Former PA PM denies authenticity of Jewish gold medallion discovered near Western Wall
Official Palestinian Authority TV - Sept. 11, 2013
When this gold medallion (see picture) was discovered 50 meters from the Temple Mount in September 2013, with clear Jewish symbols (a menorah -candelabra, a shofar - ceremonial horn, and a Torah scroll - Bible), the PA rushed to deny the authenticity of the find.
PA TV host:
"I would like your response to the Jewish treasures discovered near the Al-Buraq Wall (i.e., the Western Wall)..."
Ahmed Qurei, former PA Prime Minister and member of the PLO Executive Committee:
"I think this is a falsification, a falsification of the truth. It's all an attempt to make claims. They did not find anything. They excavated beneath the Al-Aqsa Mosque and didn't find anything. They found only Roman and Byzantine artifacts. They only found a few ancient Canaanite artifacts. They didn't find anything [Jewish], [not even] a stone."
