It is unclear from these photographs just what the Moslem Wakf may be building on the Temple Mount, but it is abundantly clear just what they are destroying. Among the large timbers seen stacked up and being used for firewood are timbers that have been carbon-dated as three thousand years old. These massive wooden beams are the cedars of Lebanon described in the Book of Kings, which were specially ordered by King Solomon for the construction of the Holy Temple. Today, these ancient witnesses to the Divine service of the first Holy Temple, are being used for firewood.
Where is the moral outrage? Where is the sensitivity and respect for the religious beliefs of others? Where is the academic concern for the preservation of ancient history? Where is the respect for one of the great achievements of mankind?
