Islamic Waqf Revises History: ‘Temple Mount, Kotel are Muslim’
INN ^ | 1/21/2014, 7:59 PM | Maayana Miskin

Posted on 01/21/2014 10:53:23 AM PST by Olog-hai

The Islamic Waqf, which supervises the Temple Mount, Judaism's holiest site, has issued a pamphlet that makes new claims regarding the Mount—arguing, among other things, that King Solomon was a Muslim and that there is no Jewish connection to either the Temple Mount or the Western Wall (Kotel). […]

In one section, titled, “Al-Buraq Wall and NOT the Wailing Wall,” the pamphlet teaches, “Al-Buraq wall is part of the western wall of the Al-Aqsa mosque.” The pamphlet goes on to link the wall to Islam, stating that it is known as the site where Mohammed “tied his winged steed, Al-Buraq.” (According to Islamic legend, Muhammed did not die, but flew to heaven on a winged horse called Al-Buraq.) […]

The updated pamphlet denies historical evidence that the Biblical King Solomon ever built a Jewish Temple, offering the following argument as proof: “Solomon was just another prophet of Islam, and therefore, he could not have the authority to build a structure for the worship of any other god but Allah.” …

The Koran may not mention Jerusalem, but it has been holy ground for the moslems from the beginning. They built the Dome of the Rock around 690 AD. Al-Aqsa Mosque is from the same time frame. The rest sounds like typical imaginary moslem revisionist history.

Sorry, but this article is full of inaccuracies.

a pamphlet that makes new claims regarding the Mount—arguing, among other things, that King Solomon was a Muslim

Islam has always claimed that the earlier "prophets" such as Adam, Noah, Moses, Solomon and Jesus were in submission to God (Allah) and were therefore good Muslims. Islam did not come into existence with Mohammed, he was simply the last and greatest of its prophets.

By this POV, both Judaism and Christianity are heresies of Islam. The point being that there is nothing new about this claim.

According to Islamic legend, Muhammed did not die, but flew to heaven on a winged horse called Al-Buraq.

Also untrue. Mohammed's flight on Buraq was not at his death, but 10 years after he started his ministry, around 620, or roughly 12 years before he died. He flew at night from Mecca to Jerusalem, then visited each of the 7 Heavens before returning to Mecca.

Islam has never claimed anything but an ordinary human death for Mohammed.

Interestingly, Buraq means lightning, and has the same root as the first name of our President.

They put the Dome there because the ground was vacant, and because Jerusalem was filled with Christian structures. The original Church of the Holy Sepulcher had a golden dome quite a bit higher than the crusader church that remains. The Persians had sacked the city and so it was in bad shape before the Muslims came. They, of course, made no effort to repair it.

King Solomon ruled 1100 years before there was an Islam.

No, it’s not the article that’s full of inaccuracies. The Waqf definitely changed their stances since 1925, even in spite of what the Koran actually says.

You seem like you’re in love with the Koran.

The article says Mohammed didn’t die, but instead flew to heaven on a winged horse.

Is that statement true?

I am happy to criticize Islam all day long. I just like the criticisms to be accurate.

You see, there’s this problem. If I am a prosecutor, and I make three easily disproven accusations against the defendant, I have drastically weakened my case for the three remaining entirely truthful accusations.

I despise Islam, but I despise those who lie to prove a point even more. Even when it’s a point I agree with.

Islam is only 1700 years old, King Solomon lived 2800 years ago. Kind of hard to be a member of the foremost religion of hate and murder when it wont exist for another 1000 years! Such is the stupid revisionist history of the religion of peace i.e. hate!

Are you SURE Buraq doesn’t mean “north end of a south bound horse - or something”?

For those who use a larger chunk of the internet thats fine...

Im often surprised about what a narrow swathe of this huge network many people ever venture “into” to learn anything but ball scores and what aunt becky had for lunch. Now theres nothing wrong with that information but its does not lead to a more socio politically informed people.

The core attitudes of the “news presenters” will likely remain the same.

Its up to each of us...in our face to face conversations to present the world as it is.

Consider the span of time between Abraham’s death and Islam’s concoction as well.

I do wonder what the Waqf were thinking when they published this Temple Mount Guide back in 1925 that was so obviously apostate from Islam, eh . . . ?

Uh, King Solomon existed a 1000 yrs before Mohammed (pbuh). "Piss" being the operative word in that acronym. So how does that work, Waqf?

I agree with you. Muslims don't.

From their POV all the prophets of the Old Testament as well as Jesus were good Muslims. (Not sure what they believe about Paul and the other apostles.)

Islam did not, from this perspective, come into existence with the teachings of Mohammed. It was the faith of all believers in God prior to him also. Mo merely purified and finalized the faith.

From this perspective, Judaism and Christianity are deviations from and heresies of Islam, the primitive pure religion. This is somewhat similar to the way many Protestants view Catholicism as a corruption of the original Christian faith, and their own sects as a return to that original doctrine. Or what Mormons believe about all other Christian groups.

Now this isn't something I agree with, but since Muslims believe it, it is not at all illogical for them to claim Adam, Moses, Noah, Solomon and Jesus as good Muslim prophets.

I believe it's untrue, but it's not illogical.

Didn’t stop whomever authored the Koran to write stuff about him, his dad David, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Ishmael, Jesus, Mary and lots of other Biblical figures.

And of course, back in 1925, the Waqf explicitly stated that the Temple Mount is Jewish.

Here is what the article says. It is not quoting the Waqf or anybody else.

"(According to Islamic legend, Muhammed did not die, but flew to heaven on a winged horse called Al-Buraq.)"

That statement is flatly untrue. Muslim legend says no such thing.

There are ambiguous similar stories in the Bible regarding Enoch and Elijah not dying but instead being taken straight to Heaven, but nothing in Islam.

Thanks Olog-hai.
Solomon was just another prophet of Islam, and therefore, he could not have the authority to build a structure for the worship of any other god but Allah.
That's the kind of fake thinking that becomes inevitable after generations of consanguinous marriages.

The magic horse that the hashish-soaked brain of an arab war-lord claims he rode to visit allah to a 'far mosque' and probaly meant some mud-brick village in the desert? That magic horse? The one with the face of a woman and the tail of a peacock? (They had peacocks in the desert, will wonders never cease?)

There's nothing came out of that drugged mind that wasn't plagiarized from another religion or culture.

The template for the 'magic horse' is from ancient India, as is algebra, also claimed by the thieves of the desert.

There are obvious similarities to the Hindu Goddess Kamadhenu, who took the form of a wish-fulfilling cow, often depicted with wings and a peacock's tail, like Al Buraq.

It's just a detail, but Muhammad (born 570 AD, died 632 AD) founded Islam about 1400 years ago.

And that's purely the result of mohammad sitting on the temple steps when he was a street-kid listening to the followers of Judaeism and Christianty as they discussed their religions - and soaking it up like a sponge; but as he was illiterate his memory failed him on certain issues, like the names of the family of Jesus for example. His early attempts to establish a new religion out of the ingredients he picked up in this fashion were met with derision and he was thrown out of town.

You almost made mohammadanism sound like a religion. It's not, it never was, it was and is nothing but the cult of mohammad.

From this perspective, Judaism and Christianity are deviations from and heresies of Islam, the primitive pure religion.

This and your previous posts are spot on. That IS their perspective. OTOH, in a twisted sort of way, it is even true.

Islam is almost certainly satanic in its origins and ideology, incorporating Satan's trademark, lies, confusion, and capriciousness, including exceptions to every rule or Commandment; and glaring contradictions; and offering NO assurance to ANYONE that "Paradise" will be their reward. Even the most devout and observant Muslim can still be relegated to Hell; while the worst reprobate can be granted "Paradise", both merely depending on how "Allah" feels at any particular moment.

The "primitive pure religions" that preceded, or were contemporaneous with, Judaism (and later, also Christianity) were also satanically derived: based on lies, deception, confusion, murder, and other evils. Judaism & Christianity recognized Truth, and accepted God's revelations, and came out of the confusion into His love and, ultimately, His Grace.

No lie from an old Serpent like the lie of a half truth cunningly spun.

Extra Extra Read all about it...

The Story of Abu Madein Al-Ghouth’s Legacy (Waqf) to the Moors in Jerusalem

Clip:

The Content of Abu Madein Al-Ghouth’s Legacy

It is noteworthy to register the contents of a document by the great learned scholar, Abu Madein Shu’eib Ben Al-Mujahed Abu Abdallah Moh’d Ben Al-Sheikh Al-Imam, the Blessing of the Muslims, and the rest of the ancestors, Abu Madein Shu’eib Al-Maghraby Al-Ottomany Al-Maleky, who was buried in Telmesan. This document, written on 29 Ramadan 720 H (2 November 1320 CE) during the life of the grandson, indicated that he had dedicated two places, which he had been running by himself. The first place was the village of Ein Karem and consisted of plains and rough terrain, houses for its people, orchards of pomegranate, olives, figs and oak trees, water wells, and old Roman vineyards. The document showed the borders of the village from the four directions: Al-Malha Al-Kubra south, Ein Qaroun, Qalounia, Harash, Sataf and Zawyet Al-Bukhtyari north, Ein Al-Sheqaq west, and Al-Malha Al-Kubra and Beit Marmeil east.

The second place is located in Jerusalem itself known as Qantara Asabat Um Al-Banat at Bab Al-Selsela, including a large building (Ewan), a large house, a yard, a facility and an underground store and a cellar. Although the document had showed the limits in great detail of the one in Ein Karem, it did not do the same for this one; however, it did show its four limits, especially the eastern side which ends at Al-Buraq. The document added that this legacy will remain through the ages and it has been confirmed throughout its history. The document added that both Ein Karem and the Ewan have been dedicated to the Moors in Jerusalem or those visiting the city regardless of their color, trade, sex, age or status, and nobody could fight the Moors over this Waqf, which they could make use of it in different ways, such as rental, agriculture or sharing, and the priority will be for the newcomers then the indebted and so on. The document stated that the revenue of these estates should be given to the Moors in Mecca and Medina, but if there is nobody to take it, the revenues should be sent to the two Holy Shrines. Concerning the estate attendant, he should be elected by the Moors in the cities themselves after the death of Abu Al-Ghouth, and this attendant has to be an honest and pious Muslim who takes care of the estates and invests them properly.

Without going into the agonizing activity of reading all that muslim BS, after about halfway through, it dawned on me...

That's because the left wing and the athiests and the anti-Christians and anti-semites and the cabal at the UN who represent them, refuse to acknowledge Israel AS THE HOMELAND OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

'Life' for them in that region commences with the muslim conquest.
