“Palestinian” Authority claims: “Muslims have the absolute right to the Western Wall (the holiest place in Judaism) and there is not even one rock there that dates back to the period of King Solomon, as the Jews claim.”
PALWATCH FYI: The Western Wall – is a small remnant of the large retaining wall built by King Herod to support the Temple Mount of the Second Temple. It is not connected to Solomon’s Temple as PA TV claims. There are no known remains of the First Temple itself, but many artifacts from the First Temple period including many stamps with the names of Biblical figures have been found in the vicinity of the Western Wall and the City of David in Jerusalem. The Temple Mount including the Western Wall is Judaism’s holiest site.
According to the delusional Muslims today,“Islam’s Prophet Muhammad is said to have ridden during his Night Journey from Mecca to “al aqsa mosque”, i.e., “the farthest mosque” (Quran, Sura 17), and there tied his miraculous flying steed named Al-Buraq to a “stone” or a “rock.” (Jami` at-Tirmidhi, Book 47, Hadith 3424). In the 1920’s, Arab Mufti Haj Amin Al-Husseini decided to identify the Western Wall of the Temple in Jerusalem as that “rock” or “stone,” and since then Muslims refer to the Western Wall as the “Al-Buraq Wall.”
Muslims declare that Jews praying at the holiest site in Judaism is “sin and filth.”
