Palestinian War on History

David Ben-Gurion explained to the British Royal Commission of Inquiry (the Peel Commission) in 1937 the basis of the Jewish demand for the right to live in the Land of Israel: "The Bible is our mandate. Our historic right has existed since the dawn of the Jewish people."

Yet the Palestinian Authority's policy is to rewrite history and replace Jewish history with a fabricated, ancient Muslim-Palestinian history. On Palestinian television programs, the biblical Canaanites are morphed into Arabs who have lived in the land since 7000 BCE. Abraham is turned into a Muslim who built Al-Aqsa mosque. Moses becomes a Muslim who shepherded the Muslims out of Egypt, and Jesus is not a Jew but a Palestinian.

It is very hard to fight lies, because those who want to believe them will continue to believe them even when presented with historical facts and scientific proof to the contrary. The writer is a lecturer in the Middle Eastern Studies Department at Bar-Ilan University. (Israel Hayom)

The only astonishing thing is that Abbas and the Palestinian leaders continue to refer to their wave of terrorism and bloodbath as a "peaceful, popular uprising."

The terrorists were doubtless inspired by their president's words. It is this kind of officially-sanctioned rhetoric that encourages young Palestinians to stab the first Jew they see.

This is not only a mountainous lie; it is an attempt on the part of the Palestinian Authority leadership to deceive the world into believing that Israeli security forces killed these poor innocent terrorists who were merely part of a peaceful protest. These "innocent" Palestinian men and women were "merely" in the process of trying to stab people to death.

The world in which Abbas and the Palestinian leadership live is a world of lies, fabrications and deception aimed at demonizing Israel and murdering Jews. The goal is not only to murder as many Jews as possible, but also to force Israel to its knees so that it will vanish as soon as possible.

Welcome to the world of the Palestinians, where we lie and then believe our own lies. And then want the rest of the world to believe them, too.
