Al Aksa Mosque, the Cave of the Patriarchs and Rachel’s Tomb were not and never will be Jewish sites, but Islamic sites.
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday continued his assault on Israel, according to Saudi paper Al Wattan. Erdogan told Al Wattan that he “loves my brothers in Fatah and my brothers in Hamas to the same degree, because they are my Muslim brothers and I cannot distinguish between them.”
Erdogan’s sticking of his nose in the recent Palestinian rancor over Israel’s declaration that the Cave of the Patriarchs and Rachel’s Tomb will be part of a list of sites slated for preservation is the latest in a seemingly calculated series of moves based on Turkey’s reassessment of a power-shift occurring in the Middle East. It was not clear why he mentioned the mosque, as Israel never declared it part of the list.
Turkey also recently distanced itself from the United States, withdrawing the ambassador from Washington after a congressional committee decided to label the killing of Armenians during World War I as a genocide.

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan just skipped 3500 years of history. Since Rachel was the wife of Israel, there must be a missing link in his mind. Because Islam was founded around 600 A.D.
Rachel walked on Earth, more than 2.000 years before Islam came into existence. Surely she was Jewish. She has a prominent role in the Hebrew Bible, and is not even mentioned in the Koran.
Then the elders and all those at the gate said, “We are witnesses. May the LORD make the woman who is coming into your home like Rachel and Leah, who together built up the house of Israel. May you have standing in Ephrathah and be famous in Bethlehem.
