The PLO document is laughable. It not only erases all of Jewish history, but it erases Christian history and changes Muslim history as well:
[T]he Mosque has been under exclusive Muslim sovereignty and control since the construction of the Dome of the Rock in 692 CE.Which pre-dates...the Al Aqsa Mosque first built in 705 CE. But they don't want to call it "The Mount" because, well, that's what Jews and Christians call it.
And for about 100 years, the Temple Mount was controlled by the Crusaders.
But no matter how much the PLO lies, important people listen to them - like the people at CNN.
Check out CNN's headlines over the past few days:
The PLO's letter was written November 5.
The URL says "Temple-Mount-Clashes," indicating that the headline may have been changed from its original wording.
The articles themselves still say variants of "the compound called the Temple Mount by Jews and Haram al-Sharif, or the Noble Sanctuary, by Muslims."
Are the headline changes coincidental - or is CNN caving to demands by a group that wants to erase Jewish and Christian history?
At the very least, CNN should be transparent about the reason for the sudden change in how they refer to the Temple Mount in headlines.
