Islamic Terrorism on Screen

Islamic Terrorism on Screen
September 10, 2005
Anyone who doubts that the Sept. 11, 2001 Islamic terrorist strike had long been foreshadowed need only check Hollywood's long roster of movies about such diabolical attacks.

Shortly after what was the worst attack on the U.S.A. in history, America's national security adviser proclaimed that no one could have imagined the scale of an act of war such as occurred on that black Tuesday. Actually, many in Hollywood—writers, directors, producers—could and did, often with penetrating motion pictures for the big and small screen.

When the Kohanim (priests) saw that Nebbucadnezzar was about to enter the Temple, they and the Levites moved the Holy Ark and various other utensils to the underground Temple. Therefore the Temple is still there in full Holiness.

The way to the underground Temple was thru tunnels designed by King Solomon the wisest of men. So they are impossible to find and impossible to go thru. So the Temple never really stopped. It has always been there and is still there now waiting for the Moshiach (Messiah).


Aish HaTorah's Tunnel Tour

In front of the Western Wall of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, an incredible labyrinth of tunnels, arches, and passageways remained untouched for centuries.
