Palestinian Negotiator tells Livni, "We were in Israel before Yehoshua Bin Nun"

The Chief Palestinian negotiator told Israeli Justice Minister Tzipi Livni over the weekend that asking him to accept Israel as a Jewish state would be changing “the narrative,” and that is not possible because Palestinian occupation pre-dates the Jews by some 5,500 years. ( reports that, in a meeting at the Munich Security Conference, negotiator Saeb Erekat told Livni that “When you say, ‘Accept Israel as a Jewish state,’ you are asking me to change my narrative.”
Erekat went on to say that his ancestry dates back to the Canaanites, who called the area home for “5,500 years before Joshua Bin-Nun came and burned down my hometown, Jericho.”
