A new video which was recently posted to YouTube depicts Arabs playing soccer on the Temple Mount, the Jewish people's holiest site as it is the place upon which stood the First and Second Holy Temples. The First Holy Temple was built by King Solomon as recounted in the Book of Kings and was destroyed in 586 B.C.E. by the Babylonian armies. The Second Holy Temple was built less than a hundred years later and stood until the Roman Legion destroyed it in 70 C.E.
The video goes on to show Arabs cursing the people who are filming them as they gather in the area.
The individuals who uploaded the video clip to YouTube have issued an urgent call to the thousands of Jews who visit the Western Wall to go up to the Temple Mount and stop those Arabs who defile the place.
The call says that “a Jewish presence on the Temple Mount will help stop the desecration. Remember who sets the agenda on the Temple Mount: it is only the Israeli police. The more Jews that go up to the Temple Mount, the less Arabs that will be allowed to go up by the police.”
The call also noted that Muslim holy sites such as Mecca and Islam are treated respectfully by Arabs, and that only on the Temple Mount may one find Arab children playing ball or Arabs harvesting olives.
“This behavior may undermine the fact that the Muslims themselves believe the Temple Mount is a holy site for Islam,” reads the call. “And what they claim as Muslim holiness on the Temple Mount, might really be an excuse to harm the Jewish presence on the Temple Mount.”
