Tel Aviv Here is what bias against Israel looks like. Three Israeli teenagers are abducted by the terrorist group Hamas, and after a desperate weeks-long search for the boys, they are finally founddead in shallow graves near the site of the abduction. While all this is happening, Hamas instigates a new round of missile attacks from Gaza, firing 56 rockets at southern Israeli communities. The Obama administration's response? Express sympathy but call on Israel to refrain from responding.
Moments after the news broke today that the bodies of the teenagers had been found, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said the U.S. was "urging restraint"that is, urging Israel not to respond to the murder of its citizens.
Likewise the president's condolence statement concluded with an admonition that "all parties refrain from steps that could further destabilize the situation." Make no mistakethis is not a call on "all parties." It is a call directly to Israel, as Hamas already acted to "destabilize the situation" by abducting and murdering three teenagers and it continues to "destabilize the situation" by launching dozens of rockets a day at Israel, including 16 this morning. Throughout this rocket campaign Obama issued no statements calling on Hamas to stop "destabilizing the situation." Hamas is prosecuting a multifaceted terror offensiveand Obama's position is to call on Israel not to respond, on the grounds that that would be "destabilizing."

Talking about rebuilding the Temple ... there is some opinion from the Bible and also from the site itself that suggests the Dome of the Rock will stay there, while the Third Temple will be built to the north, and straight in line with the Golden Gate (on an east/west axis).
Also, talking about restraint ... Israel has already DEMOLISHED two homes of two of the killers of the boys.They already know who two of the killers are!
I’ve read about letting Al Aqsa stay in place, but not the Dome of the Rock. None of the arguments I’ve read include references to the Bible. Can you, please, give more details?
Here’s my prediction: Israel wouldn’t dare take out the Dome of da Rock or every Muslim in the World would go nuts. I think God will see that it’s taken out by the Muslims themselves. They’re going to be lobbing artillery into Israel one of these days, and get a direct hit...on da dome. Problem solved, and they can’t blame Israel.
Blasting Hamas into cinders would indeed be destabilizing. It would utterly destabilize the terrorist offensive.
In the Bible, some commentators say that when the measurements are made for the Temple, that the reference to not measuring the outer court is a reference to it being under the control of the Gentiles, meaning that the Temple doesn’t have unlimited room and the mount is shared with the Gentiles.
That makes sense, as in the political world, that would be a solution to Third Temple without affecting the Dome of the Rock.
1 I was given a reed like a measuring rod and was told, “Go and measure the temple of God and the altar, and count the worshipers there.
2 But exclude the outer court; do not measure it, because it has been given to the Gentiles. They will trample on the holy city for 42 months.
I don’t think there’s any need it remove the Dome of the Rock, because I don’t think it was located there at all. I think it was located in front of the Golden Gate and the Dome of the Rock can stay.
The only problem is that the “outer court” would not be able to be built, because it would go over to the Dome of the Rock ... and that’s why I think God said to leave off measuring the outer court because it had been given to the Gentiles.
If this ISIS thing causes a world war and it gets ugly, just note Obama is on the Muslim side.
