|The head of the Islamic Movement in Israel, Sheikh Raad Salah, has warned the National Union party in Israel not to proceed with plans for building a synagogue on the Temple Mount. The party announced the plans a couple of months ago with the goal of providing a place for Jews to pray on the historic site. Christians and Jews are currently forbidden by the Israeli police to pray on the mount, for fear of inciting the Jordanian Islamic Waqf who administer the site. Sheikh Raad Salah has stated that if the Israelis even think of building on the mount, it will be over their dead bodies... |
Quote: ""The timing of the publication [of this plan] is not coincidental," the Islamic Movement states, "and it jibes with the increased calls for expulsion [of Arabs], the implementation of the policy of religious persecution and national discrimination, and the giving of a green light to the construction of the Third Temple." "We remind, for the 1,000th time, that the entire Al-Aqsa mosque, including all of its area and alleys above the ground and under it, is exclusive and absolute Moslem property, and no one else has any rights to even one grain of earth in it." "We remind the Israeli establishment, which stands behind these plans, that the problem of Al-Aqsa and Jerusalem is not just a Palestinian problem, but a Palestinian, Arab and Islamic problem. The day the Al-Aqsa Mosque is harmed, Heaven forbid, all the Arab and Islamic nations will call to prevent this damage. Watch out! Beware of merely the thought of hurting or desecrating the mosque."
Interestingly, even the Sheikh has some insight into motives behind the efforts to build a synagogue on the mount, stating it will amount to a green light to the construction of the Third Temple. The Third Temple will of course be constructed during the beginning of the seven year tribulation period, and subsequently be defiled by the Antichrist.
