Your tax dollars at work: 'Palestinian Authority' does 'study' to 'prove' Jews have no connection to Western Wall

Earlier this month, Secretary of State Clinton announced a $150 million bailout for the 'Palestinian Authority' to cover a budget shortfall and to slap Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. Here's an indication of where some of that money is going.

The 'Palestinian Authority' has completed a 'study' that has 'proved' the lack of a Jewish connection to the Western Wall, the last remaining wall of the Jewish Temple. Yes, that is how the 'Palestinian Authority' is spending the American taxpayer's dollars.
The Western Wall belongs to Muslims and is an integral part of Al-Aksa Mosque and Haram al-Sharif (the Islamic term for the Temple Mount complex, meaning the Noble Sanctuary), according to an official paper published on Monday by the Palestinian Authority Ministry of Information in Ramallah.

The paper, which has been presented as a “study,” was prepared by Al-Mutawakel Taha, a senior official with the ministry, to “refute” Jews’ claims to the Western Wall.


The new document claims that the Western Wall, or Al- Buraq Wall, as it is known to Muslims, constitutes Waqf property owned by an Algerian- Moroccan Muslim family.

It claims there isn’t one stone in the wall that belongs to the era of King Solomon.

The “study” also contends that the path next to the Western Wall was never a public road, but was established only for the use of Muslims living in the area or making their way toward the mosques on the Temple Mount.

“The Zionist occupation falsely and unjustly claims that it owns this wall, which it calls the Western Wall or Kotel,” Taha, who is also a renowned Palestinian poet and writer, wrote in his project.

“Al-Buraq Wall is in fact the western wall of Al-Aksa Mosque.”

He added that the Jews had never used the site for worship until the Balfour Declaration of 1917.

“This wall was never part of the so-called Temple Mount, but Muslim tolerance allowed the Jews to stand in front of it and weep over its destruction,” he wrote. “During the British mandate in Palestine, the number of Jews who visited the wall increased to a point where the Muslims felt threatened, and then there was the Al-Buraq Revolution on August 23, 1929, where dozens of Muslims were martyred and a large number of Jews were killed.”
Arutz Sheva adds:
Writing on the official PA website, he added that the report quotes the “Jewish Encyclopedia, published in 1917” that “the Western Wall became part of the Jewish religious tradition around the year 1520, as a result of Jewish immigration from Spain, after the Ottoman conquest the year 1517... This was not part of the wall of the so-called Jewish Temple.”

Jews do not claim the Wall is part of the Temple building, but of the compound surrounding it..

The Ministry of Information also stated that a basis for the study’s denial of an ancient Jewish connection to the Western Wall is a Reform Judaism leader's comment that “there is no sanctity to the Western Wall in Judaism.”

The study also leans on one alleged opinion based on the “Biblical Criticism” theory that regards the Bible as an historical document and rejects much of 2,500 years of translations and interpretations by revered rabbinic sages.

The report concludes that the “Occupying Power” of Israel has practiced "racism" and has conducted “massacres against the Wailing Wall and the Islamic and Christian sanctities.

“Nor can any Muslim or Arab or Palestinian, for whatever reason, give up a single stone or piece of dust from the Wailing Wall or other holy places, because that would be a concession on the Temple Mount, Jerusalem and the holy sites.”

The PA report was published one day after the Palestinian Authority castigated approval by the Israeli Cabinet for a multi-million dollar tourist center at the Western Wall area. The Palestinian Authority sad the plan was illegal because the area is claimed by the PA.
And President Hussein Obama expects us to make peace with this, as he spends American taxpayer dollars on it. What could go wrong?

Yup. They lie about Jewish history openly.

And Israel is expected to make peace with them?

Fat chance!
