Enough Crying. Enough Mourning.
BUILD IT AND THEY WILL COME.
Reality will not let us go with tractors at this moment to prepare ground for the Third Temple. However, at the very least, we can all work on the spiritual level of building the Temple.
In the book of Joshuah, we read in the first chapter, that G-d is telling him & the Nation of Israel that He is giving us the land, and that we must now go in and TAKE it:
It is not enough that G-d give us something. G-d may give us the Land of israel, but we must then TAKE it. if we had chosed to stay on the other side of the Jordan river, we never would have taken possession of the Land, even though G-d GAVE it to us. It's not enough to GIVE something. We must then in turn, TAKE it. G-d could give us the possibility to marry and have children, He could give us the possibility to make aliyah and move to Israel, etc... but when G-d gives, we must TAKE. It's hard to describe in a blog, but if I say to you, "Here, try some of my wonderfully delicious home made cookies!" It is not enough for me to hold the plate in front of you. You must physically reach out and take one of the delicious cookies. I can stand all day long holding the plate out towards you, but if you do not TAKE it, you will never get to enjoy the cookies I am giving you. The same with the Land of Israel. The same with the Holy Temple.
In 1967, G-d had us liberate the Temple Mount. He GAVE us the opportunity then and there to posses the Temple Mount and build the Temple. We did not TAKE it. So what do we do now, that the reality could spark a major war, if the Israeli government all of a sudden decided to physically build the Third temple? Well, we can AT LEAST build it on a spiritual level. One of the first things we need to do is to DESIRE it. YEARN for it. WANT it. Enough mourning. Le'ts tip the scales with ACTION. With more good deeds, more kindness, more charity giving and personal character-trait work. Let's talk to G-d each and every day, and tell him how much we want it. Let us be little children again when it comes to the excitement of wanting something so bad, that you use every opportunity to get close to it. Let us repair this national tragedy the Jewish People (and the World!) have suffered and are sorely missing in our lives. Watch this video which has gone viral. And then, let's take some -at least- spiritual action - and help build it, spiritual stone, by spiritual stone - until the rest of the people actually come together and agree it is time to physically re-build it!
And an email I received which you might also like to be a part of:
As the 9th of Av quickly approaches, as the mourning over the loss of the Temple and the divine service intensifies over the next several days, many hearts are open to act. This is the time to begin breaking the silence that has clouded the ongoing systemic suppression of Jewish rights on the Temple Mount.
We would like to see the petition rise to a minimum of 10,000 signatures by Sunday the 10th of Av. This year the fast is pushed from the 9th to the 10th in honor of the Sabbath. Fasting is prohibited on the Sabbath with Yom Kippur being the exception.
PLEASE URGE EVERYONE TO SIGN AND FORWARD THE DECLARATION!
By using email, facebook, twitter, message boards, news sites and more - we together can break the silence!
The Declaration can be signed at:
Be sure to also join and to invite your friends to the facebook event (already 4,300+ invites and 200+ attending/signers)

Betsy, a listener wrote in a very interesting question to my weekly guest, former Islamic terrorist, Walid Shoebat, on “Everything You Wanted to Know About Arabs But Were Afraid to Ask”. Betsy asked,
"Hi, This is a two part question (because I'm not sure about the answer to the 1st part). One, where did the philistines come from? I thought they were not from Abraham. Two: if the Palestinians insist they are the philistines, doesn't that shoot a giant hole in their claim to the Land and their religion as well? "
It's Israel or Palestine, Can’t Have It Both Ways
By Walid Shoebat
Philistines are not descendants from Abraham by either familial or spiritual ties whatsoever. They are an Indo-European pagan people who appeared in the southern coastal area of Canaan over millennia B.C. who most likely came from Aegean lands. Palasheth, which is Philistia, the land of the biblical Philistines, are a non-Semitic people who lived in a small portion of land southwest on the coast land that included only Joppa, Ashdod, Ashkelon, and Gaza.
The mixed multitude who calls themselves Palestinians who claim to be descendants from Philistines also create a major problem, since they also claim to originate from Semitic Arabs and the Philistines were not Semites. They can’t have it both ways.

Philistines or Arabs? You can't have it both ways.
To also call today's Israel the land of the Philistines would require a recreation of the other seven nations that made up the land of Canaan. How does one relate today's supposedly Semitic Palestinians to the non-Semitic Hevites, Perazites, and Jebusites, especially since these were eradicated and whatever remained of them were so mingled with others that there is no trace of them? No one today can trace any culture, language, religion, family origin to any Canaanites from ‘Palestine’, and there is ample historical evidence showing the “true” origin of today's Palestinians as a mixed multitude that came as of recent origin.
The Arabists and Muslims were not the first to come up with such a ploy that is completely rejected by history. In 135 AD, Emperor Hadrian applied the term “Palestine” to the Land of Israel as a propaganda ploy to erase Israel, his enemy, and replace it with Israel's enemy instead: Philistine with a new Latin twist--Palestine.
But such support causes a major problem to the faith of anyone who supports such a claim be it Christian or Muslim. Hadrian replaced the shrines of the Jewish Temple and the Sepulcher in Jerusalem with temples to pagan deities. Hadrian was an enemy of the Bible, so the question should be, if we support Hadrian’s changing the name to Palestine, why then not support his other changes, and keep the names to the holy places giving these pagan names? Again, you can’t have it both ways.
The questioner is correct, that “if the Palestinians insist they are the philistines, this shoots a giant hole in their claim to the Land and their religion as well”, not only that today’s Palestinians cannot be Canaanites and Arabs at the same time, but that the theology of any who make such claims is dramatically flawed. Even the Christian educators in today's so-called Palestine are shamelessly plagued with this type of propaganda saying that since “Palestine” is mentioned in the Bible, that we need to accept the use of the name. Joel 3:4, and elsewhere in the Bible in fact cursed the Philistines. It was Israel, the first occupation of Canaan (the Promised Land) who introduced that G-d was One G-d: "Hear O Israel, the Lord thy G-d is One." This was a startling revelation in the midst of the nations who were worshipping innumerable gods, so holding onto the rejected heathen tribes prior to Israel’s existence should be no honor to Muslims and Christians that adhere to such twisted concepts. Yet they are honored and are so proud of it.
So why does the Palestinian Authority insist that they are of Canaanite and Jebusite origin? At the same time, they also insisted that they are Arabs? The answer is simple; to Islamists and Arabists by enlarge the issue is much more then the worship of the true One G-d, it is the destruction of the Jewish people, their inheritance and their history. Period.
Yet, this in essence positions these peoples biblically as enemies of G-d. TheTannakh in fact clearly states that the ones who want to wipe the name “Israel” out are enemies of G-d:
“… And those who hate you have lifted up their heads. They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, and consulted together against your sheltered ones. They have said ‘Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel be remembered no more.” (Psalm 83)
The ones that call for eradicating the name of Israel are but of one voice:
“For they have consulted together with one consent; they form a confederacy against You: the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, Moab and the Hagrites; Gebal, Ammon and Amalek, Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre ...”.
Even to claim the worship of a one god does not prove the worship of the One True G-d who established Israel historically, re-established it now, never to be uprooted (Amos 9:15), and forever. How could someone say that they worship the One True G-d, yet reject His declarations? It is impossible to erase the name Israel. To prove otherwise is to disprove the Bible. This is the jest of what is behind this whole movement in the first place which is the rejection of G-d’s declaration that established Israel from time immemorial. It is why so many are incensed about eradicating Israel. It is why they so much focus on Jerusalem, which in the end will become a burdensome stone that will destroy all its enemies.

The Isaiah Plan. This is the only formula that will bring peace.
(This is a re-post of a blog I wrote back in 2007 around the time of the Annapolis peace talks. However, I believe it is still pertinent today, and I talked about this on my most recent radio show.)
U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is coming to the region for yet ANOTHER stab at peace. -The establishment of a Palestinian State. It's not enough that there are at least 22 Arab states already in existence, and only 1 tiny, tiny Israel. They want to chop us up some more, slice us to bits like salami, and place a Moslem 'Palestinian Terror State' right in the belly of Israel.
This is where I live, this is where my house is, this is where my children were born and raised. This is where my ancestors lived. This is the region that G-d gave to the 12 tribes of Israel. They want to cut our heart out, wrest Jerusalem from us, and make it into a Palestinian state. Dig down in the earth here, you will find JEWISH, not Arab artifacts. This is where Jewish Kings ruled. There were never any 'Palestinian' kings, and a country of 'Palestine' never existed. Palestine was the Jewish Homeland. My father was a 'Palestinian'. Most Arabs came in to this 'Jewish' region looking for work as more and more Jews came home and joined their brothers who were here for centuries. These Arabs would be insulted if they were called, 'Palestinians' which meant JEW. They were either Egyptians, or southern Syrians.There was never even an Arab Palestinian currency in all these centuries. The REGION known as Palestine was part of the Ottoman Empire (1299 to 1922) and therefore used TURKISH currency. When the British came in after WWI, they made the Land of Israel the ‘British Mandate of Palestine’, and the Egyptian pound was used until 1927. Egyptians swarmed into Israel for jobs, as the Arabs living in Gaza do today, crossing into Israel where they earn higher wages.
Though my father is not in this photo, here is a picture of Palestinian Jewish Parachutists in World War II.
The British then made what is called, the Palestinian pound, which was of course equal in value to the British pound sterling.
Palestine Pound Wikipedia - Bank of Israel
British Palestinian Pound with English, HEBREW, and Arabic on it. There was no such thing as an Arab Palestinian currency. There was never any country called Palestine.
The currency of 1948 with HEBREW. Palestine was JEWISH.
The 'Road Map' peace plan and the 'Two State Solution' peace plan are just another re-hashing of a failed policy, the formula of 'land for peace'.
Each peace plan that has been shoved down the throats of the Israeli people in the last 30 years, has failed, and they have all been based on the 'land for peace' formula.
Here are some of the latest peace plans and summits from the last 30 years that have all been based on the formula of 'land for peace'. All have utterly failed and literally 'bled' Israel.
Camp David Accords (1978)
The Reagan Peace Plan (September 1, 1982)
Madrid Conference of 1991
Oslo Accords (1993)
Wye River Memorandum (October 23, 1998)
The Clinton Peace Plan (December 23, 2000)
Mitchell Commission (Plan) ( October 17, 2000 )
The Tenet Plan (June 10, 2001)
Camp David 2000 Summit (2000)
Taba summit (January, 2001)
The Zinni Plan (March 26, 2002)
Elon Peace Plan (2002)
Arab Peace Initiative (March 28, 2002)
The 2002 Nusseibeh-Ayalon Principles
The People's Voice (July 27, 2002)
March 2002 Saudi Peace Initiative
Geneva Accord (October 20, 2003)
Sharm el-Sheikh Summit of 2005 (February 8, 2005)
2006 Franco-Italian-Spanish Middle East Peace Plan
Saudi peace proposal
Red Sea Summit
The Road map
Did you skip over reading all those peace plans and summits? No fair. Read them each, and concentrate on them. We bled and paid a high price for each one of those 'solutions for peace'.
What we should be saying to the U.S. administration is that we appreciate them wanting to make peace in the region, but they've gotten nowhere, except for weakening Israel and emboldening the Moslem Arab countries and terrorists. Thanks America, but no thanks. We'll handle it from here on out.
Our great prophet, Isaiah said in 32:17: "The product of righteousness shall bring peace; and the effect of righteousness, quiet and security forever." Got it? I think our great prophet was smarter then Bush & Co., Clinton & Co. and Carter & Co.
So, I propose we stop with all these peace plans. We should aim for justice and righteousness. We should pursue, not 'peace', but our enemies. Israel must crush the terrorist infrastructure. Israel must bring the Arab nations who conspire against her to their knees until they beg us for peace and give us an unconditional surrender. The only way to stop this war, is to WIN it.
The corrupt Palestinian Authority has forfeited its right to exist. It has encouraged, born, fostered, and sponsored terrorism. It has violated it's commitments it made in every peace treaty signed, which was to stop their violence and terror. We should mete out justice to those Arab terrorists and leaders who have spilled our people’s blood, to those Arab leaders who hold our soldiers captive, and to all the Arab and Moslem nations who conspire against us with threats of annihilation.
Justice we should pursue. We should demand the immediate criminal prosecution of the MUSLIM WAQF in JERUSALEM for destroying the Temple Mount.
We should bring PA leader Mahmoud Abbas to justice for his terrorist past, his involvement in the Massacre of our young athletes in the 1972 Munich Olympics. He wrote his Ph.D. dissertation, later published as a book, by denying the Holocaust.
We should also bring to justice any of our own leaders (whom I shall not name here) who have become corrupted, accepted bribes, armed our enemies, and released convicted terrorists. To these politicians who have sold themselves out, well, as an acquaintance of mine says, “They give ‘working girls’ a bad name. The Knesset today is the biggest brothel in Israel.”
By pursuing justice and righteousness, the world will be a better place, a safer place, and a more peaceful place.
So to all those planning the slicing up of Israel like a salami in Annapolis this November, I say, "Peace off!" We are going with the 'Isaiah Plan'. Righteousness.
And the result of pursuing righteousness will bring us peace.
PEACE shall be the FRUIT of RIGHTEOUSNESS.

Dan, a listener, wrote me this email:
I believe God created women to be happy. They radiate the feminine qualities of the Mind of God.
* Dan's brief bio that he wrote me:
"I am an American. A fan of the Tamar Yonah show. I am a retiree. I worked at a couple of dot coms and was a technical trainer at one of them before retiring. I loved school. I went to half a dozen universities and studied 8 years full time as an undergraduate. I have taken up writing as a hobby. Lately, I have written a couple of romances that are unpublished."
Dan thinks all women need to be arrested. What do you think?

WE JUST CAN'T BE LEFT ALONE. HOW MANY WAYS CAN THEY TRY TO SPLIT JERUSALEM? The Palestinian Authority demands it. The U.N. wants to take it over and 'internationalize' it for themselves. Now, Egyptian voices erupt for Israel's historic capital city.
EGYPTIAN IMAM/TELEVISION PREACHER calls for Jerusalem as the capital of Egypt. Imam Safwat Hijazi who according to wikipedia: "Launched Muslim Brotherhood candidate, Muhammad Mursi's Campaign (the now winner of the Egyptian presidential elections). In his speech to a crowd of thousands of Egyptians, Safwat emphasized that Mursi will lead Egypt's campaign to restore the "United States of the Arabs" with Jerusalem as its capital, and urged listeners to "awake Jews from their slumber" and to march as martyrs toward Jerusalem."
Hijazi and all those that agree with him should take a look at my blog below this one entitled:
Look also how many Egyptians are cheering his speech. Does not bode well, but good thing we have G-d's promise that Israel will prevail.
