the temple mount is mine part I
Jerusalem’s Temple Mount is one of the world’s bloodiest and most controversial sites, over which battles have been fought for thousands of years. Time Magazine called it “potentially the most volatile 35 acres on earth”. The site which David chose to be capital of the Jewish people, where Salomon constructed the Temple and Herod built the Second Temple, the place where Jesus spoke to his disciples, and where Mohammed rose to heaven, is the core of the Middle East conflict. THE TEMPLE MOUNT IS MINE reflects the present against a historic and religious background. The series grippingly visualizes the Temple Mount throughout history. The films create a vivid, visceral experience of holiness and hatred, faith and hope. THE TEMPLE MOUNT IS MINE unravels the secrets of the world’s most sacred place, investigating its history of inspiration and upheaval, while evaluating its potential as a flash-point for contemporary conflict – with far-ranging repercussions.
