Is It Enough That Israel Governs Jerusalem?

This is also posted on Israel Blogger.

I've recently heard that some rabbis are claiming that we no longer have to mourn the destruction of Jerusalem, because Israel now holds it. This is totally outrageous and shows a very superficial comprehension of what Jerusalem is to the Jewish People.

Jerusalem is not just a bit of real estate, the same way that the Tanach, Jewish Bible isn't a history book. The Tanach is a book of theology, and Jerusalem is Holy and meant to be the location of the Beit Hamikdash, Holy Temple.

Until the Jewish Israeli Government takes full sovereignty over Har Habayit, the Temple Mount and begins building the Third Temple for traditional Jewish Worship, we must mourn the destruction of our ancient Jewish Kingdom and Temple.

According to the attitude of those rabbis, they may as well read the Torah in synagogue from a paper book and not from the special parchment.

Contrary to popular belief, the Jewish Temple
in Jerusalem was much more than a place where
sacrifices were offered.

The Jewish Temple in Jerusalem was also the
correct meeting place of the Jewish Supreme Court
[Sanhedrin] and the place where genuine
prophecy was most likely to occur. It was also the
place where prayers were most likely to be heard.

The Jewish Temple in Jerusalem was also a place
where the wealthy donated to charity anonymously,
while the poor took from charity anonymously.
According to ancient Jewish Law and tradition,
this doubly-anonymous charity is the most
correct and praiseworthy kind of charity.

The Biblical Book of Jeremiah,
end of chapter 17, teaches:

If the Jewish people observe Shabbat
then Jerusalem will be ruled by Jews forever
(verses 24 to 25).

But if Jews DO NOT observe Shabbat,
then Jerusalem will burn with fire
(verse 27, last verse of chapter).

These rabbis are what you call 'so-called rabbis', in other words, Erev Rav rabbis as was foretold by our holy Sages. Yerushalayim is the heart and soul of Israel (H's earthly abode) and the Jewish people. In fact, it is said that after Moshiach comes all of Eretz Yisrael will have the privilege of being called Yerushalayim because of its kedusha and the holy city itself will be its Center with our holy Beit HaMikdash on Har Habayit. Once the world recognizes that there is only the One true G-D, Hashem, then all peoples of the world will be known as the Bnai Noach so the world will have the kedusha of Eretz Yistrael.

Furthermore, tractate Avot, chapter 5,
paragraph 5, teaches that there were ten (10)
miracles that happened regularly in the Temple.
