I Have Alot of Questions

I have alot of questions.

INN News reports: “Meir Porush (UTJ) called on PM Netanyahu to throw MK Moshe Feiglin out of the Likud because of his 'dangerous' Temple Mount ascent”. The Arabs  surrounded Feiglin and the police stepped in ... and closed the Temple Mount to non-Muslims.

Oh, really? Throw Feiglin out … maybe he’s doing what every Jew should be doing davka right now?

"Jewish law states that areas of the Temple Mount which were part of the Holy Temple may not be entered by Jews today, because of issues of ritual purity." 

Maybe this is not entirely applicable these days? Why are they afraid of bringing the Geulah? Some say the Erev Zeir are among them … doing all they can to prevent the Geulah.  Read what is quoted about what the Gra wrote, in The Time of Our Simcha, about the Erev Rav and Erev Zeir.

“Feiglin sent a letter to the Attorney General asking him to make clear whether Israel has given up its sovereignty over the Temple Mount, and if so – when and in what circumstances did it do so.”

"OBAMA TO VISIT TEMPLE MOUNT? Hamas warns of ‘diplomatic catastrophe’"

"Hamas steps up threats on Obama’s Israel trip. Unconfirmed rumors claim president to visit Temple Mount."

True or Not True, Nevertheless,

Will they riot when and if OB ascends the Temple Mount? What will their reaction be? Will they ‘recognize’ that he is a Muslim, or treat him as a non-Muslim? This is an important sign.

"Many National Religious rabbis have published opinions regarding entry to certain parts of the Mount, saying that they were historically not part of the Temple compound, and that there is no reason to prevent Jews from ascending to those areas, especially in light of the fact that allowing Jews to ascend the Mount demonstrates Israeli sovereignty over the site."

"Hareidi rabbis have generally forbidden all ascents to the Mount, claiming that it is impossible to know which areas are halachically off-limits to Jews, and that the risk of entering these areas overwhelms any other issue, including showing Jewish sovereignty over the site."

How does a nation rebuild the Temple that is central to its life and purpose on this earth without stepping foot on those stones to begin rebuilding? Even if an earthquake shakes the foundation and reveals former walls, steps, and hidden passages, someone has to begin rebuilding. Perhaps the business of ‘impurity’ does not apply right now, because we are ALL in that situation and until the Temple is prepared for another inauguration, we can enter to prepare it for that special day? But not after that. Then it will be the Cohanim and Leviim who will take their rightful places.

And maybe Feiglin was pre-empting OB? Timing is crucial.

How does a nation rebuild the Temple...

There are many variables at play here which have not been resolved fully:

1) Will the Beit Hamikdash be built by Jews or by Hashem Himself?
2) What comes first: the Beit Hamikdash or Mashiah?
3) Is the halacha like the Ra'avad that there is no Issur Karet on Mekom Hamikdash? Most say no.
4) Does showing sovereignty over the site override the Issur Karet (as Moshe Feiglin said Rav Goren said)?
5) If not, does showing sovereignty over the site override Safek Issur Karet on the parts that are in doubt?
6) Is showing sovereignty over the site cosidered Hitgarut Ba'umot?
7) Is Hitgarut Ba'umot permissible today? (which is a halachic as well as a politically-charged question)


Sorry for breaking down your questions with even more questions, but these are at the crux of the issue.

Thanks, these things needed to be enumerated and need to be elucidated.
