Jordan complaints over Israel fixing church wall in Jerusalem

The Jordanian government on Thursday registered its displeasure with Israeli-funded renovations of an outer wall at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem’s Old City, the traditional location of Jesus’ burial.

The main entrance to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem.

The Jordanian Foreign Ministry summoned the Israeli ambassador and handed him a letter that decried Israel’s «unilateral» measures that were damaging the «status quo» in the Holy City. The Jordanians insisted that the renovation work violated certain agreements and must be halted immediately.

Israeli officials cited by Ynet said they weren’t sure what all the fuss was about, since the wall in fact did need renovation work, and that the work now being carried out had been coordinated with church officials.

My comment:

It might be considered as «sweet», that the Islamic Kingdom of Jordan is concerned about Israel not taking proper care of Churches inside the Old city of Jerusalem.

Because I guess very few people really believe that the Muslims will be capable of doing a better job?

During the year of Jordanian occupation of East Jerusalem, we did not see many Islamic workmen doing restoration of Churches and Synagogues. To the radical opposite, the Kingdom of Jordan blew up and destroyed plenty of synagogues. The need for maintenance of the Churches in the Latin and Armenian quarters were at best ignored.

After the liberation of Jerusalem in 1967, the Zionist Government have done maximum to develop Jerusalem into a popular tourist destination. People of all faiths have been allowed to enter all their holy sites. If the state of Israel will be forced to evacuate Jerusalem, and hand it back into the hands off its Islamic occupiers, the city will quickly fall into chaos, despotism and a hug for continued terror attacks on the rest of the Jewish homeland.
