The Palestinian leadership celebrated Christmas this year by claiming that Jesus was a great Palestinian.
Palestinian Media Watch reported:
The Palestinian leadership’s falsification of history by presenting Jesus as an ancient Palestinian increased in regularity as Christmas approached this year. In the last month alone, the PA media has transmitted six additional PA misrepresentations of Jesus as a Palestinian, including:
The Governor of Ramallah: “We all have the right to be proud that Jesus is a Palestinian”
PA historian: “In the final analysis, Jesus the Messiah is a Palestinian”
The PA Mufti: “Jesus is a Palestinian par excellence”
…There is an attempt to connect Jesus to the Palestinian leaders themselves. Senior PA leader Jibril Rajoub said: “The greatest Palestinian in history since Jesus is Yasser Arafat,” and an editorial in the PA official daily referred to Arafat, Jesus and Abbas as the Palestinian “holy Trinity”:
“Jesus is a Palestinian; the self-sacrificing Yasser Arafat is a Palestinian; Mahmoud Abbas, the messenger of peace on earth, is a Palestinian. How great is this nation of the holy Trinity!”
