Israel: The Ark of the Covenant

Israel: Ark of the Covenant, The

"Recommended. A small but devoted sect of Jews has been trying to get rid of the Islamic presence on Mount Moriah, rebuild the Temple, and re-institute the sacrificial system to achieve their goal. This struggle, which began between Isaac and Ishmael, is at the root of the drama in this production. Here we gain some theological insight into the struggle in the Middle East." -EMRO Review
This critically acclaimed documentary offers a rare insight into the extreme right-winged Jewish organization in Jerusalem that surrounds the Dome of the Rock, Islam's second holiest site. It reveals for the first time how a group of scholars from Harvard University concluded that the third world war would erupt on the Temple Mount due to a bombing on the Dome of the Rock. Author and historian Richard Andrews (Blood on the Mountain) searches for the Ark of the Covenant and travels to Israel to meet with Jewish sect members, Moslems, and Wendell Phillips (the real-life inspiration for the Indiana Jones' movies) to find out what this means to them. Produced by G.N. Communication, Ltd. 07/09DE JSCA 30 min.
