Why does the Mufti lie?

Brian Schrauger from Bridges For Peace News has written an important article regarding the current situation on the Temple Mount (ed. note).

Monday, 26 October 2015. The foremost legal scholar of Islam in Jerusalem is the Grand Mufti, Muhammad Hussein. He recently asserted that the first man, Adam, perhaps with the help of angels, built today’s Dome of the Rock, the 1,300-year-old Islamic shrine that sits atop the Temple Mount in Jerusalem’s Old City. Accordingly, he said, the site has been an Islamic mosque “3,000 years ago and 30,000 years ago.”  Read more

Jewish History on the Temple Mount: Did Jews Abandon It?

One of the most common misconceptions is that Jews abandoned the Temple Mount after the destruction of the second Temple by the hands of the Romans in 70 CE, which is absolutely wrong. I used to believe this myth myself.

As I have studied the actual history of the Temple Mount and what happened to the Jewish presence and prayer on the Mount after the destruction of the second Temple, I was surprised to discover that we have had a continual Jewish presence on the Mount, as well as on the Mt. of Olives east of Mt.

Was the Temple Really on the Temple Mt?

A new, sensationalistic book is causing a stir in Christian prophecy circles. It is a top-seller along with titles like Blood Moons, Deciphering End-Time Prophetic Codes, and the Harbinger. The book by Christian adventurer Robert Cornuke is titled TEMPLE: Amazing New Discoveries that Change Everything About the Location of Solomom’s Temple. Average readers are overwhelmingly positive and seem almost entirely convinced by its message. Out of 192 Amazon reviews, only three are clearly negative (as of this writing)!

“similar in importance to the Discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls” “I Was Amazed! Who Knew All This?” “Filled with jaw-dropping facts.” “This book shatters flawed traditions and rips the lid completely off historical misunderstandings. It will most certainly give intellictual whiplash to anyone bold enough to read this biblical investigative masterpiece.” “the political repercussions from it could alter the complexion of the entire Middle East” (Amazon reviews).

Arab Knesset Members Declare Temple Mount for Muslims Only

“The Arab Raam-Taal party in the Knesset held a meeting on Monday with all its members…At the conclusion of the meeting, an announcement summarizing the contents was distributed in Arabic to the media, and included several important points.

The first statement declared that Jews have no right to enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque, namely the Temple Mount – the holiest site in Judaism.

“The blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque is the holy property of the Muslims only,” wrote the Arab MKs, who added that they oppose propositions in the Knesset to divide the site between Jews and Muslims by setting areas and times for each group’s usage.”
