Arabs Burning First Temple Pillars
Israel National News ^ | 11/04/2012 | David Lev

Posted on 11/04/2012 10:57:46 PM PST by Dogbert41

A group of Jews that ascended the Temple Mount Sunday were shocked to see that ancient beams of wood that had apparently been used during the period of the Holy Temple were being used as firewood by Arabs on the Mount, and off it. Archaeologists have dated the wood as far back as the First Temple period, and appear to be among the celebrated “Cedars of Lebanon” mentioned in the Tanach.

On the page is a video that should burn our hearts to anger. These were gathered by King David himself for the building of the First Temple where God Himself dwelt. To me this is worth going to war NOW and raising that disgusting golden dome and removing all Arabs from Jerusalem forever!

I’d sure love to have a tiny chip of wood from those wooden pillars!

It makes me so sad and angry that someone would destroy an ancient artifact like this.

What a shame. Muslim Arabs should never have been allowed close to this site. They have no right to occupy it in spite of their fictional account of Mohammed’s spiritual visit there on his flying horse.

Fear not! His time approaches!

“Battle Hymn of the Republic” Mormon Tabernacle Choir

Battle Hymn of the Republic

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord:
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword:
His truth is marching on.

(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps,
They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps;
I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps:
His day is marching on.

(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
His day is marching on.

I have read a fiery gospel writ in burnished rows of steel:
“As ye deal with my contemners, so with you my grace shall deal;
Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with his heel,
Since God is marching on.”

(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Since God is marching on.

He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat;
He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment-seat:
Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! be jubilant, my feet!
Our God is marching on.

(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Our God is marching on.

In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me:
As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free,
While God is marching on.

(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
While God is marching on.

He is coming like the glory of the morning on the wave,
He is Wisdom to the mighty, He is Succour to the brave,
So the world shall be His footstool, and the soul of Time His slave,
Our God is marching on.

(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Our God is marching on.

No one did anything after they destroyed ancient tombs holy to Judaism a few years ago, so of course they would do this.

There are people in this country who support giving them half of Jerusalem.

It’s about time for the state of Israel to get rid of these enemies within their own borders. Then they should dismantle and destroy that gold flaked aberation that sits above the Jewish horizon. If they don’t get rid of islam it will kill them.....that is it’s goal!

They didn't build all of this without destroying much of their own history. If this is how they treat their 1st most holy site on Earth, imagine what they could do with their 3rd most holy site?

But if you look closely at the story, there is no first hand report of any beams being burnt - the picture is of a little fire - Arab-style, in a metal cylander. That would be a charcoal fire.

First, where do these beams come from? From the mosque structure itself. They were removed during renovations.

The beams had been used in the roof structure of the mosque, and already at that time they were said to be thousands of years old by archaeologists – preserved only because they had been used in the building.

But the mosque is not thousands of years old. Given that when the mosque was made, the Temple had been destroyed centuries previous, the Arabs would have been unable to use building materials from the vanished first Temple. All the structures on Temple Mount were destroyed after the reign of Roman Emperor Julian the Apostate, but their remains were there - remains of the Second Temple, the Churches and the Roman Temples which were on the site in the early Christian era.

Some of the beams were dated to the first Temple period

They cannot have been, because no archaeologist has ever claimed to have found a single artifact of that era. The search is still on.

others to Roman times, and at least one beam was found to have Byzantine-era designs etched on it.

These sound like beams from the early Christian era.

So - what is happening to them?

After the beams were removed from the mosque, they were stored in a museum on the Mount. However, in recent years the beams were moved to a corner of the Mount, open to the elements – and archaeologists fear that exposure to winter rain and summer sun will be their undoing. Some of the beams were taken out several years ago, and more have been spotted in recent months. Reports said that the Arabs, who have been trying for years to ger rid of the beams, have begun burning them.

Reports may say that, but it is not real evidence.

Now, many of the beams have been placed at what appears to be a dumping ground ... Jewish groups that visited the Mount saw the beams being moved, but reported that the Arabs forbade them to take photos of the activity.

This seems like vague hearsay. But if the historical beams (which no doubt have nothing to do with First Temple) have been removed to a dumping ground, then obviously, anyone can sneak in, and grab some of them. Or grab all of them.

Hard to tell from the reports and counter-reprts what is really going, on other than that Muslims are destroying things.

Again.

Muslims are pigs - all of them - no exception.

NOT ONCE in World History have they contributed ANYTHING to commerce except slave trading and property looting and nothing to the development of new ideas and inventions aside from they have stolen from other people.

In their warped sense of reality, ANYTHING aside from the Koran, Mohammad, and the Haddiths, has ANY importance.

This is similar to the burning of the Napoleonic library in Egypt and the blowing up of the giant Buddhas in Afghanistan.

If you want to see what the west will look like under Islam, take a look at Afghanistan and Yemen. The ONLY difference is we will be using spears and swords because Muslims can’t even manufacture their own ammunition or guns.

Maybe they are just burning the beams from their own eyes.

Motes don’t burn well.
