Rewriting history
Rewriting the history of the Land of Israel in order to deny Israel's right to exist is central to Palestinian Authority (PA) policy. Long before it started the PA terror campaign (the "Intifada," 2000-2005), the PA was fighting a history war – erasing Jewish history and replacing it with a fabricated Palestinian history. This rewriting has two central goals:
1- Erase the Jewish nation's 3,000 year history in the Land of Israel;
2- Invent ancient Palestinian, Muslim and Arab histories in the land.

The goal of this historical revision as a political strategy was first expressed publicly at a conference of Palestinian historians in 1998, when rewriting history was linked to the political goal of denying Israel's right to exist:
"Dr. Yussuf Alzamili [Chairman History Department, Khan Yunis Educational College] called on all universities and colleges to write the history of Palestine and to guard it, and not to enable the [foreign] implants and enemies to distort it or to legitimize the existence of Jews on this land... [History lecturer Abu Amar] clarified that there is no connection between the ancient generation of Jews and the new generation." [Al-Ayyam, Dec. 4, 1998].
 
Erasing Jewish history in the land of Israel is followed by the PA’s invention of ancient and modern histories that support its political ideology and claim to the land of Israel. The Holocaust and other aspects of Jewish history are alternately denied, downplayed or distorted. Another distortion is to hide from Palestinians that Jesus was a Jew who lived in the Land of Judea/Israel. PA leaders repeatedly define Jesus as a Palestinian who preached Islam, thus denying not only Jewish history, but also the history and legitimacy of Christianity.

Citing numerous examples, this section will document that these and other historical revisions are an integral part of Palestinian policy and are used to create political ideology.
Jewish history rewritten
Denial of 3,000 years of Jewish history in the land of Israel is the foundation of all PA political ideology. To accomplish this, the PA systematically distorts both ancient and modern history, ignoring both archeology and historical documentation, and replaces them with an odious fictitious history. The new history demonizes Jews, accusing them of having been evil and destructive throughout history, and thereby triggering non-Jews to justifiably hate, persecute and expel them. This rewriting forms the basis for the Palestinian Authority denial of Israel’s right to exist.

1- Jewish history in Land of Israel erased
View All
Chronologically


Denial the Jewish history and connection to the Land of Israel has been policy since the establishment of the Palestinian Authority.
This video is a recent example of a PA academic, denying the existence of thousands of Hebrew language coins, Hebrew texts and Hebrew Bullas (seals) carrying biblical names that that have been found in the Land of Israel.

Lecturer, Urban Planning, Bir-Zeit University, Dr. Jamal Amar
:
"There is a view that where it [the Dome of the Rock] stands was the Holy of Holies of the fictitious Temple – and by the way, that is merely an illusion. There is no remnant of it. It's a myth. A story of no value, like the Arabian Nights, and other legends… Only in Palestine… [after] 60 years of digging, and they've found nothing at all. Not a water jug, not a coin, not any earthen vessel, no bronze weapons, no piece of metal, absolutely nothing of this myth, because it's a myth and a lie. This digging has not left a single meter [unturned], but it has achieved absolutely nothing.” [PATV, June 23, 2009]
Official PA daily: Israel is "so-called 'Israel'... the occupation state... the Zionist entity"

      “On the day following the declaration of the establishment of the occupation state (the so-called ‘Israel’) [all parentheses in source], armies from Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon and Iraq, together with other Arab fighters and Palestinian fighters (68.000 Jihad fighters) opened an all-out war against the Zionist entity (90.000 terrorists). Thereafter, the conflict became an international conflict… The Zionist enemy conquered all of Palestine except the West Bank which was annexed to Jordan, and the Gaza Strip which was annexed to Egypt.”

The Palestinians, “[Jesus’] people”, suffer “from the Zionist Jews” the same way he did  
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 16, 2015
Op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, columnist for official PA daily
     “Palestine, the first sanctified land, that promised the oppressed and the defeated liberty, independence and eternal co-existence between human beings, all while carrying the dream of hope for rebirth, will be baptized on May 17, 2015, when it is recognized by the Vatican State. This means recognition of the political rights of the Arab Palestinian nation, support of the two-state option within the borders of June 4, 1967. [it is also] an apology to the messenger of peace and love, Jesus, may he rest in peace, who suffered from the injustice of the first Jews… in the same way his people, the Palestinians, have suffered from the Zionist Jews in the past and in the present… for the delay in doing them [the Palestinians] justice through restoring some of their rights.”

2- Jerusalem's Temple/Jewish history denied
View All
Chronologically


Denial of the Jewish history in Jerusalem and the existence of the Jewish Temple is a central component PA political ideology. This denial started with Yasser Arafat and continues to be reiterated by academics, politicians and religious leaders. The PA systematically distorts the ancient history of Jerusalem, ignoring the vast historical documentation and thousands of archeological finds related to Jewish history that have been found in Jerusalem.

This music video, broadcast regularly on PA TV through 2008 and 2009, denies any historical connection between the Jewish people and Jerusalem, repeats the libel that Israel is planning to destroy the Al-Aqsa mosque and calls on Allah to protect the mosque. “Oh [Sons of] Zion, no matter how much you dig and no matter how much you destroy, your imaginary Temple will not come into being… [Allah protect Al-Aqsa] from every thief and every oppressor.”

Full text: “Al-Aqsa [Mosque] is ours, Oh Muslims, Al-Aqsa is ours, our Al-Aqsa screams and shouts, Al-Aqsa is ours. Oh Arabs and Muslims, no, no, Al-Aqsa is ours. Oh [Sons of] Zion, no matter how much you dig and no matter how much you destroy, your imaginary Temple will not come into being… My land, my Jerusalem, my blood and my honor will not be scorned. Al-Aqsa is ours, how you suffer! How you have bleed for years! How you scream! How you call out to the millions! What are you hoping for, what are you crying for? Saladin [Muslim conqueror of Jerusalem in 1187] ! Al-Aqsa is ours. Oh Allah, protect Al-Aqsa, Oh Allah, Al-Aqsa is ours, [protect Al-Aqsa] from every thief and every oppressor.” [PA TV (Fatah) Sept. 23, 2008 – Oct. 25, 2009]
Official PA TV: Israeli excavations are "evil projects... to achieve... full control over Al-Aqsa" 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, May 9, 2015

PA TV narrator
: "The Jews conquered it [Silwan neighborhood] along with Jerusalem [in 1967]. From then on, there have been plans to Judaize and to erase Arab and Muslim antiquities through tunnel excavations and theft of antiquities and by fabricating a fake Jewish name, such as the 'City of David.'
This is Silwan... Through these evil projects, the Israeli occupation seeks to restore the alleged Kingdom of David and to build his palace there, in order to achieve its evil goal: Full control over the Al-Aqsa Mosque and building the alleged temple in its place."

PA official: Israel plans to turn Jerusalem into "a city with a Jewish character" and place "a copy of the Temple in place of the Al-Aqsa Mosque" 
Source: Dunya Al-Watan (independent Palestinian news agency), May 7, 2015
Headline: “Issa warns of Jerusalem becoming a ‘city with a Jewish character’”
     “Secretary-General of the [PA's] Islamic-Christian Council for Jerusalem and the Holy Places Hana Issa, warned of the occupation entity’s meticulous plan against the occupied city of Jerusalem, particularly the old city and the Al-Aqsa Mosque, aimed at turning [Jerusalem] into a city with a Jewish character, with a copy of the Temple in place of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and of the Holy of Holies (an inner sanctuary within the Temple in Jerusalem. -Ed) in place of the Dome of the Rock.”
“Temple Mount” sign heralds “the impending construction of the alleged Temple on the ruins of Al-Aqsa Mosque” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Mar. 12, 2015
Headline: “Occupation placed sign near a gate of Al-Aqsa with the name ‘Temple Mount’ and destroyed a brick factory in At-Tur.”
     “Teams from the occupation municipality in Jerusalem placed a sign in the Old City, near the Council Gate, one of the main gates of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. The sign bears the names of the places called the ‘Temple Mount,’ alluding to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, in Arabic, Hebrew and English... The [PA’s] Islamic-Christian Council for Jerusalem and the Holy Places said that the sign constitutes a declaration on the part of Israel of the impending construction of the alleged Temple on the ruins of Al-Aqsa. The Council also addressed the Israeli extremist [policy] of establishing facts on the ground through the Judaization of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and by transforming it into a Jewish synagogue, in preparation for establishing the alleged Temple on its ruins.”
