Here is an excerpt from a blistering Knesset speech by deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely to Arab members of the Knesset yesterday:



From her press release:
In a highly charged debate that developed in the plenum tonight (Wednesday) in the framework of a motion on the subject of UNESCO's decision on Hebron and the Cave of the Patriarchs, Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely responded on behalf of the government to the Arab Knesset members, by presenting two books: one being the Bible and the second "A History of the Palestinian People: From Ancient Times to the Modern Era," by Assaf Voll.

Deputy Minister Hotovely said: "What is happening here is a process of stealing Jewish history on the part of the Palestinians via international forums. I recommend to UNESCO and to the Arab Knesset members to read these two books, the Bible which tells the story of the Jewish people, and Assaf Voll's new bestseller, "A History of the Palestinian People: From Ancient Times to the Modern Era." It will captivate you because it is empty, because the Palestinians don't have kings and they don't have heritage sites. The Palestinians are appropriating Jewish heritage sites and displacing them just as they are are trying to change the Western Wall into an Islamic site and just like they are attempting to sever the connection of the Jews to the Temple Mount. "
It is a shame that so few Jews nowadays speak so clearly about Jewish heritage in Israel and how the Palestinians are the ones who have the fake history.
