2. Josph, the one who screwed Egypt after Jews screwed him.
Michael ,   California, USA   (03.08.12)
Oy, what a tzadik. What an example to young and old. Imagine, a chosen person, a light to gentiles. I feel sorry for the Egyptians till this day. And I feel sorry for the idiot Breslavers.
3. Fortify Haj Square as a response.
BUTSeriously ,   Australia   (03.08.12)
Christianity, which is a greater and more credible world religion never stooped to this Arab level. The horrible negation of the Jews' revered prophet must be responded to with no compromise and no respect shown for Islam also.
4. Access to holy sites
Matthias ,   Switzerland   (03.08.12)
How dare the Jews trying to pray at their holy site! After all, access to the holy sites concerns only the Muslims and Christian, but never the Jews (see on the Temple Mount, for example.)
5. The questions that comes to mind
Ian ,   Newcastle upon Tyne   (03.08.12)
What's the harm and why prevent them? This PA seems to act according to a perverted system of logic. THREE CHEERS FOR ISRAEL!!!
6. An important question
Abu Yussef al Yahudi ,   Bue_Aires-Argentina   (03.08.12)
The final question that isn't answered in the article - Will the PA allow the Jews to pray at this Jewish Holy Place, without any harm to the prayers ? - I wonder !
7. I love these guys, talk about DEVOTION>>>WOW
Joseph ,   Brotherhood, Israel   (03.08.12)
michael in cali what hole were you born in that didn't receive much love in your heart? Have you no hope in life that you forswear your brethren good and bad, and stalk them on the internet from your comfy confines in the diaspora? wake up man, we are your family.
8. Put up bars at islamic sites too??????????
Stupidity ,   This is   (03.08.12)
9. Hassidem verses Palestinian troops
Haim ,   TA   (03.08.12)
Good luck Palestinian troops
10. Perversion
Vladimir ,   Yerushalayim   (03.08.12)
"Such past incidents have caused clashes between the hassidim and Palestinian troops, with one tragic clash ending in the death of Breslover Ben-Yosef Livnat". False statement! No clashes! The chassidim never clashed with the Palestian troops - they are not armed and they don't seek conflicts - their only wish is to pray peacefully at the Jewish religious site. Ben-Yosef Livnat didn't simply "die", rather he was murdered by the Arab guards in cold blood. I wonder, Y-Net is an Israeli or a Palestian source?
11. security measures
mat ,   uk   (03.08.12)
the palistinians are experimenting for the future how it will work and it could be things to come israel should do the same and see what the palistinians say
12. Tombs
Jarvis ,   Joseph USA   (03.08.12)
Where are the tombs of the prophets? Torah prohibits the worship of tombs that's why we don't know the where the prophets are. If your g-d is a rock go pray there. The L-rd is My Rock , I would never seek to visit any tomb. Even If I bury my loved one there would be no second visit. Burn it! This is why The L-rd doesn't tell you where the prophets died, because you would make and Idol of that place. Burn it!
13. isn't praying INSIDE tombs idol worshiping?
observer ,   Egypt   (03.08.12)
isn't idolatry worshiping prohibited in the Torah?
14. neither Muslims, nor Jews should be allowed inside tomb
observer ,   Egypt   (03.08.12)
they can pray at (outside) tomb, so that they wouldn't breach the Islamic or the Jewish law.
15. Fine example of Arabs "sharing" control of holy sites!
Carl ,   USA   (03.08.12)
This should be held up to UNESCO and the rest of the UN as an example of Palestinian "respect" for Jewish holy sites. It will only get worse if they are ever granted more authority. And to #2, Michael, not sure what you're talking about. Joseph held no grudges against his brothers and was elevated as second only to Pharoh. He saved the entire Egyption nation and the Hebrews from starvation.
16. Joseph's Tomb Standoff
ltrail ,   United States   (03.08.12)
So, why can't the PA have a 24/7 operation at the tomb to permit those who want to come and pray, pray when they want to? That would be a great compromise.
17. Why the PA?
manicdrummer ,   Galilee   (03.08.12)
Shouldn't Israelis be guarding the tomb instead?
18. #7, I wish you deserved love in my heart.
Michael ,   California, USA   (03.08.12)
Try to do something about it Joseph, gain my love. Yes, you can! But do stay safe and don't rely on a brother who will schnorr out what belongs to others. You see, it's not forgotten after thousands of years.
19. Michael in Cali
Joseph ,   brotherhood, Israel   (03.08.12)
Brother you don't sound grounded bro, its hard to follow what you are writing. Shal-OME ;)
20. #2 The Egyptians are no more. They are gone.
BH ,   Iowa   (03.08.12)
The people today who live in Egypt and call themselves Egyptians are Arabs.
21. muslims restrict jews from worship in Israel
bernard ross ,   st anns bay, jamaica   (03.09.12)
An example of muslim sovereignty over jewsih sites.. The entire city should be rendered free of those who restrict jewish worship
22. Joseph's Tomb
Leon ,   Grand Rapids USA   (03.09.12)
It's not's Shechem !
23. they have tried to sneak in and out since the murder
enough already   (03.09.12)
