JESUS WAS A PALESTINIAN!
"Oh you who stand fast, oh heroes on the land of the 'night journey and ascension to heaven [of the Prophet Muhammad as told in the Koran],' on the land of the first direction of prayer, oh heroes in the third most holy site [in Islam], in the birthplace of Jesus and the place of our master Muhammad's ascension to heaven.
"I tell you that we are now in a historic stage... you are defending the first direction of prayer and the third most holy site, the site of the Messiah's birth; your steadfastness is most important not only for Palestine and not only for the Arab nation, but also for all the Christians and Muslims in the world..."
Yasser Arafat, in an address to Jerusalemites WAFA in Ramallah, (Palestinian News Agency, December 18, 2001)
“I am a Palestinian Christian and I know what Christianity is. I am a descendant of the first Christians in the world, and Jesus Christ was born in my country, in my land. Bethlehem is a Palestinian town” Hanan Ashrawi, Madrid October 1991.
"Jesus was a Palestinian." (Washington Jewish Week, Feb. 22, 2001)
"The Jews await the false Jewish messiah, while we await, with Allah's help… the Mahdi and Jesus, peace be upon him. Jesus's pure hands will murder the false Jewish messiah. Where? In the city of Lod, in Palestine. Palestine will be, as it was in the past, a graveyard for the invaders - just as it was a graveyard for the Tatars and to the Crusader invaders, [and for the invaders] of the old and new colonialism…"
"A reliable Hadith [tradition] says: 'The Jews will fight you, but you will be set to rule over them.' What could be more beautiful than this tradition? 'The Jews will fight you' - that is, the Jews have begun to fight us. 'You will be set to rule over them' - Who will set the Muslim to rule over the Jew? Allah… Until the Jew hides behind the rock and the tree."
"But the rock and tree will say: 'Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, a Jew hides behind me, come and kill him.' Except for the Gharqad tree, which is the tree of the Jews."
"We believe in this Hadith. We are convinced also that this Hadith heralds the spread of Islam and its rule over all the land…"
Sheikh Ibrahim Madhi at the Sheikh 'Ijlin Mosque in Gaza City, broadcast live on April 12, 2002 by Palestinian Authority television:
"The principles of Islam and the teachings of Jesus Christ make it imperative on us to take the road that satisfies God and our conscience . . . that is the road of jihad (holy war).
Without jihad we will not realize what we are hoping for in achieving peace and justice and saving humanity from the evils of the criminals, the murderers." - Saddam Hussein, President of Iraq, from his Christmas message, Dec. 24, 2000.
Jesus (was) "the first Palestinian Shahid.” [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, January 17, 2005]
“We must not forget that (Jesus) Messiah, may peace be upon him, is Palestinian, the son the Mary the Palestinian, who is sanctified by hundreds of millions of believers in this world.”
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, November 18, 2005]
"It was quite natural that the Palestinians rose to save their sanctuaries [in Nazareth] without anyone thinking there is a difference between a Christian and a Muslim… since in the Palestinian situation, the lord Messiah [Jesus] and his mother [Mary] are both Galileans and Palestinians …"
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, March 9, 2006]
“The Palestinian Galilee village of Kfar Kana takes pride in the fact that in [the village] the Palestinian Messiah succeeded to turn water into wine.”
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, December 14, 2004]
“…And a child from the De’haisha refugee camp will shout: “Yes, we have won, just as the prophets and [Jesus’] Apostles won,” and the shahids will cry, ‘We shook the palm trees alongside Lady Earth and the lady of the people, the Virgin Mary, and with her son the first Palestinian Shahid.”
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, January 17, 2005]
“Muhammad [Al Dura, child who was killed by undetermined gunfire] ... a tiny sleeping Jesus...”
[Al-Quds, May 25, 2001]
During a culture program, a Palestinian artist depicts Israeli soldiers arresting Jesus, and explains that Jesus symbolizes the Palestinians.
Artist: "Our struggle today against the other side is an eternal one. It can be said that it started 2,000 years ago and continues until today. I demonstrate this through the figure of Jesus… The Israeli soldiers are wearing army uniforms while Jesus has nothing except for the truth. When they searched him at the entrance of Jerusalem, they found a stone, a piece of bread and fish and he was cuffed. This is the Palestinian from the beginning of the struggle until the end."
