The Story of Joseph's Tomb

I wrote about Joseph's Tomb last year, and the destruction wrought upon it and other Jewish heritage sites by the Palestinians in the past decade. The following video is a bit hokey, but it's important to keep this issue on the front burner. The Palestinian Authority, and the Palestinians it represents, must be held to their commitments under signed agreements and international law, if not basic human decency. Likewise, the Israeli authorities, who have yet to discover a Jewish heritage site they would not readily hand over to rioting Arab mobs in exchange for a piece of paper, are to be put on notice that sites of eternal significance to the Jewish people such as Kever Yosef are non-negotiable. Or must we get our own Waqf?
