Jews bribing 'Palestinian police' to let them pray at Joseph's tomb

Sorry guys, but I don't think this is a great idea.
Members of the Breslov chassidic sect told the magazine that they have taken to bribing Palestinian Authority officers in an attempt to gain access.

“Once we saw that the Palestinians now have control over the tomb, we understood that we would need to act differently than before,” a chassid who went by “M” said.

“There was a certain period where nobody tried to sneak in, because we had an arrangement with the IDF,” he continued. However, he said, “Recently our cooperation with them has dwindled, and we started to feel like we were being shut out.”

“We did everything we could... but there's been a change in our relation with the army and until things change, we're going to keep working with the PA police,” he concluded.

Another Breslov man said of the PA officers, “They are still our enemies, this is cooperation solely for an important purpose. We aren't afraid of them, and we know Shechem better than we know our own houses.”

Leaders in the Breslov community said they believe the illegal entry to Joseph's Tomb will stop once relations between the community and the IDF are restored.
What could go wrong?

Why isn't the Israeli government enforcing freedom of access for Jews at a Jewish holy site?

Its disgusting to see it acquiesce in Palestinian anti-Semitism.

I wonder whether there is a Torah prohibition here of "Lo Tichanem" by those paying for the praying.

roof has been rebuilt, work being done on complex; problem is no Jews allowed PA policy for Shechem under Pali control via Oslo--IDF has organized occasional one-off convoys--and site is being prepared for yeshiva and visits in the future

This story is classic media BS. I personally know almost all the holy breslovers who sneak into KY and none of them would do this. I used to join them for the nightly incursions and many times was prevented from getting there by the PA "police" we were once even arrested by them yema"sh. Never did we consider to give those murderes money. I mean never, even when one of them put a gun to one of the boys' head, literally.
