  14. Adam Green says:

  15. unfortunatly this is what will happen to all the synagogue in Arabic countries.

  16. Islam according to Koran and the Muslims has to be the only religion in the world so they systematically destroy anything that is not Islam no mater who is running the country,Jewish,Christian,Buddhism and so on for them should not exist and any prove from the past will be destroyed so we can’t prove anything, we have to stop them as soon as possible, this primitive people who have no respect for history.

LET THEM TALK ISRAEL BELONG TO JEWISH PEOPLE, 2000 YRS ENOUGH FOR SUFFERING, IT'S TIME LIFT OUR HEAD AND HASHEM WILL HELP US. MOSHE DAYAN MADE GREAT MISTAKE 1967, THAT DOG HOUSE MUST BE DESTROYED AT THAT TIME. THAT CLOWN DIDN'T ALLOW TO BLOW IT UP. PLEASE DON'T TELL ME WE WEREN'T READY YET. WE NEED THAT TEMPLE MOUNT PERIOD, NO QUESTION ABOUT. JEWISH PEOPLE HAS TO BE OWNER IN THEY OWN COUNTRY, NOT FOREIGN PRESIDENTS.

  23. sounds prophetic….the city and sanctuary destoyed wonderfully? rite after the POPE entered the Holy land….42 mnths of war? the REAL original House of David!…how was it destroyed?

  24. Raul Neumann says:

    No matter who did this will be severely punished, if it was Assad I don't even want to imagine the horror he will go through anyway he's doomed to burn in hell for the eternity for his crimes, and so will happen to all those who march against Israel. In the past the romans destroyed the "Bet ha Mikdash" from which today only remains "one wall"; that enormous empire fell short after, lately the imbecile of Chavez cursed Israel, didn't even last two years after that, so now just wait and see…

  25. Judith Dowla says:

    Miki, perhaps to provoke Israel or to indicate we have fire power too and can remove your buildings whenever we want to and we run Syria now, not you. Could be that kind of thinking or like you said it could have been an outside mercenary that did it too. Whatever it is, the results are the same. It has been blown to smithereens. Destroying buildings will not affect Israel as they are used to that going on throughout their history. Better a building then human life. I like the way you examine things. Thank you for sharing.

  26. Judith Dowla says:

    Michael, are you speaking about the Second Jerusalem Temple that was destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD when they burned it down and killed many Jews as well as drove all the Jews out of Jerusalem and most of Palestine? Or are you speaking of another time?

  27. Judith Dowla says:

    Michael, the Key to the House of David is The Moshiach. He is the living Temple. Moshiach has been given the Keys to Heaven and Earth. Is that what you were asking? The physical tomb of David lies in Jerusalem and Pope Francis according to news reports was interested in managing it. Not sure what the managing consists of unless he meant sharing in the care of the tomb.

  28. Miki Bacsi says:

    Yes, Judith, it is a possibility that Iranian or HezbAllah troops blew up the synagogue, but I still think someone must have been shooting out of that building. Our beloved peace activists love to go inside mosques, too, and shoot at their enemies from there. Why would they respect the "dirty" Jews' buildings?

  29. Thomas Karl Hettinger says:

    shalom – salaam – salamaleikum – pax nobis- et vobiscum
    thanks – shookran – mercy – todaa – for invitation
    greetings from Germany.-

  30. Millie Kashuk says:

    SO HEART BREAKING…………MOMENTS IN THE HISTORY OF THE JEWS IN SYRIA GONE………….
