The Palestinian Authority continues to deny the existence of Jewish history, claiming the Holy Temple in Jerusalem never existed.

According to a program on the Palestinian Authority’s official TV, “[Israeli] authorities intended to excavate a number of tunnels under the surroundings of the Al-Aqsa Mosque [on the Jewish Temple Mount] in an attempt to find proof or artifacts of the alleged Temple.”

The show went so far as to accuse Israel of “invent[ing] an imaginary history while claiming the connection of the archaeological finds to the Hebrew period in Jerusalem.”

The “Hebrew period”? Perhaps on the next program the host will discover which people ruled Israel during the “Hebrew period”? Here’s a hint: they’re the same people who built the Holy Temple!
