Bethlehem: Muslim mob throws pipe bombs, fire bombs and rocks at soldiers guarding Jewish shrine

“Thou wilt surely find the most hostile of men to the believers are the Jews…” (Qur’an 5:82)

As a result of the Qur’an’s demonization of the Jews, usually it’s the other way around: the most hostile of men to the Jews are the Muslims.

“50 Arabs Attack Rachel’s Tomb,” by Gil Ronen for Israel National News, January 16 (thanks to Voice of the Copts):

About 50 Arabs mounted an assault on Rachel’s Tomb, just outside Bethlehem, Wednesday evening. They threw pipe bombs, fire bombs and rocks at the security forces guarding the compound, injuring one soldier lightly.

The soldier, who was hit by a rock, received medical treatment on the spot and did not require hospitalization.

The IDF Spokesman said that the Arabs threw nine pipe bombs and 18 fire bombs. One of the pipe bombs caused some damage to the security wall surrounding the complex.

The IDF Spokesman said that the soldiers are using riot dispersal gear against the attackers.

In past years, any large scale attack with explosives and fire bombs would in all probability have been repelled with live fire. However, the IDF is shackled by a Military Attorney’s Office and State Attorney’s Office that often prosecute soldiers for opening fire against attackers unless they can prove a clear and present danger to their lives.

    If a non-muslim commits this kind of atrocity in a muslim nation what will happen?

    Showing restraint is a Zionist plot don’t-cha know!? Their agents stir-up the peaceful populace with hate-filled rhetoric. They use the Qur’an(It’s as easy as stamping a message into a lump of clay) to incite violence against a disproportionally superior force. No wait…even better… Ah ,ah…their restraint was disproportionate those clever bast**ds, the peaceful Palestinians made to look like savages!! The Slaves of Allah haven’t got a prayer. I bend my knee to the web they weave.

    I, for one, look forward to the time in which Bethlehem will be a quiet and peaceful suburb of the Israel’s capitol, Jerusalem, and the decimated Christian population is ensured a safe return.

    Muslims always claim that they respect the figures of the Torah as Muslim prophets”but when push comes to shove, they usually just regard them as “filthy Jews”.

    And why not? The Muslim claim on Jewish religious figures is more a gesture of supremacism than a genuine show of respect.

    *Exactly*. So much of this is projection. Muslims have to pretend to be victims even when they are at their most savage.

    And this is hardly the first time Muslims have attacked the tombs of the patriachs”here’s a story from two years ago:

    And doesn’t anyone understand that this will just enable the Jihadists further? This was a coordinated attack by *50 Muslims*”and this is not a large site.

    Right now, this lovely little site is surrounded by cement barriers and blast shields, as well as the aforementioned armed IDF personnel. And that’s because it has to be.

    As it is, these tombs and caves have been terribly damaged by Muslims seeking their destruction.

    If there is ever a “Palestinian state” where Israel can no longer protect these sites, how long will they last? My guess is not very long…

    Obviously, rocks and pipe bombs and fire bombs thrown at one are not clear and present dangers to anyone’s life. Do the dhimmi lawyers have a policy on tossed Twinkies and Danishes? How about blown kisses from the Muslims?
