     “[PA] Minister of Religious Affairs Sheikh Yusuf Ida'is condemned the fact that the occupation dug a pit in ‘Bab Al-Ghar’ near the Saladin Al-Ayyubi’s pulpit at the Ibrahimi Mosque (i.e., Cave of the Patriarchs) in Hebron. In an announcement to the press yesterday [April 9, 2015] Ida’is said that this step came as part of explicit violations and acts of aggression against the Ibrahimi Mosque, and increasing and intensive attempts to seize it and to distort the conclusive facts of the Islamic character of the place.”
Fatah leader: Israelis "are strangers to this land both now and historically-speaking" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Mar. 29, 2015
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...

Al-Aqsa Mosque preacher: “History bears witness to the fact that there are no historic Jewish landmarks [in Palestine]”

     “The education administration in the Bethlehem district, together with the Al-Dawha municipality, organized a conference with the title, ‘The Future of the Islamic and Christian Holy Places in Jerusalem’ in the city of Al-Dawha, with the participation of [Head of the Palestinian Organization of Clerics and Disseminators of Islam and former Mufti of Jerusalem] Sheikh Dr. Ikrima Sabri, Archbishop Atallah Hanna and [advisor to Mahmoud Abbas on Jerusalem Affairs] attorney Ahmed Al-Ruweidi …
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.”
Op-ed denies Jewish kingdoms or Temples ever existed: "It is all a myth"

Excerpt of op-ed by Jihad Al-Khazen printed in the London daily Al-Hayat and reprinted in the official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida
     “It is all a myth. I have repeatedly said and I say today that there are no archeological remnants of Jewish kingdoms or kings in our land. 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!”
PA daily: Israelis “have no historic connection to this land”

     “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.

Op-ed by Fatah Revolutionary Council member Bakr Abu Bakr, regular columnist for official PA daily:
     “[PA Chairman] Mahmoud Abbas has lit a new fire in ‘Israel’s’ front yard, Jerusalem, beginning with his statements about the youth Muhammad Abu Khdeir who was murdered, [being] burned to death, to his [Abbas’] ongoing calls to wage Ribat (i.e., religious war over land claimed to be Islamic) at the Al-Aqsa Mosque. This Mosque emphasizes to everyone, even to all the short-sighted, that the [sense of] belonging and connection to this city and this land rejects the lies of those who go by the Bible [claiming] the alleged Temple [existed] in Jerusalem. The ancient tribe of the Israelites never set foot in this city, and the present-day Israelis have no connection to it, except through their borrowed name. The temple they refer to – that is, the house of worship of the Arab Israelites who have since disappeared – was far away in their land, as has been noted by scientists – including Israeli archeologists, who have not found a single stone that could speak in the name of the ancient Israelis… Interestingly, every false prophet has a god like him, and the god of real extremism here was not IS, Al-Qaida, [Jabhat] Al-Nusra or the supporters of Shari’ah, but the American government – as [National Security Advisor to President Jimmy Carter Zbigniew] Brzezinski announced in 1977, that political Islam should be used in a way that serves US interests.”
PA TV libel: Israel “implant[s] fake Jewish graves” in Jerusalem “to support… [their] fake Judaization stories” 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Oct. 27, 2014
Official PA TV report alleging that Israel has been placing fake graves in the Silwan neighborhood of East Jerusalem (near the site of the ancient Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives):
Official PA TV reporter: “The list of the means the occupation [uses] to Judaize the Holy City is long. It includes implanting fake Jewish graves in the land of the [Arab] residents of Jerusalem, in an attempt to create props and décor to support [their] false claims and fake Judaization stories about this land. Here, in the Wadi Al-Rababa neighborhood of Silwan, north of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the occupation began implanting, three years ago, dozens of fake graves in an area of over 60 dunams – just as it had done in other neighborhoods, where it implanted thousands of fake graves.
Mustafa Abu Zahra, head of the Committee for the Maintenance of Muslim Cemeteries in Jerusalem: “Israel is still falsifying its history and the facts, and places fake graves on the ground. It digs ditches, pours concrete over them, then lays a stone on top and covers it with dirt to make it look hundreds or thousands of years old.”
Official PA TV reporter: “The occupation brought new stones and inscribed Hebrew names on them. It claims these graves are thousands of years old, even though the reinforced concrete is new and the residents of this area have witnessed this crime of forgery… The occupation is Judaizing Jerusalem like an octopus. Here it implants graves, there settlement nests – in an attempt to prove its [longtime] presence on this land. Being a forgery, it is bound to fail.”

Op-ed by Fatah Revolutionary Council member Bakr Abu Bakr, regular columnist for official PA daily:
“Most, if not all Israeli politicians and writers… view the President’s [Mahmoud Abbas’] intellectual and cultural activity towards refuting the false Israeli narrative regarding their historic right to Palestine and Jerusalem as terrorism, falsification and Antisemitism – [areas] in which they themselves have specialized throughout history. [Political advisor to Benjamin Netanyahu] Dore Gold’s reaction to statements made by the President, [senior PA leader] Dr. Nabil Shaath and [Fatah Central Committee member] Saeb Erekat, as well as his linking them to President [Yasser] Arafat’s denial of the existence of what they call the ‘Temple’ in Jerusalem, form part of the Israeli fear, which borders on horror, of any Palestinian action not in line with their goals and political, intellectual or historical lies (the falsity of which has been proven by modern archeology and research) [parenthesis in source]… The Israeli political leadership’s exaggerated use of ideology, culture and history is proof of [its] political and legal bankruptcy, designed to conceal its failure on the political and public relations level, as well as on the ground. Those who fail have no choice but to use false history to blind the nation, to prove what has already been scientifically shown – today, and not yesterday – to be lies and nonsense: that Israel, the extinct Yemenite tribe, with all its kings and people, was never present in Palestine, but only in its original environment. Furthermore, the Jews of today, who originate from the area of the Caspian Sea and the Black Sea, have no connection with the historical stories of the Bible.”

Excerpt of op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, in his regular column in the official PA daily
     “Historically, Israel and those who stand behind it were a seed for the growth of all the Takfir (i.e., the act of accusing other Muslims of heresy) streams, and directly contributed to the creation of the appropriate ground for the horizontal and vertical spread of these organizations. Despite the fact that the Muslim Brotherhood was established before the establishment of the State of Israel, there was a deep connection between its establishment in 1928, and its adoption by Britain, the state that received the Palestinian mandate, and the plan for the dismantlement of the Arab region. The goals of this plan were primarily to establish what was created by the Sykes-Picot Agreement of 1916… and that the Muslim Brotherhood would assist in the birth of the Hebrew state. This was as this organization, depending on its religious aspect, its battle with the nation state, its refusal to cooperate with the national liberal and left-wing political forces, and its adoption of the Islamic Caliphate option, created the right environment for the establishment of a ‘homeland’ for the Jews in Palestine…
The integration between the Western colonialism and the establishment of the Muslim Brotherhood organization created the foundations for the birth of the Israeli ethnic cleansing state in 1948, on the ruins of the Nakba (i.e., “the catastrophe,” Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel) of the Arab Palestinian people..."

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.
