Jewish Cemetery stolen by Arabs in Hebron

Earlier this week, Hebrew residents discovered that two 'caravan' structures had been placed on property belonging to the ancient Jewish Ashkenazi cemetery in the city.

The cemetery plot lies adjacent to the plot where Menucha Rachel Shneerson Slonim, granddaughter of the "Baal HaTanya" and daughter of the "Mittler Rebbi" is interred. The land was purchased by Chabad in the early 1900s and it is unclear whether or not any Jews were actually buried there. The plot has remained vacant for decades.

According to sources close to Hebron, Arabs plan on 'building a school' on the land where the caravans were placed.

When Hebron leaders notified military and civil administration officials, they were told, "There is nothing we can do - this land was transferred to the 'Palestinian Authority" (the terrorists) as part of the 'Hebron Accords' and it is under their jurisidiction. They can do there whatever they want."

Hebron resident, Rabbi Danny Cohen, a Chabad 'shaliach' in Hebron, pointed out the security danger, being that every afternoon a group of men study in a small room above the cemetery. However, this plea was also ignored.

A Hebron spokesman issued the following reaction: This is absurd. Both the Ashkenazi and Sepharadi cemeteries were destroyed by Arabs following the massacre and expulsion in 1929. Now, the Arabs are stealing Jewish property, 100% ours, right under our noses and we can't do anything about it? We demand that the caravans be removed immediately and that the land be returned to the Jewish Community of Hebron.

Greedy Arab: It is a Jewish state and you have 20 Arab countries. Choose one of them. They have plenty of money because they constantly fund terrorist Arabs.

No matter how many want to denie us the wright to leave in peace, the people of Israel will recive the Messiah. This is going to happen when HaShem decides it, not when any barbaric wants to destroy us; remember we have been living there since the Egiptian times, it has been our land and G-d gave it to our people to make from it a Holy Nation.
