I learned from here that:
Prof. Mustafa Kabaha [Kabha], Department of History and Philosophy at the Quds Open University [his Ph.D., Aranne School of History, Tel-Aviv University and that ‘Quds Open University’ is just the Israeli Open University], said that the Israeli occupation seeks to blur and thieve the Palestinian identity and history…Israeli authorities started renaming the Palestinian towns, cities and streets in order to impose the Israeli ideological, religious, and national control over the Palestinian territories in an attempt to falsify the land’s history…Kabaha revealed that there is an Israeli committee specifically charged with Judaizing and changing the Palestinian Arab names.
P.S. I have his book – The Role of the Press and Journalistic Discourse in the Arab Palestinian National Struggle, 1929-1939 – on my shelf, actually.
About that committee – no revelation required. It is well known.
But as to who is a-thieving, and stealing and expropriating historical identity, first of all, “Palestinianism” is a model of disinventivity nationalism. Not only do they invent their own narrative but they disinvent Jewish history.
The Tomb of Rachel. Hebron’s Cave of the Patriarchs. The Temple Mount. Jerusalem Denial. The whole UNESCO campaign. All, and the entire Land of Israel, have been the subject of incessant Islamic reinvention.
My home town – Shiloh – became Seilun and the Pal. Minister for Archaeology denies its past.
With “intellectuals” and “academics” as he, they aren’t going anywhere fast.
