'Palestinian Authority,' with European assistance, strategically housing 'Palestinians' to cut off Kiryat Arba from the Machpeila Cave in Hebron

With the assistance of the European Union, the 'Palestinian Authority' has been moving 'Palestinians' into housing among the Jewish community of Hebron. If enough 'Palestinians' move in, it may cut off the Jewish suburb of Kiryat Arba from the Machpeila Cave (tomb of the Patriarchs) and from the Jewish community in Hebron.
A security source revealed on Sunday that in the last year and a half, the Palestinian Authority, through a body named “the council to rehabilitate the old city”, has begun to house Arabs in areas of Hevron inhabited by Jews.

“These houses, previously uninhabited, have been filled with Arabs who were 'imported' from west Hevron, Beit Kahel, and Halhoul, some of which were previously engaged in terror activity or have served time in Israeli prisons for criminal offenses,” said the source and added: “The Palestinian Authority's move is part of a clear strategy that no one denies: it is creating a separation between Kiryat Arba and Hevron.”

The source noted that “The Palestinian Authority has understood that terrorist attacks will not stop the approximately 600,000 Jews who visit the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hevron each year, and has concluded that there is a need to house hundreds of families in the eastern Casbah in order to create separation.”

“Already in recent months,” added the source, “we have witnessed significant friction in the area between Arabs and the IDF and the Border Police as well as with the local Jewish residents and outside guests. Beyond the friction there have been several attacks of pedestrians on Shabbat, and some vehicles have been stoned at the crossing near the eastern Casbah.”

In summary, the source said that “This situation brings the Tomb of the Patriarchs, which is a heritage site, into a most serious security situation. Instead of having the tombs of our forefathers accessible to every Jew at any day and hour, coordination of the arrival of Jews in the Tomb of the Patriarchs will be required and the PA would thus succeed in keeping so many Jews away from the Cave of the Patriarchs.”
And the Israeli government still worries about what Europe thinks. What could go wrong?

Yup... the Israeli government is so cowed by Europe it rejected a proposal to end the occupation of the revanants and its afraid to replace the roof on the tomb of Israel's ancestors at the Cave Of Machepela.

What could go wrong indeed
