Now the PLO itself (which is the self-styled representative of all Palestinians worldwide and which the Palestinian Authority reports to) has officially stated that Jews have no history to speak of in Jerusalem, by denying that there was ever any Temple on the Temple Mount.
Guterres had told Israel Radio that it is “completely clear that the Temple that the Romans destroyed in Jerusalem was a Jewish temple.”
The PLO issued a statement saying that the entire area (including the "walls," a reference to the Western Wall) is entirely Muslim and no others have any claim, and that UNESCO agrees with this.
The PLO slammed the Secretary-General, questioning his neutrality, saying that his remarks showed that he openly sides with the state of the Israel and its "occupation" and that his words "betrays his ignorance of clear international resolutions on Jerusalem."
The PLO went on to demand an apology from the United Nations and from Gutteres himself for "these dangerous statements, which are contrary to international law, which the United Nations has the task of maintaining and applying."
It went further, calling on the international community and NGOs in general, and Arab and Islamic countries in particular, to "play their role and respond to those allegations."
This is a perfect topic to ask Saeb Erekat or Hanan Ashrawi about the next time they are interviewed. Too bad reporters aren't willing to challenge these liars on basic questions.
Fantasy and lies are part and parcel of the PLO's positions. Which means that any agreement with them is impossible, since they cannot be trusted to tell the truth about anything.
