Posters leaving out Al Aksa mosque plastered on buses with e. Jerusalem routes.
While tensions continue to simmer around the Temple Mount after riots
in and around the capital’s Old City earlier this month, a new
campaign calling for the construction of the Third Temple atop the
holy site has made its way to the sides of 200 Egged buses in the
city, which now sport posters featuring a picture of a rebuilt temple
on the Mount, and nothing else.
The posters, which contain the phrase, “May the Bais Hamikdosh be
rebuilt speedily and within our days,” were sponsored by the Our Land
of Israel group, which is led by Rabbi Shalom Dov Volpo and activist
Baruch Marzel, leave out the site’s current structures – namely the
the Aksa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock.
The campaign’s organizers chose to plaster the posters on buses whose
routes take them through predominately Arab neighborhoods of east
With regards to the campaign, Volpo said Israel is waiting

“The Arabs and President Obama know that the Temple will be built on
the Temple Mount,” he said. “Instead of the temporary buildings that
are there today.”
Speaking to The Jerusalem Post on Sunday, Marzel said it was no
mistake that the Islamic shrines were left out of the picture.
“We’re representing the truth, in front of everyone, and saying out
loud what every Jew believes,” Marzel said. “That the Third Temple
needs to be built immediately on the Temple Mount and that the mosque
should not be there.”
“When we reach the end of the Pessah Seder tomorrow night, he
continued, “we’ll say, ‘Next year in a rebuilt Jerusalem.’ What does
‘rebuilt’ mean? It means with the Third temple intact.”
Marzel brushed off the furor the ads might elicit from the capital’s
Muslims, saying, “It upsets them that we’re alive, and that we’re
living here.
“If such a basic point is going to piss them off, then we mine as well
say what we truly believe and what we pray for three times a day. That
is to rebuild the holy temple on top of the Temple Mount, and tomorrow
– not to wait any longer.”
