True Temple Mount discovered !Posted: August 1, 2016
In Jerusalem there was a section nearby the Wailing Wall but outside the walls of the city and called the ‘City of David’ where Hezekiah’s tunnel and the Gihon spring are located. It turns out that this is the true location of ‘Zion’ where the temple was actually located.
The implications of this discovery are enormous.
The Dome of the Rock and Al’Aksa mosque are located at Fort Antonio, headquarters for the Roman 10th Legion, and therefore the place has no religious significance whatsoever. There is no need to damage these buildings or trigger a holy war with the Moslems.
In fact, construction of the new Jewish temple can commence immediately at the location because it is all under full Israeli control.
The neighbourhood “Silwa” is all land that Arab rioters stole in the 1930’s from Yeminite Jews who were the first modern re-settlers to found the area in 1882 and called it “Shiloah”.
Update: The Gihon spring
is (“was” – see correction below) an intermittent spring that gushes water only at certain times.
This works by means of a natural siphon. A reservoir behind the spring slowly fills with water at a regular rate accumulating water from various surrounding sources. This also raises the level in the connection ‘tube’ up until it reaches a certain level (H2) and begins to flow out to the spring. This water flow out quickly sucks up the air in the tube chamber and a natural siphon forms which pulls all the water out of the entire reservoir very quickly all at once. Reportedly it gushes once a day in the fall, 3 to 5 times a day in the winter, and twice daily in the summer.
The extra gushing is apparently due to seasonal conditions and participation. These type of phenomenon is called a rhythmic karst spring and it is very rare. Reportedly there are only 32 such springs in existence, as follows: Bulgaria (two), Romania (two), Hungary (three), France (seven), Belgium (two), Germany (one), Switzerland (two), England (two), Czechoslovakia (one), USA (one), the Soviet Union (one), and Israel (one). More info here (pdf) and here (pdf).
Update2: Reports that the Gihon pulsated come from French archaeologist/priest L.H. Vincent’s 1911 exploration, but hydrologists today report that the pulsation is no longer is occurring. (This could be due to changes in water volume, or perhaps from the karst (limestone) erosion widening the rock openings.)
