Orthodox Union Commends PM Netanyahu Regarding Stance on Holy Sites

Posted on November 1, 2010 In Press Releases

Yesterday Israel’s Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu called the decision of a United Nations body to define the Cave of the Patriarchs and Rachel’s Tomb as Palestinian “absurd.”

The Orthodox Union commends Prime Minister Netanyahu on his strong stance to protect these important Jewish sites. As mentioned in the Torah, the Jewish forefather’s rightfully purchased these burial sites. The grave sites of our ancestors are of major religious significance to the Jewish people and therefore should remain in the hands of the Jewish State of Israel.
