Hi, Tovey.

I tend to like THESE guys. They are strictly Orthodox Jews who, unlike so many of their co-religionists, are interested in fulfilling Torah by actually DOING something instead of discouraging and banning things.

I have not carefully studied prophecies concerning the rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem. I do have this opinion on the matter, though, based on facts that ought to be obvious to even Biblically ignorant people:

The Temple Mount in Jerusalem literally is capped by rubble from the First and Second Temples. By any stretch of reasoning, then, it is sacred JEWISH ground, having been dedicated to the worship of the God of Israel. Islamic and Christian shrines do not belong there, and a Third Temple does.

By extension, world political leaders who seek to defend the presence of Muslim and other idolatrous buildings on the site, and who seek to keep the site under non-Jewish control, are committing a crime against the Jewish people. That includes Barack Obama, of course, as well as Binyamin Netanyahu. It goes without saying that in this respect, devils such as Yasser Arafat are in the service of Satan.

So much for the obvious -- which, unfortunately, it is the duty of righteous men to regularly repeat.

Pss.123
[1] Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens.
[2] Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so our eyes wait upon the LORD our God, until that he have mercy upon us.
[3] Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us: for we are exceedingly filled with contempt.
[4] Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those that are at ease, and with the contempt of the proud.

Pss.124
[1] If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, now may Israel say;
[2] If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us:
[3] Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:
[4] Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:
[5] Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.
[6] Blessed be the LORD, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.
[7] Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.
[8] Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.

Pss.125
[1] They that trust in the LORD shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever.
[2] As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the LORD is round about his people from henceforth even for ever.
[3] For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous; lest the righteous put forth their hands unto iniquity.
[4] Do good, O LORD, unto those that be good, and to them that are upright in their hearts.
[5] As for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways, the LORD shall lead them forth with the workers of iniquity: but peace shall be upon Israel.

The Jews of Israel need an abrupt awakening to their God. As for their enemies, God will swiftly destroy them. I eagerly await that day.
