High Holy Days? Yeah, that, too, but it's also become the time for the yearly onslaught of avodah zarah in Eretz Yisrael. Not that they don't find some reason to come at all other times of the year, too, but the "Fall Feasts" are especially dear to their hearts as this is the time they believe oto ha'ish is going to make a second appearance.
In the past, the International Christian Embassy (which is a made-up thing anyway) has brought upwards of 5000 avodah-zarah-worshippers to Holy Jerusalem. One day of the Sukkot holiday is dedicated to a parade which was initially an Israeli parade, but which was eventually taken over by them (as they tend to do with everything). Except for excursions here and there, they spent most of their time at the Binyanei Ha'uma Convention Center. However, this year, the new Jerusalem Arena (thanks to Hellenist-Mayor Nir Barkat) will be the center of their activities. And something else new has been added - something new and much more troubling.
This year, they are adding an avodah-zarah prayer gathering at the southern wall of the Temple Mount (where Glen Beck held his Jerusalem extravaganza) on the morning of HOSHANAH RABAH!
See Wednesday, October 15th on their schedule here.
And as if that were not bad enough, another high priest of avodah zarah is planning to lead a group on a tour to the "Upper Room" and take in Kever David while they're at it, as well as the Churva Synagogue and then wind up their visit at the Western Wall where they also will engage in their avodah zarah on YOM KIPPUR!
If you give them an inch, they will steal a mile! There is no room in our Holy Land for any Avodah Zarah!!
