Hashem is reminding us to lament for our Holy Temple during these Three Weeks that commemorate its destruction.
This morning, terrorists from the Israeli Arab town of Um el Faham, descended from the holy Temple Mount in Jerusalem toward the Gate of Lions in the Old City and fired toward Israeli policemen, murdering two of them and wounding a third.
The two slain policemen are Ha'il Satawi, 30, from Maghar, a father of a newborn baby, and Kamil Shnaan, 22, from Hurfeish. May Hashem avenge their martyred blood.
The three terrorists were Muhammad Ahmad Muhammad Jabarin, 29, Muhammad Hamed Abed al-Atif Jabarin, 19, and Muhammad Ahmad Mafdel Jabarin, 19 from Um el Fahm. Um el Fahm is the seat of the Northern Branch of Islam, who together with Hamas are the snakepit-breeding grounds of terrorism. These two organizations, together with the cursed Waqf that controls the Temple Mount and the so-called "peace partner" (sic) Palestinian Authority, incite against Jews and Israel day and night.
Most contemptible is that the terrorists used the Temple-Mount mosques as a takeoff point for their attack. Right after the attack, they retreated back to Temple Mount, attempting to take refuge in the mosques. This is characteristic of what so many people call "The Religion of Peace"; Islam uses the same tactic in Gaza. Mosques are used as staging grounds for terror and launching pads for missiles as well refuges for terrorists.
Israeli police this morning had no choice but to chase the three terrorists and killed them on the Temple Mount, as you can see in the clip below.
May Hashem soon uproot the impurity from the Temple Mount and rebuild our Holy Temple, speedily and in our days, amen!
