Israel gets closer to Third Temple
In October 2012, a threshold was crossed

Muslims and Jews consider the Temple Mount a holy place. Muslims call it Haram al-Sharif, the Noble Sanctuary; Jews call it Har HaBait, Mount of the House. The Al-Aqsa and the Dome of the Rock mosques atop it are among the holiest places to Islam. In the past, the First and Second Jewish temples stood there. The Western Wall is nowadays the most visible leftover of the Second Temple. Quietly and slowly, Israel is planning the Third Temple, an event which may trigger an Armageddon-style war.
Little happened since then, until the beginning of October 2012, when belligerent declarations by settlers were accompanied by a survey conducted by the Joint Directorate of the Temple Movements. It disclosed that 17% of Israeli Jews, religious and secular alike want to see a Third Temple built. In a related topic, numbers increased from previously conducted polls; 43% of the secular public and 92% of the religious Jewish public want to pray in the Temple Mount. This averages to 52% of the Jewish public. A threshold has been crossed.
The abovementioned Joint Directorate of the Temple Movements includes many organizations and prominent professors from various universities. Organizations like the Friends of the Temple, the Movement for the Establishment of the Temple, and the Temple Institute are busy studying the different aspects involved in the construction of the Third Temple. The only item still unknown is the mysterious "red cow" ("parah aduma" in Hebrew); obliquely hinting at the importance of this issue is the fact that the most popular chocolate bar in Israel is named "red cow." This is an amusing point; less humorous is the Mobile Altar developed by the Temple Institute in order to allow its fast deployment into the Temple Mount area when the time comes. They plan to offer sacrifices as fast as the mosques are removed.
Israel is not alone in this. Christian-Zionism is a popular cult in the USA. It claims that the return of the Jews to the Holy Land, and the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, is in accordance with Biblical prophecy and a prerequisite for the Second Coming of Jesus. This contradicts the New Testament. With such a background, they make the perfect ally for warmongering Zionists. On March 18, 2012, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed John Hagee—a Christian-Zionist leader—and a large group of American Christians United for Israel (CUFI) in Jerusalem. Among the heresies mentioned there, Netanyahu was compared to Moses, King David, and the Messiah. Both sides showed matchless faithfulness to each other, while candidly ignoring God. Israel and Hagee are consciously building a scenario that closely resembles the descriptions of the Battle of Armageddon in the Book of Revelations, where a false Messiah is recognized by a false clergy man, both in the service of Satan (see Armageddon's Alliance for more details).
At the beginning of October 2012, a threshold was crossed and a hyena became a monster. Over half the Jews want to pray in the Temple Mount; several Jewish organizations announced in parallel that everything is ready. This includes a fast deployable altar and the garments of the "HaCohen HaGadol" ("The High Priest"). Israel just got one step closer to the Third Temple; the world got one step closer to World War III.
