Construction on that has already begun. Quoting: Anonymous Coward If anything this will be a symbolic gesture by the anti-christ, to form a fake union with the Arabs, in order to begin building the third-temple.
Does the Third Temple have to be on the Temple mount to make it Legit?
My idea of Third Temple is a little different than most.
I think Israel should wait before razing that abomination of conquest, the Al-Aqsa mosque.... not just to avoid the ire of 1.6 billion crazies all over the world
but also because no matter how beautiful and divinely-destined the 3rd Temple is, it will NEVER be as beautiful as the one that is in (Jewish) people's hearts & imaginations through-out 2,000 years of exile and return.
I think the HOPE is the biggest thing a human being can have. So while Jews HOPE for re-built of 3rd Temple and eventually for Moshiah's return.... they should continue to be AWESOME -- to be educated, to build, construct, invent and otherwise bring light upon nations & improve the human condition all over the world. That's the idea anyway, doesn't always happen like that in the messy "real-world".
That's the biggest difference between (real, true) Judaism and totalitarian mega-cults like Islam: Islam tries to make their conquered places of worship as LAVISH and GARISH as possible --- while Jews build relatively modest synagogues precisely because the REAL kingdom of God is not in a building but in the MIND & HEART of a person, in the person's soul & divenly-inspired imagination.
Which is why Jews are smart -- because their very religion & faith is constructed in such a way as to encourage DEEP thinking and constant questioning and creativity.
But I, um, digress :)
