And again: ‘Palestinian’ murders IDF soldier in Hebron

September 23, 2013
(Carl) A ‘Palestinian’ terrorist murdered an IDF soldier during Succoth celebrations outside the Machpeila Cave in Hebron on Sunday.

“From what we see, the shooting occurred over a long distance,” a senior army source said. “At this stage, we have no clear direction as to the identity of the shooter,” he added. 

The soldier was evacuated to the Sha’arei Tzedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, where doctors tried to revive him, but he was pronounced dead soon after arrival.

Large numbers of security forces descended on the area and launched searches for the terrorists. The shooting occurred at the Tut Atarek Junction. 

A riot by Palestinians was taking place near the shooting at the time, but it was too soon to link the two incidents, the source said, noting that disturbances in the area “are routine.”

“Shots were fired near the Machpela Cave,” police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld said, using the Hebrew name for a Jewish and Islamic holy site also known as the Tomb of Abraham, long a flashpoint between the two communities.

He said police believed the perpetrator was Palestinian.

Rachel’s Tomb, Cave of the Patriarchs cut from heritage list

February 14, 2012
(Israel Hayom) Moshe Dayan and the temple mount all over again. It isn’t pragmatic to deny your heritage because it pisses other people off. It’s your bowl of Soup Essau, not mine. What makes you think anyone will like you now? Bibi’s office insists omission stems from logistical considerations

Mohammad’s hadith calling to destroy the mosques that are at the Tomb of the Patriarchs, and other burial grounds

December 27, 2011
(EOZ) stumbled across this series of hadiths, from Kitab Al-Salat, book 4 chapter 47:

Book 004, Number 1079:’A’isha reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said during his illness from which he never recovered: Allah cursed the Jews and the Christians that they took the graves of their prophets as mosques. She (‘A’isha) reported: Had it not been so, his (Prophet’s) grave would have been in an open place, but it could not be due to the fear that it may not be taken as a mosque.
Book 004, Number 1080:
Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: Let Allah destroy the Jews for they have taken the graves of their apostles as places of worship.
Book 004, Number 1081:
Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: Let there be curse of Allah upon the Jews and the Christians for they have taken the graves of their apostles as places of worship.
Book 004, Number 1082:
‘A’isha and Abdullah reported: As the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) was about to breathe his last, he drew his sheet upon his face and when he felt uneasy, he uncovered his face and said in that very state: Let there be curse upon the Jews and the Christians that they have taken the graves of their apostles as places of worship. He in fact warned (his men) against what they (the Jews and the Christians) did.

At least one modern Islamic scholar says that such a mosque, if built after the grave was already in place, must be destroyed. It appears to be the mainstream thinking in Wahhabism.
So how come no Muslims are publicly calling to destroy the mosques that are at the Tomb of the Patriarchs, Rachel’s Tomb, the Tomb of Joseph and Samuel’s’ Tomb, among others?
Could it be because the Jews have built places of worship there, and it is more important to erase Jewish connections to the land than it is to observe a series of explicit hadiths?

‘Palestinians’ to seek to add Machpeila Cave to UNESCO heritage list in February

December 27, 2011

American tax dollars hard at work… does Ron Paul have anything to say about this? oh? yeah… this is why we shouldn’t fund UNESCO… and we are breaking our own laws to do this.

(Carl) The ‘Palestinian Authority’ plans to apply to UNESCO in February to have the Machpeila Cave and the Old City of Hebron declared UNESCO heritage sites. It goes without saying that they would classify the cave – the burial place of the three founding fathers of the Jewish nation and their wives – as a mosque.

BTW… this is in complete contradiction to Islamic belief… talk about taqqiyya: Mohammad’s hadith calling to destroy the mosques that are at the Tomb of the Patriarchs, and other burial grounds

The Palestinians say they will ask UNESCO to formally recognise their cultural attachment to the Ibrahimi Mosque in February — a move only made possible by their admission to the UN body two months ago.
“Before we gained membership, we didn’t have the right to add a Palestinian archaeological site to the World Heritage List because we are under occupation and the only way to do it was through friendly countries,” said Palestinian culture minister Siham al-Barghuti.
“Now we can ask UNESCO to add our archaeological and religious sites to the World Heritage List,” she said. “It’s the main benefit we’ve won.” And if granted, would be a second symbolic victory after UNESCO membership.
Before the diplomatic wrangling starts, the Palestinians want to send clear signs that their people cherish the Ibrahami Mosque — as on November 26 when huge crowds gathered there to mark the Muslim New Year, many with their hair newly cut in line with tradition.
“I haven’t seen such crowds for long time, it’s five times more people than were here last year,” said Palestinian Hijazi Abu Sneineh, who called it a “reaffirmation of the Arab and Islamic character of the mosque”.
While both Muslims and Jews pray at the compound, the site has been divided into separate sections since 1994 when an Israeli settler opened fire on Palestinian worshippers, killing 29 of them.
Despite the mosque’s bloody past, Salah Abu Turki, 44, proudly carried his baby son for his circumcision ceremony — a rare event in recent years because of Israeli restrictions on Palestinian access to the site.
“It’s a great honour for me that my son is being circumcised here,” he said.
“The settlers also circumcise their children here, but we have more rights to do so than them because this place is a mosque and this is an ancient tradition for the people of Hebron,” he said.
Heritage efforts are focussed on more than the mosque. The city’s Mayor Khaled Essili recently returned from Paris where he took part in a conference at the Institut du Monde Arabe in support of adding Hebron’s entire Old City, including its holy sites, to the World Heritage List.
“We started a campaign three years ago to add Hebron’s Old City to the UNESCO list,” he said.
“Now the request is ready and we will present it to UNESCO in February 2012.”

I wonder if the Americans will even make noise about withholding aid to the ‘Palestinian Authority’ over this.
What could go wrong?

Illegal Mosque Next to Jewish Holy Graveyard

October 5, 2011
So…..tear it down – just like the houses in Migron.(9-11 Do more then never forget Stop Islam) Illegal construction of a mosque continues just feet from an ancient Jerusalem graveyard. Illegal construction continues at a Jerusalem mosque immediately adjacent to an ancient and holy Jewish graveyard, Jerusalem activists have reported. Workers continue to expand the mosque on the Mount of Olives despite official orders ruling that they must stop. The illegal extension will be located just feet from the graves of revered Rabbi Tzvi Yehuda Kook and former Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin. Senior city officials recently pledged to put a stop to the illegal building, but activists say work continued over the Rosh Hashanah holiday. The latest work included uprooting a stretch of sidewalk, and the destruction of some Jewish tombs recently restored after they were vandalized months earlier.
Veteran Jerusalem activist Aryeh King visited the scene and took pictures showing new work and new construction materials that had been brought in. Also brought in were Arab laborers from Judea and Samaria, who lacked work permits, King said.
“We are facing a nightmare that will all but deny Jews access to graves on the holiest and oldest Jewish cemetery in the world,” said Avrohom Lubinsky of the Committee for the Preservation of the Mount of Olives. He accused city officials of failing to enforce stop work orders.
Jeff Daube, head of the Israel office of the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), termed the ongoing problem “an outrage.”
“We are so concerned about the legal status of three buildings in Migron and will make every effort to tear those down, and in the meantime the Arabs are permitted to continue to build illegally with impunity right next to what, outside the Maarat Hamachpelah [Tomb of the Patriarchs – ed.], is the holiest graveyard in Jewish history,” he told Arutz Sheva.

Israelis desecrate Joseph Tomb?

September 29, 2010

From Iran’s PressTV:

Israelis desecrate Joseph Tomb
At least 100 settlers accompanied by the Israeli military have invaded Nablus city in the occupied West Bank, desecrating Prophet Joseph’s Tomb.
The attack occurred at midnight, Press TV correspondent Sari al-Khalili reported from Ramallah on Tuesday.

They helpfully provide their readers with a photo of this “desecration”:

the horror!


February 27, 2010

What is baffling is the arrogance this President has to demand that Israel cannot claim the burial site of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs of Israel’s founders. I wonder if Obama, whose origins of birth have been questioned, would consider abandoning the burial sites of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, the drafters of the Constitution or the heroes cemetery at Arlington?

Any real American, if asked: Should the U.S. surrender the burial sites of her great leaders or return Mexico would be laughed out or run out of town? So, why does this hodge-podge of ethnicity, different religions, different loyalties tell Israel that the pagan Muslims, with their false claims about anything.
