A United Nations anti-racism panel is scheduled to hold a hearing later this week over Israel’s attitude toward sites considered holy by its Arab population.
The panel of 18 independent experts overseeing compliance with the United Nations’ 38-year-old anti-racism treaty has submitted questions in writing on Israel’s policy for preserving holy sites and asked the government to explain why it only grants special protection for places considered sacred by Jews. — Ha’aretz (AP)
Please explain why allowing a hostile body like the Islamic Waqf complete control over a Muslim site which is also the holiest of all Jewish sites is not ‘special protection’?
Has the panel also asked the PA about the destruction of Joseph’s Tomb shown in the photo above?
