Posted on 08/28/2013 6:02:29 AM PDT by NYer
Eyewitnesses told Turkish media this week that a portion of the Temple Mount platform near the Al Aqsa Mosque has collapsed, creating a serious safety hazard and a possible threat to the stability of the Islamic structure.
If the report is accurate, it would be the second serious collapse on the Temple Mount in the past five years.
Palestinian officials claim that the collapses are caused by deliberate Israeli action to bring down the Al Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock so that the Jewish Temple can be rebuilt.
But archaeologists and engineers have been warning for years that the heavy construction projects being carried out by the Muslims atop the Temple Mount are destabilizing the huge number of ancient structures and water cisterns that riddle the sacred plateau.
Many believe it is only a matter of time before most of the platform collapses. And there are fears such a collapse could occur during Ramadan, when upwards of 100,000 Muslims gather atop the Temple Mount for weekly prayers.
It needs to collapse!!!!
Jerusalem shall be trodden underfoot of the gentiles ,until the time of the gentiles be fulfilled!
They accuse Israel of doing this because it’s exactly what they would do in the same situation. Their entire history is of destroying antiquities in the spread of their “religion”. Look at the museums in Egypt being looted, or the 1000 yr old Buddha in Kashmir that was blown up by the Taliban
Blame others/ deny scientific evidence / full speed ahead. These are the reasons that Islamic civilization remains in the Dark Ages. Same old, same old.
This is a big sign that we are in the end times!
shouldn’t be too long now..
Good! Moar please!
“Many believe it is only a matter of time before most of the platform collapses. And there are fears such a collapse could occur during Ramadan, when upwards of 100,000 Muslims gather atop the Temple Mount for weekly prayers.”
Oh Nooooo! That would be terrible. :-)
Nice picture...looks like a mass “butt crack” inspection in progress. I didn’t know there were that many plumbers in Jerusalem.
That would be great if true.
The muslims did this to themselves. They constructed the foundations badly: subterranean soil is being washed away after every rain.
I suspect that the whole abominable structure is going to disappear into a sinkhole that stinks of crap. And no-one will be to blame except the muslims themselves.
I have never seen a pic of them praying in that manner. It sure looks weird with their dome in the background
Yes, but the world will blame Israel. And so it begins..
I’m not a betting person by nature, but I would lay a bet on Damascus being in her very last days of existence.
