Sixty-six years since the State of Israel was reborn and forty-seven years since the Temple Mount was liberated, Israel is experiencing one of the most critical stages in her history. Jerusalem and the Temple Mount are attacked on a daily basis by Arab Muslim terror organizations, aided by Abu Mazen, leader of Fatah and the so-called "Palestinian" Authority. Members of the Temple Mount Faithful and other Jewish Israelis are attacked as they come to the Temple Mount to glorify the G‑d of Israel on His Holy Mountain and to pray for the building of the Third Holy Temple of G‑d.
The Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement demonstrated Thursday in Jerusalem against the shooting of Yehudah Glick and the closing of the Temple Mount. The bullets shot at Yehudah Glick were not only directed against him but against Israeli sovereignty on the Holy Temple Mount and Jerusalem and against the existence of the Jewish State of Israel
On Sukkot, October 12, 2014, when the Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement was supposed to make a pilgrimage to the Holy Temple Mount in Jerusalem, many Arab rioters gathered themselves on the Holy Temple Mount, carrying an arsenal of stones and using other violent means, in an effort to stop the Temple Mount Faithful from making the Sukkot pilgrimage to the site of the Holy Temple.
The blood moon and dark sun that appeared last week on the first night of the Feast of Sukkot 2014 will appear again on the first night of the Feast of Sukkot 2015. According to the prophet Joel, these signs indicate judgment upon the nations and groups that continue to pressure and fight against Israel in order to destroy her.

Israel is G‑d's chosen land,
Jerusalem — His holy city.
Yerushalyim — doubly sacred,
One in Heaven — one on earth.
Yerushalem — complete and whole,
her Temple filled with love and peace.
Her presence felt, embracing all,
G‑d's Spirit, which will never cease.
Nations come, and conquerors go,
wars directed to one place.
Evil spreading through the world, aimed against the Jewish race.
But we'll stand firm, our Temple's there,
though the Mount, itself, is bare.
We'll guard and save her, through our faith,
and she'll maintain her loving care.
... the building of the Third Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem in our lifetime in accordance with the Word of G‑d and all the Hebrew prophets, and the liberation of the Temple Mount from Arab/Islamic occupation so that it may be consecrated to the Name of G‑d.
This is the national anthem of Israel, depicting the struggles, triumphs, and faithfulness of the Jewish people in the land that God gave to them, according to the Scriptures.
Experience the holy land and visit Jerusalem, Israel. You will long to walk her ancient streets and pray where the walls cry out to heaven.
