Itamar Marcus of Palestinian Media Watch, an Israeli monitor of Arab media, condemned the Palestinian Authority for broadcasting a feature that called for the expulsion of Israelis from Israel.
“It is time for you [Israelis] to be gone,” said a voice over images of Tel Aviv and an Israeli flag. “Live wherever you like, but don’t live among us. It is time for you to be gone. Die wherever you like, but don’t die among us.”
Itamar Marcus said the feature, broadcast Dec. 20 and on a previous occasion, was “yet another program on Palestinian Authority television calling for the destruction of Israel.”
Segments of the program, which focused on the town of Jaffa, can be viewed here.
Marcus said the program opened with “a revision of history,” by casting the ancient Canaanites as Arabs.
“Palestine was attacked by invaders, but its Arab Canaanite features withstood attempts to change them,” the narrator says. Jaffa “remained Arab in name, because the indigenous remain, while the foreign vanish. ..”
Marcus said that in this program “the more than 3,000 years of Jewish history in the area are pre-dated by a fabricated Arab history.” The Arab conquest, he pointed out, actually took place in the 7th century.
That’s 7th century AD, folks. And they say Muslims invented arithmetic. LOL
