Palestinian Professor Says Moshe Rabbeinu was a Palestinian Who Led Muslims Out of Mitzrayim


dr-omar-jaara1A Palestinian university lecturer taught during a recent Palestinian Authority TV program on religion that “Moses, a Muslim,” brought “the Muslims of the Children of Israel out of Egypt.” He refers to the subsequent Israeli conquest of the Land of Israel as the “first Palestinian liberation… of Palestine.” This conquest, he taught, was led not by Yehoshua, as Tanach tells, but by “Saul (Talut)” who slayed Golias.

While some of this is retelling of Islamic tradition, some of it is a distortion of even the Quran for political purposes. The Quran refers to the “Children of Israel” in their land in many chapters (e.g., Sura 5), but it never refers to them or anyone else as “Palestinians.” Likewise the Quran never refers to Israel’s conquest as a “Palestinian” conquest. The lecturer on PA TV, however, deviates from Islamic tradition, and calls the nation of Israel’s conquest of the Land of Israel “the first Palestinian liberation through armed struggle to liberate Palestine.”

This is another example, among many documented by Palestinian Media Watch, of PA historical revision for political purposes, in this case, rewriting even their own Islamic traditions.

The following is the interview with Dr. Omar Ja’ara, lecturer at Al-Najah University in Nablus and specialist in Israeli affairs, on PA TV religion program:

“We must make clear to the world that David in the Hebrew Bible is not connected to David in the Quran, Solomon in the Hebrew Bible is not connected to Solomon in the Quran, and neither is Saul or Joshua son of Nun [of the Bible].
We have a great leader, Saul, [in the Quran] who defeated the nation of giants and killed Goliath. This is a great Muslim victory. The Muslims of the Children of Israel went out of Egypt under the leadership of Moses, and unfortunately, many researchers deny the Exodus of those oppressed people who were liberated by a great leader, like Moses the Muslim, the believing leader, the great Muslim, who was succeeded by Saul, the leader of these Muslims in liberating Palestine. This was the first Palestinian liberation through armed struggle to liberate Palestine from the nation of giants led by Goliath. This is our logic and this is our culture.”

  1. That’s fantastic news. Please, send two dozens Muslims to my address, to finish last-minute cleaning. We have soft drinks available, and of course, in the house, everything but the alcohol is halal. In the meantime we will go eat some chometz at the restaurant, what about pizza? Of course next year we’re going to leave the whole chore to our esteemed Muslim brothers and sisters, we would never want to steal from their mitzva G-d forbid. We are all delighted, but the ladies in the house are beaming! Thank you so very much, Dr Ja’ara, for finally setting the record straight, after so many centuries of misunderstandings and toil.

  2. The good professor should give up whatever he has been smoking. Perhaps he would care to explain how there were Muslims in Egypt way before Islam’s founder was even a gleam in his parents eye. Calling Eretz Yisrael, Palestine was a fairly modern invention. etc. etc. This would be really funny but the problem with big lies like this is that the more you repeat it the more ignorant people will believe it.

  3. Rabbi Berel Wein points out the difference between Christians and Muslims in that the Christians would not dare modify the ‘Old’ Testament, since they know it’s the Word of G-D. The Muslims/Yishmoelim who took most portions of Sheker in the world have no problem saying that Yishmoel was the favored son and was the subject of the akaida, and now this.

    Just underscores the truth of our wise leaders. And the lies of theirs.

  4. I like commenter numb. 3 great proposition, but I doubt the Palestinians will ever take her/him up on the offer, because their religion doesn’t see much past the need to murder as much as possible, and lie whenever its convenient, and call yourself the victim always. its their duty. and rewriting history by them is only a means of decreasing responsibilities, not a means of taking on more responsibilities. They love to relax, and be pitied. Everyone gives them aid, in order so that they don’t gotta do nothing. And well the World body really loves them because they redefined Anti Semitisim in a convenient way. Which allows the world to say what they like about the Jews. And to continue treating us with hate, and boycot.

  5. Always wondered how one can lie with a straight face, something so blatantly absurd.
    Besides the very, very obvious, does this ‘palestinian’ believe that no one knows that Islam is only 1400 years old and it didn’t exist before then, and that there was never a ‘palestinian’ people? Those referred to by the false name of palestine were the Jews living in the land of Israel. The name palestine was named by the Romans to deJudaize the Land of Israel. Seems one doesn’t need much to make the world believe there is no such nation as the Jewish nation; makes it so easy for all the anti-semites.

  6. why does the palestinians keep on saying lies.all theyre trying to do is lie so don;t even think this article is even 1% true
