Skip to comments.Jerusalem's Dome of the Rock is Hate Speech in Stone; Its removal Urgent

The Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem is an act of hate and of hate speech by Muslims against Jews and Christians. Neither the US nor Britain would ever allow such an object to be created, nor such a collection of slander to be publicly displayed.
Remember, every bit of that oh-so-pretty Arabic arabesque script on this little shrine dating from AD 691, is a slander-in-stone, posing as a sermon-in-stone, against Christianity which had ruled Jerusalem for centuries under Byzantium prior to the Islamic takeover in the AD 638-40 era. "God has no Son. It is Blasphemy to Say He has Taken a Son." would be the least of what is written there. This Dome is not a mosque, and it is an artifact of pure hatred against Christianity.
It also is an artifact of pure hatred against Judaism, for it occupies and stands upon the holy precincts of the Temples of Solomon and of Herod (first and second Temples)...a dog in the manger as it were, which neither itself worships, nor allows the Jews to worship, God as He ought to be. This building is preventing the Jews from re-establishing the Temple and its sacrifices for the good of all mankind and the peace of the world.
As I understand it, the Dome itself stands over the area reserved solely for Jewish men (court of Israel) in the time of Jesus, including the area of the altar of sacrifice and the "holy" (as opposed to Most Holy) place of the Temple (Bet ha Mikdosh) itself. I believe that the place of the Ark of the Covenant in the Most Holy, however, stands on the western steps leading up to the octagonal Dome structure...
Called by Daniel the "Abomination of Desolation" (loathsome thing), this structure was stated in Dan. 11 and 12 to stand until the indignation (wrath) of God against Israel for its sins was over, but that was to end in 1290 or 1335 years from the construction of same in 691. Thus, its fall is up in 1981 or in 2026, and I think the 1981 date referred to the finding of the Ark in that year...
Since in our liberal times, Westerners are called upon to accomodate every nuance of the sensiblilities of Muslims here in our homelands, perhaps Muslims in return would be willing to see this insult and injury to Judaism and Christianity removed and made away in our day. Perhaps it could be disassembled stone by stone and set up in Mecca, a city only Muslims are allowed to visit, and thus it could do less harm there.
.. I am reminded of the prophecies by (Hal Lindsey and others) that the Temple Mount is critical in their predictions of war and peace.
Believe him, ignore him, or simply be skeptical about him - I don't know whether he's correct. But as these stories become more common, you've got to wonder.
This is your interpretation (quite novel, at that). To state that Daniel says this is to make your interpretation absolute. Dangerous ground, brother.
Probably the most sure way to WWIII would be to try and do away with the Dome of the Rock. If you think the Palestinian Arabs--and many other Muslims are violent now...
Muslims will never willingly submit to the removal of this ancient mosque--its simply foolish to think otherwise. Besides, as a Christian--I know since Jesus completed the Law and the sacrificial system--it would be blasphemy of the worst sort for the Jews to start up a sacrificial system again.
In accord with prophecy, God will take care of the Temple Mount Himself--in His time, we need not worry about the stupid hateful dome.
THE ROCK OF MY SALVATION
I wonder which will hold up during Armageddon. My bet is on the fellow at the bottom of the screen.
The answer lies in the heart of man - modern or ancient.
The Temple will be rebuilt and filled with the Glory of God. It is the center of the Millennial reign of Christ.
So the Dome is ultimately doomed. When and how? Stay tuned.
Wars of national survival are righteously fought. Wars
of dirt and rock fought in the name of a transcendent deity
belie the notion of transcendence.
But, of course, "hate" and hate-speech can only come FROM--- and cannot be directed AT---Christians and Jews.
The ragheads can kill thousands of Americans and yet the defenders of these diaper-headed idiots on U.S. campuses and television networks are more concerned about hurting their feelings than about saving our Republic.
Islam is about hatred of all that is good and sacred in the history of humanity. Yet the U.S. left wants you to believe that the REAL problem is JERRY FALWELL or conservative Christians. (If the Afghani Broadcasting Company and Peter Jennings and CNN and company have their way, they will successfully convince Americans that fundimental CHRISTIANS are no better, and actually worse, than fundimental ISLAMS!!) Let one American speak a harsh WORD to a towel-head, and you get marathon love-ins of Hollywood stars begging to stop the hate, to give peace a chance. Meanwhile, Mohammedans rape and mutilate and slaughter Christians and Jews from New York to The Philipines to our embassies abroad to Indonesia to Isreal to Spain---and THIS isn't about hate?
We need to eliminate Islam like we did the Nazis and the Soviets. It's them or us. They are bent on conquering the world and imposing upon it their rule. WE are NOT out to conquer anyone; we seek only to allow people to decide for themselves.
If the ragheads still want to dig their wells in the same water table where they drain their sewage, if they want to beat their women and screw their baby sons and worship their cows or the moon or whatever the hell it is the pagan subhumans do, they can go do it. Just don't mess with us.
PS---who could blame Godly people for wiping the obscene grafiti known as Dome of the rock from the Holy Land. Instead, Christians and Jews practice tolerance to a fault----in the case of America we practice it to the point that civilization is exposed to destruction so we won't hurt the feelings of those out to destroy us.
The presence of that awesome and transcendant Being is always present over the Temple Mount, and if you don't believe me(and have an ounce of spiritual insight) go there and pray and be convinced.
Bless the Lord our God, and may His Temple be speedily rebuilt in our days.
But that does not mean that the constant emphasis throughout Scripture, Tanakh and New Covenant alike, upon the symbolism and pageantry and importance of what went on, and will again go on, on this site from the Akeyda (binding of Isaac(Yitzhak) on--...can ever be laid aside for one moment by a believing Jew or Christian, may that false division speedily be erased in our days.
In fact, in Yeshayahu (Isaiah) we are told that even in the eternal Messianic era, thousands of years, we and all nations will still come up to keep Sukkot there...(not room to go on on this)..
In Rev. 3 Jesus says that if we can overcome evil, He will give us (a share in) His White Stone, the eben shetiya atop the Temple Mount. In dramatic and horrible contrast to Satan's black stone at Mecca's ka'aba.
My socks had not been washed for three days. Hope the smell still remains to this day!
