זבחים

ha ha'Bayit

What more is there to say? Rightwing Israeli political nutters in the ruling coalition getting hot and revved up to rebuild the Third Temple and reboot animal sacrifice. Here’s the piece by Yossi Verter about the expanding influence of Temple Mount craziness in the Likud and Jewish Home parties, including government ministers and deputy ministers. Ideas and figures once considered marginal on the Israeli political and cultural and religious scene begin to grab a place in the center.  Despite intentions and declarations to the contrary by the Prime Minister, the status quo begins to wobble. God help us all.
