Temple Mount

Google describes this place as – Hilltop site also called the Noble Sanctuary containing Islamic, Christian & Jewish structures.

I don’t see any Jewish or Christian structures up there, but maybe I am missing them.

I think we have gotten to the heart of it. Look at this piece of real estate. Amazing. It is the highest spot in the holy city of Jersalem. This is where the king lived. This is where the temple stood. A wide, flat plateau with a spectacular view of the surrounding area.

The Arabs have control of this spot, mostly. Jews have some jurisdiction, but not really…

I tell you, I really think that the history of this place, Israel, is both the draw and the thing that is holding it back.

This is underneath all problems. It is truly at the heart of it. It is the most core metaphysics that there is. This spot has been overrun and destroyed by it a number of times. Written history, proof. It is what their (Jews) story is about. Left Hand vs Right Hand, I don’t need food from you.

So, I think even though it is strange; that a Moslem Mosque sits at the top of the holiest of places. It may be okay. It may keep everything in check. They can all keep an eye on each other, these holy people. Please rat each other out if anybody’s getting funny.

On another note, the Sifting Project

This to me is modern day Jews. (I just found this! Did not know about it. So sorry Jewish people.)

Our project began in 1999 when the Northern Branch of the Islamic Movement conducted illegal renovations on the Temple Mount and disposed of over 9,000 tons of dirt mixed with invaluable archaeological artifacts.

Digging in front of Solomon’s Stables (nov. 1999)

Caring about every little piece they can scrounge of their history while others destroy it. Stop the madness!

This idea is movingly expressed in the Book of Psalms:

Thou wilt arise, and have compassion upon Zion; for it is time to be gracious unto her, for the appointed time is come: For your servants have cherished her stones, and have redeemed her dust (Psalms 102: 14-15).
