“Once again, the Arabs are playing soccer on the Temple Mount where the Holy Temple used to stand.” 
– Divuach Rishoni News
– “Muslims do not give special sanctity to the Dome of the Rock, where the Temple stood. Dome of the Rock (Kubat a-Chakhra) is an ancient building built on a huge rock (probably the foundation stone) and was not used as a mosque until recent years when the place became a women’s mosque. The Al-Aqsa mosque, which appears to be in the Quran, is the holiest place [on this site] in their opinion and therefore the whole area is now called Al-Aqsa, not ‘Haram al-Sharif,’ as it was once called twenty years ago. The Second Intifada is also named after Al-Aqsa.”
– “Rabbi Akiva laughed when he saw that foxes entered and exited the Temple Mount and the Holy of Holies. To this, it is said, ‘and foxes will walk through it.’  Why did Rabbi Akiva laugh? Because he saw that in a thousand years it wouldn’t be foxes and animals but instead Arab terrorists who would walk through the Temple Mount and use it as a place for terror and incitement. Looking back today, it really is funny that foxes went into the Holy of Holies…”
0202 Editor’s notes:
 Since 1967, Jordan and Israel agreed that the Waqf, or the Islamic trust, would have control over matters inside Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, while Israel would control external security. Non-Muslims would be allowed onto the site during visiting hours, but would not be allowed to pray there. This agreement is what is referred to as the ‘status quo.’
 This quote originates in the Talmud and is most often used in reference to the great sorrow over the biblical destruction of the Second Temple.
