The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict is heating up as both parties focus on the most sacred piece of real estate in the world, the Temple Mount

JD: The headline Jewish Israeli members of Knesset defiled the Moslem holy sites according to Mahmoud Abbas they’re talking about Moslem holy sites. I would imagine that they’re talking about the Temple Mount. How do they claim the Temple Mount as a Moslem holy site?

IM: The Palestinian Authority claims the entire Temple Mount as a holy site they claim the Western Wall as if it was a Moslem holy site. They like other people for many many years saying it never was a Jewish holy site, there never was a Jew who prayed at the Western Wall. Then he says because the Jews have no connection, never were in Jerusalem, there never was a Temple, it’s all fictitious Jewish history. We’re dealing with a Palestinian Authority who has rewritten all of history taken the Jewish people out of the land put themselves there in our place and there for everything is Moslem holy sites and if a Jew goes to the Temple Mount it’s defiling a Moslem holy site.

JD: One thing that is true and this pronouncement from the Palestinian media that the Jews want to build a Temple on the Temple Mount in particular where that gold dome building is located. Now that’s a true statement but the Jews are not willing to start construction of the Temple Mount are they?

IM: The only thing that is actually even being proposed they’re talking about building a synagogue essentially. I mean a Temple Mount is gigantic and now there are two mosques on the Temple Mount the silver dome and the gold dome. But there’s plenty of room and again the fear is and Israel is giving in to threats of violence and terror. Of course it should be considered if it was a synagogue that was there and the Moslems wanted a mosque to be near by Israel would be giving in. But Jews don’t go around killing Moslems when there’s an front to our religious feelings. But Moslems are taught by their leaders that this is something they should do and when they go out and kill an Israeli they are rewarded.

JD: Itamar Marcus with details behind the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as both parties are focused on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

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

Itamar’s report is tangible evidence that Zechariah the ancient Jewish prophet Zechariah was right when he wrote the prophecy of Zechariah 12:2 & 3 that Jerusalem will be the center of controversy in the last days. The conflict between the Palestinians and the Jews over the Temple Mount will only intensify the closer we get to the return of Jesus Christ. Jesus when he does return will build his Temple on this sacred piece of real estate that’s found in Zechariah 6:12. This conflict over the Temple Mount is simply a precursor for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
