Today is Yom Yerusalayim, Jerusalem Day

Celebrating the liberation of the City of Jerusalem and its unification in 1967 as the capitol of Israel.

The soldiers pictured above infront of the Western Wall of the Temple shed blood for that liberation..something I hope Israeli Prime Minister Olmert has occasion to remember before he gives any part of the City back to Israel's sworn enemies.

In The Book of Isaiah, the prophecy is made that the Beit Hamikdosh, the Holy Temple, will be rebuilt on the Temple Mount for the third time when G-d's Kingdom is established over the earth and that men will come from the four corners of the world to worship and to pray...that they shall `beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks' and that peace and brotherhood will reign over the world.

As the old Sabbath prayer says, may it come soon, and in our time.
