Rebuilding The Jewish Temple Of Jerusalem

An artist impression of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Temple

There are serious efforts (even a crowdfunding campaign) to rebuild the Jewish temple at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. It seems possible to rebuild the temple, destroyed in 70 AD by the Romans, without having to demolish the islamic Dome of the Rock and the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

It would be the third temple, after Solomon's first temple (10th century BC - 587 BC) and the second one (516 BC - 70 AD) (3D-tour). I wonder what would be the implications on Jewish faith if this temple was indeed rebuild. After the muslims conquered Jerusalem in 634, they constructed the Dome of the Rock as a victory monument, so I also wonder how they will react if the Jewish temple will be built adjacent to the Dome.

  1. An interesting juxtaposition by anyone’s standards.

  2. May well be the sign of a new age of enlightenment if they can pull this off.

  3. I see you chose not to capitalise Islamic and Muslim. Since you capitalise Jewish and Romans, it seems this is a deliberate show of disrespect. This is too bad because I initially found your idea intriguing when I thought it was a project to glorify God. If it's just a project to provoke Muslims, don't you think there's enough hatred in the world right now without stirring up more?
