Joshua's Tomb, last year at this time
While the Palestinians talk peace for gullible westerners and scam them for millions in `aid' , they are sending quite another message on the ground. And part of that message involves eradicating every scrap of Jewish presence in the Holy land they can.
Jewish worshippers discovered on Tuesday, December 18th that Arabs had desecrated and vandalized a Jewish Holy site which held the graves of the Biblical Joshua, Caleb ( Joshua's ally) and Nun (Joshua’s father)in the Arab village of Timnat (Kifl) Haress, near Ariel in Samaria (the West Bank). The IDF secures a path to the site four times per year.
The graves were covered in human and animal feces and had anti Jewish grafitti and swastikas scrawled all over them.
The worshipers went to the tombs for special prayers on the tenth of Tevet,
(עשרה טבת or Asarah b'Tevet) a Jewish holiday and day of fasting that commemorates the onset of Nebuchadnezzar's siege of Jerusalem that led to the destruction of the First Temple and the Babylonian captivity.It's also the day when Kaddish (the Jewish prayer of mourning) and other prayers are traditionally recited for those whose date of death is unknown, with particular reference to the victims of the Holocaust.
The ceremony was also to mark the the end of the 30-day mourning period for the murdered Jewish father Ido Zoldan (z"l) of Kedumim by Palestinian Authority police officers.
The worshipers quickly cleaned the tombs as best they could and completed the service.
Like the wholesale destruction of Gaza's synagogues, Joseph and Sarah's tombs, and Jewish relics on the Temple Mount by the Palestinians,this is another story that the world at large ignored, because it doesn't fit the script of the `oppressed' Palestinians. The same could be said of the Palestinian invasion and desecration of the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, where the behavior of the Palestinian jihadis while inside the Church was whitewashed by the world press.
There was not a single word of this disgusting sacrilege in the major wire services. Can you imagine the headlines world wide if this had happened to a mosque? Would we ever hear the end of it?
Jabotinsky was right.
