Episode: “A History of the Mount”
Atop the Mount of Olives, Zola presents the fascinating history of the Temple Mount, the place that saw God save Isaac from sacrifice, that saw temples raise and temples destroyed, and where restored Israel looks forward to a final temple that will herald Messiah’s return.
Series: “Age of Terror”
When God chose Israel as His people, He not only placed them at the crossroads of history, but also at the center of the empires of their times. Time, and again, this little country has endured siege and upheaval, destruction and exile, only to rise from the ashes and start anew. In this series, Zola is joined in the studio by Walid Shoebat, an ex-Muslim terrorist who was born in Bethlehem. Walid provides unique insights into the world of terrorism and sounds a clear trumpet of warning concerning the days ahead. His testimony of faith is poignant and his view of Biblical prophecy commands attention.

Caption transcript for Age of Terror: “A History of the Mount” (2/8)

  • 00:29 SHALOM, HELLO AGAIN.
  • 00:30 WE'RE BACK AGAIN IN OUR SERIES >>"THE AGE OF TERROR",
  • 00:33 A SERIES I, IN SOME WAYS, DISLIKE MAKING, BUT HAS TO BE MADE.
  • 00:39 OUR GUEST IS WALID SHOEBAT.
  • 00:41 HE'S BEEN WITH US BEFORE.
  • 00:42 HE STARTED OUT AS A MUSLIM AND A TERRORIST, A GENUINE PALESTINIAN TERRORIST.
  • 00:46 HE MET CHRIST AND HE'S SAVED AND HE'S GOT SO MUCH INFORMATION FOR US.
  • 00:51 FIRST WE'LL GO TO LOCATION IN >>JERUSALEM ON THE MT. OF OLIVES.
  • 00:55 WELCOME TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH.
  • 00:59 WE'VE FILMED FROM HERE MANY TIMES BEFORE
  • 01:01 AND I HAVE DETAILED THE HISTORY >>OF THIS TEMPLE MOUNT
  • 01:04 WHERE BEHIND ME YOU SEE THE DOME OF THE ROCK, THE AL AQSA MOSQUE
  • 01:08 AND OF COURSE, MOST OF JERUSALEM.
  • 01:10 IT HAS A WONDERFUL HISTORY AND IT'S IN CONTENTION TODAY AS IT >>ALWAYS HAS BEEN.
  • 01:16 WE'VE SAID THESE THINGS BEFORE, BUT FRANKLY WE HAVE A WHOLE NEW >>AUDIENCE ON PAX
  • 01:22 PLUS THESE THINGS BEAR REPEATING >>I THINK.
  • 01:24 THE HISTORY OF THIS MOUNTAIN, >>SO FAR AS JEWISH OCCUPATION OF THE PLACE STARTS WITH ABRAHAM.
  • 01:31 WHEN GOD COMMANDED ABRAHAM TO BRING ISAAC IN SACRIFICE,
  • 01:36 HE MADE A JOURNEY TO JERUSALEM >>FROM BEERSHEBA.
  • 01:38 HE TRAVELED 3 DAYS IT SAYS AND >>WHEN HE CAME TO THE MOUNTAIN,
  • 01:43 HE OFFERED ISAAC, THE TRADITION IS,
  • 01:45 PRETTY MUCH WHERE YOU SEE THE >>DOME OF THE ROCK STANDING TODAY.
  • 01:51 THEN JERUSALEM DROPS OUT OF SIGHT AS A JEWISH SITE,
  • 01:55 THE EXODUS HAPPENS, THEY GO TO >>EGYPT, THEY COME BACK,
  • 01:58 THEY HAVE JUDGES THEN THEY HAVE >>KINGS AND FINALLY IN KING DAVID'S TIME,
  • 02:04 HE PURPOSED TO BUILD A TEMPLE TO >>GOD HERE ON THAT MOUNT.
  • 02:09 OF COURSE THERE WERE NO DOMES OR ANY OF THOSE BUILDINGS IN THOSE TIMES.
  • 02:13 IT WAS REALLY JUST AN EMPTY >>MOUNTAIN AND A SMALLER MOUNTAIN.
  • 02:16 WE'RE UP ON THE MT. OF OLIVES, >>WHICH AS YOU CAN SEE IS MUCH HIGHER THAN MT. MORIAH.
  • 02:21 SO, WE ARE LOOKING AT A BUILT UP SITE, >>WHICH WAS BACK THEN JUST EMPTY.
  • 02:30 WELL, DAVID BEGAN TO COLLECT MATERIALS.
  • 02:32 HIS FRIEND HIRAM, THE KING UP ON >>TYRE SENT CEDAR WOOD.
  • 02:38 DAVID COLLECTED GOLD AND SOLOMON >>IN HIS TIME, DAVID'S SON
  • 02:43 BUILT THE FIRST TEMPLE OF GOD ON THIS MOUNTAIN.
  • 02:46 IF YOU HAD A SEAT RIGHT HERE AND >>WATCHED THIS HISTORY,
  • 02:49 YOU WOULD SEE THE JEWISH TEMPLE >>RISE SOME 3000 YEARS AGO.
  • 02:53 BUT, THAT TEMPLE ENDURED THROUGH A DIFFICULT PERIOD WHEN ISRAEL >>WAS DIVIDED
  • 02:57 AND SOON NEBUCHADNEZZAR AND THE CALDEANS, WELL, NOT SOON BUT IN >>5 CENTURIES OR SO,
  • 03:03 4 CENTURIES, CAME DOWN ONTO >>JERUSALEM, LAID SIEGE AND RAIDED >>THE TEMPLE
  • 03:09 AND TOOK AWAY THE ARTIFACTS >>AND SET FIRE AND JUST DESTROYED >>THE WHOLE PLACE.
  • 03:14 NOT AN EASY JOB, IT WAS 34 ACRES >>OF STONE CONSTRUCTION,
  • 03:19 BUT THEY FINISHED IT OFF AND THEY CARRIED BACK CAPTIVES TO BABYLON.
  • 03:25 AMONG THOSE CAPTIVES, DANIEL AND >>THE ROYAL COURT,
  • 03:27 EZEKIEL IN THE STREETS WITH THE PEOPLE AND THEY CHRONICLED THE >>TIMES FOR US.
  • 03:34 THEY WERE RELEASED FROM THE CAPTIVITY IN 70 YEARS
  • 03:37 ACCORDING TO THE PROPHECY OF JEREMIAH 29:10.
  • 03:39 THE IMPRISONMENT OF THE PEOPLE IN BABYLON WOULD ENDURE 70 YEARS
  • 03:46 AND THEN ZERUBBABEL LAID THE >>FOUNDATIONS OF THE 2ND TEMPLE.
  • 03:52 THEY WERE FIGHTING WITH THE SAMARITANS AT THE TIME
  • 03:54 IN THE MANNER THAT THEY'RE >>FIGHTING WITH THE PALESTINIANS >>AT THIS TIME.
  • 03:59 WELL, THEY'RE NOT REALLY FIGHTING,
  • 04:00 BUT IN THE MANNER THAT THEY'RE >>POLICING THE PALESTINIANS.
  • 04:04 ZERUBBABEL WAS THOUGHT TO BE >>CRAZY AND SOME SAY HE WAS CRAZY.
  • 04:11 HE MIGHT HAVE BEEN, BUT THAT >>DOESN'T DISQUALIFY YOU TO BE A >>SERVANT OF GOD.
  • 04:15 HE STILL LAID THE FOUNDATION OF THE TEMPLE AND THE PEOPLE WERE >>EXCITED ABOUT IT
  • 04:20 AND IN THE TIMES ENSUING, THEY PUT UP A SMALLER, SECOND TEMPLE,
  • 04:26 REFERRED TO THIS TIME AS ZERUBBABEL'S TEMPLE.
  • 04:29 BUT, THEN IF YOU SAT HERE AND ABOUT 167 B.C.,
  • 04:33 YOU WOULD SEE ANTIOCHUS, THE GRECO-SYRIAN RULER COMING IN,
  • 04:37 DESECRATING THE PLACE, >>SACRIFICING A PIG ON THE ALTAR,
  • 04:40 THE MACABEES RUNNING HIM OFF AND >>CREATING, IN THE PROCESS,
  • 04:43 THE FESTIVAL OF HANUKKAH, THE FEAST OF DEDICATION AS THEY REDEDICATED THE TEMPLE.
  • 04:48 THE THING STOOD THEN UNTIL KING HEROD AND HE BEGAN TO REMODEL IT >>IN A MOST PROFOUND WAY.
  • 04:57 IT BECAME A HUGE CONSTRUCTION, >>GREEK-ROMAN STYLE.
  • 05:02 BUT, STILL MAGNIFICENT, A WONDER OF THE WORLD,
  • 05:04 AT LEAST THE EQUAL OF SOLOMON'S >>TEMPLE AND INTO THAT TEMPLE, OF COURSE, CAME THE MESSIAH.
  • 05:11 IN THE FIRST CENTURY, JESUS ENTERED THAT TEMPLE TEACHING
  • 05:14 AND RODE THE DONKEY INTO THE EAST GATE,
  • 05:16 WHICH YOU SEE BEHIND ME IN THE EASTERN WALL JUST NORTH OF THE >>DOME OF THE ROCK.
  • 05:22 THE PEOPLE DIDN'T PARTICULARLY >>APPROVE OF THIS ROMAN CONSTRUCTION.
  • 05:28 SOME OF THEM FELT GOD WANTED >>WORSHIP IN SINCERITY AND TRUTH >>AND NOT IN GRANDEUR,
  • 05:34 BUT GRANDEUR THEY GOT UNDER HEROD AND WHEN THE LORD CAME,
  • 05:39 HE HONORED THE PLACE WITH HIS PRESENCE.
  • 05:42 BUT, GENERATION LATER, >>AS ALWAYS IN ISRAEL'S HISTORY, >>THERE WAS MORE TROUBLE.
  • 05:48 THE ROMANS LAID SIEGE TO THE PLACE IN 67 A.D.
  • 05:51 AND THE CONQUEROR TITUS, THE ROMAN GENERAL COMPLETELY WRECKED THE PLACE.
  • 05:58 THEY GOT RID OF THE JEWISH PRESENCE ON THE MOUNT AND
  • 06:01 IT WAS ONE OF THOSE TRAGEDIES >>THAT SEEM TO OCCUR FROM TIME TO >>TIME IN JEWISH HISTORY.
  • 06:07 AFTER THAT TIME, 70 A.D. >>THERE PASSED ANY NUMBER OF YEARS
  • 06:13 WITHOUT MUCH JEWISH ACTIVITY HERE, BUT BY THE TIME OF HADRIAN,
  • 06:19 AN ANTI-SEMITIC ROMAN EMPEROR IN 135 A.D.,
  • 06:22 THE JEWS HAD FOMENTED A REVOLT UNDER BAR COCHBA, A FALSE MESSIAH.
  • 06:29 HE LEAD A REVOLT AGAINST HADRIAN >>AND THE ROMANS AND IT WAS TERRIBLY UNSUCCESSFUL.
  • 06:35 IN TITUS' INVASION, 1.1 MILLION >>JEWISH PEOPLE WERE KILLED.
  • 06:39 IN HADRIAN'S PUTTING DOWN OF THE >>REBELLION IN 135 A.D., ANOTHER 580,000 WERE KILLED.
  • 06:48 IT'S EASY COUNTING OF JEWISH BODIES, 2 MILLION IN ANCIENT TIMES,
  • 06:53 NOT UNLIKE THE HOLOCAUST IN OUR OWN TIME.
  • 06:57 AFTER THAT, THE JEWS REALLY, >>THE DISPERSION HAD STARTED WAY >>BACK WITH NEBUCHADNEZZAR
  • 07:03 CONTINUED THROUGH ALL THESE YEARS, BUT NOW IN EARNEST, THE JEWS LEFT THE LAND.
  • 07:08 THERE WAS NOTHING TO BE HERE FOR.
  • 07:10 HADRIAN PUT UP A TEMPLE ON THE MOUNT CALLED THE TEMPLE OF JUPITER,
  • 07:13 A ROMAN TEMPLE ON PURPOSE, WHERE YOU SEE THE DOME,
  • 07:16 THERE WAS A TEMPLE TO A ROMAN >>GOD AND THAT CERTAINLY KEPT THE >>JEWS OFF THE MOUNT.
  • 07:21 IT DESECRATED THE PLACE IN THEIR MINDS
  • 07:24 AND CHRISTIANS RODE INTO THE >>LAND NOW THAT THE LORD WAS HERE,
  • 07:26 CONVERSIONS TOOK PLACE IN EUROPE, ESPECIALLY IN THE >>EASTERN PART OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE
  • 07:31 AND THESE PEOPLE, THE BYZANTINES CAME DOWN TO THE HOLY LAND AND >>THEY SET UP SHOP HERE
  • 07:37 AND THEY WERE LIVING IN JERUSALEM AND WORSHIPING
  • 07:43 AND THEY BUILT THE CHURCH OF THE >>HOLY SEPULCHER,
  • 07:45 WHICH IS IN THE OLD CITY NEAR THE TEMPLE MOUNT AND SOON, IN THE 7TH CENTURY,
  • 07:54 AFTER THE BIRTH OF MOHAMMED, THE MUSLIMS RODE IN.
  • 07:56 THEY FOUGHT WITH THE BYZANTINES AND THEY BUILT THEIR OWN SHRINES.
  • 08:03 THE DOME OF THE ROCK, WHICH YOU >>SEE WAS BUILT IN 691 A.D.
  • 08:08 AND THE AL AQSA MOSQUE WITH IT >>AND IN THAT MANNER
  • 08:11 THEY MADE A RELIGIOUS SITE OUT >>OF THE JEWISH TEMPLE MOUNT,
  • 08:15 WHICH THE ROMANS BEFORE THEM HAD >>DONE AND FINALLY
  • 08:18 WE COME TO 1099 AND MORE CHRISTIANS BACK FROM EUROPE, THE CRUSADERS.
  • 08:25 THEY RODE IN HERE AND KILLING JEWS AND ARABS ALIKE
  • 08:29 AND TEACHING LOVE AND IT WAS A TERRIBLE TIME.
  • 08:32 AT ONE POINT THEY HERDED 1100 >>JEWISH PEOPLE INTO A SYNAGOGUE >>AND BURNED IT TO THE GROUND.
  • 08:38 IT WAS A TERRIBLE TIME FOR >>JERUSALEM AND IT WAS TO RESCUE >>THE HOLY CITY.
  • 08:45 WELL, IT CREATED QUITE A SITUATION BECAUSE WHEN THEY DISCOVERED THE DOME,
  • 08:50 THEY THOUGHT IT WAS SOLOMON'S TEMPLE.
  • 08:52 THEY THOUGHT THIS WAS >>"TEMPLUM DOMINI" THEY CALLED IT
  • 08:57 AND THEY PUT A CROSS ON THE TOP OF IT.
  • 08:58 YOU KNOW, IT HAD BEEN REALLY >>SUPERIMPOSED ON THE OLD PILLARS OF THE ROMAN TEMPLE TO JUPITER.
  • 09:04 WHEN THE MUSLIMS CAME IN, THE >>ROMAN TEMPLE HAD FALLEN APART, >>THE ROOF WAS GONE,
  • 09:10 BUT ROMAN PILLARS STAND FOREVER >>AND THEY BUILT ON THOSE,
  • 09:12 SO WHAT YOU HAD AT THE END OF >>THE 13TH CENTURY WAS A CHRISTIAN >>CROSS ON A MUSLIM DOME
  • 09:20 ON ROMAN PILLARS ON JEWISH LAND.

  • 10:00 PLEASE CONTACT US FOR MORE INFORMATION.
  • 10:05 WELL, WE'VE MOVED TO ANOTHER SPOT ALONG THE MT. OF OLIVES, A LITTLE BIT FURTHER NORTH.
  • 10:10 YOU SEE THE WILD OLIVE TREES ALL AROUND ME.
  • 10:13 IT'S VERY INTERESTING.
  • 10:14 THE BIBLE CHARACTERIZES THE WILD >>OLIVE BRACHES AS GENTILES WHO ARE BELIEVERS,
  • 10:21 WANTING TO BE GRAFTED INTO THE >>JEWISH OLIVE TREE
  • 10:25 AND HERE ARE THE WILD OLIVE TREES MAKING THERE WAY INTO JERUSALEM.
  • 10:29 YOU CAN ACTUALLY SEE IT HAPPENING ON THE HILL.
  • 10:31 THE CRUSADERS CONTROLLED THE DOME FOR A TIME, BUT LOST IT FINALLY AGAIN TO THE MUSLIMS
  • 10:37 AND THE MARMALUKES FROM EGYPT >>CONTROLLED THE PLACE FOR AWHILE
  • 10:40 AND THEN THE TURKS CAME IN 1517 >>AND THEY TOOK OVER JERUSALEM
  • 10:48 AND THE TEMPLE MOUNT AND IN FACT >>THE WHOLE COUNTRY.
  • 10:50 I'VE TALKED A LOT OF HISTORY SO >>FAR IN THE PROGRAM
  • 10:53 BUT AT THIS POINT WE'RE A LITTLE >>PAST THE TIME WHEN COLUMBUS DISCOVERED AMERICA.
  • 10:58 WELL, THE TURKS ARE GOING ON FOR >>400 YEARS FROM 1517 TO 1917,
  • 11:05 BUT, IN WWI THE BRITISH, WITHOUT FIRING A SHOT,
  • 11:09 MADE A BARGAIN WITH THEM TO CLEAR OUT OF THE WAY AND THEY CAME IN.
  • 11:14 GENERAL ALLENBY GOT OFF HIS >>HORSE AND WALKED INTO JERUSALEM.
  • 11:17 THAT IS THE TRADITION, ONE DOES NOT RIDE TO SEE GOD
  • 11:21 AND AS SALADIN BEFORE HIM AND IN THE OLD DAYS,
  • 11:26 DID NOT RIDE INTO JERUSALEM, BUT GOT OFF HIS HORSE AND WALKED IN.
  • 11:30 THE BRITISH TOOK OVER AND HAD A >>MANDATE HERE BUT, THEY DIDN'T RUN THE PLACE VERY WELL.
  • 11:38 IT'S ONE OF THEIR OUTLYING PROVINCES IN WHICH THEY HAD LITTLE INTEREST.
  • 11:42 THEY WERE ALLIED MORE WITH THE ARABS THAN WITH THE JEWS WHILE >>THEY WERE HERE.
  • 11:47 IN 1947 THE U.N. MET, FEELING GUILTY ABOUT THE HOLOCAUST
  • 11:54 AND DECLARED THAT THE JEWISH >>PEOPLE HAD A RIGHT TO COME HERE
  • 11:59 AND REESTABLISH THEIR ANCIENT BIBLICAL HOMELAND.
  • 12:02 ACTUALLY THIS HAD BEEN SAID BY >>DAVID BALFOUR BACK IN 1917,
  • 12:07 WHERE HE WROTE THE FAMOUS LINE,
  • 12:15 HE WAS A BRITISH PARLIAMENT MEMBER AND A BELIEVER.
  • 12:18 THE BRITISH SORT OF MOVED OUT AS >>THE ARABS AND JEWS FELL TO IT
  • 12:24 AND IN 1948 A WAR OF INDEPENDENCE
  • 12:26 FIVE ARAB NATIONS TRIED TO KILL THE BABY IN ITS CRIB, SO TO SPEAK.
  • 12:31 AS SOON AS THE JEWS DECLARED INDEPENDENCE, THEY ATTACKED,
  • 12:34 BUT SOMEHOW THE JEWISH FORCES WON, WITH HANDGUNS,
  • 12:38 WITH NEXT TO NO EQUIPMENT THEY >>HELD THEIR OWN AND THEY HELD THEIR LAND
  • 12:44 AND SO IT WAS KIND OF A STANDOFF >>WITH JERUSALEM DIVIDED.
  • 12:48 JORDAN CONTROLLED JERUSALEM AND THE WEST BANK, SO CALLED
  • 12:52 AND ARABS IN THE LAND BEGAN WANTING TO GET THE JEWS OUT,
  • 12:56 AT A CERTAIN POINT BEGAN TO CALL >>THEMSELVES PALESTINIANS
  • 13:00 AS THOUGH THEY WERE NATIVE TO THE LAND OF PALESTINE
  • 13:04 BUT THERE WAS NO REAL LAND OF PALESTINE,
  • 13:06 IT WAS JUST A NAME THAT THE EMPEROR HADRIAN GAVE IT,
  • 13:08 THE ONE WHO HAD BUILT THAT TEMPLE OF JUPITER WAY BACK IN THE SECOND CENTURY,
  • 13:13 CHANGED THE NAME OF THE COUNTRY >>TO PALESTINE AND SO IT WAS CALLED UNTIL THE JEWS,
  • 13:18 IT'S RIGHTFUL OWNERS, CAME BACK >>IN 1948 AND CHANGED THE NAME BACK TO ISRAEL.
  • 13:22 BUT, EVENTUALLY IN 1964, ARAFAT >>CAME ON THE SCENE AND STARTED THE PLO,
  • 13:28 THE SO-CALLED PALESTINIAN LIBERATION ORGANIZATION.
  • 13:31 YOU KNOW, AS WE ARE FILMING, >>THERE IS A CONTROVERSY ON THIS >>MOUNTAIN
  • 13:36 ABOUT WHETHER ARAFAT CAN BE BURIED THERE.
  • 13:39 BY THE TIME YOU SEE THE PROGRAM, >>I'M SURE THAT'LL BE RESOLVED.
  • 13:42 BUT, AT THE PRESENT IT'S A CONTROVERSY, BECAUSE HE'S NOT REALLY A STATESMAN.
  • 13:49 HE'S NOT REALLY A PALESTINIAN.
  • 13:50 I MEAN, HE'S AN EGYPTIAN, BORN AND EDUCATED THERE.
  • 13:54 HE TELLS STORIES ABOUT A YOUTH >>IN ISRAEL, SOMEHOW,
  • 13:58 BUT IT'S UNCLEAR HOW THAT COULD >>BE AND HOW YOU CAN VERIFY IT.
  • 14:02 HE CLAIMED TO HAVE FAMILY HERE.
  • 14:03 ONE ISRAELI OFFICIAL IN ANSWER >>TO THE REQUEST THAT ARAFAT BE BURIED ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT,
  • 14:10 SAID, NO, NO, KINGS OF ISRAEL >>ARE BURIED ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT, >>NOT EGYPTIAN TERRORISTS.
  • 14:17 IN THE FUTURE, THIS BRINGS US UP >>TO DATE, BUT IN THE BIBLE,
  • 14:22 OF COURSE, IT COVERS THE FUTURE VERY WELL AND WE'LL SEE ANOTHER >>TEMPLE UP THERE.
  • 14:27 THE DOME WILL EITHER MOVE OR SHARE A SPACE WITH WHAT IS >>CALLED THE TRIBULATION TEMPLE,
  • 14:33 A TEMPLE, AGAIN, OF SACRIFICE ON >>THE TEMPLE MOUNT DURING THE SEVEN YEAR TRIBULATION.
  • 14:40 BUT, THEN IF YOU WERE HERE ON THIS MOUNTAIN AND WATCHING,
  • 14:42 YOU WOULD SEE THE KING COME FROM >>THE TOP OF THE MT. OF OLIVE FROM UP ABOVE WHERE WE ARE,
  • 14:49 RIGHT PAST US HERE AND ON DOWN >>INTO THE KIDRON VALLEY
  • 14:51 AND THROUGH THE EASTERN GATE OF >>THE TEMPLE AND SWEEP AWAY THE TRIBULATION TEMPLE
  • 14:57 AND BUILD THE MILLENNIAL, THE >>TEMPLE OF HIS KINGDOM AND THAT >>WOULD BE THE NEXT 1000 YEARS,
  • 15:06 A TIME OF PEACE IN ISRAEL, AT >>LAST FOR THE WHOLE 1000 YEARS.
  • 15:11 THE LION SHALL LIE DOWN WITH THE LAMB,
  • 15:12 THE CHILD PLAY AT THE SNAKE'S DEN; EVEN THE ANIMALS WILL BE PACIFIED.
  • 15:16 THIS IS A BUSY CITY OF COURSE, >>YOU CAN HEAR IT GOING ON BEHIND ME.
  • 15:20 BUT, IN THE KINGDOM IT WILL BE >>MUCH QUIETER, I THINK AND LESS CONTROVERSIAL
  • 15:26 AS THE LORD WILL RULE OVER THE >>NATIONS AND ISRAEL, AT LAST,
  • 15:29 WILL TAKE IT'S PLACE AT THE HEAD OF THE NATIONS RATHER THAN WHAT IT IS NOW, HATED OF ALL NATIONS.
  • 15:49 I SHALL STAND WITHIN THE WONDER >>OF YOUR WALLS, OH JERUSALEM.
  • 15:55 I SHALL WALK WITHIN THE SPLENDOR >>OF YOUR GATES,
  • 16:00 BEAUTIFUL FOR SITUATION, THE JOY OF THE WHOLE EARTH.
  • 16:05 SURELY THE LORD HAS BLESSED THEE >>AND MADE HIS FACE SHINE UPON THEE.
  • 16:11 JOIN ZOLA LEVITT ON HIS NEXT TOUR OF ISRAEL.
  • 16:17 COME TO ZION WITH SONGS AND EVERLASTING JOY.
  • 16:23 COME, WORSHIP IN THE SPLENDOR OF >>HIS HOLINESS.
  • 16:31 WELL, COME ON AND SEE ISRAEL FOR YOURSELF.
  • 16:34 WE HAVE BEEN DESCRIBING IT ON AIR FOR 25 YEARS.
  • 16:36 ONCE YOU GO THERE, YOU'RE GOING TO SEE THERE'S JUST NOTHING LIKE >>IT IN THE WHOLE WORLD.
  • 16:42 YOUR LIFE WILL CHANGE COMPLETELY.
  • 16:44 WE HAVE SO MANY PEOPLE TELL US >>THAT AFTER THESE TOURS
  • 16:46 AND MANY PEOPLE WHO TRIED TO MOVE THERE.
  • 16:48 IT'S NOT EASY TO DO, BUT SOME HAVE.
  • 16:52 I CALL THEM GRADUATES.
  • 16:52 THEY'VE GRADUATED TO LIVE IN ISRAEL.
  • 16:55 AS OUR GUEST, WALID SHOEBAT >>GREW UP IN ISRAEL, BUT YOU GREW >>UP AS A JORDANIAN.
  • 17:02 THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 17:03 IN FACT, ZOLA, MY FATHER SERVED >>IN THE JORDANIAN ARMY.
  • 17:05 THIS WAS WITHIN ISRAEL, NOW BUT >>YOU WERE CALLED A JORDANIAN.
  • 17:09 THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 17:09 MY FATHER WAS STATIONED IN JERICHO.
  • 17:11 HE WAS WORKING AS A SCHOOL TEACHER.
  • 17:13 I REMEMBER JUST BEFORE THE SIX DAY WAR WE SALUTED KING HUSSEIN,
  • 17:17 WHO CAME AND PARADED IN JERICHO.
  • 17:19 WE WENT TO THE THEATER, TO THE LOCAL THEATER.
  • 17:22 IF WE DIDN'T STAND UP AND SALUTE >>KING, THE NATIONAL ANTHEM,
  • 17:25 YOU GOT WHIPPED YOU GOT HIT, SLAPPED AROUND.
  • 17:28 YOU HAD TO SHOW A LOT OF RESPECT >>FOR THE KING.
  • 17:31 TODAY WE HAVE TO DO THAT FOR MICHAEL MOORE.
  • 17:34 GO AHEAD.
  • 17:34 THE PROBLEM WAS THAT WE DIDN'T KNOW WE WERE PALESTINIANS UNTIL AFTER THE SIX DAY WAR WAS OVER.
  • 17:43 WE WERE PROUD JORDANIANS.
  • 17:44 ISRAEL WAS VICTORIOUS IN THE SIX DAY WAR
  • 17:46 AND ALL OF A SUDDEN WHEN WE WENT >>BACK TO SCHOOL,
  • 17:48 NOW WE WERE EDUCATED THAT WE WERE PALESTINIAN.
  • 17:51 IN FACT, IF YOU LOOK AT THE--
  • 17:53 THAT'S A LITTLE BIT JARRING.
  • 17:54 THE PALESTINIAN CHARTER NEVER INCLUDED JUDEA AS PART OF PALESTINE.
  • 17:59 AHMAD SHUQEIRI WAS THE FOUNDER >>OF THE PLO AND
  • 18:01 JUDEA WAS NEVER INCLUDED, ONLY AFTER THE SIX DAY WAR WAS WON.
  • 18:06 THAT'S WHEN-- >>THEN THEY DECIDED THAT'S PALESTINE.
  • 18:09 THAT'S PALESTINE NOW.
  • 18:10 WHY IS THAT?
  • 18:11 THAT'S BECAUSE THE JEWS CAN'T BE >>RULERS OF MUSLIMS. PERIOD.
  • 18:13 WALID, IS THIS WHOLE THING >>ABOUT PALESTINIAN AND PALESTINE >>MADE UP?
  • 18:18 IT'S, YOU COULD LOOK AT SOME OF >>THE NATIONAL ANTHEMS, THE PALESTINIAN NATIONAL SONGS.
  • 18:25 I MEMORIZED ALL THE PALESTINIAN >>NATIONAL SONGS.
  • 18:28 ONE OF THE SONGS SAYS, (SPEAKING ARABIC)
  • 18:32 WHICH MEANS PALESTINE, MY FOREFATHERS, PALESTINE MY VENGEANCE.
  • 18:37 SO THE TERM PALESTINE BECAME SORT OF A VENGEANCE AGAINST ISRAEL.
  • 18:41 IT WAS CREATED AS A VENGEANCE.
  • 18:43 IT NEVER EXISTED UNTIL ISRAEL TOOK OVER.
  • 18:46 THIS PALESTINIAN CHARTER >>THEY ADOPTED, I READ THE THING.
  • 18:49 30 PARAGRAPHS OUT OF 33 ARE ABOUT SOME OTHER NATION.
  • 18:55 IN OTHER WORDS, KNOCKING ISRAEL.
  • 18:56 WHAT KIND OF GOVERNMENT DOCUMENT >>PICKS OUT SOME NEIGHBORING COUNTRY JUST TO TRASH?
  • 19:02 WE HAD NO QUALMS THAT EGYPT RULED GAZA.
  • 19:07 JAMAL ABDUL NASSER RULED GAZA.
  • 19:10 IN FACT, KING ABDUL ANNEXED JUDEA AND IT WAS ILLEGAL.
  • 19:14 ONLY 2 NATIONS IN THE WHOLE >>WORLD ACCEPTED THE ANNEXATION OF >>JUDEA BY JORDAN.
  • 19:19 IF YOU LOOK AT ISRAEL, IN FACT, >>IN THE SIX DAY WAR
  • 19:22 THEY LIBERATED JUDEA FROM AN OCCUPATION BY JORDAN.
  • 19:26 THAT WAS AN OCCUPATION.
  • 19:27 AS A MATTER OF FACT, THEY TORE DOWN THE WALL.
  • 19:28 THERE WAS A WALL AND THEY LIBERATED ALL THESE PLACES,
  • 19:31 ALLOWED EVERYBODY TO VISIT THE >>HOLY PLACES.
  • 19:33 OF COURSE WE WORSHIPED ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT
  • 19:35 WHILE WE STONED YOU GUYS AND THE RABBIS DOWN BELOW UNDER AT THE WAILING WALL.
  • 19:40 I WAS A PARTICIPANT IN THESE THINGS.
  • 19:41 JERUSALEM WAS DIVIDED ORIGINALLY >>AND AFTER THE SIX DAY WAR, IT WAS NOT DIVIDED.
  • 19:46 NOW THERE ARE FORCES THAT SAY IT OUGHT TO BE DIVIDED AGAIN.
  • 19:49 THE LIBERATOR IS CALLED AN OCCUPIER.
  • 19:52 THE ONE THAT BRINGS FREEDOM IS >>CALLED OCCUPIER.
  • 19:55 ISRAEL BROUGHT FREEDOM TO THE PEOPLE.
  • 19:56 ISRAEL HAS 15 RELIGIONS ACCEPTED >>AS PART OF ISRAEL.
  • 20:00 THEY HAVE BLACK JEWS, THEY HAVE YELLOW JEWS, THEY HAVE EVEN ORANGE JEWS.
  • 20:07 EVERY RACE IN THE WORLD IS THERE >>AND THEY CALL IT RACISM.
  • 20:11 THE PALESTINIAN CHARTER SAYS IT WILL BE AN ARAB STATE AND ISLAM >>WILL BE THE STATE RELIGION.
  • 20:16 THAT'S, TO ME, AMAZING BECAUSE THERE'S CHRISTIAN PALESTINIANS, >>THEY GOT NO SAY-SO.
  • 20:22 OF COURSE THERE ARE.
  • 20:23 BETHLEHEM AND NAZARETH WERE FULL >>OF CHRISTIANS,
  • 20:25 BUT I UNDERSTAND THEY HAVE A LOT >>OF TROUBLES NOW.
  • 20:28 RIGHT.
  • 20:29 THEY ATTEMPT TO COME AND PRAY AT >>THE CHRISTIAN HOLY PLACES IN NAZARETH.
  • 20:33 IN FACT, IN BETHLEHEM, AT THE NATIVITY CHURCH,
  • 20:35 MUSLIMS WILL GO AND PRAY AT THE >>SQUARE AT THE NATIVITY CHURCH
  • 20:39 TRYING TO SEND TO THE CHRISTIAN >>A MESSAGE THAT TOMORROW THIS WILL BE OURS.
  • 20:43 TOMORROW WE WILL CONVERT THIS TO >>A MOSQUE, EXACTLY WHAT HAD HAPPENED TO JOSEPH'S TOMB.
  • 20:49 WE LIKE TO EMPHASIZE ON KRISTALLNACHT, WHAT ABOUT "JOSEPHNACHT".
  • 20:54 WHAT ABOUT THE EVE WHEN JOSEPH'S TOMB WAS DESTROYED?
  • 20:57 THEY TORE IT APART. >>TORE IT APART.
  • 20:58 IN FACT IN PSALM 74, IT TALKS VERY MUCH ABOUT THE ISSUES,
  • 21:02 ABOUT DESTROYING ALL THE HOLY PLACES IN JUDEA
  • 21:04 AND ALL 16 HOLY PLACES IN JUDEA, >>JEWISH HOLY PLACES WERE DESECRATED, ALL OF THEM.
  • 21:10 IN FACT, IF YOU LOOK EVEN AT THE FOOTAGE THAT YOU SEE WHEN THEY >>DESTROYED THE JOSEPH'S TOMB,
  • 21:17 IT SAYS VERY CLEARLY IN PSALM 74,

  • 21:47 PAINTING THE DOME GREEN, MAKING IT A MOSQUE.
  • 21:49 IN FACT, EVEN RAKIM ASABRE SAYS >>THAT THERE IS NO SOLOMONIC TEMPLE ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT.
  • 21:56 YES, THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST AMAZING STORIES.
  • 21:57 THE TEMPLE IS MENTIONED IN GREEK >>HISTORY, ROMAN HISTORY, OF COURSE, JEWISH HISTORY.
  • 22:02 IT WAS ONE OF THE WONDERS OF THE >>ANCIENT WORLD,
  • 22:04 A 34 ACRE STONE CONSTRUCTION ON FOUR LEVELS OF RAMPS, STAIRCASES >>ESPLANADES AND COURTYARDS.
  • 22:13 THEY SAY IT NEVER, EVER EXISTED.
  • 22:16 IN FACT, MANY MUSLIMS BELIEVE >>THAT THE SOLOMON TEMPLE EXISTED.
  • 22:20 THE QURAN TALKS ABOUT SOLOMON.
  • 22:23 MANY MUSLIMS RESPECT THAT.
  • 22:24 BUT, THEY WENT AS FAR AS TO REINTERPRET EVERYTHING TO SAY
  • 22:27 THAT SOLOMON NEVER REALLY HAD A TEMPLE THERE AND GOING FURTHER,
  • 22:30 RAKIM ASABRE, THE PREDECESSOR OF >>HAJ AMIN AL HUSSEINI WAS THE GRAND MUFTI OF JERUSALEM,
  • 22:34 A FRIEND OF ADOLPH HITLER SAYS >>EVEN THE WAILING WALL IS NOT >>PART OF ANY JEWISH HOLY PLACES.
  • 22:42 IT IS CALLED EL BROQ WALL, IS WHERE MOHAMMED THE PROPHET OF >>ISLAM PARKED HIS FLYING ANGEL.
  • 22:49 IN FACT, IF YOU GO TO RACHEL'S TOMB, THIS IS CALLED BILAL MOSQUE.
  • 22:56 THEY'VE RENAMED EVERYTHING TO BECOME MOSQUES AND MUSLIM HOLY PLACES.
  • 23:01 EVEN RACHEL'S TOMB NEAR BETHLEHEM.
  • 23:04 YES, ALL THESE THINGS.
  • 23:05 ACCORDING TO ARAFAT, EVEN JESUS WAS A PALESTINIAN REVOLUTIONIST.
  • 23:08 OH YES, HANAN ASHRAWI, LET ME QUOTE HER,
  • 23:09 JESUS CHRIST WAS A PALESTINIAN >>PROPHET, BORN IN BETHLEHEM, IN MY COUNTRY.

  • 23:28 BUT THAT'S WHAT WE LEARNED.
  • 23:28 IT'S NOT SO AMAZING THAT HE WOULD LIE,

  • 23:54 IN FACT, MOST AMERICANS DON'T KNOW THAT THE YELLOW PATCH THAT THE JEWS HAD TO WEAR
  • 23:57 IN NAZI GERMANY WAS FROM SPAIN >>AS A RESULT OF THE ISLAMIC FUNDAMENTALISM.
  • 24:02 IF YOU LOOK AT THESE CALIPH AL MUTWAKEL, THESE ARE SOME OF THE >>GREATEST CALIPHS IN ISLAM.
  • 24:06 MUTWAKEL INSTITUTED THE YELLOW >>PATCH ON THE RIGHT SHOULDER.
  • 24:10 HURAN AL RASHID, VERY WELL KNOWN, INSTITUTED THE YELLOW PATCH ON THE RIGHT SHOULDER,
  • 24:16 WHICH CAME FROM THE OMAR DECLARATION.
  • 24:17 OMAR BIN AL-KHATTAB WAS THE SECOND CALIPH IN ISLAM.
  • 24:20 HE DECLARED THE OMAR DECLARATION, THE OMAR EDICT.
  • 24:22 IF YOU TAKE THE OMAR EDICT AND >>YOU PARALLEL IT WITH THE LAWS IN GERMANY AGAINST THE JEWS,
  • 24:29 YOU FIND THEM TO BE ALMOST IDENTICAL.
  • 24:32 WHY NOT?
  • 24:33 THERE'S ONE DEVIL AND WHOEVER HE >>EMPLOYS DOES THINGS HIS WAY.
  • 24:36 BUT, THE SADDEST PART IS CALLING >>JESUS A PALESTINIAN.

  • 25:02 AND THE PALESTINIANS ARE AROUND IT
