Arabs, Israelis prepare
Temple Mount showdown
Jewish, Muslim groups plan major protests at same time on explosive holy site next week
….Sheikh Raed Salah, head of the Islamic Movement, a Palestinian Temple Mount activist group, called on Arabs Friday to “defend the Al-Aqsa Mosque” Aug. 14, the day Jews commemorate the destruction of the First and Second Temples with a 25-hour fast.
If you read my Tisha B’Av post you would understand some of the meaning this holds spiritually and emotionally.
Kesher Talk has called for a blogburst for those interested:
“Tisha B’Av, Saturday evening August 13th and Sunday August 14th.
The theme will be the relation of Tisha B’Av to the destruction of Temple Mount archeological relics under the authorization of the Muslim authority in charge of the Mount, and the relationship of those topics to the ongoing propaganda attempts to erase Jewish history.”
I think I will call for a prayerburst from Christians who care for Israel. No alerting me is necessary:) Anyone who additionally would like to join in Keshers blogburst, there are details on the blog. a bit of fasting would probably be appropriate if you are inclined that way.
