Holy Land: Joshua’s Tomb vandalized with Arabic graffiti

Remember the mutilation of the Holy Thorn Tree in Glastonbury, England?

From Jihad Watch:

“If Jews were to desecrate a Muslim holy tomb in the same manner, the whole world would rage and erupt.” Yep.

Islamic Tolerance Alert from Samaria: “Joshua’s Tomb vandalized with Arabic graffiti,” from the Jerusalem Post, December 17:

Palestinians vandalized Joshua’s Tomb in Samaria’s Timnat Heres with Arabic graffiti overnight Thursday.Hundreds of Jewish worshippers, escorted by the IDF, arrived at the site and discovered graffiti on surrounding walls which supported martyrdom.

“Only barbarians are capable of committing such harmful, menacing acts,” head of the Samaria regional council Gershon Mesika said. “If Jews were to desecrate a Muslim holy tomb in the same manner, the whole world would rage and erupt.”

Sts. Nunilio and Alodia, pray for us.

    Don’t Muslims venerate Joshua as a patriarch of their faith as well?

    This is awful!
    I didn’t know that the ‘Tomb of Joshua’ even existed–I guess it does.
    What the man from Samaria said! If the Jews vandalized a Moslem tomb, there WOULD BE outrage all over the world! Double standard!

    Cue tenth Crusade in 3, 2, 1 …

    Taking up Arieh’s question: I would not be surprised if there is a dimension of this involving (so to put it) self- but not each-other-mutually-describing Muslims. I was lately reading how late 19th-centuy Moslem guardians of Islam were horrified at the prospect of the Wahabists (sp.?) ever taking over – for fear of how they would treat Mohammed’s tomb! I don’t know the full details of what did happen…

    Sorry: “century guardians of Mecca”

  6. Brad says:

    The cenacle is constantly defaced with feces , urine and graffiti. Demons control men like marionettes.

    Today is 892nd anniversary of the end of 404 years of moslem control of Zaragoza (not that the current government is much better).
