On "Jerusalem Day", one of the most important days in the history of the redemption of Israel, the Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement marched from Ammunition Hill in northern Jerusalem to Biblical Jerusalem and the Holy Temple Mount.
During the march the Faithful Movement demonstrated against the strong pressure that came from Washington D.C., under the leadership of President Barack Hussein Obama, to not allow the Faithful Movement to carry along with them two marble cornerstones (each weighing 6.5 tons) for the Third Holy Temple on their way through East Jerusalem. The pressure on Israel from President Barack Hussein Obama to not build in East Jerusalem, and especially not to build the Holy Temple on the Temple Mount, is a result of the American pro-Arab policy to make Biblical Jerusalem into an Arab-Islamic capital.
Unfortunately, the Israeli authorities again demonstrated weakness and forbid the Faithful Movement from marching with the two cornerstones on this godly day that symbolizes, more than any other day in the modern history of Israel, the call of the G‑d of Israel to rebuild His Holy Kingdom in Biblical Jerusalem and His Holy Temple on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem. The liberation of the Holy Temple Mount and Biblical Jerusalem during the Six Day War was not a coincidence in the exciting relationship between G‑d and Israel but rather it was a clear fulfillment of the desire and the expectation of the G‑d of Israel and His people Israel during the last 1,940 years to rebuild His Holy Kingdom and His Holy Temple in Jerusalem and to open a new godly era in the life of Israel and all mankind. The intention of G‑d during the Six Day War, when He fought together with His Israeli soldiers against the Arab-Islamic nations that attacked His people Israel and when He defeated these enemies in only six days, was most clearly to rebuild His Holy Temple and Biblical Jerusalem and to make both of them, together with the children of Israel, the end-time focus and foundation of His Holy Kingdom, exactly as He prophesied thousands of years ago:
"And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the L‑rd's house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all the nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the L‑rd, to the house of the G‑d of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth Torah, and the word of the L‑rd from Jerusalem. And he shall judge among the nations, and shall decide among many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation; neither shall they learn war any more. And they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid; for the mouth of the L‑rd of hosts has spoken it." (Isaiah 2:2-5; Micah 4:1-4)
The Temple Mount Faithful Movement heard this call of G‑d to His people Israel that came again from the liberated Holy Temple Mount to immediately rebuild His Holy Temple and then answered it. Gershon Salomon, who was present in 1967 on the day of the liberation of the Holy Temple Mount standing with his army unit on the location of the First and Second Temples, heard this call of G‑d and swore to dedicate his life to the rebuilding of the House of G‑d with no delay, and formed the Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement. On Jerusalem Day 2010, Gershon stood once more on Ammunition Hill before the G‑d of Israel and again swore not to give-in to any pressure that comes upon Israel from the world or to any weakness from Israel's leadership but rather to obey the call of G‑d to immediately rebuild His Holy Temple and Holy Kingdom that will open a new godly and moral era which will change the face of all mankind in a time when it is so desperately needed. He swore not to rest day or night and to awaken Israel and the entire world to bring to pass this major godly vision in our lifetime. Gershon stated to both the Israeli and international media that nothing can stop the G‑d of Israel from His determined decision to remove the enemy from His Holy Mountain and to rebuild His Holy Temple without delay. Gershon reminded President Barack Hussein Obama to never forget that he is not the leader of the world; rather there is only one leader — the Almighty G‑d of Israel and the entire universe, and only His Word will come to pass. On Ammunition Hill, and also in front of the American Consulate in East Jerusalem, Gershon warned President Obama and his partners from the European Union and the Arab-Islamic enemies of Israel with the Word of G‑d as follows:
"The burden of the Word of the L‑rd concerning Israel. The saying of the L‑rd, who stretches out the heavens, and lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him; Behold, I will make Jerusalem a threshold of poison to all the peoples round about, and it shall also be for Judah during the siege against Jerusalem. And on that day I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all the peoples: all that burden themselves with it shall be grievously hurt: and all the peoples of the earth shall be gathered together against it.... On that day shall the L‑rd defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that stumbles among them at that day shall be like David; and the house of David shall be like a divine being, like the angel of the L‑rd before them. And it shall come to pass on that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. But I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplication?" (Zechariah 12:1-3, 8-10a)
The march of the Temple Mount Faithful Movement from Ammunition Hill to the Holy Temple Mount took place on Wednesday, May 12, 2010, during a very critical time in the history of Israel and the entire world. Everyone should know that Ammunition Hill was, until 1967, a strong Arab enemy fortress filled with heavy bunkers from where the Arab forces attacked northern Jerusalem during the 1967 Six Day War. Many Israeli soldiers sacrificed their lives during their heroic battle on Ammunition Hill, in order to defend Jerusalem and open the way toward liberating the Holy Temple Mount and Biblical Jerusalem, from where the Arabs attacked West Jerusalem. In the midst of that strategic battle appeared the G‑d and Father of the children of Israel, who fought valiantly together with His brave Israeli soldiers. After nineteen centuries of destruction and foreign occupation, the Holy Temple Mount, Biblical Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, Gaza, Sinai and the Golan Heights became once again sovereign parts of the Land of Israel as G‑d promised to His people.
As we mentioned above, in the midst of this important and exciting march we planned to carry with us the two large marble cornerstones for the Holy Third Temple. We prayed that G‑d would strengthen the leadership of Israel to never fear any pressure from human beings but rather to trust the Almighty G‑d of Israel. Gershon stated that despite the fact that we could not carry the two cornerstones for the Holy Third Temple with us during this march, the Temple Mount Faithful Movement will fight again and again to carry the cornerstones for the Holy Third Temple with them in the coming marches.
Nevertheless, the march of the Faithful Movement on Jerusalem Day took place on the same path that we originally planned through East Jerusalem. In front of the monuments for the Israeli soldiers, who fell on their way to the Holy Temple Mount and Biblical Jerusalem, we memorialized them before G‑d. We promised them that we will complete what they started when they sacrificed their lives for G‑d and His Holy Mountain in Jerusalem.
In front of the American Consulate in East Jerusalem we demonstrated against the anti-Israeli pressure from President Obama and his international partners. We declared that we obey only the Almighty G‑d of Israel and we will never submit to them or any other human powers. Together with G‑d we shall soon rebuild the Holy Temple and continue to build Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the G‑d and people of Israel. We shall continue to rebuild Judea, Samaria, the Golan Heights and every portion of the Land of Israel given only to His people Israel, as G‑d has called us to do during this exciting time of redemption of the land and people of Israel:
"Behold, days are coming, says the L‑rd, when the ploughman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him who sows seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt. And I will bring back the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink their wine; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them. And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be plucked up out of their land which I have given them, says the L‑rd thy G‑d." Amos 9:13-15
From the American Consulate we continued to march to Biblical Jerusalem and the Holy Temple Mount. In front of the Jaffa Gate entrance to Biblical Jerusalem we swore like our forefathers did on behalf of all the people of Israel faithfulness to Jerusalem and to the Holy Mountain of G‑d: "If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning, if I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I do not set Jerusalem above my highest joy." Psalm 137:5-6
When we came to the Holy Temple Mount we swore faithfulness to the G‑d of Israel and His Holy Mountain. We swore not to rest day or night until the Holy Third Temple is rebuilt and the words of the Psalm of David be soon fulfilled and become a reality in our lifetime:
"A Ma'alot Poem of David. I was glad when they said to me, Let us go into the house of the L‑rd: when our feet stood within thy gates, O Jerusalem; O Jerusalem, built as a city that is compact together: there the tribes used to go up, the tribes of the L‑rd, an appointed practice for Israel, to give thanks to the name of the L‑rd. For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they who love thee shall prosper: peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces. For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee. For the sake of the house of the L‑rd our G‑d I will seek thy good." Psalm 122
The march of the Temple Mount Faithful Movement from Ammunition Hill to the Holy Temple Mount was an important step towards the rebuilding of the Holy Temple of G‑d on the Holy Temple Mount in Jerusalem, and the strengthening of Jerusalem as the eternal capital of the people and land of Israel and the focus of His Holy Kingdom for Israel and the entire world as it was prophesied in Isaiah 2:1-5.
