Temple Mount Overlook and Menorah
Middle East

The overlook of the Western Wall and Temple Mount (Haram al-Sharif) in the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem on R. Yehuda Halevi lane, has a nice little part, and a great view of the Western Wall and the Temple Mount. The Temple Mount Institute, which agitates for the destruction of the Muslim Dome of the Rock and the contraction of the Third Jewish Temple in its place has built a full scale model of the ancient temple Menorah which they plan to install in the new temple. It is on display in this plaza.

More About Middle East

Modern civilization began right here in the Tigris-Euphrates river valley. Also known as the Fertile Crescent or Mesopotamia, this is the place where, six thousand years ago, agriculture, writing and mathematics were brought into widespread use.The term "Middle East" comes from the British navy, which used it to describe the countries on the trade route from Europe to India and China. Everything from Afghanistan to Morocco may possibly be classified as "middle eastern", depending on whom you ask -- and when.Only a partial list of past Empires in the middle eastern territory includes Sumeria, Babylonia, Persia, the Ottoman Empire and the Roman Empire!When northern Europe was still lurking about in slimy cold stone castles playing chess, the Middle East was enjoying the flowers of poetry, luxurious craftsmanship, music and literature. In fact, the Renaissance in Europe was partly inspired by stories brought back from the middle east by travelers along the trade route.Strategic location, religious history and the world's largest supply of crude oil have kept the Middle East at the center of world activity for centuries. The saga continues.Text by Steve Smith.
