Pallywood Productions: History Revision Denies Jewish Temple

* A tried and tested pattern of conduct for over 1300 years. As Islamic as Muhammad himself.

Islamic leader: Jewish Temple “never existed”


*   No reason why it should have, since, after all, even long before the Temple was built, Abraham was a Muslim (Qur’an 3:67).

Note also this Sheikh’s blood libel. “Arab leader denies temple ever existed,” from the Jerusalem Post

There never has been a Jewish Temple

Defend the Al-Aqsa Mosque against Israel

“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”

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.”
PA TV (Fatah) Sep. 23, 2008

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? 

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 myth of al-Aqsa 17 September 2008 
By Dr. Mordechai Kedar

Holiness of Jerusalem to Islam has always been politically motivated

When the Prophet Mohammad established Islam, he introduced a minimum of innovations. He employed the hallowed personages, historic legends and sacred sites of Judaism and Christianity, and even paganism, by Islamizing them.

Thus, according to Islam, Abraham was the first Muslim and Jesus and St. John (the sons of Miriam, sister of Moses and Aron) were prophets and guardians of the second heaven. Many Biblical legends (“asatir al-awwalin”,) which were familiar to the pagan Arabs before the dawn of Islam, underwent an Islamic conversion, and the Koran as well as the Hadith (the Islamic oral tradition), are replete with them.

Islamization was practiced on places as well as persons: Mecca and the holy stone – al-Ka’bah – were holy sites of the pre-Islamic pagan Arabs. The Umayyad Mosque in Damascus and the Great Mosque of Istanbul were erected on the sites of Christian-Byzantine churches – two of the better known examples of how Islam treats sanctuaries of other faiths.

Jerusalem, too, underwent the process of Islamization: at first Muhammad attempted to convince the Jews near Medina to join his young community, and, by way of persuasion, established the direction of prayer (kiblah) to be to the north, towards Jerusalem, in keeping with Jewish practice; but after he failed in this attempt he turned against the Jews, killed many of them, and directed the kiblah southward, towards Mecca.

Muhammad’s abandonment of Jerusalem explains the fact that this city is not mentioned even once in the Koran. After Palestine was occupied by the Muslims, its capital was Ramlah, 30 miles to the west of Jerusalem, signifying that Jerusalem meant nothing to them.

Rediscovering Jerusalem

Islam rediscovered Jerusalem 50 years after Mohammad’s death. In 682 CE, Abd Allah ibn al-Zubayr rebelled
against the Islamic rulers in Damascus, conquered Mecca and prevented pilgrims from reaching Mecca for the Hajj. Abd al-Malik, the Umayyad Calif, needed an alternative site for the pilgrimage and settled on Jerusalem which was then under his control. In order to justify this choice, a verse from the Koran was chosen (17,1 = sura 17, verse,) which states (translation by Majid Fakhri):

“Glory to Him who caused His servant to travel by night from the Sacred Mosque to the Farthest Mosque, whose precincts We have blessed, in order to show him some of Our Signs, He is indeed the All-Hearing, the All-Seeing. “

The meaning ascribed to this verse is that “the furthest mosque” (al-masgid al-aqsa) is in Jerusalem and that Mohammad was conveyed there one night (although at that time the journey took three days by camel,) on the back of al-Buraq, a magical horse with the head of a woman, wings of an eagle, the tail of a peacock, and hoofs reaching to the horizon. He tethered the horse to the Western Wall of the Temple Mount and from there ascended to the seventh heaven together with the angel Gabriel. On his way he met the prophets of other religions who are the guardians of heaven.

Miraculous account

Thus Islam tries to gain legitimacy over other, older religions, by creating a scene in which the former prophets agree to Mohammad’s mastery, thus making him Khatam al-Anbiya (“the Seal of the Prophets”.)

Not surprisingly, this miraculous account contradicts a number of the tenets of Islam: How can a living man of flesh and blood ascend to heaven? How can a mythical creature carry a mortal to a real destination? Questions such as these have caused orthodox Muslim thinkers to conclude that the nocturnal journey was a dream of Mohammad’s. The journey and the ascent serves Islam to “go one better” than the Bible: Moses “only” went up to Mount Sinai, in the middle of nowhere, and drew close to heaven, whereas Mohammad went all the way up to Allah, and from Jerusalem itself.

What are the difficulties with the belief that the al-Aqsa mosque described in Islamic tradition is located in Jerusalem? For one, the people of Mecca, who knew Muhammad well, did not believe this story. Only Abu Bakr, (later the first Calif,) believed him and thus was called al-Siddiq (“the believer”.)

The second difficulty is that Islamic tradition tells us that al-Aqsa mosque is near Mecca on the Arabian Peninsula. This was unequivocally stated in “Kitab al-Maghazi,” a book by the Muslim historian and geographer al-Waqidi. According to al-Waqidi, there were two “masjeds” (places of prayer) in al-Gi’irranah, a village between Mecca and Ta’if – one was “the closer mosque” (al-masjid al-adna) and the other was “the further mosque” (al-masjid al-aqsa,) and Muhammad would pray there when he went out of town.

This description by al-Waqidi which is supported by a chain of authorities (isnad) was not “convenient” for the Islamic propaganda of the 7th Century. In order to establish a basis for the awareness of the “holiness” of Jerusalem in Islam, the Califs of the Ummayad dynasty invented many “traditions” upholding the value of Jerusalem, which would justify pilgrimage to Jerusalem for the faithful Muslims. Thus was al-Masjid al-Aqsa “transported” to Jerusalem. It should be noted that Saladin also adopted the myth of al-Aqsa and those “traditions” in order to recruit and inflame the Muslim warriors against the Crusaders in the 12th Century.

Must Judaism defer to Islamic myths?

Another aim of the Islamization of Jerusalem was to undermine the legitimacy of the older religions, Judaism and Christianity, which consider Jerusalem to be a holy city. Islam is presented as the only legitimate religion, destined to replace the other two, because they had changed and distorted the Word of God, each in its turn.

Though Judaism and Christianity can exist side by side in Jerusalem, Islam regards both of them as betrayals of Allah and his teachings, and has always done, and will continue to do, all in its power to expel both of them from this city. It is interesting to note that this expulsion is retroactive: The Islamic broadcasters of the Palestinian radio stations consistently make it a point to claim that the Jews never had a temple on the Temple Mount and certainly not two temples. (Where, then, according to them, did Jesus preach?)

Yasser Arafat, himself a secular person (ask Hamas!), did exactly what the Califs of the Umayyad dynasty did 1300 years ago: He marshaled the holiness of Jerusalem to serve his political ends. He must not have given control of Jerusalem over to the Jews since according to Islam they are impure and the wrath of Allah is upon them.

Moreover, the Jews are the sons of monkeys and pigs. The Jews are those who distorted the holy writings which were revealed to them and denied God’s signs. Since they violated the covenant with their God, He cursed them and they are forever the inheritors of hell. So how could Arafat hand over Jerusalem to the Jews?

The Palestinian media these days are full of messages of Jihad, calling to broaden the national-political war between Israel and the Palestinians into a religious-Islamic war between Jews and Muslims. For them, Christianity is no better than Judaism, since both “forfeited” their right to rule over Jerusalem. Only Islam – Din al-Haqq (“the Religion of Truth”) – has this right, and forever.

Since the holiness of Jerusalem to Islam has always been, and still is, no more than a politically motivated holiness, any Muslim leader or ruler would be putting his political head on the block should he give it up.

Must Judaism and Christianity defer to myths related in Islamic texts or envisioned in Mohammad’s dreams, long after Jerusalem was established as the ancient, true center of these two religions, which preceded Islam?

Should Israel give up on its capital just because some Muslims decided to recycle the political problems of the Umayyads 1250 years after the curtain came down on their role in history?

  1. Well, all that needs to be done here, is look UNDER that mosque, and that would reveal the truth –
    Like they found an old Viking City under Dublin, Ireland, when they dug out for a subway(?) – like they found an old Etruskan city under the city of Perugia in Italy – there are a lot of examples of these cities on top of cities all over Europa – Why not in Israel?????
    The proof is down there, but the Muslims will surely stop “us” from finding it.!
    Jerusalem is and has always been THE holy city for Jews and Christians – and will stay that way, no matter what the Mohammedans do or say.
    And it really only became important to them, because it is Holy to Jews and Christians. Another example of “Victory for Islam”
    If that little Iranian “Hitler” drops a bomb “to wipe out Israel” – (Let’s hope he don’t succeed on that) but if – Puff, goes their Mosque with it ….. but the temple ruins will still be there, I’m sure.!

  2. In the time of Mahomet, which died into 632 after Jesus Christ, Jerusalem was a Christian city of the Byzantine kingdom. It was conquered only six years later by the caliph Omar. During this period, it had only churches in the city and on the Mount of the Temple was a Byzantine church of Holy Marie. Towards the year 711, is 80 years after the death of Mahomet, the church was transformed into mosque and was called Al-Aqsa in order to give body to the incomprehensible sourate 17 of Coran. Mahomet could not thus think of this mosque when he wrote Coran, which not existed that three generations after its death.
    The Moslems rely on Coran to claim Jerusalem., however Jerusalem is not mentioned only once.
    Everybody knows,i mean Christian,Jews except (muzz)than the temple had exist,it’s well documented..if i remember well the Roman had destroy it 2 times,the last one by Hadrien,i think the Roman knew what they had done much more than a Fucking Mooslimes……

  3. One way or another, “al Aqsa” and other islamic stuff on the Temple Mount will be
    removed and the Temple rebuilt. The prophecies of God (not Mo) mandate it.

  4. Islam resent crime history against humanity
    In 1920s-30s, Palestinian Muslims committed massacre of Jews in Jewish land of Palestine murdering thousands of children and civilians. The murder was organized by the founder and supreme leader of the Arab Higher Committee, Haj Amin al Husseini, the Mufti of Jerusalem, and supported by British Administration of Palestine. The massacre was, in reality, the Holocaust committed by Palestinian Arabs in compliance with Islamic Koran which demand killing Christians and Jews.
    Haj Amin was close friend of Hitler. In 1941, Haj Amin came to Berlin and visited Hitler. He brought the Holocaust idea to Hitler. In 1943, Amin organized Bosnian Muslim battalions in Croatia comprising some twenty thousand men. The battalions were put in Waffen-SS units, fought Yugoslav partisans in Bosnia; thousands of Serbs, Roma (‘Gypsies’) and Jews hunted down by Haj Amin’s SS troops were killed by those same troops, or they were sent to the Islamic death camp Jasenovac. After the WWII, the International tribunal declared Haj Amin was crime criminal; however, he escaped prosecution, fled to Egypt and then Palestine where he organized Fatah. After his death in 1974, Arafat, who was Haj Amin lieutenant, became Fatah commander. He organized PLO. PLO and Fatah committed numerous murders around the world killing American and European Christian and Jews.
    From 1948 to 1953, Arab countries expelled almost million Jews and stall their properties. Laws of some Islamic countries ban Christians and Jews from living there, in compliance with Koran. In 1999, Kosovo Liberation Army stormed homes of the last 15 Jews in Kosovo’s capital, who had to clear out, with just the clothes on their backs
    The assassination of Robert F. Kennedy, a United States Senator and brother of assassinated President John F. Kennedy, took place shortly after midnight on June 5, 1968. He was killed following celebrations of his successful campaign in the Californian primary elections while seeking the Democratic nomination for President of the United States. The perpetrator was a twenty-four year old Palestinian immigrant named Sirhan Sirhan.
    In 1985, the Achille Lauro cruise ship was hijacked. During the hijacking, an elderly, wheelchair-bound American from New York, Leon Klinghoffer, was shot and pushed overboard. The hijacking was organized by the militant Palestinian Liberation Front in part to demand the freedom of Samir Kuntar, the convicted gunman now at the center of a prisoner swap between Israel and Hezbollah. (Unclear, why US has never demanded his extradition to US for trail)
    There are more:
    Iran Embassy Hostages, 1979;
    Beirut, Lebanon Embassy 1983;
    Beirut, Lebanon Marine Barracks 1983;
    Lockerbie, Scotland Pan-Am flight to New York 1988;
    First New York World Trade Center attack 1993;
    Dhahran, Saudi Arabia Khobar Towers Military complex 1996;
    Nairobi, Kenya US Embassy 1998;
    Dares Salaam, Tanzania US Embassy 1998;
    Aden, Yemen USS Cole 2000;
    New York World Trade Center 2001;
    Pentagon 2001.
    (Note: during the period from 1981 to 2001 there were 7,581 terrorist attacks worldwide.)
    The above is only a minuscule part of islam criminal and murderous history; however, it is more than enough to conclude that:
    1. Islam is Fascism and must be banned on American, European and Australian continents
    2. Koran is Islamic Mein Kampf
    The world literature knows only two books calling for total elimination of people based on their ethnicity or religion:
    1. Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler and
    2. Koran by Prophet Muhammad
