High Weirdness at Temple Mount

While chaos rules in Egypt, and the elements wreak havoc on OZ, something very wicked may have been going down at The Dome of the Rock...

UFO caught on Video from numerous angles around the city...

Many UFOs have been sighted recently. Widely interpreted as a UFO, a bright light hovering over The Dome of The Rock and Temple Mount of Jerusalem was filmed from multiple parts of the city around 1 a.m. local time on Saturday, Jan 29.

The Dome of The Rock, an iconic Islamic shrine, is built over a sacred stone where the Prophet Muhammed is believed to have ascended to heaven.

Onlookers watched as the glowing orb descended to the site, then hung pulsing above the spire for around 20 seconds, before suddenly shooting back high into the sky at a rapid speed, accompanied by a bright flash.

The videos are posted on YouTube and have generated plenty of buzz on the Internet, with comments divided as to whether the footage has been doctored.

But the fact that the incident was filmed from several different perspectives makes it hard to dismiss the ball of light as a hoax.

"If these are real, they are some of the most incredible videos ever shot," said Nick Pope, former UK Ministry of Defence UFO investigator, according to Fox News. "If they are not, then this is a very well-planned and coordinated hoax designed to eliminate elements of doubt."

"The way it shoots up into the sky suggests it is unmanned, because no living thing could survive those kinds of G-forces," Pope added.

4 Days prior this interesting event was taking place at the same location...

Huge electricity generators donated by the government of Jordan were brought into the Temple Mount Tuesday. A group led by Likud's Moshe Feiglin documented the entry of the generators into the Mount.

Sources in the Jerusalem Municipality's Supervision Department told the Temple Heritage Fund that the municipality had not given permission to bring in the generators and that they were informed of the matter by Avi Roif, Commander of the Old City Police. The municipality sources were said to be outraged at Roif for allowing the generators' entry despite his not not being authorized to do so.

It is not clear to what use the generators will be put. The Wakf has in the past conducted unauthorized digging and construction activity on the Mount, apparently in order to obliterate any archaeological vestiges of Jewish presence there. The heavy generators themselves might damage the holy site and they might be used to illuminate and provide energy for projects about which Israel has not been informed.

According to an urgent Temple Heritage Fund e-mail message, generators of this size are capable of supplying electricity to tens of thousands of homes. The Fund quoted municipality sources as surmising that the generators might be intended for use in the event that Muslims want to remain up on the Temple Mount for a long period of time. This could occur to prevent an imagined takeover by the Jews, with Muslims gaining PR points in the process.
"The Arabs may be planning a rebellion or a large-scale operation," the Fund's email added. However, it is also possible that the Wakf would like to use an alternate source of energy other than Israel's Electric company.
There has been tension for other reasons around the Temple Mount in the past few days after news was leaked that Israel had cleared out an ancient tunnel that led from where the Davidson Visitors' Center currently stands, next to the Kotel Plaza, and the City of David.
