Israeli Minister of Housing and Construction, Uri Ariel, of the "Jewish Home" fundamentalist party, a senior member of Israel's settler-led government, has called for the "rebuilding" of what he calls the "Third Temple", to replace al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, Al Ray Palestinian News Agency has reported.
“The first Temple was destroyed in 586 BCE, the second Temple in 70 CE, and ever since the Jews have been mourning its loss,” he claims. “Now that Israel has once again become a Jewish sovereign state, there have been occasional calls to rebuild the Temple,” he added.
