Jewish history rewritten
Jewish history in Land of Israel erased
Israel “attempts to erase the real Arab history” in Jerusalem “and replace it with a fake Jewish history which has no roots in this land

Official PA TV report on the opening of the “Second Conference of the National Council for Jerusalem – Eternal Capital of Arab Culture”
Official PA TV reporter: “The conference, which was attended by numerous politicians and clerics, as well as by a group of intellectuals, writers and poets from Jerusalem, issued a warning [regarding] the future of the Holy City, in view of the increase in the attacks of the settler herds on the holy places and their attempts to erase the real Arab history and replace it with a fake Jewish history which has no roots in this land.”
Secretary-General of the Islamic-Christian Council for Jerusalem and the Holy Places Hanna Issa: “We are holding this conference in light of the cultural and educational changes being implemented by the Israeli occupation in Jerusalem, such as the change in the school curriculum, the giving of Jewish – not Arab – street names, the construction of over 9,500 fake graves around the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and the construction of the Strauss Building, higher than the Al-Aqsa Mosque – all of which come as part of [a plan to create] a new culture for Jerusalem.”

Official PA TV News report on the Judaization of Jerusalem
Official PA TV reporter: “This is a total war to uproot the indigenous owners and children of this land by various means of exile. [A war] to eradicate its history, holy places and heritage, to settle foreigners [in their place] and give them a new character (i.e., as indigenous), hand in hand with the crime of the ongoing Judaization of the city [Jerusalem].”
Jews are not descendants of tribe of Israel, were never in Palestine and are not a real nation 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 15, 2014
We can allude to five main [points] of dispute [between the Palestinians and Israelis:]
1. The Israelis say: ‘This is our land, not your land...’ [So,] Mandatory Palestine deceptively becomes historic ‘Israel,’ a fact that has been disproved by many, most prominently by Shlomo Sand.
2. They say: ‘We are more ancient, because we had kingdoms (the fact is, if they did indeed exist then they were Arab and existed elsewhere… and the Israelis of today have nothing to do with them) [parenthesis in source] and we had prophets.’ [They say] this despite the fact that gaps have begun to appear in this story in recent years, with the appearance of intellectuals, historians and archaeologists who reject claims regarding the antiquity [of the Jewish people] and kingdoms, either in terms of size and territory or in terms of their very existence in Palestine…
3. In addition, the claim that the Israelis were and remain a single nation is highlighted, and that they belong to an ancient race (meaning that ethnically, genetically and nationally they are the successors of the People of Israel, who were in fact the tribe of Israel – Arab Yemenites who are no more) [parenthesis in source] – a point that has been completely disproved by experimental science and genetics…
4. They lie that they are a ‘nation,’ though they never were..."

Note: Shlomo Sand is an Israeli professor of history who has stated that he does not think Israelis or Jews have a “historical right” to the land.
Official PA daily: Israel is a "colonialist, settler and Orientalist state, ‎which fabricated a historical narrative in ‎order to colonize Palestine‎"

Op-ed by Izz Al-Din As'ad
     ‎“IS was‎ a pawn of Israeli-American ‎intelligence, meant to fulfill the dream of ‎the Jewish state…‎ The danger in a religious state is evident ‎to all groups of a people’s ethnic and ‎religious minorities, given that the Islamic ‎State – represented ‎ by IS – has ‎imposed a poll tax on the Iraqi Christians, ‎and fought other Muslims – both Sunni ‎and Shiite – under the pretext of [their] ‎having forsaken Islam and [committed] ‎heresy. In other words, a religious state, ‎whatever the religion may be, is based on ‎an ideology of exclusion, inequality, ‎injustice…‎ Every religious state has fought and will ‎always fight other religious and ethnic ‎minorities in order to expel them from the ‎country. This is what happened in Serbia, ‎this is what is being carried out in Iraq by ‎IS, and this is what may happen to the ‎Palestinians in Israel, both Muslims and ‎Christians, if the dream of the Jewish state ‎is fulfilled…‎
Establishing a Jewish state means the ‎Jewish territory controlled by the Jewish ‎state will be land for Jews only. In the ‎Palestinian case, this is a complex issue, ‎because this state is a colonialist, settler ‎and Orientalist state, which fabricated a ‎historical narrative in order to colonize ‎Palestine. It will act forcefully to destroy ‎the Arab society in Palestine, which was ‎colonized in 1948. This may amount to the ‎expulsion of the Palestinians living in ‎Jerusalem, in order to cleanse the Jewish ‎state of the ‘gentiles’ – the Jewish term for ‎non-Jews…‎
The creation of IS, the outlining of its ‎strategy... contribute ‎dangerously to the realization of the idea ‎that Israel is a Jewish state.''
Senior PLO official Hanan Ashrawi attacks Obama for acknowledging Jewish history 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Aug. 10, 2014

PLO Executive Committee member Hanan Ashrawi: "Look at the most dangerous thing that Obama said to [New York Times journalist] Thomas Friedman. Once again, he [Obama] has adopted the discourse of Zionist ideology. He adopted it when he came to this region, speaking about the Jews' return to their land, and that this is a Jewish state, the Zionist dream, and so on. Obama's adoption of the discourse of extremist Zionist ideology and his turning it into a basis for political decision-making is dangerous."

     ‎“The Palestinian people, including all its ‎factions, are taking a stand against the ‎escalating Zionist aggression, which ‎began when the Israeli regime took ‎advantage of the disappearance and later ‎killing of the three settlers (i.e., kidnapping ‎and murder of three Israeli teens).

This campaign… which accompanied ‎‎[Israel’s] military aggression throughout ‎the West Bank (which they call, in a ‎falsification of history, ‘Judea and ‎Samaria,’ neither of which ever existed ‎here) [parenthesis in source], has borne ‎its fruit among the extremist Israeli right, ‎which has taken the law into its hands ‎under the protection of the Israeli soldiers, ‎as part of what it calls revenge for the ‎deaths of the three settlers…‎
They are performing the same act, with ‎dozens of massacres and Holocausts ‎against our people in Palestine, from the ‎Nakba (i.e., ‘the catastrophe,’ Palestinian ‎term for the establishment of the State of ‎Israel) till today. In this way, the incitement ‎campaign bounces back on Netanyahu ‎and strikes him, and the suffering of the ‎Palestinian people is once more revealed, ‎as opposed to the whining of Netanyahu ‎and those he considers his Jewish ‎‎‘nation,’ which was invented just a ‎hundred years ago.‎"

Fatah refers to all Israelis as "settlers" and "bastards" from foreign countries 
Source: Facebook, Fatah - The Main Page, July 2, 2014
     “Who is the source of terrorism?
By the poet of the homeland, Khaled Al-Issa

I opened the book
And found the answer:
The source of terrorism is the Zionist
Come and see what happened...

The Zionist, by Allah, is treacherous
O settler, O malicious one
Your time has ended
Read the papers, lawless settler
And hear, O settlers:
You have neither conscience nor religion.
Bastards, all of you
You were brought to this land
From [Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs Avigdor] Liberman’s Russia,
from Ethiopia and Sudan
And the settler is like a monkey...

O world, O sleepers
The birds alight on your heads
Look, see what has happened in Palestine
Where are the decision-makers?

This [West] Bank is protected
And the hearts in it are burning.
O Arabs, enough betrayal:
We wish for the blood to become rivers...

This homeland wants [your] rage -
It does not want you to wait.”

Islamic-Christian Council for Jerusalem: Israel "never saw or knew any Jewish civilization, antiquities"

     “Secretary-General of the Islamic-Christian Council for Jerusalem and the Holy Places Hanna Issa said…: ‘Fate and divine will willed that the land of Jerusalem be filled with countless civilizations and antiquities – for there are various antiquities under most of the properties in the Old City of Jerusalem, including hallways, cellars, tunnels, water shafts, bath houses and places of worship… whose history goes back over 5,000 years. In the past, the Near East knew ancient civilizations of various kinds that succeeded each other, but it never saw or knew any Jewish civilization, antiquities or even a historic structure.”
Official PA daily: The Israel Antiquities Authority ‎searches for ancient Jewish history in Israel, but finds nothing more than a few synagogues 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 27, 2014
‎     “In recent years, the Israel Antiquities ‎Authority has discovered numerous ‎Byzantine-period sites in the Negev ‎desert, including – in addition to churches ‎‎– synagogues from the same period, built ‎beside the churches. It is known that ‎several synagogues from the Byzantine ‎and early Islamic periods exist in ‎Palestine, including the Shahwan ‎Synagogue (i.e., the Shalom Al-Yisrael ‎Synagogue) in Jericho. The Israeli ‎‎[Antiquities] Authority’s efforts to search ‎for an ancient Jewish history have ‎resulted in nothing more than the ‎discovery of these synagogues – whose ‎existence reflects, according to all ‎opinions, what can be described as ‎tolerance during the period of transition ‎between the end of Byzantine rule and ‎the arrival of the Muslim Arabs in ‎Palestine.…‎
The [founding] father of the State of Israel, ‎David Ben Gurion, dreamed of turning the ‎Negev desert into a paradise in which ‎Jews would live; therefore, the Zionist ‎gangs embarked on an ethnic cleansing ‎operation which included most of the ‎Arabs. The Israeli authorities treated those ‎who remained like Indians, concentrating ‎them on special ‘reservations.’ Every ‎community outside the reservations was ‎considered ‘illegal…’‎
Every conqueror and invader who ‎reached this desert either regarded it ‎differently (i.e., saw its potential) – as did, ‎for example, the Nabateans, who built a ‎series of forts on the Incense and Spice ‎route…– or neglected it, allowing its tribes ‎to either fight or make peace with each ‎other, as the Ottomans did, or tried to take ‎control of it, as the new occupiers are ‎doing.”‎

Official PA daily: "Israel lives on... hallucinations from the time of the Babylonian or Roman exile for which not a single proof exists"

     "The current Israeli government is continuously accusing the PA of incitement, of a rise in Antisemitism and of harming Israel's image! Let us quickly analyze the situation, and we'll discover that no one in the world harms Israel's image more, reveals its racism, and its contempt and provocation of world public opinion more than Netanyahu and his ministers, especially those from the Likud, Bait Yehudi and Yisrael Beiteinu...
Israel lives on an extensive system of British Mandatory laws, illusory biblical maps, hallucinations from the time of the Babylonian or Roman exile for which not a single proof exists, and on acts borrowed from the Nazis, which the Israelis are now imitating against the Palestinian people...
Naturally, there are millions of examples of how Israel lives in contradiction with itself. It demands recognition of a Jewish state, even though the entire world knows that its two biggest waves of immigration at the end of the last century, from Russia and the former Soviet Union, and (Ethiopian Jews) from the region of the Falash Mura ... included hundreds of thousands of Christians, Muslims and pagans, who have no connection to the Jewish state. Furthermore, important and highly reliable contemporary historians have proven that the most important Zionist activists, especially in Eastern Europe, were of Khazar origin, with no relationship to the so-called 12 Jewish tribes! ...
Legalizing the illegal, legitimizing the illegitimate, presenting history in a one-sided way, and howling like mad wolves - this is what Netanyahu is doing at the head of his present government, in an insane race against time, clearly loathing everyone and misanalysing what is happening in the region and in the world."

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.’”

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."

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"

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.”

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.
