Jerusalem’s Temple Mount :: What’s In a Name?

The continual momentum of Israel-hating in the world has slowly but surely chipped away at TRUTH and reality… especially when it comes to Jerusalem. When the terrorists failed to destroy the only Jewish country in the world and steal our capital city of Jerusalem by force, they turned to lies and politicians to do the job for them. The Muslim extremists have invented “narratives” and created a new language that aim to destroy and steal Jerusalem and all of Israel from the Jewish People. One of these attempts is to rename Jerusalem’s Temple Mount by using only the name created by Muslims occupiers thousands of years after the First and Second Commonwealths of ancient Israel. During the times of the Tanach (Bible) and throughout the millenia, the area was known by several names, including Har HaBayit (Temple Mount) and Har HaMoriah (Mount Moriah). However, the Muslims extremists have slowly convinced many in the world, including large sections of the European Union and the United Nations, to use the Arabic name Haram al-Sharif. This is a name given to the area by the Muslim occupiers thousands of years later.

It is our job to fight for the TRUTH about Jerusalem! We must show the world that no amount of lies and renaming of Jerusalem’s ancient sites can change the TRUTH. The history and reality of Jerusalem are not negotiable and not a “narrative” — they are facts. No amount of voting by the UN or EU can change the name of Jerusalem or the Temple Mount… and their votes certainly cannot change the fact that Jerusalem is Israel’s eternal unified capital!

154 U.N. nations call Temple Mount solely by Muslim name Haram al-Sharif

The UN gave its preliminary approval to a resolution that referred to the Temple Mount solely by its Muslim name of Haram al-Sharif.
The resolution passed at the UN’s Fourth Committee in New York 154-8, with 14 abstentions and 17 absences. It was one of eight pro-Palestinian resolutions approved on Friday, out of a slate of more than 15 such texts the committee is expected to approve. The UN General Assembly will take a final vote on the texts in December.
Ben Bourgel, the Israeli political coordinator at the UN mission in New York, pushed the committee on the issue of Jerusalem, asking why it was so difficult for UN member states to use the phrase Temple Mount.
“Is it acceptable in this committee’s view that in the resolutions presented it is inconceivable to add the phrase ‘Temple Mount?’” Bourgel asked.
His remarks referenced the resolution entitled, “Enforcing Israeli practices affecting the human rights of the Palestinian people in the occupied Palestinian territory, including east Jerusalem.”
That text states that the UN is “gravely concerned by the tensions and violence in the recent period throughout the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including east Jerusalem and including with regard to the holy places of Jerusalem, including the Haram al-Sharif.”
The resolution makes no mention of the Jewish name for the area, the Temple Mount, which is Judaism’s holiest site, and Islam’s third holiest site.
