At the end of the nineties, the Muslim Wakf - the Temple Mount religious council - built a third mosque under the Temple Mount with Israeli knowledge. The mosque was built where Solomon's horse stables once stood. Over 400 trucks of earth and rubble from below the Temple Mount were removed and dumped.
The initial 60 truck loads of rubble were dumped on an organic rubbish dump near Al Azariya and their contents were lost forever. Another almost 350 truckloads were dumped in the Kidron valley. This load of earth was taken by two archaeologists, Prof. Gabriel Barkai and Tzachi Davira. With the help of volunteers they started sifting the debris. Bucket for bucket, without any financial support from the governments of Israel, the team toiled unceasingly uncovering small pieces of truth from the Temple Mount rubble. They have since found thousands of coins, seals, potsherds and mosaic tiles from the time of the first and second temples.
These valuable archaeological discoveries are not only evidence of the Jewish past, but also clear evidence of the Bible's historical accuracy.
We have decided to work closely with Prof. Gabriel Barkai and Tzachi Davira supporting the "Temple Mount Sifting Project". With your support you can support both this project AND Israel Today - "two birds with one stone"!
This is how it works. For every donation to this project, you will receive a 3-month trial subscription which can be gifted to a recipient of your choice. Simply provide us with their name, address and email address when ordering and we will arrange their trial subscription from Jerusalem!
In this way you will support this deserving project and also bless your loved ones with our magazine - the tool to reveal the truth which the mainstream media leave out!
