Ehud Barak to Arafat: «Jesus was not ministering from a Mosque in Jerusalem»

«Where do you think Jesus drove the money lenders from? The mosque?».

Ehud Barak rebuked Yasser Arafat for trying to falsify World history in front of Bill Clinton.

This was a question from than Israeli Prime Minster Ehud Barak in front of US President Bill Clinton.

During their «Peace talk» in the Oslo Process, Yasser Arafat told president Bill Clinton there never was a temple on the Temple Mount. That infuriated Clinton and led then-prime minister Ehud Barak to sarcastically ask Arafat, «Where do you think Jesus drove the money lenders from? The mosque?»

The most pernicious form of incitement has been the Palestinian campaign to delegitimize Israel and deny any Jewish claim to the land. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told the AIPAC audience, «The connection between the Jewish people and the land off Israel… and Jerusalem cannot be denied».

Yet that is exactly what the Palestinians have been trying to do for years.

Ironically, they accuse Israel of planning to build a Third Temple, while denying the first two ever existed. Jesus, by the way, according to the Palestinian revisionists, was not Jewish but Palestinian. Wait till his mother hears that one.

Jerusalem dates back 3,000 years in Jewish history, and next week the Passover Seders around the world will conclude with the words, «Next year inJerusalem». Jerusalem is mentioned repeatedly in the Old Testament but not once in the Koran. A key factor in President Barack Obama’s low standing among Israelis is the impression that he has been one-sided with his intense pressure on Israel to freeze settlements and almost indifferent to Palestinian provocations.

My comment:

Since Islam came into existence in the years of Muhammad. (571 A.D to 632 A.D), there could not have been a Mosque in Jerusalem during the time of Jesus.

And if Jesus was a Palestinian, what kind of building did he enter into?

The Bible says that there were Jebusite´s living in the area where King David founded the city of Jerusalem.

They worshiped the pagan god of Baal. The Canaanites also worshiped other gods, all of them is form of statues of stone and wood.

This kind of idol worship was even banned by Islam. So whoever Arafat feels «Jesus the Palestinian» could have been, he was not a good Muslim. And if He was not a good Muslim, He could neither have been a great prophet.

  1. Jesus was Jewish, but he told his followers to love their neighbors as themselves. He never preached to take their land away.

    Later, in the Old Testament, God also told the Israelites to treat the aliens they found in the land as fellow citizens with all the same “rights”.

    Jesus most certainly was a Palestinian Jew as were many who believed in Him. He didn’t differentiate.

    Most of the Palestinian Arabs and Christians in the West Bank have a direct blood line to Jesus’ followers, unlike the settlers who have arrived from Europe and the USA.

      My comment:

      Your claim of Arab and “Christian” bloodline is not valid. Jesus warned us against comments like this. The King of the Jews told us that people of His Earthly family was not His eternal family, if they do not do the will of God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel.

      Matthew 12:47-50.

      Someone told him, “Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to speak to you.”
      He replied to him, “Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?” Pointing to his disciples, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers. For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.”

      (end of scriptures)

      Jesus do have spiritual children among both Jews and gentiles that have been grafted into the true Messianic Jewish faith.
