Jewish restoration of Rachel’s Tomb in Bethlehem and the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron might lead to war.
Arab Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas threatened Israel in his speech to the Belgian parliament Tuesday. Abbas called restoration of Jewish heritage in Bethlehem and Hebron for a «severe provocation» that could lead to a new cycle of violence.
To add these two monuments to the list of sites of national importance could ignite a «war of religions» in the region, explained Abbas.

Mahmoud Abbas reaction is typical for the Islamic views on the Jewish heritage in the Middle East. It has to be deleted and replaced with knowledge and supremacy of Allah and Muhammad.
If Abbas was interested in history, increased tourism and the truth, He would have rejoiced over the initiative by the government of Israel. Because heritage tourism is an increasing business in the World today.
If Abbas had not had Hamas on his back, He would not have been talking of war with Israel because of an cultural initiative. He would have said that Israel do not have to take care of these two monuments, because the Arab Palestinians will take from the hundreds of millions of dollar they receive, and do this restoration work them selves…..And later «forgotten» about the whole thing.
But the spirit of Allah speaks. And as usual, only venom comes out.
