Joseph’s Tomb Desecrated again

Over 2,500 worshippers were allowed into Joseph’s tomb in Shchem for a prayer service Wednesday night, and were shocked to find the entrance suffused with urine, and windows blackened following an attempted arson. Samaria maintenance rapidly washed down the area and the service continued uninterrupted. Samaria regional Council Chairman Gershon Mesika reflected, “Only inhuman barbarians could desecrate so holy a place.”
