Firebomb Attack Targets Jewish Worshipers at Rachel’s Tomb

    UNESCO’s  (the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization) Executive Board voted to declare the sites as “al-Haram al-Ibrahimi/Tomb of the Patriarchs” and “Bilal bin Rabah Mosque/Rachel’s Tomb” and stated that they were “an integral part of the occupied Palestinian Territories” and any unilateral Israeli action was a violation of international law.

The present structure consists of two chambers; one, a domed chamber, is of Muslim Ottoman construction.

What one would imagine from this headline are nefarious outlaw terrorists, as Palestinians are branded on their own land by the foreign element Zionists, throwing a firebomb at Rachael’s Tomb, which happens to be a Muslim, Christian AND Jewish holy site not a Jewish one, out of sheer hatred for everything Jewish.

Israel occupied the Bilal bin Rabah mosque  in the 1967 Six-Day War designating as a Jewish holy site while it sits in a Christian and Muslim holy site. Today, the Maqam is surrounded by Israel’s West Bank recent barricade wall to keep Palestinians and Christians out.

The PX Commission of the Executive Board of UNESCO adopted resolutions which say that the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hevron and Rachel’s Tomb in Bethlehem are “an integral part of the Occupied Palestinian territory.”

The resolutions also condemned Israel for building the security fence, carrying out excavations in eastern Jerusalem, and for “other measures aimed at altering the character, status and demographic composition of the Occupied Palestinian territory.” They also assert that Israel destroyed Palestinian schools, including in the illegal Bedouin outpost Khan al-Ahmar.

The resolutions were submitted by Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Oman, Qatar and Sudan, and were approved several minutes after the beginning of the commission’s meeting. The committee includes the 59 members of UNESCO’s Executive Board.

Over a year ago, UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee declared that the old city of Hevron and the Tomb of the Patriarchs were “Palestinian” heritage sites. In 2010, a report by the organization branded the Tomb of Rachel a mosque.

Rachel’s Tomb, also known as the Bilal bin Rabah mosque to Muslims is the name given to a small religious building revered by Jews, Christians and Muslims. The tomb is located within a Muslim cemetery in Bethlehem Palestine.

In 2005, following Israeli only  approval on 11 September 2002, the Israeli West Bank barrier was built around the tomb, effectively annexing it to Jerusalem.[25][1][26][27] A 2005 report from OHCHR Special Rapporteur John Dugard noted that: “Although Rachel’s Tomb is a site holy to Jews, Muslims and Christians, it has effectively been closed to Muslims and Christians.”[28] 

On October 21, 2015, UNESCO adopted a controversial resolution reaffirming a 2010 statement[29] that Rachel’s Tomb was: “an integral part of Palestine.”[30] On 22 October 2015, the tomb was separated from Bethlehem with a series of concrete barriers.

New antisemitism is the concept that a new form of antisemitism has developed in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, tending to manifest itself as opposition to Zionism and criticism of the Israeli government. The concept is included in some definitions of antisemitism, such as the Working Definition of Antisemitism and the 3D test of antisemitism.

The concept generally posits that in the late 20th and early 21st centuries much of what is purported to be criticism of Israel by various individuals and world bodies is in fact tantamount to demonization, and that together with an alleged international resurgence of attacks on Jews and Jewish symbols, and an increased acceptance of antisemitic beliefs in public discourse, such demonization represents an evolution in the appearance of antisemitic beliefs

Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon responded to the resolution:

“This is further evidence, for anyone who did not understand why the United States and Israel withdrew from UNESCO, that again proves that UNESCO is a body based on lies and biases, and is deliberately acting against us,” said Danon.

“The State of Israel will not be a member of an organization that is trying to rewrite history and willing to be manipulated by our enemies.”

Another deceptive Israeli headline: Palestinians tried to burn down Joseph’s tomb while protesting.

The real headline is:
Israeli Settlers Invade Joseph’s Tomb, Several Palestinians Injured
Several Palestinians were injured by Israeli gunfire overnight Monday, as hundreds of illegal Israeli settlers forced their way into Joseph’s Tomb near the northern West Bank city of Nablus, Palestine security sources told WAFA.
Israeli forces escorted a convoy of buses packed with hundreds of extremist Jewish settlers into the site, located in the Palestinian Authority controlled area, sparking confrontations with Palestinian residents.

Soldiers opened fire on Palestinians protesting the raid and attempting to block settlers’ access to the site, injuring several protestors with rubber-coated steel bullets. At the time of writing, the number of injured is unknown.

Soldiers also showered protesters with tear gas canisters, causing many to suffer tear-gas inhalation, all of whom received first aid treatment at the scene.

Settlers repeatedly invade Joseph’s Tomb, located in a densely populated area in Nablus, provoking chaos and confrontation with local residents.

European invader Jews claim ownership and change Palestine history everywhere they go. They create chaos and use violence everywhere they go.

 

Now the Israeli news.

A firebomb was thrown at Jewish worshipers at Rachel’s Tomb in Bethlehem Palestinian “terrorists”.

Jerusalem police said that “an object was thrown at the barrier wall at the Tomb of Rachel on Monday; there were no casualties and no damage was caused.”

Rabbi Tzvi Uziyahu, one of the rabbis administering Rachel’s Tomb institutions, told Israel National News, “By God’s grace we had a miracle. If God forbid the explosives had ignited, there would have been many casualties at the bus stops and at the entrance to the tomb.” Jewish studies and prayers continued at Rachel’s Tomb despite the firebomb attack, he added.

Located on the northern edge of Bethlehem, the tomb is revered as the burial place of the Jewish biblical matriarch Rachel, the wife of Jacob and mother of Joseph and Benjamin. It is considered one of Judaism’s holiest sites.*

Only the Palestinian Jews (before the European invasion) are the real Jews and they don’t usurp from the Muslims or Christians…Palestine belongs to all Palestinians.

 

 

 

By Way of Deception: Israel’s terrorists who pose as Palestinians

Instead of Jewish terrorists has turn into Palestinian terrorists. An inversion of truth.

They were disguised as Arab waiters, carrying six large milk pitchers loaded with 350 kilograms of explosives and a self-detonating device. They put the pitchers in the hotel café’s kitchen and fled.

 They are dressed like Palestinian protesters, speak with the same accents and expressions, and show the same mannerisms. Their faces covered with checkered keffiyehs or balaclavas, they chant against the Israeli army and sometimes throw stones in the direction of the soldiers, all while drawing in other protesters as they get closer and closer to the army.

Then, quick as a bang, the scene erupts, and this group suddenly turns on the rest of the Palestinian protesters, brandishing guns that were concealed under their shirts, firing in the air, grabbing those nearest to them and wrestling them to the ground.

The army advances and takes into custody the Palestinians that were caught, as the rest of the protesters disperse, screaming out one word as a warning to others: “Musta’ribeen!”

Disguised as Arabs

Musta’ribeen, or mista’arvim in Hebrew, is a word that is derived from the Arabic “musta’rib”, or one that is specialised in Arabic language and culture. In Israeli security terms, the word denotes security forces who disguise themselves as Arabs and carry out missions in the heart of Palestinian societies or other Arab countries.

The agents are given rigorous training, and in operations concerning the occupied territories, are taught to think and act like a Palestinian. Their main missions, according to Israeli affairs expert Antoine Shalhat, include gathering intelligence, arresting Palestinians, and – in their eyes – counterterrorist operations.

“The first musta’ribeen unit was established in 1942 before the state of Israel came into being until 1950,” Shalhat said. “This unit was part of the Palmach, an elite division of the Haganah militia, which went on to later become the core of the Israeli army.”

Not much is known about these agents because they operate in secret, he added. The Israeli army dissolves these units once their work is found out, and forms new ones to take their place.

“The agents must speak Arabic as if it is their mother tongue,” Shalhat said. “They undergo courses to master Palestinian dialects and Arabic accents according to which Arab country they operate in, such as Yemen or Tunisia.

These courses take between four to six months and include how to master customs and religious practices, such as fasting and praying.

The agents use makeup and wigs to complete their disguise but are chosen according to how similar their physical features are to Arab countenances.

In total, the training can take up to 15 months, and consists of operational field work such as driving and sniping, how to move around in crowded Palestinian settings, and arms training.

“One of the most well-known units was the Rimon, which was established in 1978 and remained active until 2005,” Shalhat said. “Their work was mostly concentrated in the Gaza Strip. Another unit that operated in Gaza was called Shimshon during the 80s and 90s.”

“The Duvdevan 217 elite unit is still operative within the army. It was established during the 1980s by [former Israeli prime minister] Ehud Barak and currently functions in the West Bank and is considered the most active and secretive.”

 

Presence in recent protests

In December, Palestinians protested US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Hundreds were arrested by Israeli forces, and 10 people were killed across the West Bank and Gaza Strip in the first two weeks.

During one of the protests at Ramallah’s northern entrance near the illegal Bet Il settlement, a group of musta’ribeen infiltrated the protest and arrested three young Palestinian men, according to journalist Rasha Harzallah.

“They were only there for 10 minutes,” said Harzallah, who was standing the closest to the first Palestinian protester arrested on Wednesday, December 13. “They were dressed exactly like the other Palestinian protesters, and threw a sound grenade at them.”

“They were about five in total, and pulled out their guns and began firing in the air,” she continued. “The army then suddenly advanced in huge numbers, and they began firing live bullets at people and in the air, even at the journalists.”

Harzallah, who works for the official Wafa news agency, said that the agent nearest to her was wearing a dark red shirt and had his face covered with a keffiyeh.

“Before, he was standing on the front line with the other Palestinian protesters throwing rocks at the Israeli army,” she said.

“The army then suddenly advanced quickly. Then I noticed the red-shirted man on top of a Palestinian protester, and he was waving his gun towards me and the photographer next to me shouting ‘don’t get close!'”

‘How can they tell who they are?’

Harzallah explained that before the musta’ribeen made their presence known, the protesters were throwing stones at the Israeli army. But the soldiers did not respond, which immediately raised suspicions.

“They did not do anything,” she said. “From experience, the protesters know that when the Israeli army stops firing sound grenades, tear gas, rubber bullets … then there’s a big probability that the musta’ribeen are present among them. But how can they tell who they are?”

In the 2015 protests commonly referred to by Palestinians as the “Intifada of the knives”, Harzallah witnessed another raid by the musta’ribeen, which she described as much worse.

“They fired their weapons at two Palestinians, one in the head and the other in his leg from point-blank range,” she said.

“I saw them drag the Palestinian they had shot in the head…I thought he was dead because I saw bits of his flesh on the ground.”

The young man, Mohammed Ziyadeh, lived; he remains partially paralysed.

In an interview with Al Jazeera shortly after the incident, Ziyadeh relayed from his hospital bed that after being beaten by the musta’ribeen, they fired a bullet at his head and he lost consciousness.

“When I came round, they began interrogating me, but I told them I could not remember anything,” he said, his speech slurred. “They took me to the hospital and beat me up again.”

Ziyadeh underwent two surgeries and was interrogated and beaten after each one. His lawyer finally managed to set him free, and shortly after he was able to move one of his legs again.

With the emergence of the musta’ribeen in protests, Palestinians have learned to become more vigilant.

One way of differentiating themselves from the undercover Israeli agents is tucking their shirts into their waistbands, where concealed weapons would be seen.

“They should also take caution when a group drags other protesters closer to the army,” Harzallah said, “and make sure that there is a group monitoring other protesters.”
