Rewriting history
Jewish history rewritten
Jerusalem's Temple/Jewish history denied
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]
Abbas: Jewish prayer on the Temple Mount is ‎"a red line" that "we cannot possibly ‎accept"‎ 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Aug. 17, 2014
     ‎“President Mahmoud Abbas said Israeli ‎efforts were being made to implement a ‎division according to time [of prayer for ‎Jews and Muslims] in the Noble ‎Sanctuary (i.e., the Temple Mount) of ‎Jerusalem. He emphasized that this was ‎‎‘a red line’ that ‘we cannot possibly ‎accept’.’‎
The President said at the opening of the ‎leadership’s meeting last night [Aug. 16, ‎‎2014] at the Presidential residence in ‎Ramallah: ‘We are telling Israel and the ‎world that the Israeli efforts to implement a ‎division according to time in the Noble ‎Sanctuary of Jerusalem are a red line, and ‎we cannot possibly accept this in any way. ‎We will not accept that Jerusalem remain ‎occupied.’”‎

Note:‎ The “division according to time” refers to a ‎proposed law (May 2013) being reviewed ‎in Israeli Parliament that would allow for ‎both Jews and Muslims to pray on the ‎Temple Mount. The law seeks to ‎implement separate prayer times for ‎Muslims and Jews at the site.‎
PA Mufti praises "the glorious Al-Aqsa Mosque Intifada‎," threatens violence if Jews try to pray at site of "alleged Temple"

Official PA TV News interviewed the PA ‎Mufti of Jerusalem, Sheikh Muhammad ‎Hussein, following a news report stating ‎that Muslims would only be allowed into ‎the Al-Aqsa Mosque on Fridays and ‎Saturdays. The report claimed that this ‎decision was part of an unofficial division ‎of prayer times for Jews and Muslims on ‎the Temple Mount as part of a plan to ‎divide the mosque between Jews and ‎Muslims.‎
PA Mufti of Jerusalem, Sheikh ‎Muhammad Hussein: “I wish to remind ‎‎[any] intelligent person – if there is ‎anyone intelligent in the Israeli ‎government – that [former Israeli Prime ‎Minister Ariel] Sharon’s entering the Al-‎Aqsa Mosque in 2000 triggered the ‎eruption of the glorious Al-Aqsa Mosque ‎Intifada (i.e., PA terror campaign 2000-‎‎2005). Then, the Palestinian people did ‎not remain silent in view of the ‎desecration of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and ‎the Palestinian people will not remain ‎silent, under any circumstances, in view ‎of the division of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, ‎whether according to time or to place. This ‎nation will not suffer for long the dreams, ‎illusions and tales of those in whose ‎minds the alleged Temple lurks – [the ‎Temple which they claim stood] where the ‎Al-Aqsa Mosque stands.”‎

Note:‎ The division according to time or place ‎refers to a proposed law (May 2013) being ‎reviewed in Israeli Parliament that would ‎allow for both Jews and Muslims to pray on ‎the Temple Mount. The law seeks to ‎implement separate prayer times for ‎Muslims and Jews at the site.‎
Official PA TV: Israelis "invaded the holy Mosque" and discussed "the myth and fable of the alleged Temple" 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, June 8, 2014
Official PA TV News on Jewish visits to the Temple Mount:
Official PA TV newsreader: “Our correspondent told us that the [Israeli] settlers invaded the holy [Al-Aqsa] Mosque by means of small groups that entered one after the other and held provoking tours in the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] plaza and its buildings, during which the extremist Glick gave explanations about the myth and fable of the alleged Temple.”

Notes: The PA considers any presence of Jews on the Temple Mount an "invasion." However, all visitors are subject to rigorous checks by Israeli security personnel before being granted access to the Temple Mount.

Rabbi Yehuda Glick is the Chairman of the Temple Mount Heritage Foundation that works to increase awareness of the central place the Temple Mount and the Temple hold in Jewish heritage through educational activities and by encouraging people to visit the Temple Mount. He is also active in the Temple Mount Faithful movement whose goal is to build the Third Temple on the Temple Mount. In addition he is the coordinator of the LIBA initiative - The Jewish Freedom on the Temple Mount initiative whose goal is to obtain freedom and civil rights for Jews on the Temple Mount.
The Israel Police has banned Glick from entering the Temple Mount and has detained him on several occasions for acting in a way that could disrupt order.
Sheikh: "The stones of Jerusalem say to it [Israel], 'You are a foreigner'"

     ‎“The Supreme Muslim Council organized ‎a [protest] vigil and sit-down strike on the ‎‎47th anniversary of the Naksa (i.e., ‘the ‎setback,’ Palestinian term for Israel's ‎victory in the Six Day War) and in support ‎of the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the steps of the ‎Damascus Gate, one of the most famous ‎gates of the Old City…‎
The Mufti of Jerusalem and Palestine, ‎Sheikh Muhammad Hussein, warned of ‎the occupation’s intensifying Judaization ‎projects in Jerusalem. He continued: ‘The ‎oppressive occupation is trying to Judaize ‎the people and the stones, and to ‎obliterate the city’s Islamic and Arab ‎landmarks. But Jerusalem will remain the ‎heart and eternal capital of Palestine.’ ‎
Fatah Revolutionary Council member ‎Hatem Abd Al-Qader said: ‘On this ‎anniversary and this [protest] vigil, we ‎recite the Al-Fatiha Sura (opening Sura of ‎the Quran) over the souls of the Martyrs ‎‎(Shahids), salute the prisoners, and ‎emphasize that the occupation does not ‎scare us and will not alter our will despite ‎all its actions.’ He continued: ‘Jerusalem ‎will remain Islamic, Arab, Palestinian, and ‎the occupation is ephemeral, as were all ‎those who were foreign to it [Jerusalem]...’ ‎
Deputy Head of the Islamic Movement in ‎the 1948 territories (i.e., Israel) Sheikh ‎Kamal Khatib: ‘… 47 years have passed ‎since the occupation of Jerusalem; ‎despite this, the people of Jerusalem say ‎to the occupation: “You are a foreigner;” ‎the stones of Jerusalem say to it: “You are ‎a foreigner;" and the land and skies of ‎Jerusalem say: “The occupation is foreign, ‎and it will leave, just as all the previous ‎occupations left.”’”‎
Islamic-Christian Council for Jerusalem: Israel "never saw or knew any Jewish civilization, antiquities"

     “Secretary-General of the Islamic-Christian Council for Jerusalem and the Holy Places Hanna Issa said…: ‘Fate and divine will willed that the land of Jerusalem be filled with countless civilizations and antiquities – for there are various antiquities under most of the properties in the Old City of Jerusalem, including hallways, cellars, tunnels, water shafts, bath houses and places of worship… whose history goes back over 5,000 years. In the past, the Near East knew ancient civilizations of various kinds that succeeded each other, but it never saw or knew any Jewish civilization, antiquities or even a historic structure.”
Official PA daily: The Israel Antiquities Authority ‎searches for ancient Jewish history in Israel, but finds nothing more than a few synagogues 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 27, 2014
‎     “In recent years, the Israel Antiquities ‎Authority has discovered numerous ‎Byzantine-period sites in the Negev ‎desert, including – in addition to churches ‎‎– synagogues from the same period, built ‎beside the churches. It is known that ‎several synagogues from the Byzantine ‎and early Islamic periods exist in ‎Palestine, including the Shahwan ‎Synagogue (i.e., the Shalom Al-Yisrael ‎Synagogue) in Jericho. The Israeli ‎‎[Antiquities] Authority’s efforts to search ‎for an ancient Jewish history have ‎resulted in nothing more than the ‎discovery of these synagogues – whose ‎existence reflects, according to all ‎opinions, what can be described as ‎tolerance during the period of transition ‎between the end of Byzantine rule and ‎the arrival of the Muslim Arabs in ‎Palestine.…‎
The [founding] father of the State of Israel, ‎David Ben Gurion, dreamed of turning the ‎Negev desert into a paradise in which ‎Jews would live; therefore, the Zionist ‎gangs embarked on an ethnic cleansing ‎operation which included most of the ‎Arabs. The Israeli authorities treated those ‎who remained like Indians, concentrating ‎them on special ‘reservations.’ Every ‎community outside the reservations was ‎considered ‘illegal…’‎
Every conqueror and invader who ‎reached this desert either regarded it ‎differently (i.e., saw its potential) – as did, ‎for example, the Nabateans, who built a ‎series of forts on the Incense and Spice ‎route…– or neglected it, allowing its tribes ‎to either fight or make peace with each ‎other, as the Ottomans did, or tried to take ‎control of it, as the new occupiers are ‎doing.”‎

     “The talks at the International Conference for the Support of Jerusalem, organized by the UN, the Organization for Islamic Cooperation and the Turkish Foreign Ministry, began in the Turkish capital, Ankara, yesterday [May 12, 2014], with the participation of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ representative, [PA] Minister of Religious Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash…
In the speech [given in the name] of the President [Abbas], Al-Habbash asserted that Palestinian presence in Jerusalem dates back over 5,000 years, and that the Palestinians are the only permanent element in Jerusalem, while the others came and went. Al-Habbash described the grave dangers threatening Jerusalem under the Israeli occupation – despite the fact that nobody in the world recognizes Israel’s sovereignty over it. He called on all powers, parties and governments to cooperate in defending Jerusalem and protecting its Islamic-Christian identity.”

The Temple Mount is another biblical myth and is not beneath the Noble Sanctuary (Islamic name for the Temple Mount), or above it, or anywhere else. That is a fact, not an opinion, since Yitzhak Rabin, during his first government in the 1980’s, excavated beneath the “Noble Sanctuary” and found the remains of an Umayyad [Islamic] palace, which he tried to restore, but the religious parties resisted him. They told him: ‘[You are] adding sin to crime,’ a phrase… meaning, in this context, that not only did he not find remains of the Temple Mount, but wanted to restore an Umayyad Temple instead.”

The Institute said that many senior Israeli ‎officials have had a part in the incitement ‎against Al-Aqsa, either through planning ‎the construction of synagogues or ‎planning the destruction of the Mosque, ‎since synagogues constitute a base for ‎targeting the Mosque. He noted that the ‎occupation has, in recent years, ‎constructed two large synagogues: the ‎‎‘Hurva Synagogue,’ constructed on the ‎ruins of a mosque and an Islamic Trust in ‎the Al-Sharaf neighborhood (i.e., The ‎Jewish Quarter), and the Beit Yitzhak (i.e., ‎Ohel Yitzhak) Synagogue.”‎

Official PA daily: "Judaization" of Jerusalem based on "myths and fables" continues

Op-ed by Baha Rahal
     “The series of Judaization actions in Jerusalem has been going on since the beginning of the occupation of the city and since the Arab armies were defeated and fled the battlefield in June 1967, abandoning the land of the Mi'raj (Muhammad’s Ascent to Heaven) and the Resurrection of the Dead to the occupation, which has tightened its grip on the city and begun to put forth mendacious and absurd claims and to invent [things] based on myths and fables…
Alone, Jerusalem counts the time [remaining]; alone, it stands in confronting a merciless enemy, who doesn’t hesitate to implement its plans and policy against the Holy City. This policy is not confined to isolating the city with the racist wall or driving out the residents of Jerusalem, and does not stop with the demolishing of homes, but aims for the destruction of the Islamic and Christian holy places in order to construct their alleged Temple on the ruins of the houses of Allah and the places of worship. This is the real challenge undermining the stability of Jerusalem these days – at a time when we are hearing a few hesitant voices that condemn or denounce. We do not hear the voice of the majority in the Arab and Islamic world, or the world at large – a fact which the occupation state sees as a golden opportunity, especially in the wake of the so-called ‘Arab Spring,’ the fighting going on in several countries, the explosions and violence in Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Iraq, Yemen and other places. These days, the Arabs are split and divided… O brothers, o friends: There is no time to wait when [one is confronted] with an enemy racing against time. The time has come for you to desist from your old habit of condemning the occupation, which understands only the language of power.”

Israeli Arab MP falsely claims that neutral British commission found "Jews had no right" to Western Wall

     “The statements made by [Israeli-Arab] Knesset (Israeli Parliament) Member Taleb Abu Arar in his speech before the parliament plenum two days ago [March 5, 2014] on the subject of the Al-Buraq Wall (i.e., the Western Wall of the Temple Mount), enraged the extreme right.
This [occurred] because, in his speech, Abu Arar explained that a neutral commission of inquiry (the 1930 Wailing Wall Commission) established by the British Mandate – which, at the time, supported the Zionist movement – to investigate the Jews’ right to the Al-Buraq Wall, had concluded that the Al-Buraq Wall was an inseparable part of the walls of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and that the Jews had no right to it.”

Note: The 1930 Wailing Wall Commission was appointed by the British government, with the approval of the League of Nations, to settle the matter of the Jews’ and Muslims’ rights and claims to the Western Wall. The commission concluded that the Western Wall had served as a Jewish holy site long before it became a Muslim Waqf (an inalienable religious endowment in Islamic law) and that it had never served the Muslims for religious purposes. The commission’s final conclusion was that the Western Wall was holy only to the Jews and therefore they should be granted free access to worship at the site.

In addition, he warned again of the danger of the racist Israeli violations being planned against [the] Al-Aqsa [Mosque], the Ibrahimi Mosque (Cave of the Patriarchs), and the rest of our people’s holy sites, all of which confirm that Israel’s aim is to tighten its control over [the] Al-Aqsa [Mosque], in preparation for destroying it and building their alleged Temple.”

Each day, they come out with a new refrain that not [even] the first Zionists before them could have imagined, and pretend that their alleged Temple stood exactly at the site of the Al-Aqsa Mosque…
Recognizing the ‘Jewishness of the State’ is an implicit confirmation that the refugees have no rights, that we stole ourselves a homeland and have not been [living] on our ancestors’ land for thousands of years. If the Jews were indeed present [here] for a short period in the history of our land, that presence was not along the coast, nor in the north or south of Palestine. In other words, the Jews never passed through or were present in the territories which the peace process firmly defines as being outside the negotiations and [designates] as Israeli territory.”
