PA Chief Religious Justice: Even Orthodox Jews deny that the Western Wall is part of the Temple

Dr. Tayseer Al-Tamimi, PA Chief Justice of Religious Court, and Chairman of Supreme Council of Islamic Law:
     "When the Prophet [Muhammad] entered Jerusalem, after landing with his 'riding animal' in the Night Journey from Mecca to Jerusalem, he tied it to the western wall, which is known today [by Muslims] as the al-Buraq Wall, and which the Jews usurped by falsification and deception [saying it is the Western Wall of the Temple]. Orthodox Jewish groups, such as Neturei Karta, denounce all the actions of the Israeli government and the Zionist movement in Jerusalem. They, more than us, say these claims are false and a distortion of the Jewish faith."
