Do You Know Your History??

I have just read an excellent article in Arutz7 at this link:

It offers proof that the Arab Moslem position that the Temple Mount is not Jewish--is a bunch of bunk! The proof?? It is in a Temple Mount Guide published by none other than the Supreme Moslem Council (Waqf) of Jerusalem--in 1925!
The article presents information that was provided by the Jerusalem-based Temple Institute:
[ http://www.templeinstitute.org ]. Apparently they have a copy of the official 1925 Supreme Moslem Council Guide Book to Al-Haram Al-Sharif (the Moslem name for the Temple Mount)--the article includes three pages from the guide.

Look at some of the garbage spouted by the Arab Moslems in their attempt to "re-write history":

...the claim of the Jews to the right over [Jerusalem] is false, and we recognize nothing but an entirely Islamic Jerusalem under Islamic supervision...

...we remind, for the 1,000th time, that the entire Al-Aqsa mosque [on the Temple Mount], including all of its area and alleys above the ground and under it, is exclusive and absolute Moslem property, and no one else has any rights to even one grain of earth in it...

...the 'Al-Buraq' Wall [the Western Wall] is a part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. The Jews have no relation to it...

...the false historical claim of the Jews in the holy city, a claim which they were unable to prove in all of the excavations conducted by foreign groups for the past hundred years, and

...statements that Israelis are guilty of unprecedented historical forgeries, emphasizing the Palestinian, the Arab and the Islamic nature of the holy city for the past 6,000 years, saying that Israel fails in her attempt to find a historical connection to Jerusalem.

For too long Israel has been bad-mouthed, and it is time to stand up and say ENOUGH!

One person who has not only said this, but written about it, is Binyamin Netanyahu. At the Nefesh B'Nefesh Blogger's Conference, he stated that the way to fight Israel's bad press is by speaking the truth, and the only way to do that is to know the truth--and your history--the history of Israel. You can watch Mr. Netanyahu, and listen to his comments on this and some other topics at [ http://www.nbn.org.il/bloggers/ ]. He begins speaking at 01:00:56 into the tape and addresses this issue at approximately 01:29:49. Even if you are not interested in the conference, I urge you to listen to this portion--Listen and Learn!! Whether you like Mr. Netanyahu or not, his words on our history and "Our Rights" are powerful, and something that we should all take very, very seriously.

And for those who may not be aware of it:
Jews have not been allowed to pray on the Temple Mount since former Chief IDF Rabbi Shlomo Goren led a prayer service there on the first Tisha B'Av after the liberation. Jews' visiting hours are also restricted

May the great evil that is oppressing this land be removed soon--in our time!!

Israel, Jerusalem, Judaism, Zionism, Middle East, Aliyah, Conversion, and everything else that pops up
