Facts, history, and evidence are no match for this type of pure, unadulterated hatred.

The Palestinian Authority’s Minister of Culture Atef Abu Saif recently went on his regime’s official televised propaganda outlet to claim that “Israel celebrate[s] the lie of ‘3,000 years [of Jewish history] in Jerusalem.”

According to Saif’s false version of events, “There is nothing in history that proves this presence. They have not found one stone… [Israel knows] that they have no connection to [Jerusalem], that they have no connection to this history, and that they have no connection to the geography, just as they have no connection to the future.”

While Saif enjoys a cushy PA government job, Hamas leaders apparently are not fans, allegedly sending henchmen from the terror group last March to beat him within an inch of his life. During the incident, Saif had his fingers broken, “a recognized punishment for writers” in Palestinian society according to a report of the incident in the UK’s Guardian newspaper
