The Temple mount wakf have built scaffolding over the Foundation Stone, which was part of the Holy of Holies in the Temple.
According to chairman Gershon Salomon, Wakf Muslim religious trust officials who are conducting renovations at the Temple Mount have built scaffolding over the Foundation Stone, which was part of the Holy of Holies in the Temple.
Jewish tradition holds that the Ark of the Covenant rested on this stone in the First and Second Temple Periods.
Salomon said that the workers carrying out renovations on the Dome of the Rock are using the stone as a workbench, resting buckets of building materials on it and causing damage to one of Judaism’s holiest relics.
“For years, they’ve been building and therefore destroying Jewish history [on the Temple Mount], and they did terrible things over the years,” said Salomon. “There is a feeling that the sovereignty of Israel and our laws are not honored there, there’s no stopping them… But this is the worst thing that they’ve done.”
The Wakf did not return multiple calls requesting comment.
The petition requests that the Dome of the Rock be completely closed to visitors, including Muslim worshipers, while Israeli authorities investigate any damage – a move that is highly unlikely. Salomon has been banned from the Temple Mount for over 20 years due to incitement.
On July 23, the Knesset Control Committee will discuss the aspects of the annual State Comptroller’s Report that dealt with the Temple Mount, including security and unsupervised building. These sections of the annual report are not available to the public.

God of the Bible do not take pleasure in those who believe that wood and stones are “holy items”.
After Jesus died on the cross, and shared his blood for our sins, the body of his followers are the Temple of the Holy Spirit on Earth.
Still I accept the Jewish claim to the Temple Mount. Simply because Islam is a foreign religion in Israel, who have deceived the sons of Ishmael to harm the sons and daughters of Isaac.
I told you that you would die in your sins; if you do not believe that I am the one I claim to be, you will indeed die in your sins.”
Jesus will come back to Jerusalem, and set up his throne on the Temple Mount. Than everyone will understand that He is the King of the Jews. He will not return to give the human race a second chance to be saved. The Messiah will come to judge the human race.
Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.”
The gravest sin a man can commit, is to not believe in the Son of God. Such a man has no life, and no future. If you do not search for the Messiah, or miss Him dearly, you will face stern judgment when He returns to Jerusalem. The Lion of Judah will roar.
