Woeful Neglect of Temple Mount by Jewish Leaders

Excerpts from

Jerusalem: Demographics and Division

by Ezra HaLevi

"Jerusalem should not be up for negotiation," Chief Sephardi Rabbi Shlomo Amar declared, joining a similar statement a day earlier made by his Ashkenazi counterpart Rabbi Yonah Metzger. "The Temple Mount is the heart and soul of the Land of Israel and there is no Jewish unity without the unity of the Land of Israel."

Jerusalem Without the Holy Temple is Not Jerusalem
Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, the founder of the Temple Institute in Jerusalem spoke about his experience being part of Motta Gur’s Paratrooper unit that liberated the Temple Mount. "Once we liberated the area, I saw the Prime Minister, the president and all sorts of dignitaries entering the Temple Mount. But where did they head? To the Kotel [the Western Wall of the Temple Mount –ed.]. We arrive at the Temple Mount after 2,000 years – and where did we go? And the Torah world was fully complicit in this – it was not just Moshe Dayan and the government. Humiliation. Complete humiliation.

"There is no Jerusalem without the Holy Temple," he proclaimed. "I have been sitting here for two hours and heave heard about housing and demographics and even the Jewish Quarter – but nothing about the Holy Temple, which is inextricably the whole essence of Jerusalem. It is impossible to speak about Jerusalem without mentioning even once the Holy Temple.

"Every generation at least implemented to the best of their ability what they prayed for. Our generation simply runs away from it. We talk about the Temple Mount, but not building the Holy Temple."

(emphasis mine)


Humiliation: secular Jewish leaders stop at a wall rather than continue to go up to the Temple Mount.
Complete humiliation: religious Jewish leaders follow their secular leaders and fail to lead them past the wall to go up to the Temple Mount. Shame. Shame.

When will the political and religious leaders repent of their woeful neglect of the Temple Mount? Is it any wonder Israel is falling to pieces? Will it take German-EU occupation to rub their faces into the dirt to appreciate the Holy Land?

Psalm 102:13-15

13 You will arise and have mercy on Zion;
For the time to favor her,
Yes, the set time, has come.
14 For Your servants take pleasure in her stones,
And show favor to her dust.
15 So the nations shall fear the name of the LORD,
And all the kings of the earth Your glory.
