Palestinian rioters vandalized Joshua’s Altar in the West Bank, a revered site for Jews and Christians.

The altar at Mount Ebal was damaged by burning tires, spray-painted flags, and Arabic inscriptions.

This incident reflects a pattern of attacks on Jewish and Christian holy places, indicating a desire to erase their historical presence. (Trending: Chilling Arrest Footage of Trump Co-Defendant Provides Glimpse Into Jack Smith Probe)

Rev. Petra Heldt, a leading Christian scholar, said, “Unfortunately, Jewish and Christian holy places are repeatedly targeted by Muslim settlers, such as the Tomb of Rachel near Bethlehem, the Tombs of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Sarah, Lea, and Rebecca in Hebron, the Tomb of Josef in Shechem (Nablus) and many others.”

“It is a consistent pattern that shows that there is a wish to eliminate the existence of Jewish and Christian history in Eretz Israel, the historic land of the Jewish people. Therefore, this holy place must be secured, like other holy places in Israel, from Palestinian vandalism,” he continued.

“The grave incident that took place this week is a direct result of the lack of Jewish presence on this hill,” wrote the Forum for the Struggle for Every Dunam.

“Today, it is clearer than ever that only the fixed Jewish presence of a farm or town will guarantee there is really control over the site, and prevent further damage or destruction of the altar,” continued the organization.

“The altar goes back to the time of Joshua (1400 BC) who led the Jewish people from exile into the Promised Land,” said Heldt.

“It is immediately necessary that the site should get proper protection from such vandalism. A permanent Jewish presence established on and around Mount Ebal will permanently secure that holy place for Jews and Christians,” he continued.

Calls for increased protection and a permanent Jewish presence on the site have been made to prevent further vandalism and secure the area for both communities.
