To the Editor:
The large volume of letters in your April issue in response to David Bar-Illan’s article, “60 Minutes and the Temple Mount” [February], shows how much the slanted reporting by 60 Minutes has outraged objective observers.
In early October I obtained an amateur video made by a worshipper on that fateful day during Sukkot. For about 20 minutes the video shows a rain of stones and boulders flying over the Wall onto the plaza reserved for worshippers. Meanwhile, the police are assembled at the foot of the ramp leading up to the upper Temple Mount. Only at the very end of the film are the police seen charging through the gate leading to the upper area. Any reversal of this sequence is, of course, pure fabrication and would have required serious splicing of film. . . .
