One Interview, Five Lies By: Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik
FrontPageMagazine.com | Sunday, July 05, 2009


In a single TV interview, one of the Palestinian Authority's most senior religious officials has reiterated several of the many fundamental lies, libels and defamations about Israel, Jews and Jewish history that play a central role in PA ideology and hate propaganda. Tayseer Tamimi, the PA's Chief Religious Justice, regularly appears as a religious authority in the official PA media and at public events.
 
In this recent interview, Tamimi teaches that the Quran says that Jews have inherently negative traits and have been evil throughout history; that Jerusalem has no Jewish holy sites; that Israel is destroying the foundation of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, which is now "hanging in midair;" that Orthodox Jews deny the Western Wall is part of the Jewish Temple; and that Jesus was not a Jew but a Palestinian.

Tamimi's recent libels, lies and defamations on Fatah-controlled PATV, on June 9 alone, include:
  1. The Quran says Jews have inherently negative characteristics
  2. Jews have no connection to Jerusalem
  3. Israel is acting to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque
  4. Orthodox Jews deny the Western Wall is part of the Temple
  5. Jesus was not a Jew but a Palestinian prophet of Islam
#1. The Quran says Jews have inherently negative characteristics

Tayseer Tamimi, PA Chief Religious Justice:
"Concerning the Jews, the Holy Quran says that they lack understanding, are void of wisdom, know nothing, violate agreements, etc. However, the Jews were known -- it was known about them throughout history -- that they make false claims, lies, forgery, slander, and fabrications, in order to justify their aggression, land theft, defilement of holy sites, appropriation of land, destruction of homes, murder of children, women, and the elderly."

#2. Jews have no connection to Jerusalem

Tayseer Tamimi, PA Chief Religious Justice:
"I know of Muslim and Christian holy sites in [Jerusalem]. I don't know of any Jewish holy sites in it... Israel has been excavating since 1967 in search of remains of their Temple or their fictitious Jewish history."

#3. Israel is acting to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque

Tayseer Tamimi, PA Chief Religious Justice:
"The [Israeli] excavations' purpose is to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque. In fact, its foundations have been removed. Chemical acids were injected into the rocks to dissolve them. The soil and the pillars [were moved] so the mosque is hanging in midair. There is an Israeli plan to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque and to build the Temple."

#4. Orthodox Jews deny the Western Wall is part of the Temple


Tayseer Tamimi, PA Chief Religious Justice
:
"When the Prophet [Muhammad] entered Jerusalem, after landing with his 'riding animal' in the Night Journey from Mecca to Jerusalem, he tied it to the western wall, which is known today [by Muslims] as the al-Buraq Wall, and which the Jews usurped by falsification and deception [saying it is the Western Wall of the Temple]. Orthodox Jewish groups, such as Neturei Karta, denounce all the actions of the Israeli government and the Zionist movement in Jerusalem. They, more than us, say these claims are false and a distortion of the Jewish faith."

#5. Jesus was not a Jew but a Palestinian prophet of Islam

Archbishop Atallah Hanna (speaking humorously): "We [Christians] are local stock, 100% Palestinian and Arab produce."
Tayseer Tamimi, PA Chief Religious Justice: "Jesus is the only Palestinian prophet."
