LEAD STORY There is a controversy in the Middle East over who controls the Temple Mount Read Jimmy’s report on today’s top story, and how this event relates to Bible prophecy.
DD: Well the rumors continue to circulate that when Prime Minister Netanyahu held a secret but not so secret meeting with Salman the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia in a Saudi town that during that time Netanyahu offered Saudi Arabia control over the Temple Mount. That would mean that Jordan would no longer have that role. As I mentioned a week or two ago when we were speaking the Jordanians and the Saudis are close allies. So its not as if they were offering it to Turkey.
Turkey wants that control and there’s no way that the Israelis would allow that with the Turkish leaders being so hostile but again Saudi Arabia has become really quite a close if quiet ally to Israel. They control the holy sites in Mecca and Medina so this would just be going along the same lines. The Jordanians are apparently protesting this. But Jimmy I think in the end I think they would accept it if it did happen. There are some in Israel though warning that the Saudi government could be overthrown. It’s definitely a target of Iran and if it did ever fall the hostile anti-Israel forces then you would have this conundrum of them having a piece of ground right in the center of Jerusalem. So we’ll see if it goes anywhere but there is continuing talk about it all over the place really.
