RAMALLAH: A news survey conducted by the Israeli Ynet news service and the Gesher organization found that about two thirds of the Israeli public want the Second Temple rebuilt. Gesher claims a 4.6 margin of error on a survey of 516 Israelis.

The Temple Mount, which is the foundation of the First and Second temples is today home to Islam’s third-holiest mosque, Al-Aqsa. The Second Temple, built by Herod the Great, was destroyed in 70 A.D. when the Romans sacked Jerusalem.

Sixty-four percent responded favorably to the question of rebuilding the temple commissioned by Herod the Great, while 36 percent responded negatively.

Among the practicing and orthodox Jewish Israelis, virtually all respondents wanted to see the Second Temple rebuilt.

Just under half of secular Israelis — 47 percent — also said they would like to see Herod’s Temple rebuilt.

Eighty percent of respondents said it was “justified” to mark what many Jews consider the saddest day of their history (the destruction of the temple) by rebuilding the temple.

The Dome of the Rock – Originally a Beit Tefillah

I found this fascinating comment at Haaretz online, under their article, Jewish extremism: How real is the threat?

To: Avraham Goldberg and all readers.

The Temple Mount is not holy to the Muslims. It is merely a trick in their battle to destroy the Jewish People.

The Dome of the Rock was built by Caliph Abd al-Malik in 687 as a gift to the Jewish People. Caliph built the Dome, as a place of prayer for the Jews till the Temple would be rebuilt.

It only became a Muslim ‘holy site’ in 1939 by order of the anti-Semitic Mufti of Jerusalem.

May G-D rebuild the Temple speedily in our days!

Update: I have been searching and searching the net…can’t find anything to back this claim. — Ellie

Weeds on the Dome

Posted by avideditor on March 26, 2008

This is proof the only reason the jihadis care about the Dome of the Rock is because we want it. I pray every day that they abomination falls and the third temple will be built.

Weeds, part 2: “As a followup to my first Weeds post:

I just found another book showing a large number of photographs of Jerusalem and the rest of the Holy Land, these from 1904. Called ‘The Cruise of the Eight Hundred to and Through Palestine: Glimpses of Bible Lands’ it is a pictorial recounting of a trip of 800 Sunday School teachers to Palestine.It is fully downloadable in PDF format, as was the book I referred to yesterday.Here again is a scene of the Dome of the Rock, from a different angle, showing the steps to go into it (click to enlarge):Again, notice the huge number of weeds, even on the steps. Notice also what is not in the picture – people.In contrast, once again, here is a similar photograph of the Western Wall of the Temple from the same book:No weeds, lots of people. And the descriptions of the Wall in all of these books are similar, as the writers are struck by the heartfelt sadness that the praying people felt for the destruction of the Temple.The book includes hundreds of photographs and is a lot of fun to browse through.
