    The multi-year coronavirus pandemic is now firmly branded as a benchmark in modern memory. Likewise, in the first verse of the Book of Amos, the 8th century BCE biblical prophet referred to “two years before the earthquake” as an anchor to the events he was about to relate. Two centuries later, the prophet Zechariah again referred to this destructive earthquake period, so deeply was it ingrained in the collective psyche.
    Now, for the first time, a team of Israel Antiquities Authority archaeologists in Jerusalem’s City of David report that they have found unprecedented concrete evidence of this 8th century BCE earthquake in the ancient capital.

  • The Jewish Nation Still Mourns Over Jerusalem’s Destruction Thousands of Years Later
    Jerusalem is the most important city in the world for the Jewish People. That is precisely why it was crowned as the capital of the Jews thousands of years ago under King David. It is also the reason that Jerusalem was renewed as the capital of the modern State of Israel. In fact, the importance of Jerusalem is clearly demonstrated today, Tisha B’Av (the nineth day of the Jewish month of Av). Tisha B’Av commemorates the destruction of the First and Second Holy Temples in the heart of Jerusalem thousands of years ago — the first time by the ancient Babylonians and the second time by the ancient Romans. Note that this all took place long before Islam was created and well before the Arab armies invaded and occupied the Land of Israel. It is even well before Mohammad was born. This connection between the Jewish Nation and Jerusalem is so inherent that modern-day Jews mourn, fast and pray very year on this tragic day.

    A battle that will never be forgotten. Feel the historic moments of the Roman siege of Jerusalem in 70 CE that led to the destruction of the Second Temple.
    A breathtaking drama, Temple in Flames, shows the brutal tactics used by Titus and his legions to subdue the besieged city of Jerusalem. In a painfully realistic manner, the film shows the desperate, heroic battle waged by the Jewish fighters to defend their beloved city – to their last drop of blood. The Second Temple was destroyed, and the Jewish people were exiled once again. We still feel that pain. We still feel that distance.

    The book “Islam, Jews and the Temple Mount: The Rock of Our/Their Existence,” is bound to cause an uproar in the Muslim world. Published last year, it presents a comprehensive list of early Islamic sources that recognize the historical Jewish claim to Jerusalem, contrary to modern Muslim religious scholars who—in the context of the Arab-Israeli conflict—deny any Jewish ties to the Temple Mount and promote the argument that no Jewish Temple ever stood there.
