From the PLO Negotiations Affairs Department Twitter account:
The "Palestinian Revolt of 1929" is the heroic term that the current Palestinian leadership - including CNN darling Saeb Erekat, who heads the PLO-NAD - gives to the massacre of over 100 Jews throughout the land of Israel in 1929.
Even according to Palestinian histories, the worst crime they can accuse the Jews of was putting up a temporary screen at the Kotel between male and female worshipers on Yom Kippur of 1928, something which had been done in previous years. So, of course, they had to start stabbing Jews to death in Hebron, Jerusalem, Safed and elsewhere in 1929.
In Arabic, it was never called the "Palestinian Revolt" because the Arabs who rioted did not call themselves Palestinians. Instead, it was known as the "Buraq Revolution," Buraq being the name they give the Western Wall over the past century. So besides glorifying the murders of Jews as a heroic revolt, the PLO is renaming the massacre to make it sound like it was a "Palestinian" issue.
