Erekat Is Wrong: The Jewish Presence in the Land Dates Back for Millennia

shalom al yisrael jericho

Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat claimed at the Munich Security Conference on Jan. 31 that the Palestinians cannot accept Israel as the Jewish state because they lived in the region long before the Jews.

In the context of the current debate over the Jordan Valley, Erekat claimed that his ancestors were the real descendants of the Canaanites and lived in the area for “5,500 years before Joshua Bin-Nun.”1

In effect, Erekat was promoting the well-known Palestinian narrative that they are the native population, while the Jews are latecomers who only arrived in the last hundred years. Since the Muslim Arab conquest of Palestine occurred only in 634CE, the credibility of this Palestinian claim is questionable, to say the least.

At the same time, there is documented proof of a Jewish presence in the land dating back millennia. In Jericho itself, the Shalom al Yisrael (Peace unto Israel) synagogue with its magnificent mosaic was discovered in the 1930s and dates back to the Byzantine period. Not far away is the Wadi Kelt synagogue which dates back to 75 BCE, from the time of the Hasmonean monarchy, making it the oldest synagogue to have been discovered.2

According to Moshe Gil’s A History of Palestine 634-1099 published by Cambridge University Press, “The Jewish population in Palestine residing in the country at the time of the Muslim conquest consisted of the direct descendants of the generations of Jews who had lived there since the days of Joshua bin Nun, in other words, for some 2,000 years.”3 In the fifth century, “the Jews and the Samaritans virtually governed the land.”4

Salo Wittmayer Baron, in A Social and Religious History of the Jews published by Columbia University Press, recounts how the Caliph ‘Umar I embarked on a career of world conquest in 634 in the first decade after Mohammed’s death. “‘Umar expelled the Jews of Khaibar, the largest and most intact non-Muslim group still remaining in northern Arabia.” According to Al-Bukhari, the most famous and authoritative compiler of Muslim traditions known as hadith, ‘Umar deported Khaibar Jews to Jericho.5

There is another tradition that most of the Jews of Khaybar settled in Jericho and in the surrounding area. “The Jews of Khaybar apparently spread out from Jericho along the Jordan Valley, reaching the Sanur Valley in northern Samaria.”6

Thus, the Jewish presence in the land can be documented as dating back for millennia, while the politically-motivated claims made up by Palestinian leaders in an attempt to refute the long-standing history of the Jews in the region lack any such proof.

'Abbas is one of the most honest people in the world'

To those who distrust PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas Pundak declared Abbas was in fact "one of the most honest people in the world."

"Abbas is straight as a ruler." Pundak said, adding that "I know him better than most Israelis."

Just last Wednesday, Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz labeled Abbas as "the world's number one anti-Semite", for teaching that the PA has "to destroy Israel sooner or later, and destroy the Jews sooner or later." Abbas has praised terrorist murderers as "heroes" on numerous occasions, and members of the PA revealed the peace talks are merely the "first stage" in eradicating Israel completely.

In the face of it all, however, Pundak maintains his trust in the PA.

"Abbas understands the Palestinian interest is to make peace with Israel because that's an anchor that will maintain the future of the Middle East, the regional peace, and the Palestinian state," claimed Pundak. "As long as Abbas is there, there's an opportunity."

Abbas has already refused to recognize Israel as a Jewish state, and has made clear that a future "Palestinian state" would be free of all Jews.

This is not the first time Pundak has courted controversy with what some might describe as remarkable naivete; in 2004, Pundak called Marwan Barghouti, the terrorist responsible for the murder of over 30 Israelis, a "true partner for peace."

Apparently the audience found fault with Pundak's arguments, as they burst into boos several times during his talk, interrupting his words.

PA School Named To Inspire New Female Terrorists

The Palestinian Authority (PA) has long been employing extreme incitement against Israel and Jews; one of its most effective methods to indoctrinate the next generation is to start young. A new PA girls' high school named after a female terrorist ensures the legacy of terror will continue unbroken.

A broadcast on official PA TV last December interviewed young female students at the school that was recently named after Shadia Abu Ghazaleh, a terrorist active in the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). She died in 1968 when a bomb she was preparing for an attack in Tel Aviv accidentally detonated on her.

Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) translated the response of the students when asked what they knew about Ghazaleh. According to the girls, the terrorist was "a patriotic woman," and "a model of the patriotic woman who stood with the men against Zion." A sign on the school wall declares that it is an official PA school.



"She was a model of the wonderful female Palestinian fighter. We follow her path in this school," remarked one impressionable young girl, as another stated "the school is named after her to commemorate her and memorialize her and encourage people to be like her."

PMW notes that many PA schools have been named after terrorists, including at least 2 high schools and a kindergarten named after the terrorist Dalal Mughrabi, who led a bus hijacking in 1978 in which 37 Israelis were murdered, 12 of them children.

In the same broadcast about the new school, PA TV interviewed a member of the terror group PFLP's political bureau, Mariam Abu Daqqa. "With her blood she delineated a path for all of Palestine's women, (according to which) later tales of bravery were written," claimed Daqqa, mentioning Mughrabi as an example of those following Ghazaleh's footsteps.

The same PA TV special showed a portrait of the terrorist Ghazaleh which adorns the girls' high school's wall. An inscription there states Ghazaleh's "political activity began at a young age. ...She participated in the operation (terror attack) that blew up a bus. ...She was at home preparing a bomb in order to detonate it in an Israeli building in Tel Aviv, but it exploded in her hands and she died a martyr."

Biblical archeology in West Bank rejected by Palestinians

Biblical archeology in West Bank rejected by Palestinians

Israeli settlers in Hebron have begun excavations, in cooperation with the Israel Antiquities Authority, to search for remains of the government King David had in the ancient city when he ruled over the tribe of Judah before becoming King over all Israel and moving his government to Jerusalem. "I want people to visit Hebron and leave with the cultural and religious significance of the site to the Jewish people, the State of Israel and people around the world," said David Wilder, spokesman for the Jewish community in Hebron. However, Palestinian residents have decried the archeological excavation as an attempt to strengthen the narrative they reject of Hebron and the rest of the West Bank being an area Jews are tied to historically and thus have a right to retain.

Hamas reiterates rejection of peace with Israel

The Palestinian Islamist terror militia Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip, issued a statement on Tuesday reiterating its rejection of the ongoing negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. One official specifically reacted to statement PA President Mahmoud Abbas made recently that the PA would agree to a demilitarized state in the West Bank and recognize Israel. "Such statements are a preface for liquidating the Palestinian cause and preventing the right of return for Palestinian refugees," Hamas official Salah Bardaweel said. "The biggest disaster would be to recognize Israel as a Jewish state. This would pave the way for the expulsion of more Palestinians from their historic land." Elsewhere, the French newspaper Le Figaro quoted Palestinian Islamic Jihad official Ahmed al-Mudalal as saying that his group would destroy any agreement that "legalizes Zionist occupation in Palestine."

At the Munich Security Conference last week, chief Palestinian Authority negotiator Saeb Erekat told attendees that his government simply can not recognize Israel as the "Jewish state" because the Palestinians have been in the region longer than the Jews.

Erekat asserted that his ancestors had lived in the land for "5,500 years before Joshua Bin-Nun," the biblical leader of Israel's entry into the Promised Land.

The Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs has issued a strong responseto Erekat's fanciful retelling of history.

"Since the Muslim Arab conquest of Palestine occurred only in 634CE, the credibility of this Palestinian claim is questionable, to say the least," the JCPR noted.

On the other hand, mountains of written and archaeological evidence point to a Jewish presence going back thousands of years. Even Muslim sources acknowledged the ancient Jewish connection to the land.

"The Jewish presence in the land can be documented as dating back for millennia, while the politically-motivated claims made up by Palestinian leaders in an attempt to refute the long-standing history of the Jews in the region lack any such proof," the JCPR concluded.

'Allah Gave Israel to The Jews, Palestine Made Up'

7. 'Allah Gave Israel to The Jews, There's No Palestine'

by Ari Yashar

Allah has promised Israel to the Jews -- so says Sheikh Ahmad Adwan, a Muslim scholar living in Jordan, who declared on his Facebook page recently that "Palestine" doesn't exist.

Blogger Elder of Ziyon translated Arab news sources that this Saturday reported on Adwan's statements, in which he quotes the Koran saying Allah assigned Israel to the Jews until the Day of Judgement (Sura 5 Verse 21), and that Jews are the inheritors of Israel (Sura 26 Verse 59).

"I say to those who distort...the Koran: from where did you bring the name Palestine, you liars, you accursed, when Allah has already named it 'The Holy Land' and bequeathed it to the Children of Israel until the Day of Judgment," argued Adwan. "There is no such thing as 'Palestine' in the Koran."

"Your demand for the Land of Israel is a falsehood and it constitutes an attack on the Koran, on the Jews and their land. Therefore you won’t succeed, and Allah will fail you and humiliate you, because Allah is the one who will protect them (i.e. the Jews)," warns Adwan.

The sheikh had more harsh words for the "Palestinians," calling them "the killers of children, the elderly and women" in using them as human shields in order to falsely accuse the Jews of targeting them. He reports having seen the same tactic used by "Palestinians" against the Jordanian army in the 1970s.

"This is their habit and custom, their viciousness, their having hearts of stones towards their children, and their lying to public opinion, in order to get its support," declared Adwan.

Adwan has previously said his support for the Jewish people "comes from my acknowledgment of their sovereignty on their land and my belief in the Koran, which told us and emphasized this in many places, like His (Allah’s) saying ”Oh People (i.e the Children of Israel), enter the Holy Land which Allah has assigned unto you'" (Sura 5, Verse 21).

The Jews are a peaceful people according to Adwan, who says "if they are attacked, they defend themselves while causing as little damage to the attackers as possible. It is an honor for them that Allah has chosen them over the worlds – meaning over the people and the Jinns (spiritual creatures) until the Day of Judgment. ...When Allah chose them, He didn’t do so out of politeness, and He wasn’t unjust other peoples, it is just that they (the Jews) deserved this.”

Video (mostly in Hebrew) from Orot TV shows Adwan's 2012 visit to Tzfat, where he met with the city's Chief Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu and expressed his support for Israel:

'Even the Koran Claims Israel Belongs to the Jews'

'Even the Koran Claims Israel Belongs to the Jews'

by Tova DvorinMiddle Eastern affairs professor Nissim Dana spoke to Arutz Sheva Monday about his upcoming book, To Whom Does This Land Belong?: New Insights into the Koran, and revealed that Islam absolutely does not have a claim to the Land of Israel - even by its own standards.

The Professor explained that the new book, published by the Bialik Institute and Ariel University, reveals several more insights into the Koran that remain unknown to the average Muslim and even some Muslim religious leaders.

Dana noted that top Islamic figures, such as Sheikh Yusuf Al Qaradawi, have embarked on a fierce campaign to separate the Jewish people from their rightful homeland and claim that Muslims have a sacred right to the Land of Israel.

However, Professor Dana noted, Al Qaradawi's efforts defy the Koran itself. Israel is mentioned eight times, according to the Professor, and there is not a single mention that it belongs to Arabs or Muslims. "Whenever there is a reference to the Land of Israel and to whom it belongs, the Koran points to the Jewish people," Professor Dana explained.

Dana pointed to Koran 7:7, where G-d Himself bequeaths the Land of Israel to the Jews, as a nation who thought themselves weak, and blesses them with goodness. The "weakness," according to Dana, is a reference to the Torah's incident with the Spies in Bamidbar (Numbers), where Israel's representatives hesitate to go into the land out of fear.

As for the argument that the Land of Israel was originally intended for the Jews, but G-d switched allegiances to Islam, Dana notes that there is no source in the Koran for such a statement. He adds a source in the fifth chapter of the Islamic holy text whereby Mohammed says on his deathbed that returning to the Land of Israel is impossible in and of itself, because G-d placed in Moses's mouth the declaration that the Land of Israel belongs to the Jewish people.

He backs up his argument with proof from one of the greatest and well-known commentators on the Koran who sought to determine where Israel's borders are for the Jewish people on the basis of the Koran and determined that, according to Islam, the Jewish people are privy to land between the Nile and the Euphrates.

Dana noted that his book took over ten years to write and was compiled with the help of Arabic-speaking students who knew the language and its sources well. Most Muslims do not have deep knowledge of the Koran itself, he noted, and thus their beliefs about the Jewish people and the Land of Israel are dependent mostly on their leaders.
