A third reconstruction of Palmyra's Arch of Triumph

DIABOLICAL PORTAL WATCH: Rabbi Warns Pagan Arch Is End-of-Days Gateway, But Who Will Walk In? (Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz, Breaking Israel News). This inevitable story arises from the replica of Palmyra's ancient Arch of Triumph which was recently erected in Florence, Italy. The rabbi of the headline connects it with the recent G7 meeting and the coming of either the messiah or (I think) the evil New World Order. This is the third time the arch has been reconstructed and put on display since its destruction by ISIS in 2015.

As I and others have pointed out before, the Arch of Triumph was not the entrance to the temple of Bel/Baal. The whole, um, edifice of inferences about its import collapses when we realize this. I have discussed the issue in more detail here and links. I can't see that that this archway represents an omen, either good or bad.
