Shechem Task Force: Joseph's Tomb Roadblocks an Outrage


The Shechem Task Force said, Thursday that the Wednesday-evening arrest of 15 youths at the Tomb of Joseph and roadblocks to Jews trying to visit the site were outrageous.

The group, which advocates the return of a full-time Israeli presence to the holy site, issued a statement which read, "We call on all relevant entities to immediately stop all cooperation, coordination and acceptance of surrender edicts from the Israel Police. We all must stand firm to aggressively demand to return to Shechem and renew the [Israeli] presence at the Tomb of Joseph."
