While it seems that many people in Israel are determined to destroy what God is doing, there are many others who are working to glorify God and to build up the Land.
On Monday, 2 January 2006, the Temple Mount Faithful Movement will march to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. This is the eighth day of Hanukkah, 2 of Tevet 5766. The march will begin at 9:00 AM Jerusalem time. They have "decided like the Maccabees to again answer the call of the G-d of Israel and the Maccabees and the call of Mattityahu the Hashmonai: 'Those who are with G-d will come with me'. This is a godly and heroic struggle to liberate the Temple Mount to purify the holy hill of G-d from Arab Islamic desecration, to rebuild the Temple, and to consecrate it to the name of the G-d of Israel so that He can dwell there." Join in prayer with the Temple Mount Faithful during this period.
In addition, according to a report on Arutz Sheva, Youths of the Land of Israel Loyalists took advantage of their Hanukkah vacation to advance the cause of "The People of Israel in the Land of Israel according to the Torah of Israel," and are in the process of building outside the following 19 sites: Elazar, Bat Ayin, and Efrat in Gush Etzion; Adei Ad, Beit El, Ma'aleh Levonah, Psagot, and Kokhav Ya'akov in Binyamin (north of Jerusalem); Ma'aleh Hever south of Hebron; Mitzpeh Yericho and Kokhav HaShachar in the Jordan Valley; and Karnei Shomron, Eli, Peduel, Talmon, and Yitzhar in the Shomron. The most emotional pioneering effort took place in Kisufim, at the former entrance to Gaza. Some 30 youths from Gush Katif established a presence, but did not sleep there. They will arrive again Thursday together with youths from Kfar Darom and hotels. The plan is to turn it into a permanent meeting place for former Gush Katif residents, and, says at least one former resident, "a place from where we will be able to return home. If it took 19 years to return to Gush Etzion, hopefully it will take less time to come back to Gush Katif."
Praise be to G-d! He is building up His Land. He promised to return His people to the Land and now they settling it to His glory. While all the nations gather against her, Israel will stand above them all and God will be glorified in her midst! Am Yisrael Chai!
