Taking the Temperature of the Temple Mount

5 Tevet 5774

If you want to assess the progress of the redemption, take the temperature of the Temple Mount.

Tension at Temple Mount is escalating week by week

... radical Muslim groups use the site to regularly incite against Israel, and skilled provocateurs from the other side use it as a political podium.

And there are plenty of both — extreme right-wing Israelis who try to light a Hanukkah menorah in the Al-Aqsa Mosque or establish a synagogue at the site, and Islamic activists, Israeli Arabs and Palestinians who fight to “save Al-Aqsa” from the Jews. They often seem to sustain one another in what appear to be efforts to trigger a holy war.

Interesting that Jewish prayer and candle lighting is considered incitement to violence. If the Arabs don't like it, we must be doing something right.
