In the late 1920s, a Jewish farmer discovers a pit/cave as he is plowing his field in Israel. He is startled, but manages to identify the golden items as the holy vessels as used in the First Temple of Solomon. He draws a makeshift map and travels to New York with all the information on his findings. There he tracks down a certain Rabbi Herman (from the famous book: ALL FOR THE BOSS) and asks him what to do with his new secret. The rabbi cross-examines the farmer in order to verify the story, then sends his son (from the Mir Talmudic Yeshivah in Poland) over to a great Jewish sage living in Radin with a confidential letter and map, asking his coveted opinion on what to do next. The sage firstly confirms the site and states that the time has not yet arrived to reveal these Temple items, and in fact, all parties will forget the whole thing until many years later, on the day that this Israeli farmer dies.
The fascinating story continues. While studying in Lakewood, New Jersey, Herman’s son suddenly remembers the whole episode in Poland, including the map, and passes everything on to another prestigious member of his family. One thing led to another, and believe it or not, there are those living in Israel today that know approximately where this underground cave lies, the very same one that is part of this authentic story!
Too good to be true? Not at all.
When the First Temple was destroyed by the biblical King Nebuchadnezzar in 586 BCE, it’s a known fact that he stole many of the Temple treasures and brought them back to Babylonia. However, there were some that were secreted away before he could get his hands on them and buried outside of Jerusalem for the specific purpose (in order) to be found over 2000 years later, as a preparation for the coming of the Jewish Third Temple. It seems that that time is finally arriving, and in our days too.
In fact, you and I are living in a truly unique time in history, specifically Jewish history, whether from a religious, political, or even cultural standpoint. With the relatively new threat of a nuclear IRAN, many Jews are now terribly divided as to where their allegiance should be cast. The pathetic nuclear Treaty with the mullahs discredits the White House and its Middle Eastern allies because it’s just a matter of time before their contract is breached by the other side (since there’s nothing in it for the Western countries to breach). As sanctions can no longer be “snapped back,” one of the P5+1 countries will most likely end up with some form of military strike against Iran (if not Israel doing the dirty work itself). Like Winston Churchill so appropriately said back in September 1938 re: the Munich Settlement:
“You were given the choice between war and dishonor. You chose dishonor, and you will have war.”
For Americans, it has already erupted into much more than a partisan issue. For us, it’s now a full-fledged internal war between AIPAC, which takes direction from the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office, and JSTREET, which has been hired (for all intents and purposes) by the Obama Administration.
Let’s keep things in context though, shall we? All this is just the calm before the storm. While all the hullabaloo is going on in Congress vis-à-vis this Treaty, in the backrooms behind the scenes, the PA, France and New Zealand (in cooperation with President Obama) are busy drafting a UN Resolution that is designed to force Israel to withdraw back to the 1967 borders some time by the end of next year. The idea is ostensibly to divide Jerusalem so that the Palestinians will have their capital along with cutting out other parts of Israel, places where only fellow Arabs will be able to trod (as stated outright by PA President Abbas). After Congress votes and the Iranian dust settles, the mainstream media will no doubt focus on swaying public opinion in support of the new UN resolution. Not sure though if the Israeli coalition government will be able to stand up to this latest UN charade, since there is zero chance of the US vetoing the resolution. Certainly, the Right, and even those more in the Center here in Israel will no longer be suckered into a Gush Katif-like deal, and will fight tooth and nail.
Having said that, what can be the antidote in securing Israel’s lofty future?
An undeniable truth needs to be revealed. And the only real antidote to all these existential threats that surround us today lies not necessarily in military might, but rather in revealing the truth, because the truth can be the best weapon. Certainly where the media is concerned. Discovering the holy Temple vessels that are in that cave in the above-mentioned story will do just that. It will give Israel the strength and moral fortitude to connect back with her ancient roots, and will inspire those in power to respond in kind to the UN threat by drawing its own borders, i.e., the biblical borders of Israel that can be properly protected. This includes the fight to keep a unified Jerusalem alive for the foreseeable future. And when these Temple items are indeed found in Jewish hands, all the nations will know that the building of another everlasting edifice is on its way in order to house them, and in our very days. A Temple not only for the Jews, but for all peoples. This, of course, will be good of ALL Israeli citizens, no matter what the background or religion.
Professor Gabriel Barkay (who appears in my recent book: The A.R.K. Report) has said time and time again that finding these Temple treasures will put to rest once and for all (what I call) Temple Denial Syndrome, or TDS, which was originally started by Yasser Arafat in his conversations with President Clinton at Camp David in 2000. Denying the existence of any historical Jewish structure on the Temple Mount was, and is, an integral part of the PA’s media machine, which is still running full out today. The following was his press statement at the time:
“They found not a single stone proving that the Temple of Solomon was there, because historically the Temple was not in Palestine (at all). They found only remnants of a shrine of the Roman Herod.”
Why do we give in to believing the Arab propaganda machine? Not only is it an assault on the truth, but an assault on common sense! Now, right now, it may be possible to prove him wrong once and for all. We’re that close to finding the real deal, and it’s just outside our (proverbial) front door.
It’s that close…
