Chabad Temple seminar rankles Islamists

July 30, 2008 (Jerusalem Post) — A brief course offered by the Chabad Hassidim about the Temple endangers the Aksa Mosque, Islamic Movement spokesman Zahi Nujidat said Tuesday. The three-part seminar, which is being held this week and next week at some 200 Chabad Houses throughout the country, comes less than two weeks before Tisha Be’av, which marks the destruction of the Temple.

The timing on this is likely not coincidental. Tisha B’av is on August 10th and represents a most solemn, mournful day in Jewish history. Faithful Jews, however, look forward to God’s promise to turn Israel’s weeping into joy. This promise may soon be fulfilled! — PID
