Dr. Joseph Frager’s blog in yesterday’s Arutz Sheva, Time for Complete Reclamation of Jewish Holy Sites, comments that President Trump’s declaration of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, has been paved the way for further discussion on reclaiming Jewish Holy sites in Israel.
For example, the Tomb of Joseph in Samaria, is at the top of the list. In April 2002 Joseph’s Tomb was retaken by the IDF as part of Operation Defensive Shield. Despite this, Jews visit the Tomb only at night with a heavy Army presence and visits are limited to once a month.
In 1995 the Tomb of Rachel was saved only through well attended protests and a fierce outcry from the people. It’s time to raise our voices once again and take back what rightfully belongs to Israel.
