PA spreads false narrative denying Jewish connection to the land
Excerpt of a poem by Abu Muhammad Al-Haifawi
Headline: “Ask who you are”
“For the second time
And the third
And the tenth
And the twentieth –
Who are we and who are you?
History has told and we have said
That we are the people of giants
We are a people that is standing firm
And carrying out Ribat (i.e., religious conflict over land claimed to be Islamic)…
Who are you (i.e., Israelis/Jews)? And where are you from?
You are a mixed multitude from the colonialist lands,
From gentiles and up to the barbaric Khazars(sic., genetic research has conclusively proven modern Jews share a common origin in Israel and are not the descendants of Khazars)
Shame and remorse on you
On the day when remorse will no longer help,
And we have the day of victory,
And we have the goodness of certain knowledge.
Do not ask who we are,
Rather ask who you are.”
