BDS -- A case of MYTH-taken identity
By Tabitha Korol
May 1, 2012

When one's history is so vile and violent that tolerance would be impossible, change it! But how do you change a 14-century history if it has already occurred? Conceal it. Lie about it. Accuse others of being offensive if they utter something that discloses the truth, that any allusion to Islamic law and history is an insult and crime against their religion. Accuse the media of indignities if they expose abhorent Islamic behavior. Replace old textbooks with whitewashed Islamism. Create films for PBS to spread the fallacious material. Usurp another's history and take their identity; lay claim to their prophets and artifacts and rename areas to substantiate new myths. Promote, publicize, and train the youth to relinquish their lives in order to spread the word "for the greater good."

Muslims annex and destroy worship places to validate their new myths. Their historical revisionism uses ideology, policy and strategy to completely refute any connection between the original people and their previous homeland, just as they destroyed and covered over the histories of Zoroastrians, Buddhists, Hindus, and Coptic Christians, and are now killing Christians and burning churches to the ground in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia, an increase of 309% from 2003 and 2010.

As Muslims work to eradicate the history of Israel and the Jewish people, they replace them with a myth of Palestinian antiquity. Despite volumes of scripture from Jewish, Christian, and Muslim sources, along with archaeological substantiation; ancient, medieval and modern historical documentation that verify the Jewish connection to Israel; Muslim leaders, enabled by Western antisemites of all stripes, have launched an offensive to deny Israel's legitimacy and existence. New Islamic myths hold that Judaism's Adom, Moses, Kings David and Solomon, and Christianity's Jesus were Muslim, thereby identifying Islam's conquest and occupation as "recapture and liberation of their lands." In their own words, the Muslim Brotherhood is engaged in a "grand Jihad" with the intention of "eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within."

But how can the claims be realistic if their culture bears no resemblance whatsoever to the Law of Moses, the Torah, or the teachings of Jesus? Certainly, Judaism and Christianity do not demand the inhumanity — torture, enslavement, amputation, decapitation, stoning — that Islam exhorts!

As Islamists target the smaller prey, Israel, with the assistance of the larger prey, Western civilization, we remember Winston Churchill's words, "with the hopes that if he feeds the crocodile enough, the crocodile will eat him last," but eat you he will. Denying the past includes re-identifying and renaming areas (Judea and Samaria as the West Bank); claiming Jerusalem as theirs (although Jerusalem is mentioned 792 times in the Hebrew bible and only once In the Koran); adopting antiquities and Jewish tombs as their own; and destroying all evidence of Jewish history, just as they did with the previous cultures.

Myth: The Palestinians are the indigenous people of the area.

Repudiation: The terms Palestine, Philistia and Palestina all refer to defined areas inhabited by different peoples and cultures. There was never a political entity with defined borders and national identity known as Palestine until the British Mandatory Palestine, 1922. Arabs migrated to the area for work; most of today's Arabs can trace their ancestry to 150 years ago. Zahir Muhsein (1977) of the PLO said, "Today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people..." to oppose Zionism.

Myth: Palestinian people were the ancient non-Israelite peoples referenced in the Scriptures in the Holy Land.

Repudiation: The non-Israelites were the Philistines, Moabites, Edomites, Ammonites, Amorites, Arameans, Amalekites, Midianites and Canaanites of ancient Canaan. "Palestinians" did not exist in antiquity and there is no demonstrable connection between the Muslims of today and the ancient non-Israelite people of Canaan. The Israelites were the only ones to leave a record that survived into the modern era, and Egyptians and Mesopotamians left almost nothing.

Myth: Zionists invented ancient Israel history.

Repudiation: Extra-Biblical evidence of Israel's existence is on the Mernephtah stele, a granite slab created circa 1200 BC, referring to the Egyptian King's victory over an Israelite people in north-central Israel highlands. Continued references to Israel and Judah are seen in Assyrian, Babylonian, Aramaic and Persian texts from the 10th century BCE onward — including Koranic references.

Myth: The Temple Mount, holiest site in Judaism and claimed by Muslims to be the location on which Muhammad decended during his heavenly flight, never existed in Jerusalem and was Muslim from its origins.

Repudiation: The Supreme Moslem Council published in 1925 that the Temple Mount dates back to the ancient Israelite kingdom, and is identified beyond dispute with the site of Solomon's Temple. Sheikh Abdul Hadi Palazzi says, that according to the Koran, it existed as a Jewish refuge at the conquest of Jerusalem by Titus, 70 AD.

Myth: Palestinian chief judge, Tayseer Tamimi, alleged that Israeli s are excavating and destroying the Al-Aqsa Mosque and injecting chemicals into its foundation to dissolve the rocks.

Repudiation: The Islamic Waqf, which exercises religious sovereignty over the Temple Mount, is carrying out destructive excavations beneath and alongside the Mount since the late 1990s, damaging archaeological artifacts in Solomon's Stables, including First Temple remains, transferring 13,000 tons of excavated material into the municipal garbage dump to erase every sign, remnant and memory of its Jewish past. In the Islamic Sunnah, Mohammed's first bow in prayer was directed at Jerusalem, but when he was rejected by the Jews, Mohammed changed the direction to Mecca, thereby nullifying any religious significance that Jeruslam might have had for Islam. Jerusalem's insignificance changed after Israel's victory in the 1967 Six-Day War. Other archaeological cleansing eradicated Hebrew inscriptions at the tomb of Ezekiel and will include a new mosque; Rachel's tomb in Hebron is now a mosque; Joseph's tomb in Nablus was incinerated at the start of the Second Intifada.

Myth: PM Salam Fayyad of the Palestinian Authority declared The Dead Sea Scrolls Palestinian because they were found on territory over which Israel held no sovereignty, and were stolen by Israel during 1947-48; therefore, the scrolls are Palestinian de facto.

Repudiation: The Dead Sea Scrolls are 1000 years older than any Old Testament manuscrips ever found, dating back centuries before the Second Temple (70 BCE). Some have been identified as 19 copies of the Book of Isaiah, 25 copies of Deuteronomy, 30 copies of Psalms (including new ones attributed to King David and Joshua). The Palestinians did not exist before 1993 and therefore had no legal sovereignty over the Dead Sea region where the scrolls were found.

Myth: Another self-hating-Jewish collaborator, Karen Friedemann, falsifying history for the Khaleej Times, wrote that analysis of Jewish DNA indicates males were of Eastern Europe and non-Levantine Southwest Asian origin; females, of Eastern Europeans.

Repudiation: Recent genetic research shows Jews of Israel (except Ethiopians and Indians) trace back to Middle East origin; an NYU study links them to the Near East (Syria, Lebanon, Israel). Researchers from eight countries examined 600,000 genomic markers, and descendants of 14 Diaspora Jewish communities. The Palestinian assertions are thoroughly contradicted.

For their goal of genocide against Israel to work, they have to continue their lies and jihad to "regain" the land. They need to deconstruct Israel; disconnect Jews from Judaism, their homeland and their history; and continue with their fictional Palestinian lie, reflected in their Boycott-Divestment-Sanctions message of deceit, "End the Occupation." We must continue to refute them intensely and forcefully.

"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it." — Joseph Goebbels, German Minister of Propaganda, 1933 -1945
