For ABC Wednesday "I" Day, I find it incredible, the rumor that led to today's riots on the eastern side of Jerusalem..
Incitement by the Islamic Movement in Israel and by Hamas urged Palestinians to make a "Day of Rage" and to defend al-Aksa mosque (on the Temple Mount) from a perceived approaching Jewish take-over.
They told the people that after last night's dedication of the Hurva (see previous post) Synagogue, which is in the Jewish Quarter of the Old City, the Jews would enter the (Muslim-administered) Temple Mount and lay a cornerstone for the Third Temple.
Believe me, this little play model of the Third Temple (with my reflection like cherub wings) displayed in the window of a gift shop in the Jewish Quarter is the closest thing to a real-life Temple that we will ever see in Jerusalem.
No one is going up to the Temple Mount to rebuild the Temple.
