The prospect of rebuilding the Temple is one I’ve sat here and thought about for a bit. I’ve come to these conclusions:
1. There’s no way that Muslims would ever allow their Mosque to be removed peaceably from any angle I’ve looked at it.
2. Removal of everything to clear the way for the Temple would likely not be done in a careful dismantling process (so that these buildings may be
3. The thousands of people visiting this area would need to be denied entry during construction.
Now that I’ve said that, I’ll follow it up with this. Knowing that the Muslim sites can not be removed peaceably, there are only two other
choices. One, you can either forcefully remove them through modern demolition techniques, or through the use of high explosives. Or, two, you can
forget about ever rebuilding the Temple and leave it at that. I can’t see a single way of doing this without a tremendous loss of life, as it is
not possible to remove those of the Muslim faith peaceably from the site.
When considering options, it becomes likely that there are those that would wish to see these sites suffer significant damage during a military
altercation. Having these sites become devastated by incoming missiles would alleviate much of the effort needed to clear the space. If the
bombardment were also to cause significant loss of life, there’s also the possibility that resistance to clearing the area for the Temple will be
Following this line of reasoning, I can only conclude that if the Jewish Temple is to be rebuilt, a regional war must occur. During that war, the
site must be heavily damaged by incoming missiles. The area will need to have a considerable reduction in population either through casualty, or
through displacement due to hostilities. The site will have to remain closed off long enough to clear the area and construct the Temple.
Circumstances will have to be such that the site is not likely to be attacked by Muslims in an act of retribution.
This leaves us with a regional war. It leaves us with a significant loss of life. It leaves us with devastation on the level of being able to secure
the site from retaliatory strikes. This most certainly means devastation of all the local nations. This means a war of epic proportions, or it means
abandoning the prospect of rebuilding the Jewish Temple and going on about life as it is today.

Mr. Netanyahu wishes to take on this task, I’m sure he’ll do so without announcing his intentions to move forward with it publicly.
