WHAT’S THE ISSUE?

The Temple Mount is the holiest place on earth to the Jewish people. As of 1967, the State of Israel holds full, legal rights to the Mount, but handed over administration to the Muslim religious Waqf. The Waqf now attempts to monopolize the site.

Today on the Temple Mount, non-Muslims are discriminated against and are not even allowed to move their lips in silent prayer. They are routinely harassed and abused—forbidden from bringing a Bible or prayer book, and even their access is severely restricted. At the Western Wall, which is under Jewish sovereignty, everyone can respectfully pray.

The Israeli Supreme Court has ruled that Jews must be allowed to pray there. Yet, the Police have a legal loophole to discriminate as they wish. Israel has an obligation to uphold international human rights on the Mount, including freedom of worship (UDHR). The decision now rests in the hands of the Government of Israel, the people of Israel, and your support!

JESUS LOVED THE TEMPLE MOUNT

By John Enarson, Cry For Zion Christian Relations Director

Whatever Christian tradition of interpretation one subscribes to, one thing is clear: Jesus loved the Temple Mount—Mt Zion—where the holy House of God stood. It is well known that Jesus called it his “Father’s House.” His disciples even said that zeal for God’s Temple consumed him, and, like the weeping prophet Jeremiah, Jesus wept when he foresaw its destruction.

WHAT ABOUT THE TEMPLE OF ANTICHRIST?

By John Enarson, Cry For Zion Christian Relations Director

Christians sometimes object to the thought of the Jewish People having sovereignty over the Temple Mount because the Jewish People might rebuild the Temple. In some popular Christian thought, a rebuilt temple in Jerusalem is somehow the ”temple of antichrist” (God forbid). That, however, is not correct according to the New Testament and biblical teaching. Read more

HOW IMPORTANT IS GOD’S TEMPLE MOUNT?

By Jan Willem van der Hoeven, International Christian Zionist Center

As the prophet Ezekiel already shows, it was always in the purpose and heart of God when He said that He would one day bring His people back from all the countries where they had been scattered – that they would come back to His and their land “to serve Him on His holy mountain” in Jerusalem. This is how Ezekiel, centuries before the return to their land, prophesied this… Read more

RECOMMENDED READING

Recommended books to understand the issues and background surrounding the Temple Mount. (Note that Cry For Zion does not officially endorse all the opinions of the individual authors.)

 Book1

For Christians, we recommend The Joy of the Whole Earth: Jerusalem and the Future of the World. This highly current and significant book is a must for Christians to understand the importance and holiness of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. It challenges conventional paradigms, and shifts the focal point of Christian thinking for anyone willing to be confronted by the message of the Bible.

 Book2

For anyone interested in what the archeology of the Temple Mount actually has to say, The Quest by Leen Ritmeyer is the place to start. As an archeological architect working on the Temple Mount for the past 30 years, Ritmeyer has filled over 400 pages with rich illustrations of the Temple Mount’s archeology as well as the history of that archeology. A go-to book for real facts.

 Book3

Ambassador Dore Gold is an Israeli diplomat and has served as advisor to two Israeli Prime Ministers. His book The Fight for Jerusalem gives an excellent overview of the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim history in Jerusalem. Furthermore, the book gives the hard facts on modern diplomacy regarding Jerusalem, peace negotiations, and particularly Jerusalem’s holy sites.

Book4A core part of the conflict over the Temple Mount is sovereignty. The repeatedly failed “two-state solution” proposes to divide Jerusalem and give historic Jerusalem—including the Temple Mount—to an exclusively Muslim, Palestinian state. Managing Editor of the Jerusalem Post, Caroline Glick, has written perhaps the most thorough and definitive debunking of the two-state policy, as well as practically outlining the only realistic alternative in The Israeli Solution: A One State Plan for Peace in the Middle East.
 
Book5Much has been written regarding media bias in the Arab-Israeli conflict (a conflict in which the Temple Mount is central). Yet, no one has done so quite as thoroughly as journalism major Shraga Simmons. During the second Intifada, Simmon’s organisation, Honest Reporting, even managed to bring the king of cable TV news, CNN, to its knees over its abysmally perverted reporting. Read the downright infuriating account in David & Goliath, a must-have resource for anyone working for truth and justice in the Middle East.
Book6

Many who take an interest in the conflict around Jerusalem want a current, inside-look at the Israeli and Palestinian societies. Many have tried, and most fail. But Catch the Jew! really puts its finger on the pulse of today’s Israel. In this “literary sensation,” journalist Tuvia Tenenbom—fluent in Hebrew, Arabic, and more—spends six months getting everyone fr0m politicians to prostitutes to bare their souls in this hilarious, irreverent, and heart-rending book. In the process, he uncovers a Western-funded, NGO-activism-war.
