The Palestinians say that the Israeli Prime Minister caved in to their pressure and now the Palestinians control the Temple Mount

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: I understand the Mufti has given permission for the Palestinians to return to the Temple Mount and they did return but they returned not only to pray but to throw rocks, they were also throwing bottles. They were saying that this was going to be all out war.

IM: The Palestinian Authority is regularly looking for excuses to incise their people to violence.

JD: Has the Israeli government really caved in Itamar?

IM: Unfortunately I have to agree on this with you on this; they really did cave in.  Unfortunately we’re going to get possibly less terror and violence in short term and I fear we’re going to get more terror and violence in the long term. All they have to do is threaten violence, start violence, kill a few people, murder a few Israeli’s and then Israel will possibly give in. Once a population believes that and I’m sure they believe that right now. Once they believe that they can bring Israeli Prime Minister to his knees by killing the Israeli’s that means that that’s what they’re going to do again every time he has a policy that they disagree with.

JD: Let me ask you this, I mean it seems obvious the answer to the question but in reality it wasn’t those metal detectors or the cameras on the Temple Mount it was the sovereignty of this sacred piece of real estate. The Palestinians wanted to show the Israeli’s hey we are still in charge up here. Isn’t that really the bottom line?

IM: That’s exactly the bottom line. It has nothing to do with desecrating Hamas but from a sovereignty point of view that’s what the Palestinians were trying to oppose on Israel that that they are the sovereigns of the Temple Mount. And that’s why it’s so tragic. This is our holiest place. This is our most significant place throughout history and essentially the Israeli government has caved in and said ok we are accepting your sovereignty now. That’s certainly the political message the Palestinians have received.

JD: Itamar Marcus with the story of the Israeli cave in to the Palestinians over control of the Temple Mount and possible ramifications.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

The Temple Mount in Jerusalem is the most sacred piece of real estate in all of Judaism. The Palestinian people want that piece of real estate for the capital of their state called Palestine.  This Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been going on for 4,000 years since the birth of Esau and Jacob. Jacob became the Jewish people of Israel today and Esau became the Palestinian people.

Obadiah the ancient prophet said that the Palestinian control of the Temple Mount will continue until the coming of the Messiah back to the earth, that’s Obadiah verses 15-18. The recent Israeli-Palestinian conflict on the Temple Mount has set the stage for this prophecy to be fulfilled.
