I'M GOING WITH YES FOR BOTH: Was there a Jewish temple in Jerusalem? Were the pyramids built in Egypt? (Jeremiah J. Johnston and Craig A. Evans, Fox News). Regular readers of PaleoJudaica will be familiar with the stories covered in this article.

For the unfortunate 2015 article on the Temple Mount in the New York Times, see here and links. For the unhelpful comments on the Temple Mount by the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, also in 2015, see here. For the recent terrorist attach just outside the Temple Mount, see here. For more on Yasser Arafat's odd claim that the ancient Jewish Temple was in Nablus, see here and here.
