Op-ed in official PA daily: “Religious, historical, and even biblical facts deny any connection between the Jews and Jerusalem” or to “historic Palestine”

Headline: “Ziedan’s irrational teleology”
Op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, columnist for official PA daily
     “[Egyptian author] Dr. Youssef Ziedan dropped a heavy bomb with his rational approach to the status of Jerusalem when he rejected its Arab identity, and the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the First Direction of Prayer and the third ‘Sanctuary’ , its Islamic value, and considered it a ‘myth’ with no connection to reality. He relied on the history of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, which was built by Abd Al-Malik Ibn Marwan (the 5th Umayyad caliph. –Ed.) in 65 AH, in other words after the death of the Prophet Muhammad, thus giving the Jews the right to Palestine...First, the religious, historical, and even biblical facts deny any connection between the Jews and Jerusalem. Anyone turning to Jewish historians and archaeologists will understand this truth, as some of them, such as Israel Finkelstein, Neil Asher Silberman (i.e., Israeli archeologists), and Shlomo Sand (i.e., a history professor at Tel Aviv University), have confirmed that there is no such connection. In addition, Israel is already in existence for seven long decades in historic Palestine, and its archeologists are searching for any evidence that will connect them to Jerusalem or the Palestinian land, but they have not found even a small piece of evidence to confirm the Zionist assumption. Second, a large number of Arab and foreign historians have confirmed that the locations noted in the bible have no connection to Palestine, and they are all to be found in Yemen and the Arabian Peninsula. Third, the fact that the [Al-Aqsa] Mosque was not built in its present form does not rule out its presence there in its original form and the fact that Caliph Abd Al-Malik Ibn Marwan built it here, where it stands until today, only reinforces the words of the Quran. Fourth, Dr. Youssef knows well that the Zionist narrative is a fundamentall
Op-ed in PA daily: Jerusalem was never the Hebrew name of a Jewish city, and the Hebrew language never existed

Headline: "The Blathering Intellectual"
Op-ed by Editor-in-Chief Mahmoud Abu Al-Hija
     "Those who founded Jerusalem were the Jebusite and Canaanite Palestinians, and they inhabited it in the fifth millennium BC. First, it was called Jebus, and then 'Ur salem' after its Canaanite king, and 'Ur Salem' is a completely Arab name. After the Islamic conquest, it was renamed 'Aelia [Capitolina]' (Roman colony built on the ruins of Jerusalem in 136 AD following the Bar Kochba Revolt, conquered by the Persians in 614 AD –Ed.) and this name appeared in the Pact of Umar (i.e., pact signed between the Muslims and Christians of Syria after the Muslim conquest of 637). Later on, during the Abbasid period (i.e., third of the Islamic caliphates to succeed the Islamic Prophet Muhammad), it was called Bait Al-Maqdis, and this name appeared in the poems of Abu-Nuwas (i.e., classical Arabic poet born in the 8thcentury BC). The holy city did not carry any Hebrew name in history, and the Hebrew language did not exist there or anywhere else, it was Aramaic.”

     ‎“Egyptian author Youssef Ziedan said ‎something that no one before him had ‎said – that Al-Quds (i.e., the Arabic name ‎for Jerusalem) is a Hebrew word, and that ‎the present Al-Aqsa Mosque was built by ‎Abd Al-Malik Ibn Marwan (the 5th ‎Umayyad caliph. –Ed.), and the original ‎mosque is on the road to Ta'if (city in ‎Saudi Arabia –Ed.), and raised doubts ‎about [Prophet] Muhammad’s Night ‎Journey from Mecca to Jerusalem and his ‎Ascent to Heaven. ‎
Of course we are not interested in getting ‎into a religious or linguistic debate with ‎the author, but he knows better than ‎others that a Hebrew language did not ‎exist, and that the language of the Jews ‎was Aramaic, and to this very day it ‎‎[Hebrew] is a mixture of Canaanite, ‎Aramaic, and Arabic…‎
Moreover, the word ‘Quds’ does not exist ‎in today’s Jewish language, but was ‎employed in Arabic later on as a reference ‎to the holy places within it‏ ‏‎[Jerusalem].‎
‎[Jerusalem] was called Aelia [Capitolina] ‎‎(Roman colony built on the ruins of ‎Jerusalem in 136 AD following the Bar ‎Kochba Revolt, and it was conquered by ‎the Persians in 614 AD –Ed.) at the time of ‎the Prophet [Muhammad], peace and ‎blessing be upon him, and before that ‎Ursalim, and the Jews called it Jerusalem, ‎and before that – Jebus.” ‎
PA Minister of Religious Affairs: Cave of the Patriarchs "is a purely Islamic mosque, in all its plazas and sections, and the Jews have no ties to it" 
Source: WAFA, official PA news agency, Nov. 24, 2015
Headline: “Ida’is: The occupation’s attacks on the Ibrahimi Mosque plazas constitute a forgery of its history”
     “[PA] Minister of Religious Affairs Sheikh Yusuf Ida’is said that the attack carried out by the occupation (i.e., Israeli) authorities and settlers against the outer plaza adjacent to the white steps of the Ibrahimi Mosque (i.e., Cave of the Patriarchs) in Hebron constitutes a blatant blow to the Ibrahimi Mosque and its plaza, contempt for Muslim sensibilities, and a change in the character of the mosque and its history…
Minister Ida’is condemned in an exclusive interview with WAFA the acts of the occupation whose goal is to forge and change the history of this holy site, and said: ‘The occupation authorities and the settlers are acting to forge everything Islamic in Jerusalem and Hebron, and especially in the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Ibrahimi Mosque, by changing the Islamic historical characters of the [Al-Aqsa] Mosque and the [Ibrahimi] Mosque…
He added that the arbitrary steps that are harming the houses of worship constitute a blatant infringement on the monotheistic religions and freedom of worship, which is anchored in heavenly laws and international law. Likewise, he emphasized that the Ibrahimi Mosque ‘is a purely Islamic mosque, in all its plazas and sections, and the Jews have no ties to it, and all steps being taken within and around it are invalid.’”

The PA and its leaders consider the Cave of the Patriarchs to be a Muslim religious site with no connection to Jews. Therefore they view any presence of Jews there as an “attack.”

Continue to weigh on our chest, to kill our children and young people, to Judaize Jerusalem and our holy sites, to uproot us from our land, and to bring foreign Jews in our place, and to build homes for the Jewish ISIS in place of our homes! Remain, and we love your occupation, your injustice and terror, and get up every morning grateful for your Talmudic bloody crimes. Remain with your robbers’ swords in your hands... We do not want an independent Palestinian state with its capital in  Jerusalem. Your state which violates international law is enough for us... Who told [Israeli Parliament (Knesset) member Yair] Lapid that the Palestinian people does not want to get rid of the occupation? Who convinced Lapid that the Palestinian people wants to see the settlements on its land, army camps, tanks, tractors, soldiers and officers, into whom orders and Talmudic rabbis’ rulings have been injected, which allow the spilling of the blood of Palestinians, the original owners of the land? ... Does Lapid not know that the occupationis like a virus and the settlement is like cancer, and you are supposed to remove them from your body, and not the opposite? Unless the fabricating genius wants to take apart the body, cut it up, and crumble it, in order to keep its viruses and cancers!”

Headline: “Where are we in terms of victory over Netanyahu’s ‘Temple’?”
     “Netanyahu won by spreading a mishmash of concepts, in addition to his contribution to the chaos in the region and the publication of lies, while armed with violence and force. One of the noticeable results of this is what his Zionist friend John Kerry declared, who adopted [the idea that] the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque [plaza] is Jewish, and called it the ‘Temple Mount.’ There was no Temple here, and no mountain, and no history, not even in dreams. All this is intended only to advance Netanyahu’s fraud, which is still spreading patiently and moderately, and through daily actions, regarding what he calls the ‘land of Israel,’ or his lies about Jerusalem, which is mentioned dozens of times in the bible, and which according to him does not appear even once in the Quran! … In an attempt to follow in his historian father’s footsteps, Netanyahu also publicized a series of lies… regarding what he calls the ‘kingdoms of Israel,’ and claimed a connection to them. The tribe of Israel is a Yemenite Arab tribe which has passed from the world, and he has no connection to it, as he is a non-Arab who came from Lithuania.”

Likewise, leaders of the Zionist movement were also divided over the matter in their first congress 118 years ago, so much so that in the Basel, Switzerland congress in 1897, Theodore Herzl himself, the founder of Zionism, did not adopt the religious myths, but rather the political needs.”

I focused on the modern history of the Middle East, but the material also included the study of ancient history, on the assumption that it serves as a ‘background’ for the present. I ask the students of religion to accept what I say: There are no Jewish archeological remnants in our lands. There are no archeological remains of kingdoms or prophets… There were Jews in our lands, from east to west, but there were absolutely no kingdoms. Most of the Jews today are of Khazar origin, and are not ‘Sephardis’ - in other words - Middle Eastern… However the fathers of orthodox Judaism fled from the Caucasus Mountains to eastern Europe, and afterwards to its center, and became Zionists, or Ashkenazis (i.e., Jews of European descent). They claimed a right to Palestine, and the British colonialism and American administrations throughout the generations supported them, until Palestine was lost."

Headline: “The [Lebanese] Al-Quds Institute organized a conference in Gaza on the danger of the Israeli plans against the Al-Aqsa Mosque”
      “Politicians and academics warned of the dangerous Israeli plans against Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and of the escalation in the rate of recurring attacks and invasions, which are reaching the level of war crimes, and whose goal is to force the division [of the Al-Aqsa Mosque] by times and areas. Likewise, they noted that the historical facts verify that the Al-Buraq Wall (i.e., the Western Wall/Wailing Wall of the Temple Mount) is a holy site for Muslims, and it should not be called ‘the Wailing Wall’, as it has no connection to the Jews, according to a document of the International British Committee from 1930. This was said during a conference organized by the International Jerusalem Institute yesterday [Aug. 27, 2015] regarding the Al-Buraq Wall – between the Islamic right and Jewish claims, with the participation of many experts on Jerusalem, politicians, and academics… Dr. Abd Al-Latif Abu Hashem, an expert on Jerusalem, said that the Jews, according to what their bible says, tried to create their own historical and religious right to Jerusalem by claiming that the Al-Buraq wall is one of the walls of the Temple of Solomon, who is buried under the Al-Aqsa Mosque. However, the historical facts, the archeologists, and all excavations since 1968 have found no proof of Jewish antiquities in the area of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, nor was any proof of their antiquities found anywhere in the land of Palestine. This proves that the presence of Jews in the land of Palestine was nothing but the presence of invaders, like all of the other invaders who conquered Palestine and Jerusalem.”

Manager of the holy site Mundhir Abu Al-Failat stated that this invasion by Minister of War Ya’alon, together with many occupation soldiers, is part of the attempts to take over the holy Mosque of Hebron and its old city, which he considered to be a serious blow to the sanctity of the holy sanctuary, which is being desecrated by the Israeli occupation. Likewise, he emphasized that only Muslims have a right to it, and that the Jews have no connection to it…
For his part, Governor of Hebron District Kamel Hamid said that the visit of Israeli Minister of War Moshe Ya’alon to the Ibrahimi Mosque and to the old city shamefully reveals the Israeli government’s standing behind everything that is happening and that has been done to the holy places in Hebron and Jerusalem. He noted that this makes it directly responsible for the results of the situation, and the one that will bear the consequences of every step carried out by the extremist Jews, who are fully coordinated with the Israeli government.
He added that this visit and invasion are an addition of oil to the flames and an inflaming of our people’s sentiments by harming their faith and holy sites.”

The PA and its leaders consider the Cave of the Patriarchs to be a Muslim religious site with no connection to Jews. Therefore they view any presence of Jews there as an “invasion.”

     “Returning to the new initiatives on the negotiation table, the ‘Two States – One Homeland!’ initiative which will be officially announced tomorrow, Thursday [June 11, 2015], in Beit Jala (i.e., near Bethlehem), is the product of an agreement between Israeli and Palestinian figures. However, it should be noted that some of the Palestinians whose names are signed on it announced in advance that they do not recognize it, and that their names were added without asking them, which indicates their disagreement with what is stated in the initiative. This is after Palestinian media platforms and figures debated and pointed out serious flaws that it includes, among them [the statement] that ‘The two peoples recognize the historical rights of each other to the one homeland.’ Moreover, this initiative did not stop here. In addition to the deep confusion between the Palestinian and Zionist narrative, which equates the Palestinian owners of the land and history with the Zionist colonialists, forgers of history with the most abominable Zionist slogan, ’A land without people for a people without a land,’ the initiative also rejected the right of return of Palestinians to their land and homes from which they were expelled, and limited their return to the State of Palestine only (i.e., and not to Israel).”

     “When His Holiness [Pope Francis] said to President Mahmoud Abbas: ‘It is fitting to honor you with this medallion because you are an angel of peace,’ (sic., rather than calling Abbas an angel of peace, the pope said that he should be one) for us this was a certificate of recognition by billions of faithful in the world that the ideology and political conduct of President Abbas are noble, tolerant, and peaceful…
A deathly silence fell over the senior Israeli officials when the Catholic Church declared the Palestinian nuns Mary Alphonsine Ghattas (1843-1927) and Mariam Bawardi (1846-1878) as saints, and also afterwards. This is an [Israeli] admission, unwillingly made, of a historic fact, which will dwell forever in the consciousness and faith of billions of faithful in the world. None of those believing in the two falsehoods – ‘the promised land’ and ‘God’s chosen people’ – even dared to jump up and say that Saint Bawardi is ‘Israeli’ because she is from the Galilee. This is because, simply, they believe that their facts about our holy land (‘their country’) [parentheses in original] are artificial, and created through the terror of occupation and settlement, and that their foundations, which were invented not long ago, are similar to the roots of the desert thistle, as compared to the roots of the holy tree, which is the Palestinian man, which have existed ever since the relationship was established between man on earth and God in heaven…
It is natural that the two saints be Palestinian, and it is just that the fabricated Zionist narrative will take a fall before the holy throne."

Headline: “Returning the awareness and understanding of the situation in order to break the cage”
Op-ed by Muhammad Shtayyeh, member of the Fatah Central Committee, in the biweekly supplement of the official PA daily
     “Recently [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu came to us with the Jewish state that he wants to build in ‘Judea and Samaria’ (i.e., the West Bank), after the Zionist movement completed its colonialist economic project in the Palestinian coastal region (i.e., Israeli coast), which is the most fertile region in Palestine.
And the question is: If the state is ‘Jewish’ and relies on the geography of the Bible, why was the State of Israel not established from its beginning in ‘Judea and Samaria,’ in other words the West Bank, and the coastal region not left for the Palestinians? The answer is that the Zionist project was not a religious project at all, but rather a colonialist, economic, and settlement project meant to draw settlers, and religion was only one of the excuses for this project, which merited the sponsorship of the colonialist countries, and began as a source of mutual benefit for Britain and the Zionist movement, each for its own reasons.”
