I'm always sceptical about little green men and their flying machines. There's always one nutter/hoaxer claiming to have captured an UFO on a blurry film. This time, however, it's hard to dismiss because multiple people caught it at the same time.
Here's the original video, showing a bright dot descending and hovering over Jerusalem's Dome of the Rock, one of the holiest spots in the world, at the heart of the Jewish-Muslim conflict in Israel:
It's not very different from other blurry videos, except that this was simultaneously being filmed from different angles by other people around the city, including American tourists. Here are more videos comparing the shots:
According to the Muslim version of the Lord of the Rings, the Dome of the Rock is the place where Muhammad ascended to heaven accompanied by the angel Gabriel. They also believe that Muhammad hanged around here with Abraham, Moses, and Jesus. The Jewish also believe that Abraham prepared Isaac for sacrifice.
I don't know what this means. I don't know what the hell this is, but that kind of behavior—hovering close to a building and accelerating at blinding speed upwards - can't be replicated by any flying machine known to humans. Maybe it's all just a very elaborated conspiracy. Or an awesome hoax. Perhaps it's just some secret military device. I'm only certain of one thing: I can't wait for Bill O'Reilly to tell us about how this was probably Jesus descending in his spaceship to check out if the tides were still working or not.
