Israeli demand to remove monument to terrorist is part of conflict between "false Zionist narrative" and Palestinian "narrative" and "identity"

Headline: “The Martyr Nazzal monument remains”

Excerpt of an op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, regular columnist for the official PA daily

        “At the height of the heated conflict between the [Palestinian] national narrative and the false Zionist narrative that contradicts history and geography, the extremist Zionist leadership of Israel is attempting to ‘dissolve’ the national narrative by persecuting its symbols…  [Israel] will not stop with the removal of the Martyr Khaled [Nazzal (i.e., terrorist, responsible for murder of 31)] monument, but rather will continue to extort us regarding our identity, our names, our birthdates, and the livelihood of our prisoners and their relatives. Every time that we retreat before it in the name of the superficial argument of flexibility and cutting corners, it will persecute us until we turn into slaves of its colonialist narrative’s will and logic.”

Headline: "Gaza’s sewage is streaming toward the Gaza Strip envelope settlements"

"Head of the Gaza Envelope Settlements (i.e., in Israel near the border with the Gaza Strip) Regional Council Yair Farjun (i.e., head of the Hof Ashkelon regional council) has sent a letter to Israeli Minister of the Army (i.e., Defense) Avigdor Liberman and [Israeli] Minister of Environmental [Protection] Zeev Elkin, in which he warned against disastrous environmental events about to occur in the region if the reduction in the electricity [supplied] to Gaza continues."

In early June 2017 Israel decided to reduce the electricity supply to the Gaza Strip at the request of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, who sought to pressure Hamas by saying he will no longer pay for the Gaza Strip’s electricity.

Headline: “[PA] Ministry of Information: Netanyahu does not cease to incite and is doing nothing for peace”

“The [PA] Ministry of Information today (Tuesday) [June 20, 2017] said that it is monitoring Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s statements against [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas regarding what he called ‘ poisoning the minds of Palestinian youth,’ his demand to ‘educate for peace, not terror,’ and his attack on naming a square after Martyr (Shahid) Khaled Nazzal (i.e., terrorist, planned murder of 31 ) in Jenin.
The [PA] ministry added in its announcement that the government of Israel, and its leader Netanyahu, do not cease lethal incitement and to pay money for the defense of Israeli murderers, criminals, and terrorists.
It continued: ‘The incitement from the occupation prime minister is the recycling of an occupation discourse packed with fraud and fabrication, while ignoring that Israel is proud of murderers and criminals from among its army and its settlers who have committed crimes against humanity against the members of our people since 1948, have committed barbaric massacres, have completely erased hundreds of cities and villages, and are continuing on the same path throughout the Palestinian land.’

PA TV: Israel a “destructive colonialist project” established through Britain’s “great fraud and deception” 
Source: Official PA TV Live, June 15, 2017
Official PA TV Live program The TV Dictionary, on the Al-Fida'iya Association

“The Al-Fida'iya Association is considered the first Palestinian military association, even though the armed activity against the Zionist project began in 1886, when Palestinian residents that were thrown out of the village of Mulabbis attacked the homes of the settlers that were built on the lands of their village (i.e., Petah Tikva). The Al-Fida'iya Association began to operate in 1918, after Britain occupied Palestine. The association established branches in Palestinian cities such as Jerusalem, Gaza, Nablus, Hebron, Tulkarem, and Ramle .
Muhammad Al-Dabbagh led the organization, and afterwards he was replaced by Mahmoud Aziz Al-Khaledi, and the organization had a secret advisory council whose members included: Haj Amin Al-Husseini (i.e., Grand Mufti of Jerusalem who collaborated with Adolf Hitler), Sheikh Sa’id Al-Khatib, [and] Hassan Abu Al-Saoud … The organization operated in complete secrecy…
This organization acted to prepare the comprehensive revolution against the British occupation, and to resist the Zionist project, and was especially interested in disseminating the principles of Arab unity. The Al-Fida'iya Association provided small arms to its members and prepared lists with the names of the Zionist leaders.
[The organization] established a unit for the purpose of monitoring what was happening and being published in the press (i.e., a type of intelligence service)… and even though the general view regarding Britain at the time basically assumed that Britain was an ally of the Arabs… afterwards Britain’s great fraud and deception were exposed, which led to the establishment of a destructive colonialist project that shattered the hopes of the Arab nation, and imposed an oppressive occupation from whose disastrous results the whole region is still suffering from to this day.

Fatah denies Jewish history: Jews have no historical right to “claim ownership over land or settle in it” 
Source: Official Fatah Facebook page, June 5, 2017
Link to op-ed article and text from the article posted on the official Fatah Facebook page

Posted text: “We explicitly note that it is forbidden for any member of the Jewish religion to claim yesterday or today that he has a national, genetic-hereditary, or tribal connection to the Arab Yemenite Children of Israel who have disappeared from the world. It has already been proven scientifically to those who claim this that there is no such connection (sic., research has proven Jews share such connections and Yemenite Jews still exist -Ed.), and so too regarding the claims about a land or wall (sic., there is abundant archaeological evidence proving the Jewish connection to Israel and the Western Wall –Ed.).
We say that no one today has the right to claim ownership of any place that is considered in their eyes as holy or a place that is forbidden to enter for anyone other than them, as in the case of the lies of the Promised Land, the Holy Land, and the Chosen People. Otherwise, all of the Christians of the world would come to live in Palestine, as it is holy to them, which is something that has never doubted, and it is likewise holy to the Muslims. An ancient example of this is the wars of the Europeans - the invaders called Crusaders – which were waged in the region.
Therefore, no members of any religion, and particularly the Jews who currently are comprised of a number of different nationalities, have a right to claim ownership over a place, to conquer it, and to settle in it, or to claim that its sanctity grants them ownership over it and allows them to steal it to establish their state in it.”
PLO invents Palestinian history, denies Jewish history: “Our people has lived for thousands of years, Israel has no connection”

Headline: "The National Council: The international community must demand an accounting from Israel"

"The Palestinian National Council (i.e., the legislative body of the PLO) said in a notice that it published today (June 4, 2017) for the passing of 50 years since the Naksa (i.e., "the setback," Palestinian term for Israel's victory in the Six Day War) of Palestine… that occupied Jerusalem, with all of its sites that are holy to Christianity and Islam, its Al-Aqsa Mosque, its Church of the Holy Sepulchre, and all of its cultural and human heritage, is the eternal capital of the Palestinian people, the land of the forefathers, in which our people has lived for thousands of years. It is purely Palestinian land to which Israel has no connection…
The Palestinian National Council emphasized again the continuation of the Palestinian struggle in all its means and forms (i.e., including violence) against the Israeli occupation until the achievement of all of our legal rights – the right of return and the right to establish an independent and sovereign state whose capital is Jerusalem on the borders of June 4, 1967."
PA Observer to the UN distorts facts: “Zionist terror organizations massacred 400 cities and villages in 1948”

Headline: “Mansour sent the UN a letter about the Nakba”

“Permanent Observer of Palestine to the UN Ambassador Riyad Mansour sent three identical letters to the three heads of the UN: the UN CEO, this month’s president of the Security Council (Egypt), and the chairman of the General Assembly. In the letters he noted that May 15, 2016 was the 68th anniversary of the Nakba (i.e., “the catastrophe,” Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel) in 1948.

In his letters, Mansour explained that 68 years ago more than 800,000 Palestinians were uprooted, expelled from their homes and lands, or fled out of fear for their lives, after the Zionist terrorist organizations perpetrated barbaric massacres in more than 400 cities and villages in Mandatory Palestine, in a clear act of ethnic cleansing… [He added:] ‘Today, the Palestinian Nakba continues. Millions of them live in the Diaspora as refugees, without receiving their inalienable right to return to their homes, or continue to live in the State of Palestine, including in East Jerusalem, under Israeli military occupation for nearly 50 years. They are forced to suffer the constant violations of their human rights and endure more loss of life and property, in addition to indescribable suffering and difficulty.’ Ambassador Mansour noted that on Nakba Day, ‘we must again emphasize the Palestinian refugees’ right of return, a collective and personal right according to UN resolutions, and especially resolution 194 of the General Assembly. This right does not expire as time passes, and honoring it is basic to achieving a just and permanent solution to the conflict.’”

"Residents of Nablus yesterday, Monday [May 15, 2017] marked the 69th anniversary of the Nakba (i.e., “the catastrophe,” Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel) of the Palestinian people and its uprooting from its land in 1948.
Fatah Movement Central Committee member [and Fatah Deputy Chairman] Mahmoud Al-Aloul and Nablus District Governor Akram Al-Rajoub participated in the ceremony to mark Nakba Day in the center of Nablus
Al-Aloul said: 'The Nakba event is a memorial day for the greatest crime in history against the Palestinians and the plot woven by a number of parties in order to occupy our land and expel us from it. This is the land of the holy sites, and we will not concede our cause and our struggle to realize the goal of the Palestinian people to return to its homes.'
He added: 'We guard the keys of return and will pass the idea from generation to generation in order to protect the right to adhere to return.’"

Palestinians commemorate Nakba Day on May 15, the day after Israeli Independence Day. On May 15, 1948, combined forces from Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Iraq joined Palestinian Arab forces in an attempt to eradicate the newly-established State of Israel. The Nakba (i.e. "the catastrophe) refers to the displacement of Palestinians that occurred as a result of this Arab war of aggression against Israel.

But after what happened everything changed to bitterness,
After they [the Jews] walked [on it] with their feet, the singing turned into sadness.
O Lod, Haifa, and Ramle (i.e., Israeli cities), my land and not the land of the Jews,
In a moment it became occupied.”

"[PA] Minister of Education Sabri Saidam emphasized that he adheres to the Palestinian curriculum as formulated by the [PA] Ministry of Education, and that he will not allow any change to the curriculum by UNRWA (UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East). Saidam said this in a letter that he sent to one of the participants in a meeting convened by the Central Council of Parents in the Gaza Districts and [the Council of Parents] in the Maghazi Refugee Camp…
The meeting participants discussed UNRWA's attempt to change the curriculum for grades 1–4 in the UNRWA schools.
Chairman of the Council of Parents in Maghazi and member of the Central Council of Parents in the Gaza Districts Wasef Abu Mashayekh explained the dangers of UNRWA changing the curriculum. He emphasized that the goal behind this is to erase the Palestinian identity. He also noted that the goal of these changes is to erase all of the Palestinian national symbols and features and harm the philosophical, moral, and national foundations of the curriculum, and first and foremost to erase the map of Palestine (i.e., the PA map of Palestine that presents all of Israel as "Palestine" together with the PA areas –Ed.) and its name, to establish the existence of the 'Israeli' occupation on the Palestinian land, and [to claim] it has a right."

Green Life Association Chairman Faisal Zakarneh: “This is a flower that grows in the Gilboa Mountains (i.e., in northern Israel). At this opportunity, let me explain that Gilboa is an ancient Palestinian-Canaanite-Arabic word, and not Hebrew-Israeli. This needs to be clear. In our minds [the name Gilboa] is connected to the Gilboa Prison... but the occupier has always made us used to him using our language and stealing it and its Arabic-Canaanite-Palestinian names.”

Mount Gilboa has been the Hebrew name of the location since Biblical times, and notably appears in Samuel 1 Chapter 31 as the location where Saul, the first king of Israel, died in battle.

The second image shows a mosque with a dome that is shining red like an alarm, while a hand with a Star of David on its sleeve covers the mouth of the mosque tower to prevent the call to prayer.

On Feb. 12, 2017, a bill to ban religious institutions from broadcasting over loudspeakers between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. was authorized by the Israeli Ministerial Committee for Legislation and is now pending parliamentary approval. The bill is intended to prevent noise pollution and is referred to by many as the "Muezzin Law," although it does not apply to any specific religion.
Other countries have already approved or attempted legislation for regulating the use of loudspeakers in mosques in order to limit noise pollution. These include India, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Turkey, Bahrain, the United Emirates, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, France, the UK, Austria, Norway, and Belgium, and the US. The PA has also passed legislation regarding the use of loudspeakers in mosques in order to reduce noise pollution.

[US public servant] Susan Rice said in 2005: 'We want an Islam that suits us.'

The time has come for us to develop an Arab-Persian dialogue and close this matter, so that we do not give Israel an excuse to talk about a Jewish state."
