Humiliation at Aaron’s Tomb

After seeing Israeli tourists praying at Aaron’s Tomb, Jordan closed it off to them.

Tour guide Roni Ayalon said that the group was subjected to humiliating treatment by Jordanian authorities. “They just stripped down all of us,” he said. “They took off the women’s head scarves. All the boys’ yarmulkes were taken off. They took off everyone’s shirts to see if they had tzitzit (religious fringes) under their clothes and took [the tzitzit] off them. They confiscated any religious symbols they found on us.”

Just imagine the world condemnation if an Arab in Israel were ever be treated in this fashion! Jerusalem Post story HERE.
