Libel: “Stolen” culture – Israel steals 4,000-year-old Palestinian heritage to present it as Jewish

Visual: A video is shown from the campaign, which presents Israelis as copying and adopting Palestinian cultural elements after which the word “stolen” appears in red with their alleged Palestinian inspiration.

Falastini TV Director Hisham Jaber: “The campaign is intended to preserve the Palestinian heritage that is being subjected to the threat of theft. The occupation is always attempting to attribute to itself this beautiful heritage that is thousands of years old in order to say: “I am in this land,” while knowing that this Palestinian cultural element, the Palestinian clothing, is approximately 4,000 years old and perhaps more (sic.) ... We are a people that is well-rooted in this land, and our presence is more than 4,000 or 5,000 years old.”
