Some interesting accusations against Jews, made by the professor of literature and thought at al-Azhar University in Cairo, Dr. Muhammad Bakr al-Bouji.

Dr. Muhammad Bakr al-Bouji, professor of literature and thought at al-Azhar University in Gaza, is accusing Israel of stealing Palestinian heritage, beginning with their traditional dress, and the six-pointed star, and even the shekel coin in circulation in Israel, and registering all this under its own name with UNESCO.

The professor of literature and thought at al-Azhar University in Cairo, Dr. Muhammad Bakr al-Bouji, spent a great deal of time and effort in research, study, and many hours reading and pondering before releasing the results of his research to the Palestinians and the Arab nation, which condemn Israel and expose it as "a nation which has stolen from the heritage and history (of others) in order to make an entity and identity for itself--not its own identity and not its own history." He said this, stressing that he is attempting, through his research, to combat, intellectually and historically, the entity supported by UNESCO "in its theft"...

Hamza al-Buhaysi from "Elaph" met with Dr. al-Bouji in his office at al-Azhar University, and had the following discussion with him:

(al-Buhaysi): When did Israel begin to steal Palestinian heritage and literature?

(al-Bouji): Our conversation comes 100 years too late after the Jewish action against Palestinian heritage. However, there is a conscious awakening that began after the year 1967, when Palestinians and Arabs noticed that the Israelis had stolen almost everything from their heritage, and registered it with the international organization for human heritage "UNESCO" in the name of Israel, as Israeli heritage. The Jews began this movement in the end of the 19th century, when they sent their European professors and researchers to Palestine to study this heritage in order to steal it. The majority of the studies performed by orientalists in the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century supported Zionism. The inevitable result of these studies was to say that the customs and traditions of the people in Palestine stemmed from the Torah, for they wanted to tie these customs and traditions to the Jewish existence in Palestine.
