Israel's Chief Military Rabbi questions Islamic religious significance of Al-Aqsa compound

Israel's Chief Military Rabbi Brig. Gen. Rafi Peretz has claimed that the religious significance of Jerusalem's al-Haram al-Sharif in Islam is an invention, stating that the vast majority of Muslims know nothing about the Quran.

During a lecture at the Otzem Pre-Military Torah Academy in Moshav Naveh, he claimed that Muslims have no real reason to pray at Temple Mount, known as al-Haram al-Sharif (The Noble Sanctuary) in Arabic.

"The only mosque any holiness is attributed to is Al-Aqsa. The rest of the Temple Mount has no religious significance," Peretz claimed.

"What is the Al-Aqsa Mosque?" Peretz asked. "It says in the Quran 'make me a mosque on the edge.' Al-Aqsa is on the edge. The edge of what? Mecca? The edge of the Arabian Peninsula. When they bow, they bow to Mecca but their backside is turned to the Temple Mount, because the edge for them is the edge of the Arabian Peninsula. So what are they doing on the Temple Mount?"

He added: "Jerusalem isn't mentioned in the Quran even once. Not even in a hint. The Arabs are imagining it."

"Ninety percent of the Arabs don't know a thing about the Quran. I tell you with full authority. We know better than many of them," he said.
