Progress and Protest at the Western Wall

20091023105839Until the recession hit, I was on a routine of leading a tour every December to Israel. I was last there December 2008 and it was my seventh trip. One of the benefits of going every year is seeing the changes and the new discoveries, especially in Jerusalem. And they have been coming fast this decade. In 2004 we saw the Pool of Siloam newly discovered (not the one they showed tourists for years).

Yes Judah I pray and hope that the restoration of Jerusalem will come in our day. every day I am becoming more and more tired of this world and wait to see the King rule from Jerusalem.

    Those recent discoveries and restaurations you talk about make me wish to return there soon – ever since living in Israel for a short time (just a couple months) there’s not one day where i don’t long to go back there, live there. me too, i’d have enjoyed archeology. for that, too, Israel is paradise…

    “Jerusalem, if I forget you,
    fire not gonna come from me tongue.
    Jerusalem, if I forget you,
    let my right hand forget what it’s supposed to do.”
    (Matisyahu)

    Well-written blog post! I subscribe to your blogs and always enjoy them but have never commented. This one compelled me to comment, because I’ve always wanted to write on this particular subject but just couldn’t put it into words. Thank you. You did it for me!
    My husband, son, and I live in Jerusalem and see this issue played out in front of our eyes on a daily basis. There is no greater place to live on the planet, and it disturbs me to see this happening on the Temple Mount. I go up there regularly. It is my favorite place in all of Israel. God’s presence is there despite the mosque and everything that goes along with it. It is HIS mountain, and He WILL be worshiped there!
    “I have now chosen and consecrated this temple so that My name may be there forever; My eyes and My heart will be there at all times.” 2 Chron. 7:16
