IDF General Ashkenazi at Arch of Titus in Rome Today

The General of Staff for the Israeli Defense Forces, Lt. Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi, gave a short speech at the Arch of Titus in Rome this evening (today, Iowa time), on the eve of Tisha B’av, the day marking the destruction of the First and Second Jewish Temples in Jerusalem by Babylon in 586 BC and by Rome in 70 AD.

The Arch of Titus was built in 70 AD with engravings of the Temple treasures being taken from Jerusalem into Rome. Ezekiel 37 and the vision of the dry bones coming back to life is reaching full swing.

The General says in the above video clip,
"It is touching to come here as the head of the Israel Defense Forces and to say here . . . "Am Yisrael Hai" ("The Nation of Israel is Alive.")
Public support from Israel for the rebuilding of the Temple is growing. See article here
