The Wakf Denies the Existence of the Jewish Temple

Not that this is an unusual occurrence these days, but the Wakf arranged a rare tour of the Al-Aksa mosque for 40 foreign journalists in which the tour guide told the journalists that there was insufficient archaeological evidence to support the existence of a Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount.  The guide, Muhammad Abu Aktesh, said the only evidence which might suggest a Jewish Temple is the The Place of the Trumpeting, 4 CE.  He conveniently did not mention the wealth of textual information about the Temple or the fact that the Muslim Supreme Council acknowledged the existence of the Temple in 1929.
