Swastikas Painted On Joseph’s Tomb – Israel




Jews who arrived last night to pray at Joseph’s Tomb, Judaism’s third holiest site,  were stunned to learn the structure had been vandalized, with the headstone smashed in and swastikas painted on the walls.

“Only barbarians could do such things. People who pathologically disgrace such a holy place don’t deserve to be called human beings,” said Gershon Mesika, head of the Jewish regional council in the West Bank.

Joseph’s Tomb is the believed burial place of the biblical patriarch Joseph, the son of Jacob who was sold by his brothers into slavery and later became viceroy of Egypt. Following repeated Palestinian attacks, Israel in October 2000 unilaterally retreated from Joseph’s Tomb and, with very few exceptions, banned Jews from returning to the site purportedly for security reasons. The tomb area is now controlled entirely by the Palestinians.
