Ben-Gvir’s Visit from an Arab Perspective

Why the diplomatic uproar about Israeli National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir’s visit to the Temple Mount? From the Arab perspective, Ben-Gvir’s visit is just the first step towards building the Third Temple and so the Arab nations are desperately trying to stop his visits. However, they do believe that the building of the Third Temple is almost inevitable as they believe that the Israelis are determined to build the Third Temple. Arab governments are doing what they can to diplomatically deter the Israeli government from implementing what they universally believe is the Israeli conspiracy to build the Third Temple. At the same time is there tremendous interest in normalization with Netanyahu’s Israel among Muslim nations despite these fatalistic conspiratorial beliefs. In other words, each nation puts their own interests first and in reality Arab nations are rather resigned to what they believe is the almost inevitable building of the Third Temple.
