Israel destroys synagogue near Judaism's 2nd holiest site

Israeli security forces today, under orders from the detestable Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, amassed in Hebron – the world's oldest Jewish city – where they destroyed a synagogue and forcibly evicted two Jewish families from a Jewish-owned market place located within the city's Jewish community.

Two Jewish families. In the meantime, arab squatters infest the Holy City of Hebron, but the diseased Israel government evicts two Jewish families. Never before in history has there been a nation that evicts its own citizens in order to pander to its enemies.

Hebron is home to the Tomb of the Patriarchs, the second holiest site in Judaism. The tomb is believed to be the resting place of the biblical patriarchs and matriarchs Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca and Leah.

More than 3,000 Israeli solders and police officers surrounded a key section of Hebron's Jewish community today to expel the two Jewish families. The government maintains their residency in Hebron is illegal, since the families' arrival wasn't coordinated with the Israeli military. The families say they moved in after the military reneged on an agreement.

The families' eviction was widely regarded in Israel as the opening salvo of more planned major evacuations of Jews living in the West Bank's biblical Jewish communities.
