Al Jizz can never be accused of being objective – or credible.
In this recent interview with the fishy-sounding “historian” Salman Abu Sitta, they push some ridiculous, easily refutable lies.
“There is a natural right for anybody from any faith: Muslim, Christian or Jew, to live there [Jerusalem] and worship peacefully.” — Historian Salman Abu Sitta

“It’s Muslim and Christian population have been living there for thousands of years.”
- Christianity: began in first century CE (approx. 2,000 years ago) from Judaism, but have been present in “Palestine” since around 450 CE only (approx. 1,600 years ago)
- Islam: began in early 7th century CE (approx. 1,400 years ago)
And while we are at it
“Jerusalem is Palestinian longer than London is English”
Anglo-Saxon settlements developed in London since the year 500 CE – before Islam.
By the way, nice suspenders Salmon.
But it is the suspension of our disbelief you are counting on.
