Arab Media Reports: Jews Planing to Build Third Beis HaMikdash IY”H

Jerusalem - Arab Media Reports: Jews Planing to Build Third Beis HaMikdash IY”H

Jerusalem - A conference of ultra-orthodox Hasidic Jews in West Jerusalem has called for the destruction of Al-Aqsa Mosque and the building of the “third temple” on its ruins.

In response, the Aqsa Foundation for Endowment and Heritage warned of an escalation of the attempts by the Israeli occupation authorities and “its arms” - conferences such as this - to promote construction of the “third temple” at the expense of Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock.

In a press release, the Foundation said that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is behind these calls. The Jewish groups pushing for the temple have urged Netanyahu to fulfil his promise that in the event of his re-election, he would approve and arrange for Jewish prayers to be held in Al-Aqsa.

Ultra-orthodox Hasidim have become more active in recent weeks, targeting Al-Aqsa Mosque, desecrating it and working towards its “Judaization”. Reports and pictures from the conference held on 30th December have been published on a number of right-wing and ultra-orthodox websites. The conference, it is claimed, was held especially to address the Temple issue. Its programme included demonstrations of the rituals to be observed in a new temple; the organisers presented the conference as if such rituals would be taking place in situ sooner rather than later. Right-wing Israeli groups have demanded that the Israeli Prime Minister makes the necessary arrangements with the police so that Jews can pray inside Al-Aqsa. Letters dating from 1995 and 2005 have been produced as evidence of Netanyahu’s promise to facilitate such prayers if he became Prime Minister for a second term; he was re-elected in 2009.

Successive Israeli governments have played down claims that Jews are planning to demolish Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock and replace the historic Islamic sites with a Jewish temple, despite the overwhelming evidence that many organisations within Israel and in the Jewish diaspora have that as their prime aim. Some ultra-orthodox Jews say that it is forbidden for Jews to pray anywhere with Al-Aqsa Sanctuary as they have no idea where the “Holy of Holies” lies; historically, only the High Priest of the temple was allowed to enter that inner sanctum.

Regarding building the Third Temple, Nathan*, Moishela** and Caroline (Talia)*** all said that the Beis HaMikdash will descend from heaven engulfed in fire.

Iggeres Teiman says that there will be a restoration of prophecy even before the actual manifestation of Mashiach (at the end of chapter 3 Cf. Likkutei Sichos, volume II: Balak, page 88f). Therefore, what Nathan, Moishela, Caroline are saying makes sense.

For more information on this topic, see ArtScroll Rosh Hashanah 30a, note 44, second paragraph, Rav Schwab on Prayer, page 489, Eichah 4:11 and Zecharyah 2:9.

Conclusion: There is no need to build the Third Temple. It's in heaven ready to descended. As soon as we stop being emotionally constipated (see Rav Schwab on Chumash by Rabbi Myer Schwab, pages 47 – 48), and scream out to Hashem to redeem us - those who are worthy - will merit seeing it! - read Anticipating the Redemption and Yearning for Moshiach (www.sefaria.org/sheets/70397)

The Novi says, “It will happen after this, that I will pour out My spirit upon all flesh... young men will see visions” (Yo’el 3:1). Rashi explains that “It will happen after this” is referring to the future (i.e. end of days) [http://bit.ly/2uOl2sa] Regarding “upon all flesh,” Rashi says to see chapter 36 in Yechezkeil.


The Gemara tells us that the power of prophecy was given to deranged people..." (see Bava Basra 12b). Rebbe Shimon bar Yochai said, "...Before disaster and destruction happens to a nation, Heaven announces this throughout the whole world... and sometimes this is transmitted to fools who lack intelligence" (Zohar volume 2, page 6a 'רבי חייא אמר')

"he would approve and arrange for Jewish prayers to be held in Al-Aqsa".

Around 113 years ago, Rav Yisroel Meir (HaKohein) Kagan said, “Even after the Beis HaMikdosh was destroyed; the Mount upon which the Beis HaMikdosh stood still retains its special sanctity. Therefore today, while we are still in a state of ritual defilement, it is strictly forbidden for a Jew to enter the Temple Mount” (Mishnah Berurah 561:5 - http://bit.ly/2tTNepU).

Rav Avraham Yitzhak HaKohein Kook in the 1920s banned Jews from visiting the site out of a concern that they may inadvertently step into an area which in Jewish law is forbidden to enter unless a specific ritual purification ceremony is performed (http://bit.ly/1CBNuMn). In the June 1967 Six Day War, 50 rabbonim signed a p’sak prohibiting one from visiting Har HaBayis (http://bit.ly/1DmTtDs).

If anyone can, please find me an authentic Torah scholar who permits going onto the Temple Mount.
