Palestinian Authority Arab terrorists hurled a firebomb at Yosef’s Tomb (Kever Yosef) Wednesday night as 1,500 Jews were arriving from all over the country for prayers marking the beginning of the month of Tammuz.
The Molotov cocktail hit one of dozens of parked buses that had brought worshippers to the holy site.
No one was injured and no damage was reported, but in subsequent clashes, the IDF shot and wounded two rioters.
Like Kassam rockets that land in “open areas” and rock throwing at Jewish motorists who are not hit, the firebombing attack was reported only on the Hareidi Kikar Shabbat website.
Kever Yosef is one of the holy places specifically designated in the Oslo Accords – remember them? – that guarantees Jewish access. That ended almost 15 years ago when the Israeli government allowed the Palestinian Authority to take over the holy site, which was desecrated dozens of times before someone in the IDF finally listened to Jewish leaders in Samaria and decided that perhaps they have a right to pray there.
This is an old story that is repeated over and over, but it is far more significant today, when Israeli political and religious leaders are fighting each over who can get the biggest headline to condemn the band of Jewish idiots who tried to burn down a church on the shores of Kinneret early Thursday morning.
The condemnation was necessary and not out of proportion. Whenever a Jew desecrates a place of worship, he violates Jewish law and Israeli law and needs to be locked up.
The firebomb at Kever Yosef was not shoved to “news briefs” because of the arson. It simply was not reported at all.
This just shows how much the world expect Jews to behave as God told them to behave and how much the world accepts Arab intolerance as a fact of life, which it is.
