Gaza Post – Palestinian Authority
Palestinian Authority has condemned in a recent statement a tweet by Israeli Prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu about the Jewish people's connection to the "Land of Israel".
Netanyahu claimed in his tweets that "Philistine" is in southern Europe and there is no connection between the Philistines and Palestinian Arabs.
“Palestinians’ connection to the Land of Israel is nothing compared to the 4,000-year-connection that the Jewish people have with this land,” he said.
In another tweet, he wrote, "There’s no connection between the ancient Philistines and the modern Palestinians, whose ancestors came from the Arabian Peninsula to the Land of Israel thousands of years later."
"Netanyahu misleading remarks are just an attempt to deny the national existence of Palestinians in their homelands," PA’s foreign affairs bureau noted.
