Poll Reveals Half of Israeli Public Wants to See the Temple Rebuilt

I just thought this interesting. Arutz Sheva reports:
Half the Israeli public wants the Holy Temple (Beit HaMikdash) to be rebuilt. This is the main finding of a poll commissioned by the Knesset Television Channel and carried out by the Panels Institute. 
The poll was taken in advance of this Tuesday’s national day of mourning, known as Tisha B’Av, on which the two Holy Temples in Jerusalem were destroyed, 2,000 and 2,500 years ago, respectively.
Forty nine percent said they want the rebuilding of the Holy Temple, while 23% said they do not. The remainder said they were unsure. 
The public is about evenly split on whether they believe it will happen, with a slight edge – 42% to 39% – to those who believe the Third Holy Temple will be rebuilt.

Of course, we know from Daniel 9 and from Jesus' words in Matthew 24 that there will indeed be a third temple during the tribulation period. This temple will be desecrated halfway through the tribulation by the false messiah, the Anti-Christ. So the interest of the Israel public in building a third temple is quite interesting indeed.
