As reported on front page of Jerusalem Post (Jan. 8, 1996), GSS (Israeli Secret Police) sought my deportation for ALLEGED involvement in a plot to "damage mosques." This travesty of justice occurred during witch-hunt that followed Prime Minister Rabin's assassination.
The Leftists were exploiting death of Rabin to squash their legal opposition. Such Stalinist tactics were condemned by former Russian refuseniks and Prisoners of Zion. Thankfully, regime of Shimon Peres was toppled with election of Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu.
As a Christian-American member of Temple Mount Faithful movement, I had been privileged to participate in their legal demonstrations during my 10-month stay in Jerusalem awaiting dual citizenship. Israeli television often showed me with my Jewish friends carrying Israeli flags throughout Old City. I have also been published in Jerusalem Post, Traveller and other publications about burning issue of TEMPLE MOUNT. The Temple Mount suffers under a MILITANT MUSLIM OCCUPATION that FORBIDS CHRISTIANS AND JEWS FROM PRAYING OR READING THE BIBLE there.
This despite fact that both Biblical Temples stood there, and it is location where Jesus and His disciples taught and prayed. Israel has a law against such violent religious discrimination, but they're afraid or unwilling to enforce it. Such shameful appeasement rewards Muslim aggressors and punishes innocent!
The Temple Mount Faithful demands an end to this injustice. Meanwhile, Muslim terrorists continue to destroy rich archaeological evidence upon Temple Mount that proves Jerusalem is Jewish! The world condemned Muslim Taliban for blowing up a Buddhist idol, yet has remained deathly silent while Judaism's holiest site is desecrated!
In my book, Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall, I've called for Israeli government to exercise its Biblical responsibility to BUILD THE TEMPLE. I wrote that book in United States before any of this trouble. It clearly explains that I'm not calling for any individual to remove mosques, but rather expecting GOVERNMENT to fulfill their historic obligations (if an "act of God" doesn't solve problem first).
