A Defending Crusader…

The best defense is to be good and offensive…or something like that.

What if…

What if one could produce hard evidence that the Arabs in Palestine really DO believe that the Temple Mount (what they call their “Noble Sanctuary”, al-haram al-sharif) was actually stolen from the Jews?  The vocal propagandists loudly proclaim that the Jews have no ties to Jerusalem, let alone the whole of Israel, and that their temple never existed.

But what if we can prove that the current shrill really is just false propaganda?

Maybe we can find out, now that Israel National News has published this.

Supreme Moslem Council: Temple Mount is Jewish

(IsraelNN.com) The widely-disseminated Arab Moslem position that the Temple Mount is not Jewish has been debunked – by the Supreme Moslem Council (Waqf) of Jerusalem, in a Temple Mount guide published in 1925.

In fact, back in 1925, the Supreme Moslem Council – also known as the Waqf, which has overseen Temple Mount activities on behalf of the Moslem religion for hundreds of years – boasted proudly that the site was none other than that of Solomon’s Temple.

The Jerusalem-based Temple Institute (http://www.templeinstitute.org) reports that it has acquired a copy of the official 1925 Supreme Moslem Council Guide Book to Al-Haram Al-Sharif (the Moslem name for the Temple Mount).  On page 4, the Waqf states, “Its identity with the site of Solomon’s Temple is beyond dispute. This, too, is the spot, according to universal belief, on which ‘David built there an altar unto the L-rd…’, citing the source in 2 Samuel XXIV,25.

In addition, on page 16, the pamphlet makes reference to the underground area in the south-east corner of the Mount, which is refers to as Solomon’s Stables.  “Little is known for certain of the history of the chamber itself,” the guide reads. “It dates probably as far back as the construction of Solomon’s Temple. According to Josephus, it was in existence and was used as a place of refuge by the Jews at the time of the conquest of Jerusalem by Titus in the year 70 A.D.”

Yes, perhaps we can now stop hearing the history-revising shills coming from the “Palestinians”.  Perhaps, but I doubt it.  They’ve a long history of ignoring the truth when it conflicts with their agenda.
