According to the Bible (the Book of Daniel), the Temple in Jervsalem would be replaced by a disgusting thing untill the return of Our Lord and King Christ Jesus.
Daniel 11:30,31 “He (the anti-Christ) will go back (to Jervsalem) and hurl denunciations against the holy covenant and act effectively; and he will go back (recapture it) and will give attention to those leaving the holy covenant. 31 And with arms will he stand up, proceeding from him; and they will profane the sanctuary, the fortress, and remove the constant feature. (the Temple) And they will put in place of it, the disgusting thing that causes desolation. (the Dome of the rock)."
The Dome of the Rock is this pagan shrine, the disgusting thing that causes desolation, and that is right now standing in a holy place: located on the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jervsalem! Jervsalem would be occupied by the pagan nations (arabs/saracens), but the Temple would be rebuild in the stream of time, accoring to Daniel. So far the prophecy has come true, but wait there is more:
Daniel 12:11,12 “And from the time that the constant feature (the temple) has been removed and the disgusting thing that causes desolation has been put in place, there will be 1,290 days. “Happy is the one who keeps in expectation and who arrives at the 1,335 days (of years)!
The dome has been initially completed in 691 AD, becoming one of the oldest works of Izlamic architectures.(*) So if Daniel says to add 1335 years; 691 (the year the disgusting thing was build) +1335 (years of expectation) we come to 2026 AD! So in less the 12 years the temple will be rebuild! This rebuilding of the temple might or might not happen by human hands! But rebuild she will be, and no one will be able to stop the building of it! right on time will it be, to greet her King of Kings!
When the temple will be completed, it will herald in, the return of Jesvs Christ, the Messiah, the only begotten Son of God going into the temple by the east gate (the closed gate) and this will mark the end of all pagan religion on earth.

(*) the other oldest izlamitic building is the ka'ba build around the year 500 AD by arabian tribes, and was dedicated to a multiple of gods. (This kabah stone building could never have been build by Abraham, as izlamites may claim, since Abraham never went to arabia. Abraham traveled from Ur to the land of Cana·an, where he lived and died. The Holy Bible is very clear on Abrahams journeys all of them are reported on and one long difficult journey throught a dessert, to arabia is not mention in there? How strange, because the Holy Bible even mentions his journey as corps from Egypt back to the land of Cana·an!)
The book of mohamad is not even clear on the subject. supossedly allah build the kaba of meka, of was it Adam or was it Abraham? and was it build from 7 different mountains or only from one mountain as another account says?! mohammad could not keep his story straight! [kabah, is idol worship!] [me'ka cursed by God]
the book of mohamed 2:125
Not to mention, where was Isaac and Sara (Abrahams wife), when Abraham went building the idol with ishmael?
During the time of king David there was a tribe called philisteens, but they died out and are in no way related to the modren day gazans.
Palestine was a roman name for the region, but not for the people! During the roman period people living there were still jews!
During the british rule, there was again a region called palestine, but again it was populated with jews AND other tribal groups.
Having said this much in favor of a jewish state, we have however also to look at the otherside of the coin.
The now-a-days called gaza strip, never was part of either king Davids kingdom, nor of the second kingdom. And is currently inhabited by non-jews. Therefore we the Templar Kingdom do see Gaza as a independant sovereign nation. But we do not recognize west-bank as part of this "Gaza nation".
see below map as the sovereign state recognized by us.
