You may have heard about the murder of Israeli 24-year-old Ben Yosef Livnat, who was killed in cold blood by Palestinian police for the “crime” of visiting Joseph’s Tomb, a holy site in Judaism. (Four other Jews were injured from Palestinian police gunshots.) But you probably haven’t heard or read the important details, like how Israel’s IDF–which was supposed to give Jews permits for their regular visits to the tomb–were denying them and making them harder to get. Can you imagine if they didn’t let Muslims visit the Al-Aqsa mosque, built atop the holiest section of the Jewish Temple? And then started shooting upon them for the “crime” of visiting?
“Peace with Muslims” . . .
Ben-Yosef Livnat: Murdered by Islam for Being a Jew
In general, the only times Israeli soldiers are even near that mosque are when they intently keep Jews from praying on or near that mosque, even though–again–it is built on top of the Temple Mount. In contrast, several years ago, Muslims basically destroyed Joseph’s Tomb because this is how Muslims treat Jewish holy sites. They destroy them and/or build on top of them. In the case of Joseph’s Tomb, they did both a few years ago–desecrating and trying to vanquish the place, then designating it as a mosque. Here’s a tip: Joseph was Jewish, not Muslim. And Israel allows this crap because Israel continues its self-destructive pattern of bending over for these animals. The mainstream media news stories about how Livnat was killed because he didn’t have a permit are BS. Have you ever been killed for not having a permit? No, civilized people don’t do that. Livnat was murdered for one reason: he was a Jew. Oh, and he wasn’t Muslim. So, two reasons.
Don’t forget that these are the Palestinians police–the scum that we, Americans, trained and armed under Presidents Clinton and George W. Bush. These are our “preferred” terrorists from Fatah that the younger Bush spent millions on campaigns for in various Palestinian elections. And this is how they treat Jews who visit Jewish holy site, who weren’t bothering anyone, but for the fact that they exist as Jews.
This is important because one of the holiest sites in Judaism, Ma’arat HaMachpelah–the Cave of the Patriarchs, the cave which contains the graves of Abraham and the other Jewish forefathers, is also in the so-called West Bank, on land that the world wants Israel to give to the Palestinians for their wanna-be state. It is hard enough for Jews to visit there now. In my trips to Israel, I’ve never once been able to go there because it wasn’t safe enough for non-Muslims, each of those times. Imagine what will happen if and when this land is officially made into a Palestinian state.
Jews should not have to get permits to visit Jewish holy sites. Jews shouldn’t have to sneak in to see those sites because the IDF refuses them permits. Jews should be able to freely visit these sites and come back alive and in one piece. But, sadly, that isn’t what happens because Israel gave in–under American pressure–to these animals. And it will continue and expand, including upon visits to the graves of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob. And don’t think that this can’t or won’t ultimately happen with Christians visiting Bethlehem and important sites in Jesus’ story.
People like you and me will be murdered for visiting any and all of these places, just as happened to Ben Yosef Livnat. Yup, this is what “Peace with Muslims” looks like:
Almost every night, Jewish worshippers sneak into Palestinian territory, where Joseph’s Tomb is located, without obtaining a permit. On Sunday morning such a “routine” visit ended with a fatal shooting that killed Ben-Yosef Livnat, a 24-year-old father-of-four and the nephew of Sports and Culture Minister Limor Livnat.
The entrance into the Tomb vicinity is usually coordinated by Chairman of the Yesod Olam association Haim Reicher, who also arranges entries to other holy sites in the West Bank.
“Seventeen years we’ve been fighting to pray at our holy sites,” he said, adding that the group – about 19 men in three vehicles – entered Nablus overnight without receiving authorization.
“They entered the place, prayed, kissed the grave, and when they left Palestinian police officers opened fire at them. There was no confrontation prior to the shooting,” he noted.
According to Reicher, previous visits that were coordinated in advance ended with no incident. . . .
“Coordinating with the army is extremely difficult; they don’t talk to us and when we want to organize a visit they want to communicate only through faxes.”
Reicher noted that he has prayed at Joseph’s Tomb hundreds of times, and that the place is frequently visited by hundreds of worshippers.
“The problem is that we’re allowed to visit only once every month or two. They give us 10 buses, which can carry only 50 people each – but over half a million want to visit.”
Imagine if you needed a permit to go to your church or synagogue, and the government told you that you could only go once a month and that only a certain number of people could go each time. It sounds like the Marxist government of the former Soviet Union. But it’s what Jews must do “in the interest of peace” with Muslim savages.
As the execrable Dr. Phil would say, “An’ howzz that workin’ for ya?”
Like I said, first these Muslims practically destroyed Joseph’s Tomb. Now they take and destroy lives of innocent Jews who go to visit it.
And the world continues to expect the Jews and Israel to make “peace” with these savages?!
Ben-Yosef Livnat, Zichrono LiVrachah [Blessed Be His Memory].
