Ynet – Israel will not make any changes to the regulations on the Temple Mount, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told his Cabinet on Sunday, after days of unrest and protests over the closure of the site, which is holy to both Jews and Muslims.

  • WE ARE RUNNING OUT OF TIME. · almost at 7500 HITS PLEASE SHARE . This is the only way I can speak out. I have a small not rich synagogue and you are my voice. Thank you Christians for Israel for you continued help. I am a product of the holocaust, a son of survivors who lost most of their family. Tomorrow is election day. If Israel is destroyed by a nuclear Iran we will have another holocaust.

    HILLARY = OBAM 3, and 4

    Another holocaust is possible. If it happened once it can happen again. Thank G-d we have Israel. We need to do everything possible to keep Israel militarily strong. Jews get out of Europe. There can be no compromise regarding Israel nor can we depend on the good will of others. This unfortunately is a lesson that many Jews have never learned. Never forget, never forgive never again. Rabbi Dr. Bernhard Rosenberg
