Rewriting history
Palestinian history fabricated
Rewriting history
Rewriting the history of the Land of Israel in order to deny Israel's right to exist is central to Palestinian Authority (PA) policy. Long before it started the PA terror campaign (the "Intifada," 2000-2005), the PA was fighting a history war – erasing Jewish history and replacing it with a fabricated Palestinian history. This rewriting has two central goals:
1- Erase the Jewish nation's 3,000 year history in the Land of Israel;
2- Invent ancient Palestinian, Muslim and Arab histories in the land.

The goal of this historical revision as a political strategy was first expressed publicly at a conference of Palestinian historians in 1998, when rewriting history was linked to the political goal of denying Israel's right to exist:
"Dr. Yussuf Alzamili [Chairman History Department, Khan Yunis Educational College] called on all universities and colleges to write the history of Palestine and to guard it, and not to enable the [foreign] implants and enemies to distort it or to legitimize the existence of Jews on this land... [History lecturer Abu Amar] clarified that there is no connection between the ancient generation of Jews and the new generation." [Al-Ayyam, Dec. 4, 1998].
 
Erasing Jewish history in the land of Israel is followed by the PA’s invention of ancient and modern histories that support its political ideology and claim to the land of Israel. The Holocaust and other aspects of Jewish history are alternately denied, downplayed or distorted. Another distortion is to hide from Palestinians that Jesus was a Jew who lived in the Land of Judea/Israel. PA leaders repeatedly define Jesus as a Palestinian who preached Islam, thus denying not only Jewish history, but also the history and legitimacy of Christianity.

Citing numerous examples, this section will document that these and other historical revisions are an integral part of Palestinian policy and are used to create political ideology.
Palestinian history fabricated
Having erased Jewish history, the PA fills the historical void by fabricating the ancient histories of Palestinians, Arabs and Muslims. PA academics claim that Palestinians, Arabs and Muslims all populated the Land of Israel in Biblical times and even earlier. These fictions are all historically impossible, as the name “Palestine" as a replacement for the Land of Judea/Israel was coined by Rome only in 136 C.E., Islam was established only in 610 C.E., and Arabs first arrived in Israel with the Muslim invasion in 637 C.E.

Inventing thousands of years of history when none existed is accomplished through numerous distortions and lies, including changing the Biblical Canaanites into Arabs, changing Biblical Israelis, Judeans and Hebrews into Arabs and Muslims, changing the religion preached by Moses from Judaism into Islam, and changing Jesus into a Palestinian who preached Islam and not Christianity.

This so-called documentary depicting Biblical Canaanites as Arabs, broadcast many times on PA TV, is one example of this PA historical revision.
"The Arab Canaanites established ports on the coast of Canaan, known today as Palestine. Palestine was attacked by invaders, but its Arab Canaanite features withstood attempts to change them. Jaffa was one of the cities whose Canaanite origins the invaders failed to erase." [PA TV, repeatedly, 2005-2007.]
 
The documentary further invents history by indicating visually that the victims of the Roman invasion were Arabs, not the Jewish kingdom of Judea.
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.”‎

Palestinian national committee: Lifta nature reserve is not an Israeli site, must preserve the "Canaanite heritage village" and its "Palestinian identity" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 21, 2015
Headline: “Discussion on dealing with the occupation’s plan to list the village of Lifta as an Israeli site”
     “The Palestinian National Committee for Education, Culture, and Sciences deliberated yesterday [May 20, 2015] over ways to oppose the Israeli occupation authorities’ plans to register the village of Lifta on the world heritage sites list as an Israeli heritage site…
Secretary-General of the Palestinian National Committee for Education, Culture, and Sciences Murad Al-Sudani praised the role of the head of the Lifta Association and its members in preserving their Canaanite heritage village and their Palestinian identity, and also praised them for their resistance to the occupation’s plans, whose goal is to destroy the village and Israelize it.”

Lifta was an Arab village near the western entrance to Jerusalem. During the War of Independence in 1948, the Palestinian residents deserted their homes, most of which remained empty for many years. In the 1980s the site was declared an Israeli nature reserve.
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."

PA daily op-ed: Palestinians are "the first people in the history of mankind" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 18, 2015
Headline: “The memory of the Nakba is itself a rebellion”
Excerpt from article by Yahya Rabah, regular columnist for the official PA daily and member of the Fatah Leadership Committee in Gaza
     “I feel great pride in being a Palestinian. I belong to the people with the most just cause in the history of mankind, and the one in which the injustice is the clearest. Is there any greater injustice than our people suffering these 67 years from a tragic sin… that is the Nakba (i.e., “the catastrophe,” the Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel), in its deep and comprehensive meaning, when the strongest of the strong in the world conspired in order to occupy the homeland of the first people in the history of mankind.”
Prehistoric man was Palestinian 
Source: Al-Asima, bi-weekly distributed with official PA daily, Feb. 25, 2015
     “The study of the prehistoric period is based on archeological remains from the caves of Palestine. The bones of the early Palestinian man found there prove that he was walking upright… During the New Stone Age (5,000-8,000 BCE) [parenthesis in source], the Palestinians discovered agriculture and built the town of Jericho, the most ancient city humanity has known, and domesticated animals.”

Note: The PA designation of early man as Palestinian is an anachronism. After the Jewish revolt was put ‎down in 135 CE, the Romans changed the name of Judea/Israel to “Palaestina” to punish the Jewish ‎nation. Until the creation of the State of Israel, all residents of the region, including Jews, were identified ‎as Palestinians. According to the PA daily, the Arab population in the region did not have a Palestinian ‎identity when Fatah was created in 1965, but years of Fatah’s terror, which it refers to as “military ‎actions,” is what created the current Palestinian Arab identity. [Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Feb. ‎‎23, 2005, cited in Deception: Betraying the Peace Process, p. 21-22]‎

Al-Asima is distributed with the official Palestinian Authority daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida and lists as its "general supervisor" Othman Abu Gharbieh, who is a member of Fatah's Central Committee and the Secretary General of the Popular National Conference of Jerusalem, the PLO institution that publishes this bi-weekly.
Official PA daily: Ancient Arab tribes were "Palestinian"

Headline: “Arabe – palaces, stories, and history”
     “The village of Arabe is located on the northern side of the Nablus mountains, south west of the city of Jenin, which is located behind it and 12 kilometers from it…
The history of the building of the two palaces (i.e., the palaces of Abd Al-Qadir Abd Al-Hadi and Hussein Abd Al-Hadi) goes back to the 19th century, and they are a part of the old city of Arabe. At the moment it is possible to visit both of these monuments, which were connected to the rise of the local feudal class at the time and the establishment of the [local] leadership against the central Ottoman rule. These leaders had an influential role in Palestinian history, and particularly during the civil war that Palestine experienced in the 19th century between the Qays and Yaman parties (i.e., ancient Arab tribes – the Qays originating in the northern Arabian Peninsula, and the Yaman in the southern Arabian Peninsula), in which the Muslim, Christian, and Druze Palestinians were divided by their tribal origin – Qays or Yaman.”
Official PA daily reports on discovery of "Palestinian" tomb from 1600 BCE

     "In a corner of the Palestinian museum in Jerusalem, a Palestinian family preserved itself for more than 3,000 years, despite the invasions and calamities that Palestine experienced.
The subject of discussion is a tomb structure discovered in Jericho, and relocated to the museum in the 1950s…
In the 1950s Kathleen Kenyon, an archeologist characterized by great impartiality, headed the excavations at Tell es-Sultan in Jericho. Among the discoveries found were graves from the Middle Bronze Age, including the aforementioned tomb, which was dated to approximately the Hyksos period, in other words approximately 1,600 BCE, and was reassembled in the museum in the same state in which it was found."
PA TV News distorts history: Palestinians fought the Romans in ancient times 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Dec. 27, 2014


PA TV reporter:
"The settlers invaded an ancient tomb... an ancient rock-cut cave built by the Greeks. The Palestinian rebels used it as a hideout during their war against the Romans... Through recurring invasions and by holding Talmudic ceremonies (i.e., Jewish prayers) in ancient tombs, the occupation is trying to manufacture a new history that legitimizes its occupation."

Note: The Jews, not Palestinians, fought the Roman Empire in Judea from 66-73 and again from 132-135CE. After the Jews were defeated, the Romans changed the name of the region from Judea/Israel to Palaestina to punish the Jewish nation for their unsuccessful rebellion. The claim that "Palestinians" fought the Romans is historically inaccurate, as "Palestinians/Palestine" did not yet exist.

Official PA TV program For You, on jailed terrorist Ahmad Othman Kafina from Nablus

Official PA TV host: “Our episode today is with the family of prisoner Ahmad Othman Kafina, who has been imprisoned for 9 years. The settlements that surround his village of Sawiya from every side and his observation of the injustice [of the occupation] strengthened his national zealousness, which pressed him to carry out a self-sacrifice operation (i.e., terror attack) in the occupied Interior (i.e., Palestinian term for Israel). This operation caused him to be imprisoned by those who have no mercy in their hearts.” …
Host: “Did you notice a change in him? Did you anticipate that he would carry out a self-sacrifice operation?”
Ahmad Kafina’s brother Samih Othman Kafina: “No, but at the same time I am proud of what he did. I tell you as his older brother and as his father (as an older brother he apparently views him as a son –Ed.) that I am proud of how my son is a hero and carried out this kind of resistance. I do not regret it.” …
Voiceover by host: “We will die so that the homeland will live, and we will be imprisoned in the name of freedom and in the name of the establishment of the Palestinian state whose capital is Jerusalem.”

Ahmad Othman Kafina – Palestinian Fatah-affiliated terrorist who murdered Israeli Kinneret Ben Shalom Hajbi, and wounded 4 others in a stabbing attack on a taxi shuttle van from Petah Tikva to Tel Aviv on Feb. 5, 2006. After boarding the van Kafina pulled out a knife and began stabbing passengers. Kafina then pursued passengers who fled the van until he was subdued by an Israeli security guard and an Israeli civilian. Under investigation Kafina said that he had come to Petah Tikva to kill Jews. Kafina is serving 1 life sentence.
Official PA daily op-ed: "Palestine was called Palestine even before Abraham"

Headline: “Do not Islamize the [Palestinian] issue”
Excerpt of op-ed by Hanan Bakir, regular columnist for the official PA daily
     “Several years ago head of the Jewish Association in Norway Rolf Kirschner wrote an article in which he claimed that Palestine or the Palestinians did not exist in history, and that this is the historical Land of Israel, and we are nothing but groups that harass this state!
I answered him in an article that did not go near religion; I just gathered for him all the verses in the holy book (i.e., the Bible) that note Palestine and the land of the Palestinians. [I said] that their God turned to them only as strangers in the land of Palestine, and said to them ‘Be strangers in the land of the Palestinians’ (sic., see note below). I argued with him through history and his holy book! I asked the editor in chief to send him an invitation to a debate on the history of the area and its residents, in any media outlet he wished, and he refused. I argued with the journalist with historical facts, and he answered: ‘In any case it is no longer your land, and you need to forget it!’
Palestine was called Palestine even before Abraham, the father of the three religions. So why do you, some of my people, want to distort our history, so that it will be less than 2,000 years old?”

The quote: “Be strangers in the land of the Palestinians” is an apparent misappropriation of the medieval Jewish scholar Ramban’s commentary to Genesis 26:2, in which he explains that God said to Isaac: “Dwell now in this land, in the land of the Philistines, for I will give it to you and your seed.”

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.
