A leading Israeli archaeologist says the Moslems have committed a barbaric action on Jerusalem's Temple Mount

Dr. Gabby Barkai, one of Israel's leading archaeologists, has claimed that the Moslems have committed barbaric actions on the most sensitive place in archeology for the Jewish nation, the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

Dr. Barkai said that the dig on the Temple Mount, with tractors and heavy equipment as part of infrastructure work to repair faulty electrical lines on the ancient compound recently, was the most damaging to date and must be stopped.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

As the Moslems do damage to Judaism's holiest site, the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, the Last Days scenario found in Bible prophecy draws ever so close to fulfillment.

For over a month, Muslim workers from the Islamic Trust that has custodial rights to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem have been digging on this very sensitive site using tractors and heavy equipment that many say is doing horrific damage to the Temple Mount. Both Dr. Gabby Barkai and Dr. Eilat Mazar, leading archaeologists in Israel say that this is a barbaric act that must not happen and must be stopped.

According to decades old regulations in place at the Temple Mount, Israel maintains overall security control at the site while the Islamic Trust is in charge of day-to-day administration of the ancient compound. The Israeli government has overlooked the broad-scale Islamic construction on the site which has resulted in archaeological damage because of the political sensitivities involved.

This report is evidence that the Last Days scenario found in Bible prophecy is near fulfillment. I am speaking of the prophet Zechariah, for example, when he wrote that Jerusalem and the Temple Mount would be a heavy weight for those controlling the compound and the center of controversy in the Last Days, Zechariah 12:2-3. The ancient Jewish prophet Ezekiel said that the site will house the holy Jewish temple forever, Ezekiel 37:26, 28.

Moslem destruction on the Temple Mount is indeed setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
