The Islamic Trust, custodians of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, is digging large ditches on the Temple Mount dangerously close to the site of the first and second Jewish temples without archaeological supervision to protect antiquities at Judaism's holiest site.

The project, which involves heavy machinery, has exposed ancient archaeological remains during the dig in the northern section of the Temple Mount, a method of digging that no reasonable archaeologist would conduct in such a sensitive location.

Destruction of the Temple Mount, Judaism's holiest site, by the Muslims is a page out of Bible prophecy for the Last Days.

Over the last decade, the Muslims have taken over 1,000 dump truck loads of artifacts and antiquities off the Temple Mount as they have done illegal construction on Judaism's holiest site. Now the Islamic Trust, the custodians of the Temple Mount, have once again started to destroy this very sacred piece of real estate by doing unsupervised construction, this time very near to the site of the first and second Jewish temples. Ironically, the Muslims protested and even used violent demonstrations against the Jewish archaeological work being carried out just off of the Temple Mount. What looks like a systematic destruction of the Temple Mount by the Muslims has once again attracted the attention of the world to what will be a very controversial site during the Last Days as foretold in Bible prophecy.

The ancient Jewish prophet Zechariah wrote some 2,500 years ago that this would be the case in the Last Days. The Temple Mount would be a center of controversy, Zechariah 12:2-3. The Lord told Zechariah that He was aggressively possessive of the site and sore displeased with the arrogant security of those who would destroy the Temple Mount, Zechariah 1:14-15.
