If Olmert has its way and Jerusalem is Divided…you will never again be able to travel to the Jewish holy sites in Eastern Jerusalem, because the Arabs do not believe that there are any Jewish Holy Sites in east Jerusalem…or that any part of Jerusalem was ever Jewish …but don’t listen to me, listen to them:

  • For 34 years they [Jews] have dug tunnels, the most dangerous of which is the great tunnel. They found not a single stone proving that the Temple of Solomon was there, because historically the Temple was not in Palestine [at all]. They found only remnants of a shrine of the Roman Herod. (Translation: MEMRI) Yassir Arafat Oct. 5, 2002
  • Nabil Sha’ath of the Palestinian Legislative Council and senior advisor to President Mahmoud Abbas who previously was chief negotiator in Israeli-Palestinian talks labels the Jewish temple as “fictitious.” He said: [The Israelis] are insisting on sovereignty over the Al-Aqsa mosque on the pretext that an Israeli Temple is buried beneath it and that, through their continued sovereignty, they can one day unearth it…Their claim was not substantiated by the excavations they carried out around and under the mosque. [Voice of Palestine Radio Station, July 26, 2000]
  • Ikrima Sabri, until recently the Palestinian Authority-appointed mufti of Jerusalem and the highest ranking Islamic clerical authority in the PA, insists Jews have no connection to any part of the Temple Mount, including the Western Wall. In 1997, he proclaimed: The Al-Buraq Wall [Western Wall] and its plaza are a Muslim religious property, and the Israeli government’s decisions do not affect it…The Al-Buraq Wall is part of the Al Aqsa Mosque. The Jews have no relation to it. (Al Ayam, Nov. 22, 1997)

In 2000, he reiterated this in an Israeli-Arab weekly:: No stone of the Al-Buraq [the Western] Wall has any relation to Judaism. [Kul Al-Arab, August 18, 2000] And a few months later, he gave an interview to a German daily in which he again asserted:

There is not [even] the smallest indication of the existence of a Jewish Temple on this place in the past. In the whole city, there is not even a single stone indicating Jewish history… The Jews cannot legitimately claim [the Western] wall, neither religiously nor historically. The Committee of the League of Nations recommended in 1930, to allow the Jews to pray there, in order to keep them quiet. But by no means did it acknowledge that the wall belongs to them. [Die Welt, January 17, 2001]

In 2002, Sabri wrote a booklet, entitled Palestine – the Human Factor and the Land which was published in Egypt in August 2002. In it, he used as evidence the anti-Semitic forgery “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion”to support his allegation that the Jews have for centuries been secretly plotting to take over Palestine. He denied any Jewish historic connection and right to the land, labelling the Jewish Temple built by Solomon as “imaginary.”

  • Historian and former Arafat advisor Jarar al Qidwa makes similar assertions: Solomon’s Temple, I believe, was built by the Canaanites who were the neighbors of the Israelis, the Israelites… I want to state several words clearly: the Bible became an archival document, not representing what the Israelis and the first Jews were, but what they thought they were, what they imagined. The Temple is the fruit of their imagination. In any case, when our nation or our Canaanite forefathers came to Palestine, they built the Temple… a temple in Jerusalem… …The issue of the temple is a Zionist innovation. No one said that the temple that was built in Jerusalem, neither the Canaanite nor Roman, no one said that it was in the place of the [Islamic] Al Haram.” (PA TV, Aug. 2, 2004) Source for all of the Above quotes Jerusalem: Arab Denial of Jewish Ties CAMERA

If you read the entire CAMERA article referenced above it is obvious that its not only the Palestinians believing this rubbish but most of the Muslim world..and people believe that the PA will care for Jewish Holy Sites. Not in this reality. They destroy them the same way they destroyed Joseph’s tomb. And Jews will never be allowed to visit them again…the same way we were not allowed to visit the Jordanian controlled sites before 1967. Ladies and Gentleman, THAT is the future of Jerusalem if Olmert gets his way. A Jerusalem without Jews and eventually without Christians either. A future where Jewish and Christian Holy Sites are destroyed.
