It’s really not a question of if, but when will the Third Temple be built?
“It’s time to vote with our feet and send a clear message to the world that we truly believe that the Temple Mount is ours and we truly hope and pray for a time of unparalleled world peace and harmony with the re-building of the Third Temple,” stated Rabbi Chaim Richman, international director of the Temple Institute,. “This new video is an emotional and visual tool to awaken world Jewry this Tisha B’Av and have them internalize the message that the dream of 2000 years is finally within our reach.”
It has been confirmed that Zehut (Identity) party leader Moshe Feiglin will order his party, Zehut, to step down in the current election to join Netanyahu’s Likud party who will make him a “high ranking official” in the PM’s next government.
Moshe Feiglin’s Zehut was the only party head in the current elections who openly calls for building the third Temple and has placed it on his party’s platform. The catch was that Feiglin’s Zehut party had to drop out of the race.
In light of their favorable performance in the polls, Itamar Ben-Gvir, the head of the Otzma Yehudit party now says that he will demand the role of Justice Minister as a condition to entering into a coalition reports Ynet. This means that if Netanyahu wants to secure a right-wing coalition, as he says he does, he will likely have to comply with Ben-Gvir’s demand. The Justice Minister oversees all aspects of Israel’s Justice System.
Ben-Gvir and his party have come out openly in favor of building the Third Temple and are expected to pass the minimum threshold of four seats in Tuesday’s election.
Speculation also surrounds the possibility of President Donald Trump playing a role in the rebuilding of the Temple since he was instrumental in declaring Jerusalem as the recognized, undivided capital of Israel. Both the Sanhedrin and Prime Minister Netanyahu have compared the U.S. president to Cyrus, the Persian King who said,
“The Lord, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth and he has appointed me to build a temple for him at Jerusalem in Judah. Any of his people among you may go up to Jerusalem in Judah and build the temple of the Lord, the God of Israel, the God who is in Jerusalem, and may their God be with them. And in any locality where survivors may now be living, the people are to provide them with silver and gold, with goods and livestock, and with freewill offerings for the temple of God in Jerusalem.”
