Ahlan Wa Sahlan

No offense to anyone or anything, but Arabs have made some pretty ludicrous claims in the past. We’ve heard everything from claims that Mossad agents called Jews who worked at the Twin Towers and told them to stay home on 9/11, to routinely blaming everything on Jews, all the way to the recent allegation that President George Bush is a Jew. These ridiculous claims have often made us shake our heads with incredulity or react in awe at how anyone could come up with such spectacular crap.

Claims made on a recent Palestine Authority TV program seem to have topped everything however.

The Jewish people have no connection to Israel, the Hebrews of the Old Testament were actually Arabs, the prophets in the Bible were Muslim, Solomon’s Temple was not built by Israelites but by Arab Canaanites, and the entire Bible is an invention of the Jews, according to a recent educational program aired on Palestinian Authority TV, a translation of which was obtained by WorldNetDaily.

Two senior PA historians, Dr. Jarir Al-Qidwa, head of the PA public library and Arafat’s advisor on education, and Dr. Issam Sissalem, senior historian and former head of history at PA University, were guests on the featured program and described in detail their assertion that Jewish history is part of a Zionist conspiracy. Both said any Jewish connection to Israel is actually a Muslim connection, even though Islam wasn’t founded at the time of the biblical Hebrews.

So what… does that mean that I am actually an Arab Muslim? Holy cow – I have lots of work to do then. Uh… gotta register www.arablicious.com, think of irreverent, Muslim-related stories, change my name. Oy. So much to do! Oh… scratch the oy…

Shabbat Salaam Aleikoum!

  • I think it’s terrible that you would provide a link to an Anti-Muslin website. That site, Islamicanews.com is clearly a mockery of Islam, and of it’s followers. By including that link in your article, you have reduced your website to being just as guilty and horrendous as websites such as Jewwatch.org. It’s no wonder anti-Semitism is such a problem…this is hypocrisy at its worst.

  • Wow. God forbid! Nothing could be further from the truth. I take it you are not really familiar with Islamica News and the Islamica network. Here, let me quote from their ““About Us” section:

    Islamica further differentiates itself from other companies by focusing on an emerging generation of Muslims in non-Muslim environments. As many Muslims found themselves in a reactionary state post-9/11, Islamica continued with its pre-9/11 scheme of providing young Muslims with a vital identity. Islamica’s apparel offers Muslims to express their identity through contemporary styles and humorous messages.

    Founded in 1999 by Mirza Baig, Azher Ahmed and Afeef Abdul-Majeed, Islamica was the first company to address the needs of an emerging generation of Muslims. Islamica has grown and established itself as the premiere outlet for style and comedy amongst Muslims.

    Unfortunately, the creators haven’t updated the news section in forever. However, you can still buy cool tshirts and hoodies in their islamicashop, check it out! Oh and you can also check out their very active message board in case you don’t believe me. Islamica Network has nothing to do with Muslim bashing.

    So before you go throwing accusations around, do your research. The one thing that could have saved you from looking like a total idiot, was right there in the “About Us” link. All you had to do was click and read.

    What a dumbass.
