Rachel's Tomb was never Jewish

'Rachel's Tomb was never Jewish'

By JPOST.COM STAFF

Speaking to Saudi paper, Turkish PM criticizes Israel's nat'l heritage list.

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday continued his verbal assault on Israel, according to Saudi paper Al Wattan, which quoted him as saying that that al Aksa Mosque, the Cave of the Patriarchs and Rachel’s Tomb “were not and never will be Jewish sites, but Islamic sites.”

Erdogan was referring to Israel’s recent inclusion of the Cave of the Patriarchs and Rachel’s Tomb on its national heritage list, but it was unclear why he mentioned the Aksa Mosque, since that site was not included.

Speaking to Palestinian journalists, Erdogan reportedly said, "Palestine [was] always at the top of Turkey’s priorities." He expressed his support for the renewal of indirect talks between Israel and the Palestinians. Donning a cloak of pan-Islamic identity, Erdogan told Al Wattan that he “loves my brothers in Fatah and my brothers in Hamas to the same degree, because they are my Muslim brothers and I cannot distinguish between them.”

Turkey’s prime minister began criticizing Israel in the wake of Operation Cast Lead last year, and has been punctilious in voicing his opinion on Israel’s actions since. In the recent past, he sharply criticized Israel during press conferences with the Lebanese prime minister and with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Turkey also recently distanced itself from the United States, withdrawing the ambassador from Washington after a congressional committee decided to recognize the killing of Armenians during World War I as a genocide. In a sign of tensions between Israel and Turkey, Ankara did not seek the help of Jewish lobbies in Washington, and these groups, which have traditionally advocated on behalf of Turkey, refrained this time from pressing Congress not to accept the resolution.

Watching muslims claim holy sites is like taking ones dog for a walk—they have to pee on every site they find that has been claimed before them.

Rachel's Tomb is is considered the third holiest site in Judaism and the symbol of the return of the Jewish People to its ancient homeland.Traditions regarding the site as the tomb of the biblical matriarch Rachel at this location date back to the beginning of the 4th-century AD.

And Rachel died, and was buried on the way to Ephrath, which is Bethlehem. And Jacob set a pillar upon her grave: that is the pillar of Rachel's grave unto this day." — Genesis 35:19-20

Next he’ll tell us that “Istanbul was never Constantinople.”


By the way, it sure is a double-standard for muslims wanting Jews out of Israel but not having a problem with muslims in Constantinople.

“Erdogan told Al Wattan that he “loves my brothers in Fatah and my brothers in Hamas to the same degree, because they are my Muslim brothers and I cannot distinguish between them.””

Then he should die with them.

Fislam, the religion of feces.

When was Rachel buried, about 2,000 BC? When Moh quit raping goats long enough to write his rambling hate speech, about 300 AD?

This is where Turkey loses its Westernization and begins to slip back into the Islamic evil it has been trying to alienate. There will be a pan-islamic revitalism soon that will bring all islamic nations, sunni and shiite and shia together to fight against the west.

By the way. If he doesn’t distinguish between Hamas and Fatah, then neither should we.

“which quoted him as saying that that al Aksa Mosque, the Cave of the Patriarchs and Rachel’s Tomb “were not and never will be Jewish sites, but Islamic sites.”

Erdogan is suffering from Islamic Derangement Syndrome.

Those sites were Jewish when Islam did not exist.

There are just some facts of life with which one should not mess. History being one of them.

Any day now I expect an earthquake in Israel to unearth something unusual.

570 (approx.) to 632 AD

but the point remains the same, Islam is a late-comer among the major religions but they try to subsume, over-write, or destroy everything that came before
