'Palestinian academic' denies Jewish connection to Western Wall

A Palestinian Authority university lecturer is the latest PA academic to rewrite history and deny Jewish history in Jerusalem - in particular, the Jewish people's connection to the Western Wall (Wailing Wall) of the Jewish Temple.

Shamekh Alawneh, a lecturer in modern history at Al-Quds Open University, says the Jews invented the connection to the Wall for political purposes, to convince European Jews and Zionists to come to "Palestine."

"It has no historical roots," he said on a television program called Jerusalem - History and Culture. "This is political terminology to win the hearts and the support of the Zionists in Europe, so they would emigrate and come to Palestine. Nothing more!"

The show's interviewer also refers to the "Judaization" of Jerusalem, and to Jewish plots to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Denying Jewish history in Jerusalem and the existence of the Jewish Temple is a central component of PA political ideology. This denial started with Yasser Arafat and continues to be reiterated by academics, politicians and religious leaders.

PA leaders systematically distort the ancient history of Jerusalem, ignoring the vast historical documentation and thousands of archeological finds related to Jewish history that have been found in Jerusalem.

Let's go to the videotape.

By the way Christian readers, he's denying your history too.

Evil is unleashed...

The Palestinians cannot assimilate the fact of Jewish nationalism. After all these decades, there still isn't a single Arab who accepts the legitimacy of Zionism. I'd like to see the clueless dolts of the Israeli Left name one who does.

Carl - your last sentence is what the world needs to see. The Pal nationalism rhetoric is a rebuff of the history of Christianity too!! the world needs to recognize this abhorrent viciousness...

Not a surprise, obviously. No one has ever been able to connect the Arab/Palestinian/Islamic "history" dots since their prophet without magic. What is somewhat of a surprise (and mysterious) though is how international media manages to conveniently ignore these mysterious gaping chasms in timelines and evidence.
