QUESTION: Marty; Does Socrates present something with regard to the established order of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem? I not too long ago visited the positioning and I used to be shocked to listen to that the temple plateau that when held two historic is only a tad over 37 acres.  That’s one among your key numbers within the Financial Confidence Mannequin 8.615 x 4.307 =  37.1 which is an odd coincidence. However then taking three hundred and sixty five days × 24 hours = 3600 hours and that quantities to nearly Pi 31536000 seconds in a yr.

Do you’ve gotten something on Israel long-term?



ANSWER: What I can say from private expertise, is that I traveled throughout Israel. I even climbed Masada as they did in historic instances moderately than take to carry up. I climbed Masada which sits on the Lifeless Sea. I had hair then. By the point I reached the highest, I had seemed like Moses. The wind carries the salt off the seas and my hair was pure white however in an Afro wind-blown mixture of Moses met Einstein. Most likely the most effective film of all time was the Mini-Collection – Masada of 1981.

What I’ll say after touring all of Israel, I discovered that completely each web site that was holy to the Jews and Christians aside from Calvary appears to have been the identical web site that the Muslims additionally claimed was holy to them for various causes. The Mount of Olives in Jerusalem marks at its foot the place of Jesus’ arrest, within the Backyard of Gethsemane. On the highest of Mount of Olives, is the place custom locations the Risen Christ ascended into heaven. Custom says he left a footprint on the rock.

Earlier than Christianity was legalized in 313 AD by Constantine the Nice,  whose mom Helena was an avid Christian who scoured the Holy Land to mark each place associated to Jesus, Jerusalem’s Christians used a cave close to the summit of the Mount of Olives for gatherings and Mass. That cave was remembered reported as the place Jesus taught the disciples the Lord’s Prayer, and it’s nonetheless revered as such within the Paternoster monastery advanced. I simply discovered it curious how virtually each spot was claimed by all three religions

The Temple Mount is what the Jews seek advice from it and the Muslims name it the Dome of the Rock. It accommodates an enormous rock that the Jewish custom says is that that is the place Abraham was instructed to sacrifice his son. To the Muslims, the rock is the spot from which the Prophet Muhammad was taken up into heaven for an encounter with God (an occasion often called the Miʿrāj). Thus, it’s the identical rock and this symbolizes the conflict between the 2 religions. No less than Jesus didn’t do something there for in his time, the Jewish Temple stood there till  70AD.

The Hebrew tribes settled in Canaan round c. 1200 BC. Add Pi, 3145 years, and also you come to 1945. Israel’s declaration of independence came about on Might 14th, 1948 (1948.367). The US, the Soviet Union, and plenty of different governments rapidly acknowledged it. Then got here 1967 in June when Israel was as soon as once more thus into warfare for the third time – but it surely was the shortest.

Israel succeeded in opposition to all odds and prevailed over the armies of three of its neighbors. In Might 1967, Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser introduced that the Straits of Tiran would once more be closed to Israeli vessels. He additionally ordered the mobilization of the Egyptian navy alongside the border with Israel. Nevertheless, he additional ordered the fast withdrawal of all UNEF personnel a transparent signal that warfare was about to begin.

On June fifth, 1967, because the UNEF was within the strategy of leaving the zone, Israel launched a collection of pre-emptive airstrikes in opposition to Egyptian airfields and different amenities. It successfully destroyed the whole Egyptian airpower. By June tenth (1967.441), the Six-Day Struggle was over. Israel’s capital metropolis, Jerusalem, was reunited. For the primary time in 19 years, the Previous Metropolis was open to believers of all faiths and Jews may entry their holiest websites. I used to be lucky to have visited in all places within the lat Nineteen Seventies.

Tensions are as soon as once more rising since Israel allowed Jews to pray on the Temple Mount.  The Jews have been praying on the base of the Temple Mount the place the outdated Temple Wall nonetheless remained. Jordan was the custodian of the Dome of the Rock and is now demanding that the federal government stop Jewish prayer on the mount which started about 5 years in the past. The Israeli authorities avoids addressing these silent prayers formally. They’re going down on the jap aspect of the Dome of the Rock/Temple Mount, albeit with out conventional Jewish prayer objects comparable to tallit, tefillin, or siddur.

In the meantime, Israel is in a constitutional disaster the place there’s an try to cut back the energy of the judiciary. Permitting the prayer on the Dome of the Rock/Temple Mount is an encroachment that can finally result in a serious confrontation. Our laptop is projecting rising confrontation and seeking to 2024 and past.
