An incredible 2,700 year-old Papyrus bearing the oldest known mention of Jerusalem in Hebrew. This fragile piece of Jewish history was plundered from a cave in the Judean desert and then recovered by the Israel Antiquities Authority. The full Hebrew text reads : “From the female servant of the King, from Naharata (near Jericho) two wineskins to Jerusalem.” This is from the time of the First Temple.
The UN has just passed two outrageous resolutions claiming that there is no link between the Temple Mount, the most sacred site in Judaism ( which they have now renamed Al Haram Al Sharif ) and the Jewish people.


Join us and demand the UN explicitly recognize Judaism’s history on the Temple Mount and Western Wall: here

“I’m not sure exactly when this hospital became more concerned with private donations, or saving our own asses, but just an FYI it used to be a place where job #1 was saving lives. I won’t be any part of this… I’m out.”

Icelanders will soon be able to publicly worship at a shrine to Thor, Odin and Frigg with construction starting this month on the island’s first major temple to the Norse gods since the Viking age.

Worship of the gods in Scandinavia gave way to Christianity around 1,000 years ago but a modern version of Norse paganism has been gaining popularity in Iceland.

“I don’t believe anyone believes in a one-eyed man who is riding about on a horse with eight feet,” said Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson, high priest of Ásatrúarfélagið, an association that promotes faith in the Norse gods.

“We see the stories as poetic metaphors and a manifestation of the forces of nature and human psychology.”

Membership in Ásatrúarfélagið has tripled in Iceland in the last decade to 2,400 members last year, out of a total population of 330,000, data from Statistics Iceland showed.

The temple will be circular and will be dug 4 metres (13ft) down into a hill overlooking the Icelandic capital Reykjavik, with a dome on top to let in the sunlight.

“The sun changes with the seasons so we are in a way having the sun paint the space for us,” Hilmarsson said.

The temple will host ceremonies such as weddings and funerals. The group will also confer names to children and initiate teenagers, similar to other religious communities.

Iceland’s neo-pagans still celebrate the ancient sacrificial ritual of Blot with music, reading, eating and drinking, but nowadays leave out the slaughter of animals.

You’ve changed so much since you first arrived on Air Temple Island. When you first came here, you were hotheaded and selfish. But you’ve matured into a thoughtful young woman who puts the needs of others before herself. The new Air Nation was a testament to that. You sacrificed everything to save them. You’re an inspiration to the world.
