Chana Ya'ari - Arutz Sheva
Knesset Member Professor Aryeh Eldad is proposing that Israel “cut up and move” the Al Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount "when the third Temple will be built."
The MK, referred to the time of the Messiah, when the Third Holy Temple, or the Beit HaMikdash HaShlishi, as it is called in Hebrew, will be built, noting it would seem that the two structures could not exist in the same space, on the same site, at the same time.
During a march around the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem on the night of Tisha B'Av conducted by the Women in Green movement,
Eldad stood near the Lions' Gate and exhorted participants to “remember the destruction of the First and Second Temples.... the uprooting of [Jewish towns in] Gush Katif and northern Samaria.
"Even today there are attempts to destroy [Jewish] communities,” Eldad said. “This circling won't take us farther, but rather will bring us closer, closer to a solution to the heart of the problem regarding the sovereignty over the State of Israel, sovereignty over the Temple Mount.
"We should not avoid it with any sort of judicial excuse, nor postpone it with a deal on building 100 homes instead of 10,” he added, making reference to the recent negotiations over the destruction of a neighborhood in the town of Beit El.
"We must discuss the core issues – not just talk, but rather, also act."
Eldad said much could be learned from the “problematic deal” signed recently regarding Givat Ha'Ulpana in Beit El. “It is that they decided there not to demolish the homes, but rather, to cut them in pieces,” he noted.
Part of the proposal advanced by the government in order to vacate land that Palestinian Authority Arabs claimed was privately owned was that the houses -- which would not be destroyed -- would be sawed into parts and then would be reassembled elsewhere, on another section of land owned by the military in the area of Beit El.
"Let us learn that even more so, this applies when the time comes to build the Holy Temple, and that will be soon. We will then cut up the structure which is there now,” he proposed.
“We will cut it up, and they can take it wherever they want – because that is where the Third Holy Temple should and will stand – speedily in our days!”
