Supreme Muslim Council Recognized Jewish Connection to Temple Mount Jerusalem and the Temple plus Greater Israel belong to the Jewish people‏

Supreme Muslim Council Recognized Jewish Connection to Temple Mount Jerusalem and the Temple plus Greater Israel belong to the Jewish people‏

  • An interesting comment for people to read
    Palestinian identity
    I have been reading recently that a certain Arab speaker is claiming the Palestinians are descendants of the Canaanites who inhabited the land before the Jews took it over, and that these Canaanites originally came from Arabia. This is not true at all. The Canaanites existed long before the Arabs came into existence. They were the descendants of Ham, the son of Noah, who populated that land. One of the Sons of Ham was called Canaan, whose name was given to the land. If in fact the Palestinians are Canaanites………. Why are they not actually calling themselves that? And why are they not calling the land “Canaan” instead of Palestine? The Original Arabs, were descended from Ishmael the first son of Abraham who had taken an Egyptian slave girl as his wife. (i.e. Hagar) The Egyptians were also descended from Ham. Ishmael had taken an Egyptian wife as well and had 12 sons who were the fathers of the 12 Arab tribes. What has happened since then is anyone’s guess. So then…whereas the Jews were descended from Shem, son of Noah and are true Semites….the Arabs are only partly Semitic. I find it interesting that, I as a Canadian can move anywhere in the world and will be considered a Canadian no matter where I go, and a Jew is a Jew….no matter where he lives 

    but if an Arab crosses the border into Israel, he miraculously becomes a “Palestinian.” Is this magic or what? If someone decides to go to war against another people and in the process, lose the battle, all their equipment and even their land, do they have a right to claim it back? Are not those things considered the spoils of war to the victor? At least, that is what I have observed through reading the history of the world. Is that not the risk that an invading army takes when attacking someone? What is it that these Arabs are whining about anyhow that they begrudge the Jews a small sliver of land?

  • A nine-page English-language tourist guide entitled A Brief Guide to al-Haram al-Sharif, published by the Supreme Muslim Council in 1930, contradicts Islamic Wakf officials who currently deny any Jewish connection to the Temple Mount. The guide states that the Temple Mount site "is one of the oldest in the world. Its sanctity dates from the earliest times. 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 Lord, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings."
    The Council was the supreme Muslim body in Jerusalem during the British Mandate for Palestine. Its guide focused primarily on the Muslim connection to the site, which began in 637 A.D. In a description of the area of Solomon's Stables, which Islamic Wakf officials converted into a new mosque in 1996, the guide states: "...little is known for certain about the early history of the chamber itself. 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."
  • Giving control of Temple Mount to Muslims is Unprecedented tolerance or stupidity?

    Israel 2nd war of liberation, In 1967 "One might have expected that the Israelis would immediately expel the Muslims and re-establish control of the single holiest Jewish site. But in an act of what can only be described as unprecedented tolerance, Israel handed over control of the site to the Wakf, the Muslim Religious Trust." The Wakf has abused its control to destroy antiquity and harass Jewish worshipers.

    I beg to differ with the Dayan's decision in 1967. I would not describe Moshe Dayan's act as one of tolerance but of stupidity. What has the Jewish nation gained by this act? Have we been lauded by the press? Have we been praised by our enemies? Or has the desire to wipe us off the map grown? Tolerance? No. Never. Is one tolerant if one offers his family to a seething mob? We suffer today because the Almighty delivered us and we turned our back on Him. 
    The miracle of '67 was His victory as much as our own by his grace. To give the Muslims control of what is ours by divine decree is desecration of G-d. 

    • You are off base - It will not work - The Muslims will never accept a selected neighborhoods only in Jerusalem.
      A statement that explains explains very well the Muslim psyche (based on decades of living in a Muslim society) that radical Islamist's do not operate on a consistent basis of logic and rational 
      reasoning. A warped sense of hurt pride seems to motivate their actions and make them defy reasonable logic and reasoning and twist it till the senseless make sense to them. 

      This is what our society is dealing with. The question is, how do we overcome this mentality.
    • Jerusalem and Temple Mount

      One of the most popular lies that has become universally accepted as if it was an indisputable truth is the myth about Jerusalem being the third sacred place to Islam. It is quite rare to hear the honest truth, that Jerusalem is the First and Only Holiest place to Judaism! As a matter of fact, Jerusalem is not mentioned at all in the Koran, and Muhammad has never been there (perhaps he did not even know about the existence of Jerusalem!). The tale about his dream flight has been related with Jerusalem in a very recent time for political strategy purposes.
      1) The Islamic claim to the Temple Mount is very recent – Jerusalem’s role as “The Third Holiest Site in Islam” in mainstream Islamic writings does not precede the 1930's. It was created by the grand mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini.
      Most of the problems surrounding Jerusalem can be traced to two areas of dispute: the political area that asks Jerusalem to be the capital of both Israel and the hypothetic Palestine; the other and most contentious problem is the holiness of Temple Mount to both Judaism and Islam.
      The role Jerusalem has in the Hebrew Holy Scriptures is well known and not open to debate; however, there are varying opinions on the holiness of Jerusalem, specifically Temple Mount to Islam.
      Many if not most opinions that counter Islam’s claim point out the Jerusalem is not mentioned in the Qur’an and did not occupy any special role in Islam until recent political exigencies transformed Jerusalem into Islam’s “third holy site”. This falsehood was created by the grand mufti, Haj Amin al-Husseini. The mufti knew that nationalist slogans alone would not succeed in uniting the masses against arriving Jewish refugees; he therefore turned the struggle into a religious conflict. He addressed the masses clearly, calling for a holy war. Since the moment when he was appointed to the position of mufti, Haj Amin worked vigorously to raise Jerusalem’s status as an Islamic holy center.
      2) The Islamic claim to Jerusalem is false – There were no mosques in Jerusalem in 632 c.e. at the death of Muhammad… Jerusalem was [then] a Christian-occupied city.
      The Muslim “claim” to Jerusalem is allegedly based on what is written in the Koran, which although does not mention Jerusalem even once, nevertheless talks of the “furthest mosque” (in Sura 17:1): «Glory be unto Allah who did take his servant for a journey at night from the sacred mosque to the furthest mosque». But is there any foundation to the Muslim argument that this “furthest mosque” (al-masujidi al-aqsa) refers to what is today called the Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem? The answer is, NO!
      In the days of Muhammad, who died in 632 of the Common Era, Jerusalem was a Christian-occupied city within the Byzantine Empire. Jerusalem was captured by caliph Omar only in 638 c.e., six years after Muhammad’s death. Throughout all this time there were only churches in Jerusalem, and a church stood on the Temple Mount, called the Church of Saint Mary of Justinian, built in the Byzantine architectural style. The Aqsa mosque was built 20 years after the Dome of the Rock, which was built in 691-692 by caliph Abd el-Malik. The name “Omar mosque” is therefore false. In or around 711, about 80 years after Muhammad died, Malik’s son, Abd el-Wahd ‒who ruled in 705-715‒ reconstructed the Christian-Byzantine Church of St. Mary and converted it into a mosque. He left the structure as it was, a typical Byzantine “basilica” structure with a row of pillars on either side of the rectangular “ship” in the centr. All he added was an onion-like dome on top of the building to make it look like a mosque. He then named it El-Aqsa, so it would sound like the one mentioned in the Koran.
      Consequently, it is crystal clear that Muhammad could never have had this mosque in mind when he wrote the Koran (if he did so), since it did not exist for another three generations after his death. Rather, as many scholars long ago established, it is logical that Muhammad intended the mosque in Mecca as the “sacred mosque”, and the mosque in Medina as the “furthest mosque”. So much for the Muslim claim based on the Aqsa mosque.
      With this understood, it is no wonder that Muhammad issued a strict prohibition against facing Jerusalem in prayer, a practice that had been tolerated only for some months in order to lure Jews to convert to Islam. When that effort failed, Muhammad put an abrupt stop to it on February 624. Jerusalem simply never held any sanctity for the Muslims themselves, but only for the Jews in their domain.
      3) The present Arabic name of Jerusalem is “Al-Quds”… but “Al-Quds” is an abbreviation for “The Jewish Temple”!
