Jewish worshippers Tuesday were stunned to find Arabs had desecrated the graves of the Biblical Joshua, Caleb and Nun (Joshuas father).
Joshua served as the Jewish Nation's Prime Minister from the year 2488 until 2516 on the Hebrew calendar (1272 BCE - 1300 BCE).
Members of the One Shechem organization that organizes visits to the graves arrived in the village of Timnat (Kifl) Haress, near Ariel in Samaria, to prepare for a special prayer gathering, discovered that Arab vandals had desecrated the villages Jewish tombs. The tombs of Yehoshua (Joshua) ben Nun, Nun, and Calev (Caleb) ben Yefuneh were covered with garbage and feces both human and animal, and anti-Semitic and Nazi slogans and symbols had been painted in the area.
Nevertheless, worshippers gathered at the tombs Tuesday night for special prayers on the tenth of Tevet, the day Kaddish and other prayers are recited for those whose date of death is unknown, such as Calev ben Yefuneh. Organizers had cleaned up the damage and attendees reported a positive experience.
The prayers were also to mark the end of the 30-day increased-stricture mourning period for murdered Jewish father Ido Zoldan of Kedumim, by a Palestinian Authority police officer.
Organizers reported that a wide array of Jews hareidi, national religious and traditional took part in the visit and prayers. They also praised the cooperation of security forces, particularly the Efraim Division of the IDF.
The One Shechem organization issued a call to the public to do everything in their power to preserve the holy sites in Samaria, including Josephs Tomb in Shechem and to fight for the right of Jews to visit and worship there freely.
That’s what you get when you let the Barbarians get their claws on the sacred sites of the Bible. And the “International community” just promised those animals another 7 billion dollars.
i love how these atheists use BCE for dating.
I think they use BCE because it’s a Jewish publication.
"BCE" and "CE" originated with Jews, not atheists.
Now, if it were the Jews or Christians doing something similar to muslim graves, the “Arab Street” would be rioting all over the world, hacking off heads, and the MSM and the RATS would be defending their “outrage”.
We recognize the authority of the Almighty, but we don’t recognize the authority of Christ - BC stands for “Before Christ,” so why should we use that abbreviation any more than you’d use the Islamic calendar for dates?
There's only one way to be sure.
Why would Jews use "Before Christian Era" and "Christian Era" in assigning dates?
/I know, I know....
I’ll give a Jewish publication a pass for using BCE and CE. However, referring to Joshua as a Prime Minister, as if he were the Benjamin Netanyahu of antiquity overseeing the Jewish “Parliament” is really, really silly.
I seriously doubt the author is an athiest. It’s an Israeli publication.
BCE and CE are Common Era, not Christian Era.
I think it's an insult to the animal order, to compare them to demonized human beings.
I wonder, what event happened to mark the start of the "common era" and the end of the era "before the common era"?
