Jesus Was a Palestinian?

Just a few days ago, a Palestinian provocateur named Linda Sarsour announced on Twitter that, despite what you've heard, "Jesus was [a] Palestinian of Nazareth."

That generated a predictable storm of angry retorts, including one from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahus's son, Yair.

"Are you that stupid?" he exclaimed. "The Bible says that Jesus was born and raised in Judea!"

But Sarsour held her ground, insisting without evidence that Jesus was Palestinian. After all, she announced, "Jesus was born in Bethlehem which is in Palestine."

And that's her point: "Palestine" somehow predates Israel. In her calculus, it existed long before Jewish "settlers" laid any claim to the Holy Land.

Sarsour, a high-profile Muslim Palestinian activist—and the pal of Muslim Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar—is engaging in what's known as the "Big Lie" strategy.

She and others have invented a previously unknown Palestinian past. And for just one purpose: To undermine, delegitimize and destroy Israel.

It's a cynical and deeply anti-Semitic strategy to erase Israel's past and write a new "Holy Land history." Palestinians are already instructing their own young in this new narrative, one in which Palestinians are the central figures—and Jews are the outside intruders, the colonialists, the settlers robbing Palestinians of their made-up glorious past.

+ + Exposing the lies, telling the truth

This is why Christians in Defense of Israel is so needed. With your help, CIDI works every day to tell the amazing truth about Israel. We expose the lies which, if not refuted, will blossom into hatred for Israel and attacks against the Jewish people.

Will you give to help CIDI tell the truth about the Jewish state across America and on Capitol Hill?

When you support CIDI, I want to help you discover the truth about Israel by rushing you a powerful publication exposing anti-Israel "big lies." And when you respond with your gift today, I'll also immediately send you this amazing resource as an E-Book (Kindle or Epub).

This information-packed resource scrutinizes 10 slanders, smears and libels against Israel. It explodes, for example, the bogus claim that the Palestinian people are an ancient civilization who long predate the Jewish people.

That's a claim Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas makes with a straight face—and on the world stage.

+ + Abbas: Palestinians go back 5,000 years

"We are the descendants of the Canaanites who lived in the land of Palestine 5,000 years ago, and continuously remained there to this day," Abbas told the UN Security Council last year.

A Palestinian Authority spokesman went even further, announcing the Palestinian people have a "glorious heritage that goes back to the dawn of humanity."

And like Sarsour, Abbas calls Jesus a Palestinian. Abbas converts the Jewish messiah, the descendant of David, into a pro-Palestinian leader whose "message resonates in our prayers for our people in our capital Jerusalem. . . ."

Likewise, Palestinians convert the Temple Mount—where Jewish temples stood for some 800 years—into an exclusively Muslim holy site.

And UNESCO did its past to erase Israel's history by referring to the Temple Mount—where Solomon prayed and Jesus was presented to the Lord—with exclusively Arab/Muslim names. Instead of "Temple Mount," UNESCO referred to the "Al-Aqsa Mosque/Al-Haram Al-Sharif"—the "Farthest Mosque"/"the Noble Santuary."

This same Israel denial works its way into the American media and our nation's college campuses, too. But working together, we can and MUST expose and defeat the lies used to foment anti-Semitism and delegitimize the nation of Israel.

Will you help CIDI with a generous gift of 25, 50 or 100 dollars today? Your generosity will help us tell the truth about modern Israel and build support for the Jewish state at a time when anti-Semitism is on the rise.

Please make your gift today and I will be excited to rush you our helpful publication, Big Lies: Answers to the Top 10 Slanders, Smears and Libels Against Israel. And when you respond today, I'll also immediately send you via email the E-Book version (Kindle or Epub) of this powerful resource.

No one should fall for the drivel Abbas, Sarsour and other anti-Semitic liars are peddling—get Big Lies today.
