Sheikh Yousef Salami, a Muslim preacher at Al Aqsa Mosque on the Temple
Mount in Jerusalem, said that this sacred spot is an Islamic holy site
as determined by the Creator of the world and as indicated in the Koran
and shall belong to Muslims forever.
The sheikh's statement was in response to a ruling by Israel's attorney
general that the Temple Mount in Jerusalem is part of Israeli territory
and Israeli law applies to this holy site.
The Temple Mount was left in the hands of an Islamic Trust by the
Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Dayan at the time of the reunification of
Jerusalem during the Six Day War in 1967 and the Muslims have since
then tried to remove every evidence of any Jewish presence at this
Jewish holy site.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
A statement by a Muslim preacher that the Temple Mount in Jerusalem is
an Islamic holy site and will belong to the Muslims forever is setting
the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
Shiekh Yosef Salami stated recently that the Temple Mount in Jerusalem
belongs to the Muslims and will belong to them forever based on the
Koran. The shiekh said that the holy site was an Islamic site so
determined by the Creator of the world. Since the reunification of
Jerusalem during the Six Day War in 1967, the Islamic Trust has had
custodial control of the Temple Mount but Israel claims sovereignty over
this holy site. The Jews say that the Temple Mount is the most sacred
site in all of Judaism which is backed up by God's Word, the Bible.
God promised Jewish King David this holy site for a temple that one day
will stand on the Temple Mount forever, II Samuel 7. Jesus said He would
come back to Jerusalem and build that temple one day, Zechariah 1:16.
The Temple Mount is the holy mountain of God according to Daniel 9:16,
20; a place where the Lord said He would dwell among His people, the
Jewish people, forever, Psalm 132:13-14.
This pronouncement by a Muslim preacher that the Temple Mount will
belong to the Muslims forever is indeed setting the stage for Bible
prophecy to be fulfilled.
