PA TV glorifies murderers from 1929 riots, denies Jewish connection to Jerusalem

Official PA TV program From Amman, on Jerusalem

Official PA TV host: “The British administration wanted to sneak Jerusalem and its waqfs (i.e., inalienable religious endowments in Islamic law) to the Zionist movement. The [Palestinian] residents of Jerusalem rebelled in the Al-Buraq Revolution (i.e., the 1929 Hebron Massacre and accompanying riots) when a group of Zionists wanted to claim that Al-Buraq (i.e., the Western Wall of the Temple Mount) is theirs and that it is ‘the Wailing Wall.’ From that moment, the Palestinian revolutions – the revolutions of the Palestinian people – have been renewing. Following the Al-Buraq Revolution in 1929, three leaders of this move (i.e., terrorists Muhammad Jamjoum, Fuad Hijazi, and Ataa Al-Zir, involved in the Hebron Massacre in which 65 Jews were murdered) were executed, who fell while protecting the Al-Aqsa Mosque and were executed before the walls of Acre. The poet Ibrahim Touqan eulogized them in a poem called Red Tuesday.”


The Al-Buraq Wall - Islam's Prophet Muhammad is said to have ridden during his Night Journey from Mecca to "al aqsa mosque", i.e., "the farthest mosque" (Quran, Sura 17), and there tied his miraculous flying steed named Al-Buraq to a "stone" or a "rock." (Jami` at-Tirmidhi, Book 47, Hadith 3424). In the 1920's, Arab Mufti Haj Amin Al-Husseini decided to identify the Western Wall of the Temple in Jerusalem as that "rock" or "stone," and since then Muslims refer to the Western Wall as the "Al-Buraq Wall."


Muhammad Jamjoum, Fuad Hijazi, and Ataa Al-Zir “committed particularly brutal murders [of Jews] at Safed and Hebron,” according to the report by British Government to the League of Nations. They were convicted of attacking British soldiers and murdering Jews in the 1929 Hebron Massacre, in which 65 Jews were murdered. They were executed by the British in 1930.
