Saudi Lawyer Shuts Down Israeli-Palestinian Debate by Exposing Where Al-Aqsa Really Is

by Phil Schneider

If one were to ask an Arab who lives in the State of Israel to explain what is the core of the conflict between Jews and Arabs in the State of Israel, they will probably mention the words, Al Aqsa. The Al Aqsa Mosque that they are referring to is the Mosque that is located on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, the holiest site of the Jewish people. But this Saudi Arabian lawyer claims that the real Al Aqsa Mosque is not located in Jerusalem at all – but in Mecca, Saudi Arabia!

Oussama Yemani made the following controversial remarks, ” “Jerusalem is not [the site of] Al-Aqsa [Mosque] as it was not bearing this name during the mission of the messenger of God, Muhammad, may God bless him and grant him peace, nor during the era of the Rightly Guided Caliphs.” Obviously if this controversial opinion builds traction, it will be an earthquake in terms of it’s ramifications. After all, for more than 800 years, the Jewish Temple stood on the very spot that is occupied now by the Mosque of Omar and Al Aqsa on the Temple Mount.

It is indeed very difficult to fathom a situation wherein the Jewish people in Israel and the Arabs in Israel come to a working agreement on the area of the Temple Mount. It is indeed an intractable issue that flares up very easily, whenever some Arabs are angered by this or that action by the Israel Defense Forces. From 1949 till 1967, Jordan occupied the Temple Mount and forbade Jews from visiting the Western Wall and the Temple Mount. This was the first time that Jews were not able to pray at or near the Holiest Site to the Jewish people. But from 1967, Jerusalem’s Western Wall has become one of the most unified locations for the entire Jewish people.
