Op-ed in official PA daily: Jesus “was the first Palestinian Martyr, who was crucified by the Jews”

Excerpt of op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, regular columnist for the official PA daily

: “One homeland, one people”
“The demographic composition of the Palestinian Arab people cannot be envisioned without the presence of the Christian people. As [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas said: ‘The Palestinian Christians are the salt of the earth,’ and indeed as I have said in a number of relevant articles – Jesus, Issa son of Maryam, peace be upon him, was the first Palestinian Martyr (Shahid), who was crucified by the Jews, or they think they crucified him. He was born to a Palestinian mother and grew up in Palestine.”
