Encroaching desecration of the Jewish Holy Sites

Just a few weeks ago...
Ferrari display at Western Wall sparks outrage
Parking your car in the Western Wall plaza in Jerusalem is strictly prohibited.
Apparently though, there’s some leeway if you’re the top brass of a world-famous auto manufacturer.
That’s what visitors to the holy site discovered on Friday morning, when they were met with a display of 10 Ferrari sports cars smack dab in the middle of the holy site plaza.
One visitor told the Ynet website it was “disgusting” and “outrageous” for the holy site to be commercialized so.
Another told Channel 10 news, “It’s not clear why we need such an exhibit in Israel’s poorest city.”
The liberal religious group Ne’emanei Torah Va’Avodah said the Wall was no place for such a “commercial gimmick.”
Now this...
While making preparations for the visit, US diplomats inquired last week about holding a press conference for reporters accompanying Pence at either the Western Wall Plaza or Western Wall Tunnels, Channel 10 reported Monday.
Western Wall Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz rejected the request, however, arguing it would be inappropriate to hold a press conference at the religious site. According to the report, Rabinowitz said in private that his main concern was the threat of renewed violence due to the press conference likely conveying a political message, coming exactly two weeks after US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
The report said the US is now searching for an alternative site nearby in which to hold the press conference.
Pence is set to land in Israel on Wednesday and while here is scheduled to light a Hannukah menorah at the Western Wall, which stands adjacent to the Temple Mount, the holiest place in Judaism and site of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, Islam’s third holiest shrine.  (Source)
THANK GOD!!  IT'S A HANUKAH MIRACLE!!
Pence’s trip to Israel postponed to mid-January
US Vice President Mike Pence’s visit to Israel scheduled for this week has been delayed until an unknown date in mid-January, the White House announced Monday evening, as the Trump administration seeks to push through historic tax reform legislation.
The delay will allow Pence to remain in Washington in case he needs to break a tie vote in the Senate over President Donald Trump’s tax reforms.
The horror of this openly admitted idolater lighting a hanukiah in this holy place made me shudder. But, HKB"H has spared us this further degradation.

"...L'HODOT UL'HALLEL L'SHIMCHA HAGADOL!"

Kulanu MK Rachel Azaria denounced Rabinowitz’s rejection of Pence’s request, saying that the rabbi “has become confused and thinks that the Western Wall is his back yard.”

Said Azaria “It cannot be that that the rabbi takes these decisions alone, and certainly not on issues connected to the foreign policy of the State of Israel. “If the rabbi of the Western Wall does not understand this, we will work to clarify and limit his standing in law,” the MK continued, adding that she is currently advancing a law to regulate the administration of the site, concluding that “an international incident such as this underlines the urgency of the matter.”

Bayit Yehudi MK Betzalel Smotrich wrote on Twitter that if the report was correct he would call on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to intervene and allow the press conference to go ahead.

“With all due respect to the rabbi, and I have a lot of that, he is not supposed to make decisions on these kinds of issues, and of this magnitude.”

A tick darkness is gradually descending upon the earth. It's 1st of Tevet, there are less than 36 tzadikim left in the world to support humankind. Every remaining holy place has been touched by the darkness, and now the Kotel. Shekhinah is becoming stronger, the fire looming. "See the Lord is coming with fire... " Mashiach is the tzemach, coming out of the ground. The day when the burning commenced, 1 st of Tevet. שם

Like it is written, the evil in Israel will end by default and then all the evil existing in the world with the power and rocks of the star and g-d himself...
Ever since rab shteinman left us, the redemption process started and finally this horrid exile is now coming to the ultimate end with all of the wicked human beings and it is already happening now far more than soon so everybody must now be ready. of course it is still process, we still have few more trials to pass and it is not immediate process but everything is moving fast now
