Miraculous Palestinian history: “We [Palestinians] defeated the Hyksos, the Romans, the Greeks, the Persians, the Tatars, and the Pharaohs,” and will defeat Israel as well

  • PA PM’s lies used as basis for hate ideology: “We defeated the Hyksos, the Romans, the Greeks, the Persians, the Tatars, and the Pharaohs. We have defeated all the invaders who passed through the land of Palestine. On behalf of the Martyrs we will defeat this hated occupation [Israel] that will leave our land.”

The Palestinian Authority has written a fictitious history for itself that is both comical and dangerous. The PA claims Palestinians to be distinct in the annals of history, being the only people to have defeated many of the greatest empires. Incredibly, the Romans, Greeks, Persians, Pharaohs, Hyksos and Tatars, all were defeated by the Palestinians, according to Prime Minister Muhammad Shtayyeh speaking in the name of Mahmoud Abbas, at the Palestinian Martyrs’ Day ceremony in Ramallah.

Given that only last century after the creation of the State of Israel did some Arabs of the land of Israel adopt a Palestinian identity, the PA’s Prime Minister’s fantasy could be dismissed as laughable and irrelevant. However, the continuation of the PM’s words, using this fantasy history to justify his call to fight to destroy Israel, shows how dangerous even a lie can be:

“We have defeated all the invaders who passed through the land of Palestine. On behalf of the Martyrs we will defeat this hated occupation [Israel] that will leave our land.”

 Tragically, this fictitious history and its terror demands are being passed on to Palestinian youth. As Palestinian Media Watch recently exposed in its report on Fatah’s Waed children’s educational magazine for ages 6-15, the identical messages are taught although the empires that the Palestinians are said to have defeated change. Palestinian children are taught that they defeated the “Babylonians, the Persians, the Samaritans, the Assyrians, the Hyksos, the Hittites, the Pharaohs, and the Hebrews,” and this proves they will likewise defeat and destroy Israel:

The occupation [Israel] will cease to exist just as what was before it ceased to exist. As we said, Palestine underwent many invasions that coveted it. All of the invaders were defeated, and Palestine returned to be free and Arab.”

The following chart shows how the PA creates a vision for Israel's destruction based on this false history and its transmission to the next generation of Palestinian children:

“We are the people of the land and the children of its soil…

We have defeated the Hyksos, the Romans, the Greeks, the Persians, the Tatars, and the Pharaohs.

 

 

We have defeated all the invaders who passed through the land of Palestine. On behalf of the Martyrs we will defeat this hated occupation [Israel] that will leave our land.”   

“The Canaanite Arabs settled the land of Palestine…

Palestine underwent dozens of invasions... Babylonians, the Persians, the Samaritans, the Assyrians, the Hyksos, the Hittites, the Pharaohs, and the Hebrews…

One hundred years ago the British invaded it… In the end, Palestine fell under the Zionist occupation, which continues to this very day…

The occupation [Israel] will cease to exist just as what was before it ceased to exist. As we said, Palestine underwent many invasions that coveted it. All of the invaders were defeated, and Palestine returned to be free and Arab.”
