Jerusalem 'Eternal Capital of the State of Palestine'
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Sunday vowed to pursue efforts to end the split between the West Bank and Gaza, and thanked Hamas and all Palestinian groups for supporting his statehood bid at the UN.
Abbas, speaking to thousands of supporters in Ramallah during a rally organized by the PA to celebrate the UN General Assembly‚Äôs vote in favor of upgrading the status of the Palestinians to non-member observer state, said he would focus his efforts now on ‚Äúrestoring unity of the Palestinians and their lands and institutions.‚ÄĚ
Abbas said the Palestinians would continue their struggle until the Palestinian flag is raised over the walls of Jerusalem‚Äôs Old City and churches. He said that Jerusalem was the ‚Äúeternal capital of the State of Palestine.‚ÄĚ...
Other nonsense that comes out of Palestinian supporters, rebuked.

‚ÄúI would like to assure you and the Jewish community that the Uniting Church does not accept the view that Jesus was Palestinian. We affirm that Jesus and most of his early followers were Jewish. We note that Jesus was born neither in Israel nor in 'Palestine', but in the Roman-occupied province of Judea,..." ---Stuart MacMillian
Penny, that temple that will be built by human hands, is part of God's prophecy. So that shouldn't be unexpected, you should take note of this,
Dr. Thomas Ice wrote: ...in the American media has been the ongoing saga of the so-called " peace process" between Israel and the Arabs, popularly known as " Palestinians." This, of course, is not surprising to those of us who take a literal view of Bible prophecy, since Israel is at the center of imminent future events. However, I am constantly annoyed by the steady stream of myths and propaganda that streams from the global media, often misinforming the world about the modern land of Israel. This month I want to demythologize a number of popular notions about the Land of Israel, so that prophecy-loving believers may not be taken in by what they hear and see in today' s media.
Jim, your focus is on a building made by man's hands. what does this have to do with your salvation, if you have been saved from your sins? is not the depravity of the soul without Christ enough to capture your attention, that you have been set free?

Penny and others there is going to be a third temple, excerpt from, Is It Time for The Temple? as I pointed out before, you can read the excellent summary (It's official, I didn't write it ) to, Why the Differences Over What the Bible Says, and yes, the sermon is good to, so read that.
Penny is trying to tell you the 3rd temple is here, its the Church. Its pretty selfish of your people to encourage Israeli Jews to shed the blood of palestinians just so you wont feel insecure about your failed theology
By the way, the URL for my very first message in this thread is still good.

Thomas Ice wrote: In spite of contemporary turmoil, Israel' s Third Temple will one day be rebuild as Dr. Price and I demonstrated in Ready To Rebuild from Daniel 9:24-27; Matthew 24:15; 2 Thessalonians 2:4; Revelation 11:1-2; 13:14- 15. Few observers of world events ever thought Israel would become a nation again, but it did occur in 1948. Yet, there will be a rebuilt temple by the middle of the seven-year tribulation in order to facilitate the fulfillment of Bible prophecy.

Christ is the Lamb of God, to sacrifice animals is to reject salvation in the true Lamb.... a form of cursing oneself.
Ah, SteveR, the news article was from this month, June 7th. Since, I saw it only yesterday, it's really germane to me!
Yes, the fact was bemoaned in the article that the Israelis should have kept the Temple Mount. We Christians encourage them to take it back. If I could've found a later article, I would've used that to put my original comment in. Jerusalem belongs to Israel. Christian Zionists: The Real Terrorists? No the Palestinians and their supporters are.
