PLO youth magazine denies existence of ancient Jewish Temple in Jerusalem

“As a show of solidarity with our beloved Al-Aqsa [Mosque], the girls of Deir Sudan school held… activities expressing condemnation and anger over the actions of the Jews – desecration of Al-Aqsa and the construction of a Jewish synagogue in proximity to it, and a search for the alleged Temple under the foundations of Al-Aqsa. The students expressed their anger and sorrow over what is happening…”

Note: Zayzafuna is a PLO magazine for children funded by the PA. The magazine, which includes material written by both the magazine’s staff and child readers, represents the values of the educators and serves as a window into the minds of the Palestinian children submitting material to the magazine. PMW’s book Deception includes a chapter on Zayzafuna. Following PMW’s exposure of Hitler glorification in the February 2011 issue, UNESCO halted its funding of the magazine. View UNESCO’s statement and PMW's bulletin on the December 2011 issue of the magazine.
