Visiting Har HaBayit

Rabbi Yitzchok Brand has created a video to encourage ultra-orthodox visits to Har HaBayit (the Temple Mount). This is most unusual as the vast majority of the black-hat ultra-orthodox rabbis prohibit it.

(Hebrew, 7 minutes)

(From the Charedim Hebrew web site)

Rabbi Brand calls ultra-orthodox rabbinic prohibitions from going up on Har HaBayit to be HYPOCRITICAL. More at Life in Israel.

I really do not see the reason for going on Har Habayit. We are all tameh and it accomplishes nothing except anger and resentment...

We had our chance in 67 to stop anyone from ever going up and we blew it.

Now we need the Beis Hamikdash to just come down and flatten the mosque
with hopefully nobody in it.

regarding this video:
it is misleading. okay, so they got a frum rav to go up, so what?
the guy picks a leaf off a tree. what is that supposed to be? it makes us look bad. as reb gutman stated and quoted in the first piece, the majority opinion is to not go up. i don't see why posting this video is helping anything, except creating tension and maybe confusion.
those who advocate going up are not only creating halachic issues but also creating more tension with our enemies, inciting them to more violence. this we need?
i think there should be a video that counters this video to show the emes!!!
please post it, or create it.

I really do not see the reason for making aliyah. We are fine in the USA and it accomplishes nothing except anger and resentment...

Josh - you missed the point entirely...

We have a chiyuv to live in Eretz Yisroel, keep the land in Jewish hands and settle it entirely no matter what it takes or who gets offended...

Such bitter responses...shame!

B"H There was a brave Rav that brings the attention of the "schorim' focused on the Har HaBayit; like everyone should be focused on this magnificent unifying force in the world. I say that as a prediction.
