Uzi Baram has said that the current government’s religious right-wing is
relying on the role of US President Donald Trump to help destroy the Dome of
the Rock Mosque. The religious right believes that the mosque’s presence is
hindering the fulfilment of Jewish salvation represented by the construction of
the Third Temple.
In an article published by Haaretz,
Baram said that the Jewish religious references and their political representatives
in the Knesset and government believe that Trump will help in fulfilling Torah
prophecies and fulfil the ideological religious visions of Gush Emunim, the
far-right movement responsible for the settlement project in the occupied West
Bank. Although it no longer exists formally, the movement’s ideology is still
influential in Israel.
“Rabbis believe that God sent
Trump to help rebuild Israel in order for it to be in accordance with God’s
instructions,” added Baram.
