How Will the Mosque be Removed?

Rebuilding_Temple

Jeremy Gimpel jokingly mentioned in a video, one method in which the Mosque on the Temple Mount might be removed.

He said explosives.

The question is, even in jest, was Jeremy right?

With all due respect to this future MK, the answer is no, Jeremy was not right.

There are traditionally two interpretations as to how the Temple will be rebuilt.

The first is the one that, for instance, Neturei Karta firmly believes.

For them, the Temple will suddenly come down from heaven only after the Mashiach arrives (and the land is cleared of the Tsiyoinim), and human beings will have no apparent physical role in the matter.

Following the logic of that theory, the Neturei Karta apparently believe that the mosque will be squashed underneath the suddenly dropping Temple.

I wonder if they’ve bothered to mention that to their terrorist friends over tea.

But the more traditional belief is that we Jews will rebuild the Temple ourselves – and that is actually a far, far greater miracle.

So as I asked in the beginning, “What about the Mosque, which is rather inconveniently sitting where the Temple should be, how will it be removed?”

The simplistic answer is that it will be destroyed.

Jeremy (jokingly) said explosives, while others say wrecking balls and bulldozers.

But both answers are wrong.

According to common Jewish thought, the Arabs, at the time of the Mashiach will remain in Israel – but they will fully repent.

You see, when the miracle happens that we Jews will be united in our vision that it’s time to rebuild the Temple, the Arabs will be there too, and they will lovingly dismantle the Mosque stone by stone on their own volition, and rebuild it elsewhere.

That is the second part of the miracle of the rebuilding of the Temple.

In the end, the Arabs will want peace, will recognize the spiritual value of the Temple, will recognize what they have to gain by being allies of the Jews instead of enemies, and they will then take the peaceful steps needed to properly honor and worship God.

May the Temple be speedily built in in our lifetime. Amen.

  1. G-d helps those that help themselves.

  2. Liad Bar-el says:

    While we are on pipe dreams, Joe, there could also be a Temple gold dome melt down after a nuclear attack wherewith all walls of hate there would be turned into dust. The Temple Mount would open up, the gold of the dome would flow onto the path way leading to the then exposed room housing the Arron Kodesh. I mean, should one really think that the Cohenim who will be carrying out the Arron Kodesh would be doing it with dirty dusty feet? :-)

  3. David Shalome says:

    The Mosque will remove itself, the Waqf will keep digging and Al Ikhza will collapse into a hole in the ground!

  5. The Mosque will go up for sale, after a SUICIDE BOMBER blows half of it away, too much cost to rebuild therefore SALE. Then TEMPLE rebuilt in Peace.

  6. EARTH QUAKE Trembles the Mosque Down, then up for sale. Islam has always been for sale. Example Saudi Arabia Bahrain Qatar Kuwait Algeria Egypt all were bought WHY not this Mosque too.

  7. I really hope this article is meant to be a joke.

  8. Garden State says:

    I really believe that this is the most realistic scenario. Arabs have been busy digging on the Temple Mount for years, trying to wipe out all evidence of Jewish presence there. Concerns of structural integrity of the Dome of Rock have also been around for years. Temple mount walls are bulging all over the place and can't be patched fast enough. All one needs to do to see it is Google "temple mount wall bulge"

  9. The Jews hate everything to do with the Muslims, and Jesus, and the Christians and GOD. So you go on hating. God led the people astray for forty years. He is leading you astray for as many years as possible until Jesus returns to kick your ass for hating, betraying, ignoring his words and sending him to be nailed. He will nail each and every one of you.

  10. How about flying one of those planes into it as was done by those who flew into the World Trade Center, only do it remotely and perhaps with a drone. That would be a form of compensation would it not?

  11. David Shalome says:

    It is interesting that Arabs come to a Jewish page to instigate and incite, one would think they have enough pages of their own to go to, but then again they have 57 States of their own and are trying to take over little Israel as well as Europe. They do not know what Thou shalt not COVET means.

  12. This is a great article. I also believe this is the most compatible view with ethics and common sense.

    It would be a phenomenal miracle.

  13. No it wouldn't. The alleged hijackers were saudi not palestinian. Even if they were it still wouldn't mean anything. It's like assuming every israeli is responsible for the treasonous acts of Jonathon Pollard. It's a narrow minded and asinine way of thinking.

  14. I am a Muslim. I am not offended by this article. Because I know the G-d of the Jews, the Muslims, and more importantly Prophet Solomon (Peace be upon him) will protect/destroy whatever he wants. All I want is peace. What is sad is that my Jewish counterparts are empowering the terrorists. While I fight the terrorist ideology day and night, and one of the only Muslims on Earth who recognizes the Jewish right to govern themselves as they governed themselves in Madeenah, my Jewish counterparts are fueling the fire.

    Imagine if a so-called Muslim with a terrorist mentality reads this. He stomp his oppressive foot over my neck, and screech, "I told you so".

    Oh Children of Israel, stop inciting the enemies of Islaam, the enemies of God, the enemies of the US, the enemies of the Salaf as-Saliheen, the enemies of Israel, the enemies of Ali (RA), the enemies of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

    Al-Qaeda is our mutual enemy. Scratch that, Al-Qaeda is MY enemy as a NON-ARAB Muslim American. But something tells me the author of this article actually likes Al-Qaeda. Maybe because Al-Qaeda give the beautiful religion of Islaam a bad name? Can you say "hypocritical"?

    BTW, everything the Arabs have done to the Israelis, the Israelis have done to the Arabs. The non-Arab Muslims might be able to see Israelis/Jews as humans, but most Arabs are just as close-minded to loving Jews as Jews are close-minded when it comes to loving Arabs.

  15. *I am (not "and") [Line 5]
    He *will stomp [Paragraph 2, Line 1]
    Al-Qaeda *gives [Paragraph 4, Line 3]

    Looking back at what I wrote, DAMN! Anyone who argues with that would have to be an Osama-Bin-Laden worshipper :P
