(CNSNews.com) – Palestinian Authority chief negotiator Saeb Erekat said Wednesday he found “distasteful” Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s invoking of the Bible to highlight the longstanding Jewish claim to Jerusalem.

The veteran P.A. official made the comment after Netanyahu noted during a special parliamentary session marking “Jerusalem Day” that the words “Jerusalem” and “Zion” appeared in the Old Testament, the Jewish Tanakh, 850 times.

Why because some muslim was offended that Netanyahu used the Bible as the basis for Israel’s claim on Jeruselam? And the answer to that is the qurap that is printed in the quron is just that qurap.

And what do the Muslims base their claim to Jerusalem. Oh yeah, the Koran and the Haddith.

You can't make this stuff up.

Jerusalem is found over 800 times in the Bible, while in the Qur’an it occurs a grand total of zero.

Bibi’s Torah beat up the Muzzy’s Koran and the Muzzy feels crying like a girl.

Reacting to the comments, Erekat told Reuters later, “I find it very distasteful, this use of religion to incite hatred and fear.

Holy crap! Where do you even start with a statement like this! "This use of religion to incite hatred and fear?" Gee, that exactly what the palis, arabs, and mulsims have been doing throughout history!

Mohammed was just the advance man for L. Ron Hubbard. If you want to be rich and powerful, just start a false “religion.”

Does he have an email address? Is he unaware of what is taught in their kindergartens? I doubt it.

The Quran also acknowledges Jewish claims to Israel and Jerusalem, and foretells of our ultimate return. It’s all in Sura 14, I think.
