Should Israel Take Control Over The Temple Mount?

  • That (West Bank, Gaza, Golan heights, etc) belongs to us

    The Arab-Isreli war, the Six day war and Yom Kippur war brought great expansion for Israel, because at this time it controlled not only Gaza, Golan Heights and the West Bank but the entire Sinai peninsula and if these lands were still officially (De jure or annexed) as one of Israel's districts, this would have been good not only for Israel, but especially for trinitarian Christians who would have been able to completely christianize Gaza, West Bank, Golan heights, and the Sinai peninsula. Making Israel a place where muslims who secretly want to convert to trinitarian Christianity can do it here in Israel since there is no islamic laws or muslim religious police and this would have been good in reintroducing trinitarian Christianity in the middle east.

  • Jerusalem is the capital of Israel..

    I fully support Moshe Feiglin for having the courage of his convictions to ignore Netanyahu's demand that no one visit the Temple Mount and make a visit to the site. My position may upset some people but that doesn't dissuade me from positing my argument that the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock were erected after the conquest and reconquest of Jerusalem having been built on the ruins of others. It represents a symbol of victory of Islam over other religions and is a historical affront. The Islamic armies have been defeated and removed. This is the capital of Israel and as such they should exercise authority over the site rather than outrageously coddle hateful Muslims that have the special privilege that only they may pray at the site continuing their long tradition of violence, intimidation, harassment and other derogatory behaviors that go back before Israel declared independence. They have no special right in this case.

    The Temple Mount is the holiest site in Judaism, which regards it as the place where God's divine presence is manifested more than any other place. According to the rabbinic sages whose debates produced the Talmud, it was from here the world expanded into its present form and where God gathered the dust used to create the first human, Adam. Since at least the first century CE, the site has been associated in Judaism with the location of Abraham's binding of Isaac, a tradition assimilated by Islam, which however later identified the site of that ritual with Mecca.[2] According to the Bible, both Jewish Temples stood at the Temple Mount, though there is no proof for the first temple.[3] However, the identification of Solomon's Temple with the area of the Temple Mount is widespread. According to the Bible the site should function as the center of all national life—a governmental, judicial and, of course, religious center.[citation needed][improper synthesis?][4] During the Second Temple period it functioned also as an economic center. According to Jewish tradition and scripture (2 Chronicles 3:1-2), the first temple was built by King Solomon the son of King David in 957 BCE and destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 BCE. The second was constructed under the auspices of Zerubbabel in 516 BCE and destroyed by the Roman Empire in 70 CE. Afterwards the site remained undeveloped for six centuries, until the Arab conquest.[5] Jewish tradition maintains it is here a Third and final Temple will also be built. The location is the holiest site in Judaism and is the place Jews turn towards during prayer. Due to its extreme sanctity, many Jews will not walk on the Mount itself, to avoid unintentionally entering the area where the Holy of Holies stood, since according to Rabbinical law, some aspect of the divine presence is still present at the site.[6] It was from the Holy of Holies that the High Priest communicated directly with God.
