A7 Radio's "Temple Talk" with Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven
Follow Israel Radio on
In these waning end days of the month of the Consoling Father, consolation is indeed in order, and much needed, as the citizens of the State of Israel grapple with the government's mind-boggling decision to free 104 convicted murderers and torturers of Jewish men, women, children, and unborn children, as a "pre-condition" to the next round of suicidal, self-destructive "peace talks." This week's edition of Temple Talk finds Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman in somber reflection, brutal analysis and heartfelt prayer, plugging everything in to this week's Torah reading of parashat Re'eh. Ultimately our fate is not determined in Washington - it is to be determined here, in the Land of Israel, as G-d tests His people, whom He calls in this very week's Torah portion His "children" and His "treasure," urging them through these events to return to Him and to set the course of their own destiny back on track.

This week at the Temple Institute:
TORAH PORTION: RE'EH: Parashat Re'eh teaches us how to properly conduct the affairs of the nation of Israel in the land of Israel. It warns us against false prophets who preach transgression and weak leaders who make "painful decisions" which are nothing less than gross violations of everything that Torah teaches us, attempting to lead Israel into pacts with foreign cultures and false gods, foisting a Moloch-like death cult upon the righteous people of Israel.
BREAKING NEWS: IN UNPRECEDENTED CAPITULATION TO MOSLEM THREATS OF VIOLENCE GOVERNMENT ORDERS TEMPLE MOUNT CLOSED TO ALL NON-MOSLEMS THROUGH AUG 8TH: It has just been reported that in an unprecedented capitulation to Moslem threats of violence, the government of Israel has ordered the Temple Mount closed to all non-Moslems until the conclusion of the Ramadan holiday on August 8th.
NEW POLICE TEMPLE MOUNT BAN ON CAMERAS? Jews recently ascending the Temple Mount were surprised by a brand-new police directive: Not to take photographs or video clips on the Temple Mount.
TEMPLE MOUNT NEWS: JORDANIAN KING PLEDGES TO FIGHT "JUDAIZATION OF JERUSALEM:" Rabbi Chaim Richman, Director of the Temple Institute, which campaigns for greater Jewish greats on the Temple Mount, expressed his frustration at "the absurd idea that the government of Israel recognizes the so-called 'historical role' of Jordan in Jerusalem. Jordan has absolutely no claim to Jerusalem whatsoever."
"The fact that we cow-tow and grovel before a foreign element like Abdullah and ascribe some kind of role to him on Judaism's holiest site, is an illustration of the low level we are on nationally."
RAMADAN TRASH ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT: These photos were taken on Sunday, July 28, and capture a small sampling of the piles of trash left behind by Moslem Ramadan picnickers on the Temple Mount. Meanwhile, today, Monday July 29, Jews were not allowed to ascend the Mount, (for the 3rd time this month), without explanation. When Jews are allowed to ascend during this month of Ramadan they are accosted by an Arab lynch-mob of screaming men, women and children and stone-throwers. Ostensibly, the police accompanying the Jews is what prevents actual murder from taking place. The police, however, do not pursue the purveyors of hate-speech or the stone-throwers. In recent weeks the Jews have been prevented by the police from traversing the entire (hallachically permitted areas of the) Temple Mount, and direct the Jews to exit the Mount within minutes after entering. In summation: Trash yes, Jews no.
