The Golden Menorah of the Temple
Middle East
We are standing in front of the solid gold menorah, which according to canonical sources, is produced in the exact same form as the menorah that stood in the ancient Jewish Temple, The Beit HaMikdash, in Jerusalem. The menorah was produced by the Temple Institute . which hopes to place it in the third temple. The Temple Mount, Har HaBayit in Hebrew, current hosts the Dome of the Rock and Al Aqsa Mosque, the third holiest site in Islam. The Western Wall is also visible in this panorama. Hopefully, we we all be able to coexist in peace!

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.
