Ynet – Riots began in East Jerusalem as Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef urged Israelis to stop attempting to enter the flashpoint Temple Mount, claiming that doing so was a religious offense.

    I hate to rain on your parade and most of what the Chritian ministers are preaching, but the temple is not going to be rebuilt until after the battle of Armageddon and the return of the holy one spoken of by your Old Testament prophets. What your focus should be on is staying alive during that process. Now separating the tares from the wheat is going to be a bloody process the Arabs are ready to shed their blood to remove what they consider the tares. Israel must have the stomach to stand against their tyranny, you will either eat or be eaten. Removing the Arab terrorists from your midst is not going to be a cakewalk but it will be nessesary for your survival. Since you are the survivors of Nazi ovens I would think you could stand toe toe with rock throwers and terrorists and give them a speedy send off to Vall Halla.
