PA foreign minister: Israel is trying to falsify history, destroy Palestinian heritage, who have been in land for 10,000 years

Headline: “Al-Malki: Palestine is the cradle of culture and our people’s history is engraved on the walls of Jerusalem”

“[PA] Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Riyad Al-Malki said that ‘Palestine is the cradle of culture and religions, and part of our Palestinian people's past, heritage, and history is engraved on the walls of its capital Jerusalem – this heritage that Israel, the occupying power, is working to destroy and control, and [it is working] to falsify the history that is witness to our people’s rootedness in its land for more than 10,000 years, which refutes the Israeli occupation’s settlement colonialism narrative.’

He explained yesterday, Friday [Nov. 15, 2019], in his speech during the 40th session of the UNESCO (UN Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization) general conference, that ‘UNESCO and those who believe in its principles speak one language, which the tyrants and military leaders of wars and colonialism do not understand; we speak with you in the language of science, culture, and peace; the language of arts, principles, and rights.’”
