Op-ed in official PA daily: 4,000 years of Jewish history in Israel are “lies,” written by Caucasian “thieves,” “there is no archeological remnant of any Jewish kingdom in Palestine”

Headline: “Likud lies that contradict the biblical text”
Excerpt of op-ed by Jihad Al-Khazen in the London-based Al-Hayat newspaper.
“I have read the words of an author of the [Israeli center-right political party] Likud, saying that Jews have a 4,000 year history on our land. Those are 4,000 years of lies, as there is no archeological remnant of any Jewish kingdom in Palestine (or Egypt or the Arabian Peninsula [parentheses in source]. This is made-up history, written by thieves who fled the Caucasus mountains into Eastern and then Central Europe, fleeing death and claiming to be Jews. All of this is a lie, and we are the truth.”
