Whatever one accuses Israel’s enemies of, one cannot say the PA (Palestinian Authority), Hamas do not express their true intentions. Correct, that at times in Hebrew or English the truth may be masked, but in Arabic the truth comes out.
In this case however, we heard it in Hebrew too, as PA Minister of Holy Sites Mahmud el-Habbash told Channel 10 that in a deal with Israel, the occupation of the Kosel must come to an end as well for all lands “occupied since 1967 must be returned”. This includes Har Habayis, the Kosel, Ramat Eshkol, French Hill and many many other areas of the capital. The PA minister was careful however to single out “al-Aqsa Mosque and the Western Wall” so he is understood loud and clear.
US Secretary of State John Kerry however continues to assure Israel as he formulates his latest secret document containing his latest formula for peace with those seeking Israel’s destruction.
Not to worry however for the minister assures us Jews wishing to daven at the Kosel will be permitted to do so, perhaps expecting us to believe this as Israel today maintains “free access” to Kever Yosef as stipulate in Yitzhak Rabin’s and President Shimon Peres’ Oslo Agreement.
