Palestinian leaders are warning the Islamic world that Israel is going to build a Temple in Jerusalem

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: David I read a warning coming out of the Palestinian Authority, it's been used before but I want to see how intense you believe this may well be right now. They're warning that Israel is planning to build a holy temple on the Temple Mount on Jerusalem. Is that a scare tactic or are they seriously considering that a viable possibility?

DD: They look at the overall political situation in Israel and they don't expect that would be something eminent. But as we've been talking about over the past several years they're also watching the growing talk in Israel about rebuilding the Temple amongst Israeli politicians and more and more Jews going up there to pray. So its certainly becoming more of a possibility in their view. I think the claim that its about to happen or that they think its about to happen is overstated. It keeps the focus on that issue for their people and there's nothing they can rally the streets of the Palestinians more than Haram al-sharif, the Temple Mount and they know that and they use that when they need to.

JD: And was not that the game plan for Yasser Arafat when he thought he was losing just shout to the world that the Israeli's are going to put the Jewish temple on the Temple Mount. That was one of his strategies was it not?

DD: Well it was Jimmy and of course it not only rallies the Palestinians but it rallies the Islamic world, the whole Islamic world basically. So if they want to boast their support from Indonesia for instance, from Malaysia, from north Africa and anywhere on Earth where there are Muslim communities or countries, 56 countries that are Muslim majority countries that's a good issue to put forward and they know that and so they use it all the time. But at the same time I think they are genuinely worried that this is an increasing possibility and they don't like that thought at all.

JD: David Dolan with a report on how Palestinian leadership is warning the Islamic world that Israel is preparing to build a Jewish temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

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

The Palestinian leadership is partially correct. There are Jews in Jerusalem that have prepared to build a temple on the Temple Mount. All preparations have been made and they actually could start work on rebuilding that temple even today. In fact that's exactly what the Bible calls for, that's Daniel 9:27, Matthew 24:15 and Revelation 11:1-2. The stage is indeed set for the rebuilding of a temple in Jerusalem.
