'Palestinians' declare Joseph a Muslim

In the wake of yet another attempt to destroy the tomb of Joseph, the son of the Patriarch Jacob, in Shchem (Nablus) (pictured at top left after a previous attempt) on Tuesday, 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen's Fatah organization has said that it will restore the tomb and 'protect' the 'Muslim holy site' from destruction. Huh?
"Pay no attention to the rumors that we will work with Israel to restore the burial site of the holy Muslim Joseph," said the statement, issued from Nablus, the biblical city of Shechem. "We are going to guard this holy Muslim site."
Now, where have we heard before about Muslims co-opting other religions' holy sites and claiming them as their own?
Under the 1993 Oslo Accords, which granted nearby strategic territory to the Palestinians, Joseph's Tomb was supposed to be accessible to Jews and Christians. But following repeated attacks against Jewish worshipers at the holy site by gunmen associated with then-Palestinian Liberation Organization leader Yasser Arafat's militias, then-Prime Minister Ehud Barak in October 2000 ordered an Israeli unilateral retreat from the area.

Within less than an hour of the Israeli retreat, Palestinian rioters overtook Joseph's Tomb and reportedly began to ransack the site. Palestinian mobs reportedly tore apart books, destroying prayer stands and grinding out stone carvings in the Tomb's interior. A Muslim flag was hoisted over the tomb.
The 'Palestinians' did such a great job of keeping that agreement that we should enter into another one with them.

Islamic theology views Adam, the Patriarchs and everyone down as being the original Muslims.

Think Me'arat Ha'Machpelah in Hevron.

No surprise here.

It's the same story repeated over the situation at Rachel's Tomb as well.

The Palestinians seek to write the Jewish history and ties to the holy sites out of existence.

The surprise is not in claiming Joseph as a Muslim--they even have a whole chapter (sura 12) of the Qur'an called Yusuf (or Joseph), but the surpise is in the protection offered it, since it is un-Islamic to honor graves (ex, the grave of Muhammad's daughter Fatima was destroyed by the Wahhabis, as was the Jeddah grave supposedly of Eve, etc)--though of course, the impure/syncretisitic forms of Islam, (such as Sufism) do that. For sure, Hamas would not protect Joseph's tomb.

A couple different things of the Muslim version of the Joseph story--first, he's considered the most handsome/beautiful man who ever lived, and Muhammad said he was the most honorable as well. Also, unlike the Torah version, the Quran has dad Jacob telling Joseph not to tell his brothers about his dream of the stars, sun, and moon, and Joseph obeying. The Qur'an has Joseph's death being rigged during a sporting competition. And Qur'an 12:101 (see link) has Joseph calling himself a Muslim.

Before the Jews of Diaspora began returning to Yisrael, the dome of the rock sat with vines and weeds overtaking the structure. There are published photographs from various countries all showing the same lack of care. Even Mark Twain published his observations on this; although he was more concerned over the historically Jewish/Christian sites. Then, when Muslims observed the passion in returning Jews for the site, all of a sudden it became the “3rd most holy site”. The name Yerushalayim or “Jerusalem” is NO WHERE TO BE FOUND IN THE QURAN! It is mentioned over 900 times in the Bible. The Muslims do not love these Jewish sites otherwise they would not destroy them! They don’t believe that Yosef Ben Ya’acov was Muslim; if they did WHY DESTROY AND DISHONOR HIS BURIAL SITE?! They just don’t want Yisrael to have them! Even if we were to purchase an undiscovered island somewhere and re-name that place “New Israel”, all of a sudden, THAT place would be the “4th holiest site in Islam”. This is a global psychosis shared by these people concerning Israel. These grave destroying lunatics are psychotic! Golda M., former Prime Minister of Yisrael (of Blessed Memory) was right! There will be peace in Yisrael when our enemies start loving their own children more than they hate ours!” Visit http://www.pmw.org.il/ and see how they teach their own smallest children to seek suicide deaths. And the western world is so cowarded, they rationalize this insanity! We need to take off our plastic lips and stop kissing up to psychotics. Look at the reasoning or lack of reasoning. Islam DID NOT EXIST when Yosef (Joseph) was alive. How could he be part of a religion that did not exist. And WHY would he not follow after his own Semite heritage?! Even a moran should know that just because someone submits to G-D does not make them a “Muslim”. Islam may mean “submit”, BUT, the Muslim definition of “submission” DOES NOT fit Joseph or any other figure in the Scriptures! So I wish they would stop insulting Bible figures by labeling them as muslims. Fact is, there are NO worthwhile figures in Islam, so they have no choice but to steal some from Judaism!
