PA TV: "Moses Was a Muslim"

(Palestinian Media Watch) Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik - Dr. Omar Ja'ara, a lecturer at Al-Najah University in Nablus, said on PA TV on Feb. 15, 2012, that Moses, a Muslim, brought "the Muslims of the Children of Israel out of Egypt." He refers to the subsequent Israeli conquest of the Land of Israel as the "first Palestinian liberation...of Palestine," led not by Joshua, as the Bible tells, but by Saul (Talut) who is also said to have slayed Goliath. While some of this is retelling of Islamic tradition, some is a distortion of the Koran for political purposes. The Koran never refers to anyone as "Palestinians."
