The Antiquities Authority announced today that it has found the quarry that supplied the giant stones for the building of the Temple Mount. The quarry is located in what is now one of Jerusalem's newest neighborhoods, Ramat Shlomo (also known as Reches Shuafat), between Ramot and French Hill. The quarry was found in the course of an archaeological rescue dig prior to the construction of a neighborhood school.
The ancient quarry is spread out over at least five dunams (1.25 acres), with rocks between three and eight meters long - the size of those that can still be seen today at the foundations of the Temple Mount and in the Western Wall - hewn out of the ground. Click here for photos of the quarry on the Israel Matzav blog.
From his blog:
"It's not as if the world created a whole new country because of holocaust guilt and gives it a free pass no matter what it does."
What a witty sarcasm. Almost as deep and thoughtful as Dilbert discussing his company's policy on outsourcing and protracted health care.
I would say I'd be happy to burn my Dilbert books, but I don't own any. I like funny humor.
Give Scott a piece of your mind HERE
First of all, this blog is not a place for you to post your idol worship.
That being said...
Jesus could not be the son of G-d and the Messiah. The Messiah is a descendant of King David through the father. If Jesus was the Messiah then his father would have to have been a descendant of David (thus a man).
If he was the son of G-d, which is not only blasphemous but impossible, then he was not the Messiah.
For you see dear Celal, I am a Jew. My G-d forbids me to worship anything other than G-d. We tried worshiping a gold cow and we got into trouble for it.
I see no need to worship one of my cousins.
The Creator of the universe, maker of all mankind, need not knock up a Jewish chick to create a half-man half-god being who supposedly died for your sins.
But he didn't really die, did he? Oh wait, he had to have died. For your sins. But G-d can't die. So he couldn't have died. But he did. For your sins.
I'll take Torah and my religion which predates yours by two thousand years, thank you. My G-d is not a liar. He doesn't invalidate his Torah and Covenant for a quasi-Greek/Roman polytheism.
Plus, my dear Celal, Inquisitions, torture, murder, blood libals, kidnapping, Crusades and closed eyes during the Holocaust are not the best ways to convince someone of Christian love.
Reflect and return to the One True G-d, Hashem Yisborach: Oseh Shamayim V'Ha-aretz.

Right click. Save image as. Paste in blog with link if you so desire.
The time is coming when we are going to have to make a stand for our Holy Temple Mount and Land.
Not so sure?
Help us spread the word.
I have decided to try Blogrush to increase traffic and get the word out about the Temple Mount desecration. I have chosen "politics" as my blog subject instead of "religion" because there were Yushke posts up the wazoo coming up.
No thank you.
That being said, I cannot vouch for the links to other blogs that pop up. Some (many I am sure) are shtus. Surf and click at your own risk.
Thanks and Gamar Tov.

Hamas on Tuesday banned open-air prayers organised by the rival Fatah faction in the Gaza Strip, gatherings that have turned into weekly protests against the territory's Islamist rulers. Backed by a ruling by the pro-Hamas Palestine Clerics Federation, Hamas's Gaza-based government said it had "decided to prevent any gatherings under the pretext of Friday (Muslim) prayers". Over the past several weeks, Friday prayers organised by Fatah, headed by Western-backed President Mahmoud Abbas, have led to clashes with Hamas security forces.In a statement, the Hamas administration said Fatah had used outdoor worship on the Muslim rest day to sow "chaos and sedition" in the Gaza Strip. The clerics federation, in a religious edict, said the violence at the gatherings violated the sanctity of Friday worship. Fatah officials said the faction planned to go ahead with open-air prayers this Friday despite the ban. "No one has the right to intervene in people's worship," said Hazen Abu Shanab, a Fatah official in Gaza. Hamas took control of the Gaza Strip in fighting against Fatah in June. The Islamist group is shunned by the West for refusing to recognise Israel, renounce violence and accept existing interim Israeli-Palestinian peace deals.
Hypocrisy. Revisionism. Lies.
Imagine if Israel had tried to ban Friday prayers.

(IsraelNN.com) A large trench being dug on the Temple Mount is destroying a never before uncovered section of the outer wall of the Second Temple. The construction is being supervised by the Wakf—the Muslim Authority acting as custodians to the Temple Mount.
Archeologists have been calling for construction to halt on the trench, which is approximately 1,300 feet long and five feet deep. The Wakf claims the trench is being dug to replace 40-year-old electrical cables for nearby mosques.
New photos of construction debris from the Temple Mount show carved stones casually dumped in a pile that appear to be a section of the outer wall of the Second Temple, according to archaeologist Eilat Mazar.
According to Rabbi Chaim Richman, International Director of the Temple Institute, the Wakf is intentionally digging in areas where "undoubtedly the Temple once stood." "For the first time since the Temple's destruction, a section of the Temple Wall itself has been exposed," Richman said. "And the Wakf under the guise of laying down electrical pipes has dug a trench, destroying the most important holy artifact ever found to date."
Richman contends that the Temple remains are being "purposely destroyed with no supervision," calling the government's tolerance of the construction "complicit cooperation."
According to a report by WorldNetDaily, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert personally gave permission for bulldozers, steam shovels and other heavy equipment to be used to dig the trench.
"This is an extraordinarily serious offense," Richman states. "A corrupt, spiritually bankrupt government is allowing Judaism's holiest site to be trashed because of political agreements to officially hand over the Temple Mount to the Palestinian Authority. Jews in Israel and abroad are asleep, and have not awakened to the importance of the Temple in Judaism or the desecration of this holy site being performed daily by the Wakf."
The Israel Antiquities Authority approved the construction despite archaeologists’ concern that precious artifacts are being destroyed. The Authority, which digs for religious artifacts across the State of Israel, has not inspected construction on Judaism's holiest site even once since the work began, despite continuous calls for the construction to be supervised and halted.
English spokesman for the Israeli Police, Mickey Rosenfeld asserts that the police stationed on the Temple Mount will not prevent the construction because the Antiquities Authority approved the dig.
The Wakf has denied that any Jewish artifacts have been discovered during the dig, but new photos of work on the Mount belie the claim, clearly showing what is likely to be an ancient piece of carved wall.
The wall in question is from the outer wall of the Temple itself, as opposed to the Western Wall, which is a remnant of the retaining wall around the larger Temple platform.
Mazar, a member of the faculty at Hebrew University and a member of the Public Committee for Prevention of the Destruction of Antiquities on the Temple Mount, says it is "crucial this wall is inspected." She explains that the current ground level of the Temple Mount is slightly above the original Temple Mount platform, “meaning anything found is likely from the Temple itself.”
Mazar insists that she must personally inspect the stones to confirm their status, and attempted to inspect the site last week. She was stopped by Israeli police who are protecting the construction.
"The only hope is for Jews and non-Jews from across the world to stand up and start putting pressure on the religious, political and archeological communities to immediately halt this process," Richman concludes. "The whole world is wondering what the Jews are doing, allowing their most precious site, the Holy of Holies to be destroyed right before their eyes."
I don't know what is more disgraceful: the chutzpah and hypocrisy of the Muslims or the complacency of the Jewish World. THE BEIS HAMIKDASH is being destroyed yet again IN OUR TIMES and no one is standing up! Imagine the outcry from the Islamic world if one of their precious shrines was even touched by a non-Muslim! Would you stand by if a family member was chas v'shalom being attacked? The Temple Mount is ours and ours alone. It is our heritage and our property, yet we sit by and shake out heads as it is being torn apart by our enemies.
You must speak out. You must write, email, call the knesset. You must take action! Do not sit in your comfy air conditioned shul on Rosh Hashana and call Hashem Melech as you did nothing while his palace is being torn to shreds.
Muslims caught red-handed destroying Temple artifacts
Archaeologists kept out as WND obtains photo of pulverized antiquities at Judaism's holiest site

JERUSALEM – Islamic authorities using heavy machinery to dig on the Temple Mount – Judaism's holiest site – have been caught red-handed destroying Temple-era antiquities and what's believed to be a section of an outer wall of the Second Jewish Temple.
WND today obtained a photograph of a massive trench the Waqf, the Muslim custodians of the Temple Mount, have been blasting around the periphery of the holy site purportedly to replace 40-year-old electrical cables for mosques on the Mount. The Waqf has steadfastly denied they found or destroyed any Jewish antiquities during their dig.
In view in the picture, which was obtained in conjunction with Israel's Temple Institute, are concrete slabs broken by Waqf bulldozers and what appears to be a chopped up carved stone from Jewish Temple-era antiquity.

"Jerry" of Harrison, TN has this to say on the Arutz Sheva website comments section:
Where is your back bone, where is your honor to God?Are we not ashamed at our inaction?Where is the backbone of the Israeli Government and her poeple? Why do you allow the temple mount to be destroyed and why do you give up and divide the land God has given you as a posession forever? In giving up land and making concessions to Muslims, you are dishonoring God and I am ashamed of your government for doing so. If your government is gifted with just half a brain, you will not give up any land but stand and fight. You are going to have to stand up the the Muslims so why not do it on your terms instead of on theirs. Millions of Americans are behind you and would come fight with you against them if you make a stand. We don't have to get permission from our government to come fight. We are decendants of Israel and don't like what is happening to God's people including ourselves. Lets make a stand! Trust God and claim the land God has given. God Bless. Jerry
