Dome of the Rock & Palm

    Newer Older

    The Dome of the Rock sits at the Temple Mount site - Mount Moriah, over the rock where Abraham prepared to sacrifice his son Isaac and where Solomon built the Jewish First Temple 1000 years before Christ. The Dome was built between 685 and 691 and is Islam's third most holiest place after Mecca and Medina.

    A Cúpula da Rocha está sobre o Monte do Templo - Monte Moriah, sobre a pedra onde Abraão preparou seu filho Isaac para o sacrifício e onde o rei Salomão construiu o primeiro templo, 1000 anos antes de Cristo. A Cúpula foi construída entre 685 e 691, sendo o terceiro lugar mais sagrado para os muçulmanos, depois de Meca e Medina

      Just to draw your attention that the "Dome of the Rock" is not in Israel but in Palestine.

      For your information, according to international law as well as ALL United Nations resolutions, Israel occupation is illegal.

      To be very objective, not only the Israeli occupation is illegal but, on top of that, it is the most immoral, racist, criminal, barbaric, terrorist occupation of all times!

      And they pretend being gifted that land by GOD!
      Which GOD?
      Is he the same GOD that ordered Jesus Christ & the Virgin Mary to stop being Jews and preach a new religion, "CHRISTIANITY"!

      Thanks everybody for the visit, comments, faves and invites!
      - Caravaggio Designer: minha passada foi super rápida, e não visitei mesquitas lá, inclusive nessa da foto a entrada é proibida aos que não são muçulmanos, assim que não pude ver por dentro.
