Celebrating On Tisha (the 9th of) Av

When I attended the Study Day about Har HaBayit, The Temple Mount, organized by National Union MK Dr. Michael Ben Ari, one of the things mentioned was that on Tisha B'Av there would be a festive inauguration of the building of the Temple Altar in Mitzpeh Yericho.

We didn't attend it but, there's a report here.

As we had been reminded by most of the speakers on Monday, the Temple Mount is still in our hands, regardless of the mistaken policies of the Israeli Governments during the past forty-two years.

It is up to us to build the Bait HaMikdash, The Holy Temple.

How do you know that we don't have one? In Biblical times, not everyone recognized the n'viim.

your claim that we may have a navi today is odd, to say the least. where is he, or she? why hasnt he told us about the temple, etc.? there are halakhic requirements for a prophet; who has met them today?

Maybe he's one of the speakers I heard last Monday. Anything's possible.
