Third Temple Watch
"It would almost seem as if the gospel of Christ
and the gospel of Antichrist were destined
to originate from the same people"
Winston Churchill, Sunday Illustrated Herald, February 8, 1920
Messianic groups among many Jews and among some sects of Christianity are calling for the destruction of Masjid al-Aqsa and the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem and replacing them with a modern-day replica of the First and Second Temples. While this subject has eluded media and political debate, it is a subject of real concern. Old Testament accounts of the future coming of the Messiah allude to the presence of the Temple. And, in fact, the Temple was in place at the time of the arrival of Jesus (peace be upon him). However, not accepting him as the Messiah, Jews still believe that the Messiah has yet to come. With this erroneous belief, there are many among them calling for the reconstruction of the Temple in an effort to welcome the Messiah.
Jesus (peace be upon him) is accepted by Muslims and Christians as the true Messiah. And it is accepted by both that he (peace be upon him) will come again in the End of Time. When he arrives he will fight an AntiChrist, al-Masih ad-Dajjal. In Arabic this indivdual is often referred to as the Imposter Messiah - imposter because people will accept him as the Messiah. Christians believe that the establishment of the Third Temple will welcome this False Messiah.
This is where things get twisted. Despite the fact that Christians believe that the Third Temple will herald the coming of the AntiChrist, and despite the fact that Israel is not only killing Muslims but Christians as well in attempts to build it, there are right wing Christians and evangelicals who openly support the Israeli attempts to build the Third Temple. Below is a series of links from various backgrounds, understandings and religions, regarding the current plans for building the Third Temple.

Moslems Persecute Christians In PA Areas - that old divide and conquer tactic. This site is maintain by a US Christian organization. It mentions the vandalism of Christian grave sites (without evidence, but still suggesting it to be at the hands of Muslims). And even if the vandals were Muslims, who put those people in their graves to begin with? - why, none other than Israel itself.

Noticeable confusion between 'Masjid Al-Aqsa' and the 'Dome of the Rock - don't fall for this trap.
The "Peaceful" Solution Proposal still calls for destruction of Al-Aqsa: look at the model closely, Dome of the Rock remains, while Aqsa is destroyed. Don't fall for this trap. The Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa are NOT the same thing.
Jews for Allah: Masjid ul Aqsa is the reconstructed Third Temple - this should be asked of knowledgeable scholars before any validity is given to this claim.
Third Temple Hats?!: this is simply pathetic.
