So it should really surprise no one that the UN, which includes such wonderful (islamic!) abusers of human rights as Iran, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Indonesia etc etc announced last week that Rachel's Tomb, isn't actually Rachel's Tomb, but is conveniently a Mosque.
The continuing delegitimization of Israel, our eternal Homeland, has made many almost immune to some of the ridiculous statements being leveled against her. Each day it's something new, such as the Muslim Waqf accusing Israel's installation of a disabled access system to the Kotel as being "destruction of historical muslim artifacts." Rich statements coming from those who un-ceremoniously dumped hundreds of tons of Temple-Era artifacts in the Kidron Valley, still being investigated by archeologists to this day.
Our "peace-loving" arab neighbors who still desire a Judenrein Judea/Samaria are engaged in a war to erase Jews from history. They are helped by the leftists and our brethren who want to "be like the goyim" and who at differing times in our history have aided our enemies until they eventually become the targets themselves.
Nothing new there.
This time however, it's personal. The Midrash relates the story of just how much we owe Mama Rochel. When Hashem Yitbarach decreed the exile of the Jewish people from Eretz Yisrael, our leaders and forefathers beseeched Hashem to have mercy. Only when Rachel asked did Hashem elicite compassion and decree that some day we will return to our land. That time has now come and returned we have and are.
So the arabs want to erase the Jews, again nothing new. That the world is becoming increasingly enamored with the bizarre and outright loony claims of the arabs is however (at least to me) alarming. Latma TV recently did a spoof of the UN declaring the US Congress was actually a Mosque. What about Big Ben? Or 10 Downing Street? Or the Vatican? Or those heads on Easter Island? What's next?
Sounds silly, but this is even moreso, this is the grave site of our great great grandmother Mama Rochel who did everything she could for her children. Surely this must be enough for our ever-decreasing leftists/self-hating Jewish brothers to see how twisted the anti-Israel bias is?
In the mean-time, here's Shwekey's Mama Rochel:
