Rewriting history
Jewish history rewritten
Jewish history in Land of Israel erased
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.

:
"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]
Fatah official: “The ominous Balfour Promise is the greatest crime” ever committed against the Palestinians, Israel was founded for colonial reasons 
Source: WAFA, official PA news agency, Oct. 31, 2017
       “Fatah Movement Central Committee member and [Fatah] General Commissioner for Arab and China Relations Abbas Zaki issued a call to the national parties and progressive political forces in the Arab homeland for the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration), in which he demanded that they consider Nov. 2, 2017, as a day of Arab rage in all of the Arab capitals and cities... Zaki explained that this is meant to force Britain to bear its moral, political, humanitarian, and legal responsibility for the consequences of the oppressive promise, and to demand that it correct the historical injustice that led to the uprooting of our Palestinian people, its expulsion, and the occupation of its homeland... He said that the ominous Balfour Promise is the greatest crime that has been committed against the Palestinian people for 100 years, and it is a type of strengthening of the strategic interests of the colonialist forces, which adopted, supported, and strengthened the Zionist project, goals, and presence in Palestine, the heart of the Arab homeland. This was in order to prevent its unity, take over its resources, divide it, split it, and undermine its stability, so that Israel would always be a hostile body to its surroundings and require backing from the colonialist states.”

Abbas advisor: Balfour Declaration is “a promise from one without ownership to one that is undeserving” [i.e., Jews] which was a “crime”  
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 30, 2017
      "[PA] Supreme Shari’ah Judge and [PA] President [Mahmoud Abbas’] advisor on Religious and Islamic Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash emphasized that the Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration) is a promise from one without ownership to one that is undeserving. [Al-Habbash] held Britain responsible for the tragedy resulting from [the promise], and from which the members of our people and the peoples of the region are suffering due to this ominous promise, and [said] that this injustice must disappear so that the world and region will live calmly and in peace. [Al-Habbash] added that this crime that Britain committed caused tragedies to the Palestinian people, and it is a crime against our people and the Muslims in general…
He noted that after 100 years, instead of Britain apologizing it is holding a celebration for the anniversary of this crime, and British Prime Minister [Theresa May] is proud of her country's crime, due to which blood was spilled and rights were stolen… The supreme Shari'ah judge explained that after 100 years of oppression, our people is still resisting, and its determination has not been broken."

      “When it continues to celebrate the 100th [anniversary] of the greatest crime of the era that Britain committed against the Palestinian homeland, people, and future with the Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration,) what the government of Britain is doing is nothing but the completion of this crime and the slaughter of the basic moral and human values, so that the murderer will be able to continue to dance on the bodies of his victims! [Former British Foreign Secretary Arthur] Balfour – who gave something that was not his at all to one who has no right...There is nothing that can justify the celebration of this crime… and the 100 years since Balfour are 100 years of Palestinian suffering and 100 years of wars and struggles in this region. The first organized state-terror is the terror of the British crown through the Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration), which was nothing but colonialist plans to steal a homeland, expel a people, and rip apart a nation…
In insisting on celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Promise, British Prime Minister [Theresa May] is striving to forge and invent values that have no basis in the human and cultural system of ethics.”

Abbas’ advisor: Balfour Declaration was an “ugly crime,” giving Palestine to “undeserving” Jews

Supreme Shari’ah Judge and Mahmoud Abbas’ advisor on Religious and Islamic Affairs, Mahmoud Al-Habbash: "In another few days we will mark the miserable anniversary of the ugly injustice and ugly crime that befell our people, through what is known as the Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration). In another few days, on Nov. 2 [2017], it will be 100 years of the ugliest injustice to ever befall [our] people in this land, in the modern age. One with no ownership of this land – Foreign Secretary [Arthur Balfour] of Britain which occupied Palestine while having no ownership of any part of Palestine, not even one millimeter or one grain of sand – gave a promise to one undeserving who has no connection to this land, not religiously or historically, at the expense of the Palestinian people... They [Britain] have no ownership and they have no right, and those to whom they made the promise [the Jews] have no right to it... Balfour and Britain committed this crime at our expense and at the expense of our history and rights, and this is not consistent with reason, religion, law, and morals."

      “The Fatah Movement said that the ominous [Balfour] Promise (i.e., Declaration) that Britain gave the Jews 100 years ago is an invalid promise, and that they do not have a right to the land of Palestine so as to be able to promise it to others. Fatah Revolutionary Council member and Fatah Spokesman Osama Al-Qawasmi... emphasized that Britain committed the most horrible crime against mankind when it gave itself permission to give this promise and implement it through the mandate conspiracy and the laying of the foundation for the establishment of the Israeli occupation state on the ruins of the Palestinian people. [He noted that the Palestinian people] have put down roots in the depths of the Palestinian land since the Canaanites set foot on this blessed land… Al-Qawasmi said: ‘The government of Britain is required to apologize to the Palestinian people that is standing firm, and to its women and children who were uprooted to refugee camps in the diaspora because of this ominous promise. It must atone for its crime, at least a little, by immediately recognizing the state of Palestine whose capital is Jerusalem, instead of celebrating the 100th anniversary of the ominous promise and the most horrible crime in the history of mankind.’"

     “Yesterday [Oct. 10, 2017] an unprecedented escalation in the settlers’ attacks against the religious and civilian sites in the West Bank was recorded. The Israeli occupation forces continued yesterday – on the second consecutive day of the closure of the Ibrahimi Mosque (i.e., Cave of the Patriarchs) to Muslims in occupied Hebron to protect more than 20,000 Jewish settlers who came to the mosque in order to hold ceremonies for the Sukkot holiday…
Director and Head of the Guardians of the Ibrahimi Mosque Sheikh Hafzi Abu Sneineh said that the occupation authorities are Judaizing Hebron in different ways, including through the media, while pointing out that the number of settlers who invaded the Ibrahimi Mosque during the Sukkot holiday that the Israeli media is noting is not precise, and that through this they are trying to draw additional settlers to visit Hebron and the Ibrahimi Mosque. [Abu Sneineh] said: ‘The Ibrahimi Mosque will remain a religious site for Muslims only, and the Jews have no right of any sort to it.’”

Op-ed: Balfour Declaration was “crime against humanity,” Jews have no right to Palestine 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 1, 2017
Headline: “”A century since Balfour and a half century of settlements”

Excerpt of an op-ed by Muwaffaq Matar, Fatah Revolutionary Council member and regular columnist for the official PA daily

“Britain can celebrate a century since the promise of British Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour, whose kingdom committed a crime against humanity when it had a mandate over Palestine. It denied the Palestinian people its future in its homeland, Palestine, and gave the leaders of the colonialist, occupying, and settling enterprise in Palestine a homeland – of which the kingdom did not own [even] one grain of sand. Likewise, not one of the Jews who arrived at the beaches of Palestine in ships – as invaders or refugees from the hell of persecution in Europe – has ownership [of Palestine].”

The Balfour Declaration of Nov. 2, 1917 was a letter from British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour to Baron Rothschild stating that “His Majesty's government views with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people.” In 1922, the League of Nations adopted this and made the British Mandate “responsible for putting into effect the declaration,” which led to the UN vote in 1947 and the establishment of the State of Israel.

He explained that Ibrahim (i.e., the Biblical figure Abraham), the father of the prophets, was a monotheistic Muslim (sic., in Jewish traition Abraham was the first Jew and lived over 2,000 years before Islam began), which refutes the Zionists’ claims about the Ibrahimi Mosque (i.e., Cave of the Patriarchs) and the Al-Aqsa Mosque (i.e., the Temple Mount). Therefore, the Arab and Islamic nation must have an active presence in order to deter the occupation and its steps against the Palestinian people, its land, and its holy sites.”

Sports expert Saba Jarrar:
"It is impossible to claim that the [Palestine football] team that played [in the 1930s] was an Israeli team. Israel did not exist. The team that played was Palestinian, whether most of it was Jewish, Muslim, or Christian. This doesn’t invalidate that Palestine played in Australia, and in Alexandria, and so on... We cannot allow them to rewrite history and claim that this was an Israeli team. It wasn’t an Israeli team, it was a Jewish Palestinian team that played under the name ‘Palestine.’"

PA TV: Israel a “destructive colonialist project” established through Britain’s “great fraud and deception” 
Source: Official PA TV Live, June 15, 2017
Official PA TV Live program The TV Dictionary, on the Al-Fida'iya Association

“The Al-Fida'iya Association is considered the first Palestinian military association, even though the armed activity against the Zionist project began in 1886, when Palestinian residents that were thrown out of the village of Mulabbis attacked the homes of the settlers that were built on the lands of their village (i.e., Petah Tikva). The Al-Fida'iya Association began to operate in 1918, after Britain occupied Palestine. The association established branches in Palestinian cities such as Jerusalem, Gaza, Nablus, Hebron, Tulkarem, and Ramle .
Muhammad Al-Dabbagh led the organization, and afterwards he was replaced by Mahmoud Aziz Al-Khaledi, and the organization had a secret advisory council whose members included: Haj Amin Al-Husseini (i.e., Grand Mufti of Jerusalem who collaborated with Adolf Hitler), Sheikh Sa’id Al-Khatib, [and] Hassan Abu Al-Saoud … The organization operated in complete secrecy…
This organization acted to prepare the comprehensive revolution against the British occupation, and to resist the Zionist project, and was especially interested in disseminating the principles of Arab unity. The Al-Fida'iya Association provided small arms to its members and prepared lists with the names of the Zionist leaders.
[The organization] established a unit for the purpose of monitoring what was happening and being published in the press (i.e., a type of intelligence service)… and even though the general view regarding Britain at the time basically assumed that Britain was an ally of the Arabs… afterwards Britain’s great fraud and deception were exposed, which led to the establishment of a destructive colonialist project that shattered the hopes of the Arab nation, and imposed an oppressive occupation from whose disastrous results the whole region is still suffering from to this day.

Fatah denies Jewish history: Jews have no historical right to “claim ownership over land or settle in it” 
Source: Official Fatah Facebook page, June 5, 2017
Link to op-ed article and text from the article posted on the official Fatah Facebook page


Posted text: “We explicitly note that it is forbidden for any member of the Jewish religion to claim yesterday or today that he has a national, genetic-hereditary, or tribal connection to the Arab Yemenite Children of Israel who have disappeared from the world. It has already been proven scientifically to those who claim this that there is no such connection (sic., research has proven Jews share such connections and Yemenite Jews still exist -Ed.), and so too regarding the claims about a land or wall (sic., there is abundant archaeological evidence proving the Jewish connection to Israel and the Western Wall –Ed.).
We say that no one today has the right to claim ownership of any place that is considered in their eyes as holy or a place that is forbidden to enter for anyone other than them, as in the case of the lies of the Promised Land, the Holy Land, and the Chosen People. Otherwise, all of the Christians of the world would come to live in Palestine, as it is holy to them, which is something that has never doubted, and it is likewise holy to the Muslims. An ancient example of this is the wars of the Europeans - the invaders called Crusaders – which were waged in the region.
Therefore, no members of any religion, and particularly the Jews who currently are comprised of a number of different nationalities, have a right to claim ownership over a place, to conquer it, and to settle in it, or to claim that its sanctity grants them ownership over it and allows them to steal it to establish their state in it.”

“Permanent Observer of Palestine to the UN Ambassador Riyad Mansour sent three identical letters to the three heads of the UN: the UN CEO, this month’s president of the Security Council (Egypt), and the chairman of the General Assembly. In the letters he noted that May 15, 2016 was the 68th anniversary of the Nakba (i.e., “the catastrophe,” Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel) in 1948.

In his letters, Mansour explained that 68 years ago more than 800,000 Palestinians were uprooted, expelled from their homes and lands, or fled out of fear for their lives, after the Zionist terrorist organizations perpetrated barbaric massacres in more than 400 cities and villages in Mandatory Palestine, in a clear act of ethnic cleansing… [He added:] ‘Today, the Palestinian Nakba continues. Millions of them live in the Diaspora as refugees, without receiving their inalienable right to return to their homes, or continue to live in the State of Palestine, including in East Jerusalem, under Israeli military occupation for nearly 50 years. They are forced to suffer the constant violations of their human rights and endure more loss of life and property, in addition to indescribable suffering and difficulty.’ Ambassador Mansour noted that on Nakba Day, ‘we must again emphasize the Palestinian refugees’ right of return, a collective and personal right according to UN resolutions, and especially resolution 194 of the General Assembly. This right does not expire as time passes, and honoring it is basic to achieving a just and permanent solution to the conflict.’”

Palestinians commemorate Nakba Day on May 15, the day after Israeli Independence Day. On May 15, 1948, combined forces from Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Iraq joined Palestinian Arab forces in an attempt to eradicate the newly-established State of Israel. The Nakba (i.e. "the catastrophe) refers to the displacement of Palestinians that occurred as a result of this Arab war of aggression against Israel.
