Absurdity at the Cave of the Patriarchs: Terrorist Approval Needed?

This coming Wednesday, the Jerusalem District Court is expected to rule on the saga of accessibility for people with disabilities and the elderly at the Cave of the Patriarchs. This, after Defense Minister Benny Gantz also ordered promoting the accessibility program and the move was stopped in a petition by Leftist organizations to the court.

“There’s access to both the cave plaza and the roof of the building. The absurdity cries to heaven, the Sovereign state of Israel needs the approval of Taysir Abu Sneina, who was part of the cell that murdered six yeshiva students in 1980?” MK Halevi asks, and calls to fulfill the expression of kindness, the great symbol of our ancestor Abraham, and make the cave accessible.

It is our hope that a path will be created for the disabled to this holy site without further delay. And without terrorist approval.
