Official 'Palestinian' television denies existence of Jewish Temples

This week, the official television station of the 'Palestinian Authority' denied the existence of the two Jewish Temples on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, in an effort to deny the Jewish connection to the city of Jerusalem and the land of Israel. Let's go to the videotape of the music video that was shown by the 'moderates' from Fatah on their official television station this week:



And here's more on the story from Palestinian Media Watch.
A music video currently broadcast on Palestinian Television denies any historical connection between the Jewish people and Jerusalem: "Oh [Sons of] Zion, no matter how much you dig and no matter how much you destroy, your imaginary Temple will not come into being". The repeated refrain, "Al-Aqsa is ours," is meant to emphasize this statement, as the Al-Aqsa mosque is built on the site of the Temple, destroyed in the year 70 during Israel's revolt against the Roman Empire.

The video images focus on the Al-Aqsa Mosque and praying Muslims, and together with the lyrics repeat the Palestinian fabrication that Israel is planning to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque and therefore it needs protection: "Oh God, protect Al-Aqsa, Oh Allah, Al-Aqsa is ours, [protect Al-Aqsa] from every thief and every oppressor."

The clip includes pictures to identify the "thief and oppressor" - Jews wearing skullcaps, Israeli police and military, Israeli excavations of Old Jerusalem, the Israeli flag, and the Western Wall. The clip sings for another Saladin, the Muslim conqueror of Jerusalem in 1187, to appear: "How you [Al-Aqsa] suffer! How you have bled for years! How you scream! How you call out to the millions! What are you hoping for, who are you crying for? Saladin!"

The video was broadcast this week on Palestinian TV, the same day that a Jerusalem Arab injured 20 Israelis in a terror attack in Jerusalem. PA TV, which is under the authority of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, and Hamas TV have shown this clip intermittently during the last 18 months, and it constitutes part of a prolonged hate campaign against Israel. The campaign denies the historical fact of the connection between the Jewish people, Jerusalem and the Temple Mount, while infusing hatred and fear by pretending that Islam's holy site, as well as its adherents, are in great danger.

These are the complete words of the song:

"Al-Aqsa [Mosque] is ours, Oh Muslims, Al-Aqsa is ours, our Al-Aqsa screams and shouts, Al-Aqsa is ours. Oh Arabs and Muslims, no, no, Al-Aqsa is ours. Oh [Sons of] Zion, no matter how much you dig and no matter how much you destroy, your imaginary Temple will not come into being, Al-Aqsa is ours. Al-Aqsa is ours, Oh Muslims, Al-Aqsa is ours. My land, my Jerusalem, my blood and my honor will not be scorned. Al-Aqsa is ours, how you suffer! How you have bled for years! How you scream! How you call out to the millions! What are you hoping for, who are you crying for? Saladin [Muslim conqueror of Jerusalem in 1187] ! Al-Aqsa is ours. Oh Lord, protect Al-Aqsa, Oh Allah, Al-Aqsa is ours, [protect Al-Aqsa] from every thief and every oppressor. Oh Allah, Al-Aqsa is ours. Al-Aqsa is ours, Oh Muslims, Al-Aqsa is ours."
The more things change, the more they stay the same.

By the way, for my Christian friends, if there were no Jewish Temples, where did Jesus meet the moneychangers? It's not just our history the 'Palestinians' are denying - it's yours too (and yes, Jews believe that Jesus existed: there are references to him in the Talmud, many of which were wiped out by censorship over the years, but we still know where they belong).

so now the palestinian authority are officially idiots (not that we needed any more proof than we already have).

For what it's worth, the New Testament talks plenty about the Temple.

I don't know of any credible Christian who denies the Temple existed.

I didn't know that passages concerning Jesus in the Talmud were censored. Can you tell me more about it? That is really fascinating.

If the Temples never existed, would someone please tell us what exactly the Babylonians and the Romans did destroy?

Too bad there are hundreds of Babylonian, Greek and Roman sources that tell of the 2 Temples.

And one day the world will sing of the 3rd Temple.

Scherzo,

Many passages about Jesus were removed from the Talmud so as not to offend the Church. I have an entire book of them (it's a pamphlet that runs about 80 pages of small print).

I did not take that song as saying there were no past Temples; rather, I took it as saying there would not be a future Temple.

(I've never heard of a single Christian, not one, who denied the Temples existed; though there are many anti-Israel Christians who conveniently deny that the Temples existed in the location of the area now covered with the Muslim abominations.)
