Hachrazah 5770 Tishrei 24
Informal translation from Hebrew of the 24 Tishrei, 5770 (12 October 2009) statement:
Sanhedrin message about Shimon Peres' visit to HaRav HaGaon Yosef Shalom Elyashiv shlit"a
Visiting to the Temple Mount, the House of the Creator of the World, by the ascension of Jews to the Mount for the purpose of prayer and thanks, is done by the instruction and agreement of many important rabbis. Visits to the Mount are done for the sake of service and prayer in the place where prayer is heard the most, and exposes the deceit of the “Peace Process”. Extremist Islam objects to the prayer of the Special Nation on the Mount and refuses to recognize the uniqueness of Israel in spite of their book’s command on the matter. From this, extremist Islam works to destroy and eliminate any trace of the first and second Temples. That is the “peace” process of extremist Islam.
The President of the State’s words against digging under holy places aroused much surprise, after silent encouragement and restraint to the Islamic Movement (which flourishes under Israeli rule), for its aggressive actions to shattering all historical memory of the Temple amidst continual vandalism for more than ten years.
To our delight, amongst the sewage dumped by the vandals from the Temple Mount, many finds have been discovered proving again and again the history of the nation of Israel on the Mount.
We call to the new head of UNSCO Irina Bokova to initiate and carry out organized and objective digs on all parts of the Temple Mount and even below the mosques to the necessary depth in order to clarify, for all to see, the place of the Temple and its facilities, and to shut the mouths of the liars and deniers of the Temple.
This clarification will contribute to bringing peace to the world.
President of the State, Shimon Peres’ behavior until now has brought an existential catastrophe on the nation of Israel, the region, and the entire world.
The neglect of the Temple Mount, and the exclusion of the foot of Israel from it is a great provocation against the Holy One, Blessed be He, and the nations of the world who expect from the nation of Israel to recognize the kindness that the Holy One, Blessed be He did with them and with the nations when he gave them the city of the Temple. The Divine Presence and the nations together hope with all of Israel for the returning of the order of service in the Temple of Israel in its place.
President Peres, and all those with him in his faithless plans, contribute to the removal of the Divine Presence from Israel, to the diminution of character and general destruction.
We call to all members of the Special Nation – religious, chareidi, secular, to go up to the Temple Mount to the permissible place according to the Torah of Israel and to pray to the Holy One, Blessed be He, for the salvation of Israel, and the rescue of Israel from the hands of the aggressors, and for the building of the Temple speedily, whose strengthening is the fruition of peace and truth for the whole world.
