Groundbreaking Law to Facilitate Jewish Prayer on Temple Mount

Prophecy Sign: Division of the Temple Mount

Temple Mount
Discussions over shared religious observance on the Temple Mount are acrimonious to say the least. Arabs, and even some ultra Orthodox Jews want no part of allowing Jews, (or Christians for that matter),  to be able to worship on the Mount.  However a new law that would allow Jews to pray on the Temple Mount is advancing through the Knesset.

Bible prophecy tells us that a time is coming when the Mount will be divided with part given over to the Jews, (likely with a new Temple), and the remainder given over the the Gentile nations, (Muslim world).

I was given a reed like a measuring rod and was told, “Go and measure the temple of God and the altar, with its worshipers. But exclude the outer court; do not measure it, because it has been given to the Gentiles. They will trample on the holy city for 42 months. Revelation 11:1-2 NIV

Groundbreaking Law to Facilitate Jewish Prayer on Temple Mount
Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) has advanced new laws this morning (Friday) that would enact the establishment of regular prayer hours for Jews visiting the Temple Mount, Yediot Ahronot reports. According the the new laws, which have already begun to undergo legal processing through the Ministry of Religious Services, daily prayer hours would be set for Jewish groups visiting Judaism's holiest site. Currently, Jews have faced frequent attacks of discrimination against them by Israeli Police during Temple Mount visits, in accordance with a ban on Jewish religious activity there stemming from pressure from Palestinian Arab and Muslim groups. Violators of the ban are apprehended immediately, sometimes facing additional bans preventing them from visiting the Mount at all for a predetermined time period. The laws, if passed, would be a monumental upholding of Israel's official stance of religious freedom. While Israel officially liberated the Mount from Arab occupation during the 1967, the law would be the first of its kind to allow both Jewish and Muslim religious activity at the site. 

Fuming Arab MKs storm out of debate on Temple Mount
Right-wing and Arab MKs traded venomous barbs during a discussion of Jewish prayer on the Temple Mount at a meeting of the Knesset Internal Affairs Committee Monday afternoon, with lawmakers accusing one another of stoking the flames of violence. Eventually, the Arab MKs stormed out of the meeting in protest.
