Archaeologist and member of Fatah's Jerusalem branch Abir Zayyad: “In the last two days [Israelis] have appeared with a seal on which is written ‘ruler of the city,’ without the name of the ruler of the city being noted, because the mention of the name would reveal that this name is Canaanite and it is an Arab name. The origin of this seal is from 2,700 years ago. Of course [the Israelis] have used a term that says it is written in ancient Hebrew. All language researchers know that there is no such thing as an ancient Hebrew language, but rather there is what is called the Canaanite language and the Hebrew language today uses letters that were used in the Canaanite language. Therefore, this seal belongs to the Canaanite period, and all the discoveries that have been revealed from the Canaanite period verify the term ‘ruler of the city.’”

Researcher Ahmed Safadi: “[The occupation] is even attempting to control the airspace over the Al-Aqsa Mosque, since there are plans to connect the Mount of Olives to the Al-Aqsa Mosque with a cable car and the light rail, in addition to the Israel Railway plan. All of these changes are in order to empty Jerusalem of its Arab residents.”

The Al-Buraq Wall - Islam's Prophet Muhammad is said to have rode during his Night Journey from Mecca to "al aqsa mosque", i.e., "the farthest mosque" (Quran, Sura 17), and there tied his miraculous flying steed named Al-Buraq to a "stone" or a "rock." (Jami` at-Tirmidhi, Book 47, Hadith 3424). In the 1920's, Arab Mufti Haj Amin Al-Husseini decided to identify the Western Wall of the Temple in Jerusalem as that "rock" or "stone," and since then Muslims refer to the Western Wall as the "Al-Buraq Wall."
