reasons connected to the internal psychological structure of the Israeli character, which was formed in the shadow of the Jewish ghetto worldview."

PA daily: Israel is an "apartheid state" and "breeding ground for... corruption and mafia" because its leaders know Zionism is "based on lies" and "lack of belief... in the continued existence of their state" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Apr. 3, 2014
Op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, regular columnist for Al-Hayat Al-Jadida
     “[Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud] Olmert’s conviction on [charges of] corruption is a crushing blow to his political history, and can be considered the defining moment in the closing chapter of his political time... which will make it difficult for him to return to politics – though anything is possible and permissible in the apartheid state, given its settler character.
The State of Israel, according to the testimony of Judge Rosen (the judge in the Olmert case) and others, is a breeding ground for all forms and manifestations of corruption and mafia, and the political and military classes may well be playing a central role in furthering these manifestations, which threaten the unity of Israeli society. This phenomenon has both subjective and objective causes [including]: 1. The lack of belief among these leaders in the continued existence of their state, given their understanding that it is an unnatural state and that the dangers surrounding it render the chances of its continued [existence] elusive. 2. The ideological, political, moral and ethical foundations of the Israeli elites are weak; they understand that the Israeli Zionist narrative is based on lies and falsifications of truth, history and reality. 3. The nature of [Israel’s] relationship with the capitalist West – especially the United States, which lavishes on Israel the highest financial and economic aid, and sets the mood and creates a fertile environment for acts of theft and robbery among the ranks of Israeli leaders. 4. The nature of the relationship between the heads of global financial capital and the Zionist movement, in which the Jewish Zionist families play a pivotal role in reinforcing corruption and bribery, [can be seen] in the same context.”

     “Today is the 38th anniversary of Land Day, at a time when the struggle between the [Palestinian] national project and the Zionist colonialist project is intensifying…
The Israeli leadership insists on bending the truth and imposing its false narrative by extracting recognition of the Israeli state’s ‘Jewish identity’ from the Palestinian people and leadership. This means the destruction and effacement of the foundations of the Palestinian narrative.”

Note: 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. Israeli Arabs and Palestinians consider it a national day.
Fatah official: Israel is a “colonialist settlement” with no history in the land

     “Fatah Central Committee Member and [PA] Commissioner of International Relations Nabil Shaath said that the Israeli government’s demand that the State of Palestine recognize Israel as [a] Jewish [state] is the ideological and historical explanation [it] needs to justify the theft of Palestine. He said: ‘They want us to admit that they did not steal our land, since by recognizing the state [of Israel] as Jewish, we would be acknowledging that Palestine is their original land and country.’ He emphasized that this would never happen under any circumstances.
He [Shaath] added: ‘This recognition threatens the right of return and the Palestinians in Israel (i.e., Israeli Arabs). It would mean depriving them of their right to citizenship, and defining them as aliens or visitors. Israel’s aim is to justify the continuation of the colonialist settlement of the occupied land and the [refusal to] retreat from any part of Jerusalem, [which they consider their eternal capital.’ He also said: ‘With this demand, they are threatening the Palestinian [West] Bank, since the propaganda, deceitfulness and claims of the Zionist movement were based on [the idea] that their historic roots were, in fact, in the [West] Bank.
What this means is that they are preparing justifications for stealing the lands of the State of Palestine. Through this recognition, the settlement will become legal, meaning [it] will no [longer] be colonialism.’
He added: ‘They are trying to falsify reality, and their historic stories about their connection to the land of Palestine are questionable…

Fatah youth: Jews are “new invaders” to the land

     “Fatah’s Shabiba [youth] movement in the West Bank published a press release in response to the declarations made by the extreme right-wing Prime Minister of the occupation, Benjamin Netanyahu, demanding that President Mahmoud Abbas [publicly] declare his recognition of Israel as a Jewish state at Birzeit University…
In its statement, Fatah’s Shabiba said that Netanyahu and his right-wing government should learn from history, which has proven at every stage that nations yearning for freedom, justice and independence inevitably achieve victory, and that occupation, racism and darkness are fated to vanish. It [the movement] noted in its statement that every olive tree and every speck of dust in Jerusalem, Jaffa, Acre, Safed, Nablus, Ramallah, Hebron, Gaza and all of Palestine recognizes the true owners of the land, for Palestinian land is alive and knows its original inhabitants, and knows who the new invaders are. [The message also stated that] the Nakba (“the catastrophe,” the Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel) of our people, their expulsion from their villages and cities and the destruction of [their] villages over 66 years ago, will not erase the facts nor change the true face of the land."

Article in PA daily denies Ethiopian Jewry's connection to Israel

     “[At the Al-Karameh border crossing between Jordan and the PA,] it was business as usual, when suddenly, I was standing before a Falash Mura [Ethiopian] soldier. After checking my passport, he asked me to wait on a chair next to a man whose features suggested he was of Far-Eastern origin. The Asian man, like the Falash Mura soldier, has nothing to do with the country – the former came as a visitor, while the latter can let me enter or turn me back.”

Note: The Falash Mura are descendants of Ethiopian Jews who converted to Christianity. In 2003, the Israeli government passed resolution 2948, granting Ethiopian descendants of Jewish mothers right to emigrate to Israel. Since then Israel has helped bring most of the Falash Mura to Israel.
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.”

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…"

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… ‎

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.’”‎

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.’”
