The Temple Mount in the CrossHairs!

Israel’s National Security Minister, Itamar Ben Gvir, went up to the Temple Mount this Tuesday, January 3rd. This happens to be the fast of Tevet remembering the commencement of the siege of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, in 588 BCE.

Whether Itamar Ben Gvir intended it or not, his ascent to the Mount sent a signal to the Haters of Zion who thirst for its destruction that the time has come for Jews to reclaim all of Eretz Israel, including the Temple Mount and that there never was and never will be a fake Palestine, people or state on Jewish land.

The opportunity for this fiction to be removed from the false narrative that has plagued Arab and Israel relations for decades is on the table. Ben Gvir’s presence on the Temple Mount today is a declaration of sovereignty. It must not be lost sight of when the jibbering class mount their misinformation campaign against Jewish self-determination. In response, Jewish leadership must proclaim that the land is Jewish land, the Jewish state home of the Jewish people. And none of it is up for negotiation. Only this message will show the haters of Zion that we Jews are serious about keeping our land.

Yosef Yigal Drever and Sylvia Drever co-founded Achdut HaLev in 2006 to reach out to the Jewish community's around the world providing support in learning Torah and promoting the 'Return of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel.' Yosef Yigal made Aliya in 2014 while Sylvia his wife is an Israeli. In late 2014 Achdut HaLev concentrated all its resources towards Aliya and the rebuilding of Eretz Yisrael. Excluding none and embracing all. The commandment to settle the Land of Israel is equal in importance to all the Torah Commandments all together: (Sifri Deut 12:29)
