The Golden Gate is one of 4 sealed entrances to the Holy City. Is is prophesied in the Jewish holy scriptures that the Messiah would enter this gate in power and authority. Moslems in the 7th century responded by sealing the gate, preventing anyone from entering. They thought they could prevent the Messiah with bricks. Another thing they did was to put an Arab cemetery right in front of the Golden Gate , believing that any Jew walking through the cemetery by Jewish law would become unclean and therefore would not be able to be the Messiah.
