As Smooth Stone has previously written, Arafat is not a “Palestinian”. He was born in Egypt. (Born? Hatched, is more like it.) But his family does have some history in the area although he won’t acknowledge it on CNN or Al-Jazeera.
You see, it was Arafat’s uncle who served as the grand mufti of Jerusalem in the 1920s and 1930s. It was his uncle who concluded, for the first time, that Mohammed had ascended into heaven from the site known as the Dome of the Rock on the Temple Mount.
That’s right, folks; the vicious lie that there is no Wailing Wall, only Al-Buraq, was a MYTH created by the grand mufti of Jerusalem, Arafat’s uncle.
See how it all fits together like one big ugly mudpie?
And it was Arafat’s uncle who, in an alliance with Adolf Hitler, condemned the Jews and their dreams about their eternal capital city.
The truth is that Jerusalem is revered to Jews. It has always been a place described and cherished in Jewish law. The word “Jerusalem” is mentioned more than 600 times in the Torah – not ONCE in the Koran.
For centuries, Jews have prayed toward Jerusalem in their synagogues, mourned the destruction of their Holy Temple in Jerusalem and pray tearfully, “Next year in Jerusalem.”
Again, we say, until the Palestinian Arabs and their supporters in the Middle East and around the world acknowledge basic history and archaeology, there is little point in pretending that a Palestinian state will ever bring peace.
