Jews attack Mosque
Jewish extremists on Wednesday tried to torch an old mosque in Jerusalem, as Israel reopened a ramp leading to the Al-Aqsa mosque compound, whose closure sparked Muslim anger.
The overnight attack on the disused mosque (incorrect) in downtown west Jerusalem saw unknown attackers try and set the building alight and daub its exterior walls with racist anti-Arab slogans written in Hebrew.It was the latest in a slew of so-called "price tag" incidents - revenge attacks by Jewish extremists which generally target Palestinians and Arabs.
The attack targeted the Nebi Akasha mosque, which dates back to the 13th century and had not been used as a place of worship since Israel’s creation in 1948. The city council currently uses the building as a storage facility.
In other words the ancient mosque, which belongs to the Palestinian people, is not used because Israel has disallowed or barred it's use by the Palestinians and commandeered it for their own purpose.
In what can can only be seen as an attempt to wipe the history of Palestinian people off the map. Looks that way.
Reading further through this article it is obvious I am not the only one that get's what is going on.
"The destruction of the antiquities, in this case probably by Israelis, is part of the process of erasure of ‘the other’ - of everything that doesn’t suit the extremist and one-dimensional ideology of certain Israeli groups,"
Of course, it isn't just this mosque. There is an ongoing problem with attacks by Israeli Jews on Palestinians
Overnight, there were three more price tag attacks in the northern West Bank where Palestinian cars were torched in three separate villages and Hebrew graffiti found nearby, the Israeli military and Palestinian witnesses said.
