1929 Mufti of Jerusalem on Temple Mount

Synagogue on Temple MountThe Grand Mufti of Jerusalem (Haj Amin al Hasanji Husseini):

The Haram el-Sharif has been Moslem property for thirteen and a half centuries, but in the remote past it was the site of three successive Jewish temples. The structures of the holy area, including the walls, are Moslem; but it is believed that three of the lower courses of masonry in the western wall are remnants of the last, the Herodian temple. For this reason, centuries ago Jews developed the practice of going there to lament over the destruction of the temple. Their lamentations, it should be noted, are for the destruction of the temple of Solomon, of which no remnant remains at the Western Wall or anywhere else.”
