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.’”

Fatah Deputy Chairman: The establishment of Israel was “greatest crime” and “plot woven by a number of parties”

Headline: "Nablus: Marking the anniversary of the Nakba by remembering the [hunger] striking prisoners"

"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.

Lyrics:
“My land was green and covered in a green garment,
It never knew sadness,
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.

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.

Fatah Central Committee member and Fatah Commissioner for Arab and China Relations Abbas Zaki: "The situation is dangerous and instruments of religion are being used [to increase the danger]. [US public servant] Susan Rice said in 2005: 'We want an Islam that suits us.' [US public servant] Martin Indyk said in 2002: 'For Israel, we must change the conflict into a conflict between Sunnis and Shi'ites.' Now they have started to talk about Sunni and Shi’ite states. 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."

Susan Rice and Martin Indyk are American public servants who have served in various positions. Rice and Indyk were senior fellows in the Brookings Institution foreign policy program in the years these alleged quotes were attributed to them. Among his many positions, Indyk served as US Ambassador to Israel in 1995-1997 and 2000-2001. PMW was unable to locate any quotes correlating to those attributed to them by Abbas Zaki.

He emphasized the centrality of the Palestinian cause for the Arabs, Muslims, and free people of the world until the Palestinian people succeeds in liberating its land and establishing its independent state, whose capital is Jerusalem. This is because there will be no security or peace in the region, or even in the entire world, without Jerusalem as the capital of the Palestinian state…

"Arab experts and researchers emphasized yesterday [Feb. 8, 2017] that the book ‘The Bible Proves that Palestine is Arab,' published by researcher Dua Al-Sharif, refutes all of the lies and false narratives that Israel has disseminated throughout recent decades in an attempt to prove the claims regarding 'what is called the Promised Land, the Judaization of Jerusalem, and the construction of the Temple on the ruins of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque.'
These statements were made during a discussion about the book ‘The Bible Proves that Palestine is Arab’ at the international book fair in Cairo, with the participation of Secretary-General of the Arab League Sa'id Abu Ali, political analyst and researcher Dr. Sarkis Abu Zaid, and author of the book and expert on Israeli affairs Dua Al-Sharif. The Egyptian Middle East News Agency quoted Sa'id Abu Ali who said: 'The Israeli claims are based only on false claims and lies, and this is what the researcher has proven by examining the historical facts, that there is no promise, Promised [Land], or anything else, and it does not matter what they do, Palestine will remain Arab.'
Dr. Sarkis Abu Zaid noted that 'The conflict with Israel is cultural and military,' and that 'This book comes at a time when the colonialist states are struggling over the division of the region in order to create a new map that will first of all serve the West and Israel.' He added that Israel intentionally falsified history in order to erase the Palestinian identity, as the Israeli myth claims that the Bible is the spiritual father of modern culture, while everything that is written in it was taken and stolen from the Arab cultures, such as the ancient Egyptian culture, the Iraqi culture, and the Canaanite culture.

Whether by dividing the land of a sick man (Ottoman Turkey) [parentheses in source] in the days of [the] Sykes-Picot [Agreement], the wall and tower and laundry line phenomenon as a declaration of the establishment of a settlement, or using all the force of the British Mandate in order to obtain this land under the umbrella of the first sin – the ominous Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration), whose 100th anniversary will take place [soon]... Even when the world conspired to turn the folklore myths into Jewish history and issued [UN] Partition Resolution 181, the Zionist movement refused to be satisfied with the international decision and insisted on the logic of settlement, which is theft of our Palestinian land by force, the force of scheming, the force of deceit in many forms, and the force of the weapon, iron, fire, and abominable massacres..."

Excerpt of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas' statements at the press conference with French President Francois Hollande on Feb. 7, 2017 in Paris

...I have discussed with His Honor [French] President [Francois] Hollande the inherent dangers in the possibility of the embassy of any state being transferred to Jerusalem, as this is a violation of international law. At this opportunity, we emphasize that we view East Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Palestine. We want it to be open to the faithful of all of the monotheistic religions – Judaism, Christianity, and Islam…
Yesterday the government of Britain announced that it is inviting Israeli Prime Minister [Benjamin Netanyahu] to participate in the celebrations of the 100th [anniversary] of the issuing of the Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration) in 1917. The Balfour Promise is the reason for our tragedy, and this is a matter which surprises [us] and to which we object. We demand that the government of Britain apologize to the Palestinian people for the destruction and expulsion that it caused our people. We also demand that it recognize the State of Palestine, in accordance with the recommendation of the British House of Commons from 2014…
I told His Honor President [Hollande] that we stand by France and support the French and international efforts to fight terror and violence, which we condemn – whatever their form and source. This is because terror has no religion, and contradicts all religious, spiritual, and human values."
