In Israel, religious Jews are now in a period known as "Counting the Omer". During this time there are various observances, including visiting the Kotel (Wailing Wall) each day, while some like to view Judaism's Holiest site, the Temple Mount.
Yesterday, a small group of Haredi fathers and children went up to the Temple Mount to see Judaism's holiest site. What happened next was frightening.
A baying mob of muslims began spitting, screaming alla-hu-akbar, and throwing obstacles at the children. You can see the terror and confusion of these young ones. Yes, the police came to escort them to safety and hold back the mob, but these children will be forever traumatized.
Did you hear of this on the news? Have any politicians (Israel or anywhere else) spoken against this? The silence is deafening. Even sadder is the fact that this happens again and again as a show of power and an attempt to remove Jews from the Land of Israel.
Jews have nothing but awe and respect for their holiest sites.The only thing they want, is the right to send their prayers to God. When Jews ascend to the mount it is with utmost preparation and respect for the holy ground.
When Muslims pray daily on the mount, they pray to their holiest site, Mecca. That means that their backsides face their "al aqsa" mosque. It is used as a playground for picnics and soccer. It is used as a rallying point for riots, but nobody is banning them for showing disrespect.
Lately the riots have increased in their manic ferocity. Unless something is done, it will not be long before a real disaster takes place. There is no respect for life in the minds of these people~hatred over rides all!
The world is changing and it is not towards good. Right is wrong and bad is good, morals don't exist
Take time to read history (preferably from a book), and you will see the startling similarities as people turn against Israel.
The hatred that is now being spewed has become dangerous and frightening. When people see nothing wrong with children being attacked we must examine our moral compass.
The trend towards "political correctness" and turning a blind eye to evil for the sake of "multiculturalism" is destroying freedom world wide. Once again, the majority, the decent people, either "join in" or convince themselves that "nothing is happening here~move along". Dear friends, something "is" happening and Good People must not stand by again while evil is allowed to prosper.
As we enter into another Sabbath weekend, Please keep Israel in your prayers...
Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee...Psalm 122:6 (KJV)
שַׁאֲלוּ, שְׁלוֹם יְרוּשָׁלִָם; יִשְׁלָיוּ, אֹהֲבָיִךְ
They Only Wanted to Look Upon Judaism's Holiest Site
