When you attend a major league baseball game or a concert in a civic arena; when you go to Disneyland or go to the airport to fly to Disneyland, you pass through a metal detector.

No big deal, right? Thanks to Muslim terrorists, it’s pretty much a fact of life now.

But not if you’re a Muslim who might want to smuggle weapons onto the most disputed few acres of ground in the world. Then it’s a travesty of human rights that must be fought with violence, the burning of cars, and attacks on the police charged with protecting the public safety.

If the authorities dare challenge your right to enter this compound without inspection (even though Christians, Jews, and all others must do it), then it justifies a “Day of Rage” against them.

Sounds absurd, doesn’t it?

But it’s par for the course with the Palestinian Authority, who apparently want Muslims to be able to enter the Temple Mount in Jerusalem with weapons other than rocks.

After four Palestinian men smuggled weapons onto Temple Mount and used them to kill two Israeli policemen, Israel installed metal detectors at the entrances to the complex. Then they required everyone — Muslims included — to pass through the detectors before entering the compound.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas called for a “Day of Rage” in protest. He got it.

Palestinians rioted and attacked Israeli police and IDF soldiers.

The P.A., the Fatah Party, Hamas, and other Palestinian leaders deceptively told their people that the metal detectors were forcing the Temple Mount to be “shut down” or closed. Many believed them.

In fact, one young Palestinian man was so outraged at the supposed ‘closure’ of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, he scaled the fence surrounding the Jewish village of Halamish. He entered the private residence of a Jewish family of ten who were just completing their Shabbat dinner. He attacked and stabbed four adults, killing three.

Fortunately, an IDF soldier on leave in the neighboring house, heard the screams and rushed to the rescue. He shot through the window and wounded the attacker.

Before he committed the murders, the young Palestinian man posted a message on his Facebook page. He was outraged at the “closure” of the Temple Mount and called on other Muslims to get their guns and fight the Israelis. He believed Abbas’ lie and three Jews — a grandfather and his adult son and daughter — died. The grandmother lies in critical condition.

Yet Mahmoud Abbas had the gall to call the White House and ask the United States to intervene in a “dangerous” situation that he deliberately created!

After the United Nations, King Abdullah of Jordan, and many others called on Israel to maintain the “status quo” on the Temple Mount, the Israeli Security Cabinet relented and ordered the removal of the metal detectors.

They announced that “smart inspection” of entrants to the compound would be conducted through “advanced technological means,” such as cameras and facial recognition scans. It will cost Israel millions of shekels, but the Cabinet felt it necessary.

Of course, Mahmoud Abbas is already protesting the “smart inspections” and I’m confident rioting and mayhem will return.

With every episode such as this, Israelis grow ever more tired of the constant trouble that accompanies Muslim control of Temple Mount. That’s why so many world figures are suddenly calling for Israel to maintain the “status quo.” They know that, at some point, the Israelis might finally say, “Enough is enough,” and take back control of the compound.

It seems impossible, but it’s not such a farfetched idea. In fact, Bible prophecy predicts it.

Daniel 9 tells of a time in the future when the Antichrist will make a covenant with Israel. That covenant will initiate the last seven years before Jesus Christ returns to the earth in the Second Coming.

It says that in the middle of that seven years, Antichrist will “put a stop to sacrifice and grain offerings” in the Temple. (Daniel 9:27)

Now, Antichrist can only stop the sacrifice and grain offerings if they are already taking place. And they can only take place in the Temple — on Temple Mount. And they haven’t happened there since the Romans destroyed the Temple in 70 A.D.

That means that sometime between now and the middle of the Tribulation, a third Temple must be built. On Temple Mount.

As unlikely as it seemed just a few years ago, there is now a vibrant and growing movement in Israel to build a third Temple on Temple Mount. Which will surely mean war. Just as the Bible predicts.

As usual, not only is Israel fighting enemies within, they are fighting enemies without. Once again, the United Nations, through its agency UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization), is attacking the Jewish state by attacking its heritage.

Earlier this month, UNESCO voted to declare the ancient Jewish city of Hebron a Palestinian world heritage site. They say it is “endangered.”

Hebron is the site of the “Tomb of the Patriarchs.” The Jewish Patriarchs, not the Palestinian Patriarchs. How can the Palestinians — who have never existed as a people group (both their name and history are fabricated) — have patriarchs?

To call Hebron “endangered” is scandalous and insulting. Unlike so many of the world’s historic treasures under Muslim control, Hebron is fully protected by the government of Israel. It’s not endangered. Just the opposite.

Yet once again, UNESCO (and much of western Europe) disregards the facts of history and continues its crusade to commit one of the most diabolical robberies in history. That is, the theft of Israel’s 3,000-year-old heritage.

They embrace a version of Muslim history in the land that is not even possible. Islam was founded by a man in the 7th century. UNESCO buys into the Islamic version of events even though the events in question happened thousands of years before Islam even existed!

Also this week, I want to share with you one of the most amazing aspects of the Gospel story: the story of God’s righteousness and how it can become your righteousness, too.

To fully realize what this means is one of the most humbling things that can ever happen to us. It is truly amazing. And it is a free gift given by a loving God.
