TA-THREATS: Activist Says Temple Mount Destruction is Worthy Cause

Starting Saturday there have been several warnings from Israeli officials dealing with a terrorist attack by extremist Jewish groups that want to target Muslim holy sites and specifically the Dome of the Rock on the Temple Mount. Now, a member of the Temple Mount loyalist group that wishes to build a Jewish temple on the Temple Mount and destroy the Dome of the Rock has responded saying that this is a worthy cause.
“Blowing up the Dome of the Rock is a worthy act”, Yehuda Etzion, one of the leaders of the Movement of the Temple Mount Loyalists and a former convicted member of the “Jewish underground”, has told Army Radio this (Sunday) morning.

Etzion’s words came as a response to Public Security Minister Tzachi Hanegbi’s comments on Channel Two’s ‘Meet the Press’ by which, “The prospects that Jewish extremists could carry out an attack on the Temple Mount in order to prevent the disengagement plan from being implemented are growing”.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

The comments by the activist are causing chaos in the Israeli government.

This is a very serious issue at hand. If the Dome of the Rock were to be destroyed by Jews there would definately be a new holy war. All muslims would unite and purge the Jews from Israel, whether the citizens held the same views as those who commited the acts of terrorism or not.

The rememberance day of Tish’a Be’av Tzom is coming soon, which is a day where the Jewish people remember the destruction of the first and second temples. Many Jews who would support building a third temple want to march to the temple mount to remember that day. This could be seen as a potential terror strike by Arabs and could also lead to terrible consequences.

This is a delicate issue and will be discussed more in the coming days.

On the upside, born again christians would be dancing in the street waiting to be raptured on out of here. And I'd be on my knees praying, please take them lord.

If that happened, you would indeed see WW3 break out.
But there is the ability to have both temples on the same bit of ground, the mount is big enough.

However the christians won't be rejoicing UNTIL the temple is rebuilt and the sacrifices are commenced.
