"Hamas warns of 'diplomatic catastrophe'"

TEL AVIV – Neither Israel nor the Palestinian Authority say they have any information President Obama plans to visit the Temple Mount amid Palestinian rumors that such a trip is in the works.

Holiest Jewish site, Islamic claims

The Temple Mount is the holiest site in Judaism. Muslims now claim it is their third holiest site, although their stake changed several times throughout history.

Is it time for the man of sin to sit in the Temple of God yet, and proclaim himself to be god, or shall we wait for another? (tongue-in-cheek, but only a little).

Obama has been much more forthcoming about his true positions recently.

I wonder if he is going there to declare his faith.

I think The Obama will heed the warning from Hamas and not visit the Temple Mount.

Naaah! But as soon as the Third Temple is rebuilt... that will be another story! That’s why I don’t think Obama will visit the Temple Mount...yet.

I hope, after he visits, someone sprays the place with a heavy duty disinfectant.

If he actually does that, check his feet.

Apparently, the Secret Service has developed some footgear that can't be burned up by brimstone.

obama has been wanting to go to that mosque since he was a kid but nobody will see what he does once inside. He’ll go to the temple with the cameras rolling.

Somebody told him that if he went he would likely get stoned. He just smiled and whispered ‘chooommm’.

"The Second Temple was rebuilt in 515 B.C. after Jerusalem was freed from Babylonian captivity. That temple was destroyed by the Roman Empire in A.D. 70. Each temple stood for a period of about four centuries."

I think the math is off a bit.

Oh, BS. The falsestinians only demanded that obama enter by the Lion’s Gate to show that they had full control of their ‘victory mosque’ and that not a single Jew was allowed to accompany him..
