1924 Temple Mount Guide Tells the Truth ------------ You are purchasing an exact, one-of-a-kind, museum-quality reproduction of the 1924 first edition of A Brief Guide to al-Haram al-Sharif. Sixteen pages, with seven photographs on and around the Temple Mount site: *** Photo #1 -- View of the Haram Area (from the North Wall) *** Photo #2 -- The Fountain (Sabil) of Qait Bay *** Photo #3 -- The Southern Arcades (Mawazin) and Pulpit of Burhaneddin *** Photo #4 -- The Dome of the Rock (view from the North-East) *** Photo #5 -- The Rock (interior view of the Dome) *** Photo #6 -- The al-Aqsa Mosque (front view) *** Photo #7 -- The al-Aqsa Mosque (interior view) ------------ Here are but a few of the many documented statements by important figures denying the Jewish people s historic ties to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem: -- The Jerusalem Post reported on August 27, 2009, The Palestinian Authority s chief Islamic judge, Sheikh Tayseer Rajab Tamimi, said that there was no evidence to back up claims that Jews had ever lived in Jerusalem or that the Temple ever existed. Tamimi claimed that Israeli archeologists had admitted that Jerusalem was never inhabited by Jews. ------------ The November 22, 1997 edition of the Palestinian newspaper, Al-Ayyam published a statement from the chief Muslim cleric of the Palestinian Authority, Mufti Ikrama Sabri, The claim of the Jews to the right over [Jerusalem] is false, and we recognize nothing but an entirely Islamic Jerusalem under Islamic supervision... ------------ In the midst of such quotes there stands an authentic piece of Muslim literature that counters these and other similar declarations. _______________________________________ ------------ The Supreme Muslim Councils own words dating back to their 1924 Guide to the Temple Mount confirm the truth of the Jewish people s unique relationship to these hallowed grounds dating back some three thousand years. ------------ Irrefutable documentation of this fact comes from the well-researched, sixteen-page A Brief Guide to al-Haram al-Sharif, published by the Supreme Muslim Council. This Guide officially recognizes Jewish connection to the Temple Mount. ------------ On the fourth page the Historical Sketch of the Haram declares: The site is one of the oldest in the world. Its sanctity dates from the earliest times. Its identity with the site of Solomon s Temple is beyond dispute. This, too, is the spot, according to universal belief, on which David built there an altar unto the Lord, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings (2 Samuel 24:25). But, for the purposes of this Guide, which confines itself to the Moslem period, the starting-point is the year 637 AD. ------------ Judaism's unequivocal connection to the Temple Mount comes up again on the last page of the booklet (page sixteen), which discusses the substructures of the Dome of the Rock. Describing the area of Solomon s Stables, which Islamic Waqf officials converted into a new mosque in 1996, the guide states: ...It dates probably as far back as the construction of Solomon s Temple. According to Josephus, it was in existence and was used as a place of refuge by the Jews at the time of the conquest of Jerusalem by Titus in the year 70 A.D. ------------ All editions of the Temple Mount Guide from 1924-1953 were published with the same wording by the Supreme Muslim Council.
