There’s a story that was posted yesterday on Maariv’s website that is nothing short of chilling.
It seems that as part of the preparations for a possible withdrawal from Gaza, the military rabbinate is busy drawing up plans to dig up the Jewish cemetery in Gush Katif and remove the 43 graves contained there (which include those of people killed by Palestinian terrorists as well as 4 Israeli soldiers).
Unnamed sources in the military rabbinate told Maariv that “this is an extremely sensitive subject, since Jewish law speaks against removing the dead from his burial place.”
The article also notes that the military rabbinate will not compel family members to agree to move the graves of their loved ones, but they will “recommend” such a step.
It probably hasn’t occurred to our courageous leaders – but what does it all this say about our ostensible Palestinian partners? They won’t let us live in peace, and they won’t even let our dead rest in peace.
And if that is the case, giving them still more territory from which to attack the Jewish state hardly seems like a wise move to make.
