PA Minister’s Comments on Jerusalem

Our response to the Palestinian Authority Jerusalem Affairs minister’s comments criticising the UN Secretary General for mentioning Jewish history on the Temple Mount:

“This is an utterly unacceptable attempt by Adnan al-Husseini, Palestinian Authority Jerusalem Affairs minister, to write the Jewish people out of Jerusalem’s history. As we said in October, when UNESCO resolved – in al-Husseini’s words – that the Temple Mount/Haram al-Sharif is “of pure Islamic heritage”, this is “an inflammatory denial of Jewish history”. Claims of sole ownership of Jerusalem’s holy sites – from either side – are a direct impediment to peace. The Palestinian Authority should retract al-Husseini’s statement.”
