1. Barbarians trash Solomons stables. Why the inaction?
PETER SM ,   AUSTRALIA   (02.25.12)
2. Temple Mount
Jeffrey Grill, M.D. ,   Phoenix, USA   (02.25.12)
Israel can than the feckless Moshe Dayan for the insane, assinine decision to hand the Temple Mount over the Waqf following its liberation in the Six Day War. The Israeli government needs to have the temerity to exercise complete control and sovereignty over the Temple Mount - let the Muslim world (Umma) scream, carry on, threaten and rant.
3. Of course you can come see!
David ,   USA/Israel   (02.25.12)
You are invited to visit the mosque and see for yourself well preserved Roman, Byzantine and Crusader artifacts, among other items." Obviously they failed to mention anything Jewish. They will certainly say there was nothing Jewish there. JUST A PACK OF LIES! Whoever is responsible for this destruction should be locked up for the rest of their lives. They are trying to destroy the heritage of Isra'el.
4. look at the last sentence
5. Shame on Israel
ber ,   yahud   (02.25.12)
If Jews had even moved something with a toothpick all the Muslims in the world would be in an uproar. But we know from history that muslims systematically appropriate religious sites of other religions and then eradicate any Islamic evidence. That mountain of cut stone underneath the dome of the rock was built by Jews and WE NEVER GAVE IT TO ANYONE. It's ours and should they remove a PEBBLE FROM IT the whole country should violently riot, as they would us. He who wants it most gets it last, and lately the Jews have just been sucking.
6. non-starter except 4 foreign TBers watchem go!
7. Shas, Deguel HaTorah and Bayit Hayehudi
Abraham Nachmias ,   Petach Tikva IL   (02.25.12)
I can undestand why people like Barak and Dayan at his time don't care about the Temple Mount (they are atheists) but why doesn't Shas, Deguel HaTorah and HaBayit HaYehudi stay in the coalition in this situation? They are the people to blame! They talk but do nothing to defend our holiest!!!

9. THE Coming Temple ...
Craig Crawford ,   Laguna Niguel, CA   (02.25.12)
In Bible prophecy we are told there will be TWO new Temples built on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem ... the first new Temple will be built around the time of the Antichrist (a counterfeit-Messiah ... Revelation 11:2 ... 2 Thessalonians 2:4) and the final Temple (Ezekiel 40-48) when Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) returns ... In the book of Revelation a new Temple which will be built around the time of the coming Antichrist is mentioned ... "But leave out the court which is outside the Temple, (interesting ... this is the area which is now controlled by the Islamics) and do not measure it, for it has been given to the Gentiles (non-Jews). And they will tread the Holy city (Jerusalem) underfoot for forty-two months." (3 1/2 years ... the last half of the Great Tribulation ... the "Apocalypse.") (Revelation 11:2) Grace and Shalom,
10. Netanyahu is a coward!
Z.Z.Coltrane ,   USA   (02.25.12)
I can't believe Israeli officials allow these animals' to do this to Israeli religious and cultural history. The fear of world opinion and political correctness are destroying the Israeli, Zionist Soul! Praying God stops this travesty; the only way is for Israel to re-take the TM and expel all Muslims from Israeli lands. Israel needs another King David and a Maccabee-like revolt; Israel needs men of God to fight for Him. God bless, Israel; preaying for the peace of Jerusalem! Christian Zionist
11. If we forget thee O Jerusalem...
Roland Seener ,   London England   (02.25.12)
Are we relying on the third temple to come down from Heaven?If so we have a long wait !In order for this not to be so,we must be united.A one people of a dedicated spiritual nation.Otherwise this,our most Holy Site will become just a token of the past.
12. the arabs
cristian ,   argentina   (02.25.12)
the arab world stretches along almost 7,850 miles away from lagouira in western sahara until the easternmost tip of oman,near the southern city,covers the north africa and the part of asia south west called middle,its total surface is of the magnitude of the entire spanish speaking western hemisphere countries 12,9 million km,larger than europe 10,4 million km,canada 10 million km,china 9,6 million km,united states 9,6 million or brazil 8,7 million km,the arab speakers added about 422.000.000 people then what do you propose? must we kill and annihilate all arabs just because are arabs? are not the arabs human beings like the jews or the northamericans? and if we speak of invasion,why do the northamericans intervene in every country in the world?
13. where & why
observer ,   Egypt   (02.25.12)
Biblical scholars have often identified it with two biblical mountains of uncertain location: Mount Moriah where the binding of Isaac took place, and Mount Zion where the original Jebusite fortress stood, however both interpretations are disputed. But, does G-d needs man to build house for Him in order to inhabit (Shekinah) and have peace of mind (Sakinah in Arabic)? a man may swear by the temple and break his oath, but that whoso swears by the gold in the temple must remain bound. if a man swears by the altar, it is nothing; but that, if one swears by the gift that is upon the altar, then shall he be held as a debtor.
14. World Heritage Site
Ehai ,   London. UK.   (02.25.12)
The Temple Mount is officially recognized in international law as a world heritage site. Therefore it is a responsibility of UNESCO and the UN Security Council to issue instructions to the Waqf requiring them to accept professional archaeologists from the world community of professonals to be part of the supervisory management of the works. The disregard for the world's interest in the heritage on this site is extreme vandalism. Jews are outraged. Muslims should protest against it is a desecration of Muslim dignity.
15. Why? Because Netanyahu is a yellow coward!
Rachel ,   US   (02.25.12)
And with Barak at his side, Israel does not have a chance.
16. This IS Bullshyt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jew ,   Israel   (02.25.12)
17. Why did it take so long for Yediot to come out with this?
Tzila ,   Modiin, Israel   (02.25.12)
This deliberate destruction by the moslem. Wakf has been going on for years. And it took until now for Yediot to report on this? For shame on the editors. What exactly are they trying to do by exposing this tragedy now?
18. the superior race
cristian ,   argentina   (02.25.12)
the northamerican-jews racist complain about the arabs living in israel meanwhile in the arabs countries are living 339.510.535 arabs inhabitants mean israel 1,414,000 arabs inhabitants and the arabs are jewish neighbors,why do not you see how many foreigns are living in each and every country all around the world? and more in the neighbors countries or why do not you see how many jews are living in exile everywhere? is there anyone who expulses them?, this is racism
19. end of israel could be faster by hands of jews
shiroz   (02.25.12)
20. Destroying Jewish Heritage
David ,   Jerusalem   (02.25.12)
It is time to wake up to all the destruction being done to the Jewish heritage. How many of us are in favor of giving away Hebron and all the other places where our ancesters are buried. The gov't has no problems with building over cemetaries. It is time to go back to our roots on all fronts and show we care about ourselves. Instead of trying to destroy our own Torah we should work to preserve it. Only then can we expect others to respect our property and heritage
21. Secularist Failures
Jake in Jerusalem ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (02.25.12)
Moshe Dayan, a militant secularist, happily took the West Bank and Gaza and Sinai from Arab control in 1967 but IMMEDIATELY relinquished control of the Temple Mount, so that Jewish pride would not progress more than Israeli pride. The Muslims, correctly understanding that a secular Israel with no past has no future, grabbed the Jewish Holy Temple Mount. The archeologists in this article are mostly secular, themselves, and include both Left- and Right-wingers. The abandonment of the Jewish Temple Mount by the State of Israel is horrifying to all decent people. Is Netanyahu afraid that the Moslem world won't like us anymore if we take what is rightfully ours? Will they like us less than they do now? Israel has nothing to fear! Take back the Temple Mount!!!
22. Bribes and Traitors
Joe Sombrero ,   USA   (02.25.12)
Someone is being paid off and that person is a traitor now find that person.
23. Old story
dave ,   safet israel - phila   (02.25.12)
24. Nr 9. You err !.
Arn. ,   Sweden.   (02.25.12)
2 Tessalonian 2:4 is an event in the local assembly of Christ and has nothing to do with Israel. The Temple here mentioned is - The BODY OF CHRIST - That is the Local Christian assembly as such. Ezekiel 40-48 comes after the Great anf Terrible Day of HASHEM - after the 3rd World War that is. Arn.Sweden.
25. make up ur minds! Did the Romans take artifacts wh/ended up:
at the Vatican or are the Moslems destroying them with impunity? Because it can't be both
26. Observer so much ignorance & spin in One posting
PETER SM ,   AUSTRALIA   (02.26.12)
Havent you got some Churches to burn down or Copts to kill,instead of the public display of ignorance of Jewish law & history?
27. Temple Mount
Peter in Beirut ,   Land of Tall Cedars   (02.26.12)
Let me say with all respect - you will be judged on how you deal with this issue [Temple Mount and its Judaic historical relics], and the issue of the full integration your brethren from Ethiopia [Falasha-Mura]. In some way, perhaps a discrete but still very critical way, they are as important as the Iranian issue.
28. Damn it...Israel...fight for what is yours!!!
Jack B. ,   USA   (02.26.12)
29. #25 what a moron
Gee ,   Zikron Yaakov   (02.26.12)
Yes asshole both are true.
30. Im eyn anu lanu az mi lanu?! BIG ISRAEL, Temple Mount empty!
