Seven years ago, when Ehud Barak was Prime Minister and negotiating away Israel’s future the rumors were flying that he had agreed to give away the temple mount. Today the rumors were confirmed
According to a document brought out of mothballs seven years after it was signed, Defense Minister Ehud Barak – then Prime Minister of Israel – agreed to transfer the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, Judaism’s holiest site, to Arab sovereignty.
The document entitled “The Status of the Diplomatic Process with the Palestinians – Points to Update the Incoming Prime Minister” outlined the many points of disagreement between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), but noted significant agreement on at least three core issues.
The report say that Israel was to to annex 4 to 6% of Judea and Samaria for Jewish settlement, with 94-96% of the region going to a PA state, providing that Israel allow all PLO Arabs free passage through Israel. The Temple Mount would go to the PLO, with the Western Wall, the City of David, the Mount of Olives and other holy sites being given to Israel.

By agreeing to give up the holiest site in all of Judaism Barak started down the path of severing the legitimacy between the Jewish people and the Jewish Homeland. He undermined the relationship between Jews everywhere and the State of Israel. Shame on Barak and shame on the the Labor Party for having him as their leader.
