Palestinian TV: Psalms Were Written by Christian Crusaders
In keeping with the anti-Semitic/anti-Zionist meme of the Palestinian people, Dr. Hayel Sanduqa declared on PA TV that the Psalms, particularly, “If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, may my right hand forget its skill” was written by a Christian Crusader and not King David.
The following are the words of Palestinian researcher Dr. Hayel Sanduqa on PA TV, claiming that the Hebrew Bible’s psalm was actually first said by a Crusader:
“[The Israelis] have acted to change Jerusalem’s character. Even the expression (Psalm 137:5) ‘If I forget thee, oh Jerusalem, may my right hand forget its skill. May my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth, if I do not remember thee.’
This statement, said by the Frankish [Crusader] ruler of Acre shortly before he left, was borrowed by the Zionist movement, which falsified it in the name of Zionism.” TV (Fatah), June 2, 2011]
What angers me about this (other than the obvious lie of it) is that it doesn’t seem to be something that Muslims believe or were ever taught. The Psalms in Islam are known as the Zabur and excusing my Wiki reference
Zabur (Arabic: زبور) is, according to Islam, the holy book of Dawud (David), one of the holy books revealed by God before the Qur’an, alongside others such as the Tawrat (Torah) of Musa (Moses) and the Injil (Gospel) of Isa (Jesus).
Zabur, btw, is translated to mean “sing/song” or “music” or “sing praise”.
These are educated, Palestinian people, a doctor and researcher, not Hamas, who goes on his local TV to spread anti-Semitic propaganda and no one stops him. No one edits or corrects him. There is no rebuttal.
These people incite the violence that leads others to kill. They very purposefully do not acknowledge that their own religion recognizes the Torah, the Psalms and Gospels and by whom they were written. They seek to rile up the masses to continue a never ending war with the Jews.
Ok, well this is not from the Psalms, but from two very talented fellows named Y-Love and DeScribe, Chasidic rappers, who are singing about this very Psalm, “If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, may my right hand forget its skill.”
