JERUSALEM – Palestinians yesterday tried to burn down Joseph's Tomb – Judaism's third holiest site – according to Palestinian security officials speaking to WND.
It marks the second time the Palestinians attempted to burn down the tomb, located near Nablus, the biblical city of Shechem.
Joseph's Tomb is the believed burial place of the biblical patriarch Joseph, the son of Jacob who was sold by his brothers into slavery and later became viceroy of Egypt.
Palestinian security officials in Nablus said yesterday they were called to the tomb to find 16 burning tires inside the sacred structure.
A Palestinian police official who inspected the site told WND today there was some fire damage to the tomb. He said the Palestinian Authority, fearing embarrassment, immediately formed a joint committee from the PA's Force 17, Preventative Security Services and Palestinian intelligence, to find out who was behind the fire.
He said patrols were stepped up around the site.
A spokesman for the Israel Defense Forces said the IDF was not aware of the fire or any unusual activity near the tomb but that it would immediately inquire with the PA.
The move comes after Prime Minister Ehud Olmert announced last week he would ask Israel's Defense Ministry to work with the PA to reconstruct and restore the tomb, parts of which were destroyed by Palestinians, including known PA security officers, in 2000.

Was Joseph Catholic?
“Brace yourself for beheadings and massive riots by the Catholics again. /s”
Has the Archbishop of Canterbury come out in support of the Muslim arsonists yet?
Utter sacrilege. Of course, a world that considers ancient pagan idols to be “treasures of humanity” cares not a whit.
Kill the Palestinians responsible & then burn down their tombs.
Wouldn't your sarcasm have been more to the point if you had used Jews (whose holy site it is) instead of Catholics?
Here's what it looked like the last time these primitives did this..
Or just reclaim the Temple Mount and call it even.
These savages have brought His curse upon themselves.
Wikipedia has an article on this, here:
It’s been vetted by Muslims, naturally, but it describes some of the previous violence and destruction at the tomb.
I’m not sure what the Muslim attitude is, exactly. In Islam, Joseph is Youssef, and there are passages about him in the Koran. He is supposedly one of the Muslim “prophets.”
But the Muzzies seem very, very anxious to destroy this tomb.
In northern Cyprus, the Eastern Barbarian Mohammedans have turned Orthodox Churches and shrines into public urinals and stables. The same fate has befallen those Orthodox churches and monasteries in Kosovo which haven’t simply been destroyed. What do all of these desecrations have in common? The financial and diplomatic support of the Bush Administration.
Anyone who still believes that the massive slaughter of Islamists and the destruction of vast areas in the Islamic Republics can be avoided - is delusional....
That is how it has always been, that is how it must always be....when dealing with 7th century cultists.
“That is how it has always been, that is how it must always be....when dealing with 7th century cultists.”
This what some of us were taught in our cribs by our old people and what we have taught our children and grandchildren.
