Obama is Demanding Israel Give the Tomb of Jesus [and More] to Hamas Terrorists |

Obama is Demanding Israel Give the Tomb of Jesus [and More] to Hamas Terrorists |

I keep pinching myself. This cannot be happening. American liberal [idiot] Jews for Obama, how CAN you support this president?

Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit has such a shocking, distressing post that I am printing the pictures and post here. They have so much impact taken as a whole.

Barack Obama can be seen as nothing but an enemy of Israel and of any American who treasures our bond with a truly Democratic ally. In a harshly-worded speech today, the president of the United States demanded Israel turn over the holiest shrines in the world to….Islamic terrorists who are pledged to destroy Israel. I keep pinching myself.

Jim’s post is based on his personal travel photos to Israel:

Today when Barack Obama told Israel to move back to the 1967 borders he effectively gave half of Jerusalem, the Wailing Wall, The Temple Mount, Old Jerusalem, The holiest Christian Church in the world, The Church of the Holy Sepulchre to the Hamas-Fatah terror alliance. This is what Barack Obama wants to giveto Hamas.

I traveled to Jerusalem in 2007.

The Golden Gates (the two enclosed arches on the Eastern Wall) were cemented shut centuries ago to prevent the prophets from returning to the Temple Mount.

The olive trees in the Garden of Gethsemane are around 2,000 years old.

Originally built by the mother of Emperor Constantine in 330 A.D., theChurch of the Holy Sepulcher (Church of the Holy Sepulchre) commemorates the hill of crucifixion and the tomb of Christ’s burial. Greek Orthodox, Catholic, Armenian, Syrian, Coptic, and Ethiopian Churchescelebrate this holy place as the site as the death and the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Oil lamps hang outside the Holy Sepulchre.

The Wailing Wall or Western Wall of the Temple. (FYI: Window on the Wall carries live video feed from the Wailing Wall.)

Young IDF members were visiting the Western Wall.

The Western Wall (Hebrew: הכותל המערבי, translit.: HaKotel HaMa’aravi), or simply The Kotel, is a retaining wall in Jerusalem that dates from the time of the Jewish Second Temple (516 BCE – 70 CE). It is sometimes referred to as the Wailing Wall (Arabic: il-Mabka), referring to Jews mourning the destruction of the Temple. The Western Wall is part of the bigger religious site in the Old City of Jerusalem called Har ha-Bayit (the Temple Mount) to Jews and Christians, or Al-Haram al-Qudsi al-Sharif (the Noble Sanctuary) to Muslims. The Western Wall is revered for its proximity to the sacred Holy of Holies on the Temple Mount, which is the Most Holy Place in Judaism.

This makes the Western Wall the holiest location in Judaism that is currently generally accessible to the Jewish people for prayer. Obama wants to give this to Hamas. Where’s the outrage?
