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 kids magazine calls Haifa a Palestinian city, and claims that Palestinians lived there in prehistoric times

Headline: “A city in Palestine – Haifa”
     “A coastal city found in the north of the Palestinian coastal plane and in it a port that overlooks the Mediterranean Sea. Its location is beautiful and charming, and it is surrounded by sea, plain, and mountains. Haifa is an ancient Canaanite city, located on the Carmel mountain, and archeologists have found there archeological remnants of civilizations from all three periods of the ancient Stone Age … Archeologists have found there fossilized skeletons and remnants of the fire used by Palestinians, and they are the oldest remnants of ashes in the Mediterranean area… The city is the center of the district and is the third largest city in Palestine, after Jerusalem and Jaffa (i.e., Tel Aviv-Jaffa)… At the end of the British Mandate there were 20 schools just in Haifa, in which there was remarkable coexistence between the Christians and Muslims. However, the treachery led to the city falling into the hands of Zionist organizations during April 1948.”

Zayzafuna is a PLO magazine for children partially funded by the PA. The magazine, which includes material written by both the magazine’s staff and child readers, represents the values of the educators and serves as a window into the minds of the Palestinian children submitting material to the magazine. Zayzafuna's website states that the magazine's advisory board is comprised of PA officials and educators, including Jihad Zakarneh, PA Deputy Minister of Education, and Abd Al-Hakim Abu Jamous, Head of the Media Department at the PA Ministry of Education. In May 2011, the Deputy Chairman of the Zayzafuna organization Abd Al-Karim Ziyada explained on PA TV that the PA gives "a monthly payment of 10,000 shekels ($2,700) to cover the magazine's [costs]."

Official PA daily gives credence to book claiming Palestinians are natives while acknowledging Hebrews lived in the land temporarily
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Dec. 8, 2015
Headline: “Publication of the book ‘ A Brief History of Palestine’ by Dr. Muhammad Shtayyeh”
     “The Dar Al-Shorok publishing house recently published a book titled ‘ A Brief History of Palestine,’ by Dr. Muhammad Shtayyeh, the head of the [Palestinian] Economic Council for Development and Reconstruction ‘ PEDCAR,’ and a Fatah Central Committee member. The book tells the story of this land in simple language and in a comprehensive manner, and the author moves fluently between the different periods, from the most ancient, through current times. The author begins with the history of Canaanite Palestine, and refers to the tribes and peoples that lived in it, and who lived in coexistence with the inhabitants, such as the Jebusites, the Hyksos, the Hebrews, and the Edomites. Likewise, he continues with the birth of Jesus, the Islamic conquest, the Ottoman period, the development of Zionism, the Nakba of Palestine, and the establishment of the State of Israel. The book clarifies that the original inhabitants of the land of Palestine have always inhabited it, despite the different religions and cultures that came to it [Palestine], and had reciprocal relations with them, while preserving its culture and character, despite mingling with other cultures throughout the years. Likewise, the author proves, by detailing the historical facts, that Palestine was for a long time the target of foreign invasions, which aimed to break the Arab Islamic triangle of Baghdad-Damascus-Cairo, whose unity is a guarantee of Palestine and its inhabitants’ victory.”

       "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.”

They are those who have put down roots in the heart of Jerusalem, and survived throughout all the centuries, and all the dreams of invaders and greedy ones were shattered on their rocks and chests. Colonialism and all invaders and occupiers passed through here, while the Palestinians continued to carry out Ribat (i.e., religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) and stand firm.”

     “During a speech he gave yesterday [Nov. 6, 2015], Friday, at the 38th session of the UNESCO General Conference in Paris, Foreign Minister of the State of Palestine Riyad Al-Malki... stated: ‘I have come to you at a time when my homeland and people are suffering from cruel aggression once again, which harms humans and stones, and does not skip children, elderly, and women; ongoing aggression by Israel, the occupying power, through which it aims to eliminate the presence of Palestinians in the land of their ancestors, where they have been planted for over 10,000 years.’
He called on the member states to fulfill their commitments and implement what was specified in the agreements of UNESCO, including a prohibition to import, export, or transfer ownership of cultural property from the occupied land of Palestine, which the occupation is illegally taking over, and returning it to its land of origin. He added: ‘We will act to bring to justice anyone proven to be involved in trafficking antiquities stolen from Palestine, including countries that agree to these stolen pieces of heritage being displayed in their museums, as happened in the past with the Dead Sea Scrolls, which were stolen in 1967 by the occupation authorities, from the Archaeological Museum of Palestine (i.e., the Rockefeller Archeological Museum in East Jerusalem). Likewise, he condemned any harming of archeological sites in the occupied State of Palestine, and everywhere in the world, including heritage sites in Syria and Iraq.”

Op-ed by Muwaffaq Matar, Fatah Revolutionary Council member and regular columnist for the official PA daily
     “The Palestinian Fida'i’s (self-sacrificing fighter’s) keffiyeh (Arab headdress) came before the appearance of the Palestinian flag as the symbol of the Palestinian fighting for freedom, despite the leadership of the Palestinian revolution’s insistence on the presence of the Palestinian flag as a symbol of the homeland, in other words a symbol of a people with a land and a state. The symbolism of the keffiyeh is not confined only to the period since the outbreak of the Palestinian revolution, but rather it has historical symbolism, being the headdress of the first men of Palestine, who emerged from the womb of the holy land of Palestine from the dawn of human history. Therefore, we are interested in the symbol of the state – the flag – as a means to stop the expansion of the Zionist occupation and settlement project on our land, and we are also interested in the Canaanite keffiyeh as a heritage that is thousands of years old, in order to maintain one of the examples of our historical and natural right to our land, Palestine.”

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."

Prehistoric man was Palestinian

     “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.

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.
