DEMAND the Third Temple!

The loss of our Holy Temple is the root of all of the problems of the Jewish people in today's world.... We give lip service every day to its restoration, but do we really want the Temple badly enough, with all our hearts, souls and with the very fiber of our being??? I don't think so! If we really wanted it, DEMANDED it, we Jews - no matter where we are in the world - would be out in the streets every day and every night demonstrating, raging, demanding from the "leadership" here in Israel to rid the Mount of the vermin currently controlling it and to start building the foundations of the Third Temple immediately! The G-d of Israel, once He sees that we truly want the Third Temple with all of our being, will take over and do the rest.

Through G-d

Your message is good but should have emphasized that "with G-d behind us we can do anything that HE tells us to do. It is not about US it is all about HIM. THERE IS NOTHING BUT GOD!

Excellent Explanation

I was the one who thought others imagined themselves to be competent. This is the first time that I really got this. Thank You Mr. Harary. So my biggest challenge was recently, I gave others credit for helping me through it. That is not possible.
I wouldn't be where I am today if not for Hashem. And me doing all the tasks that had to to be completed in order to get
much better.
