Dr. Sari Nusseibeh, of Birzeit University in Ramallah, an Arab university lecturer and writer is hiding underground out of fear for his life after shocking the Arab Palestinian Authority with a book that ratifies the Temple Mount is Jewish.
Dr. Nusseibeh, exposed the propaganda campaign that attempts to convince Arabs that the First and Second Temples never existed. He wrote in a book, “The legendary Temple of Jerusalem is the place of the Presence of the Almighty and where the High Priests of Israel served Him.”
Dr. Mordechai Kedar, Middle East expert at Bar-Ilan University, alleges that Nusseibeh follows in the footsteps of a Muslim grand mufti, in the days of the British Mandate, who wrote in 1929 that the Holy Temples on the Temple Mount were Jewish. According to Dr. Kedar, Nusseibeh had previously made enemies in the Arab PA after declaring he is not interested in returning to his former home of Ramle. He was threatened with death several years ago after urging Arabs to stop suicide bombings and to abandon their claim to a “right of return” to Israel.
Although Nusseibeh fears for his life, he will continue his statements against the Arab propaganda machine without worrying about being targeted by Muslims.
Dr. Kedar has been interviewed by the Al Jazeera television network, where he boldly charged Muslims with lying and trying to make Jews victims of Arab hatred; “Our aim is to turns things around and hit them back”. “In order to succeed, we need to know Arabic, Arab politics and Arab history.” The Arab world has been conducting a campaign, including removal of tons of dirt containing archaeological evidence, to try to eliminate historical Jewish artefacts with the Temple Mount.
