PA daily columnist claims the Palestinian people lived in Palestine even before the Bible

Member of Fatah Revolutionary Council and PA daily regular Columnist Bakr Abu Bakr responds to statement by Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Zahar 'who claimed that he restored the identity of the Palestinian people in 2006':
"Just as his [Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Zahar’s] words are not supported by facts… so all the invasions and occupations have not succeeded in cancelling the 'identity' of the Palestinian people and its image, which has existed for thousands of years, in the geographical area known as Palestine, [since] even before the Bible."
