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' advisor: Western Wall "is ours and will remain ours"

Abbas' advisor on Religious and Islamic Affairs, Mahmoud Al-Habbash:
"All of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, including its plazas, stone benches, prayer niches and walls, including the Al-Buraq Wall (i.e., the Western Wall of the Temple Mount), including the blessed Al-Buraq Wall - all these are waqf to us (i.e., an inalienable religious endowment in Islamic law). All this is waqf and kharaj land (i.e., land belonging to Muslims) and no one is permitted to sell it or negotiate over it or forfeit it. It is ours and will remain ours. The occupation is the one that will leave."

Note: Islam's Prophet Muhammad is said to have rode during his Night Journey from Mecca to "al aqsa mosque", i.e., "the farthest mosque" (Quran, Sura 17), and there tied his miraculous flying steed named Al-Buraq to a "stone" or a "rock." (Jami` at-Tirmidhi, Book 47, Hadith 3424). In the 1920's, Arab Mufti Haj Amin Al-Husseini decided to identify the Western Wall of the Temple in Jerusalem as that "rock" or "stone," and since then Muslims refer to the Western Wall as the "Al-Buraq Wall."

The fact Israel is ‎trying to establish on the ground is the ‎division of the Al-Aqsa Mosque according ‎to time and place, with the empty excuse ‎that it [Israel] has a claim to it.

Israel uses falsification and fabrication to distort historic and religious facts, with the aim of realizing its false claims regarding the application of a Jewish character [to Jerusalem] and the construction of the alleged Temple over the ruins of the Al-Aqsa Mosque.”

‎     “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.”‎
