Reported by Aaron Kline:
In the last few weeks, Palestinians have been arrested by other Palestinians for nothing more than selling their land in East Jerusalem to Jews. They are taken to Ramallah and interrogated and held in jail.
Not long ago, Palestinians who had been discovered to have sold their homes to Jews were found dead, executed, so this is a change, . . . . of sorts.
Jews who have moved into these homes, have been unable to leave their homes and had to be rescued by the police and abandon their property.
U.S. counselate offices have been calling the Prime Minister, pressuring that there be no building by Jews in certain areas of Jerusalem, yet Palestinian homes already built on Israeli land cannot be touched.
- Would any other nation put up with this kind of intervention?
- What right does the U.S. have to do this?
- Under whose orders, is this being done?
- Where in the world has this ever been done before?
Also, a group of several hundred Jews visiting the tomb of Joseph in Shekhem* (aka Nablus) and found it desecrated with swastikas, star of David symbols, dripping with blood, and other grafitti as well as destruction of the tomb’s headstone. This was in territory evacuated by Jews, given to Palestinians for peace – with the right of Jews to go worship at this holy site.
An oddity here, is that for years Islam there is no Judaism – they have claimed that Joseph is their ancestor, not the Jews – along with Avraham, Isaac, and Yacov. If that were true, why would they have desecrated it – a ‘supposedly’ holy Islamic site?
All this, while the U.S. is demanding the Jews give over the areas of East Jerusalem, to the Palestinians, yet there are holy Jewish sites there; would these sites too not be violated in this same way?
* Shekhem – site where Avraham built an altar (Gen. 12:6-7); Joseph’s tomb, and where Yeshua (Jesus) spoke to the woman at the well (John 4:1-42).
