bais-hamikdoshHalf the Israeli public wants the Bais Hamikdosh to be rebuilt. This is the main finding of a poll commissioned by the Knesset Television Channel and carried out by the Panels Institute.  The poll was taken in advance of  Tisha B’Av.

Forty nine percent said they want the rebuilding of the Bais Hamikdosh, while 23% said they do not. The remainder said they were unsure.

The public is about evenly split on whether they believe it will happen, with a slight edge – 42% to 39% – to those who believe the Third Bais Hamikdosh will be rebuilt.

Should the State of Israel take active steps towards the reconstruction? Forty-eight percent said no, while 27% said yes.

The complete results of the poll will be broadcast on Channel 99, the Knesset channel, tonight.

  1. Why don’t you try that poll,here in America? I’m afraid the numbers are going to be a lot worse r”l! When people are so invested in Olam Hazeh with their fancy homes, cars, vacations etc… do you really think they want the Bais Hamikdash to come around and mess things up??? No wonder we are still in Galus.

  2. I see no reason why Hashem should give us back the ??? ?????. Hashem goes to one person sitting in this corner, he has beautiful children he already bought his house he has a car, he’s so happy hes not grieving over my ??? ????? thats 1 less person for my ??? ?????. The next person sitting at this corner has beautiful children he loves to learn & has a rich Father-in-law supporting him he’s so happy hes not grieving over my ??? ????? thats 1 less person for my ??? ?????. what is Hashem saying to his Malachim? just look at my children down there look how happy they are i gave them everything cars, planes, computers, Electricity & phones Etc… forget if they are Makir Tov (Grateful) for everything i give them that is not today’s lesson, Let me leave my ??? ????? up in heaven with me when my children cry for it i will give it back to them, but right now look how happy they are. A perfect Mashal would be if a Principal in a Cheder took away a ball from a boy, because he was hitting people with it. If he went to the Principal & said i’m sorry i just want to have fun i won’t hit anyone with it. I give you my word he will give him his ball back. Do you think the Principal needs it? He already has a whole basket sitting in his office. Hashem is waiting for Klal Yisroel to wake up & do Teshuva, the gates of teshuva are never closed, the worst king of Klal Yisroel did teshuva at the end of their lives, Achav & Menashe look at them, after 30 years of avoda zora Menashe cried out all the way from his heart for teshuva from Hashem & Hashem accepted it WHY? Because he really meant it. Hashem is waiting for Klal Yisroel to do Teshuva. Hashem is waiting for the day to put his presence back in this world & bring us back the Bais Hamikdosh but we just don’t seem to be ready. Hashem loves us from a father to a son. If we really cried out for the Bais Hamikdosh from our heart with truth & show that we are missing it, then we wouldn’t still be in Golus today.

  3. Mashiach Agent: your mamash a Reb Levi MeBerdichev! what about all those people who are betzar, sll those people with fancy houses have a peckel too!

  4. TO CRAZY:
    I”m sorry to tell you the truth but in the world today (especially in America) we are not yearning for the Bais Hamikdosh, & mourning over it etc… in order for someone to get something (ex. a baby, a shidduch, a livlihood etc…) he needs to yearn for it & cry out to Hashem.
    All of us have heard, read & seen tons of true stories of people who had their first child at 42 or had a sick child that the doctor said i’m very sorry but your daughter has only 3 hours to live & then he comes back 2 hours later & says its really a miracle but your child is beginning to recover. Why is it that they finally had a child & the child recovered? Its a Pasuk we say 3 times a day in Davening. Hashem is close to all who call to him, to all who call out truthfully. (Tehillim 145)Because they cried out from their heart, they really meant what they were saying when they davened to H-shem to have a baby or for his daughter to recover etc…. theres a reason we call Hashem, Avinu She’bashamayim (our father in heaven) Hashem loves us from a father to a son. If we really cried out for the Bais Hamikdosh from our heart with truth & show that we are missing it, then we wouldn’t still be in Golus today.
    I EVEN HEARD 2 YESHIVA PEOPLE ASKING THEIR RAV, ARE WE ACTUALLY GOING TO HAVE TO GIVE UP OUR HOUSE & CAR WHEN MASHIACH COMES? YOU CAN TRUST ME HOW SHOCKED I WAS WHEN I HEARD THEM SAYING THIS. HOW MUCH LOWER CAN KLAL YISROEL SINK IN KEDUSHA ETC…?
