Remains of the Jewish second temple may have been found during work to lay pipes at the Al-Aqsa mosque compound in east Jerusalem, Israeli television reported Thursday.
Israeli television broadcast footage of a mechanical digger at the site which Israeli archaeologists visited on Thursday.
Gaby Barkai, an archaeologist from Bar Ilan University, urged the Israeli government to stop the pipework after the discovery of what he said is "a massive seven metre-long wall."
Television said the pipework carried out by the office of Muslim religious affairs, or Waqf, is about 1.5 metres deep and about 100 metres long.
The compound, which houses both Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock, is located in east Jerusalem, which Israel occupied in 1967 and then annexed. It is the third holiest site in Islam after Mecca and Medina.
For Jews it as known as the Temple Mount, which they revere as the site of the King Herod's second temple, which was destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD. It is the holiest site in Judaism.
All that remains today is the temple's Western Wall, or Wailing wall.
Tick...tick...tick....time is running out for mankind.
Hmmm. Which should take precedencethe holiest site in Judaism or a line carrying Moslem waste? This may be one for a Talmud scholar, but I think I have my answer.
Tear down the filthy mosques. The Star of David should always fly from the Temple Mount. The arabs have no right to say what goes on up there.
OH MY...he looks real! YIKES!
If someone else wrote that and believes it, they are entitled to their wrong opinion.
It’s in the Bible. Just open it.
“When Geminoid is touched, I have very similar feelings of being touched....”
So if you were to kick Geminoid in the ‘nads...
“Hmmm. Which should take precedencethe holiest site in Judaism or a line carrying Moslem waste? This may be one for a Talmud scholar, but I think I have my answer.”
Of course, any of the Moon worshippers would likely tell you that nothing that is “holy” to another religion has any meaning for them.
The fact is that they are desperate to obliterate any trace of Judaism’s presence in the Holy Land, and specifically in Jerusalem. They, themselves have no presence there as a cohesive group until circa 1900, after the Jews began to come into the virtually empty Turkish province and farm. They have no history, because they were never a people, they have no distinct culture (aside from the culture of violence and murder) and no language of their own. Arabs as a group NEVER had a capital of any nation of theirs in Jerusalem. The Koran NEVER mentions Jerusalem, and the Moslems never even entered Jerusalem until years after Moo Ham Head died - so how could the city or Temple Mount be their “3rd Holyist Site?” They are desperate to erase evidence of ancient Jewish settlement of the area to make their non-claim seem more valuable. IOW, they are thieves of the worst sort.
