Temple Mount

Because of recent violence between Israelis and Palestinians in Jerusalem, the nations of Israel and Jordan have agree to put surveillance cameras on the Temple Mount. In an unusual situation, it is the Jordanian Wakf who is responsible for the al-Aksa Mosque and other muslim holy sites in Jerusalem–not the Palestinian Authority.

Some choice quotes:

“Prime Minister Netanyahu has agreed to what I think is an excellent suggestion by King Abdullah to provide 24-hour video coverage of all sites on the Temple Mount / Haram al-Sharif,” Kerry said.

“This will provide comprehensive visibility and transparency, and that could really be a game changer in discouraging anybody from disturbing the sanctity of this holy site,” Kerry said.

This also seems to be another piece of the End Times puzzle that is moving into place. If Revelation 11 is to come to pass, there must be a way for verse 9 to happen. This prophetic chapter concerns two witnesses who will prophesy in Jerusalem:

7 Now when they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up from the Abyss will attack them, and overpower and kill them. 8 Their bodies will lie in the public square of the great city–which is figuratively called Sodom and Egypt–where also their Lord was crucified. 9 For three and a half days some from every people, tribe, language and nation will gaze on their bodies and refuse them burial. 10 The inhabitants of the earth will gloat over them and will celebrate by sending each other gifts, because these two prophets had tormented those who live on the earth.

11 But after the three and a half days the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and terror struck those who saw them. 12 Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” And they went up to heaven in a cloud, while their enemies looked on.

Revelation 11:7-12 (NIV)

The plan struck between Israel and Jordan appears to include a requirement that the footage be streamed live over the Internet to guarantee transparency among the different stakeholders. So 24-hour video coverage of Jerusalem would enable this prophecy to literally come true.
