Skip to comments.Arab Group Claims Western Wall is Muslim
Posted on 02/22/2013 10:05:52 AM PST by Former Fetus
An Israeli Arab group, "The Al-Aqsa Heritage Institute," on Thursday issued a statement demanding that Israel halt its plans to bring more Jews to the Kotel (Western Wall) - which, the group claims, is holy not to Jews, but to Muslims.
In fact, the group says, Israel is "defiling the holiness of the site" by conducting Jewish prayers there.
In Jewish tradition, the Kotel is the outer retaining wall of the Holy Temple, which stood on the Temple Mount, approximately at the same location as the Al-Aqsa Mosque. When the Holy Temple was destroyed nearly 2,000 years ago, Jews were prohibited from worshipping on the Mount, first by the Romans and then by the Muslims, and proscribed from doing so by Jewish law - and adopted the Kotel as a place of prayer, as it was the closest place to the Holy Temple as the could get.
In Islamic legend, however, the Kotel is a Muslim site - famous as the wall that Muhammad used to tie up his donkey when he ascended to heaven on his "night journey" from the Temple Mount. The "Buraq Wall," as Islamist groups call the Kotel, is a part of the Temple Mount, and thus has the same status for Muslims as the Al-Aqsa Mosque, or the other holy places in the area.

I think there's more than one @$$ in this story!
It sure didn't take long between signing up Livni for the new government and the palis next show!
That would be the equivalent to the Israelis saying the moon rock in mecca belongs to the Jews. These dirt bags are trying to incite a war.
In case anyone has not figured it out, World War III has already started - Islamism vs. Western Culture. Oh, it may take a few more years before the liberal dolts on the left finally figure it out. Let’s hope by then it will not be too late for the rest of us.
The muzzies will hijack absolutely anything, including the holy Name of G-d (they claim that He & `Allah’ are the same).
Nuke Makkah NOW!
Any piece of real estate coveted by a Muslim automatically becomes Islamic property. They’d probably claim Mt. Erebus in Antarctica, if they thought they could get something out of it.
Isn’t that the site where Mo used to chill?
"You have not experienced Shakespeare until you have read him in the original Klingon."
More mooslim camel-dung.
Not a f**king word of any of this is in the Quran. It says he ascended to Big Gay Allah's bathhouse in the sky above the "farthest sanctuary" - which was much later interpreted to mean Jerusalem - after the Muslim Nazi armies conquered it.
“the wall that Muhammad used to tie up his donkey.”
I wonder why he didn’t just use the donkey to ascend to heaven, instead of the winged horse he supposedly used.
Nowhere in the Koran is Jerusalem mentioned. Nowhere in the Koran is the temple mount designated as a holy site. Muslims appropriate others holy sites, once conquered, in the name of the moon god, and then demand that history be rewritten to uphold Islam.
Note: these are Arabs making this claim...the term itself “Arab” notes that they come from Arabia, not Israel. Israel itself is holy ground denied the descendants of Ishmael, but promised to the descendants of Isaac. The nation of Israel existed, and held the temple mount, and Jerusalem as holy for over a thousand years before the Mohammad started his death cult.
Islam--- never existed until the 7th Century A.D.
Clearly, the Jews owned the wall for many centuries while the savages of arabia were eating grubs and worms, building nothing, and worshiping rocks.
Low IQ and total ignorance is the badge of "islam,"
