Old and busted: Jesus was a palestinian
New hotness: Moses was a Muslim
“We must make clear to the world that David in the Hebrew Bible is not connected to David in the Quran, Solomon in the Hebrew Bible is not connected to Solomon in the Quran, and neither is Saul or Joshua son of Nun [of the Bible].
We have a great leader, Saul, [in the Quran] who defeated the nation of giants and killed Goliath. This is a great Muslim victory. The Muslims of the Children of Israel went out of Egypt under the leadership of Moses, and unfortunately, many researchers deny the Exodus of those oppressed people who were liberated by a great leader, like Moses the Muslim, the believing leader, the great Muslim,
who was succeeded by Saul, the leader of these Muslims in liberating Palestine.
This was the first Palestinian liberation through armed struggle to liberate Palestine from the nation of giants led by Goliath. This is our logic and this is our culture.”[PA TV (Fatah), Feb. 15, 2012]
Remember, this is from our “peace partners.” If they are willing to lie about history, they sure as hell are willing to lie about their true intentions.
In the meantime, if they want to stick to this version, I helpfully suggest that a certain Egyptian legal scholar sue them.
Brian of London adds: Understand that he is not lying, he really believes what he is saying. The goal is never to prove that he’s wrong with western logic, the goal must be to understand how his views shape his world view and his actions. And then extend that to the many millions (even a billion) who can be led to believe this.
Moses was a Muslim who led the Children of Israel (who were all Muslim) out of slavery in Egypt and into Israel.
That is fundamental: don’t agree with it, think about the implications of believing it. The substitution of the word Palestine for Israel is also largely irrelevant and recent. The whole ethos of Islam is a replacement theology: it’s a massive identity theft and it’s the Jewish identity (largely) that’s being stolen. Better people than me will write extensively on this, when they do I’ll pass it on here. If you can understand this, you will understand one of the most fundamental parts of the implacability of Islam toward the Jews.
