‘Palestinians’ renaming Jewish historical site

Posted by avideditor on January 20, 2011

The crazy jihadis are trying to rewrite history by changing the name of jewish holy sites. They are going to fail. Not many are stupid enough to fall for their bs.
From http://israelmatzav.blogspot.com/2011/01/palestinians-renaming-jewish-historical.html
A new study indicates that since 2001, the ‘Palestinian Authority’ has systematicallychanged the names of Jewish historical sites in ‘Palestinian’ textbooks in order to deny the Jewish heritage.

According to the CEO of the institute and the author of the report, Shelley Elkayam, the phenomenon is characterised by a few levels of significance, among them gender symbolism alongside subversive logical undermining and a slipping away from the modern-historical to the mythical-legendary.

Elkayam asserted that the Palestinian edition itself explains the process of change as a conscious manipulation which was done by “Palestinian, Arab, and Islamic centres and with the help of charities working to revive the Arab Palestinian heritage to maintain the character of Palestine and its heritage like Al-Burke Wall – the Western Wall, Bilal Ibn Rabah Mosque – Rachel’s tomb.”

The IMPACT-SE report showed the change clearly. On page 91 in the 1995 grade 6 book Palestinian Civil Studies, Rachel’s tomb was “Rachel’s tomb: mother of Joseph our lord (Said) and Jacob’s wife”, while on page 56 in the 2001 version of the book for grade 7 Rachel’s tomb was transformed by the Palestinians into a mosque.

In the schoolbook from 2001, in an exercise titled “attempts to erase the Palestinian heritage” Bilal Mosque [Rachel’s tomb] and the cave of the Patriarchs are presented to the children as part of the Palestinian “philosophical heritage” and examples of “the attempt to ‘turn Jewish’ Muslim-religious places like: Abraham’s Mosque [cave of the patriarchs] and Bilal Ibn Rabah mosque [Rachel’s tomb]”.

But their goal is ‘two states living side by side in peace.’ Tell me about it….
