While reading the Gospels, we can encounter passages which puzzle us. One such passage concerns a statement made by Jesus in response to questions on the part of his disciples concerning the destruction of the Jewish Temple and the end of the age (Luke 21:5-7).

For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days!

Agree, and if you consider the state of the Holy Land in general and Jerusalem in particular before the re-birth of the State of Israel, I would call it "the abomination that causes desolation".
