A special Knesset committee which met yesterday to discuss the ongoing destruction of Jewish antiquities on the Temple Mount, saw MKs and Antiquities Authority officials debating how best to end the alarming phenomenon atop Judaism’s holiest site.

The destruction of Jewish artifacts by the Islamic Waqf trust is seen by many observers as part of a concerted effort to Islamize the Temple Mount, by erasing all traces of the Jewish Temples. Islamist and Palestinian Authority figures have long denied the Jewish connection to the Temple Mount and Jerusalem in general, despite the wealth of archaeology and historical documentation to the contrary. Those present at the committee called for greater political involvement by government ministers in tackling the phenomenon—including the Prime Minister itself.

But speaking to Arutz Sheva, one veteran Temple Mount activist said he had little faith in the political establishment’s willingness to tackle the problem, given the decades of inaction by successive Israeli governments. …

Passion has been excised from the heart of the righteous.

ALL people of faith do indeed stand ... but they cling to life too tightly.

Personally, I'm working on my psyche to try to gin up some meaningful activism


We will continue to read about and wish for, .. "I wish someone would do something" ... not connecting the dots, looking in the mirror and declaring, "Thou art the man."

What further proof would the world need to understand that the muslim mind is deranged by powerful cognitive dissonance. There is a whole engineering corps dedicated to the industrial-scale destruction of something the existence of which they, themselves, deny. They necessarily handle materials which absolutely disprove their religious world view. Yet they neither repent or convert.

Islam is a damnation.

Join your local Tea Party and say, “here am I. What can I do to help”. There’s plenty good you can do.

And we should be starting to do the same over on this side of the ocean. Mosques are everywhere up here - preparing their subjects for jihad.

I remain flabbergasted that the Israelis surrendered the Temple Mount to any foreign jurisdiction when, even to the present hour, they have consistently advertised an unwillingness to surrender a whole Jerusalem to their blood-oath enemies.

What is Jerusalem if it is without the Temple Mount?
