Imrei Binah and Daniel

Towards the end of Imrei Binah (the translation for which I hope to finish within the coming days, keep checking the post until it is finished), the author writes explanations for 2 famous calculations in Daniel:

  • Daniel 8's 2300 evening/mornings - The calculation of 2300 years starts either by the destruction of the 1st Beit HaMikdash, or the Pekidah of Koresh, giving a result of approximately 5640 / 5690, about 20 years shy of what I posted here.
  • Daniel 12's 1290 days - The 1290 year period ends in the 4400's, and the Shikutz Shomem is identified with *a* Muslim shrine: The author doesn't give a precise date, nor identify which structure he is referring to, but he says it is on the site of the Holy of Holies, which would indicate he is referring to the Dome of the Rock.  Definitely agreeing with what I posted here.
