PA daily: Israeli minister's visit to Cave of Patriarchs is "part of the occupation attack on the holy site" which was "stolen for the settlers" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Aug. 12, 2015
Headline: “The occupation’s Army Minister invades the Ibrahimi Mosque and opens the door to escalation”
     “Israeli Minister of War (sic., Minister of Defense) Moshe Ya’alon invaded the Ibrahimi Mosque (i.e., the Cave of the Patriarchs) in Hebron yesterday [Aug. 11, 2015], as part of the occupation attack on the holy site which was divided and stolen for the settlers (i.e., separate prayer times and areas of the site were designated for Muslims and Jews…
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.”
Official PA daily: "Zionist colonialists" are "forgers of history" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, June 10, 2015
Headline: “Two states – one homeland!”
Op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, regular columnist for the official PA daily
     “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).”
PA Deputy Minister: Palestinians were in Jerusalem “centuries before the Jewish religion” 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, May 24, 2015

Deputy Minister of Jerusalem Affairs and member of Fatah’s Revolutionary Council, Salwa Hadib:
‎‎“Jerusalem is not only a religious city. Jerusalem is civilization. It has been a Canaanite city for ‎thousands of years. The Palestinian people has been present in it for thousands of years, whether it ‎was in Babylon, Assyria or Canaan, they [the Palestinians] gathered in the area before anything else, ‎centuries before the Jewish religion... An Israeli engineer and an archeologist brought Israeli coins – ‎shekels and agoras – and threw them on the ground before the renovation [of the Al-Karmi ‎neighborhood in Jerusalem] in order to prove, after dozens and hundreds of years, that “we (i.e., the ‎Israelis) were present here.” They are stealing history and geography.”‎

Official PA daily: 19th century "Palestinian" saints prove Jewish history in Israel is a "fabricated Zionist narrative" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 19, 2015
Headline: “The saints and Mahmoud Abbas”
Excerpt of article by Muwaffaq Matar, regular columnist for the official PA daily
     “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."

The Palestinians, “[Jesus’] people”, suffer “from the Zionist Jews” the same way he did  
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 16, 2015
Op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, columnist for official PA daily
     “Palestine, the first sanctified land, that promised the oppressed and the defeated liberty, independence and eternal co-existence between human beings, all while carrying the dream of hope for rebirth, will be baptized on May 17, 2015, when it is recognized by the Vatican State. This means recognition of the political rights of the Arab Palestinian nation, support of the two-state option within the borders of June 4, 1967. [it is also] an apology to the messenger of peace and love, Jesus, may he rest in peace, who suffered from the injustice of the first Jews… in the same way his people, the Palestinians, have suffered from the Zionist Jews in the past and in the present… for the delay in doing them [the Palestinians] justice through restoring some of their rights.”
Official PA daily: Israelis are "foreign invaders"

Headline: “The Nakba – that the injustice will establish a country!”
Excerpt of article by Muwaffaq Matar, regular columnist for the official PA daily
     “That there should remain in the world a Palestinian refugee who wants to return to the homeland Palestine and the barbed wire and laws of the occupiers prevented him from doing so, and that the preachers of justice and freedom in the world would know that injustice established a state - from here began the Nakba (i.e., “the catastrophe,” the Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel) of the world…
The occupiers think, despite their intelligence, weapon capabilities, and financial capabilities, that our land does not differentiate between foreign invaders and those who love it; the land alone, like a mother, holds the secret of distinguishing between its true child and a fake one.
The foreign invaders know that the human memory is hidden in the ground, even if the bones of its people rot, but they [the foreign invaders] insist!”
Fatah member in PA daily: Zionist project is "a colonialist, economic, and settlement project" 
Source: Al-Asima, bi-weekly distributed with official PA daily, May 6, 2015
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.”

Fatah leader: Israelis "are strangers to this land both now and historically-speaking"

Headline: “Netanyahu and his five principles”

Op-ed by Fatah Revolutionary Council member Bakr Abu Bakr, regular columnist for official PA daily

“In [achieving] his electoral success, [Israeli Prime Minister] Benjamin Netanyahu did not rely on his rhetorical skills alone …rather, he stuck to five basic principles designed to project an image and reap success:
1. Netanyahu adopted a policy of instilling fear in the Israelis - as if his radical, terrorist government that opposes evacuating the settlements could promise the Israelis security, livelihood and stability…
2. The second principle [Netanyahu] relies on is the theft and crude falsification of history, based on the assumption that Palestine is the land of his “ancestors” – even though [Netanyahu] and those he represents are strangers to this land both now and historically speaking or [the land of] those he claims are his kings and prophets. This is [merely] a belief, and if he holds it, he has made good use of it to influence the Israeli and international consciousness, which is dominated by the bible’s historical nonsense.
3. The third principle, related to those described above, is that Netanyahu’s reliance on the falsification and theft of history is connected to the strong link created between the false-historic (in the Bible and its adjuncts) and the spiritual-religious [all parentheses in source]. He succeeded in inciting all the Orthodox Israelis (who will soon be the majority of the population), who are eager to steal lands, are thirsty for blood to please their god (against the gentiles), and crave pockets full of money..."

Al-Quds University professor, quoted in PA daily: “Hebrew texts are purely literary… This land is Palestinian” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Mar. 23, 2015
     “The Department of Social Studies (the Faculty of Education) at Al-Quds Open University, in cooperation with the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, organized a conference on the ancient history of Palestine, with the participation of experts from the University of Copenhagen. The President of Al-Quds Open University, Dr. Yunes Amro, stressed that the University had expressed interest in these activities as they contribute to [our] understanding of the foreign view of the Palestinian cause, supporting it on the international level.
Dr. Amro praised the efforts of Dr. Muhammad Issa, the Palestinian researcher at the University of Copenhagen who coordinated the conference, and who cooperated with several foreign researchers in order to examine the Palestinian narrative, communicate it to the world, and expose the injustice of the Israeli occupation. He said: ‘In their research, they concluded that the Hebrew texts are purely literary, with no connection to religion or belief. This proves that this land is Palestinian and that what is recounted in the contradicting narratives is nothing more than a lie.’ Issa clarified that the importance of the research conducted by the two Danish scholars together with him lies in the fact that they sparked a revolution in the views contained in the biblical narrative regarding Israel’s right to this land, as [they established that] these are literary texts that prove nothing and have nothing to do with history."

Story in youth magazine: “Palestine” is “Arabic Canaanite” and Jews should “leave here and be torn out and return to where they came from” 
Source: Zayzafuna magazine, Feb. 1, 2015
Excerpt in Zayzafuna, a PLO magazine for children funded by the PA, of the story Scheherazade and the Rich Land by Palestinian Saudi Arabian author Fatima Nazzal

In the story, Scheherazade is a Palestinian girl who was born and grew up in Saudi Arabia.

Headline: "Scheherazade and the Rich Land”
“My friends ask me: Why does your family stay there [in Palestine]? Why don’t they come here? Why do you want to die? The Jews are criminals?? I am silent. These questions demonstrate ignorance and superficial thinking and education. They don’t know that the injured homeland is Arabic Canaanite, and that it belongs to us and we are planted in it like the olive tree (planted in the homeland) like a thorn in the throat of the occupying monster. They [the Jews] want a land without a people and are doing everything to achieve this. And we want a whole land, they should leave here and be torn out and return to where they came from, or [the land] will be their final graveyard. They [the Jews] want to deny this [Palestinian] people. They are scared of the people’s children more than of the youth and elders. They are scared of a future which holds potential Martyrs (Shahids), who are ready to die and turn their bodies into bombs which will explode if they so wish. Don’t relax, O occupier, and know that Palestine is constantly born anew, and their stalks of wheat are not empty.”

Israel was behind terror attacks in France "to realize the myth of the 'Jewishness of Israel'" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 15, 2015
On Jan. 7, 2015, Muslim terrorists Cherif and Said Kouachi carried out a shooting attack at the Paris office of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. 12 people were killed in the attack, which was a response to cartoons the magazine published about Islam's Prophet Muhammad. On Jan. 8, in a connected attack, Muslim terrorist Amely Coulibaly shot and killed a policewoman in Paris and on Jan. 9, he shot and killed 4 Jewish shoppers at a Paris kosher supermarket.
While Abbas officially condemned the terror attacks in France, PMW has documented different PA reactions to the attacks. Some have condemned them while at the same time condemning Charlie Hebdo for mocking Islam's Prophet Muhammad. Others have compared the terror attacks in France to Israeli "terrorism" against Palestinians, and some have even claimed that Israel was behind the attacks.
Op-ed by Muwaffaq Matar, regular columnist for the official PA daily:
     “[Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu, together with [other] Israeli leaders, is now walking in the footsteps of the first leaders of the Zionist project, who invented, created and funded the terror against the Jews in Europe, particularly in Germany, and in the Arab world... Over the next few days, the death of the officer in charge of investigating the attacks of the terrorists, who perpetrated crimes against humanity, against the French journalists and citizens, may well be revealed to have been murder, rather than suicide – for he had [discovered] the first threads of the plot leading back to Netanyahu’s Mossad (Israeli Secret Intelligence Service) - [Netanyahu] who wishes to realize the myth of the “Jewishness of Israel” even at the expense of new victims among the citizens of European countries...

In his speech, Sabri, the imam and preacher of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the head of the Supreme Muslim Council, addressed the fact that the multiplying dangers are occurring parallel to the Judaization of the holy places in Jerusalem, as the Arab countries are busy with their internal conflicts. He noted that the occupation has targeted these holy places because they link the world’s Muslims and Christians to the land of Palestine. In addition, he emphasized that history bears witness to the fact that there are no historic Jewish landmarks [in Palestine], and that they [Israel] invent and falsify history through the construction of synagogues.”

There are no archeological findings from the First or Second Temple, and this site is the Noble Sanctuary (i.e., the Temple Mount), and its history is known and its archeological remains exist to this day. Inside it is the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock, and there is nothing Jewish above it, below it, or around it.
There were Jews, and their existence cannot be denied. However, there were no kingdoms, and they left no archeological remains of houses of worship, royal castles, plazas, statues, or other archaeological remains of kingdoms.”
Fatah official: We will never recognize Israel as a Jewish state because it would “cancel our [Palestinian] narrative, our history and our religion” 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Dec. 2, 2014
Official PA TV program The State of Politics hosted Fatah Central Committee member Saeb Erekat.
Saeb Erekat
: “In brief, we cannot accept the Jewish state – Israel as a Jewish state – not today, not tomorrow and not in a hundred years, because whoever accepts Israel as a Jewish state agrees to change his history, his narrative and even his religion. I understand that the State of Israel exists and that we have recognized it. In 1993, there was a mutual recognition. For Israel to come and demand of the Palestinians that they recognize Israel as a Jewish state – what do they want with this? They want us to tell them: ‘Your narrative is true and we, Arabs, are foreigners in this land, and so we will cancel our narrative, our history and our religion.’”
Official PA TV host: “And to confirm that this is a land without a people for a people without a land.”
Saeb Erekat: “Exactly. This will never happen! This is wickedness. This is not the refugee issue or the issue of the 1948 Arabs (i.e., Israeli Arabs). This issue regards our existence, culture, and religion. It is therefore inconceivable that any Palestinian should ever agree that Israel become a Jewish state, for by doing so he would be accepting the Israeli narrative and erasing his own.”

We should not be ashamed to inculcate this belief, since it has been scientifically and historically proven, despite the political and realistic understanding that, through the two-state solution, we will divide our homeland and country between us and them (or [have] it as one unit within a single democratic state)… It is they who are attempting to lie by calling the Palestinian [West] Bank by the Yemenite name of ‘Judea and Samaria,’ and by claiming that Yemenite ‘Jerusalem’ (present-day Al-Quds [the Arab name for Jerusalem]) is theirs!”

     “The Jewish State did not actually exist in the long historic sense as the Kingdom of Judah, the location of which I do not know; and if it did exist, it was [only] for a limited period. The Jewish Khazars had a state, which was the accidental result of the encounter between two cultures – Byzantine Christianity and the Islamic Abbasids. After a consultation between their elders, the Khazar tribes decided to adopt a different religion, in order to be able to live peacefully with their Muslim and Christian neighbors – for had they adopted Islam, this would have meant war with Christianity, while had they converted to Christianity, it would have spelt war with Islam. Thus, the Khazar state was created out of a conflict between two religions, and it quickly collapsed, while the Khazar Jews scattered throughout Central Asia. The majority of the Jews of Israel are their descendants, and they have no historic connection to this land [Palestine/Israel].”

PA daily op-ed: Arab Canaanites are ancestors of the Palestinians, and the history of “Palestine” is “purely Arab and Islamic” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Nov. 23, 2014
Op-ed by Fatah Revolutionary Council member Bakr Abu Bakr, regular columnist for the official PA daily:
     “Should we strive for the militant way of thinking, according to which we cannot relinquish even a single grain of [our] demands or of Palestinian land, on which no non-Arab race has ever tread without being driven out? Palestine was never the cradle of any of the prophets of Israel (the extinct Yemenite Arab tribe, to which the Jews living in Palestine today bear no relation) [parenthesis in source], nor did it ever serve as the setting for any temple or the other Biblical myths. How will we correct history and turn it [Palestine] into clear fact? Will we bear on our shoulders today the trust of the Arab, Islamic and Christian [character] of Palestine through the power of thought, history, facts and the true scientific narrative versus the false Israeli narrative, which is full of fairy tales? ... We are at the beginning of the path started by the founder of the Palestinian state in the 18th century, Daher Al-Omar Al-Zaidani, followed by Yasser Arafat, and the Arab Canaanites and purely Arab and Islamic history that preceded them.”

Note: Daher Al-Omar Al-Zaidani, an Arab native of Ottoman-controlled Galilee, was the independent ruler of Northern Palestine in the mid-18th century. Al-Omar founded the modern city of Haifa and fortified numerous cities, creating – with foreign assistance – an autonomous territory that was legitimized by the Ottoman authorities, who awarded him the title of “Sheikh of the Galilee”. Remembered for his relatively enlightened economic policies and tolerance toward Jews and Christians, Al-Omar is often cited as a pioneer of Arab liberation from foreign occupation and – by some contemporary authors – as a forerunner of Palestinian nationalism.
