1. Muslims: you have now ecxuse to stat new worldwide GIHAD
MA'HUL ,   PKI'IN   (10.20.05)
2. nice video showing nothing I haven't seen before.
Israeli ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (10.20.05)
nice interiors what about the exteriors? what about showing the work being carrined out in the garden near the girls school inside the Gate of Mercy (Golden Gate) on the Temple Mount side (east of the Dome of the Rock lower garden)? what about showing the work being done in the system of cisterns between the Dome of the Rock, the Moslem library and the Gate of the Chain (west of the Dome of the Rock)? why not explain that the part of the set of photographs taken inside the Dome of the Rock (lower level under the Foundation Stone) is actually a cave known as "Solomon's Cave" whose existence has been know for hundreds of years and which may in fact be part of the supporting structure for the water drainage system from the Jewish Temple. By the way this area is well preserved, is not new and according to the video you present has no evidence of recent changes (within the last five years) In other words being that I live here in Israel I don't see anything new to be excited about. Of course your readers in other parts of the world will probably get all excited and make all kinds of political statements. Nonetheless, thanks for sharing. Happy Holiday.
3. beautiful to see

Thank you ynet for letting us see this, and ive emailed everyone with your link so that they can watch it too. Great Job!
4. The Struggle In Israel...
Adina kutnicki ,   NJ, US   (10.20.05)
The single biggest mistake Israel made (credit this blunder to Moshe Dayan)was to give its holiest ! site to the Muslim Wafq. The enormity of this blunder is what fuels the jihad. The Arab Muslims truly believe that they will eternally have control of Judaism's holiest site. In addition, they hold in contempt (and I can't blame them for this) a people/country relinquishing its holiest site. Can you imagine the Muslims giving Mecca & Medina to the infidels? Unthinkable. They wage jihad over a reported (whether true or not) flushed Koran. If Israel doesn't take back the Temple Mount the Islamic jihad will for sure continue. The insane Israeli policy that Jews are a "provocation" at the Temple Mount is exactly what keeps their fantasies fueled. I suspect the secular left "elite" realize all of the above and therefore want the status quo. In other words, they would rather have Judaism's holiest site in Muslim hands, than to give the so called upper hand in Israeli politics/power to Jewish nationalists. This is the current struggle in Israel in a nutshell.
5. Send the Muslims back to Mecca!
Daisy ,   USA   (10.20.05)
6. Ms. Kutnicki is beginning to sound like Ms. Rivera
I am shocked and appalled! Ms. Kitnicki I expected something better of you. clearly you don't know Israel as well as you would have us believe you do. cause if you did you would know that the temple mount is as important to the left as it is to the right.
7. very nice video Ynet
8. To # 6-Prove To Me I Am Wrong In My Assessment
Adina kutnicki ,   NJ, US   (10.21.05)
To # 6 - When I talk about the left here I am talking about the extreme fringe. Would you have us believe that Beilin, Peres, Burg, etc, leftwing media pundits, Aharon Barak, and all the post zionists/revisionists want Israel to retain the Temple Mount? Show me where this is the case and I will eat my words. Please do so.
9. Temple Site
Me ,   NZ   (10.21.05)
May God answer the prayer of the Jews.
10. Video
D. Proctor ,   Dallas, TX US   (10.21.05)
As a Christian, I am intrigued and inspired by the Jewish roots of our beliefs. So much of what we know to be the truth of G-d is expressed in the beautiful traditions and worship experiences of the "people of the Book". I pray for the peace of Jerusalem, for the children of Abraham, and for the revelation of the Messiah, Yeshua.
11. Some in the world know the truth...
Joanne ,   Virginia, USA   (10.21.05)
Israeli says... "Of course your readers in other parts of the world will probably get all excited and make all kinds of political statements." There are those of us in the world who see right through the lies and tactics of those who would steal Judaism's holiest site. ------------------------------- May The Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you. May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace.
12. Excellent video!
yardena biber ,   kiryat ono, Israel   (10.21.05)
Thanks, to give the Jews a view of the holy site.
13. Grateful for the tour
Aces ,   Portland, USA   (10.21.05)
Thanks so much for showing a glimpse of what is the focal point of biblical prophesy. I am in awe.
14. Hey MA'HUL, PKI'IN
James ,   VA, USA   (10.21.05)
It’s a renovation. Shut up with Muslim jihad rhetoric. Idiot.
15. No Jews allowed
Israel Zwick ,   NYC   (10.21.05)
When I visited the Temple Mount after the Six-day war, Jews were allowed into the Dome of Rock and Al-Aksa Mosque. The Arabs welcomed the Jewsih tourists and the dollars that they brought. What changed? Why are Jews no longer permitted to visit?
16. to the Christians. thx for visiting.
No thanks we are Jews and we don't wish to believe in your religion. In the right time THE GOD OF ISRAEL will assist us and guide us and will reveal the proper way. With all due respect but for us Jews, your religion isn't the proper way for us. Y'all have a nice day.
17. Ms. Kutnicki #8
You show me exactly where it is written that what you say is true. You won't be able to do it because you are misquoting.
18. The archaeologist comments
Elder of Ziyon ,   Jersey City, NJ   (10.21.05)
YNet seems to have added a bit of bias to this article by quoting an archeologist who claims that the Waqf hasn't damaged Jewish antiquities. I'm sure that you are aware that this is hardly a universal opinion among Israeli archaeologists and there is strong evidence that the Waqf has in fact destroyed priceless Jewish treasures from the First Temple period. It makes one wonder why an otherwise good article had to veer towards a possibly false, and politically sensitive, premise.
19. They call it damage control
T. A. Adams ,   Oklahoma City, USA   (10.21.05)
According to this video they would have us all believe that all the artifacts we've seen photo after photo of that have been ripped from this most Holy site by these most unholy beings over the course of the past several years and thrown like so much “dirt” into the dumps is just a figment of our imaginations? Please don’t be fooled into believing this dear people; all that is being done at the Temple Mount is in preparation for the abomination of desolation.
20. Jews r allowed in small groups on the temple mount
after the riots in Sept 2000 which came as a result of Mr. Sharon's visit to the Temple Mount there was a period of time during which no non-moslems were allowed to visit. But that has changed in the past year.
22. Thank you--Toda Raba
Rose O DeRenzo ,   Moses Lake WA USA   (10.21.05)
Thank you Ron for the excellent video and allowing me to visit this site which is closed to the general public. I appreciate being able to see sites where I have been denied entrance.
23. Jesus (Y'shua) is a JEW
S.C. ,   Los Angeles USA   (10.21.05)
You said "No thanks we are Jews and we don't wish to believe in your religion. In the right time THE GOD OF ISRAEL will assist us and guide us and will reveal the proper way. With all due respect but for us Jews, your religion isn't the proper way for us. " Jesus (Y'shua) is a JEW, Christianity is a religion for every race, including the Jews. Christianity is based on "the Bible" which contains two parts. The first is the Torah (Tanakh) that Judaism accepts, the second part was written by Jews and is called the "New Testament." Christians worship the God of Israel, Who has shown them the right way. According to Jews I have spoken to, Jesus can show you how to become more Jewish if you follow him.
24. Arabs
Ira Quirke ,   Brisbane   (10.22.05)
What did 'the Arabs' ever do for the benefit of mankind as a whole? Invent nothing and cause plenty of strife in the name of a non god. Israel will have it all back soon!
25. Words cannot express.
Ira Quirke ,   Brisbane   (10.22.05)
Yes this is a blessing to be able to view this video......Oh the guilt! Oy vey, get me a lawyer!....
26. Yeshua is Meshiach Nagid
The Whyman   (10.22.05)
Messiah has come and has graciously allowed the gentiles into God's kingdom by His sacrifice which fulfilled the law of Moses. Yeshua fulfilled all the prophecies in the Tenach which all can read and compare for themselves: In time all will know and all Israel will be saved as in accordance to the scriptures. Beloved Jewish people, do not take the word of the liberal media as truth, the evangelical christians are one of the last and truest allies Israel has.
27. P.S.
The Whyman   (10.22.05)
Religion is of no worth to anyone and is not offered by any Christian. Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah came to bring us back into a *relationship* with God as Adam and Eve once had.
29. Jesus is a JEW
Donna ,   Houston, USA   (10.22.05)
Jesus, when he walked the earth as G-d's perfect sacrifical lamb, was a Torah observant Jew. He lived a sinless life to become the Lamb of G-d who died on the cross at the same time of day that the Jews slaughter their lambs for Passover. Coincidence? Nope!! The blood from these lambs were a representative of the Real Lamb that would take away the sins of the world so that we didn't have to be separated from the Father in eternity. The Jews have been confused by the two descriptions of Messiah. One, the Suffering Servant and the other, the Conquering Messiah. Jesus fulfilled the Torah and what the Prophets said about these seemingly two different people. They are really one in the same. The Suffering Messiah conquered Death and Hell so we could have fellowship with Adoni again. As Abraham said, "G-d will provide Himself a Lamb". The Conquering Messiah is Y'shua coming to take his rightful place, in Jerusalem, as Lord of Lords and King of Kings! I get excited just thinking about it! I pray to be alive to see it with my own eyes!
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (10.22.05)
The peace process of war and destruction. Gaza's Jews built everything on land that NEVER belonged to Arabs. In intense hate for G-D, Muslim mobs destroyed the synagogues where G-D was worshipped. Hamas flags flew from synagogue roofs as synagogues burned. A major victory for global jihad against the non-Muslim infidels. Joseph is the beloved Bible hero of Jews and Christians. Muslims murdered IDF soldiers at Joseph's Tomb. With venomous hate for Israel's G-D, Muslim mobs burned prayer books and destroyed the Tomb. Jewish worshippers and holy places are frequently attacked by Islamists. Jewish and Christian holy sites are desecrated and destroyed. In the Islamic invasion and filthy desecration of Jesus Christ' birthplace, Church of Nativity, BIBLES WERE TORN UP FOR TOILET PAPER. It was an act against G-D. Inscribed in those Bibles are the laws G-D gave to Moses. Some of the laws - Exodus 20: "You shall have no other gods before Me" "You shall not make for yourself an idol" "You shall not murder" "You shall not commit adultery" "You shall not steal" "You shall not bear false witness" "You shall not covet" Exodus 21:16 "He who kidnaps a man, whether he sells him or he is found in his possession, shall surely be put to death" Muslims have perpetrated massive desecration and destruction at Judaism's holiest site, the Temple Mount. JERUSALEM IS MENTIONED OVER 800 TIMES IN THE BIBLE, not once in the Koran. G-D designated the Temple Mount to the Jews for His worship and prayer only. Muslims repeatedly engage in massive rock throwing at the Jews on the Temple Mount, turning the holiest place on earth into a common place of violence. THE OFFENSE TO G-D IS ENORMOUS. Stop the hate for Judaism and Christianity! Stop Jews and Christians from being arrested for praying on the Temple Mount. RETURN CONTROL OF THE TEMPLE MOUNT TO ITS JEWISH OWNERS IMMEDIATELY.
