Today the Muslims posted a video on Twitter of a massive snowball fight on the Temple Mount. First of all it is NOT snowing today in Jerusalem or on the Temple Mount. Second of all, if this was truly a holy site to Muslims, do you think they would allow snowball fights? This is what Muslims do to defile the holy sites of other religions, not their own!

On the one hand, Muslims claim that Jews walking on the Temple Mount is disrespectful, as a screenshot of the following tweet exemplifies
Yet Muslims can have snowball fights, play soccer, picnics, murder policemen and perform extreme sports acts on the Temple Mount, and those do not desecrate their holy site? You think they are allowed to have water fights in their holy sites in Saudi Arabia, Meca and Medina? If you think yes then we can sell you the Brooklyn Bridge. And please find us the youtube videos of those water fights or the other desecrating activities they do on the Temple Mount!
The Truth about the Temple Mount
The truth is simple, the Temple Mount, built on Mount Moriah, is holy to the Jewish people since the time of Abraham 3,000+ years ago when Abraham performed the sacrifice of Isaac on the Mount. Later in the 10th century BCE, around 974 BCE, King Solomon built the first Jewish Temple on the Mount, 1,600 years before Mohammad introduced Islam to the world and 1,700 years before the first Muslim Mosque was built!
Another piece of information is that Jews pray facing the Temple Mount three times a day, regardless of where we are in the world, expressing the deep holiness of this place to us. Muslims pray towards Mecca in Saudi Arabia.
Muslims today claim that the Temple Mount is the third holiest site in Islam, but is it holy to them at all? Would they truly desecrate one of their holy sites?
They claim it is holy due to a dream that Mohammad had in the middle of the night on a flying horse to the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount. However, when Mohammad had his dream, there was no Mosque on the Temple Mount!
Mohammad had the dream at around 622 CE. However, the Al-Alqsa Mosque was built on the Temple Mount in 705 CE! So how did Mohammad dream about flying on a horse in the middle of the night to pray at the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem? Of course, Islam prefers to ignore the fact that another Muslim tradition believes that the Al-Aqsa Mosque is really in Saudi Arabia, near where Mohammad lived at the time!

So if a Jew steps foot on the Temple Mount, the Islamic Waqf says we defile and disrespect this holy site.
But if Muslims have a mass snowball fight… that’s not disrespectful… that’s cool 🤔 https://t.co/I19n9rT8Rs
