On October 21, UNESCO (the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) declared that Rachel’s Tomb near Jerusalem is the Bilal ibn Rabah mosque – endorsing a Palestinian claim that first surfaced only in 1996 and which ignores centuries of Muslim tradition.

Temple Mount's Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem is supposedly the third holiest site of Islam (after Makkah and Medina). It was utterly neglected and falling apart before being meticulously refurbished by the antiquity expertise and funds of the Jooze.

Now, why would that be?

The wonderful thing about the parasitic Islam is that only Christian faith will stop it's spread. Certainly the test of tests.

I imagine the Israelis feel the same way about American Jews.
