Goshen-Gottstein said, “The only reason they do something like this is because they do not have genuine faith or love for their neighbours and others as God requires. Others design specific foreign policy objective pledging to eradicate them from the face of the Earth to ensure they dominate and control it.

WHY DID GOD CHOOSE JERUSALEM?
Out of the whole wide world God Chose Jerusalem Templewill raise up another Cyrus in righteousness to make all his ways straight. He will rebuild God’s city and set exiles free not for a price or reward, says the LORD Almighty in the Bible in Isaiah 45:13. God’s Superior Real Estate Prowess Architectural Success means God decides a King Cyrus as done 1,500 years ago, to get back into the hottest business in the world of Third Temple building. So the idea a Temple possibly be rebuilt on the Temple Mount causes enemies of God to riot and loot, bomb cars, buildings, stab and shoot innocent civilians. The Dome of the Rock atop the Temple Mount in Jerusalem is where the people pray at the Western Wailing Wall. Cautious of all building in the contested territories of Judea-Samaria, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, wants God Resettlement to happen on earth. In preparation many would like God to move into Jerusalem. God made a public statement in the Bible on rebuilding the Temple Mount. Unofficial Sanhedrin council sent is asking for help in building the Temple. Though they want to do so worldwide pressure, violence, opposer’s actions makes plan seem impossible. Yet, it must happen someday. God and man toward are prepared for Grand Temple.
Foundation Stone, or Rock (Sakhrah), which is the rock beneath Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem. The greatest tragedy of Israel’s history was loss of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. When the Second Temple was destroyed in AD 70, the focal point of Israel’s spiritual life disappeared along with it. In its place, the Dome of the Rock was erected between 689 and 691, after Muslims captured Jerusalem from the Christian Byzantines in the 7th century. It was deliberately built on place where First and Second Temples once stood to protect the sacred rock of God’s Holy Place. Some Muslim leaders and professors around the world insist the Holy Temples never existed, so dismiss the proven historical and archaeological excavations conducted by Jewish and non-Jewish archaeologists that there are no archeological findings connected to the Jews. The excavations conducted at the bottom of Temple Mount all yield the proof of Jews’ claim Holy Mount Temple belongs to Jehovag Nissi. The spot of the Kidron valley in 1990s excavated the Solomon’s Stables an archaeological historical site. Temple Mount Sifting Project with thousands of volunteers are recovering Temple period artifacts from debris as shown here in picture.
The First Temple was built by Solomon at Temple Mount. Though the tabernacle and altars dedicated to God preexist later temples built. God told David, “When your days are over and you rest with your ancestors, I will raise up your offspring to succeed you, your own flesh and blood, and establish his kingdom. He is the one who will build a house for my Name, and I will establish throne of his kingdom forever in Bible in 2 Samuel 7:12–13. David, a shepherd boy fought Goliath and became King, desired to build a permanent dwelling place for God. But because he was a man of war and had too much blood on his hands the task of building First Temple was given to his son Shlomo Solomon, whose name in Hebrew means peace. So first Temple built by King Solomon around 1000 BC, was destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 BC on Tisha B’av (the ninth day of the Hebrew month of Av), and the Jews were exiled in Babylon.
The Muslim goal was central government first at Damascus then at Baghdad, Cairo, Istanbul, or other imperial centers. The local governors, judges, and other rulers were appointed by the central imperial authorities for far off colonies. Islamic law was introduced as law, whether or not wanted by the local people. Arabic was introduced as rulers’ language, and local language frequently disappeared as slaves sold abroad. Then two classes of residents established, native residents paid a tax colonialist rulers did not have to pay. The law differed in places but the following is example of colonialist laws colonized Christians and Jews subjected to over the years:
- Christians and Jews could not bear arms, Muslims could;
- Christians and Jews could not ride horses, Muslims could;
- Christians and Jews had to get permission to build Muslims did not
- Christians and Jews paid certain taxes which Muslims did not;
- Christians could not proselytize Muslims could;
- Christians and Jews bow to Muslim masters when they paid their taxes
- Christians and Jews lived under the law set forth in Koran, not either their own religious or secular law.
These laws allowed the local conquered people less freedom than allowed the conquering colonialist rulers. Non-Arab Muslim inhabitants of conquered lands became second class citizens behind the ruling Arabs. This classic colonialism of Cecil Rhodes was practiced globally by a group of people who settle in a distant territory in another state jurisdiction for control over who remain under political jurisdiction of their native land. “Bloody” conquest by guns were no match for the spears resistance of natives. So Christian west and Jews fight against Muslim east, almost 1,500 years of Muslim imperialist, colonialist, conquest and subjugation of others through invasion and war to the east of Arabia in Iraq, Persia, further eastward, which continues to this day.
The closest geographically, Palestine was the first Western non-Arab area invaded in Muslim imperialist, colonialist, bloody conquest and subjugation of others. At the time, Palestine was under rule of the Eastern Roman Empire, ruled from Istanbul by Greeks, Eastern Orthodox Catholic. The Eastern Orthodox rule was despotic and Eastern Roman Empire was in serious decline. The Eastern Orthodox rulers were despots, and in Palestine had subjugated the large population of local Jews and Monophysite Christians. The Orthodox were imperialist, majored in religious persecution. Muslim imperialist colonialist, bloody conquest subjugation of Palestine and Egypt took place. These conquest of Palestine Israel by Muslim imperialist, colonialist bloody conquest began with a battle, the August 20, 636, battle of Yarmk with 75,000 soldiers. At first local Jews welcomed the Muslims as liberators. The Muslims had subjugated remainder of Palestine but had not been able to capture Jerusalem. Beginning in July 637, the Muslims began a siege of Jerusalem which lasted for five months before Jerusalem fell in February 638. Arabs did not sack the city, and the Arab soldiers were apparently kept in tight control by their leaders. No destruction was permitted as a triumph of ‘civilized’ control.” This conquest is very significant hallmark of Muslim colonialism began to make Christian and Jewish people to pay a tribute to colonialist Muslims. Baghdad used imperialist, colonialist, bloody wars of conquest throughout life of its empire to provide Caliphate with steady stream of slaves, made eunuchs.The Muslim conquest of Christian North Africa continued against native Berbers encountered west of Egypt. The North African people fought so strongly against Muslim imperialist, colonialist, bloody conquest in the west was brought to an almost complete stop between Tripoli and Carthage for more than a quarter century. The Muslims broke through in a series of battles followed by revenge massacres of Christian opponents. This Muslim imperialist, colonialist, bloody conquest continued from North Africa to Spain, Portugal, southern France, until stopped at the battle of Poiters in middle of France. The Muslims in the imperialist colonialist, bloody conquests, killed two to three times as many Christians as the Christians killed Muslims in all Crusades combined. Jerusalem’s central location appeals most to the Muslims. So after the Saladin conquered Jerusalem, victorious Saladin forbade acts of vengeance. There were no more deaths, no violence. The “Saladin’s generosity to Jews or Christian does not mention 450 years prior Muslim aggressive approach. The Crusaders and Christian or Western aggression against Islam ignores prior history of the Muslim colonialist occupation of Jerusalem. This history of Muslims, headquartered in Arabia, captured Jerusalem for 100 years chiefly under the Umayyads, Jerusalem prospered under Muslim rule. Succeeding Abbasids, rule of Jerusalem began to decline beginning 725 A.D. The decline of central Muslim government breaking away from Arabia provinces, growth of warlike revolutionary groups, growth of extremist Muslim sects and the decision Muslims to convert Christians and Jews and pagans to Islam is colonial nature of Jerusalem. Abbasids drained wealth from Jerusalem to Baghdad for the benefit of the caliphs, and Jerusalem declined economically. The language of the government became Arabic, forcible conversion to Islam became the Muslim policy. In 750, the Caliph destroyed the walls of Jerusalem, leaving it defenseless they were later rebuilt, in time to defend against the Crusaders. The history of the following 300 hundred years is complex and tangled. Jerusalem Christians and Jewish majority suffered greatly during alternating periods of peace and war. So these happenings were repeated Muslim destruction of the countryside of Israel in 970-983, and 1024-1077 in Jerusalem. The wholesale destruction by the Muslims of Christian churches by direct order of the Caliph, in 1003 and by Muslim mobs; the total destruction of Jerusalem by Caliph of Cairo in early 1020s; building small mosques on top of Christian churches; enforcing the Muslim laws limiting the height of Christian churches; attacking, robbing Christian pilgrims from Europe; attacking Christian processions in streets of Jerusalem; etc. After nearly 100 years of Muslim rule, the caliphs begun to add religious importance to conquests setting conversion to Islam important priority. It was latter caliphs without the first-hand remembrance of Mohammed distanced empire led to independent rulers being established in Spain, North Africa, Cairo, Asia Minor, etc.; and the instability of the caliphates and resulting civil wars.
The conversion to Islam after 100 years of Muslim conquest imperial colonialism had little significancs to force conversion so an aggressive approach was adopted. Jerusalem, was a particular problem as the Jews and Christians churches were significantly wealthier than the Muslims. This was in beginning of early 800s with Charlemaigne, Europe prototype foreign aid program helped churches located at Holy places in Jerusalem. Embarrassed Muslims, saw the Christian churches and monasteries outshone Muslim’s. Many churches and monasteries were run by western religious orders, report directly to Rome by western leaders appointed by Rome subject to Constantinople. Literally thousands of European Christian pilgrim made pilgrimage to Jerusalem from such places as Germany, France, and Hungary in the years 1000, 1033, 1064, and 1099). Muslim and European rulers frequently sought to enter into treaties of support with each other. As a result, Christian churches became target of Muslims by enemies against European ties in a civil war. The Christian churches were rebuilt when pro-western rulers came to power.
Muslim continue what begun 1400 years culminating in Crusades clashes between Islam and Western Christendom. These history of Islam in Jerusalem, Spain and Portugal, France in the battle of Portiers, are part of endtime living history. These conflicts continue to Armageddon battle Jerusalem. Muslim history in widespread belief of Islam east and west Christianity begun before, today’s Muslim description of current West Bank conflicts. Israel is Chosen by Yahweh allowing the Muslim control for a season to teach Jews and Christians lesson for rebellious reasons. Now God’s timetable agenda punishment season is satisfied so change is coming to Jerusalem. Behold God is doing a new thing; now it springs forth do you not know? God makes a way in wilderness and rivers in desert, Isaiah 43:19. So bringing whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not open the floodgates of heaven to pour out so much blessing there will not be room enough to store it according to Malachi 3:10.
