Muslim Anger over Virtual ‘Third Temple’
Arutz Sheva ^ | 7/24/2013 | Maayana Miskin

Posted on 07/25/2013 8:41:52 AM PDT by xzins

A Jewish website that aims to teach Israelis about the Temple has been met with an angry backlash from the Arab Muslim community.

The Har Hakodesh (lit. “The Holy Mountain”) website includes educational material about the history of the Temple Mount, which was the site of the First Temple and Second Temple. The Temples were the focus of divine service for the Jewish nation.

The site also includes stunning photographs of the Temple Mount, including pictures taken by a non-Jewish photographer from parts of the Mount which Jews may not enter.

What has caused upset in the Muslim world is a representation of the Temple Mount as it would appear with a rebuilt Jewish Temple atop it rather than Al-Aqsa Mosque that currently stands there.

The site has been repeatedly targeted by hackers, and has been the focus of criticism in the Arab media. Sheikh Raed Salah, who heads the hardline northern branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel, has called for an “Islamic awakening” in response to the website.

The desire to see a rebuilt Temple is central to traditional Judaism, and the Amidah prayer, which religious Jews recite three times daily, calls for the Temple to be rebuilt.

Muslims are always blowing up about something.

The website looks like it would be interesting but my anti virus program is giving me a strong warning to avoid it.

War with Islam.

Not if.

But when.

Islam will lose, its already a done deal.
Temple sacrifice will be restored before the tribulation period.
The descendants of Ishmael won’t be any less donkey’s asses after the mad pedophile religion disintigrates though.

So, I guess my idea for site renderings of a pork processing plant in Mecca won’t go over very well.

So what is a Christian, with the epistle to the Hebrews in his bible, to think?
"Obsolete and ready to pass away"

I saw some Angus bacon at the grocery last week. First time I’d ever noticed it. That would probably be ok.

But it would also render the sentiment that gave rise to the idea moot. :>)

Since they're always mad, does that mean good is happening all over the place.

to the Pali-Arabs:
You and your Arab brothers *snickering* have lost everything thru these "pointless wars" since 1948.
You could have help make "the region bloom"; but no, your 7th century Evil Moongod (Allah! = moon deity)
cult keeping pulling you back every time to that hell-hole you call home.

If the virtual temple is freaking them out, wait until the real one is built!

Since it’s by way of some agreement, then perhaps they’ll be just fine with it. Who knows?

It has a lot of colonnades to nowhere, too. I hope the designer isn’t doing real architectural work somewhere!

It’s in Hebrew without any options for other languages, and there is no getting past the like button, which I am not going to press.

It is my understanding that Christians have no stake in a 3rd temple where animal sacrifices would resume. Jesus was the final sacrifice for mankind.

Many, of course, as you know have an eschatological stake in a 3rd Temple. This article shows that, apparently, there’s at least one group of Jews which also has a stake in it. For them it’s to restore practice. For us premillennialists, it is a sign.

None of which disrupts the teaching that Jesus is the final sacrifice for mankind.

I’d say that Jesus is the ONLY sufficient sacrifice ever offered for mankind.

Sites that may be better for English speakers:

Chabad has a large collection of Temple information at
http://www.chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/2269646/jewish/Videos.htm

And then there’s The Temple Institute guider at

Thanks.

Why do you think the jihadists protested this site?

You actually have anti-semetic anti-virus software?

This is getting absurd.

The prophet Ezekiel says that there is going to be a temple in the millenial age, and anyone that doesn’t believe it is on shaky ground calling themselves “Christian.”

When Psalm 83 is fulfilled, Mecca will most likely be a large green glass salad bowl.

I think the two anti’s cancel each other out. Like a double negative.

I can’t even get it to load all the way, but I’m guessing it’s a social media thing.

There used to be a site that sold panoramic pictures of Jerusalem with the Muslim buildings on the Temple Mount carefully photoshopped out.

That’s disappointing as it looked really interesting. I’ve seen scale models of the Temple, and one virtual that one could “walk” through.
