While the incident is both funny and maddening, I think that Ms. Hirsch could have shut up her Waqf friend with two pieces of information.

One is from the Waqf itself. While the guard said that Jews were the ones who made up a story about the Temple around 1940, that happens to be not far from the time that the Waqf started erasing Jewish history there. The Waqf pamphlet for tourists up until around 1952 explicitly admitted that Solomon’s Temple was at the site:

The current Waqf pamphlet explicitly denies any Jewish history altogether.

Jews first settled in Hebron during the Ottoman Empire? No, Jews have been there almost continuously since Biblical times, except during Byzantine rule and the time between the 1929 riots and 1968.

Jews lived peacefully in Hebron with the Arabs? Just based on Wikipedia, we see:

Jews were banned from visiting the Tomb of the Patriarchs, and Jewish women disguised themselves as Muslim women in order to visit, at much risk to their lives, in the 15th century.

Turkish pashas extorted funds from only the Jews in the 18th century, almost crushing the community.

Not long after, Arabs falsely accused Jews of Hebron of having murdered the son of a local sheikh and they had to pay another exorbitant amount to not be slaughtered.

Hebron had a “strong tradition of hostility to Jews.”

Were Jews a small minority in Hebron? According to the 1837 Union Bible Dictionary, there were 400 Arab families and 120 Jewish families, "the latter having been reduced greatly in number by a bloody battle in 1834, between them and the troops of Ibrahim Pasha."

The Arabic term for Jerusalem, that even Western journalists like to use, is Al-Quds. Al-Quds come from the full term Beit-Al-MaQdish, turned into Al-Quds. Beit Al-MaQdish is Arabic for the Hebrew Beit Hamikdash, the Jewish Temple! In essence, the Arab term for Jerusalem is proof that Jerusalem belongs to the Jewish people!

Hungary, Ukraine and other Eastern European countries have used Holocaust memorializing to erase their own complicity in the slaughter of the Jews, presenting themselves instead as historic victims of the Nazis or even equating the Nazi killing of Jews with the Soviet killing of other minorities.

As Deech observed, the Holocaust tends to be lumped together with other genocides and examples of racism or persecution, thus watering down its significance. The message becomes a generalized one of avoiding hatred and intolerance.

But that doesn't address or explain the roots of the Holocaust: "Namely, centuries of Jewish persecution; first, on the grounds of religion, and then on the grounds of race, and now on the grounds of a distorted left-wing view of the State of Israel."

Of course, governments and nations should stand against all bigotry and persecution. But this kumbaya-esque mush robs Holocaust memorializing of its key point: that the Holocaust was a unique atrocity.

German Jewish navy sailors in Kiel during WWI.

Just think what happened to them in a little over 20 years from then. After fighting for their country. :(

Many Black antisemites insist that they are the real Jews and Jews are imposters, and they claim that they have science and history on their side.

So let’s look at their evidence.

This article in Medium by “Black Simba” is fairly typical in its list of proofs.

The Palestinian Authority:

“[Israeli] plots are being woven against it [Jerusalem] to forge its identity”

“The stones in the ground are fabricated graves planted [by Israel] to prove… an ancient Israeli and Jewish presence”

“The greatest liar is [Israel]… stealing our heritage”

”[Jewish history is] delusional myths and the arrogance of power”

”They [Israel] imagine that by this brute force they can invent a [Jewish] history”

“Their so-called 'Temple' - the greatest crime and forgery in history"


This evening, the 9th of the Jewish month of Av, Jews commemorate the destruction of both Temples in Jerusalem, by Babylon in 586 BCE and by Rome in 70 CE.

The Palestinians, hoping to create a state on land in which they have no national or political ancient history, feel threatened by the more than 3000 years of Jewish history which is thoroughly documented. Thousands of archaeological finds, including coins, stamps, Hebrew inscriptions and more, many of which go back to the First Temple period, all are testimony to the thriving Jewish history in the land. Accordingly, denial of Jewish history in the land of Israel and especially in Jerusalem is a central component of PA national - political ideology. It is expressed regularly by PA leader Mahmoud Abbas himself as well as other senior PA officials.

Recently the PA produced a TV filler of Abbas again denying Israel’s history in Jerusalem saying Palestinans must “confront the [Israeli] plots that are being woven against it to forge its identity and to change its character.” While Abbas’ voice is heard, images of Jews visiting the Temple Mount are shown:

RE: The Right To Destroy Jewish History
⁜→ Sixties Fan, et al,

BLUF: The Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock are the two key features that dominate the Temple Mount (
Haram esh-Sharif). These features are sacred to Islam and have been in the care of the Muslims for more than a thousand years.

(COMMENT)

Israel just needs to rise above this bickering and get on with a King Solomon like solution.

King Solomon would just make a new Temple. Even if the Israels lay one stone a day, it would be a start. King Solomon will not care if it is a few feet off the Mount.

It could be the most modern construction project of its kind - greater even then Khafre's Pyramid at Giza.

Most Respectfully,

A number of anti-Israel propaganda sites have posted some photos of Jaffa, which is in Israel proper, from the year 1900 before the “Zionists” supposedly occupied it.





Leaving aside the fact Jews were living in Jaffa at the time, there’s another problem: The photo on the top right (first photo) and right (second photo) is not of Jaffa at all. It is the Jaffa Gate in the old city of Jerusalem. And this is not even the first time Quds News Network have made this mistake.

Oh how familiar with their beloved Jaffa and Jerusalem they are that they do not even know what they look like, and mistake one for the other!

This is a libel on top of a libel, a double lie. The many Muslims who are convinced that al-Aqsa is in danger are now also convinced that “their” al-Aqsa stands on a place where “our” Temple never stood – the latter being nothing but a fabrication.

Some of the legitimacy that terrorism draws from the libel rests on that added lie. It is more legitimate to libel and murder Jews, so as “to protect the captive al-Aqsa and free it from the Jews who are plotting to destroy it,” if Israel and the Jews who “conspire to attack the site,” have only a false and concocted connection to it. Thus, the lie that undergirds the libel also bolsters the legitimacy to murder in its name. From the standpoint of the “Al-Aqsa is in danger” terrorists and their supporters, they do not murder only those who seek to wrest the Mount from their hands. As they see it, they are also murdering the falsifiers of history, who have no link to the site at all. They also want the Mount to be “liberated” psychologically so that their historical and religious narrative will prevail. This chapter (the appendix of the book) aims to refute this lie as well and to prove that it is nothing but a broken prop.
