What to Answer Someone Who Says to Stop Repeating the Old Message or Old Rethorics?

I find it strange and yet amusing when someone asks me to stop repeating the old rhetoric or old Habasra slogans, and I must admit, it grinds my gears from time to time. They make it sound like every time I come to a debate. I need to come up with something new.
But I’m sorry, facts don’t evolve. Actually, by definition, if they evolve, they are not facts. This does not mean that what I assumed as fact could not be wrong and thus needs to be changed. But hopefully, if you have some credible respect for history, ideas should not change so much. The challenge is that the Palestinian narrative keeps on evolving. Let’s be honest, before the 80s, there was no such thing as a book about ancient Palestinians.
It feels like the Anti-Israel Marketing Machine comes with new ideas every day. Jesus, apparently, has become a new member of the Palestinian community, and the Palestinians saved Jews from the holocaust. You would think it’s a joke, but as US senator Ilhan Omar retweeted from other prominent anti-Israel advocates that Jesus was a Palestinian. Her buddy Rashida Talib went on a rant about how she felt a calming effect that Palestinians created safe haven for Jews after the Holocaust (which is an obvious lie).
Next time someone tells you to stop old anything, just repeat:
“Yes, facts don’t change. I can’t help that the Anti-Israel Marketing Machine invents something new every day.”
