Cave of the Patriarchs, Hebron

The Fatah and Hamas terrorist groups have threatened Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu with an escalation in terrorism. The threats were issued over Netanyahu’s plans to visit a Jewish holy site in Hevron.

Netanyahu is planning to visit the Tomb of the Patriarchs (Maarat Hamachpelah), the resting place of the Biblical patriarchs and matriarchs and one of Judaism’s most holy sites.

Fatah spokesman Osama Qawasmi issued a statement reiterating Fatah’s traditional claim that the Tomb is a Muslim, not Jewish, holy place. The site “is solely a mosque,” he claimed.

Fatah similarly claims that the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, the Kotel (Western Wall), and the tomb of the biblical matriarch Rachel in Bethlehem are exclusively Muslim holy places.

Qawasmi warned that if Netanyahu follows through with his planned visit, “we will defend our holy places.”

A Hamas spokesman similarly threatened violence if Netanyahu followed through with the “crime” of visiting the Tomb of the Patriarchs.

Fatah is headed by Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas. Abbas has previously termed Jewish visits to the Temple Mount a “desecration,” and has accused Israel posing a threat to the holy site.

  1. This goes to the relationship of ownership and sacred space, and also the the actual definition of ‘sacred space’…..that it’s not really sacred, if Anybody’- claims they own it—- but that may be too advanced for some ‘conservatives’ to fathom right now, unfortunately for Israel- actually- but partially on itself, that deficit that is being built in Israel, by some (no all) ‘conservatives’.

  2. MOHAM-MAD AND ISLAM.

    http://www.quranexplorer.com/…/bukhari/007.062.088.html
    Bukhari :: Wedlock, Marriage (Nikaah) :: [7.62.88]
    The Prophet wrote the (marriage contract) with ‘Aisha while she was six years old and consummated his marriage with her while she was nine years old and she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death).

    In Islam, not only is rape of children (“marrying”) allowed, but divorcing of pre-pubescent children is OK (Koran 65:4). Moham-mad, the ideal man (Koran 68:4, 33:21) was 51 when he married his child bride Aisha 6. He didn’t deflower her until she was 9 and he was 54. (Bukhari 7.62.88) Remember: not only marriage, but divorce of pre-pubescent girls is allowed for All Muslims according to All*h (Koran 65:4).

    1) Moham-mad is considered a prophet and the ideal man. (Koran 68:4, 33:21)

    2) Moham-mad (51) married his favorite child bride Aisha when she was 6. (Bukhari 7:62:88)

    3) Moham-mad (54) deflowered the nubile Aisha when she was 9. (Bukhari 7:62:88)

    4) Moham-mad ordered all dogs to be killed because of a puppy. (Bukhari 4:54:540) (Kitab Al-Libas wa’l-Zinah) Muslim :: Book 24 : Hadith 5248

    5) Moham-mad helped behead (Koran 47:4) 600 – 900 captives in one day.

    6) Moham-mad and insults against him and Islam (Koran 9:61-:63, 33:57-:58) require death. (Koran 33:61)

    7) Moham-mad had women killed for insulting him. (Asma bint Marwan, Abu ‘Afak, Kab bin Al-Ashraf)

    8) Moham-mad orders anyone leaving Islam to be killed. (Koran 2:217, 4:89) (Bukhari 9.84.57)

    9) Moham-mad curses his aunt and uncle to hell. (Koran Chapter 111)

    10) Moham-mad was made victorious through terror. (Bukhari 4.52.220)

    11)Moham-mad had a woman from Ghamid stoned to death for adultery after weaning her baby. (Kitab Al-Hudud) Book 17 : Hadith 4205 and 4206

    12) Moham-mad got 20 percent of all stolen property. (Koran 8:41)

    13) Moham-mad was spoken to by the devil. (Koran 17:73-:75, 22:52-:53, 53:19-:26)

    14) Moham-mad rode a buraq (winged half-donkey/half mule) to heaven and back meeting Moses. (Koran 17:1) (Bukhari 5:58:227)

    15) Moham-mad led 27 battles and ordered 47 others.

    16) Moham-mad had over 50 sex slaves and wives. (Koran 4:3, :24, 5:89, 23:5, 33:50, 58:3, 70:30)

    17) Moham-mad never had a son. (Koran 33:40 – thus the Sunni and Shia Sects)

    18) Moham-mad alone was allowed to have unlimited wives. (Koran 33:50)

    19) Moham-mad was ordered by All*h to marry his adopted son’s stunning wife. (Koran 33:37)

    20) Moham-mad colored his hair. (Red with Henna). So you can imagine what a prophet of doom Moham-mad was! All sort of evil acts his so-called Allah made okay for him but not for his followers! Wow! What a Allah he is! Listen Moham-mad was himself a true voice of Satan. Now look at his character! You will find nothing good but evil and these are all rape, lust for sex, loot, murder, terrorism, hatred. Even an Atheist will say Moham-mad was not a prophet but a true satanic voice of Satan. Satan put mask on his face and claimed Allah himself. But be honest, there is no Allah but it was Moham-mad himself who picked that name from Kabaah to justify his all sort of evil acts holy. And very sad to say all Muslims follow this Satan and his satanic rules and regulation.

  3. if it were me i would take that as a threat of bodily harm.
    my response would be throw the pig in your worst prison
    then bulldoze 2 mosques and all his family's pig styes.
    then deport all of them except the head pig. him let rot
    in an undisclosed location.
    if they riot which they will bulldoze more mosques starting
    with the main one which would be the first one to go actualy

  4. If only Israel had listened to the Great Rabbi Meir Kahane who wanted all these filthy animals, these scum of the earth arabs driven out of Israel, the trouble these sand s cause would not be happening. All Jews in Israel should be armed and there must be zero tolerance for arab trouble makers. Any arab causing trouble should be shot on sight. I would love to see thousands of armed Jews storm the Temple Mount and destroy that filthy sewer called the dome of the rock. Turn it into a pile of rubble.

  5. Cody Flecker – He paid in 400 sliver sheqalim, cash money. That is more than you have in today's value in all of your possession, most likely. And the reason for the commotion is called jealousy and hatred. Arab armies invaded here in the seventh century and they think that this fact makes them the owners of everything they see. That is theft.

  6. Hamas forgets that all these Muslim "holy sights were Jewish holy sites long before there were any Muslims. The Temple Mount, The Western Wall and Hebron were all Jewish long before there was any such thing as
    a Muslim and have always been Jewish. Should Hamas begin to wage a terrorist war on Netanyahu over his visit, then Netanyahu would be within his rights to wipe out Hanas once and for all!
