The oil, which the Temple Institute said required “decades of painstaking research and preparation,” will be featured in a festive procession through Jerusalem’s Old City on the 7th night of Hanukkah. The video below shows how the Temple Institute oil was harvested and prepared.

    It is now becoming a tragic race between the Jewish destroyers of Israel funded by the Muslim petrodollars and the Jewish people who seek their indentity and soul.

    In the end Judiasim will win because we have G-d batting on our side.

    I for one support the Temples holy work and wish it all success.
