Muslims desecrate Meorath HaMachpeila (Cave of the Patriarchs), no one calls it terrorism, UNESCO not found

Muslim worshipers at the Machpeila cave in Hebron destroyed two mezuzoth (parchment scrolls that Jews affix to the doorposts of their buildings) over the weekend. So far, no one has called it terrorism.  UNESCO, which wanted to declare the Machpeila cave a heritage site in a bid to prevent Jews from going there, has been silent. Only a few rabbis are protesting.
Rabbi Eli Ben Dahan, who serves as Deputy Religious Affairs Minister and Supervisor of Holy Sites, visited the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hevron after receiving reports of the vandalism.’‘
Jewish worshipers who arrived at the site after Muslim prayers on Friday were horrified to find widespread desecration of the holy tomb. Two mezuzahs – the cases containing Jewish holy scriptures affixed to the doorpost, and the scriptures contained therein – had been torn off and stone. A third was damaged.
The Muslim worshipers had also hurled mud and garbage around the site – Judaism’s second holiest, after the Temple Mount – where the Biblical patriarchs and matriarchs, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca and Leah lie interred.
“This vandalism must be condemned by the heads of state,” Rabbi Ben Dahan told journalists. “Our forefathers are here, and the matriarchs! As a Jew, I call [on the public] to avoid silence and to protest this ‘price tag’.”
If only anyone cared....

I think it is long past time that Israel reclaim what is hers, The Temple Mount, The Cave of the Patriarchs etc. and station troops at the sites to kill any Muslim who tries to attack. These sites are Jewish sites and have been, long before Islam even existed. If Israel won't claim what is historically hers, how can you expect the Arabs/Muslims to not try and claim it?
