'Palestinians' claim Jerusalem, Hebron and others had Arabic names

In yet another bid to deny the reality of Jewish history, the 'Palestinians' are telling their 'people' that Jerusalem, Hebron and several other cities originally had Arabic names.
As part of this rewriting of history, a regular columnist on religious affairs in the official PA daily recently made the false claim that the Jews changed the original Arabic names of places in Israel into Hebrew names. Is'haq Feleifel cited six cities that he said originally had Arabic names, when in fact all of those names appear in the Hebrew Bible long before Arabic names were given:

Jerusalem, capital of the nation of Israel/Judea (1000 BCE - 70 CE), mentioned 670 times in the Hebrew Bible. First reference: Joshua 10:1;
Hebron, first capital of the tribe of Judah, mentioned 73 times in the Hebrew Bible. First reference: Genesis 13:18;
Atarot, mentioned four times in the Hebrew Bible. First reference: Numbers 32:3;
Shechem, capital of Israel after the nation divided [922 BCE], mentioned 64 times in the Hebrew Bible (including a small number of references to two people of that name). First reference: Genesis 33:18;
Ashkelon, a Philistine city, mentioned nine times in the Hebrew Bible. First reference: Judges 1:18

The sixth city he mentioned, Tel Aviv, is also mentioned in the Bible [Ezekiel 3:15] as a location in Babylon where Jews settled after being exiled from Judea in 586 BCE. That name is the source for today's Tel Aviv. All these Biblical names predate by many years the names the PA religion teacher claims are the original Arabic names.

The following is from the article by the official PA daily's columnist on religious affairs, Is'haq Feleifel:

"The great and exalted Allah commanded the angel Gabriel to place Muhammad upon the riding beast [named] Al-Buraq, which was a cross between horse and donkey. The night journey was both physical and spiritual... Once he [Muhammad] reached the Al-Aqsa Mosque, (PMW note: the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem was not yet built in the time of Muhammad. The "night journey" mentioned in the Quran is dated to 621 CE. The mosque was built on the Temple Mount by the son of Ummayad Caliph Abd Al-Malik 84 years later in 705 CE.) the angel Gabriel removed Muhammad from upon Al-Buraq's back, and then he tied the beast to the Al-Buraq rock, which was called the 'Al-Buraq Wall'. The Jews changed its name to the 'Wailing Wall', because the Jews are always trying to change Arabic names into Hebrew names, especially when it comes to prayer sites or names of towns and villages. For example, they call Al-Quds 'Jerusalem'; Al-Khalil [they call] 'Hebron'; Atara - 'Atarot, Nablus - 'Shechem', Tel Al-Rabi'a - 'Tel Aviv'(PMW note: 'Rabi'a' is the Arabic translation of the Hebrew word 'aviv', meaning 'spring'); Askelan - Ashkelon. There is not enough room to list all the names which have been replaced with false names. Even the 'Torah' falsified, changed and forged; this is the way of the Jews - they always try to change the real names to other, false names, in order to erase the [historical] facts."

Read the whole thing.

It's amazing watching the Muslims accuse others of doing precisely what they do - attempt to steal other nations' heritage and claim it as their own (ask the Hindus in India, who suffer from the same Muslim behavior).

What the Palestinians don't mention is virtually the Arabic names are simply transliiterations of the original Hebrew names! And Nablus, the exception, is simply the Arabic rendering of the Latin name Neapolis, given by the Romans to Schechem.

If they were honest, they would acknowledge the Jewish claim to Eretz Israel predates theirs by thousands of years!

As long as Israel does not link continuing negotiations or delaying reunification of west and east Israel to an end to anti-Semitic incitement, then the incitement will continue.

But is it so surprising that "the Muslims" "change the real names"? Not really. After all "the Muslims" also eat off the floor, fart continually, and obsessively lick their privates in public. And It is a known fact that their men are defective, their women ugly, and their children idiots.

Oh, and their "prophet" had sex with donkeys.
