God save us from the moderates, and ourselves: Official leading peace talks claims Israel trying to 'invent' historical Jerusalem link

JERUSALEM - The Jewish Temples never existed and Israel has been working to "invent" a Jewish historical connection to Jerusalem, the chief Palestinian negotiator asserted.

Ahmed Qurei, the Palestinian Authority official leading all peace talks with the Jewish state, made the controversial statements in a small media briefing Wednesday attended by WND as well as by a Palestinian media outlet and an Arab affairs correspondent for a major Israeli newspaper.

But the Israeli publication decided not to print Qurei's comments, while the Palestinian publication, the Al-Ayam daily newspaper, made news of the remarks.

Qurei said "Israeli occupation authorities are trying to find a so-called Jewish historical connection" between Jerusalem and the Temple Mount, "but all these attempts will fail. The [Temple Mount] is 100 percent Muslim."

"The world must be mobilized against all these Israeli attempts to change the symbols and signs of Jerusalem," he said. "There is nothing Jewish about the Al Aqsa Mosque. There was no so-called Jewish Temple. It's imaginary. Jerusalem is 100 percent Muslim."

Continued Qurei: "The Arab world is called to interfere to stop the Israeli plans in Jerusalem, to stop the Israeli attempts to create a Jewish character to Jerusalem and the Al Aqsa mosque. Also to the Old City, which is the first step in the war to defend Jerusalem and Al Aqsa.

"They are competing against time in order to create facts on ground in the surrounding the imaginary Temple," Qurei added.

The chief Palestinian negotiator was reacting to the reopening last month of a long-closed synagogue just 100 meters from the Temple Mount. The holy structure, located in what is now known as the Muslim Quarter, was abandoned in 1938 in the wake of extreme Arab violence targeting Jews. At the time, thousands of Jews lived in the Quarter. The synagogue is closer than any other Jewish house of prayer to the Temple Mount...

Klein goes on to detail the Jewish history of the site.

» Fayad Joins the Jerusalem Denial Parade at the blog Solomonia

It's not just Ahmed Qurei. The much vaunted, very definition of moderate, Salaam Fayad, has joined the parade in what is clearly a policy decision on the part of the Palestinian Arabs to insult the world's intelligence and deny any... Read More


For years I was amused by Arab and Islamic fantasy history about Israel. I'm not amused by it anymore. No matter what is known and supported archeologically as fact about Jewish history in Israel, most of the world does not want the facts to be facts. Eventually they will simply refuse to accept them as such. Israel throws a huge monkey in the wrench of the secular morality of the world. It is telling that Islam poses no such complication.

Muslims even claim that Moses was a Muslim!

Islam hijacks other religions, hijacks the holy sites of other religions (Jews, Hindus) and Islamicises them.

Islam is a Borg.

actually the problem is not denying the existince of the temple , its prooving its existince.

How the question shifted from prooving the existance to prooving the deniance is interesting.

reading the jeweish texts will see that the tebrnacle was protable in the first place, meaning it can be moved and assembled at any time.

so then its was established at the mount.

and eventually got destroyed.

so this leads to the points:

1) the temple can be portable and be anywhere.
2) it was destroyed(as said) and nothing left of the rocks because the resdents around the temple used the rocks for their personaal use.

the second point leads to questiioning if the temple was really destroyed, why is nothing left, while the wailing wall is left not touched.

this means that either there was nothing destroyed in the first place.....or that the wailing wall is something else.

another point is that why did the people around the temple use the rocks and stones, didnt they have religous respect for the place.

on the other hand if it is claimed by jewish people that this land is a for them through a deed from god...then isnt it bieng destroyed resembels a punishment and theirfore they loose the cliam.

so lets proove its existance and existance of everything else before indulging in whishfull thinking ........

i really dont like this type of confrontation but since people indulge of question everything in islam..... then believe me its harder to proof your claims first.

pyramids and ziggurets built at places of harsher weather conditions and cliamte still exist.....the scope of destruction a thing in that size is not easy to digest.

Ahmed Qurei is denied from basic the its only natural to hit back.
