Palestinian Thugs Torch Joseph's Tomb (again)

In retaliation for the murder of a Jewish worshiper and the wounding of 5 others, last night at Joseph's Tomb, by official Palestinian Authority "policeman", dozens of Palestinians are rioting and burning down Joseph's Tomb in the middle of PA occupied Shechem/Nablus. (Israeli Radio, Channel B)

Preliminary Video, taken from Mount Grizim of the fire coming from the tomb minutes ago:

The murdered Jewish worshiper has been identified as 25 year old, Ben Yosef Livnat, the nephew of Minister of Culture and Sports Limor Livnat (Likud).

The JPost reports:
Livnat was married, a father of four and was a resident of Jerusalem. A 20-year-old man was injured in serious condition, suffering of an abdominal wound. He was airlifted to Bellinson Hospital in Petah Tikva where he underwent surgery. A 17-year-old youth was evacuated by a Magen David Adom Yarkon crew in moderate condition, suffering a wound to his shoulder. Another two individuals were injured in light condition. They did not require evacuation and received medical treatment on location. (JPost)
YNET interviewed one of the worshipers:
One of the Breslovers who was in the second car in the convoy and was lightly wounded told Ynet: "We arrived at the tomb like on many occasions in the past. Near the tomb we saw a spikes chain. One of the guys jumped out of the car and moved it aside.

"At this point a uniformed Palestinian police officer with a Kalashnikov in a jeep woke his colleagues up and they started firing into the air…I was in the front seat. We started driving fast in the direction of the tomb; we got out of the vehicles and kissed the tomb.

"When we got back to the vehicles the police shot at the vehicles, they were screaming 'Allahu Akbar'. ["Allah, The god of Islam, is great" -- the Islamic battle cry traditionally screamed before massacring infidels] It was crazy, they were shooting to kill. I screamed at the driver to drive out of there quickly. When we got to Har Bracha we attended to the wounded." (Ynet)
Haaretz was quick to write:
"The main problem is that they [the Israelis] entered the city without coordination," said Jibril al-Bakri, the Palestinian governor of Nablus.
I thought the main problem was the PA police yelling "Allahu Akbar" and then opening fire at unarmed Jewish worshipers.

Silly me.

I would like to see how IDF would acting if Palestinians were moved in such way through Israeli mahsom

Hey Anonymous: Palestinians don't move through Israel to pray...

But don't worry. If Jerusalem is split as the capital, the Palestinians would respect our sites and allow us to visit them freely. This proves that. Right, right? Right?

Apparently, from a report I read, this was a SNAFU. People are visiting the kever nightly under the watchful eye of the Palestinian police.

But the government and the army will blame the pilgrims, not the Arab animals who are violating the Oslo accords that allow freedom of movement to the kever.

Shut down Al Aksa Mosque until things can be negotiated on an equal basis between religions. Eye for an eye. That'll wake up Ban Ki Moon, Obama and the Jewish left.

Iranian ship loaded with poison gas seized at Port of Sinai.

The entire article at The Jerusalem Post is one sentence long.

So far.

An Iranian ship loaded with poison gas and headed towards Syria was seized at the Port of Sinai, Lebanese Arabic news daily the Beirut Observer reported Sunday.

If you or anyone you know can translate the news into English, here’s the link to main page at The Beiruit Observer.

I know that I'm just going to be saying what everyone else is saying, but I find that the state of the world today is absolutely unacceptable. It should either never be acceptable to desecrate a holy, or it should always be acceptable, there's no "it's ok for the muslims to do this but not ok for the Jews and Christians"

If the IDF was to burn tires in the Al Aksa Mosque...the world would be up in arms over this travesty, but for the Palestinians to kill and unarmed man while yelling Allah Akbar, and then to desecrate a holy site...they're at best tapped on the wrist and told that such behavior isn't very nice.

I would never advocate for incitement, but I can't help but find myself wondering what would the world's reaction be if extremist Jews, Christians, Hindus, or some other religion were to bomb Muslim holy sites in Mecca and Medina, as well as if maybe the world would be a better place if someone did do that.

It is unfortunate that Ben was killed but his group of friends can only blame their stupidity for the death. There is a reason why its a no go zone for Israelis and it should be respected as such. There are measures in place to coordinate legal and secure visits to the tomb. What would happen if a Pali tried to run an Israeli checkpoint ... the same result

Oslo places Josef's tomb in Israeli jurisdiction. Israel abandoned it after PA violence. Why should PA violence be respected? It should be put down and buried.

Yonatan said...

Simon, we have a right to be there without any coordination. Your argument is ridiculous, how many Jewish attacks are being prevented by the pali security patrols? Moral equivalence gone wild.

The murdered Ben Yosef Livnat apparently received his name 25 years ago when he had his brit milah at Yosef's tomb. Therefore not only is his name Son of Yosef, but the Yosef in his name is the very same Yosef in the tomb. He was a very holy soul. But then it hit me, when was he born? Was he born in November 1985 around the time that Yehonatan Pollard was arrested? Something very powerful happened on the 6th day of Pesach this year. If someone can find out his birthdate, it would be very much appreciated.
