“So what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive! When you are a habitual liar it’s hard to remember all the lies you’ve told. And eventually they catch up with you, like the one the palestinians are telling that the Jews have no history on the Temple Mount. Hello! Time to strip the lies and see them for what they are; followers of the Father of All Lies! They even admit that Allah is the best of all in their own words.”
By Israel: Today After making aliyah (immigrating to Israel) in 1968—about a year after the reunification of Jerusalem in the Six Day War—one of my first tours was to Jerusalem’s Old City and the Dome of the Rock and Mosque of Al Aksa on the Temple Mount.
There, I bought a tourist guide book written in 1962 by Abed Er-Rahman Rissas and entitled: “El Haram Esh Sharif” (The Noble Sanctuary), the Arabic name for the Temple Mount.
On page 1, the book says: “On Mount Moriah, Abraham prepared to sacrifice his son Isaac [Genesis 22:2], and here, Ornan the Jebusite had his threshing floor, which David bought and upon which he erected an altar, later to be superseded by Solomon’s Temple.
