No surprise here. As I explain at length in my forthcoming book Not Peace But A Sword, which should be out later this year, Islam appropriates the Biblical prophets and claims that they were Muslims who taught Islam (cf. Qur’an 3:67, regarding Abraham), and that their followers wickedly perverted their teachings to create Judaism and Christianity.
Note also: this comes from Fatah, showing yet again how hollow their reputation of being “moderate” really is. For this represents the full delegitimization of Judaism, rendering Jews renegades who have rejected the truth, and enemies of Allah.
“Moses was a Muslim who led Muslims in Exodus from Egypt, says PA university lecturer on PA TV,” by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik for Palestinian Media Watch, April 2:
…The following is the interview with Dr. Omar Ja’ara, lecturer at Al-Najah University in Nablus and specialist in Israeli affairs, on PA TV religion program:
“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.”
