JD: David this last week Prime Minister Netanyahu was to have flown into the United Arab Emirates but that flight was cut off because he had to fly over the air space of Jordan and Jordan denied that opportunity. Get into the details behind why that happened.
DD: This was the fourth time, on Thursday he was to fly down there for several days in the end it was the Jordanians that prevented it. The Jordanian Crown Prince Hussein Bin Abdullah he was on his way to the Temple Mount and a leader of the Jordanian Monarchy has not visited there in many many years so this was going to be a historic visit. He showed up at the border crossing over the Jordan River with a huge contingent of armed men that were to accompany him. So the Israelis were offended by that and said no we’re not going to let all of these people in we’ll let in the original number only. So the Crown Prince became insulted and said no I want all of these people and the Israeli’s saw this as a show of force that Jordan wanted to reassert its control over the Temple Mount so he was turned back.
This is the worst crisis between Joran and Israel in many years Jimmy and it just shows how tenuous those relations are and how important still the Temple Mount is. And of course the Jordanians were earlier insulted at President Trump’s suggestion that possibly the Saudis should now be given a role in running the Temple Mount from the Muslims side. King Abdullah’s relatives, his ancestors were the custodians of the Saudi holy sites as well in Jerusalem and they lost the most important places in Islam, they lost that control and they don’t want to lose control over the Temple Mount so this is really yet again another dispute over that holy piece of ground that is the most contested place in the world.
JD: David Dolan with the details behind how the nation of Jordan is fighting to keep control of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
Since 1948 the nation of Jordan has had custodial responsibility of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, that is still the case today. However Israel has sovereignty over this site the most sacred piece of real estate to the Jewish people. There has been and will continue to be a conflict over this very controversial location, that’s Zechariah 12:2. God promised the Jews this site forever, that’s II Samuel 7:28 & 29 which is the Davidic Covenant a Covenant that cannot be broken, an eternal Covenant.
