(IsraelNN.com) Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas warns of a holy war over Rachels Tomb in Bethlehem. Muslims claim it is a 1,000-year-old mosque, although Islam - only 1,300 years old itself - began publicly claiming the site only 44 years ago. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu accused Abbas of hypocrisy.
The Prime Minister announced earlier this week that the ancient tomb, located immediately south of Jerusalem, and the Patriarchs Cave (Me'arat HaMachpelah) in Hevron, are Jewish heritage sites that will be refurbished.

Early destruction of Joseph's Tomb by Arab terrorists.

'Doesn't matter. They'll eventually demand it be torn down anyway so they can put one up there.
It gets me how muslims can claim OT patriarchy as their own, yet trash its symbols nonetheless.
Israel: Kill islamists en masse. Dont wait for us.
