If you needed any more reason to support this great cause, just look at the barbaric (and I use the word advisedly) treatment by the Muslim officials on the Temple Mount of these ancient Temple timbers from Biblical days. In any civilized country these artifacts would be lovingly restored, studied, and preserved, but with the fury of the jihad facing them, Israel's dhimmified
leadership stands dumb and allows them to be gloatingly incinerated:

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?

Ancient Temple Timbers Piled Before Burning by the Wakf

Eddie Murphy might have called this: "Buying a ticket to hell."

KUDOS to Rabbi Chaim Richman and his comrades in this effort! And notice this is an INTERNATIONAL day of awareness--all people around the globe who truly believe in God should make it a point to observe this March 16 in the most emphatic, of course LEGAL way they can.

"So [Solomon] built the house, and finished it; and he covered the house with beams and planks of cedar. He built the stories against all the house, each five cubits high: and they rested on the house with timber of cedar." 1 Kings, 6:9, 10

Can the Israel authorities not go there - or SOMEONE and rescue this precious wood?

Surely if they are throwing it away, someone else can take it!

I am in UK, I will call embassy.

This is so vile!
