For the duration of a 1995 Root and Department lecture in Jerusalem, Professor Nahum Rakover, author and then Deputy Attorney Basic of Israel, publicly agreed with me that it isn’t illegal for Christians or Jews to pray upon the Temple Mount, even nevertheless it is forcibly prevented by the law enforcement.

I had expressed the disappointment we (the Temple Mount Faithful and luckily, now, numerous many others) sense when we stick to the legislation, receive the important law enforcement permits for our lawful demonstrations, and even get hold of written Supreme Court docket acceptance of our steps, only to be denied “flexibility of accessibility” to our most holy web site, the Temple Mount, and to be harshly taken care of with contempt for even seeking to exercise our democratic rights!

I questioned Deputy Attorney General Rakover why the Israeli authorities was, in result, encouraging people to act outside of the law (which they know we’ve never carried out, not like other teams who truly feel why trouble squandering your time attempting to motive with corrupt officers), as very well as rewarding militant Muslims for their terrorist threats of riots and violence (if Israel have been to essentially uphold their 1967 law that assures – in crafting – “flexibility of accessibility” to the Temple Mount) and bizarrely punishing law-abiding men and women by denying them entry to the Temple Mount. Why not take away the risk? Is just not that rational? Is just not that legal?

Professor Nahum Rakover generally mentioned that we’re in this problem currently due to the fact NOT Sufficient Persons WANT TO Exercising THEIR Appropriate to that religious web page – the Temple Mount!

Why must Israel alter the status quo when they are not below any stress to do so? It can be been explained politicians never see the light-weight until eventually they sense the heat. Shame on us! As I have published in a letter printed in the Jerusalem Put up, the Temple Mount is not in our palms, for the reason that it really is not in our hearts and minds.

I was later unjustly deported for highlighting the plight of the Temple Mount underneath Nazi-Muslim profession in just an report published through Jerusalem and Israel, calling for the restoration of the Temple Mount as the Temple Mount – a Property of Prayer for All Peoples – which the Significant Court docket of Israel dismissed as harmful thoughts.

Why ought to Jews proceed to pray at the Western Wall, a web page selected by the Turks for Jewish worship as a substitute of the Temple Mount, and keep on to post to this kind of a Gentile decree relatively than obey the biblical command to ascend the Temple Mount?

Why obey gentlemen in excess of God? Is just not that idolatry? Isn’t really that immoral? Is just not God Israel’s King, Israel’s only Partner? Who are the nations to dictate what God’s spouse really should do?

Why are Jews collecting at the pitiful Western Wall to mourn the destruction of the Temple? Do some thing constructive and Desire Jewish authorized and biblical rights to the Temple Mount.

Fortunately, the 3rd Temple is coming soon!
