    There are so very few of these ancient ruins left in the world. It’s really an ugly act to destroy these sites for no reason. Unfortunately, so many of the locations are in Islamic countries like Iraq, Iran, Turkey, Syria, Jordan, Egypt where they are not well maintained.

    “Despite Israel’s victorious return to the Temple Mount in the miraculous Six Day War of 1967, Moslem authorities have embarked upon a campaign to destroy the Jewish people’s historical and Divinely-appointed connection to this holy site. Their efforts have reached a fever pitch, and nothing is being done to stop them!”
