On the day that marks the passing of the Biblical Matriarch Rachel, we look at the Tomb of Rachel, once a beautiful and romantic place of prayer in Bethlehem which has been transformed, because of the Jihad, into an uninspiring and scary defensive fortress. Moreover, it has been recognized and renamed by Islam and UNESCO as the Bilal bin Rabah mosque. Yet, all those efforts have not stopped 45 thousand Jews from coming and worshiping at the site today! Yoel Keren, Jewish sources scholar, joins Yishai to discuss the location of the Tomb of Rachel in Jewish sources. Then, Middle East Conversations with Bassem Eid, VOI Arab Affairs Correspondent, discusses the honor and shame of the recent Jihad murderers: shame to be an Islamic baby killer, but also Abu Mazen’s pride in the almost-killing of Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick.
