JD: Tell everybody who the Palestinian Authority is and how did they come into existence?
IM: Palestinian Authority was the result of the Oslo Accords that was signed in 1993 where Israel accepted that they would give an Arab population of Judea and Samaria a certain amount of autonomy and then there would be negotiations to workout the details assuming there would be peace. The Israel has had a very how should I say, complicated relationship with them. The Palestinian Authority has been very very much supported of terror all the years from the Palestinian Authority. So the Palestinian Authority goes around the world claiming to be working for peace and co-existence with Israel but that is not true.
JD: The Palestinian Authority a different part of the body politic of the Palestinian people than Hamas for example there in the Gaza Strip.
IM: The world recognizes that Hamas is a terror organization.
JD: I think it was 1925 when the Supreme Muslim Council of the mandate of Palestine actually identified the Temple Mount with Solomon’s Temple is that correct?
IM: Absolutely correct. Islam has always til the last century has always recognized the Jewish connection to Jerusalem and in fact the Temple Mount. So the Palestinian Authority is even denying Islamic tradition in order to deny Israel’s right to exist in the land of Israel. And this is critical, the PA says the Jews have no history in the land and therefore they have to deny that there was a Temple all for the purpose of denying Israel’s right to exist and our heritage here.
