Skip to comments.All eyes might be on the Temple Mount after the UAE-Israel deal

When he dedicated the Temple he built on Mount Moriah, King Solomon prayed that Gods house would be a center of prayer for all the peoples of the world.
Now, in the wake of the recent Abraham Accords the normalization agreement entered into by Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain the possibility exists that Solomons aspiration could be recreated.
Part of the avowed rationale for the accords was to create enhanced access for all Muslims to worship at al-Aqsa Mosque. This was lofty, with humanitarian intent, and a realpolitik gesture designed to discredit both the reflex accusation that Jews were somehow attacking al-Aqsa and were Judaizing Jerusalem.
How might this Solomonic vision occur? Quite simply by having various Emirs and Imams from the Gulf countries come to the Temple Mount to pray. Well, a bit more than that.
It would be one thing, not terribly noteworthy, for these leaders to make a ceremonial appearance at al-Aqsa. That, of course, would be a validation and proof of the benefits accruing to Muslims for entering into the accords.

Stand back! It’s gonna blow!!
Was there last October and there was a very tense moment. Police and IDF surrounding a few Jewish people. Waited for it to be cleared before we could proceed on the tour.
gold dome is Temple of the Rock, what is the tower to the left of Dome, almost above the rabbi’s hat?
Duckduckgo didn’t provide
Sure seems like a seven year peace treaty is coming right up.
Minaret of another mosque IIRC. Could be wrong.
Hes talking about a prayer group.
I think we’re going to see some major prophetic movements soon. Time will tell.
Not unless Jews can also pray on top of Temple Mount. I know that many sages have said that since no one knows precisely the location of the Temple itself upon the Mount, that therefore no one knows the precise location of the Holy of Holies - and thus no Jew can go on the Temple Mount because they would risk stepping within the boundaries of the Holy of Holies, something that is forbidden to anyone except the High Priest - and that only on Yom Kippur.
But still, this has to be a two-sided agreement.
Too many people just dont understand that Jews cant pray or even silently move their lips on the Temple Mount, or else they are arrested.
Note that most religious authorities do allow Jews on areas that are definitely not on the original smaller Temple Mount (the extreme north, the extreme south and extreme east strips on the current Mount).
And note that traditional religious authorities prohibit all non-Jews on the original Temple Mount in accord with Numbers 3:10.
Praying for that mosque to go blooie.
