Hundreds of public buses traveling the streets of Jerusalem this Passover are bearing an advertisement calling for the immediate construction of the Third Temple top the contested Temple Mount.
Paid for by Our Land of Israel (also known as SOS-Israel), the ad depicts a rebuilt Jewish temple on the Temple Mount in place of the two mosques that now dominate the compound. Below the image are the words, "May the Temple be built swiftly in our days," taken from the daily Jewish prayer book.
SOS-Israel officials said they hope the campaign reminds many Israelis that rebuilding the temple has been the desire of the Jewish people for millennia, and that it is time for Israel to move forward in fulfilling that desire irrespective of international sensitivities.
